Simply Grateful

Photo by Jean Lakosnyk by Joan Kelley, Director of Facilitator Development and oneLifemaps Facilitator I remember the things our kids said thanks for at the dinner table when they were small…peas, ketchup, ants on the sidewalk, ice cream cones. My kids are getting older but I’m still learning lessons from their thankful hearts.  Here’s what God put on my heart just this week as I reflected on my need for gratitude.  “In the [...]

Looking for Community?

by Julie Thomas, oneLifemaps Facilitator For many people, life mapping is a foreign concept and can leave one with more questions than answers. One of my early memories of doing the Life Giving Rhythms map was opening the map instructions and seeing two lists: Connecting Your Desires to a Spiritual Practice and Negative Patterns and Balancing Spiritual Practice. My first thought was, "What's that?”followed quickly by "Oh, I think I want to try that?" and [...]

More Than Just A Day

by Leslie Dawson, oneLifemaps facilitator What is thanksgiving?  It is an expression of gratitude, especially to God.  It is giving thanks for the harvest.  What has God harvested in your heart this year? Each person, regardless of race, position, or circumstances has a reason to be thankful.  Enjoy these encouraging words by Meister Eckhart.

The Joy of My Salvation

by Leslie Dawson, oneLifemaps Facilitator I was thrilled when I first learned I would have the opportunity to work through the Listen to My Life maps.  Being the rule follower that I am, I diligently filled out both the My Life Now and My Life Story maps before the event began.  I took a lot of time filling out the My Life Story map because I had never really chronicled my story in such a [...]

Unmask the Divine

  by Leslie Dawson, oneLifemaps Facilitator It’s summertime! Many of us make plans to get away, slow down or even take a vacation.  Our family has enjoyed some wonderful times together. When I am away and get the chance to slow down, I often find it is easier to notice God and hear his voice. However, noticing God in the very heart of daily life can be a challenge for me. Being aware of his [...]

5 Minute Meetings

by Emy Lyn Bell, Photographer Did you know I was fired from my first big girl job? Yep.  It's true.  It seriously sucked and has for a long time now.  A 5 minute meeting and BAM my life was thrown in a totally different direction.  Though I've attempted to not allow that 5 minute meeting to affect me so much, it has for years.  I have been angry.  I have been embarrassed and ashamed.  Every time [...]


by Joan Kelley, Director of Facilitator Development and oneLifemaps Facilitator “Taste and see that the Lord is good!”  Psalm 34:8 Tonight John and I went to dinner at a little bistro by our house.  I grew up on a farm.  We ate a lot of meat and potatoes, not rich foods drizzled with fancy sauces served in tiny portions.  I had no idea what a bistro was until I was about 30 years old.  At that time, [...]

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. You would think [...]
