Editorial Reviews

Arts & Media
This practical planner gives nuts-and-bolts tips on how to put together a weekend women's retreat, from selecting an inspirational speaker to picking accommodations to figuring out the budget.
— Robin Galiano Russell
Lexington Herald-Leader
"The authors explain how to recruit a retreat-planning team that will consider the variety of needs in a congregation, from the newcomer to the woman in crisis. Like a wedding planner, it has a helpful countdown to the event, with things to do beginning with six months from the date. But the most helpful section is the one on sample retreat themes, complete with scripts for skits that are actually funny, and ideas for decorations and entertainment."
