Wild // Blessed is She Retreat in Saint Paul, MN

His love is wild for me.

“The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” // John 3:8

The Blessed is She Wild Retreat is all about unleashing God’s Spirit in the lives of women. Come and find freedom, learn to live in that freedom, and give it to other women.

This retreat is in Saint Paul, Minnesota with speakers Laura K Fanucci, Beth Davis, Patty Breen, and worship leaders Ike Ndolo and Danielle Noonan to help us dive into prayer to learn more about living wild.
