Women’s Retreat

JOURNEY: Living Well with God & Others

Life has its epic adventures, but the dailiness of it doesn’t consist of grand moments but the everyday rhythms of the intentional choices we make. Paying attention to our emotional and spiritual health. Caring for others and being cared for in return. Loving God and receiving his unconditional love and grace.  Maggie Wallem Rowe, author of the new book This Life We Share,  has deep roots in ministry in New England and a deep love for its women. Join us for a spiritual road trip as we find peace, discover our identities, connect with our traveling companions, and worship the God whose presence is infused in every moment of our journey.

Speakers

Maggie Rowe

A farmer’s daughter born and raised in Illinois, Maggie spent 25 years in ministry in New England with her pastor-husband Mike, where she taught at Daniel Webster University and directed women’s ministries throughout the six New England states. While living in the Chicago area, Maggie served as a public relations professional for Tyndale House as well as a guest communications instructor at Wheaton College. Maggie and Mike now happily reside in western North Carolina, where Maggie writes from Peace Ridge, their home in the Smokies.
More
Maggie has spoken at hundreds of outreach events, retreats and conferences throughout the U.S. As a dramatist she performs original historical reenactments of the lives of great women of the Christian faith including Mary of Nazareth, Sarah Pierpont Edwards, and Amy Carmichael. Maggie has contributed to over ten books and is currently completing her first book as a solo author, due from NavPress in the spring of 2020.

In 2014 Maggie earned her M.A. in Biblical Studies from Wheaton Graduate School. Her greatest blessings are Mike, her husband of over 40 years, their three adult children and spouses and five grandchildren. She loves hiking, mountain dancing, books and anything chocolate but mostly she loves people.
