In a fun Will Rogers’ fashion Morna takes the audience through the cattle drive of steering the audience through how to truly love the Lord our God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind and all our strength. As practical as learning the ropes, but filled with the passion of a fireside chat around the campfire, your audience will long remember the truths shared in this weekend western retreat. Bring your boots, bandanas and cowgirl hats!
(If there are only 3 sessions then I would combine Session II and III into one session.)
Rebuilding the Ancient Ruins
This weekend retreat addresses the root problems of pride, bitterness, moral impurity, and greed and how to work toward healing. A powerful, life changing weekend! Your audience will be transformed!
Becoming a Woman of Character
In this retreat we look at what character truly is and why it is desperately needed in our lives. The true test of our character is when we go through ‘testing’ so Morna discusses how to walk through the refiner’s fire triumphing rather than just surviving. There are four key character qualities that will truly bless a woman if she demonstrates them from her heart – this is Morna’s challenge for all of us to apply!
Garden of JOY (3-4 sessions)
This retreat uses the analogy of having a garden. We begin by planting the seeds that will produce joy – what does this look like? Then there is the waiting period – in the dark seasons of life while the seeds are in the dirt – how do we endure these seasons with joy? The harvesting is always the bonus when it is filled with joy – but how do we be sure to reap the joy?
Abundant Grace (3-4 sessions)
Grace is such a misunderstood term in the church today – so we look at the difference between grace and mercy. Then we explore the difference between a grace-filled life and a legalism-filled life. Abundant grace is what we are designed for so this workshop discusses what that abundance is made up of.
Treasure Hunters In this message, Morna passionately shares the importance of knowing and using your gifts in the Body of Christ. A workbook accompanies this weekend presentation.
Piecing it Together (3-4 sessions)
Using the analogy of making a quilt the audience looks at their lives as a quilt by gathering the pieces of their life experiences. We then lay those pieces down – at the feet of Jesus and watch as He slowly, one stitch at a time, creates a beautiful pattern perspective in our lives. The culmination is the process of seeing how He takes rags and turns them into something exquisitely rich!
Faith in Action (3-4 sessions)
Faith is not blind obedience – with this retreat setting we explore the truth behind exercising faith. We look at not only our actions but also our attitude which can hinder or help our walk of faith. We also look at applying the principles learned and explore what does faith in action truly look like?

“She was fantastic!" You will hear this over and over again after Morna has spoken at a retreat. The joy of the Lord radiates from her demeanor.....but the high point is the way she shares the practical truths from the Word with passion, humor and practicality.
Morna is a seasoned speaker, teaching several weekly Bible studies, is a MOPS speaker, a Stonecroft speaker, and does close to 20 retreats a year. She is a popular speaker for home school conventions and meetings.
She is willing to take on challenging topics often neglected/ignored in the church. She is the founder of Damsel Squads, support/care groups for women whose men are/have been involved in sexual addictions; she has several care groups for molestation/rape victims and is founder and trainer of Focus on Character, a ministry focusing on Godly character to both secular audiences and Bible believers. She is a leader and trainer for many women’s ministries.
Those who have seen her ministry in motion agree that her ministry is backed up by her character. Morna takes you deeper in your walk with the Lord because she has traveled there as well. Everything in her life revolves around the Lord and she inspires others to move closer and closer to the Lord. "She kept us riveted to our seats with hearts open," reported a retreat committee chairman.
