A Note from Rachel:

I’m a mom…I get it. We spend our days pouring into the lives of others, which can leave us in need of spiritual and practical refreshment. Being a homeschooling mama of seven children, I understand the unique needs mom faces; An Evening of Real Refreshment is a wonderful time for moms to join with other moms and seek refreshment at the throne of our Father.
