We met at Camp Eden in the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The wind was whipping and the snow was flying, but I was warmed by the friendships of 19 talented, God-loving writers and the huge fireplace in our meeting area.
The event was led by Paula Moldenhauer who took us deep into God’s word and purposes and challenges and encouragements. The topic of the retreat was Courage to Pursue Your Writing Dreams.
Kim Woodhouse is at the keyboard. She provided our worship music.
Of course, I was fortunate enough to get the private suite. :) I advocate always carrying a tablecloth in your car. You never know when you’ll need it. I use mine when I eat lunch on the concrete picnic table outside the office building where I go to my day job. It also comes in handy when you’re eating outside at a casual café or coffee shop. (Yes, I know I spoil myself—but my friends also enjoy the luxury of my tablecloth when they join me.)
These are the views from the meeting room:
I can never get over the thrill of driving on mountain roads. See that? No guard rail. You don't want to slip off this road! These trees are taller than they appear. The base of the trunks are several feet below the surface of the road.Some of the roads are even scarier. I put the car in "park" to take this photo. :)
