We each know what it feels like to be broken. To feel like we were sent here with a purpose, but didn't know how to live up to our potential. There were things that were holding each of us back. But as we've continued to grow, we have each found the only place to find true happiness, peace and fulfillment is THROUGH our Savior, Jesus Christ.
The first time the four of us got together, I was broken. But, He blessed me with these beautiful, strong, courageous friends who also knew what being broken feels like. Women who were willing to share their talents and put their faith in His work. You see, this is not our retreat. This is God's.
And if you let Him, He will change your life.
"Your struggles do not define you, but the can refine you. Because of a 'thorn in the flesh', you may have the ability to feel more compassion toward others. As guided by the Holy Ghost, share your story in order to 'succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees'."
-Reyna I. Aberto
Turn is a place for women who are hurting. Women who are trying to understand. Women who want peace and who want to hope so badly that the promises our Savior has promised, really can be theirs.
Our journeys continue to refine us. We have each had a "thorn in the flesh", but it has allowed us to have more compassion for others. And our hope is to succor the weak, lift up the hands which hand down and strengthen the feeble knees.
We are each still a work in progress, but our perspectives are each so much brighter. Our joy is full. Not in just a "the cup is half full instead of half empty" kind of way, but in a "my cup runneth over" I'm so blessed kind of way. And if you're wondering how that's possible, it's because we have each felt Christ has saved us from the "gall of bitterness."
And we want that for you too!
