Everybody's Got a Laughing Place 

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

Come and join me at my favorite spot! My “laughing place” sits on the top of a hill on a dirt road near the TN/NC line. The weather will be cool, we might even see snow flurries! Then again it could be warm but the evenings will certainly be cool. You will be staying in an old farmhouse. This is where I write my books. It’s my family’s private get away. We don’t rent this house out, it is not a showroom kind of home. Retreat space is limited to 8 people (THIS IS SHARING BEDS!). The best way to come is with a friend. But if you’d like to come and have a bed to yourself, you can pay an extra fee. Or you can come and make a new friend! The cost includes all lodging, food and gifts as well as the small group interaction with me and other retreat participants. Cost does not include the 2 meals we will eat out. You will arrive as distant “cousins in Christ” and leave as sister/friends! I believe that God handpicks the women who will spend this weekend together, if you are with us, God has something amazing in store for all of us.
