Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord
    Proverbs 17:22 “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones.”

Do you need a good dose of laughter…A refreshing for your soul? Don’t miss this week-end to be renewed, encouraged, and fed with God’s precious Word! O Taste and See that the Lord is good…Space is limited so here’s the scoop!


When:  Date to be announced


Cost:  $89 per person (can send through paypal under or through the mail at Heart 2 Heart Ministries, P.O. Box 957, Cumming, GA  30028.)  Make checks payable to Heart 2 Heart. 

This includes the retreat sessions, three meals, (bring one potluck dish for us to share a meal along with your recipe), and two nights lodging at the beautiful mountain retreat home appropriately named Taste of Heaven (located10 miles NW of Blue Ridge, Ga) . This cabin has a breath-taking view of three states, Ga, Tn, NC. 

2012…new year, new beginning…It a time to surround ourselves with things that are wholesome and clean, then we can experience pure joy, the Jesus kind of joy!  We are what we eat…"Physically, Emotionally, and Spiritually." The books, newspapers, television and even the jokes that we hear and tell are all feeding into us. It all becomes part of our mental and spiritual diets. What are you eating? What is your “soul food” so far this year?

 There is an old Indian Proverb where a young brave asked his chief about the chief’s two dogs, he asked which one will become stronger and the chief replied, the one I feed the most. What affirmations are you feeding to yourself? Feed your soul and spirit the Word and what God says about you, then you will not only survive, but you will thrive.  Learning to be joyful “in” the circumstances, and giving thanks, not for it, but in it! Let’s learn not to take things for granted and embrace the season you are in.   Attitude is 99 % of how our life will be.

"Attitudes and how we perceive ourselves" in this world can give us cheer, or tear us down. Circumstances of life are really beyond our "total" control. --BUT--We don't have to eat (emotionally and physically) everything that comes our way. Learn to laugh at yourself and the world. Don't take life so seriously that you forget to enjoy the journey.


Your "cheerful attitude" can make a world of difference on the outcome of your circumstances, and make it easier to get through the hard times. Filling your mind and heart with "good clean laughter" is better than any medicine and a lot easier to swallow. Your cheerful attitude can also affect the way people feel when they are around you.


Everyone has to accept that laughter is the Best Medicine as it heals both our mind and body together.
What the Bible has said for thousands of years is now being proven in the Medical field…a merry heart doth good like medicine! Come join us and let’s make a joyful noise unto the Lord, especially during Hot Tub Time!

 Psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits.

Heart 2 Heart Men’s Ministry



If there ever was a time we needed “restoration” in our lives, it is NOW!  There is great hope found in the book of Nehemiah of that very outcome…a story of what can happen when one man receives “Vision” from the Heavenly Father, and acts in obedience to His word!  Nehemiah was a trustworthy man holding great responsibility as the cupbearer to King Artaxerxes.  He asks for permission to return to his homeland and finds favor with the King returning to Jerusalem. He demonstrates courage, compassion for the oppressed, integrity, godliness, and selflessness.  He was dedicated to God’s work, was an encourager, a man of prayer, and gives all credit and glory to God!  Men, it is time we exhibit those characteristics and rebuild the walls of our “homes”, for nothing is impossible for those who believe!

This week-end, we will visit four main areas of restoration… Return, Rebuild, Revive, Reform…we will look at Nehemiah’s life and relate it to ourselves in rebuilding the walls of our homes, taking back what the enemy has tried to destroy.  Just as the walls of Jerusalem had been broken down and they were vulnerable to their enemies, so have our walls been compromised…it’s time to rebuild and take back what the enemy has tried to steal from our families.  As husbands and fathers we have been given the responsibility to rebuild our walls!  Need encouragement and the tools to rebuild…then this is the place to be…don’t miss an opportunity to be strengthened for the “Restoration” you need in your lives!

Here’s the scoop:  

When:  Date to be Announced        

Where: A Taste of Heaven (in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, Mineral Bluff, Ga.

 “Life’s a Hoot…that’s why we need our Hooter Sisters!”

Ps. 100:1-2 “Shout joyfully to the lord, all the earth. Serve the LORD with Gladness: come before Him with joyful singing”

Have you ever heard someone say...that's a hoot!  It is an expression I have used for many years, and as a friend and I were talking one day, she said that very thing, "Judy, that's a hoot" and I said to her, "That's my phrase"...thus we named ourselves "the Hooter Sisters".  We have had more laughs than I can can count, and we want to share that joy with you.  Every week God places women in my life who have lost their joy and peace due to life circumstances.  Our desire is to help you find your joy again, put it in a safe spot (called your heart), and teach God's life changing word about how to hold on to your joy and peace...for your very life depends upon it.  Life will throw you lemons, but you can make lemonade, with God's help...and the help of your Hooter sisters!

When:  Next date to be announced (Friday from 6 p.m. – Sunday at 8:30 a.m.)

Where: Hooterville…otherwise known as Blue Ridge, Georgia

Cost: $125 (includes 2 nights lodging, 4 meals, entertainment and surprises)

Dress: casual…no girdles allowed…just come  as you are and let it all hang out…I promise, I am leaving mine at home...this time!


  Sweet sisters…when was the last time you had a good laugh…I mean a real belly laugh…laughter is internal jogging…my  kind of exercise!  Well, this is the week-end for you…get your joy tank filled to the brim, and over-flowing with fun, food, and fellowship…(food for the soul…God’s precious Word)  need a break from the norm…

Come all ye who are weary!

This beautiful Blue Ridge cabin is the perfect setting for the renewal of your spirit and refreshing for your soul.  

Teachings will include:

  *Where, oh where has my joy gone, oh where oh where can it be?

                         *Give me a full tank of joy, please…I think I’m gonna need it for the ride of my life!

                                               *Relationships: Joy Fillers or Joy Stealers

                                                *Emotions:  the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

These are just some ideas of the wonderful things ahead at the retreat…get your registration in soon…space is limited!  We have some special guests who will be at Hooterville (I mean Blue Ridge), and you do not want to miss a moment!  Come early and enjoy this quaint little town with its beautiful scenery, antique stores and shop on the square.
