#Goals #relationshipgoals #squadgoals
#fitnessgoals #travelgoals #outfitgoals
All of these hashtags are trending on social media these days and even more. But what #goals are really worth aspiring to? This one night getaway is designed to reconsider, refocus and reset what is a must and priority for the woman who desires true joy, peace and contentment. We want to redefine the #goals we are seeking and prioritizing. We know what we deeply long for is found in Jesus and so this retreat we are going to set out to live on purpose with our whole being: mind, heart, hands and feet. Our desire is to leave this weekend set ablaze from times of worship and renewal and to leave set with #goals that make pursuing Jesus more tangible in our lives.
Registration closes September 15 at 11:30pm

Cynthia was born and raised in Chicago, the second of four siblings. As a teen, she attended various youth services with friends and shortly after made a decision to follow Jesus. She later attended Olivet Nazarene Unviersity and earned a bachelor's degree in Social and Political Science. Since then, she has served in various worship contexts as a singer, leader, songwriter, and blogger. She authored a blog entitled "Undignified Worship", and has written and recorded worship. Her passion is singing to God with her whole heart, as well as leading others in lifting high the name of Jesus in song. Cynthia currently serves in the worship ministry at her local church, and she lives in Chicago with her husband and four children.
Monica a writer, speaker, visionary and activist; this as well several movements she’s entirely passionate about, Mónica Rodriguez is Lead Dreamer at Re|Defined Table; a Collaboration Movement for Empowering Women. Leaving her mark on her part of the globe and beyond, Mónica keeps her hands full as a Servant Leader. With her many initiatives from Co-Creating nonprofit, Project 214 with family, to creativity and marketing at The Miracle Center; toss in a bit of church planting, living green awareness and taking pictures, truly her jam circles back to servanthood! A wife and mother of three, you’ll hear her refer to her children as her mission. Her heart is to build honest community, especially among women and moms. This has compelled her to not only create a table and platform where any woman can pull up a chair, but feel inspired and empowered to sit at tables with likeminded world changers.
Erikah is passionate about living life with women and helping them grow as followers of Jesus. 5 years ago she and her husband planted The Brook, a diverse church in Chicago’s northwest side. In 2003, Erikah earned her BA in Bible Theology from Moody Bible Institute, which shaped her desire to increase biblical literacy among women in the Church. Erikah has led and taught mom’s groups, women’s retreats, small groups, and various other ladies’ gatherings and is now, with Eric, on the national speaker team for Family Life’s Weekend To Remember marriage getaways. This year she and her husband Eric celebrated 15 years of marriage and together they are parents to Keziah (11), Lukas (10), and Levi (6). Some of her greatest enjoyments come through serving and supporting alongside her husband in pastoral ministry, home educating her children, and a daily morning cup of coffee with Jesus.
