The MAP YOUR LIFE Virual Workshop Experience will use the LISTEN TO MY LIFE: MAPS FOR RECOGNIZING AND RESPONDING TO GOD IN MY STORY materials as its core workbook and text.
LISTEN TO MY LIFE is a unique visual tool that becomes an on-ramp to conversations with yourself, God, and trusted others in reviewing your past, assessing your present and continuing to joyfully and courageously walk with God into your future. The goal is to help you recognize and respond to God in the midst of your story.
As you invite God into the process and document your story, desires, observations and plans in words, phrases, and pictures, you may sense God providing fresh insights, questions or specific direction by helping you to:
What's Included in the
Workshop begins Tuesday, September 8 at Noon OR 7:30pm
(you choose your call time) and runs thru November 10, 2020
Early Action pricing ends August 30 at Midnight, CST • Registration closes Wednesday, September 2.
This is your primary text and workbook for the MAP YOUR LIFE Virtual Workshop.
We’ll send the materials in the mail soon after you register. This is where you’ll document your life stories on 8 visual maps that will give you an opportunity to invite God to guide you toward what is most important for you. He is always inviting you toward freedom, and these materials will give you an on-ramp for intentional interaction with God over your story. Many people enjoy using erasable colored pencils to write, doodle and draw on their maps as they reflect on the prompts contained in the map booklets. You’ll find detailed descriptions of the portfolio and maps below.
The video teaching segments will provide you with additional guidance and helpful hints on how to get started on each map in the Listen to My Life portfolio.
Each video will leave you feeling equipped and confident with step-by-step guidance that may be helpful when you’re wondering where to begin. Taught by Co-Authors Sharon Swing and Sibyl Towner, along with our Director of Facilitator Development, Joan Kelley, you’ll find friendly voices gently encouraging you to engage with God over what is most important to you in your story, past, present and future.
Group coaching calls provide a time for you to join with other participants to talk about how the process is going, answer any questions, share insights and learn from one another.
Often, you’ll be pointed toward additional resources to enhance your experience if you care to dive more deeply into the content and reflections on the intersection of life story and spiritual growth.
We will host coaching calls at 12 Noon and 7:30 PM on Tuesdays, so you can select which time works best for you. We'll record the calls in case you are unable to join us live.
You’ll have access to an online coaching portal that invites you to document your reflections as you complete each visual map in the Listen to My Life Experience.
Your Certified Coach, Sharon Swing will be reading and responding to your reflections. This is one-on-one, private interaction not shared with any other participant. It’s a great opportunity to get that personal interaction you may benefit from as you journey through the life-mapping process. (Another wildly qualified coach may be assist Sharon in certain circumstances, so you'll always get very personalized assistance.)
The workshop-participants-only Facebook page will be your place to connect with other participants, ask questions, browse suggested resources, and share your progress.
One of the powerful parts of engaging in the Listen to My Life process with others is the energy and support you’ll get along the way. This will also be your place to find listening partners if you care to connect with others in the virtual workshop.
You will be encouraged to find listening partners on our closed facebook group. Or, invite a friend to participate with you in this virtual workshop to be your listening partner in-person, or across the world on your own schedule.
Governed by our Listening Guidelines, these sessions are designed to offer a safe place to share what is most important to you as you are documenting your story in the Listen to My Life portfolio.
While we will create opportunties for participant to find listening partners, we cannot guarantee that you will find a partner who is available when you are available. It has worked out really well every time we have hosted a virtual group!
The Early Action Bonuses are available until Midnight CST, Sunday, August 30. They include:
“LISTEN TO MY LIFE is an essential tool for life discovery as you begin the adventure of what’s next for your life. Before you take your first step, sit down with Listen to My Life and let it guide you through life maps that will help you identify where God has been present in your life and where God is taking you next.”
-Bob Buford, Author, Halftime, and Founder and Chairman of 10x (Leadership Network)
“Through the LISTEN TO MY LIFE journey, I experienced both significant discoveries and deep healing of my soul. I especially recommend this material for anyone who is in a season of transition, seeking what God might lift from the past and bring forward into the future. How grateful I am for this process which is firmly rooted in scripture and guidance from many wise souls who have traveled before me.”
-Nancy Beach, Speaker and Author of Gifted to Lead & An Hour on Sunday
“LISTEN TO MY LIFE is a wildly unique tool that helped me to take a look at my story in a way that produced spiritual growth and productive focus. I’ve worked through the process with two groups of dear friends — a women’s group, and a couples’ group. We are connected more deeply than ever, and we’re dedicated to supporting each other to courageously co-create the stories God has for our futures. Dive into your journey. You’ll be so blessed!”
-Margie Banchard, PhD, Co-Founder, The Ken Blanchard Companies
“WE ALL KNOW THE POWER OF STORY, but making sense of the accumulated tale our own lives tell — which could unlock great insight and wisdom for the story God wants to unfold in and through us — seems nearly impossible. Sibyl and Sharon have crafted an ultimately engaging and revealing masterpiece that could not just change your life, but make the most of it!”
-Russ Robinson, Small Groups author, speaker and consultant, and former Willow Creek Community Church Director of Ministries
“What at first glance looked like a study has instead become a lifestyle. Through ‘Listen to My Life,’ I have discovered the Lord’s fingerprints in my life and the unique ways He can use me in this world. The study has given me both the tools and the confidence to look at my life – past, present and future – with renewed hope and expectation, believing now more than ever that He has a great, irreplaceable purpose for me. Listen to My Life beautifully weaved together for me the joy and reality of knowing Christ and how being in tune with His work can lead me to great adventures. ”
