Thank you, Janice Fowler, for taking these pictures!

June 4, 5 and 6, 2010 found 40 women taking a 3 day retreat at the Ayres Hotel in Costa Mesa/Newport Beach with guest speaker, Stephanie Edwards. Retreat opened with a great Dessert Reception on Friday Evening.

A great Saturday breakfast was followed by several sessions with Stephanie throughout the day, along with ice breakers, and door prizes galore. Catered luncheon and dinner complemented the Saturday events. Stephanie is a gracious and grace-filled speaker sharing her loving nature and warm attention to all. Many ladies commented on how they were inspired and motivated by Stephanie's sharing her self, her insecurities, her setbacks, and, above all, her faith.

Sunday concluded with another great breakfast in the hotel restaurant, more door prizes, meaningful worship, and personal sharing.

It was a terrific weekend, and the hotel and staff were amazing. Let's plan another one.
