A Simple “Yes”

by Audrey Shaneyfelt, oneLifemaps Facilitator A simple “yes” to my close friend was more than a one-word-response; it became a “Divine Appointment!” Since I took the Listen to My Life class and became a facilitator in the Kansas City area, I have found myself listening closer to small "stirrings" inside of me.  It would be easy for me to discount those little nudges or passing thoughts.  However, when I listen closer, I have found that [...]

From Gratitude to Anticipation

by Joan Kelley, Director of Facilitator Development and oneLifemaps Facilitator Thanksgiving is over and Advent begins on Sunday.  We sit in this liminal space between gratitude and anticipation.  It’s funny how this space is occupied in our culture with “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” and the feeling that we are already late for “the holidays!” In the next month, we will attempt to live not just one fully scheduled life but two.

by Nancy Byker, oneLifemaps Facilitator ....and a humble reminder of His presence. It’s Monday morning and I dial into a LTML facilitator conference call. As I introduced my joining the conversation, Sibyl asked if my view included looking at the mountains.

Take some time to sit in his [...]

Will I Bring My Gift To Him?

by Leslie Dawson, oneLife Maps Facilitator While driving in early December, I heard a familiar Christmas carol on the radio.  Though I’ve known and loved this song for years, this day I was deeply struck by the lyrics.  I listened.  Questions crystalized in my mind, one after another.  I was taken by The Drummer Boy’s obedience, willingness and focus.  The boy was asked to come and he did.  He had no gift to bring but [...]

Your Old and Weary Face

by Trish Gannon, poet I am thankful God has shown me beauty in life that is never found in a magazine cover.  I wrote this poem, “Your Old and Weary Face,” while remembering my grandmother, who lived with us.  My grandmother raised 14 of her own children and many grandchildren and friends.  This French woman sipped hot tea all day long and always had energy for work, fun and conversation.  The richness my grandmother brought [...]
