Speaker: Bonnie thomas

Bonnie Thomas has made Estes Park and Ravencrest Chalet her home for over 30 years. Mentor of women, teacher, encourager, serving alongside her husband in the International Ministry of Torchbearers, her joy is to share the Word of God in a practical way helping women to simply walk with Jesus through the joys and sorrows of life.





REfresh THEME: "choose joy."

Where do we find JOY that lifts us above our circumstances, that enables us to have deep relationships with difficult people, that overcomes our failure to be what we should be, that gives us peace in the valley?  We need to regularly return to the secret of joy found in this most-loved book of Philippians.  Whenever I am struggling, I always go back there and sit at Paul’s feet, shackled to prison guards.  I come away a different person!  

It has been my privilege to lead this ministry at Ravencrest for 35 years.  As I step down, I would love to have you join me and our beloved Ella as we worship and celebrate the goodness we have known in Jesus Christ.

Refresh Experiences:

"Each year I eagerly look forward to Women's Week at Ravencrest. Located in God's beautiful creation -- the Rocky Mountains -- Ravencrest provides a glorious week of learning from lectures by an outstanding staff and hearing the truth of God's Word. Women's Week is a refreshing and renewing conference that offers quiet time to be with God plus activities of every sort. There is a Christian fellowship and love that shines from God through the Ravencrest staff. Thank you for opening the Chalet to us each year."
