What is your plan for Lent?

UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed. Our randomly selected winner of the free Restore registration is MJ from comment #24. thanks for your participation!

    Are you feeling burned out, boxed in, and beat up? Are you craving refreshment?

    Ash Wednesday is two weeks away. If you do not yet have a plan for Lent this year, let me introduce you to my dear friend, Elizabeth Foss. Elizabeth has put together Restore, an online Lenten retreat for women just like you.

    One of the first essays by Elizabeth Foss I ever read was one about burn-out. I read it years ago at my sister’s insistence and it fed my soul. Elizabeth has a gift for reaching, uplifting, and encouraging women from their lowest places. If you are struggling this winter season, or even if you are just looking for a structured way to feed your soul and connect with other women this Lent, I encourage you to check out Restore and see what this unique program has to offer.

    Elizabeth has generously offered a free workshop to readers at Momnipotent. Simply leave a comment here on this post to be entered in a random drawing for a free workshop registration.
