What's in the Swagbags | Meet the 2019 Delight Retreat Sponsors

Hi friends, it’s Marcia here! We’ve been in full-stage recovery for what we like to call the '“post Delight Retreat hangover”, but I’m so excited to hop back on here between the naps and unpacking boxes to share with you about this year’s retreat sponsors. As we plan each event, we love to focus on making sure we cover the five love languages of our attendees, so no matter what each girl’s love language is- she’ll attend a retreat or workshop and feel so loved! YOU GUYS, I know I might be biased, but honestly the companies that loved on all of our attendees this year are incredible! We are so honored to have these amazing people & companies back the Delight Retreat and can 1000% recommend their products. Not only because the products are great, but the hearts behind them are even better.

Be The Girl Who Cheers On Others | By: Betsy Liechty

Who’s your biggest cheerleader? Maybe it’s a spouse, mom, dad, grandparent, or a friend. I will say without a doubt its definitely my husband. He is always yelling from the sidelines of life lines like… “keep going”, “Don’t quit”, “tomorrow you will do better” well you get the picture. It truly builds me up every time I need it. Truth is we all need someone to cheer us on or what the Bible calls; build us up!

Be The Girl Who Speaks Life | By: Janell Wood

This past autumn, I went to a one-day writing conference. It had been a couple months since I had started getting serious about my writing journey and to be honest, I felt a little lost in the process. While taking down notes, I silently prayed God would direct me through someone’s words. A few hours later, I was standing in line buying some books, and a woman stopped me.

Episode 4: Be The Girl Who Speaks Life

This can definitely be hard at times. Speaking life is not just something that is “good”, but necessary as followers of Christ. The tongue has the power to speak life and to speak death. On this episode we talk about how this has effected our own lives, what The Bible says, and encouraging you all in your own walks!

We hope this episode encourages you to speak life with everything that you have, and let Jesus speak life into your heart and mind as you carry this out in love.

The Way, The Truth, and The Life | Bridgette Rose

Everyone has a truth they live by. Some live by the saying “judge not”. Others live by being a “generally good person”. Some are environmentalists, and some humanitarians. Some live for their work and seek to be “true to their craft”. Some strive to be knowledgeable in all things - to pursue degrees in philosophy or literature; and others are in a fight for social justice aiming to portray tolerance and acceptance for all.

Episode 3: Be The Girl Who Holds Fast To Truth

Welcome to the THIRD episode of the Be The Girl Podcast. This week we are focusing on living a life that holds dearly to the truth that God and His word gives us.

This can be a difficult task you know? We are constantly bombarded with what our culture and world around us tells us on a daily basis, we are impacted by our own fears and anxieties, and we have an enemy who loves to distort truth to discourage the believer going after Christ.

Navigating The Season Of "Not Yet"

I let the tears come. I woke up that morning after weeks spent, not numbing my heart, but distracting my heart.  It’s good to be present to your season, but sometimes that being present also means being present to your pain. It’s always the in between spaces that are the hardest.  The Not-Yet season.  The season in between what has been promised to us and where we are now.  Harder than the in between space itself is navigating all the vast interior landscape within it.

Seek His Wisdom

The worst year of my life happened 3 years ago. It was 2016 and I truly had hit rock bottom. To say I was far away from Jesus was an understatement. Looking back now, I see the grace that God had on my life. The times where I’d cry out thinking there wasn’t an answer, sitting in silence waiting for something to come and save me.

Be The Girl Who Seeks Wisdom | By: Heather Craven

Growing up, my mom used to read a story about a king and his kingdom, complete with a princess and three daring young knights all hoping to win the fair maiden’s hand in marriage. One day, the prince challenged the brave knights to a quest that would reveal to his father the king, which of them was worthy of his sister's hand. The first knight was known for his strength, another for his swiftness, and the third for his wisdom.
