“It is 8:17 Monday morning...and it still seems too good to be true – the fact that I can face today without the fear I had on Friday. I have a greater trust in Him than ever before – the “giants” are still around me but I am better prepared to face them. I am actively looking at the world around me to identify every opportunity to serve, to invest in people, to do His will. I am sure folks have offered their gratitude in far more profound and in articulate ways than I can. Consequently, let me keep it simple. Thank You....from the bottom, top, and all of my heart. When a neighbor asked me how it went yesterday, I thought I would spew a long response about how great it was and how much they need to go. However, all I could do was smile and say “it was life-changing and life-saving and when you are ready I would love to talk to you about it.”
"...nevertheless, it's extremely hard for me to put into words what this weekend meant to me, and the level of impact it has had on my life. While there are still a lot of unanswered questions in my head, I think I now "get it." I understand what it means to be a man, living life thoroughly immersed in God's love. And now that I understand, my primary focus is to live that out. A journey and struggle yes, but one that I welcome."
“I have never experienced the fullness of God's love through fellowship with other believers like last weekend! It was a blessing to share in the tragedies of other men and to see how the power of Christ can overcome all circumstances. Although my story may be far less compelling, I came to the realization that living a lukewarm Christian life is, nonetheless, tragic. I now have a truer, fuller understanding of what Jesus meant when he said, "So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed."
"The weekend was perfect. The experience filled voids, answered questions, pointed arrows of direction, and reintroduced me to the power of the Holy Spirit. The speakers and program topics were excellent and inspirational. The heartfelt openness was so incredible. I met many great guys with whom I hope to stay in contact and plan to pursue a men`s group. My deepest gratitude goes out for inviting me to participate…I know it was part of God`s plan. Sign me up for servant duty!"
“Mere words cannot express my feelings after attending this weekend’s Souly Business retreat. The authenticity and love shown by the leaders, speakers, servers, and Brothers was unbelievable! I have been shown true servant leadership and look forward to utilizing this in the real estate venue. I have been blessed beyond measure and my expectations were exceeded. I also look forward to inviting many friends to future retreats.”
“Sometimes words can't match feeling and that's the way I feel this morning. I truly believe that this past weekend changed my life. Thank you and everyone who served us this weekend. With Christ now in my heart and not my head, Souly Business has given me a foundation that will change my life.”
“Thank you for your authenticity, honesty, and unconditional acceptance. You have touched me in a way that both inspires and encourages me to seek a more intimate relationship with God. For that, I am truly eternally grateful. It brings joy and strength to my heart knowing that the journey back home to Him is not as lonely as it has been up to this point in my life. Thank you for offering your heart, your truth, your strength and your love. It is comforting to be able to walk with men who desire to drop their masks and risk being real.”
