What people are saying...
This icon retreat drew me in because of the image of Our Lady of Sorrows. I had no desire to hold a brush or create the best art work of my life. What I have gained from this retreat was an immense intimacy of Jesus living in me. I also realized that silence and solitude is imperative in the spiritual life. May I never be far from you, Lord. I love my icon because it's mine and may God be glorifued with my efforts.

I'm very grateful for Brenda's expertise, patience and prayers during our icon retreat. If you are thinking how you wish you could do this? Do it! The Lord is inviting you to step out in faith.

Writing an icon has been a beautiful experience and I would highly recommend it! The wonderful spiritual journey you go on along the way with Jesus is like no other. The answered prayers during the experience are so exciting! It's not easy but, it's worth it! It will change your life.

Brenda is a heartwarming, patient person. I loved the retreat. I would do this again. You learn more than just how to paint; you learn about yourself and how to pray in another way.

Brenda's icon workshop was fantastic. I never would have believed I could create something like this. Brenda is a great teacher; she is patient, kind and encouraging. It was a very fulfilling and spiritual experience. I would recommend this to anyone, whether you can paint or not!
