“(Replenish creates) a space where women can be reminded to take care of themselves,” Graves said. “It’s a place to revive themselves and replenish themselves after all they pour out for others.

“At the end of it all I hope every woman can leave knowing they are able to fulfill the calling God has on their lives. If Christ is at the front in all aspects of life that they are sure to be rewarded,” Graves continue.
