My Unexpected, God Ordained Bucket List

by Dr. Anita Schamber, oneLifemaps Facilitator Many people have seen the movie, “The Bucket List,” in which two dying men (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman) create a list of things they want to do before they die. Ignoring their illnesses, together they abandon their hospital beds and set off to travel, engage in daring activities, and finally, face issues buried deeply in their hearts. What “my life story” reveals, however, is a bucket list of [...]

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 [...]

The Hurrier I Go, the Busier I Get

By Anita Schamber, oneLifemaps Facilitator As I wrote this curious title, I was reminded of an expression a friend of mine often uttered when life seemed out of control, “The hurrier I go, the busier I get.” Of course, my friend would try to move faster, accomplish things more quickly and get even MORE done than he had planned for the day. As a life coach and oneLifemaps facilitator, I often support people as they [...]

When Love’s Heart Suffers

by Anita Schamber, LTML Facilitator As life stories intersect, people meet each other in unexpected places for God-ordained reasons. That seemed to be true when I met Nancy Bentz in a breakout session at a Christian Leadership Alliance Conference in April 2009. Although we sat as far away from each other as possible in the room, by the end of the session, Nancy waited for me at the door and asked if she could call me once [...]

The Unlikely Leader

by Anita Schamber  Recently I facilitated a Board retreat for a Women of Vision Chapter in Charlotte, North Carolina. (These women partner in local community projects, as well as global projects, sponsored by World Vision.) Although I was immersed in a crowd of amazing women leaders, my devotional focused on an “unlikely” leader, the Samaritan woman who encountered Jesus at Jacob’s well from John 4. This woman lived in an unmarried relationship after having been [...]

Mosette Syndrome

by Anita Schamber, onelifemaps Facilitator If you are like me, "self-doubt" has crept in on little cat feet into one or more of your decisions during your life so far. On those occasions when God or His appointees presented you with an opportunity to serve, you may have questioned, "Who me? You want me to do what? I don't think I can do that. Ask someone else." For as long as I can remember, I've [...]

In the Spirit of Christmas

by Anita Schamber, oneLifemaps Facilitator During the recent busy Christmas season, when have you noticed the love of God through the kindness and compassion of others? As my 4 year old granddaughter, Claire Arney, rode in the back seat of her mother’s car one bitterly cold December day on the way to preschool in Denver, she noticed a homeless man on the corner holding a makeshift, cardboard sign with the scrawled words “Cold, Hungry, Ugly, [...]
