Lent – A Sacred Journey In His Shadow

By | March 21, 2017|Categories: Life-Giving Rhythms|Tags: , , , |

Photo by Danielle Macinnes By Joan Kelley, Director of Facilitator Development and oneLifemaps Facilitator I remember when my son Drew was four. While Drew did not need a lot of extra hugs, he did like to know where I was. He didn’t need me to hold his hand. He just needed to be near me. I could be in the middle of Target, look around and realize one of my children was missing, only [...]

Photo Credit: Pexels By Jennifer Grabianski I nestled into a comfy couch in the living room, surrounded by 10 caring and supportive women, most of whom I’d never met before. It was March 2011, and the Lenten season was about to begin. I had completed two-thirds of the Listen to My Life maps, and our leader was previewing the next map, “Life-Giving Rhythms,” which is about listening to God by forming an intentional [...]

Created for Something More

Photo by Luke Pamar By Julie Thomas, oneLifemaps Facilitator and Volunteer The Peak Experiences Map is one of those maps that was hard for me to wrap my head around. Like most people, I always thought Peak experiences where those high points in my life when I experienced success and was rewarded for it. The purpose of the map is to help us reflect on activities that were satisfying, whether anyone noticed or [...]

By Sibyl Towner The works that God has given you to do are most often embodied in the most satisfying activities of your life. This leads to confidence and competence. Listen and watch as Sibyl connects these two concepts and discover your unique design. Scripture: “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 NIV Questions: 1. Name a skill [...]

My Champion

Photo by Gordan By Sharon Feryance I grew up in the 1940s. At that time, a child born to unwed parents carried the stigma of being identified as an “illegitimate.”  I never knew my father, and my mother was in and out of my life. Thankfully, my grandmother raised me, but my early years were colored with loss and abuse. We moved around quite often, and I attended multiple grade schools — some [...]

Worth the Wait

by Deitra Shoemaker, oneLifemaps Affirmed Facilitator Early on this cold December morning, I venture outside in my warm bathrobe to watch the unusually colorful sunrise of orange, pink and blue as the colors meld together. Even though the 37 degree chill is beckoning me to run back inside, I stand and wait . . . I know that within minutes this “hidden manna moment” will disappear as the sun fully rises. So I decide to [...]

Photo by Bridget AMES by Joan Kelley, Director of Facilitator Development for oneLife Maps Have you stopped before you start this holiday season? My eight year old son, Mitchell, and I were reading a book before bed one night. It was a silly mystery book called Jigsaw Jones. We ran into this line in the story, “The whole family was piled tightly into the car, like a hippopotamus wearing a Speedo bathing suit.” Mitchell giggled and [...]
