This year, for the first time ever, Karin Gunderson's ministry, Karing Journey, will be offering low-cost workshops and 1 & 2 day retreats for the women & girls in your congregation. The special event you choose will be in conjunction with a Heavenly Harp concert at your church.
Have you been looking for a way to re-engage and heal the women and girls in your community? This is the perfect opportunity.
Beauty from Ashes uses the power of story to facilitate inner-healing in women’s lives and then frees them from disempowering stories. Most females have some story in need of God’s redemption. In this retreat experience freedom from the lies you’ve believed for years.
God's truth is that your story matters. Psalm 107:2 says “Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story.”
Since 2014, Beauty for Ashes has reached over 5,000 women in 25 countries because of people like you, who are willing to share their story of redemption. God longs for His daughters to join Him in an intimate relationship. God wants to walk with you through healing and remind you, and all daughters of the King, of the identity and hope you have in Him.
If you want to join a Christ-centered community of women committed to spreading God’s love, then it’s time for you to bring it to your community!
It is simple to do with little preparation other than how you want to handle meals. Just gather 2 or 3 women to be your team and we will give your community a gift they will cherish the rest of their lives as they find the beauty amidst the most challenging times and events in their lives.

5. Through providing clean water ~

Explore London's British Museum & National Gallery, with an option to watch the changing of the guard & visit the St. Paul's Cathedral. Then feel the awesomeness & closeness of Jesus as you experience Evensong at Westminster Abbey.
After a couple days in London we'll fly to Switzerland where you can appreciate the beauty of the Alps as we ride a train to a visitors center on a mountain pass and then meander through the mountains on a well-traveled trail to our lunch spot. From there, we'll walk down a little more to catch the train back to the valley below.
The following day, have a day to sight- see, paraglide in the Alps or take a train to an ice hotel on top of one of the mountains! The next day, take a day-trip to Lucca, a Baroque Benedictine Abbey unlike the many Gothic, Renaissance, and Classical houses of worship you’ll see on the trip. Majestic and stunning scenery are everywhere.
Next, we'll climb on the train to take us over the Italian Alps and into Florence, Italy where we'll experience some of the finest sculptures, paintings, and Cathedrals in the world. We've got a fabulous native-Italian to take us on a walking tour of Florence including visiting the famous Duomo and Michelangelo's David. The following day we will visit a castle turned art gallery and it's fabulous grounds - the Uffizi gallery. The following morning we hop aboard a high-speed train to Rome.
In Rome, you'll want to see the Colosseum all lit up in the evening and we'll go to a concert
More detailed info on the entire tour and add-on option coming very soon!
Hope you'll join us!
