Following Forward to Freedom

Photo Credit: Fabian Irsara By Nancy Booth, certified life coach and spiritual director Recently, I had the opportunity to join others at a Listen to My Life retreat featuring the “Following Forward” map. It felt like God had personally invited me to join Him on that day. I came in great anticipation of what He might have to say. The day was composed of times of silence and meditation, listening to one another without [...]

Childhood Valley Experiences—Redeemed!

Photo Credit: Sharon Christina By Patty MacCarthy, onelifemaps participant Growing up, I attended church each week with my family. In Sunday school, I was told that I was "a perfect child of God.” I never heard the word “sin” or that I was in need of a Savior. Jesus was portrayed only as teacher and healer. As a young girl, I was often left in the care of my two older brothers. Their [...]

A Choice: React or Respond

Photo Credit: Jordan Whitt Photography By Sibyl Towner Are you reacting from your past or responding to God? Our past experiences hold power over us—good or bad. In essence, our pasts compete with God for our attention. God is more powerful than any circumstance or experience, but we have to choose to give him that power in our lives. Sibyl Towner speaks about these life choices. Scripture: As a father has compassion on [...]

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 _____), [...]

Order My Days

by Carol Steffens, oneLifemaps Facilitator The trees are limp with rain tonight and more is forecasted for tomorrow. I consider my desire for the warm sunshine of yesterday's weather, but find my discomfort fades as I watch heaven's water provide drink to the thirsty ground. I am reminded of an old hymn based on Psalm 42:1, "As the deer panteth for the water, so my soul longeth after you. You alone are my heart's desire [...]

Spring’s Command

photo by Mary Kelley by Carol Steffens Stillness. Seeds from fruitful plants buried in the ground waiting for spring's command. There have been times when I have felt without Christ's presence and direction in my life. Much like the cold, dark days of winter, when nature's colors turn black and white, I have felt frozen and alone...waiting for an audible word or visible sign from God. Instead, came the whisper, "Be still....." You've [...]

Sacred Cravings

By Gail Donahue, oneLifemaps Facilitator Do you ever find yourself ambushed during your day by a certain need to taste a particular type of food?  We call this a craving.  Some of us find ourselves longing for something salty and crunchy.  Others among us prefer just a little something sweet to top off our meal, such as a deliciously warm, freshly baked chocolate chip cookie, or a bite of delectably dark chocolate or maybe a [...]

Just Do It

By Annie Sander, Worship Leader and Vocal Director, The Compass Church This morning I was on my way to a church conference. My car pulled out of my driveway at 8:32 am; and frankly – I was pretty proud of myself for being ready with perfume on, make-up on and my 8 and 6 year old kids fed by this hour. As I was driving out of my neighborhood, I saw this woman running with a [...]

4th Quarter Blessings

by Dr. Anita Schamber, oneLifemaps Facilitator As an infant, my parents presented me for baptism with a sprinkling with water as a matter of family tradition. Because I was not raised by Christ-following parents, this dedication became an important part of my childhood story, as I continued to hunger for God over my childhood and teenage years. God kept pursuing me as I continued to take steps toward Him by joining a church, serving in [...]
