“Breathe: Making Space in Your Full Life for God”

with Lucinda Secrest McDowell.


Lucinda Secrest McDowell

A Little about Me:  I’m a word girl and storyteller who has written 11 books including Live These Words, Amazed by Grace, Spa for the Soul, Role of a Lifetime, God’s Purpose for You, Better Together, A Southern-Style Christmas, 30 Ways to Embrace Life, Fit & Healthy Summer and Quilts from Heaven. I co-direct the “New England Christian Writers Retreat” to encourage writers and speakers. And I absolutely adore my whole family scattered across the country doing amazing things while I write from “Sunnyside” cottage here in New England (alongside my husband of 31 years). In my new life story I depend on mercy and grace in order to offer Encouraging Words to other hungry souls. So, let’s discover together how God and His Word offer just what we need to live our seemingly impossible lives!


Why should you make space in your full life for this retreat?
Are you often so busy you can hardly find time to breathe, much less handle all those people and challenges that fill your days? Jesus beckoned us “Come to Me. Get away with Me and you’ll recover your life.” (Matthew 11:28msg) If getting away to draw closer to the One who loves you sounds like a good idea, then join us where guest speaker and author Lucinda Secrest McDowell will encourage us on the theme of “BREATHE – Making Space for God in Your Full Life”. Throughout our journey together, we will visit “Tight Spaces”, “Quiet Spaces”, “Dark Spaces” and “Living Spaces”.

Please join us for Hope Chapel’s First Women’s Retreat! The retreat will be held at the Grotonwood Conference Center, 167 Prescott St., Groton, MA – Friday, April 29th and Saturday, April 30th. Check in is Friday at 5:00PM.
