What an amazing opportunity to celebrate our 50th Women’s Retreat with a mother/daughter legacy team. Betty Gray and Love Lockman also sharefamily, faith, and legacy with the Lake Aurora ministry. Betty and Love are individually sought after featured speakers for women’s events and together they are a dynamic duo for Christ.
Betty Gray, director of Encourage Me Ministries, has traveled over three decades delivering Bible based messages that have changed many lives. Betty gets her points across with skillful use of humor and down-to-earth messages. She is an inspirational speaker and dramatist doing women of the faith characters using music, prayer and scripture to inspire.
Love Lockman grew up a silly, fun-loving, preacher’s kid, more tomboy than refined debutante. She battles the learning disability dyslexia, and wasn’t diagnosed until late into adulthood. This left her childhood and early adulthood riddled with insecurity, inferiority and shame. Having overcome the hardships of dyslexia, Love has morphed into a gifted, encouraging and highly requested Christian speaker and author. She is a crusader for restoring brokenness to beauty.
This is a camp, so dress is casual. Bring comfortable shoes and a jacket for possible chilly/rainy weather.
Other suggestions are notebook, camera, flashlight, insect repellant, lawn chair (workshops have limited seating) and rain gear. Some like to bring table games for late night laughs in the game room.
