A Gathering: Do You Want One?


My dear friend, Scabs, started hosting gatherings this past year called 'Camp Scabs,' which I find to be somewhat of a quirky and lovely title.

She has reached out to me on numerous occasions practically begging me to host such a gathering of my own for women in sex addiction.

What would such a gathering look like?

"They are so amazing and healing" she says, "you meet other people, reach out, get rid of shame, tell your stories, burn things, make paper crafts and bird houses out of Popsicle sticks.  There's camaraderie, friendship, support, love and you'll stay up all night giggling and crying. You'll learn something new, gain strength, lose fear, be brave and then you'll go home with the strength of your new friends at your back, cheering you on.  Camp is power."

Sounds aMaZiNg, yes?

A lovely weekend full of solitude, sharing, connecting, unifying, talking, discussing, honesty, tears and laughter.  On top of the emotional benefits, there would also be super yummy food and maybe even some shenanigans!

What else?  I'm not really sure.  I don't really want to get to completely planning it unless there is interest shown.

So I'm posing the question to you.  Would you come to such an event?

It would most likely be here in Utah, spots would be limited to about twenty, but if  there is a large turnout - I'd definitely plan more in the future.

Questions?  Comments?  Ideas?  Please share!

  1. Would I love to come? Yes. Would I realistically afford and make the travel arrangements? Likely, No. Hope that helps! :) I'll just gather up some papers and do my own crafting in heart.

Thank you for sharing a moment with me:-)

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
