Online Retreat with Colette Lafia


Comfort and joy are powerful pathways to awakening God's love in our lives and in the lives of others. Through the channels of comfort, we touch the presence of the Spirit within us and around us, and discover God's great joy. Living Comfort, Living Joy is a 21-day spiritual journey that will fill you with tender-hearted compassion, reassurance, encouragement, mercy, and the healing presence of love. It is also a time to renew yourself with deep and nourishing self-care.
