Sheri L. Dew:

"There is a direct relationship between how we feel about Jesus Christ and how we see ourselves.


We cannot increase our devotion to the Savior without also obtaining a greater sense of purpose, identity, and conviction."

As I Am™ is a healing retreat, presented by Discover Identity™ and its Men of Good Will™. It is designed for men familiar with LDS culture or who have some type of LDS experience. It is based on the teachings and example of Jesus Christ, promoting identity, fraternity, and a purposeful life vision. 

This retreat was created and is presented by a group of men (The Men of Good Will™) with many years of experience facilitating experiential retreats and groups; as well as coaching individual men in growth and healing. Open to any man age 18 and older with an LDS connection, regardless of his current relationship with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, seeking to discover and create a stronger sense of self by facing his obstacles, to be the man he and God envision.  

As I Am™, is different from other healing programs that often begin by asking “What’s wrong with you?” Instead, at As I Am™ we begin with “What’s right about you and what is your vision of the future?" From that starting point we explore the obstacles that get in the way of achieving your vision and ways of growing beyond your obstacles; frequently referencing the example and teachings of Jesus Christ as an important part of any solution. 

This retreat is more than an instructional conference, it is an experiential program, with facilitated activities designed to help you safely and actively explore your conscious and unconscious blocks, gaining awareness of your beliefs, emotions, and behaviors along the way. You will be provided with tools to make the retreat experience a reality in your daily life, including greater authenticity, and freedom from behaviors and beliefs that previously held you back from achieving your goals. 

Topics Covered at the Retreat

Identity

Above all, this retreat is about identity. We invite you to go beneath labels,

titles, roles, accomplishments, and shame, and ask,

“Who am I?" 

“Who am I really?”

After learning tools, identifying and clearing away obstacles and forming answers to that question, you are encouraged to look at your relationships. You will learn to relate intimately, and clearly with others by asking,

“Who are you?”

Finally, we challenge you to envision your identity in the community, by asking,

“Who am I as part of God’s creation?” 

Testimonials

Aaron

The retreat was a very pivotal moment in my life. It was the closest that I've felt to Christ. It helped me start on the path of healing my relationship with myself and with those around me...

 

I've been able to gain better confidence in myself and my identity as a Son of God...


Don't be afraid to attend the retreat even if it seems scary, it will be more than worth it!!

Doug

This retreat changed me. What happened on the retreat was even more than I could have hoped for...

 

I made more progress in those couple of days than I had in 9 years.

I feel reborn, rejuvenated, and recommitted to my desire to love and follow and serve God and Christ.

Bill

This was a life changing and spiritual experience for me...

It was a memorable experience, a retreat that is unique, uplifting and rewarding.

I gained a new understanding of masculinity by following Christ's teachings and I encourage all to look and step into a new way of healing. Your reward will be greater than your investment.
