Living With Power Retreats

Get away from the distractions of everyday life and find rest and restoration for your soul with a Christian Women’s Retreat led by Lina Abujamra and the Living With Power team.


If you are a Christian woman looking to cultivate intimacy with God, hear Him more clearly, find hope and healing for your soul, deepen your relationship with others, and renew your focus on your God-given purpose, the Living With Power Retreats are just what you need.


Silent Retreats


In the busyness of life, how do you as a Christian woman live a life that cultivates intimacy with God? How do you learn to slow down to hear the voice of the Savior and know His deep love for you? How do you find rest and peace in the midst of all responsibilities?


Come on a silent retreat to unplug, break away from the distractions of everyday life, and focus on what’s most important in your life – your relationship with God.


Silent Retreats for Christian women at The Hope Ranch give you the space and solitude to focus on your Creator and his deep love for you.

The Hope Ranch is an outstanding farm on 5 acres with stocked pond, barn, garden, and a beautiful lawn with walking paths. Retreat guests will share rooms and bathrooms but will find sufficient space throughout the home and property to focus on being alone with God.


The Hope Ranch is located only 25 miles from O’Hare Airport and 40 miles NW of Chicago in the quiet suburb of Barrington, Illinois. 


The Hope Ranch is about as good as it gets for retreats. The setting is beautiful, calming, yet full of interest. Good walks, good sunrises. The interior is spacious and inviting, the food delicious and the atmosphere has a quiet depth that holds people well, encouraging whatever exploration they have come for, through a workshop or a personal retreat.
