Tired Mamas Retreat
November 2024
Location: Mariposa Retreat House, Pasadena, CA

When Pastor Chamie’s younger son was 11 years old, he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It meant the family had to learn a whole new normal. She didn't sleep much that first year. Even now, many years later with her son an adult, she still awakes to his blood sugar alarms. She knows from personal experience what it is like to have a child with a chronic disease. No matter what chronic disease or illness you as a mom might be tending, Pastor Chamie wants to help give you a little rest and encouragement. This is an opportunity to respond to Jesus' invitation that if you are tired and weary, come find rest for your soul - and your body. On retreat, you can nap if you want. All the food will be made for you. No laundry to do. You can have alone time as well as time to lean on other moms. And all of us mamas will be prayer warriors together for each other and our children.


I was one tired mama when this photo was taken in the PICU after Jude's diagnosis.
