When I think back through my life, I can pinpoint each new beginning. Obviously, first days of school, learning to ride a bike, getting a driver’s license, etc. all count as new beginnings.
Beyond those mostly typical (but no less exciting) beginnings, there were also spiritual new beginnings such as with the birth of each of my children, the death of my best friend, and the start of the Loving Christ website.

I count the start of this website as a spiritual new beginning because for so many years I lived the life I was supposed to. I chose a career my family expected me to, and I let fear keep me from following a path I dreamed about.
New beginnings, especially those that deeply effect our spirit can be so emotional. That’s why it was so important to me to choose the perfect music for the New Beginnings retreat theme.
Music touches our emotions as well. I know that as each of you considers your own new beginning, the emotion overwhelms you. How perfect to have compatible music to go along with those emotions.
For the New Beginnings retreat theme, I chose love songs that are upbeat and exciting and also songs that cause your heart to swell as you take in the magnitude of what it means to love Jesus and to be loved by Him.
These are my 10 favorite worship songs for New Beginnings:
Ways to share these worship songs about New Beginnings at your retreat:
-Have a music leader who plays an instrument and sings, leading the ladies throughout.
-Play CDs or an MP3 Playlist and let the ladies sing along
-If you have a laptop and projector, display the lyrics (Be careful about copyright. Most churches have access to worship songs legally so go through proper channels.) on a screen or the wall and sing along
-Provide printed lyrics and sing a capella
Whether you use these songs or others, please take special care when choosing your music. Worship songs that bring hope will fit perfectly with the New Beginnings themed retreat.
Without music, our retreats would not be the same, would they? I’m so thankful for the gift of music!
