Draw Near Retreat

January 22-24, 2021

Join us for a weekend to draw near to our creator, seek him, and know him through creative worship. Bible Journaling is a creative approach to visually capturing scripture, meditating on God’s word and hiding His truth in your heart. There is no need to be a skilled artist, all you need is a heart of worship and a willingness to experience God and His Word in a creative way.

For this retreat we have several packages to choose from. All packages include lodging for two nights, 5 meals, and 2 sessions of learning new skills and tools in Bible Journaling. You may choose from the following packages:

  • Community Cabin ($150)- Twin size bunk beds shared with same gender, will need to bring your own linen
  • Hotel Room Double Occupancy ($165)- 2 Queen size beds with linen provided, shared with another person of same gender, and a private shower
  • Hotel Room Single Occupancy ($175)- Queen size bed with linen provided and private shower



Hello, I am Amiee Nix and I have been Bible Journaling since January 2017. This form of worship has brought my relationship with God and His word to a new level. Prior to Bible Journaling, I had never considered myself a creative person. Shortly after I began Journaling, I had a minor stroke that left me – the always busy, never slowing down person I was – at home “resting” for 3 weeks. In that time I was not able to read much without getting dizzy so I turned to Pinterest and started recreating others pages. This became a very comforting and centering practice for me and actually helped me recover from my stroke.

I have been married to my husband Joshua for 10 years. We have two children Addicus 9 and Simon 5. We live in Mansfield, TX. Both my husband and I work on the Products Team at Mouser Electronics.
