girltime Retreat Cancún!
SAVE THE DATE MAY 16 - 20, 2019
Join us in beautiful Cancún, Mexico for a retreat like no other: 5 full days + 4 full nights of life-changing workshops, transformational keynotes, and breakout sessions designed exclusively for the modern Christian woman.
This retreat is 100% all-inclusive. Just register, pack, grab your passport, and show up at your local airport. We'll take care of the rest!
Our mission is to create a space to unwind, recharge, and connect with God in an atmosphere of sisterhood and luxurious pampering (just like us girls like it!).
“The truth is the struggle is apart of the story, but even the struggle is saturated in God’s grace.”
Hey there! I’m Kerry, your GIRLtime Cancún host and your “always speak the truth in love...even when you don’t want to hear it, because I need you to get it all-the-way together” friend :)
Everyday I help women identify + walk in purpose and grow in grace.
I LOVE Jesus and I have a passion for ministry and travel. Since 2016, I’ve taken groups of women to 17 cities in 5 countries through our GIRLtime Conferences and Retreats. From indoor skydiving in Chicago to lounging on the beautiful white sands in Montego Bay, Jamaica. We’ve also served women and children in homeless shelters and consistently donated a portion of our retreat proceeds to organizations who are determined to impact this world. GIRLtime is a much deserved break where God just shows up and always shows out – reminding each of us that He is God and we are His beloved daughters.
I began hosting GIRLtime Retreats because just like you, I struggled with wearing all my many 'hats'; taking care of everyone and everything else, leaving me stretched and tired.
I needed time to disconnect from the busyness of my everyday routine and have dedicated “me” time, where I could relax, rejuvenate, and spend some quiet time with God. I noticed my girlfriends were in the struggle, too. So we hopped on a plane.
Since then, every retreat has refreshed and empowered us to tackle whatever’s next, knowing that every moment – the good and the not so good – presents us with opportunities to recognize Grace In Real Life time.
We have SO MANY exciting things planned for our trip to Cancún! Our ministry focus will be exploring how you have already been graced by God to face and conquer every obstacle. All of our sessions will be designed to help you uncover your God-given superpowers and go back home equipped to go-for-broke when it comes to your commitment to believing God’s promises concerning every area of your life. You’re graced for this! And I look forward to meeting and serving you soon at GIRLtime Cancún.

The GIRLtime retreats have cut open my desire for travel! Let’s just say that I have been on more than a few lol because they are all different lessons, people, and locations. Along with loving to travel with the ladies, it’s one of the best environments I’ve experienced to make friends with complete strangers. It’s like Kerry builds love into these GIRLtime retreats, and with each trip it really just gets better and better.
Why should you attend GIRLtime?
This is the one single retreat that will not only give you a lifetime of memories, but a lifetime of spiritual tools and teachings that you can use every day to transform your life through the power of God and His word.
Plus, you’ll most likely also make friends for life who will always be there to love and support you, no matter what curveballs life may throw your way.
We’ve been to over 17 cities & 5 countries together and each trip cements bonds that last long after the trip is over.
The retreat will be an intimate time for you to grow spiritually, build relationships, share your journey, be encouraged and equipped with the word of God and, most importantly, connect with your Heavenly Father.

Strict No Judgement Zone
There is only one rule for GIRLtime:
What is shared here, stays here.
The beauty of our retreat is the open atmosphere where women can share freely with their sisters in Christ, without fear of criticism. Everything we do and say will be communicated in love and according to biblical principles.
+ Can I bring my spouse, children, or family?
We love the little ones and family! However, we believe that you are deserving of spending 5 days focused completely on you and your spiritual growth! Because of this, only registered participating women are allowed during our event.
+ Do I have to stay at the resort?
Yes, the full experience includes the full accommodations and cannot be removed. We don’t want you to miss out on all the spontaneous moments we have planned before the sun comes up or once it goes down at night.
+ Who will I room with?
Bring a friend and you can room together! Just be sure to include each other’s names on your registration, and we’ll match you up. Coming alone? Don’t fret. We’ll choose a roommate for you, based on your preferences, to the best of our ability. We'll also let you know who they are in advance.
+ Do I have to have a shared room?
All accommodations are shared rooms to enhance the experience. When registering, you have the option to include the name of a preferred roommate if you have a friend or family member attending. If not, you will be matched up with a roommate and introduced to each other several weeks prior to the trip. Each suite will be the home of two women and each woman will have their own, luxurious queen-sized bed.
