Hearts of Rest Women’s Retreat

February 5 – 7, 2021

Experience the power of God’s rest through creativity and creation.

No artistic experience necessary,
simply come and discover your hidden talents!

This weekend is for women who are ready to abandon the treadmill of comparison and to rid themselves of the weights the enemy tries to stack upon their heads in place of their crowns. Escape to The Farm for great culinary, fellowship and immersive creative experiences with some of the most talented artists and inspirational instructors in the Southeast.

2021 Featured Speaker – Jamie Heard – Faithfully Restored

Jamie Heard is a co-founder and Executive Director of Faithfully Restored, a non-profit based in Brentwood, TN. Through hope in Jesus, Faithfully Restored lifts up women who need care, encouragement and community. This mission is near and dear to Jamie’s heart as she has walked through loss and tragedy in her own life. Losing her dad to suicide in 2008 and her two-year-old son, William, in 2015. She was shown hope and love through the community that surrounded her being the hands and feet of Jesus. Jamie knows first hand the importance and freedom that comes with fully trusting God. While this does not take away the grief, it does allow for her to experience joy as she longs for heaven. Ultimately, she has faith that God has a purpose for her in the waiting and knows the same is true for you
