The Princess Perspective Experience
I’ve got some exciting news that pertains to the female portion of the Sparky Nation. Guys, you are welcome to read because you may have someone with whom you’d like to share this information. I promise I’m not going to talk about cooking, childbirth, feminine hygiene products, or cats.
‘Round about the beginning of the new year, I agreed to join the lead team of a parachurch women’s ministry called The Princess Perspective. The Princess Perspective hosts a women’s retreat every autumn, and I was invited in 2014 and decided to go.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived at the retreat. After all, it sounds rather frilly and frou-frou, doesn’t it? And I’m…well, not.
What I discovered is that the emphasis wasn’t about frilly and frou-frou, but about the perspective of a kingdom-minded royal daughter. It was about how that perspective changes how we think, which in turn changes how we behave. And that I can jive with. It’s powerful stuff, and one of my favorite topics.
So now The Princess Perspective Leadership team has a member who is decidedly not frilly or frou-frou. Although I do like C-A-T-S, but I’ve promised not to talk about that. For now.
The 2015 retreat will be held Oct.8-10 in Samson, Alabama, which is just over the Florida-Alabama line. Registration opened today and will be limited to 50 slots, which we expect to fill up quickly. Local women will be able to drive there; those flying in to Fort Walton Beach airport (VPS) can “purchase” a free ticket for a shuttle ride from the airport to the retreat venue.
I will be one of the speakers for the retreat. It’s a fun team and I look forward to us all working together to provide a setting where women can be taught, encouraged, and can hear from God in deeply personal and intimate ways.
Consider this your official invitation to the 2015 Princess Perspective Experience. I can promise you that it’s worth the investment of your time, energy, and money.
Ok, the nuts and bolts…
The early bird price is $99. The price goes up to $119 on August 1st, but I’ll be surprised if there are any slots left by then. The price covers two nights of lodging and all meals during the retreat. You’ll need to bring your own bedding, but if you’re flying in and you need help with that part, just let us know. There will be a resource table with some great stuff to purchase to take home to keep yourself encouraged and focused, but that’s optional.
There are three ways to register:
-Through The Princess Perspective website.
-Through The Princess Perspective Facebook group. (“Like” us while you’re there!)
-Directly through Eventbrite (Search for The Princess Perspective Experience)
I’m happy to answer any questions you may have, so feel free to ask. I really hope to see some of you there!
