On November 8th, 23 ladies came to spend the weekend in the Byers Conference Center for our first Bible Journaling Retreat. Tess Crawford spent the weekend teaching the ladies how to connect with God in a creative way.
People from all backgrounds and from every place in their journey with Jesus are finding this tactile form of worship refreshing and engaging. Tess Crawford, Recess with Jesus, expanded her monthly class into this three-day retreat to give those who have been Bible journaling for a long time and those who are looking to try it for the first time a time away to spend with God.
The retreat focused on worship through Bible journaling but also included teaching times where Tess taught new and different techniques and materials to use in Bible journaling. The weekend also included some great times of fellowship and connecting with friends old and new over wonderful meals in the Commons.
In reviewing the weekend Tess remarked, ” I am grateful that we could partner together and with the Lord to make space for 24 ladies to retreat into fellowship with Jesus and each other with paints and pens and all kinds of sparkly things.”
