Bringing issues of wellness, balance and spirituality to women resonates deeply within local resident and founder of Heart2Heart Connections, LLC, Lynne B. Ford. Her second annual women’s retreat, “Healing Hurting Hearts Through Christ II” is designed to do just that, by bringing women together, all denominations welcome.
This year’s retreat will be held Feb. 7 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and Feb. 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church in Pawleys Island. Speakers include Kristin Alford, director of All Saints Church Preschool; Tracey D. Watkins, Esq., a consultant and attorney who grew up in Georgetown and now lives in Fredericksburg, Va.; Evelyn Bell, a missionary who resides in Chicago, Ill.; and nationally renowned motivational speaker, missionary, and author Donna R. Tyson of Surfside Beach, who wrote The Red Bow.
A portion of the proceeds raised from this year’s retreat will be directed towards Mended Hearts, Inc., a support group for those who have had or will be undergoing heart surgery (www.mendedhearts117.org). The group meets in Pawleys Island at the Recreation Center.
Those interested in registering for the retreat can email Ford at firstname.lastname@example.org. Partners in Service Sponsors include: Diane Hinkle with Arbonne International; Dr. Amanda Droseiko with Inlet Pediatrics; Dr. Michael Bohan with Orthopaedic Specialists; Dr. Tracy Nelson with Magnolia OB/Gyn, and Leslie D. Bessellieu, founder of Transformations Consulting Leadership & Development. Chick Fil-A is the food sponsor.
“It gives me great joy to encourage and inspire women,” said Ford, who is a member of The House of God Church in Pawleys Island. “This retreat is just a vehicle that God is using to allow women to fellowship and learn together, and ultimately grow closer to Him.”
Through Heart 2 Heart Connections, LLC, Ford seeks to draw women to God through Christian conferences, retreats, speaking engagements, workshops, writings, and more.
