Hi there, I'm  LaVonda

I am passionate about helping women who are held captive to self-judgment and mindset limitations experience the freedom to walk courageously in their God-given purpose.

Because I've experienced living beneath the labels of fear, shame, depression, and anxiety, I understand untapped potential along with the many other effects of a broken identity.   

I love teaching Bible Study and doing Prayer Walks.

The RefresHER Women's Retreat is a time that will teach you how to reach God's divine power within you so you can walk Confidently and Boldly in your calling!

“Life-Changing! It was my very first retreat of this magnitude. Yes, I’ve been to many before, but the intimacy, the fellowship, and the bond created by the circle of women (of all ages) who attended was unmatched. I laughed, I shouted, I danced, and yes, shed lots of tears.  

I was amazed (blown away) to see lives changed, stronghold broken, and joy restored. It was an unforgettable experience, more than I ever expected.

I left recharged, restored, and renewed with a deeper desire for the Lord. It rekindled the fire within me, my passion was stronger to walk in my purpose. I would definitely do it again and again and again”

 Tiffany Laitola

"I will never forget my first RefresHER Retreat!  

The meeting of women, the long night discussions, the times of prayer, sharing, laughing and even the tears, were instrumental in my journey with Christ.  This was a time of pivot in my journey from knowing about God to knowing Him!

I not only took away awesome messages and words of encouragement, but inner healing, a reinvigorated desire for more of Him, and newfound sisters!  

I look forward to future RefresHER Retreats hosted by Pastor LaVonda and her Joyful Journey team."

God uses Christian retreats as a powerful way to connect with His daughters. This means the enemy is going to do whatever he can to stop it. Or at least water down the message or its effectiveness or its ability to get into the hands of those who need to read it.  So it's imperative that all of us keep our hearts on the Lord and that we support and encourage one another.

You don't need to do anything at the retreat except listen to the Holy Spirit's promptings and follow them.
