About this retreat

Every mom knows there is a special place in her heart for her son, which in turn nurtures his heart as he matures. Have you wanted to give your son one-on-one time, but sleeping in a tent isn’t your top choice? Are you looking to be encouraged to shepherd his heart before he grows up, altogether too quickly?

The Mother & Son Retreat at Forest Home is the perfect setting for strengthening that unique bond. Moms and their sons ages 5 to 18 will have an unforgettable weekend as they worship, hear biblical teaching, and forge new adventures together with our state-of-the-art recreation options. (Are you up for the Zipline, Mom?) Every experience throughout the weekend is designed to cultivate healthy relationships and create memories that will stand the test of time.

A unique feature that distinguishes Forest Home is our all-inclusive rate packages, which means you won’t pay extra for meals, meeting space, and recreation.

Speaker: Natasha Crain

Worship: Rebecca Boganwright

Speaker: Natasha Crain

Natasha Crain is a national speaker, author, and blogger who is passionate about equipping Christian parents to raise their kids with an understanding of how to make a case for and defend their faith in an increasingly secular world. She is the author of two apologetics books for parents—Talking with Your Kids about God and Keeping Your Kids on God’s Side—and is currently writing her third.

Natasha discovered the importance of apologetics after starting the blog Christian Mom Thoughts in 2011 to share ideas for building a Christ-centered home with other parents. As her blog grew in popularity, she started receiving a constant stream of comments from skeptics challenging the truth of Christianity—challenges she realized she couldn’t answer. Natasha set off on an intense reading journey, earned a certificate in Christian apologetics from Biola University, and shifted her blog’s focus to equipping other Christian parents with the same knowledge. Today her blog attracts more than 25,000 readers each month.

Natasha’s writing has been featured in Focus on the Family Magazine and the Christian Research Journal, and she’s been interviewed on radio shows across the country. She has an MBA from UCLA and a certificate in Christian apologetics from Biola University. A former marketing executive and adjunct professor, Natasha lives in Southern California with her husband and three children. She writes at www.natashacrain.com.
