"Make Lemonade" Mother-Daughter Retreat

Hi Friends! We just returned from an adventurous week in Colorado. If you follow along on Instagram (@craftytexasgirl) you saw lots of our fun travel pictures. I am compiling everything into a post for the blog, which I hope to share with you right here next week.

Today I wanted to tell you about an exciting event that I am helping to plan at our church.


I think it was almost two years ago when my friend Jenny talked to me about a great Mother-Daughter Retreat she attended with her little girl. She loved bonding with her daughter and having time to devote to 'getting to know each other'. Jenny kept thinking about the event and hoping there would be another one like it in the future.

She really loved the idea of our church hosting a similar event. But when we talked about the idea, it was one of those 'yes, that's a good idea to do someday'. (You know those conversations. The ones where you say things like 'yes, let's get together soon' but you never make plans to do it and then it never happens.) Well the retreat idea was that kind of thing for awhile. It was an awesome idea, but it was something that was just talked about.

As the months rolled on, Jenny kept thinking about the idea and in her heart, she really felt called to plan a retreat that would bring women and their young daughters together. So with a nudge from God, she sent out an email to several women in our church. And you know what?-- this time something happened. A team of creative, enthusiastic, talented moms all wanted to get on board. That little idea that had just been talked about finally grew into something more. Plans were made and dates were set.

So it is with a full, happy heart that I am sharing with you today the "Make Lemonade" Mother Daughter Retreat! The mini-retreat is open to all mothers and their daughters ages 6-12! We have planned fabulous speakers, yummy food and lots of mother/daughter activities (like crafts!!). Cost is $25 per person and includes: dinner Friday night and breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Register online by clicking here. Scholarships available upon request too.

I have been helping with the crafty side of the event. There will be time for making lots of cute things, but even more, this event will be a chance for Moms to bond with their Daughters.  Speakers will share stories of 'sweet times' and also talk about what to do 'when life gives you lemons'. This summer retreat is a time for Moms and Daughters to have fun together!


If you are local, make plans to attend. Whether you go to church at Whites Chapel or somewhere else, or even if you don't have a church home-- you are invited to attend. This retreat is about Moms & Daughters- all are welcome! I am so excited to be a part of this event. For more information, visit White's Chapel website here.
