Looking for a place to reconnect with your faith, reignite your creativity, and form meaningful relationships with like-minded women? We have the perfect opportunity for you: the Chosen to Create Spiritual Retreat. This Bible-based event invites creative women (just like you!) from all walks of life to come together in a nurturing, inspiring environment.

We (the IOD sisters) will be there with some other amazing creators! For our part, you’ll get a hands-on workshop with some of our latest and greatest stamps. The theme of the conference is Transformation, and we’ll be diving deeper and exploring the pain that can often accompany true transformation and growth. We’ll share our experiences and strategies for navigating the path of transformation. 

This is a very intimate retreat. There is truly nothing else like this. We hope to see you there! ❤️

About The Experience

Set to take place from June 15th to 18th, 2023, in scenic Adamstown, Maryland, this 3-night retreat includes all lodging, meals, talks, and workshops. All you need to arrange is your airfare. Once you’re here, you can relax and immerse yourself in the spiritual and creative journey that awaits.

A Place to Belong

Chosen to Create is more than just a retreat; it’s a place of belonging. This is where you can hear and share God-filled stories, worship the Lord, create beautiful things, and interact with your favorite creatives while meeting new ones. You don’t need to have a business to attend. All that is required is a willing spirit and an open heart.

Spiritual and Creative Enrichment

This retreat is designed to encourage and refresh women in their walk with Christ and their creative endeavors. It’s about laughing together, creating together, and growing together through shared testimonies, fellowship, workshops, and worship. It’s about escaping the busyness of life and growing closer to God and to each other.
