an awesome trek for WOmen!

We can’t wait to gather sisters for several intentional days of exploring God’s beautiful creation, developing in our own personal leadership capacities, growing in our spiritual union with Jesus, worshiping God in the wilderness and deepening friendships. These days together will be filled with fun, stories, depth, growth, reflection, silence, solitude, community and more!

Kelly Roddy

My name is Kelly Roddy and I live in Castle Rock, CO. My husband, Nate, and I have 6 amazing children and 2 (soon to be 3) precious little grandsons. I grew up camping frequently with my family and have always loved being outdoors.
I feel so fortunate to live in such a beautiful state that offers endless opportunities to get out and enjoy nature. Hiking is a great way for me to slow my mind and be free from the distractions of the world, to just meet with the Lord and marvel at all He has created.
