Hi, Love Muffin!

I first saw Trinity in the winter of 2019 and fell madly in love with the property. I had no idea how we would purchase it, but I KNEW Trinity was to be a big part of our future. It took months for everything to come together; we sold our home, my parents sold theirs, and so did my mother-in-law, and we all moved to Trinity…one big happy family! I prayed and promised God that if we were lucky enough to one day live at Trinity, it would be a place that always honored God. A place of joy, laughter, and restoration.

Located in the westernmost part of the Florida Panhandle is Trinity, a lush 23-acre escape situated on a pecan orchard complete with horse stables (and horses), a pond, and even the occasional white Crane we call “Clovis the Crane.” It is a refreshing haven, and we love every inch of it.

The Retreat at Trinity will be a life-giving, three-day experience for women giving clarity during seasons of flailing or feeling stuck. When you leave Trinity, you will be clear on your gifts, purpose, and next steps. You will leave with your cup overflowing, knowing you are beloved and not lacking anything to live the most fulfilling and beautiful life.

Scroll down for all the details! 

xoxo, Dawn

The Trinity weekend was born out of my flailing and feeling lost. I felt like a racehorse that had been put out to pasture and that I was being “left behind.” I had no direction, passion, or vision for what was next for my life, and it was time to get clear about my life and who I was.

If you are at a pivot point in life, feel like you are flailing a little, or have lost sight of who you are, then this retreat is for you. The Retreat at Trinity is about stepping into the life you were created to live. It doesn’t matter what your age is or what season you are in; you are where you are supposed to be for the NEXT season; we are just here to help you remember how glorious you are!

Who is the retreat for?

Our mornings will begin with coffee on the infamous Trinity porch with relaxation and laughter. Then, Emerald Coast Private Chefs will prepare a mouth-watering southern breakfast for us, and we’ll enjoy group walks around Trinity for those interested. But, of course, you can also sit and enjoy the porch, whatever makes you happiest in starting your days.

After breakfast, we will move inside for our large group gathering and break out into our smaller sessions in the afternoon. To me, a connection with each other is so important.

Afternoons are for work or play; you choose based on what you need to take care of yourself. At our dining experiences, you can expect gourmet meals, beautiful details, floral blooms, music, and lots of laughter. 

Our evenings will end relaxed in Adirondack chairs around the fire pit, wrapped in blankets with s’mores. Evenings are our time to chat, unwind and process all that we have done during our days.

Side note – we will not be riding horses. But you can pet and feed them; Lucy, Royal, Finn, and Coast will be delighted to see you!

After flying into PNS, the main Pensacola International Airport, we will arrange to pick you up at the airport with a cute little sign with your name on it. You’ll be able to connect with fellow attendees in our small Facebook group—who knows; you may even live in the same city!

The retreat runs from Friday at noon CT to Sunday at 3 pm CT. It is 25 minutes from Trinity to the PNS airport. When making travel arrangements, it is best to plan to attend the entire program so as not to miss any of the planned experiences. If you can, stay a few extra days to enjoy the sugar-white sands of Pensacola Beach. Don’t forget; we will pick you up and drop you off at the airport.

We will provide a complete packing list and other helpful details for the retreat a few months ahead of your retreat date, but trust me, it’s super casual, and no need for you to stress over what you will wear. You’ll also schedule a private call with Melissa to answer any questions you have and make a plan for what your focus will be during our retreat experience. But, beware, you will fall madly in love with her.

I’m intentionally keeping our retreats to a small, intimate number of 16 guests. This size allows for deep connections and even significant breakthroughs. In addition to the 16 guests, we will have four mentors, and don’t forget mom and dad are next door.

In September and October the weather is usually gorgeous. With temperature highs in the 80's and the lows in the 60's, it can't be beat. 

*Florida weather can change frequently. Make sure to check the weather before the retreat and pack accordingly (light jackets and small umbrellas are always a good idea).

I know that the world is crazy right now, and it’s hard to put a no refund policy into place. However, so much of what we are doing is customized and personalized for each guest, so retreats are nonrefundable, but you can put the monies towards a future retreat.
