What attendees have said about the weekend:


Patsy says her word is “eclectic”–but I found her weekend to be “electric” since it recharged my batteries! The warmth of Patsy’s heartfelt hospitality infused a well-paced and varied schedule.  Hearts were nurtured as this petite dynamo generously shared her faith, her wisdom, her home, her friends, and her creative journey. If you’re needing to catch your breath and catch a bigger vision for your life–don’t miss this rare opportunity to ‘sit a spell’ with Patsy.”  Sandy S. from Minnesota

“Spending a weekend with Patsy Clairmont was such a thrill! We had the pure pleasure of peeking into her life (and her home!).  The intentional time she invested, showing us the things that encourage and influence her personal journey with Jesus were and expected treasure.”  Misty L from Michigan

“Up close and personal. Fun and reflective. Restorative and directive. “On the Porch with Patsy” delighted my heart, fed my soul, and lifted my spirit. And I can’t wait to return with my sisters.” Mona H from Arizona
