Welcome to Serenity Retreats

We are so happy you have found us. Serenity is on a mission to help women reach the healing they are searching for, to assure them IT is possible, and provide encouragement that the opportunity for a bright future IS ahead. We care deeply about the pain, and the stories surrounding the pain, of each person who walks through the doors of our retreat. We have personal experience with grief that comes from loss, sickness, the past, betrayal, and more. This experience has created a team that is passionate about creating an experience where transformation, purpose, and change can begin. We believe women carry an amazing responsibility of influence and impact in our communities, families, friendships, and workplaces. And we believe that the best gift you can give to yourself is healing.

Serenity Retreats focuses on giving each guest the opportunity to get away from the chaos of life, renew and strengthen their MIND, BODY, and SOUL for a complete and overall approach to long-lasting healing.

We take the best of various types of retreats and merge them together making Serenity Retreats a One-of-a-Kind experience. In fact, there are no other women’s retreats quite like Serenity. We think you will agree.

Serenity's4Pillars

Intensive Counseling - Pillar 1 - Serenity Retreats

Intensive

With 15 hours of small group intensive sessions, guests can process through significantly more issues than the traditional counseling methods of 1 hour a week. Guests will receive 15 weeks of group work in only a couple of days. In addition, the group setting has proven to be a wonderful tool for healing, as women are able to connect and find empathy with others working through healing as well.

Each of our group facilitators have been trained and certified to lead group sessions through the reputable Light University’s Christian Leadership Counseling Program.
Curriculum - Pillar 2 - Serenity Retreats

Curriculum

Serenity Retreats believes that healing is an ongoing process that includes multiple facets, but that the most complete healing comes when we incorporate faith and allow the healing power of the LORD to do its work. There is a direct correlation between progress and faith. We have seen this, experienced it firsthand, and believe it with all our hearts. Therefore, Serenity uses Scripture and prayer as key elements as we work through the curriculum to healing during group sessions.
Wellness - Pillar 3 - Serenity Retreats

Wellness

The body, mind, and soul are all intricately woven together. Therefore, in effort to achieve the best versions of ourselves we must carefully tend to each. During the Retreat, guests can expect nothing less than the best when it comes to food, accommodations, and enrichment activities. Our in-house Chef creates beautiful, healthy meals each day. Guests will also have opportunity to participate in therapeutic wellness activities, such as paddle boarding, bicycling, massage, restorative prayerful stretching, and much more.
All-Inclusive - Pillar 4 - Serenity Retreats

All-Inclusive

Serenity Retreats wants to pamper each guest with the most luxurious accommodations. When booking a healing retreat at Serenity you can expect to receive, included in the cost, a beautifully furnished bedroom in a pristine beach home, all meals and snacks prepared by our talented chef, and access to beach chairs, bikes, and paddleboards. In addition, each guest will be scheduled to receive an individual massage and partake in enrichment activities such as beach bonfires, sunrise breakfast, and more. Guests will also leave with gifts as tokens of the healing experience. Our hearts’ desire is for our guests to experience love, comfort, and serenity from the moment they enter until the moment they depart.

This was an incredible experience! The gorgeous setting, pampering of souls and bodies, intentionally well paced and flexible schedule, and the compassion from the attendees and facilitators, provided for a truly restorative respite. The counselors encouraged sharing in a safe and relaxed atmosphere and provided tangible coping skills and takeaways, to use on our individual healing journeys. We spent an extended weekend together and came away refreshed.

Listen, I just thought I won a little “beach retreat” at a charity auction for women in addiction and sexual trafficking. 😅 I had no idea what I had really bid on, nor how the Lord would use this time away to intimately meet me; to speak to my heart, spoil me, and have an opportunity to bond with a group of strangers over a matter of days in a way I didn’t imagine possible. I didn’t even know it was a healing retreat until I got there! 🫣🙃 BUT GOD knew. I had no idea what to expect honestly. But any expectation was blown away. Besides all the “physical” stuff like food or accommodations, let’s talk about the emotional, mental and most importantly, spiritual, part of the retreat. The facilitator Nikki had such a calming peace about her that eased any thoughts of tension or anxiety. She had godly wisdom. Mallory made sure we had the best of everything. Including physical activity on and off the beach. A thousand tiny details made it that much more special. The notebooks, flowers in each room, and the list goes on. The ladies attending were an eclectic mix from all over the US. The stories shared were deeply personal and simultaneously heartbreaking. Who would’ve imagined we would allow ourselves to be so vulnerable, so much so that we created a true sisterhood in a matter of 2-3 days?! Yes, we have our own private fb page so we can stay in touch and continue to support and pray for one another 💝 Let’s talk about the accommodations - 5 star. The food was absolutely 5 star. The pampering was 5 star. And I am bougee if I do say so myself - so it was extra - and extra good in all possible ways 😂 If you’re thinking of going, expect God to meet you there and begin the healing process with you. This isn’t a “light hearted” event generally speaking. There are serious and heavy pieces and parts. And there are also easier and lighter parts. And unexpected moments of release and joy. If you’re looking for surface feel good stuff this isn’t it. This requires doing some inner work, the willingness to be raw, real and vulnerable, and Christian love and empathy for your sisters in Christ. I’m still doing work and have faith God will do the heavy lifting. Worship night on the last night was truly special. Bring your comfy clothes, your sunscreen and Bible; leave your worries and online life at home. You won’t regret your decision. The most important result for me is that I reconnected with Jesus in a way I haven’t been in a long, long time. That is priceless! I’m so grateful to Mallory for being open and obedient to the Lord’s leading to start this ministry.

