Simply Joy Retreats

Join me for some great southern hospitality and amazing time away
for a unique retreat that will inspire, encourage
& give practical steps to you during this season of life!

Providing time for community and rest and encouragement and laughter and food and coaching is something I absolutely love doing for women! At each retreat, the meals shared, the time of relaxing, the moments to reflect, and the sessions of learning will do all of this and more!

The following retreats have many similar qualities not the least of which is that all provide a very safe place for gals to share as they desire. All retreats will conclude with participants leaving inspired and with very practical next steps.

But, each retreat has a very distinct purpose, schedule and target audience. Do any of these fit your current season of life? Click through each to see upcoming dates, costs and how to register.

Location for these retreats will vary. Each retreat page will be updated when a new one is added to the calendar.

Much of the content from these unique experiences can be taken “on the road” in the form of a workshop or retreat closer to your location. If you are interested in brainstorming about this option that will serve a larger group of women in your church or community, just pop an email to me (joycanupp@gmail.com) and we’ll get the conversation started.
