Remember Slumber Parties?

Do you remember all of the slumber parties that we had as preteens and teenagers? It was all about wearing cool pajamas or big shirts, eating all the junk food that you could hold, talking and sharing lots of giggles. Well, you can have that same experience but only much better! I’m talking about the upcoming Women’s Retreat on April 24-25. Ladies of all ages will be coming to share a wonderful time together at the Bishop Quarterman Conference Center northeast of Amarillo. Registration begins Friday at 4:00 PM and we’ll begin eating around 6:00 PM. All of the food is homemade and delicious! Each lady may spend the night or go home after the evening session and join us again for breakfast.If you decide to spend the night, you will sleep under homemade quilts, clean sheets, and fluffy pillows.

Betsey Tonne will be facilitating this year’s topic, “Get Back to Basics-Simplify Your Faith”. She’ll be using several episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. A Christian comedienne, Martha Marie (aka Rita Morrow) will open and close this event. Just think, Bible lessons, singing, praying, laughing, eating terrific food, and meeting new friends—now that sounds like the ingredients to a wonderful experience!

Bishop Quarterman Conference Center is quiet and very peaceful—a wonderful change from our hurried lives. It is a place to relax and refuel your body, mind and soul. If you haven’t come before, try it out, and if you have been there before, I know we’ll see each other there. After the lights are turned out, giggles can probably still be heard!
