The Great Exchange Weekend


2019  Michigan Schedule
(see SW Florida tab for Florida dates)

Experience Transformation...
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair Isaiah 61:3
Our Mission:
The Great Exchange Experiential Healing Weekend's mission is to help women recognize who they are in Christ, and allow opportunities for them to connect with and experience Him personally. We aim to help women experience healing from their brokenness and truth for their false beliefs.
We take a journey of metamorphosis together as we consider the transformation that one of God's beautiful creations (the butterfly) goes through. This weekend is a safe place where we can relax, let down our guard and the facade, take off our masks and be real allowing the Holy Spirit access to our hearts while being supported by our sisters in the Lord.
Following are some of the specific challenges that can be changed and healed on this weekend:
  • Negative Self-Talk/ False Beliefs
  • Not being able to let go of the past
  • Failed relationships
  • Unresolved grief and anger
  • Lack of deep relationships
  • Living with depression, anxiety or shame
Unlike a conventional Christian Women's Retreat, these weekends are designed to be a smaller, intimate community to ensure a dynamic experience normally not found at a larger retreat. There is a detailed outline of processes in both large and small groups that build on each other throughout the weekend. This weekend is all about exchanges the Lord wants to make in our lives: beauty for ashes, strength for fear, gladness/joy for mourning, ........   
The cost for the weekend is $225 (earlybird) - $250 thereafter which includes 2 nights lodging, meals, and materials. A $50 non-refundable deposit will hold your spot. Should you have to cancel, the deposit can be transferred to another woman, or used for a future weekend. There is on occasion financial assistance for those who need it. Please contact us via e-mail if scholarship is needed.

What previous participants said they liked the most about the weekend:
"I felt a lot of healing this weekend. I really felt my hunger for God that I haven't felt in a long time."
"The flow from worship to healing..."
"The peaceful atmosphere - it allowed for openness, trust and fellowship. Just the time given for God to work among us. Worship/singing..."
"I have always enjoyed interceding on behalf of others and it was powerful to see the prayers we were saying be answered before our eyes. I also enjoyed free time to talk with other women"
"First, I just want to say thank you so, so much for all of your hard work and for just being willing to be used by God in such an amazing way this weekend. I've been on other retreats, and though they were good in their own way, when it comes to offering a place for healing, they didn't compare. I know that God is the Healer here, but I also want to recognize that you and your team set up a wonderful, very well-organized atmosphere that really allowed defenses to come down and for God to do His incredible work. So thanks, thanks, thanks!!"
"I just wanted to thank Life Care and the amazing women who run this weekend. It was the most life changing experience for me! It literally changed my life. I have never been happier or closer to God. I'm not there all the way yet but I have taken some giant steps on and since that weekend. Thanks ladies! I will never forget! :)"
