This seven session coaching program will help you create a unique speech that you can deliver to any audience at any time. We'll start with your core principles and values, and from that base we'll coach you through the process as we help you create a speech that you'll be proud to deliver. We'll work on your timing, body movements, storytelling skills and everything you need to feel confident presenting your speech to any group.
Often we "know" that God loves us, but we don't fully experience it. What would it be like to live in a space of being so present to Divine love that it is alive and personal? Imagine experiencing God's love as a radiance that enfolds, brightens and uplifts you. Our guided 8-hour Advent Retreat of Silence has been designed to introduce you to practices that will help you make God's abundant love alive in your life.
Author and speaker, Karen Mains, along with her daughter, Melissa Timberlake, a professional life coach, will facilitate an intimate retreat that teaches you to draw love from the One whom Scripture tells us is perfect love. Turtle Creek Acres provides an ideal setting to find the time to begin this personal Advent journey. All food served will be organic, vegan, and gluten-free.
It's been said, "Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God's love encompasses us completely." Allowing God's love to be made alive within you is what this Advent retreat is all about. It’s designed to help you renew yourself in His love as you are enveloped in a place of calm, of quiet. and of beauty. If you need time to renew, but can’t get away for several days or even for 24 hours, this 8-hour guided retreat will prove to be a restorative gift.
