Links of Love
[dropcap1 variation=”red”]W[/dropcap1]e are very excited to have Jimmie Young to be our speaker this year. Jimmie lived in Anchorage for many years where her husband served as an elder. They lived in Fairbanks where their three children were born. Jimmy currently lives in Tennessee. Jimmie will be talking to us about our need to be links of love, what are links of love, and most importantly, how can we be links of love.
During this special time, we will be sharing with our sisters through singing, fellowship, prayer requests, studying God’s Word, and other activities such as Moonlight Madness. Plan now to be part of this year’s event. We ask you to join with the members of the committee in praying for the success of this retreat and we encourage you to invite your sisters and friends.
Dress is casual, so plan to be comfortable. You do not have to stay overnight at the building, but two rooms will be provided for those who want to. One room is “lights out” at 11:00, and the other is at 2:00. If you are sleeping at the church building, remember to bring a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, pillow, toiletries, and any personal essentials you’ll need.
This is a great time to encourage your husband to spend some extra special time with your children. This is also a good time for husbands to support women who need child care during the weekend.
[note_box]This retreat is for women, high school age and up. Based upon past evaluations, the elders request there be no children in attendance.[/note_box]
