2020 Retreat - October 2-4

Hello Pilgrims! We are happy to announce our keynote speaker for the Northwest Pilgrims retreat on October 2-4, 2020. We are excited to have author and historian Fara Anderson Sneddon. Fara is one of the leading scholars researching the history of spiritual gifts of Latter-day Saint women, and in particular the gifts of healing and blessing. She is writing the first major academic work on this topic, set to be published in Spring, 2021. We can't wait to hear from her, and to see all of you!

We're also very excited about our breakout sessions. Some of our confirmed sessions include food shame and body image with Lauren Nokes; developing a personal connection with Heavenly Mother with Missy McConkie; and an author's discussion with Marianne Monson about her new historical fiction centered on Martha Hughes Cannon. Fara will also lead a breakout session about personal empowerment and healing in the face of religious historical trauma. Watch this space for more information about the other sessions as we confirm with more amazing women.
