Retreat Testimonials

"If you need a safe place to "just be," Pasture Experience is that place. Bekah is very gracious and offers an atmosphere that is so needed for women to come and be vulnerable about their journey. I loved being at Pasture and spending time with other ladies who share the same basic need: to be heard and known. I highly recommend it! - Beth, Tennessee

"From the moment I saw Bekah’s post on Instagram about Pasture, I felt God tugging on me. I had experienced a very hard year full of pain, uncertainty, and confusion. Attending Pasture was an out-of-the-box occurrence for me—traveling alone, staying alone, and sharing my Pasture journey with women I did not know. I can honestly say that God met me at Pasture. He knew exactly what I needed and who I needed. Each of the women at Pasture were at a different point in their Pasture journey which made the weekend even more beautiful. The deep connections and relationships forged through this weekend are relationships I will value forever. The healing I experienced through confession, truth-telling, crying, spending alone time with God, and hearing His voice has completely changed my life. I am forever grateful that Bekah facilitated such a conversation between God and I so He could heal my soul. Beyond all these amazing things, Bekah’s home-family- and husband’s cooking skills are out of this world! I would do another Pasture experience in a heartbeat!" - Jen, Texas

"My Pasture Experience far exceeded the expectations built up in my mind. I knew I was tired and in need of refreshment, but it was so much more! In a very loud and distracted world, we often fail to just BE. Listening is crucial for the health of our heart and in the sitting still and listening to others share as well as my own sharing, I awakened to the voice of my good Shepherd in new ways. Psalm 23 has an entirely new meaning and I believe with all my heart that Bekah Pogue has been called to this ministry for such a time as this! Our lives continue to become louder with distractions and it is crucial we submit this to the Father in order to maintain our spiritual health and wellness." - Kelli, Kentucky

"I loved meeting a new group of women. I think the connection of just being honest and open made the friendships seem easy. Pasture was an intimate, safe setting where you could be heard and known. I grew in our time together. I tried to let go of some of the self-imposed restrictions I had about my prayer life and embraced prayer as I felt it in my heart.  In return, I felt like I prayed more spontaneously and more genuinely.  I also focused on being a better listener because I felt the joy of the sweet gift of others listening to me." - Wendy, Tennessee

"It was wonderful. I’m so grateful. Bekah went above and beyond for all of us and it so obvious. Hospitality is truly her gift! What a joy to be able to be myself without pretense or expectation, knowing that exactly THAT was what was expected. So much the opposite in the real world. What a gift, one of so many." - Jennifer, Missouri

"Bekah was our key note speaker for our church’s women’s retreat this past winter. She was very professional and helpful as we planned and prepared for the retreat, making the process so smooth. While at the retreat, her messages were tender, relatable, and perfectly centered on the Trinity. When Bekah speaks, it’s as if you are having a conversation with a spiritual friend who so wisely engages you with the Lord in a tangible way. It was so refreshing to be lead through Psalms 23 in a way that allowed each woman to connect with scripture and what the Holy Spirit was speaking to her in that moment. I’ve not experienced a retreat where my heart and soul were so engaged with Jesus until the retreat with Bekah. I know many other women share the same sentiments and were truly blessed by Bekah and Pasture Experience." - Bailey, Colorado

"My Pasture experience was a gift and blessing. I loved it! It was a space to actually connect with God and myself after being in a season of disconnect and feeling discouraged and overwhelmed. Bekah and Pasture gave me the space, and ability to see how God was working in my life and what He is inviting me to. I will be forever grateful for the time of sitting in Psalm 23 under Bekah's gentle yet honest guidance. Bekah said something about "We have all we need, all else is frosting" and this has been ringing so true- what if I lived that way - it would be so changing, to actual believe all is provided for and to stop striving." - Chelsea, Indiana

"After attending a Pasture Experience retreat in 2019 at Bekah’s in Tennessee, I invited Bekah to come to our home in New Hampshire to facilitate a retreat here. My husband and I had just begun our care and retreat ministry called the Lodge Ministries, and the heartbeat of Pasture was exactly what we wanted people to experience at the Lodge.  We had 9 women at our first retreat here with Bekah!  I will never forget this sacred time where Holy Spirit met with us through storytelling, beautiful conversations, meals shared around the table, and new friendships. Pasture Experience at the Lodge was a sacred, marked moment in our ministry and has helped shape much of our vision and mission as we move forward. Some of the rest of the story is that Bekah continues to be my Spiritual Director, and a few months ago I completed my own training as a Spiritual Director. I am forever grateful for the Pasture Experience retreat, and for Bekah’s influence in my life and ministry." - Deb, New Hampshire, Founder of Lodge Ministries
