Is Self-Knowledge Scary?

Photo Credit: Nick Beswick on Unsplash By Sharon Swing Is gaining self-knowledge scary? Some people think so. I have come to feel that I would rather know myself well - so I can choose to lean into who God made me to be and what he made me to do. Equally important is the fact that I want to know myself so I don’t unconsciously do things that get in the way of [...]

Comprehending Your Own Storyline

Photo Credit: Daniil Silantev on Unsplash By Sharon Swing It is possible for a human to live their own life story without comprehending the storyline. The only reason we keep inviting people into the experience of life-mapping using 'Listen to My Life' is so to help them to recognize and respond to God in their stories. That’s it. We have witnessed that when a person leans in, desiring to recognize and respond to [...]

Know Thyself

Photo Credit: Matese Fields on Unsplash By Sharon Swing Christians are capable of gathering knowledge of the Bible and theology without changing. I find that troublesome. Some Christians become less loving, kind, generous, or joyful the more they are steeped in head knowledge about God. Surely, we are invited into an amazing relationship with God, who knows us, and wants to be known by us.  We may come to humbly acknowledge that we [...]

Are Emotions Allowed in the Valley?

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?” [...]

Lent – A Sacred Journey In His Shadow

Photo by Danielle Macinnes By Joan Kelley, Director of Facilitator Development and oneLifemaps Facilitator I remember when my son Drew was four. While Drew did not need a lot of extra hugs, he did like to know where I was. He didn’t need me to hold his hand. He just needed to be near me. I could be in the middle of Target, look around and realize one of my children was missing, only [...]

Confidence and Competence

By Sibyl Towner The works that God has given you to do are most often embodied in the most satisfying activities of your life. This leads to confidence and competence. Listen and watch as Sibyl connects these two concepts and discover your unique design. Scripture: “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 NIV Questions: 1. Name a skill [...]

You Cannot Die Badly If You Have Lived Well

Photo Michelle Travis by Leslie Dawson, oneLifemaps Facilitator “You cannot die badly if you have lived well.” St. Augustine These words were spoken by the minister during the Memorial Service of one of my closest and dearest friends of thirty years and fellow oneLifemaps Facilitator. Debbie Smith recently lost her life to a Stage 5 brain aneurism while filling a pitcher of water at her kitchen sink.  It was sudden, shocking, and incredibly sad [...]

Together We Drink This Cup

by Malinda Patterson There is something sacred in telling a story.  There is something especially sacred in telling one’s own story.  And it is an honor to be trusted with the story of another.  And so last week, our newly born community gathered around one another ten times to tell the stories of our lives.

Listening To Your Life As a Spiritual Practice

by Sibyl Towner, Co-Author of Listen To My Life Have you ever viewed your life as a story? Have you considered how your story is a part of God’s grander story? We live in a story of love. Sometimes we might think our story is finished. Complete. We think our early chapters determine the outcome of our lives. But there are always new chapters being written. Click here to listen as Sibyl talks with us [...]

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 [...]
