Located in Eastern Nebraska, you will have plenty of time on friday & sunday to visit both “JunkStock” and “Gatherings on the Blue” Flea Markets to get your fill of awesome junkin’! Retreat attendees will gather in the comfy Sjogren Center of the Carol Joy Holling Retreat Center in the beautiful wooded outdoor area near Ashland, Nebraska on friday evening. This relaxing evening is designed to meet new friends, enjoy a refreshment, dive into an easy self-reflecting art project and maybe even a little show & tell session from those that went Junkin’ all day!

9:00am – Discovering Your Strengths will be our morning workshop so once you understand your own personal power & edge, you can apply it to everything else we do throughout the retreat and your everyday life. Upon registration, you will receive a Clifton StrengthsFinders Assessment Code which can be used to complete the on-line assessment to find out your Top 5 out of 34 possible Talent Themes. As a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, Connie Gildersleeve will help you further explore these talent themes and your customized Theme Insight Report during our morning Strengths Workshop.

2:00 – She Did It Anyway is a module of the Brave Girls Soul Restoration Curriculum beautifully written and created by Melody Ross. Read more about this empowering workshop below. You will have the choice to do this course by making your own personal SHE DID IT ANYWAY® deck of cards, book, art journal or canvas which will reflect your SHE DID IT ANYWAY® story and art that corresponds with it.

In this empowering workshop, we will write the story of what we have overcome in life and how we will choose to guide our life in the future by continuing to climb every mountain and jump over every hurdle to live our dreams.
Every heroic woman has had to overcome adversity, challenges and failures…one common trait in all heroines is that they have all chosen to look their difficulties in the face and move forward toward their purpose anyway.
We will be creating a deck of SHE DID IT ANYWAY® cards, each telling the story of our own difficult challenges, and our resolve to live the life we want to live in spite of our challenges.
This course can also be done as an art journal, each page with a personal SHE DID IT ANYWAY® story and art that corresponds with it.
Truth Cards have been a part of Brave Girls Club from the beginning, and we have seen thousands of lives of women from all over the world (including ourselves!) healed in little and big ways from the powerful little truths on each card.
The idea for Truth Cards came as a way to overpower the awful script that sometimes runs in our head, preventing our souls from feeling whole or healed. Truth cards are little messages of love and truth that are written directly to our souls….telling us the TRUTH when we are believing words that are keeping us from believing the love and truth.
In this workshop, we will use pages of pre-written “truths” pasted to different kinds of cards to create “Truth Cards”. Each participant will leave the class having made several truth cards for herself.
Sometimes it is just a few true and beautiful words that give us all of the hope that we need to keep going…and just a FEW true words really can make all of the difference in the world…
Friday evening through Saturday evening retreat with one night lodging included.
