Diamonds In The Rough

November 8-9 2019




Rhonda Kaye Dryden 

Join us for a weekend retreat of pampering and learning about how God makes diamonds out us. We will be staying at the Carol Joy Holling Conference and Retreat Center;  27416 Ranch Road, Ashland, NE, out by Mahoney State Park. Meals for Friday night and Saturday will be included.

Rhonda’s “Diamonds In The Rough” topic teaches women that they are God’s treasure, and that He is working in their life to expose the diamond that He has created them to be.  She explains why God would choose to make diamonds out of us, how he goes about that process, explores our spiritual value based on the four C’s of diamonds, and  shares how we are to keep our sparkle as God’s  peculiar treasure.
