What makes this a RETREAT rather than just another book event?

At the CBLR we recognize that the hundreds of women who attend the retreat are busy professionals and/or housewives with children and/or grandchildren. These women pour into everyone else and everything else all year long, so this retreat is designed to pour into YOU!

We deliver soul stirring praise & worship and faith focused events that will rejuvenate and inspire believers to dig deeper, worship and find their place in God. The CBLR is not just an event, it's an experience! We also want you to have tons of fun, so we have gameshows and parties that you will thoroughly enjoy. Our authors host parties and soical events to say thank you to our many readers. 

... For the reader in you, we also have a huge book fair on Saturday afternoon.

Why you should attend...

The Christian Book Lover's Retreat is built on the principles of Faith. Fun. Fellowship... and a whole lot of books. With this in mind we bring our attendees faithfilled events such as a Prayer Journey, Morning Glory and praise and worship. This year our faith event will  be a Strongholds -vs- A Strong God event that will help us pull down the strongholds in our lives. For fun we will be having a 70s Party, pajama party, book release party, gameshows and so much more... You will have the time of your life at the 2019 CBLR as you enjoy our many events and fellowship with other attendees.

We do everything with the EXPERIENCE in mind. So, we're not just having a welcome reception on Thursday to welcome our attendees to the retreat... it will be a Hawaiian themed welcome reception.

You won't just get a regular party out of us... last year we did the White Party and this year it will be the 70s Party. So, get your 70s gear and join us for Faith. Fun. Fellowship... and a whole lot of books!

What to expect at the 2019 CBLR...

There's a lot to do at the Christian Book Lover's Retreat. You don't want to miss a moment of it.

From Mess to Magnet: Five Secrets to Attract and Keep Lasting Love

Does this sound familiar? -You prayed, fasted and shouted over the prayer box, and yet, no husband. -You have more bridesmaid dresses than you care to mention. -You have hosted enough bridal showers to last a lifetime. -And if one more guy tells you that you are too special to be single, you will scream! Instead of trying to rush God's promise like Sarah did with Hagar; focus on being anointed for marriage. Queen Esther spent an entire year preparing for one night with a man who was already her husband. How much more preparation is required for a man whom you haven't met?

TESTIMONIALS

What People are Saying about CBLR:

The fellowship is unbelievable.
Vanessa Riley
I have never felt the presence of God so much at a single event outside of church and I have attended a lot of Christian conferences within the area I live.
CBLR Attendee 2018
I saw an advertisement for the Christian Book Lover's Retreat on Facebook and immediately paid the full registration fee before I could change my mind. Not only did I enjoy the retreat. But I have learned so much about myself good and bad. Also, within this week I have had God move in BiG ways.
CBLR Attendee 2018
After attending CBLR, I had a sense of peace that I had not felt prior. I needed those few days of just communing with God and with other Christians. I want to encourage you to continue this work that God has given you. I will be there next year!
CBLR Attendee 2017
I am in awe of this retreat and I felt very honored to be among so many beautiful and talented authors
Author 2017 CBLR
Excellent event, great people! I loved worshipping with others.
Stephanie 2016 CBLR Attendee
I cannot give this retreat a # from 1-10. I will say INFINITY... the goodie bags, the structure of author appearances, the workshops and parties... everything was a blessing.
Laverne 2016 CBLR Attendee
Great event; well attended; lots to do. Yippee! Woohoo! Kudos! Amazing presenters.
Valerie 2016 CBLR Attendee
There were a lot of great things that were planned. All of the speakers were DYNAMIC! This was my first time, but I will definitely be back!
Monica 2017 CBLR
It was not just one "event" that touched my mind and my soul at the retreat. It was the love, friendliness, compassion, togetherness, camaraderie-- I could go on and on. Don't stop! Keep this retreat going. It is truly a blessing.
Felicia 2017 CBLR Attendee
