By Sharon Swing, Co-Author, Listen to My Life:  Maps for Recognizing and Responding to God in My Story This breath prayer is one I say as a way of reminding myself who I am and to whom I belong.  It offers me peace, perspective and perseverance in times when I may be willing to believe my circumstances or voices from my past more readily than intentionally listening for what God has to say to me.

by Bellyn Whitteker It was a warm summer day when I arrived at the Hokey Pokey Ranch in Colorado for a Listen to My Life Retreat. As I began to settle in and become acquainted with a few of the others, I heard about a tall wooden cross located a short distance from the main building. A frequent visitor to the ranch had laid out a new path through sagebrush and across a gully with [...]

By Bonnie Ferris, oneLifemaps Facilitator The life of a caregiver has its ups and downs, its rewards and challenges.  The spiritual practice of Silence and Solitude has been life giving to me as I care for my 94-year-old mom who lives with my husband and me. In December, I attended an overnight Silent Retreat held in a retreat center in the surrounding beauty of wooded paths and meandering stream. Knowing I had been neglecting caring [...]

by Sibyl Towner, Co-Author of Listen To My Life Your life matters…we have only one life to live…live it to the full! We have heard these words before but the question remains, “How do we go about doing that”? The answer may just lie in living well into the common, ordinary moments given to us by God each day.

Photo Credit: William Stitt By Sharon Swing, oneLifemaps co-author There are questions that linger in your mind, body and spirit, but are sometimes barely in the realm of conscious thought. Where does your mind drift in the quiet moments, the shower, or the car?  Are you ruminating on a worry or a hurt, or are you planning and dreaming of a hopeful future?  Is there a question you’d love to ask God [...]

Photo Credit: Milada Vigerova by Jennifer Grabianski, speaker, teacher, and life coach I am living in the valley. Though I have enjoyed many victorious mountaintop experiences, right now I am laid low, grieving a painful loss, living with more questions than answers. The first time I used the LTML Valley Experiences Map to process a difficult experience, one question in particular stood out to me: “How do I grieve in healthy ways?” [...]

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. [...]
