Come "Awaken" your scripture study with Worthy Written Words at a 2 night retreat from March 22- March 24th! You will learn new ways to study your scriptures, techniques for documenting what you learn when you study, as well as how to illustrate in your wide margin scriptures using different art mediums. There are 20 available tickets for this event.
The specific address will be made known to you after you register your spot for safety reasons. But it is located in Orem, Utah. In order to keep costs down for all of us, its an older home on the outside, but beautiful, clean, and functional on the inside. I'm attaching pictures with the beds labeled. The cost of your ticket will depend on the kind of bed that you choose. A king will cost more than a bunk bed for example. All rooms are shared, no private rooms, again trying to keep costs down. Beds are private with the exception of a couple options available to share if you want to share with a friend. Most beds are in a room except for the sofa bed from the living room couch and 4 single roller beds that can be put where ever. First come first serve on spots both in purchase and when you arrive at the house. Ex: You purchase a single bed, you get to pick which single bed you want based on when you arrive.

Bonus Class Details:
Bonus Classes are optional but do not count towards your registration fee. Due to the additional supplies needed, each class has a separate cost that will be added to your registration ticket. You can choose none, each individually, or all three if you like.
Create Your Own Scripture Journal: This class uses an 11X14 drawing pad and turns it into your own Coptic Journal. Coptic Journals are hand sewn and lay flat when opened. We will paint the cover a basic color first. Then assemble the journal. If there is time left I can walk you through how to paint a design on the cover. Or you can do your own thing, and continue to work on it during down time.
Create a Charm Bookmark for your Scriptures/Journal: I will bring all of my ribbons and charms and show you how to make a bookmark that will be sized to fit your scriptures or your journal. You can use a design I have already made or make a custom one.
Paint Your Scripture Cover: This class walks you through how to paint a design on the cover of your Book of Mormon or Bible. You can do the class design (not chosen yet) or do your own design.
Food consists of Breakfast Sat & Sun, lunch for Saturday, and lots of snacks! Please eat dinner before coming Friday night. Dinner on Saturday is on your own. Day passes do not include breakfast on Saturday morning but do include lunch. If you have any dietary allergies please let us know in the notes at checkout.
What You Need to Bring:
- A Wide Margin Book of Mormon or Bible. I will have a few for sale at the retreat if needed. I will need to know what kind you are bringing in order to have supplies at the correct size. We can discuss this in a private FB group specifically for the retreat!
- Money for dinner on Saturday night. Optional- money for the extra goodies we will have for sale at the retreat. All needed supplies are provided, but we will have additional fun stuff you may want to take home.
- If you are not taking the "Create Your Own Scripture Journal" Bonus Class, you should bring a journal as you will learn how to document the information you are learning when you study.
- Optional: any scrapbooking supplies that you love that you want to use while here. I will have supplies for all the layouts we do, but if you ever have down time and want to do your own thing, you may want this.
