Anne Trufant weaves music, humor, and common life experiences together to bring faith to life. A wife, mother of 7, nine grandchildren (and counting!), speaker, and musician, Anne has been a retreat leader both in the US and abroad.

Originally from Louisiana, Anne received her Master’s in Social Work from LSU and helped found Hosanna House, a home for unwed mothers in Baton Rouge, LA. (Anne had the privilege to work with Mother Teresa, who later took over Hosanna House.)

For the last 33 years, Anne and her husband, David, have lived in Brevard, NC, and have recently transitioned the running of Camp Kahdalea for girls and Camp Chosatonga for boys to three of their amazing sons. Anne and David are also co-founders of Change Lives Now, Inc., a non-profit organization working to provide a future with hope for those who struggle with social and spiritual deprivation and poverty, primarily in war-torn areas of Africa.

Most recently, Anne is founder of The Mission on the Mountain, a ministry to teach, equip, activate and launch anyone who wants to grow in their faith through dynamic retreats and online teachings. Anne is passionate about sharing her faith and does so in a way that engages and inspires.

Prayer teams are available following the meal.
Religious books and CD’s may be available at the meal.
Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance.
