The definition of Quest is to search or seek for; pursue as if on a treasure hunt!
A Woman’s Quest is a personal encounter and adventure with God! The Vision of A Woman’s Quest is to inspire hope, restoration and dream catching for women in various seasons of life through a variety of unique retreat adventures!
“On the first day, God did a whole new thing. He made something out of nothing. Where there was a void, He filled it. Where there was no substance or form, He created shapes, color and reality—with deep beauty. And even after one day, one evening and one morning of Genesis moments, the world was changed forever!”
-Jill Briscoe, Barefoot In My Heart
Because it’s TIME!
Because You are ready to experience life differently.
You are ready to experience God’s Word differently.
You are ready for a change of pace from the same spiritual hoops you have jumped through year after year.
You are ready to hear God’s voice for yourself.
You are ready for a change of course, change of results or change of scenery!
You are ready for an adventure of faith!
There comes a time in the life of every woman when what we have always done to inspire our faith journey, the conferences we have attended, the amazing teachers we have learned from, the Bible study systems we have used for so many years need a breath of fresh air. Sometimes this yearning is sparked by a recent loss or life transition. Sometimes it is simply a feeling of dissatisfaction or maybe a feeling of lost inspiration for God’s Word. As women, the demands of life and the daily requirements placed upon us to meet the needs of those we love shift us out of balance and create a feeling of loneliness or disconnect smack in the middle of the madness.
Madeleine L ‘Engle compared prayer and meditation to planting seeds in the ground: “They go down in silence and they stay in silence and in the dark. Then, a few little green shoots come up. It is the same way with us spiritually, what we put down before the Lord, in the quiet places of our soul, will without quest, begin to sprout life!”
A Woman’s Quest offers 2 UNIQUE QUEST ADVENTURES!!
#1–REST QUEST Retreat (4 per year)
Each QUEST focuses on a unique theme designed to offer women a place of restoration, renewal and revival of her hopes, dreams and the longing of her heart!
Other than an occasional larger event these retreats and masterminds are limited to 12 women.
Every QUEST is designed to provide women with a place to get away alone or with a close friend to experience an encounter and adventure with God! At every QUEST she will find a place of rest, pampering and someone else to do all the work!
#2–Passion QUEST Mastermind Group (Monthly January–December)
BOTH are limited to no more than 12 women each!
Here is what REST QUEST is all about!
You WILL Find Rest!
The primary activity of a REST QUEST is–get ready—REST! Rest in God! Rest in prayer! Rest in worship! Rest in pampering! Rest in sharing!
At one of her “Unique Boutique Retreats” Hostess Pat Layton invites you to join a small group of women for a time “set apart” for pampering, prayer and a bit of fresh focus. Each retreat offers a strategic theme that always includes a MATCHLESS ENCOUNTER with The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit!
THE KEY ACTIVITY of a REST QUEST is experiencing the ancient pattern of LECTIO DIVINA which simply means reading and resting in God’s good WORD! This is a beautiful method of taking a portion of scripture and allow God to press it deep into your heart through prayer, journaling, art, creativity and a sweet encounter with nature and the beautify of God’s creation.
We offer a variety of QUEST seasonal adventures each year set amongst…..
Still quiet lakes.
All from a rocking chair, hammock or stretched out blanket!
A Woman’s Quest is designed to offer you a personal encounter with Jesus and a chance for you to go directly to YOUR SOURCE for some fresh found Peace, Purpose and Passion!
Here is what you will find here:

What you WILL NOT find at A Woman’s Quest Retreat!
You will not find a 3-4 session teaching event where you simply sit and receive someone else’s biblical knowledge and teaching. As powerful as those events are, they are not always what we need.
A Woman’s Quest, although facilitated by Pat and her team of servant leaders, is strategically designed as a time of shared teaching, learning, offering of gifts and talents, giving, receiving, blessing and being blessed!
We believe that God has deposited an anointing into every woman, that He speaks to each of us personally and intimately and that gift MUST BE unwrapped and shared in community.
Bible conferences, biblically sound teaching, exhortation and organized studies are CRITICAL to the growth and accountability of every believer. At the same time it is EQUALLY critical, if not more so, for every CALLED woman of God to be challenged, inspired and encouraged to listen for that “still small voice of God” for herself, her family and her ministry.
Far too often we leave fabulous conferences filled with spirit filled teaching that fills our notebooks but do not translate into our everyday life. A Woman’s’ Quest is a UNIQUE (not your normal retreat experience) BOUTIQUE (only for small groups of women) RETREAT (an intimate encounter with Jesus)

EVERY QUEST EVENT HAS RECEIVED 100% POSITIVE FEEDBACK! 100%!!
I had so many favorite parts of this event from the idyllic pastoral setting, to the camaraderie of the group, to the worship times, to the creative process of my QUEST guide, to the times of sharing. Still, the most favorite part is that you allowed space and time for God to speak and move. The time I spent with The Lord during those 2 days was invaluable and I came away with some clear direction and next steps. I appreciate the way you recognized the crux of the conference was to hear from God, even if it felt a little awkward at first. Once I had permission to do that, I opened myself up to the possibility of HIM and that HE wanted to speak to me. I loved every part of my QUEST.” -June Rest Quest Attendee
PASSION QUEST MASTERMIND—STARTING JANUARY 2018
Passion Quest is a Coterie Mastermind Experience.
The definition of Coterie is a small group of people with shared interest or tastes, especially one that is exclusive of other people (i.e. a closed, private group)
Do you dream of writing a book? Starting a ministry? Building a business? Expanding a speaking ministry? FINDING your dream? This could be the “Dream Design” Mastermind for You!
Passion Quest is a place for adventure and embrace of the vision, dream, idea, business, ministry, calling God has placed on your life for the purpose of clarity and strategic planning for the coming year!
LIMITED TO 12 Women!
After kicking off with an Annual January Event Pat will lead the way for a small group of women to take a ONE YEAR QUEST ADVENTURE together. After the kickoff gathering meetings will be held via group ZOOM calls once a month as well as a sharing monthly one-one with each woman.
Together the group will work through the steps to conceptualize, strategize, accomplish, and celebrate a specific QUEST goal!
This Mastermind experience is for the woman who is open to adventure and willing to take a risk.
“The Bible is not only a book which was once spoken, but a book which is now speaking….If you would follow on to know the Lord, come at once to the open Bible expecting it to speak to you.”
