Weekend Retreat Topics:

Courageous Faith

A 3-5 session series framed around Proverbs 3:5-6. How do I trust the Lord with all my heart? How do I refuse to be controlled by what I see and feel and instead choose to be led by God’s Spirit and transformed by His Truth? As we study God’s Word, we’ll be inspired by courageous examples and awed by the power and love of our faithful God. Practical applications will help us step over fear and take a bold, courageous stand on God’s promises. "Our problems may be big, but our God is BIGGER!


Unshakable H.O.P.E.

A 3-5 session series that untangles Biblical stories of those who struggled to trust God through their long waits, unmet expectations, and painful disappointments. In the messiness of their confusions and heartaches, we’ll find the beauty of God’s unshakable hope and love woven intricately in the fabric of their stories. We’ll become skilled hope-hunters as we discover practical ways to engage with the Lord and His Word in our stories.

Wildly Loved

Let’s find our worth in the heart of God who calls us His own. A 1-3 session series that takes a deep dive into God’s heart through the stories of women in the Bible. We’ll strengthen our identity in Christ through Biblical descriptions of God’s intimate, lavish love. As we embrace the life-changing truth that we are wildly loved and celebrated children of God, the lies and insecurities of “not-enoughness” will be exposed and broken from our souls.

Sara McKinsey

Women's Ministry Leader and Writer

"As a leader in Women's Ministry I am always searching for Bible Studies and speakers that encourage women on the often hard road of living our faith in the midst of challenging circumstances. Kelly Hall brings authenticity and inspiration, coupled with humor and pragmatism, both in her writing and as a gifted presenter. After completing Courageous Faith I couldn't wait to share it with my sisters in Christ; I knew it would bless and encourage them as it did me. Kelly Hall understands what 'walking by faith, not by sight' really means and she brings hope and humor as she communicates the Truths of God."

Sarah Findley

Author, Composer, Worship team member

"Kelly Hall is refreshingly down-to-earth, real, authentic, and genuine. Her deep love and compassion for women shines, not only in her Courageous Faith Bible study, but also in her speaking. I walk away inspired and motivated to walk courageously forward in my own life circumstances. God's anointing is on her and it's obvious by the way her writing and speaking penetrate my heart, urging me to be the woman God's created me to be."

Mary Moglia

Pastor's Wife and Teacher in Newburgh, New York: Heart's Desire Women's Retreat, 2011.

"Kelly is authentic.the real deal! She has walked the walk of courageous faith which she shares so beautifully. She highlights her life circumstances which brought her over and over to the feet of Jesus and God's Word. Her strength, humility, and fun personality all speak to what the Lord can do in and through one wholly committed to Him. Each lady at our retreat was touched deeply by her testimony of God's love and faithfulness and came away with renewed strength and courage."

Trish Schlichte

Pastor's wife and Bible study teacher, Rio Rancho, New Mexico

"In all my years of ministry, I've never seen the Lord bring about so much life change through one Bible study in the same group of women. God continues to bring to mind thoughts and scriptures from Courageous Faith. This study is without a doubt an anointed work of the Lord. We can't wait for Kelly to speak at our next women's retreat."

Jan Ritter

PWOC Director and Bible study teacher, Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota

"Courageous Faith is A Must for Women!!! Courageous Faith is in my "Top 3" all time favorite Bible studies! I have been in women's ministry and continuously led or have been led in women's Bible studies for more than 20 years. This is a study ALL women need! God has led Kelly to devise some practical strategies that coincide with significant scriptures that help us apply our faith in the everyday or most difficult challenges in life. This study is POWERFUL! It is a resource to help you learn to trust God and use your faith to overcome adversity."

Sharon Spenst

Bible study teacher

"Courageous Faith is a solid, Biblically-based study calling each of us to let go of worries, doubt and fear and trust that our God will take care of us. Through this study, God has taught me to refuse to allow my circumstances and emotions to control my responses to daily irritations and unexpected events. I’m inspired to allow the truth of my unchanging, faithful God determine my responses. Kelly's transparency and her real-life stories have helped me apply these principles to my life. I have also seen God use the principles from this study to bring about spiritual growth in women’s lives, including my 89 year old neighbor, and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to grow more courageous in their faith."

Bobbi Hamilton

a discerning reader in Pueblo, CO

"Courageous Faith is the best Bible study I've ever done. God speaks to me each time I open the book and has used it to draw me closer to Himself. He has also brought healing to some wounded places in my heart. I have done Bible studies by some of the top Christian authors of our day, and although they are all wonderful Bible studies, none of them has touched me they way Courageous Faith has. This is truly an anointed work of the Lord."
