What's Your Heart's Desire? Women Laugh, Learn and Listen at Annual Retreat

November 01, 2006 | Kirstin Rich

Women in Washington examined the question "What's Your Heart's Desire?" during the annual women's and teens' fall retreat in Ocean Shores, Wash.

Featured speaker Jan Yakush combined humor, storytelling and Bible study in a way that inspired those attending to “taste the Word of God again for the very first time!” (Her presentations are available in a podcast format at www.washingtonconference.org.)

"We felt God smiling on us all weekend," said Wilma Bing, women's ministry director. "Yakush really spoke to the hearts of women. Many women identified with her messages, and mentioned how grateful they were for this retreat.”
