LifeHouse alumni, current residents, and Lana Sanders enjoy a feast together at the retreat

After graciously accepting an invitation from LifeHouse of Houston, Lana Sanders, author and founder of Beauty for Ashes Ministries International, led a two-day retreat at the campus called “Transformed by Grace”. It was a time for LifeHouse alumni, recent residents, and current residents to re-charge and re-focus on their relationship with God, and for some, to come to know Him for the first time. Childcare was provided for alumni to be able to fully enjoy the retreat.

Lana taught profoundly on our identity in Christ, forgiveness, restoration and healing. She also shared with the girls her own story regarding abortion, abuse, and how Jesus continues to heal her through teaching and mentoring women from similar backgrounds. By the end of the retreat, not a dry eye could be found in the room as the heart of every LifeHouse girl, staff, and volunteer was immensely moved!

Making the weekend even more special were volunteers from Apostolic Temple Church who worked hard to ensure everyone was comfortable and well-fed with snacks and food throughout the weekend. LifeHouse looks forward to hosting a 2016 retreat and continuing to utilize this event as a way to keep in touch with LifeHouse alumni!
