The weather couldn’t have been more gorgeous a couple weekends ago as we welcomed a small group of men to our Shoot Straight Retreat. Men came to Whisper Mountain to get away from their responsibilities for a while and to breathe slower and deeper with a little man time in the woods! Fathers and sons came together which made for an even more memorable time.
100 yard shoot was challenging and fun!
Pros and amateurs alike enjoyed the challenge of the 3D Archery Tourney! Bears, turkey, deer, boar and a few other 3D animal targets could be found scattered throughout our woods awaiting the rounds of arrows heading for their kill zone! Some arrows met their mark, and well, some never did! But in the end, the getting away, the connecting and the encouragement made the weekend a success!
Here’s what one person said about the men’s weekend:
We are already looking forward to next year! Mark your calendars for October 6-8, 2017! We hope to see you then, if not sooner!
:: sipping of coffee, tea or cocoa in the cozy cafe
:: connecting, fellowshipping, sharing for days
:: walking, playing, working in an autumnal forest
:: painting, creating, reflecting in the studio
:: enjoying, picnicking, filling of good food
:: viewing a late night movie on lawn
:: worshipping indy style
:: chatting, laughing, warming by the fireside
:: discovering, reminding, encouraging
Though our weekend looked different than we thought or planned, a message of grace and love from a personal God was shared. The details of the heart are His alone!
Thank you to those who were a part, who prayed through the process, or who shared in some way to help make this weekend what God wanted it to be!

Happy February! Being welcomed at the end of a long day driving by the same loving friends as last year was such a delight! Hugs, food, laughter and a little *after dinner frozen delight* blessed us tremendously! When I say frozen delight, I'm speaking of the chilly swimming pool fun! Since when did cold water ever stop kids from swimming?!
Today we are busy with setting up the booth and beginning orientation for this week's events! Grateful to be here! We'll be in touch!
May you find delight in your day!
From the land of sunshine and palm trees,
The Whisper Mountain crew
