Refresh Retreat 2013: Swag Bag Giveaway!!

I got the wonderful opportunity to spend and entire weekend in the Colorado mountains with a group of the most amazing women. If you are you on instagram, facebook, or twitter, you might have heard of Refresh Retreat 2013. It is a weekend in a cabin with God, women of God, and delicious food.

I was so nervous and anxious for this weekend. I have never been to a womens retreat.  What were these women going to be like? Would they judge me for my lack of biblical knowledge? Would they just be reading the bible and expecting me to memorize passages? Would they be wearing nice clothes with perfect hair and makeup? Not a chance!  (well, we did have some girls with perfect hair) This group of ladies was so accepting, encouraging, and relaxed. *phew!

I learned so much about my faith, about being a woman of faith, and about myself, as a person.
If you read this blog, you know I am fairly new in my relationship with the Lord. Between small group, large group, my bible study, and the prayer experience, any doubts, reservations, or questions I may have had before this weekend are completely gone.

Between solid conversations, prayer, and hours of p.j. lounging we also had a few amazing cooks in the kitchen. And ya'll know i LOVE food!!

Oh, did I mention we stayed in a wonderfully cozy cabin? (that belonged to one the girls family?)

To top off the most amazing weekend of the year, we had SWAG BAGS! 
We had an AMAZING woman take time to put these amazing bags together. 
And guess what??? 
YOU get a chance to win one!!! 
What is in this bag that makes it so fabulous you ask? Just the most amazing things ever!