+ What kind of women will attend the retreat?
The majority of the retreat attendees in the past have ranged in age from mid 20s to mid 50s. Some are married with families, some are single and may or may not be preparing for marriage, some are employed, some are pursuing passion, but everyone is there to deepen their relationship with God and build friendships with similar women.
We welcome women of all ages and backgrounds! Please note that this retreat is exclusive to women and you must be 21 years of age or older to attend.
+ I’m afraid I won’t know anyone, will I be okay?
Yes! You’ll even be paired up with someone before the retreat so you can get to know each other in advance. As the saying goes, “a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet!” We really believe you are going to go home with a lot of new friendships! Actually, Kerry met some of her closest friends during these retreats.
+ I've only just started or recently recommitted my relationship with God. Can I still attend?
First off, congratulations!!! Choosing Jesus is literally the best decision you will ever make. whether you have been a Christian for 20 years, 20 days, or 20 minutes, everyone needs a time of withdrawal to grow in their faith. Women who are serious about growing their faith in every area of their lives are the ones that will see the biggest results from the retreat experience.
+ I have another engagement and can’t make it to this retreat. When will the next one be?
We are currently planning the retreat schedule for 2019. Based on past response, we will sell out fast! You’ll want to sign up for our waiting list so you’ll be the first to know about our future plans.
+ Do I need a passport to travel to the retreat?
Yes, you will need a valid passport to travel to and from the retreat destination. If you are a permanent resident, you will need to travel with your US Greencard.
If you will be visiting the retreat from a country other than the United States, please contact your consulate to determine the specific travel requirements for Mexico.
+ What if I have physical limitations?
Our resort venue has thought of everything when it comes to accommodating people with physical ailments and/or limitations. The resort is also completely wheelchair accessible. In every place that there are stairs, there are also escalators, and elevators. We want you to feel at home and at ease during the retreat and the last thing we want is for you to feel overwhelmed in moving from each session. If there is a specific request, please let us know and we will do our best to make sure you are completely comfortable.
+ What if I have a dietary need?
Just let us know in advance when registering and we’ll be happy to accommodate you! Our venue is able to accommodate most common food allergies or dietary preferences.
+ How do I get to the resort?
Your registration includes round-trip transportation to/from the resort! However, if you choose to arrive and/or depart outside of the times specified, you will need to make your own transportation arrangements.
+ How can I apply to be a speaker or workshop facilitator?
We are always prayerfully considering ways to grow and serve the women who attend our conferences and retreats. We accept speaker submissions during our open call periods. You may also send an email through our website with your proposal.
+ What is your refund policy?
Due to the nature of this intimate event, details are planned and personalized far in advance for each of our guests, so all deposits and payments are 100% non-refundable and non-transferable. You can read more about our refund policy at www.alwaysgirltime.com/refund
+ Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, we have a monthly option for registrants who book by February 28th and a bi-weekly option for those who book after. You will be able to select which option on the checkout page. We will keep a credit card on file that will automatically withdraw payments on set dates, until your balance is paid in full (which must be completed prior to arrival).
Please note, payment plan installments that are more than 3 days past due will forfeit registration and your space will be sold.
+ What if I register, but can no longer attend? Can I transfer my space to someone else?
The moment you register, our team gets to work on all of the personalized details for your welcome and surprise retreat gifts. Since every retreat is curated just for you, we are unable to transfer your space to someone else. We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance that offers cancellation for any reason.
+ This is a large investment for me and I’m concerned about taking the leap.
We firmly believe the content, experience, and worship sessions will more than meet – and will exceed – the investment of your registration. Be sure to read the testimonials from past attendees who share how the benefits of growing in their faith far exceeded the investment.
Lastly, you should know this is not our first retreat or curated travel experience. You can count on professionalism and a well-managed, attention-to-detail retreat experience for yourself as an attendee!
You deserve some GIRLtime.
It’s time for you to surround yourself with like-minded, authentic Christian women who know the struggle of balancing personal and professional priorities while trying not to neglect their faith.
Take this time to meet new friends, learn new spiritual strategies and get to work implementing the tools that will help you grow your faith and your life according to God’s purpose and will.
You will leave ready to passionately serve God, your family, and yourself in every season of your life. You’ll also be re-energized with a clear understanding that you are far more capable than you know.
We look forward to seeing you at GIRLtime Cancun.
