Did you know that 1 in 4 women, and families, will experience miscarriage, stillbirth, and/or infant loss? This is such a staggering statistic. If it hasn’t happened directly to you, with numbers this high, chances are you most likely know a family member or friend who has suffered this type of loss.
Hope Mommies was created for the 1 in 4 as a Christian nonprofit whose sole purpose is to come alongside the bereaved – bringing comfort, encouragement, companionship, and hope as they continue to walk this side of eternity without their beloved son or daughter.
This April, Hope Mommies will be hosting our Annual Retreat in person again (for the first time since March of 2020!) for these grieving mothers to seek and worship the Lord, as they begin to process the trauma and celebrate their children’s lives together, right here at Tejas.
Hope Mommies held a retreat at Tejas for the first time in the winter of 2015 and it instantly felt like the perfect fit for us. Tejas is just far enough outside of town to really feel like an escape from daily life, the grounds on the Meadows side of camp are gorgeous and serene, the Four Seasons conference room is the perfect size to host and serve 75 women, and the staff at Tejas is always accommodating, professional, and friendly to work with.
We are prayerfully asking our Tejas family if anyone would be interested in donating towards scholarships for women to attend this event in April. The full cost for one woman to attend this retreat is $340 for the entire weekend – this includes all meals and lodging at Tejas, along with 4 keynote speaking sessions, 4 times of worship, unlimited access to a Prayer Room, 3 small group times, Hope Box Gathering supplies, a goody bag filled with specially curated items to shower them with love and point them to Jesus in their grief, a devotional, a 11×14 birth print, and more!
The life change that happens at our retreats is so important. Please be in prayer for our upcoming event and that Jesus will heal and comfort the women who attend this year.
