LISTEN TO MY LIFE is a unique visual tool that becomes an on-ramp to conversations with yourself, God, and trusted others in reviewing your past, assessing your present and continuing to joyfully and courageously walk with God into your future. The goal is to help you recognize and respond to God in the midst of your story.
As you invite God into the process and document your story, desires, observations and plans in words, phrases, and pictures, you may sense God providing fresh insights, questions or specific direction by helping you to:
CLARIFY your desires
DISCERN how your life story impacts the way you live today and your choices for tomorrow
UNDERSTAND yourself and your part in God’s larger story
DECIDE what you might do to live a life that is a more full expression of who God created you to be
THIS ADVENTURE IS BEST SHARED with a friend, coach, counselor, small group, class mates, spiritual director or mentor to help you respond to God as you pay attention to what your life story can tell you.
LISTEN TO MY LIFE may be self-guided, or facilitated; used in a workshop, retreat, class, as a part of a larger curriculum, as a helpful tool in counseling, coaching or spiritual direction.

I especially recommend this material for anyone who is in a season of transition, seeking what God might lift from the past and bring forward into the future. How grateful I am for this process which is firmly rooted in scripture and guidance from many wise souls who have traveled before me.”

“LISTEN TO MY LIFE is an essential tool for life discovery as you begin the adventure of what’s next for your life. Before you take your first step, sit down with Listen to My Life and let it guide you through life maps that will help you identify where God has been present in your life and where God is taking you next.”
Bob Buford, Author, Halftime, and Founder and Chairman of Leadership Network
“LISTEN TO MY LIFE is a wildly unique tool that helped me to take a look at my story in a way that produced spiritual growth and productive focus. I’ve worked through the process with two groups of dear friends — a women’s group, and a couples’ group. We are connected more deeply than ever, and we’re dedicated to supporting each other to courageously co-create the stories God has for our futures. Dive into your journey. You’ll be so blessed!”
Marjorie Blanchard, PhD, Co-Founder, The Ken Blanchard Companies
“WE ALL KNOW THE POWER OF STORY, but making sense of the accumulated tale our own lives tell — which could unlock great insight and wisdom for the story God wants to unfold in and through us — seems nearly impossible. Sibyl and Sharon have crafted an ultimately engaging and revealing masterpiece that could not just change your life, but make the most of it!”
Russ Robinson, Small Groups author, speaker and consultant, and former Willow Creek Community Church Director of Ministries
“What at first glance looked like a study has instead become a lifestyle. Through ‘Listen to My Life,’ I have discovered the Lord’s fingerprints in my life and the unique ways He can use me in this world. The study has given me both the tools and the confidence to look at my life – past, present and future – with renewed hope and expectation, believing now more than ever that He has a great, irreplaceable purpose for me. Listen to My Life beautifully weaved together for me the joy and reality of knowing Christ and how being in tune with His work can lead me to great adventures. ”
Alexis Wilson, Director of Communications, Fort Worth Zoo
