We don't claim to have all the answers, but we know the One who does.
We offer annual retreats and seminars; we also offer private workshops for ministry couples in need of a mentorship getaway.
Married 48 years and serving 40+ years in Pastoral Ministry; we have learned a few things. The valuable times we shared with other pastoral couples definitely helped us maintain our faith and family responsibilities. We have learned that taking time to rest, recharge and revive our private relationships gives us the strength and passion to give our best as we serve in public ministry.
We have raised three sons - Brocc, Cortt, and Kyle - all married and in full-time ministry. Family is a high priority with us - and we especially enjoy spending time with our ten amazing grandchildren!
We have retired from a lead pastor position and are making ourselves available - to come alongside the parsonage families - who may need genuine, authentic mentors.
Living in the glass house - AKA "the Parsonage"
can be a haven of rest - or hell on earth!
Much of that depends on the Parsonage Woman.
If you are the wife of a Pastor, a Lady Pastor,
or perhaps a Pastor's daughter... this Retreat is for you!
Welcome to a safe place to dream, heal and recharge.

Jesus told us to “Tell her story” and Wanda Chavis has done just that.
She brings us into Mary Magdalene’s life. You feel her pain as a child, her anger as an adult, and her torment as the demons rage within her. Her deliverance from Idolatry will amaze you as Wanda weaves Mary’s story into yours. Experiencing Calvary and Pentecost through Mary’s eyes will bring you to these questions:
This is a life-changing story of love, hope, and faith!
Are Your Ribbons Tied?

You will be challenged to take inventory of your own life, to ensure you are truly serving God from a heart of genuine love. You will never see a blue ribbon the same after reading this book!

Reflections from the Parsonage.
Dedicated to Parsonage Women... (Pastor's Wives and Daughters), with messages to the masses.
