2019 Retreat Agenda

Women’s Retreat

Saturday, November 23 • 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

This event will take women on an indoor “hiking adventure” — complete with a “map” for navigating the twists and turns of life, overcoming the painful bumps of adversity, and summiting major challenges through greater resilience.

Our hike leaders are speakers who will share their personal campfire stories of adversity and the tools that helped them gain strength when life’s path left them weary and without a compass.

Every woman who attends the Inspired Woman Retreat will leave knowing what she needs in her “backpack” the next time she takes an unexpected adventure through adversity.

Our goal is to help you be ready and resilient.

Amberley Snyder has captured hearts as “America’s Rodeo Star,” sharing her amazing and inspirational story in her book and movie, “Walk. Ride. Rodeo.” She comes to Bismarck as our keynote speaker to share how she fought her way back from tragedy. The barrel racer’s future was destined for success, but a truck accident changed her life at age 18, leaving her paralyzed. You will be moved as you hear Amberley share her setbacks and victories, and why she says her challenges refine her; they don’t define her.
