Katie's Story | Culinary & [BE] Nourished Workshops

I stepped into the Delight House after a year full of hurt and loss, and my heart was still recovering from unexpected events and emotional roller coasters. A few weeks before the workshop, I felt God calling me to release my pain and bitterness to Him, but I had been slowly giving it away piece by piece. I felt like I could still control my life and get everything back in order so that I could please God with my life. Little did I know that God just wanted to hold me so that I could rest in His grace. It’s funny how sometimes God takes you all the way across the country just so that He can show you that He is truly all you need.

Girl, Lose the Luggage

2,676.5 miles away from home, I find myself in the quaint, little Bavarian town of Leavenworth Washington. For this trip, for every trip, I pack literally everything. This includes and is not limited to make up, jewelry, clothes, shoes, hats, hair stuff, face products, those precious Young Living oils, your Bible you’ve had for over a decade, toiletries, a camera charger, retainers, you name it! Now, imagine getting to your final flight destination, going up to baggage claim and eagerly watching bag after bag come down the belt. Your bag must be last, right? It’s there, right? but it doesn’t ever come. The belt shuts off and the luggage-dropping port hole closes. You are immediately disheartened with an “oh no, this can’t be” stab in the gut kind of feeling.

From Anxiety to Freedom | Olivia's Story

It’s been a few weeks since I got back from the Delight Retreat and I still think about it every
day. It was one of the best experiences of my life, and I almost didn’t go. Not because I didn’t
think it would be fun, in fact, I thought it would be the trip of a lifetime. But, I struggle with an
anxiety disorder and the thought of flying across the country to spend the weekend with girls
I’d never met before was terrifying.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Skirt | Meet Amelia

The story of Amelia begins in May 2016 in a Gabriel Bros in WV. I wasn't looking for anything in particular on this shopping trip, but when my eyes saw this amazing, ten dollar skirt, my heart knew I had to have her. She was perfect in every way! I obviously bought her, and after that I took her on every trip that year. From South Carolina on a beach trip, to Pennsylvania to visit a friend, to Washington to attend a life changing workshop at the Delight House, to Tennessee to attend yet another amazing Delight retreat, and so so so many other places I love. My love for a silly thing such as a skirt is big!
