It is time to register!

Please join us for a “24 Hour Time-Out”, the Deer Ridge Wives Getaway for 2019. We will meet at the retreat house for 24 short hours on Friday/Saturday, March 22-23! We will gather after 3:00 pm on Friday, have a meal together, hear from LeAnn and Nicki, and have some fun. Those who are traveling will stay overnight at the local Baymont hotel. We will meet Saturday morning for some inspiration and later lunch. We will plan to wrap up around 3:00. The cost is $25 deposit for EVERYONE. If you plan to stay all night at the Baymont Inn in Freeport, we will collect an additional $25 for hotel, etc. You may register anytime on this website.

Let us tell you about Nicki and LeAnn:

Nicki Bradshaw has lots of loves but her pursuit of Jesus in silence and solitude is her favorite (preferably on a beach). Nicki has been married to Chris, a pastor, for twenty-three years, has three thriving kids: Brayden (17), Gavin (15) and Caden (7).  She graduated from North Central University with a Pastoral Studies degree and is an ordained minister.  Nicki is currently the Operations Manager for a million-copy best selling author/speaker.  She is also a freelance graphic designer and in her dreams, a wanna-be super mom, professional singer and HGTV show host.  

LeAnn Riveness was raised in a pastor’s home and learned to love music and Jesus at an early age. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree and has been a ordained pastor since 2005. LeAnn is the Worship Arts Director and Worship Leader at Christian Life Church in Mt. Prospect, IL. She also is a professor of music at Christian Life College as well as a clinician, seminar and conference leader. We know her as a talented vocalist, pianist and guitarist. She is also the mother of two children and has a huge heart for serving God. Her fun-loving attitude and never ending energy will inspire you as she points you to the King of kings!

Come spend 24 hours in “Time-Out,” being refreshed in March!
