Refresh E-Brochure

For present or future home educating mothers

Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 31 October 2009
Hope Community Church, Ranzau Road, Hope

Come and be refreshed

As mothers we are always so busy serving, loving, teaching, cherishing
and supporting that we need time to stop, reflect and be refreshed.
This day conference will provide you with an opportunity to do just this.
“Our days look like the scrap floor of a studio, frayed bits of work,
remnants snipped off family, a heap of countless fabrics – ministry,
creativity, worship, volunteerism. We’re ripped into pieces , and putting our
lives together again is like stitching a crazy quilt – driving us a bit crazy.”
Ann Voskamp.
Yet, God is weaving our lives from above into one seamless fabric.
Come and be encouraged by sitting at His feet and learning His ways…
”that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Acts 3 :19
