Enjoy a weekend of laughter, sharing, worship and fellowship at a Journey to Joy Women’s Retreat at Lake Junaluska.

After two challenging years, when we have been unable to meet and have felt isolated, these retreats led by Leigh Young offer an opportunity to come together for spiritual renewal.

Come on your own and make new friends, or come with members of your small group, women’s group, or friends and family – and friends and family in the faith – to grow closer together.

Journey to Joy Women’s Retreats are offered in partnership with Leigh Young. The retreats take place at Lake Junaluska in the mountains of Western North Carolina, just a short drive from Asheville. Our peaceful lakeside village’s stunning lake and mountain views, comfortable accommodations, and convenient amenities provide a welcoming and soothing setting for renewing old friendships, making new friends and deliberately seeking the godly life that makes our joy complete.

INVITATION & WELCOME

All women seeking joy are invited and welcome to come to Lake Junaluska for a Journey to Joy Women’s Retreat led by Leigh Young.  Leigh will guide retreat participants to remember that God intends for us to lead lives filled with Joy. Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

But these words are not just some cheery greeting card platitudes. God knows! • He knows our pain. • He knows our relationship challenges. • He knows our financial setbacks. He knows the deep ache in our hearts. Jesus assures that “In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). So let’s go! Let’s take a Journey to Joy.

MEET LEIGH YOUNG

The retreat facilitator is Leigh Young, an author, speaker and entrepreneur with a passion for helping women find joy through the Word of God and the God of the Word. Her latest book, Journey to Joy: A Seven-Week Path to the Joyous Life God Intended, takes the reader on a voyage to the “abundant life,” which Jesus promises. Leigh leads local women’s groups in a pre-journey retreat, Lingering at the Trailhead, and multi-week small group studies. For a free sample of the book, email Leigh@youngandassociates.com.
