I just returned from a women's retreat in Lexington, Neb., sponsored through our church.
It was really good.
We studied from the book and videos "Secrets - Transforming Your Life and Marriage" by Kerry Clarensau. Gary Smalley also was part of the videos. We didn't get through all of them. I wish we had, but there just wasn't time.
So we had to just skim the surface.
The book talks about some of our greatest needs: security, identity, acceptance and purpose. We learned some basic differences between men and women. We talked about ways to improve intimacy in marriage.
I'd recommend checking out Kerry's Web site: www.SecretsBibleStudy.com.
She's a good speaker and I think this would be a good study for just about any church - especially those with young married couples (yet even older, longer-married women could benefit).
Besides a good study, we had a great time of prayer and I really believe that God moved to heal some hurts that women probably have carried for a long time.
God is so good.
He is faithful.
