After four successful annual events, Beautifully Flawed has become Friends of Bethany’s most established program. A retreat designed for young women ages 14-25 who have experienced the loss of at least one limb, the purpose of Beautifully Flawed is three-fold: evangelistic, inspirational and encouraging, and practical. It’s also full of fun and creating lifelong friendships! We bring girls together who have experienced something traumatic and let them know that they’re not alone, and that there is a God who loves them and sees them as beautiful.
Past guest speakers include Bethany Hamilton, Lauren Scruggs-Kennedy, Carley Cottingham, and Sarah Hill. The Retreat also includes experts offering practical health and wellness tips that specifically account for limb differences. Dustin Dillberg of Pain Free Kauai, Bethany’s trainer and co-author of her recent book Body and Soul, assists attendees with postural training, to keep the girl’s spines aligned as their bodies compensate for limb loss. In past years, we’ve had the honor to work with Walking On Water, an organization based in Carlsbad, California, who co-hosts surf lessons for the attendees.
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our fifth annual Beautifully Flawed retreat this October 9-12 in Del Mar, CA. With limited space available be sure to submit your application if you qualify between 14-25 years of age and have loss of at least one limb.
Retreat Cost: $750 which will cover 3 nights lodging, all meals included, and transportation to/from San Diego airport. * This cost does not include airfare.
We cannot put on this event without the love, prayer and financial support of caring people like you. We are grateful to the George and Betty Harbaugh Foundation for partnering with us on the 2017 Beautifully Flawed Retreat. Join them in sponsoring this life changing retreat:
