In the state of Arkansas it is estimated that 56% of children have at least one occurrence of some form of trauma: physical abuse, sexual abuse, divorce, alcoholism, drug abuse or intimidation among other events.
We are most often hurt and wounded in the midst of personal relationships. We believe that because we are created in God’s image, healing comes in the midst of SAFE relationships. This retreat will help us discover together how to be free to live as God uniquely created each of us!
