Founder of Restore Moms Retreat

Lisa Sanford was worshiping at church one Sunday, standing next to her husband Steven (whose arm she likes to feel around her as she leans in to God) when she heard a voice. She says the voice wasn’t audible. But it was so clear. God asked her to start a women’s retreat specifically for moms.

“Really, God?” Lisa questioned at first. “I’ve never been to a moms’ retreat, so how could I ever build one?”

But Lisa listened and began doing the legwork, the research, and the networking, all while letting the Holy Spirit lead. You see, she knew how important this task of building a place for rest for weary moms was because after the birth of her second son, she needed rest, she needed restoration. Restore Moms Retreat began to take shape in her heart. 

Restore Moms Retreat was built out of Lisa’s obedience to a God who was there for her when she reached her darkest hours in the grips of postpartum depression. Lisa knows what it means to feel tired and lost and hopeless, and with Restore, she seeks to show women how God sees all they do, from diaper changing to kissing boo-boos, from sleepless nights to mountains of laundry. She wants mothers to remember that they are first and foremost daughters, and that their Father wants to take care of them.

Jesus tells us,

“‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.’” Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT).

That’s the essence of Restore. Letting moms rest in Jesus.

A New Beginning to Restore Mom’s

Restore launched last year at Five Star Retreat outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Moms cozied up in a lodge, around a fire and learned about their identity in Christ. They made friends, ate yummy meals together, and were taken care of instead of taking care of everyone else.

One attendee of last year’s retreat, Christy Bates, was forever changed by Restore,

“I was dealing with some hard family situations, when I was invited to go on the Restore Moms Retreat,” says Christy. “I was astounded at the deep connections that I made with other Christian moms, just talking about our struggles. We understood each other quickly and filled each other with Godly encouragement.”

Christy continues,

“The speakers gave us food for thought about our prayerful and spiritual journeys. I had no idea that the chance to put myself first for a weekend to really focus on my life was exactly what God wanted for me. The way He showed me how to be more purposeful and intentional, was by not forgetting myself. Each woman I talked to felt they, too, were there for whatever God wanted to give them, and we were sometimes surprised with what we learned. I will never forget the women I shared that weekend with, and that was all because of Lisa and her group at Restore. They gave us the opportunity to really focus on what God wanted from us.” 

Restore will hold its second annual retreat on April 20-22 outside of Nashville, Tennessee, and is so excited to welcome Sue Detweiler to be a key note speaker. Sue is a best-selling author of 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom and founder of ChristianMomTalk which gives daily encouragement to moms.  Registration deadline is approaching.Visit for all the details.
