at Camp Tadmor
As women, we work so hard at transforming our lives. How often have we found ourselves reading articles about the new diet or exercise routine, the new super food we should be eating, the new financial-help program, the new self-help book, the new guide to understanding your relationship with your husband or children? The root of all these struggles comes down to our heart battles. Let's face it, in this battlefield we call life, we are all searching for truth and freedom. Through the grace of God, we search no more because we are transformed through Jesus Christ. We no longer need to mourn and toil over this battlefield. Instead, we get to dance and rejoice with gladness. Through Christ, we can take our appointed positions and live out our lives with purpose and joy. Please join us for this year's Women's Camp where we get to dance on the battlefield, be transformed, and learn how to finish strong!

Who are you and what are you meant to be in the world? What's your true soul identity? Do you feel defined by your past or your current world of demands and responsibilities? Are you desperate to become? God knows your true identity and named you. He wants you to know who you are and become who He designed you to be. He longs to ignite your heart with His vision for you.
You will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow. (Isaiah 62:2b)

Sacred Mundane: Let your days transform your life
3:00-3:50 pm Friday, Evergreen Lodge
11:00-11:50 am, Saturday, Forum
The most powerful catalyst for true transformation has become almost completely ignored. Overlooked. Or shooed away like a pesky inconvenience on the supposed road to spiritual change. The secret to true transformation isn't something to go find but someone to let in. Life change takes place when you let Jesus into your ordinary, embracing the sacred mundane, learning to let your days transform your life. Like Naaman, we will find healing when we choose to dip down deep into the dailiness of life we often despise. Kari Patterson's Sacred Mundane workshop will equip you, through a practical 6-step process, to dip down deep into your days and let the ordinary transform you into glory.
Kari Patterson juggles the hats of church-planting wife, home school mom, conference speaker, Bible study teacher, writer, blogger, friend, and daughter—usually dropping them all on her crumb-covered floor. (It's ok, really.)
Kari holds a master's degree in Pastoral Studies with an emphasis in Women's Ministry from Multnomah Biblical Seminary, and has a passion to see women transformed by encountering God in the ordinary details of life. On her blog, Sacred Mundane, she writes the raw and the real—sometimes triumphant, always transparent—the daily venture of living the sacred in the midst of the mundane. (www.karipatterson.com)
We envision an event to bring groups of women from our community of churches together for a time of Refreshment away from normal routines and responsibilities where women are Encouraged to look beyond themselves to build community and redemptive relationships. Women will be Stimulated and challenged to see God's perspective in their lives and have their hearts Transformed and redirected towards God.
