Minnesota Women's Retreat 2018 My Story Isn't Over Yet! Psalm 107:2- Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story. We all have a story to tell: how God has loved us, changed us, grown us, carried us. Each story is a blessing to others, a way to bring encouragement and strength to others in similar circumstances. Every person matters, each story is a powerful testimony of God's power in us and a way to bless others. Join us as we learn together how much we are loved, how God is writing our own stories, and how we can impact the world around us. Our speaker this year is a pastor, motivational speaker and vocal artist: Pastor Lola Moore Johnston. Our young adult/youth breakaway speaker is Erica Jones, Assistant Director of Women's Ministries for the NAD.  Her primary ministry and passion is mentoring teen girls and developing resources that address the real issues they face. Please join us! Registration information can be found at our website, mnsda.com on the Women's Ministries page. Contact Kristin Breiner for more information,mnwmsda@gmail.com or 952.201.7417.
