Central Illinois

Bloomington, IL

Laurie Haynes is Director of Post Abortion Support at Living Alternatives, an organization based in Central IL with 12 Pregnancy Resource Centers, a residential facility and mobile medical clinic.

She began volunteering as a client advocate and ultrasound nurse at the Bloomington, IL Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) in 2002. In 2013 she attended her own Deeper Still retreat in Knoxville, TN and afterwards was on the founding team to start the first IL Deeper Still chapter in April 2014.

Laurie is married to Todd and they have two grown children, a son and daughter-in-law and one delightful grandson Jack. Laurie and Todd live in a log cabin in the woods, enjoying God’s creation and their 4 pets. They are actively involved at their home church of 25 years in Illinois.

No matter where you are on your healing journey, Deeper Still Central IL invites you to a free and confidential weekend away where you will experience even more healing, freedom and restoration for your abortion wounded heart. It can be hard to set aside time for yourself but you are worth it. Many preparations are made for you at our retreat facility and we can’t wait to meet you.

Our retreat site was founded in 1930 as a restful place set aside to experience the natural wonder of God’s creation. With over 160 acres of woods, trails and lakefront, the site offers a reprieve and respite away from the routines and busy-ness of life.

The retreat site is beautifully rustic, warm and cozy and positioned on scenic Lake Bloomington. A variety of hardwoods and evergreens greet you as you walk through the property.

We are humbled and honored to “walk through” this healing weekend with you. Just reach out your hand - we are here for you.

Recent testimony from a Retreat Participant:

"My life will never be the same. Who knew one weekend could leave an imprint this huge?! I am leaving renewed, refreshed and inspired.”
