Group Discussions & Devotions

Emily Thomas of The Mom Struggling Well Podcast

& Meg Duerksen in the kitchen cooking up amazing homemade meals for us..3 times a day!

“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special.  It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things.  Nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.”  

 Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveliness

There is something amazing that happens when Art & Faith Collide and when you are in an amazing house full of women, food, coffee, snacks, paints and time to be quiet, restore, rest, stay up late, wake up early, wear your jammies all day long...
 
It's just really good.  
 
That is the best way to explain it because honestly, there are not words to go along with what happens...and ya know what else?  Jesus shows up every.single.time.
 
Here is what is included in Creative Soul Camp 

Meals  - Each day you will get to enjoy amazing and fresh meals prepared just for you. Yep, three meals a day so be ready to eat.  Leave your diets at home and bring your stretchy pants.  In between there will be a ridiculous array of salty and sweet snacks and apples, coffee, water and tea with bags of sonic ice of course.

Lodging – The Craft House is located in Newton, Kansas.  It is a 100 year old restored home that is used for retreats and sleeps 16. Upstairs there are four beautifully decorated bedrooms.  Each room has between 2 – 6 twin beds.  It will be hard to pick just one because they are each crazy cute. Be prepared for late night giggles and some early rising roommates.  There are three full bathrooms that will be shared.
