Women Holding Hands

“Let go and let God.” A scripturally sound concept that is often easier said than done. Often we find ourselves holding onto our problems, our sorrows and our hurts. We worry and agonize over them instead of letting God take them for us.  

Chuck Swindoll once said " Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it." There is a lot of truth to that statement and as Christians I would add it is 100% how we give it to God. 

We cannot change others. We cannot control others or the things that happen to us, but we can control how we react and how we let it go. Our broken human nature often seeks to  worry, but God clearly tells us not to do it. He wants us to embrace the truth that He WILL take care of our troubles, all we must do is be obedient and have faith while leaving them in His very capable hands. 

Let Go: Surrender and Let God Work is a retreat designed to help you "Let go and let God".


Join us September 24 -26. 2021 in the deep quiet of the Coteau du Missouri in our Hosmer, South Dakota sanctuary cottage and learn to let go!

Small Retreats =
Big Impact

The retreats at Sanctuary Cottage in Hosmer, SD are small for two reasons: capacity and deeper connection. We chose Hosmer, SD for its quiet small town nature. A silent prayer retreat is only as effective as the silence it provides and Hosmer's remote location provides the perfect silence needed to retreat with God. The church bells at noon add to the connection you feel with the Father as you pray and be still in His presence.


We currently accept 4 retreatants at a time. This is to provide a space of connection and also space to retreat quietly with minimal distraction.  

In a world where there is not much time and space for reflection, prayer and contemplation, we invite you to retreat with us at Sanctuary Cottage.  Retreating at Sanctuary Cottage is a time to be silent and open to an encounter with God in the interior and exterior silence.  Here we protect and respect your quiet time with God.


The silence of retreat is a gift we give ourselves and others who are with us. The primary purpose of a silent prayer retreat is to foster an atmosphere that allows for personal encounter with God.

Rachel C.

Jane is a ambassador and an artist for the Lord in every sense of the word. She runs after Him and seeks to be like Him. Jane offers all of herself, like our Father - she loves the lost, like our Father - and she creates the most beautiful pieces, just like our Father.
