Christian Women Retreats
Don’t let your important story live in your head. Take a retreat together.
Busyness is a common obstacle for women who struggle to make time for themselves. A day retreat carves out time for those in your community to reflect, write, and be refreshed!
Gather for a day with other Christian women to build connection and put thoughts on paper. Research shows writing down experiences brings clarity and facilitates healing. Your stories shine light in the darkness as you declare God’s faithfulness.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have any guidance if I want to host a one-day ladies' retreat at my home or church?
We provide coaching to help you prepare for your retreat. If you’d like members of the Sacred Story team to facilitate in person, we are available to do so. We also can provide input on how to use our video content.
What is included in your retreat materials?
A beautiful, guided journal with a pen, sticky notes for the writing process, Scripture cards, and a thank-you note for a special person in a woman’s story are all intentionally included.
What are some activities women do at a Sacred Story retreat?
Activities include pairing off for guided conversation on stories, small-group discussion, a creative outlet called storyboarding, personal reflection and writing time, and one-on-one 15-minute coaching and prayer times to support women through the writing process. Activities are designed to help women get to know others as well as begin to shape personal stories.
Any tips on getting ladies from my church interested in a Christian women’s retreat?
We have created a 3-minute video on this page to provide an overview of the retreat. You may also share a story from our Story Library and share your enthusiasm for the bonding experience of a story retreat.
Do you charge per retreat event or per attendee?
We charge per attendee. Please visit the Retreat Options Page for more information.
What is an ideal number of women to attend a Sacred Story retreat?
We have helped women host retreats with groups as small as 8 and as large as 60. Our retreat framework is scalable to your needs.
What are some writing activities you explain at the day retreat?
We define the term life chapter and give women input on how to select their chapters. We also provide an overview of the writing process and time for women to write rough drafts of their stories. When the Sacred Story team is present at the retreat, we come alongside each participant through coaching during the retreat and follow-up editing later. If desired, a woman has the option to submit her finished story to our online library of inspiring stories.
Do you provide follow-up ideas for women after a Sacred Story retreat?
We offer a 10-week study called Living Your Story: 10 Biblical Principles that Matter – a great follow-up to the retreat experience. We also provide editing to help a woman polish and finalize her story.
