DOK Retreat @ House of Blessings

The annual Daughters of the King Retreat will be held on Friday, September 14 through Sunday September 16 at the House of Blessings located in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. This year, Rev. Dr. Joanna J. Seibert MD will present “A Daily Spiritual Rx. As a physician, deacon, and spiritual director, Joanna will share spiritual direct and insight from her newest book “A Daily Spiritual Rx, Spiritual Direction Insights for 365 days.”

The Rev. Dr. Joanna Seibert is an  established author with over forty years of experience as a physician, minister, mother, retreat leader, and spiritual director, and will share messages from well-known spiritual authors and her insights from her own experience particularly as it relates to spiritual direction. A Daily Spiritual Rx retreat should trigger a connection to God for the participants from their own experience to sustain them in our busy lives. Joanna addresses in particular the most common subjects and questions brought up by people in spiritual direction as she shares books, readings, and experiences that have most connected her to God on her journey from both contemporary and classical writers.

If you are interested in attending, sign up sheets are available by the bulletin boards in church hallways. The cost for a single occupancy is $140, and a double occupancy is $120. Included are 5 meals, snacks, & linens. The deadline to sign up is August 15. We hope to see many in attendance this year.
