Shoreline Retreat pictures

This weekend we spoke at Shoreline Women's Spring
Retreat. We were so grateful for the opportunity
to speak to these women about "Growing Deeper".

We were able to take some pictures of the event.
Sorry if anybody was left out! We tried to get
pictures of all of these "new friends!"

We were so happy that two of our friends who
cover us in prayer, Karin and Kristi, could
be there with us.

Dawnielle was the MC for the event and we loved
her spirit! You could see how much she loves
Jesus and was the perfect MC.

Alisa started off the Retreat on Friday night and
spoke about "Preparing the Soil". She spoke about
engaging Jesus and cleaning out things that get in
the way of your relationship with our Loving God.

Mariah played some special music for the event.

Mariah spoke Saturday morning about "Protecting your
Garden" from the pests that can slowly creep in.
The two main areas of attack in our spiritual lives
are our enemy, Satan, and also our flesh. We need
to take up our weapon: the sword of the Spirit, which
is the Word of God and protect our hearts.

Zsanae spoke on "Nutrients needed for Growth" and
talked all about who God is and knowing His truth.
We first need to surrender, and know God's Word
so we can plant new seeds of truth. We need to
learn the names of God and have intimate prayer
lives. When we do that, we will realize that
we serve a BIG God and anything is possible with

Leah spoke on "Flourishing in the Garden" God's ways.
We can only flourish when we abide in Christ- stay
connected and close to Him. If we prepare the soil,
protect our hearts from the enemies, get news seeds
of truth as our nutrients, the result will be flourishing
for God. He created us to thrive and flourish!

We had awesome worship from with this worship
team pictured below.

We had lunch and dinner in this tent outside. The
food was delicios.

They had some skits that related to each topic
that were very funny. We are bummed we didn't
get any pictures of that.

We had great fellowship as we met new people.

It was a beautiful day in San Clemente and for
some group discussions we went outside to enjoy
the great weather.

We had the opportunity to be prayed over
by the intercessory prayer team at Heritage Church.
We were so blessed by that opporutnity along
with many of the women attending this retreat.

We saw the body of Christ working together as Heritage
Church allowed Shoreline to have this event in their

We were able to take communion together and come
before the Lord for cleansing and renewing.

We were able to listen to women share what God had
spoken to them during this retreat. This is one of
our favorite parts- to hear how God moves!

Even though we came to speak, we were ministered
to by the Lord. That will always happen to anyone
who is seeking the Lord.

We praised God together as we lifted our voices up
in worship.

A HUGE Thank You to the TEAM who put this event
together. All of us agree that this is one of
the best we've been to (speaking or attending).
We are sisters in the Lord and He received the
glory due to Him throughout this event.

Let's continue to grow deeper in Christ!
