Life Giving Rhythms and Lenten Season

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 [...]

Confidence and Competence

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 [...]

Below the Waterline

Photo by Oh Kaye by Diana Malone Akins, oneLifemaps Facilitator When I was a child I loved to make an image out of a page of disconnected dots. You remember them, a mass of numbered dots that mysteriously sat on the paper, a puzzle waiting to be solved. The excitement mounted as you followed the numbers and discovered the image hidden inside. Out it popped! Like an object under water! Transitional seasons can [...]

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

by Julie Thomas, oneLifemaps Facilitator It was Saturday morning, November 6, 2010. I sat in a circle with a group of eight other women at a Listen To My Life workshop as our facilitator began to read a paraphrase of Mark 10:46-52. “Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, I, a blind woman named _____ (that is, the daughter of _____ and _____), [...]

Listening To Your Life As a Spiritual Practice

by Sibyl Towner, Co-Author of Listen To My Life Have you ever viewed your life as a story? Have you considered how your story is a part of God’s grander story? We live in a story of love. Sometimes we might think our story is finished. Complete. We think our early chapters determine the outcome of our lives. But there are always new chapters being written.

Looking for Community?

by Julie Thomas, oneLifemaps Facilitator For many people, life mapping is a foreign concept and can leave one with more questions than answers. One of my early memories of doing the Life Giving Rhythms map was opening the map instructions and seeing two lists: Connecting Your Desires to a Spiritual Practice and Negative Patterns and Balancing Spiritual Practice. My first thought was, "What's that?”followed quickly by "Oh, I think I want to try that?" and [...]

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 [...]

I Don’t Know Myself Anymore

by Sibyl Towner, Co-Author of Listen To My Life Do you sometimes wonder, “Who am I really? Who was I? When did I know myself? Is there a way to get to know who I am so I can express that to others and use if for good in my family, my community and the world?” These questions are important and significant.

Across the Ocean

By Deitra Shoemaker, oneLifemaps Facilitator I waited on that Monday morning . . . waited for the Kenyan ladies to show up to begin their Listen to My Life Workshop.   Nine in the morning and no one arrives.  Well, it is Africa, and they do time differently than we Americans.   The pastor goes to check and comes back to say a helicopter almost crashed in a field near the village so everyone went [...]
