Retreat and Speaking Topics

These are designed for one or two-night retreats. All of these topics could be condensed, or one portion used, for shorter events as well.

Do you feel dry, parched, and thirsty for a fresh touch from God? This retreat helps participants defind what true Biblical refreshment really is, and to identify specific areas where dryness is creeping in. Participants leave with a practical plan for finding God's refreshing in their lives. It is ideal for the mature Christian or the new believer alike.
Refresh: A Marriage Retreat
All marriages need to be refreshed from time to time! Maria, along with her husband, Ken, lead couples to remember the gift that God has given them in one another. Couple have one-on-one time as well as group time, and leave with a new sense of purpose and renewal in their marriage.
The Heart of the Matter
As a believer, our heart is key to every area of life. How do we allow Christ—not our emotions, our past, or our circumstances—to fill our hearts? Participants leave with practical plans for spiritual growth, and a fresh understanding of God’s desire to use our hearts as His home.
Balancing Act (Perfect for a half-day or one-day event)
Why is it so hard to find balance in life? Is there anyway to really get it all done? In the Bible, it is clear that we either STAND, or we FALL. This retreat is delves into these two concepts, & leaves women with a clear-cut plan for standing tall, regardless of life’s ups and downs.
Love and Encouragement
As followers of Jesus, we are to be known by our love, unity, and encouragement.  In this retreat, Maria walks groups through the source of love and of encouragement, as well as how to give and receive both.  Participants are encouraged to leave with specific actions to show and love and encouragement in their homes, churches, communities, and other roles God has entrusted to them.
