See Me!

Photo By Kristina MM by Jean Masukevich, Yoga Instructor and Founder, Soar 4 Kids, Inc. I just heard a story about an 18 month old who woke from her nap and called out from her crib with joy filled expectancy, “See me, see me!” When her Mama went into her bedroom to see her she was covered with Vaseline that she snagged from her changing table and smeared all over her head and [...]

Valley Freedom

by Laurie Proctor, oneLifemaps Facilitator My mind races and I have the undeniable urge to run out of the room.  I grip the arms of my chair to make sure that I don’t.  I am about to share a painful valley experience with a group of near strangers who are all staring at me expectantly.  I have willingly agreed to do this but now it seems like a careless, almost reckless thing to do.  Something akin to [...]

How Could This Belong?

Photo by Lynnette Richardson by Julie Thomas, oneLifemaps Facilitator “Everything in your story belongs."  This is one of the foundational teachings of Listen to My Life. On a good day, I believe it. On a not so good day, I forget it. Lately, the part of my story I don’t think belongs is my recurring struggle with depression. Depression has been described as a deep dark hole that seems to have no way [...]

Long Overdue Thoughts

by Joy Bork It is time. It is time to write again. It is time to blog again. It is time to live free. It is time to adventure again. It is time.   The past two years have been the hardest two years of my life so far.  On the flip side, they have also been two of the best years.  For some reason, the saying that "out of hardship comes the greatest growth" [...]

Life’s Detours

by Sharon Swing, Co-Author of Listen To My Life On a recent road trip from Chicago to New York City, we encountered a sign that indicated there was a detour 20 miles ahead.  We stopped, had lunch, enjoyed a small town off the interstate and obliviously got back on the interstate only to run into a traffic jam and a mandatory detour that took us 80 miles and more than an hour out of our [...]

5 Minute Meetings

by Emy Lyn Bell, Photographer Did you know I was fired from my first big girl job? Yep.  It's true.  It seriously sucked and has for a long time now.  A 5 minute meeting and BAM my life was thrown in a totally different direction.  Though I've attempted to not allow that 5 minute meeting to affect me so much, it has for years.  I have been angry.  I have been embarrassed and ashamed.  Every time [...]

Is God Sovereign?

by Cheri Hudspith, oneLifemaps Facilitator I stopped writing for a while. It wasn't because I lacked time to write. I found myself in a bit of a mess. I couldn't put the pieces together enough to write about them. I was walking through a valley experience. If I had been writing, I’d have said things like: I'm confused. I don't understand pain and suffering. It really ticks me off that the world is so broken [...]

Immeasurably More!

by Susan Krause, a Listen To My Life Participant Listen to My Life was the instrument God used to bring me out of a deep, dark hole I found myself in three years ago.  I had convinced myself that my life was basically over. I had lost all the things that meant the most to me and was beating myself up over making some very poor decisions.  I had just retired; moved to a new [...]

Reframing on Raspberry Mountain

by Kim Nielsen, oneLifemaps Facilitator Waking up to a God-kissed day on Raspberry Mountain filled my heart with joy! Much of what is life-giving to me could be found on this day: being in the majestic mountains, walking in the wildflower valleys, receiving my breath of the Spirit from the cool morning air as God affirmed my life this day, spending extended time with Him on retreat and sharing it with other women seeking God. [...]

A Crown of Tears

by Nancy Bentz, oneLifemaps Facilitator (excerpted from her “Wellspring of Life” Wordpress blog post “The Crown of Tears”) In a lifetime, how many tears are shed? We cannot count the number of times we’ve grieved, sobbed and wiped our eyes and snotty nose, let alone how many individual tears have welled up and spilled over like a relief valve opened up for our frayed and tender emotions. I have no doubt the Lord saves for [...]
