This year’s theme will be “Crafting Your Best Life”!


Come join us for our SECOND annual Cultivate Retreat! We are returning to the Mountain Laurel Retreat House to enjoy another opportunity to gather with the same AMAZING Hill Country view as last year. We are planning a weekend filled with food, fun and fellowship + a few surprises. This year’s theme will be “Crafting Your Best Life”.


"Crafting Your Best Life” - four days of creativity, faith, and sisterhood. This retreat is designed to offer you a transformative experience where you can tap into your personal creative style, deepen your relationship with God, and forge lifelong connections with fellow sisters in Christ.


During this year’s retreat, we will be crafting, digging into God’s Word, and building a community rooted in love and faith with a thread of gratitude woven in. Each day will be filled with a variety of workshops + time to rest. These activities will not only spark your creativity but also serve as a meaningful way to connect with God and the other Cultivators. Furthermore, through helpful Bible study sessions, heartfelt worship, and time in prayer, we will dig into Scripture, seeking wisdom and inspiration to shape our lives in alignment with God's purpose. Get ready to cultivate creativity, spiritual growth, gratitude and sisterly bonding as we join hands to craft our best lives together.

To register, we are offering two options:


If you would like to sign up using our payment plan, we are requiring a deposit of $110. Then you will have 5 remaining monthly payments that will process on the same day of the upcoming months as the day you registered. So if you register on the 8th of the month, all your future payments will process on the 8th. 

All payments must be completed at least 1 month prior to the event (March 10, 2024).


You can also pay in full if that works better for you. 


Registration & Payment Disclaimer: These events are hosted by The Gratitude Squad (Larissa, Angela, and Jana), on a budget just like you. We have a very strict "No Refund" policy. Once spots are reserved, plans are made for meals, rooms, and other retreat supplies, etc. We will, however, allow you to transfer your registration to someone else. If you have paid for your spot and need to transfer, the new participant (Cultivate Community member only) can pay you and we will put their name on your registration. Lots of work for us but easy for you! Please understand, we cannot offer refunds. By registering you are acknowledging agreement with this policy.

Special note: When this event sells out we will start a waiting list. Please make sure to set aside the date and create a budget so you can take someone’s spot, without much notice, if they cannot attend as originally planned. 

Thanks for considering spending time with us at our first Cultivate retreat. We look forward to seeing you and getting to know you better! Touch base if you have any questions.

let’s continue running the race God has set before us, together!!
