Beloved You Are Mine: A Retreat for Women

“Deeper into the Heart of God: Spiritual Practices for the Beloved”
The Beloved Women Retreat is November 10-12, 2017 in Norton Shores, Michigan at the beautiful Maranatha Bible and Missionary Conference on Lake Michigan.

Speaker: Sharon Garlough Brown, author of the Sensible Shoes Series and Spiritual Director

Jesus says, “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Now abide in my love.” (John 15:9) What does it mean to know ourselves as God’s beloved? How do we practice abiding in love? Sharon weaves her own story of growing in confidence in God’s love as she teaches spiritual disciplines that help us receive, remain in, and respond to the uncontainable love of God in Christ.



Retreat Speaker

Sharon Garlough Brown (MDiv, Princeton Theological Seminary) is author of the Sensible Shoes series, a spiritual director, and co-founder of Abiding Way Ministries, which provides spiritual formation retreats and resources. Since graduating from seminary, Sharon and her husband, Jack, have served on the pastoral staff of churches in Scotland, Oklahoma, England, and Michigan. They currently live in West Michigan and have one son, David.
