Until the Last Line is Good

Until the Last Line is Good is a journaling retreat for gathering together to pray, worship, lean in, offer presence, and write alongside each other. September 15 + 16, 2023. Register here.

As a registered participant, you'll enjoy three sessions of SACRED encouragement from Ann with guided journaling from Allison Byxbe. As a community, we'll share one lunch and one dinner together and of course, keep brewing coffee and passing snacks. Between sessions, we'll have time for intentional conversation, quiet introspection, and maybe even a sheep adventure! View the full schedule here.


Through this weekend, you'll meet with the Word Himself through His Word and through penning your own words on the page. You'll gain a deep appreciation for journaling as a spiritual discipline that strengthens your connection to God. You'll be equipped to continue working in your journal through the coming year. And, we pray, you'll leave this retreat linked arms with a whole new band of sisters. Register here.

Cost: $440, which includes all retreat sessions + events, one lunch, one dinner, plus a fun swag bag. Transportation to the event, lodging, and other meals are not included in this price.


Travel details: Fly into Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). The recommended hotel accommodations for the retreat (click here for a list of preferred hotels) are in Fergus, which is approximately a 45-minute drive to The Village Table (Ann's stone church and the site for all retreat sessions). We recommend securing a rental car for transportation between your hotel and the retreat.
