Find our most popular Christian women’s retreat crafts here. They’re all so much fun to do especially with a great group of friends!
Throughout the last several years, Loving Christ Ministries has organized and led several women’s retreats.
At each, I try to plan a variety of hands-on activities in order to provide an opportunity for the women to work together for a common goal in a small group setting and have something tangible to take away.
It’s my prayer that as the ladies glance at their takeaway throughout their busy days, a thought or memory of the retreat will remind them of the love God has for them.
Over time, I’ve learned which retreat crafts work best. The ladies definitely have their favorites! With every retreat, I try to include new activities but also offer some repeats of the most commonly requested ones.
There never seems to be enough time to do all we want to do. I guess that means we need to hold more retreats!
