“Small is the gate & narrow the road that leads to life” Matt 7:13-14

Journey Retreats was birthed on the heels of one of the most tumultuous seasons of
Co-founder, El Davis’ life. The year 2018  was filled with dips, winding roads, stumbles, and falls but most importantly it was the catalyst for her gaining deeper respect and understanding for the journey we call Life. On the cusp of losing everything,  El soon realized there was an ache in her heart that no business, no relationship, no possession could fill. For two months she embarked on a biblical journey exploring the pivotal moments of our most beloved figures of the bible and uncovered the hidden principles and promises of God.

“Journey Retreats is my humble attempt to give away what God has so graciously given to me.“ 
– El Davis

The Visionary/ The Change Agent 

It's my assignment to restore vision, to plant seeds of transformation, and provide the tools to nurture change.

"Write the vision and make it plain." Habukkuk 2:2
The number one miracle Christ performs in the bible more than any other miracle is the restoration of sight. Knowing that I began thinking about how much God cares about our vision. I had to start asking myself the hard questions about the vision I had for my life and confront the truth that somewhere along the way between accumulating degrees and building businesses, I lost mine. Not my eyesight but my insight! I knew I wasn't operating in the truth God revealed to me.  In laboring to get my vision back, I looked around and saw that I wasn't alone. 


"Without vision, the people perish." Proverbs 29:18 
Baby, we need vision it's like water to our soul! And I decided to spend the rest of my life walking hand and hand with people as they journey to restore their vision, accomplish their purpose, and change their lives! I vowed to spend the rest of my life, giving God away.

The Architect/ The Kingdom Builder

My passion is wellness but my purpose is building. 

“The house which I am about to build will be great, for greater is our God than all the gods.”  2 Chronicles 2:5

While embarking on my passion for health and wellness I uncovered the common threads throughout my life that revealed my nature to  build. From the time I was a little girl building productions with  baby dolls for my family Christmas play to now building and curating experiences in travel for friends and clients, the act of building something has always found its way back to me.

“By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established.” Proverbs 24:3

Everyone has an experience and I believe that should speak to you! In building other people's dream, I abandoned my own house. In the midst of reconstructing my own life, I've uncovered my love of building experiences that help create the blueprint for others.

And sis, we will do it in ultimate style!
