God is both the beginning and the end! His Word and Promises become our compass and guide for our Journey into Sacred Sufficiency.  Along the way, you’ll explore the Truth of Who You Are, becoming more familiar and more intimately aware of how to appreciate and excavate the gifts of your sacred self.

What Is Sacred Sufficiency?

Sacred Sufficiency is a way of relating with myself from a place of enough; believing myself to be enough. We are sufficient because of who we are. Our sufficiency (or enough-ness) has nothing to do with what we do, how we look, how much we accomplish or any of the “personal value metrics” that our societal culture has us buy into.

We are sufficient because that is how our Creator made us. Our sufficiency has everything to do with who we are according to GOD, not according to this mixed-up world.

So, who does God say you are?

In Psalm 17, He says that you are the apple of His eye.

In Deuteronomy 7:6 He says that you are His treasured possession.

In Jeremiah 1:5 He speaks of knowing you intimately:  Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
    before you were born I set you apart.

In 2 Thessalonians 2:13 He chose you: …because God has chosen you from the beginning…

And that’s barely the beginning. Your worth to God is spoken of in so, so many more places in His sacred scripture.

One of my favorites is Psalm 139, verses 13 through 16. Here God makes it crystal clear that we were each designed skillfully, secretly, with great intention, by our Creator. And, before we were even born, he took care to ponder, fashion, and write about every single day of our lives in His book:

“For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.”

Can there be any doubt that you are so special, so dear, so important to GOD? How is it that we struggle so to embrace this divine reality? Sacred Sufficiency is our birthright and it is time we reclaim it.

During our 3-days together, we will look at, explore, and experiment with just how to do this. I’ll let you in on a big secret: HOW begins in our relationship with ourselves. What does Sacred Sufficiency look like there? If Sacred Sufficiency were your normal modus operandi, what shifts would occur in your inner dialogue, your conversations with others, your energy, your stress, your self-care?

Come to Sacred Sufficiency – a life-changing, all-inclusive, 3-day experience for mothers.

Give yourself the gift of three amazing, purpose-full days, deep connection, learning, music, nature, art, honesty, growth, healing, and fun. Stand strong in the truth of who you are and learn to come from a position of inner strength.

As with all of our retreats, Sacred Sufficiency is a soulful, prayerful, musical, God-filled experience – whether we’re fanning the flames of your vibrant faith or providing the spark to rekindle one that is smoldering, these three days will take you deeper.

Come join us in a life-changing, 3-day Sacred Circle. Be prepared to expand and to have fun!

I am enough
