This is Week 7 of an 11-week series of posts for our Awaken Women’s Retreat. Please click on Awaken 2016 or check the tab on our page for more information on our annual retreat in Ruidoso, NM.
This week, our featured breakout speaker is Cynthia Flores.
The blurb for her class is, “We all experience grief or loss, which can leave a hole in our heart. Join me as we take the necessary steps to walk out of pain, hopelessness and anger, and into complete freedom.”
We visited with Cynthia about her class and this is what she had to say.
AW: Why is it important to discuss your topic?
CF: We all experience grief at some point in our life. Whether we’ve lost a family member, child, friend or even dreams. We may carry hurt, shame or guilt because of our loss and that is not God’s plan for our life.
AW: What do you hope women will take away from your class?
CF: It’s an emotional class, but I really pray that women will leave my class with a sense that they’re not alone in this process and that they have the tools they need to start their road to grief restoration.
We also asked Cynthia some fun, “get-to-know-you” questions.
AW: What is your favorite scripture?
CF: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” ~Joshua 1:9
AW: Give one word to describe yourself.
AW: If you found a treasure chest, what would you hope was inside?
AW: What do you wish you had an endless supply of?
CF: Essential Oils & Pugs
AW: Without looking (we trust you), can you name all of the themes we’ve had for each of the past years of Awaken? (Hint: we’re on #8)
CF: 1) Awaken; 2) Cherished; 3) had a baby & missed this one); 4) Worthy; 5) Shine; 6) Brave; 7) Unstoppable
