On Saturday, women from across the region are invited to the "There is More" Women's Retreat in Eddyville, hosted by Lamasco Baptist Church.
The event, which begins at noon at the Lyon Convention Center, will feature special guest speaker Cyndi Thomson, the Christian and country singer best known for her number one hit "What I Really Meant to Say," as well as other singles like "I Always Liked that the Best" and "I'm Gone."
This retreat was the brainchild of Herald Ledger sales representative Becky Murphy, who is originally from Princeton.
"Our churches are filed with women who love Jesus but are overwhelmed by various burdens and strongholds that keep us from living the life Jesus promises," Murphy shared about why she decided to create the event. "Our hope is to inspire and encourage through real life stories from women who have overcome hardships, or many different kinds of pain, and really understand that even through our most painful or vulnerable experiences that we are never alone."
In addition to Thomson, the retreat will also feature special music from Suzanne Dorroh Boaz of Princeton and Nicole McVickers of Eddyville, as well as time of fellowship, worship, and testimony.
Food will be provided at this free event, and a love offering will be taken during the conference to benefit Nonnie's Place, a women and children's shelter in Lyon County.
Those who wish to attend must RSVP to Becky Murphy at (270) 625-2650.
