2019 Theme

Writing the Song of Your Life

Imagine you're sitting on the deck having a cookout with your friends and the song of your life starts playing on the radio. Your life is a song, and it's playing for the world to hear. Do you want to turn it up or turn it off? Do you like how it sounds, or is it time to do some rewriting? Are you singing the song God has given you to sing, or are you singing a solo?

Featured Speakers

Jill Miller


Jill Miller is an energetic person with a zest for life that's contagious and who loves sharing how God has worked in her life. Through her music ministry, she shares her personal struggles honestly and never pretends to have all the answers or have it all together. She's simply a friend telling her story, hoping it will touch your heart, encourage you in your struggles and inspire you to keep moving forward and reaching for your full potential. 

Jill and her husband John have four adult sons and two rescue dogs, Willie and Waylon. 

Margaret Darnell


If your schedule allows, join us on Friday afternoon for bonus sessions led by Margaret Darnell. Margaret  invites you to slow down, open your heart and begin to listen for the message God has specifically planned for you in the rest of the weekend's events.  These afternoon sessions will be held at Immanuel Christian Reformed Church, 601 Union Ave in Sheldon.

Margaret is a devoted wife and mother, married to her husband, Michael, for more than 30 years. They have four adult children.

This is the fifth edition of Ladies Spring Escape. If you've participated before 

you can expect many popular features of previous retreats. 

To keep the weekend fresh, new items are being added as well. 

If this is the first time you've considered attending, we are thrilled at the prospect of pampering,

 nurturing and encouraging you in your Christian walk. 

Join us as we discover how to experience the journey, rather than just going along for the ride.
