Here's what others are saying about their time away with God

at a Dare to Be Still weekend:

“This whole retreat was very fulfilling and an experience I would like to make part of my life on a daily basis. I feel that I need to set aside a quiet time each day to be with the Lord one-on-one.

Thank you so much for this experience!”

“He met me and led me and washed over me in so many ways. He healed old wounds and showed me a path and direction for my future. He gave me renewed faith in myself and my abilities.

 

I felt him in the wind that pushed me, the rain that cleansed me, and the waves that washed away my worries. This weekend restored my soul, showed me my purpose, and gave me courage to accomplish my innermost desires.”​​

“Unplugging can be scary, but Clarice is warm, reassuring, and full of practical ideas about how to meet with God during the retreat time.”    

- Kristin W.

“If you are interested in a life-changing retreat . . . I promise you’ll walk away  having a deeper, more intimate relationship with the Lord!” 

- Kim D.

“I have never had an experience like this before. I have heard God and felt him speak before, but nothing like this! I am so excited to grow closer to Him, to my husband and to find myself in all of this as well. God is Good!”

“This time was so valuable.To sit still, to be quiet, to escape schedule/worry, no demands for my attention. Ahhh! Deep sigh of relief…

I feel like I’m all re-filled and my perspective is re-aligned.”

“I came not knowing what I’d be getting. But I was weary. Tired of the hurried schedule, the fighting children, the illness. Tired of investing in people who only eventually leave, and wondering if it’s all worth the effort.

I spent time in the quiet outdoors wondering if I really mattered. Does the life I live actually make a difference? Then Jesus showed up. It matters because I matter to Him.”

“What a lovely peaceful time away from distractions and responsibilities to concentrate on God and my relationship with Him. Do I have to leave?”

________________

The Lord has been calling me to come and just be with Him – to come and just BE. It’s clear to me that I just need to begin this new journey. I have been dragging my feet. I know where I’m to meet with Him. Now I just need to start.

________________

“This weekend the Lord talked to me about slowing my pace, how I’ve had the tendency to use work and technology as a distraction instead of looking to my Father for help… I am like a prodigal daughter this weekend, realizing how very little I know about a Father who loves me more than I can fathom.”

_________________

“Some truths I’ve considered about myself and about God have been very confusing. In the very process of being here and silent and listening to God,

He became more real.”

_________________

“It was clearly God’s direction that brought me here, but I came with my own question. God told me that was ok, but I had to set aside how I thought He would answer…I have a new starting point, a new direction, and a new goal for every day and everything I do.”

"I so appreciate that Clarice [Aeby} shared her journey and invited us to join her."

“We were asked to leave our burdens at the door, but those were the very things I need to pray through, and my heart is much lighter now.”

_________________

I spent time wondering if I really mattered. Does the life I live actually make a difference? Then Jesus showed up. It matters because I matter to Him. I am looking forward to developing rhythms of time with Him in the realness of life.

“I felt the Lord say that I just needed to show up for the weekend, that He was doing all the planning. I brought a few things but was grateful to come and just receive.“

_________________

“I eagerly came this weekend to seek and spend 24 hours alone with my Lord Freed from distractions of daily life: laundry, dishes, work, people . . . I came and God showed up! Of course, He has always been there but I often forget to just sit and listen.“

_________________

“The Lord met me where I needed Him today. I came wanting clarity on some tough situations I’m going through. Clarice asked us to write out our expectations and leave them. I did. YET . . . the Lord addressed them. My circumstances didn’t change, but my understanding did.“

“My day with God has been amazing – to sit at his feet, learn his voice more clearly. To see myself through his eyes.”

_________________

“Because of this retreat, I believe trusting God and seeking Him will happen more quickly. Jesus is right there, available when I quiet my heart and see Him.”