To put into words the experience of Serenity Retreats is such a hard task. When I first arrived at the house, I didn’t know what to expect. I went there with hopes of healing past trauma and emotional pain, but I gained so much more. All 9 of us women were strangers but before that first night was over we were all sisters in Christ. We listened to each other’s stories of pain and cried together. There was also so much laughter and joy. Mallory and Alexa and the rest of the team pampered us with their servant hearts. The way they lead their lives is a testament to their faith and ministry. On the third day all 9 of us were baptized in the ocean symbolizing that we are new creatures that are not dictated by our past and trauma. If you are on the fence about joining a retreat, just do it. It is literally life changing.

I do not know where to begin or how to put into words of how much Serenity Retreat impacted my life and how happy I am that I booked this retreat. Like everyone who comes here, I have experienced some very hard things in my life that have impacted me deeply. I believe the Lord led me to this place all the way from Texas doing a simple google search - “Christian women’s trauma recovery”. It took me a week to book, but I knew I NEEDED to. Choosing to travel to a different state and stay in a house with absolutely nobody you know is very intimidating, but it is SO WORTH IT!! Serenity Retreats provided me an opportunity to share my pain, be validated and supported, be loved and known. On our retreat, the Holy Spirit was moving so strongly - we ALL decided to go to the ocean and get baptized, mine being my second time and feeling that I needed to! It was an amazing moment for all of us. POWERFUL. Between the women who came, the stunning house on the beach, the delicious food, the group therapy sessions, the worship evening, activities, location, to every little detail of decor and purpose… everything. EVERYTHING!! If you are looking for a place to begin your healing journey and be surrounded by incredible women who love the Lord, do not wait another day and book this retreat for yourself. Do this for yourself, it is worth the investment in every way! A BIG thank you to Mallory (the founder, and angel on earth), Alexa (the most amazing therapist and sweetest soul), Alissa (one word, JOY), and everyone else involved in our retreat. The way God has put you all together as a team is so evident!!! Thank you all SO much for who you are, Christ-centered and rare women. It’s YOU who made the experience what it was. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Signing up for Serenity Retreats was a leap of faith and well worth it! Mallory and her team were amazing and with us every step of the way. The guidance and care they took to ensure every need was met was humbling. The food was lovingly prepared and well thought out from all your favorite comforts to your 5 star restaurant quality meals. The kindness through the week that was shared with me made me believe again in humanity! You will come home from this retreat with new sister friends, a renewed faith in life and stillness and peace that is restored.

This retreat was the perfect setting to reset, recover and restore my mind, body and soul. Mallory and her team provided tender love and care for healing in the most beautiful and effective way possible with God as their guide. Their attention to every detail and need was beyond my expectations. Even our Chef poured her heart into everything she creatively prepared for us, which was superb!

What a wonder experience… Going in I wasn’t sure what to expect but by the end I felt a peace I hadn’t had in a long time. Attending this retreat was the best things I have ever done for myself. Absolutely everything was perfect… God’s presence was with me the whole time. I laughed, I cried, I healed and I met an amazing group of woman whom I am so grateful for. If you are on the fence, I want to encourage you to book the retreat… you are worth it! ❤️

This healing retreat was phenomenal! I felt pampered, loved and cared for. The staff went over and above in every aspect of the time spent. We laughed, we cried, we experienced a depth that brought release and healing in many ways! The food was exceptional! The accommodations and beach was just what I needed. I highly recommend this faith-based program.

Truly a life-changing experience. The luxurious accommodations, the five course meals, the beach location, it was like I stayed at the Four Seasons but better! Mallory and her incredible team thought of every detail. I formed new friendships, I filled my spiritual cup and I left with a new set of “tools” for how to move forward in my journey thanks to the incredible work done by Ana. I cannot say enough about this retreat! I pray for every women to have the opportunity to experience what these retreats have to offer! Mallory is doing incredible work.

Amazing experience! I attended a Serenity retreat October 27-30, 2022 and had an amazing experience! I signed up for the retreat with a broken heart and so much pain from an abusive relationship I ended. I met 9 lovely Christian women from all walks of life, all with unique issues seeking healing from traumatic life events. No one knew each other, yet within the first night the retreat is designed so that we easily connected and started bonding through our vulnerable stories. The Serenity staff all uniquely qualified to help us with their gifting. From simple yet luxurious accommodations to 5 course gourmet meals prepared on site, yoga/breathe work on the beach and breathtaking bonfires as the sun set, the experience left you pampered and well cared for. The spirit of God was working to heal hearts and lift us in His light through everyone during each group session. I learned to lament and the last evening we shared a prayerful worship session where I could finally, after months of agony, release my tears. Jesus precense was in that space comforting me, holding me in my pain. I experienced healing. I left the retreat with a new hope, a lighter heart and new friends. I truly felt seen, valued and loved. I highly recommend attending a Serenity retreat. You will be delighted by the support, comfort, care and love you will receive. Lori Beckman
