Story & Soul


SCROLL DOWN

Story & Soul


"Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul." Psalm 66:16

Story & Soul Weekend is a weekend retreat for and by women, designed to prioritize Scripture, Stillness, and Sisterhood. Desiring to provide participants with an opportunity to commune with their Creator and His Church, we pray that each women will leave with her gaze firmly set on things above and lips that cannot help but proclaim, "Look what God has done!"

We primarily partner with churches in the Memphis area, lending vision and coming alongside ministries to provide women with a meaningful, quality retreat without overextending women's ministry leaders. However, we also make sure to set aside some spots for individuals who love what we're doing! If that's you, email us at storyandsoulweekend@gmail.com. 

Interested in your women's ministry participating in the 2018 retreat? Email us at storyandsoulweekend@gmail.com.
