Rita Morton lost her 30 year-old son Chad Koenig to an accidental fentanyl overdose in June 2020. One week later her surviving son Nick moved across the country, radically transforming regular “Sunday dinners” from three participants to one. Rita attributes her journey from deep loss to even deeper faith to the gifts of surrender, courage and grace. Recently retired from a 22-year career as the Director of Sales and Marketing for a manufacturing company, Rita is also the co-founder of a longstanding women’s ministry that develops programs, retreats and courses steeped in contemplative tradition. Rita is passionate about helping women heal through experiential activities, scriptural invitations, creative expression, and powerful encounters with the mystery and majesty of God.
