Notice the blue and gold plate as the letter “o” in our Restore logo above. In the ancient Japanese practice called kintsugi (“golden joinery”), when a piece of pottery or dishware breaks, the broken pieces are not thrown out, but glued back together and the cracks are painted in with gold, making the restored item even more beautiful than the original.

This practice provides a perfect metaphor for the restoration process God guides us through. He waits to gather up each broken piece, each shattered shard – our sins, our shame, our wounds – restoring us as each crack is filled in with the gold of His radiant love and resurrected glory.

What Others Are Saying About the Restore Retreat

I encountered my faith in a new way and light started to shine on wounds from my past.

I experienced tremendous healing at the retreat.  You have a gift to reach people in their woundedness. Thank you and the team for being so gentle, welcoming and gracious.

The retreat was such a powerful awakening for me. I did not realize the healing it could bring.

I’m basking in God’s goodness and love returning from such a unique time of heavenly fellowship.

You and every member of your team showed me such love and dignity.

This was, by far, the most powerful retreat! To witness the healing and transformation was so moving.

This is such a graced ministry of healing and hope and restoration to our innate, God-given dignity!

At the retreat, God the Father gathered up the broken pieces of my heart that I had been trying to hold together myself all these years. He went directly to the source of my shame and allowed me to feel safe enough to finally bring things that lay hidden in my mind and heart for years – that weighed me down my whole life – into the light for healing.

You use your gifts so sacrificially and humbly, yet truly with authority, for the upbuilding of the Kingdom of God.

It was amazing to feel loved by these women, to be united through suffering, and to experience moments where I thought to myself, “This must be what heaven is like.”

The way our bodies, minds, and spirits are all taken into account and led into healing is very special at this retreat. The physical, psychological, and spiritual all come together, providing a profound experience.

I parted with something on the grounds of that retreat that I’m not sure I could have ever done in any other setting (I’ve tried for years). It was so safe.

Each talk stirred up my heart in places I would have avoided on my own and not addressed, but you gently took me to those places.

I have a beautiful image now imprinted in my heart of God the Father and His Love for me. At the retreat, I was freed from something that has burdened me since I was a little girl.

What have the wounds and traumas you’ve suffered in your formative years taught you about who you are as son or daughter?

How have the self-protective strategies learned (and needed) by your younger self, become obstacles to your authentic living, loving and relating?

God desires to bring us restoration and healing so we will live from the truth that we are His beloved sons and daughters. He desires the restoration of womanhood and manhood to their full glory, empowering us to embrace our unique gifts and complementarity.

Through unique, facilitated healing encounters, we listen for the Holy Spirit’s promptings as He reveals the memories, the moments, the circumstances that caused dis-integration within us.  With Him, we will untwist distortions, renounce lies, and move towards inner resolution and reintegration. Most importantly, we will open to Jesus’ healing love, which is the true balm for our hearts and souls.

Come…and be restored!
