Women’s Retreat Part 2

The retreat this year was amazing and exhausting…..

One of the best parts of the whole weekend was the obstacle course. 

We did the obstacle course right after my lesson on submission.  Now, most obstacle courses require some sort of physical prowess.  Not our course.  Ours required different skills.  First, one partner was blindfolded.  Then the other partner had to lead the blindfolded one through the obstacle course using only voice commands.


Then, at the end the partners would switch and go back through the obstacle course backwards.  The object of the course was to show the ladies that neither leading nor following (submission) are easy.  They both require a great deal of trust and patience to accomplish.

After a bit, our Drill Sargeant decided to throw a curve into the course and imitate Satan’s kill-steal-and destroy tactics.  The rest of the ladies soon caught on and delivered “prayer covering” to take Satan out.

We had a blast.

We played several games over the course of the weekend.  One of them was the Mummy Game.  See if you can guess who won.

We did our traditional communion around the campfire and made s’mores and sang praise songs.


Can’t wait for next year.
