I have attended several retreats Facilitated by Freedom Ain't Free and I have no words to explain just how powerful they all were. The freedom that I had when I was there was so refreshing. I have grown so much from the tools I learned and I am a better Mother, wife and all around person because what I was able to release there freed me from a mental bondage that I had no clue I was in. I now know that other women are feeling the same way I used to. I look forward to the next one.

What can I say about my experience at the women's retreat? Simply life changing! One of the best experiences I have ever had...
Growing up I have suffered many different challenges, which lead me to be stand offish and have major trust issues. Because of all that I suffered I did not allow myself to get close to other females, so when my sister invited me to attend a women's retreat with her, I was very hesitant. However, I am so very happy that I decided to go. I felt as if the whole World was on my shoulders, but during that first retreat I was completely set FREE. I was given the freedom to share just how I felt, and the other ladies helped me to release it all and learn how to look at my past, present and even my future with hope. I am forever changed, and motivated to be even healthier.
I have met many female "leaders" either claiming to be one thing or another, and all claiming to care so much for other women. But they turned out to be a complete fraud. But when I met Pastor Lisa Bush, she was exactly what she said she was. During the retreat she was so attentive to all of us, but it was her transparency that really drew me in because it made me feel as if, she was just like me. A work in progress. When I returned home, everyone in my family said I had a glow, I told them, "I am free." That retreat changed my life, and I will forever be grateful.
I have had many years of therapy, but still I felt stuck. But after one weekend at the Freedom retreat, my mind was transformed, I realized that I had been in a mental and spiritual prison for years. That one weekend did what years of therapy could not, free me. I wish I could get all that money back I wasted.
I have gone on many women retreats. Go, have fun, meet some nice ladies, and when it is over, it's just over. No follow up, no nothing, but not the Freedom retreat. Not only was the entire weekend impactful, but the aftermath was a continued connection with not just all the ladies, but Pastor Lisa Bush the Facilitator. The sessions were so powerful, they literally gave me life, I had never experienced anything like it in my life. I can now say, I love me some me, and mean it.
One of the sessions that stood out to me at the Freedom retreat was, "The power in submission" that very word made me angry. I felt as if that word was made just to keep women in bondage, but here was a woman teaching about it. Pastor Lisa Bush taught me that there is power in submitting to my husband, and she had scripture to back it up. I now look at submission as a powerful tool instead of a noose around my neck. I will be attending the Freedom Retreats every year.
