Join us at Sugar Pine Christian Camps Women’s Retreats for a purposeful time of relaxing, friendship, and opportunity to draw closer to the Lord.  We will have plenty of activities from a soothing massage, beautiful hiking trails, exciting High-Adventure Ropes Course, delicious meals, fulfilling chapel and worship times and so much more. Register today and experience a weekend with purpose for YOURSELF!


Meet our Women’s Retreats Speaker/Worship Leader “Jill Miller”

Jill has a zest for life that is contagious! With humor and honesty, she shares her personal struggles and how God showed up in the midst of them. Through her songwriting, speaking and writing, she is simply a friend telling her story, hoping it will touch your heart, encourage you in your struggles and inspire you to keep reaching for your full potential. Her spiritual insights are relatable, insightful, and can be practically applied to your life.

Jill is a certified speaker, coach and teacher with the John Maxwell Team and has written the first ever theme song for the John Maxwell Team.

Jill also writes a weekly blog and has written her first book, “Grace Finds Wings – A Journey in Song.” In her book, Jill shares the stories behind the songs on her CD, “Grace Finds Wings,” and finds ways to touch your heart and help you discover grace in things like infertility, adoption, divorce, financial struggles, marital infidelity and loss. 

Jill and her husband, John, have four grown sons and live in the cornfields of Iowa with their two male rescue dogs. Jill is anxiously waiting for some daughters-in-law and grand-babies so she can get a little estrogen in her family!
