    THis would be a great opportunity as a never-married woman in full-time ministry to connect with other woman who are dreaming big God dreams for their lives.

  26. I would love to win this Retreat Package because iBloom has been such a huge part of my growth spiritually and personally. The community and team have changed my life. I have honestly found my purpose and passion in ministerying to women because of the iChoose2Love My Life and Equippment Women for Business books. The membership calls have helped nurture me as I nurture others especially when asked, “How can the team pray for me?” Wow!
    I would love the $500 gift certificate because I am planning on bring my husband and boys to KY. We would use that so they could have guy time while I am at the retreat having girl time. Having lunch with Kelly would be so inspirational! The spa and goodies would be awesome too.
    Whether I win or lose, I have gained because of the blessing I have received just being part of the iBloom community.

  27. I would love to be your VIP guest because I have always wanted to come to this retreat, but have never been able to afford to. My youngest is going off to college this fall and, after sixteen years of homeschooling, I am facing having an empty nest. I’m not sure of the direction of my blog or my life, for that matter. I know many of the women who go to the retreat each year, and I would love to actually meet them face-to-face and feel the sense of community that they feel each year. I need some inspiration, guidance, support, and friendship! Thanks so much for offering this giveaway! 🙂
