The community of Delight and Be continually blows me away with the way each girl loves and is so supportive of one another, being willing to share struggles and show that none of us has it all together. There was a lot of time I spent at this retreat discovering more of the tender loving side of our Daddy God. I got to know more about what it is like to have a loving and intimate relationship with my Heavenly Father alongside my sisters in Christ, and my heart is still full thinking about what God did in our lives.
I feel so blessed! I have only been apart of Delight for a year but have seen so many changes in the ladies who are apart of this community! Going to a place where you know almost no one is a scary thing but as soon as I walked through the doors I felt like I was coming home to 30 beautiful sisters who loved me so dearly and wanted to see my faith in Jesus grow! I came home from the retreat filled and refreshed in faith and in love. I had so many prayers answered and so many new sisterships made that are LASTING. God gives us things we need and this past year God knew I needed more sisters in Christ.
Going to the Delight retreat was such a huge blessing to me. It made me realize just what true community is all about. The whole retreat just painted a perfect picture of the body of Christ. All coming together; from different states, different seasons of life...All for the same purpose - To bring Him honor. To learn more about Him, and who He's created us to be, and to build relationships with some absolutely amazing people. I have no doubt that the relationships formed in those beautiful mountains of Washington, will be ones that I will treasure for years to come.
First and foremost, I truly deeply love my Jesus. After that, I'm a wife to an amazing husband of 26 years, momma to 4 beautiful children, and Mimi to Gideon, Niyah, and Boaz! I am thankful to have one son at home because when the house isn't full of Delight girls, it is full of his crazy guy friends. Our house is never dull or quiet!
My heart is for YOU. To see young women walk in freedom, knowing that their Heavenly Father treasures them. I saw God bring healing into my life through the gift of photography, and over the years I have watched young women experience the same through cooking, singing, writing, designing and taking pictures! One of my greatest passions in life is seeing young women finding the gifts God's blessed them with and watching them use their talents to bring Him glory! I can't wait to meet you, hear your heart and to give you a great big hug!
I'm Brandy, an entrepreneur and dreamer. I own a portrait studio and I am a wellness advocate running an essential oils business. I live on a farm in Middle Tennessee with my wonderful husband and our cat - Miss Cleo. I love Jesus and connecting with people over coffee and sweet treats. Being in the kitchen, cooking and cultivating a community around the dinner table is my jam. I am not afraid to 'tell is like it is' and I crave authentic conversations... the "throw your hair up in a messy bun, put on leggings and a sweater, grab a cup of coffee and get comfy on the couch cause we're gonna be here for as long as it takes" kind of conversations. My heart is to know your heart! Ps. Messy buns are life!

Hi girls! I'm Caryn (said like "car-in-the-garage"). I’m 31, and live in a small town outside Vancouver, Washington. I was a PK (pastor's kid) and raised in a very musical family! For that I have my voice and guitar skills to be thankful for! I'm a Singer-Songwriter by trade and worshipper by design. I do music full-time, traveling as an itinerant worship leader, Performing artist and teach lessons. I've been married 4 years to a former Marine, business-owner, Texan who is the BEST gift God has ever given me! We have a call on our lives to church plant and equip the Body with tools for leadership and worship! I LOVE hand-written cards, the outdoors, drinking coffee, reading, running, peanut butter & chocolate, candles (I know - TOXIC) and laughing, it's my favorite! I'm an introvert and prefer one-on-one, face to face interaction. Delight is something I wish I would've had when I was a teenager and young adult. Blessed to be a leader and apart of this incredible ministry!
Megan is a full-time wedding photographer and private photo editor living in the DC metro area. She married her high school sweetheart, Justin, on a rainy spring day in 2016 and is head-over-heels for her husband and their newlywed life. She graduated from George Mason University with her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship. Her studies also included Old Testament & New Testament Survey, Scriptural Interpretation, and Medieval History. She loves traveling (London being a particular favorite of hers), exploring books on theoretical physics, and ordering her macchiatos with extra caramel. Growing up in a Christian home and school, learning about Jesus, His love, all-surrounding peace, and ultimate plan for her life has always been at the forefront of her heart and mind. The Delight retreat Megan attended four years ago had a life-changing impact on her, and she can’t wait to meet all of the amazing attendees and leaders this year as we dive into the theme of CHOICE.
I'm Stephanie, a photographer, artist, writer, and wife. I live in Northwest Arkansas with my husband, Lucas, and the softest cat in the world, Josie. My heart is to encourage you to live a life that's meaningful and full; to slow down and savor this one and only incredible life you've been given. I believe in cherishing what matters most - which I believe ultimately is Jesus. I'm passionate about living life for His flory, and my desire is for you to experience true joy that only comes from the gospel. I'm 100% introvert and I love snuggling up in front of a cozy fire with a cup of coffee that's mostly sugar, and a good conversation. A conversation that's deep and real and sparks something deep inside of you. I can't wait to chat with you soon!
