This is the perfect time to press pause and reflect on how this year has been on your heart, mind and body, sweet girl.

I recommend trying to set aside about thirty to sixty minutes, if you’re able.
Light a candle.
Pour a cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate.
Get out your journal.
Play some quiet music.

Ask the Spirit to quiet your heart and mind and to speak. Then, gently ask these questions of yourself and honestly answer them, for your eyes only.

How is my heart toward God these days?

What were my most significant family moments?

What was the biggest contributor to my personal growth?

What caused my greatest sadness?

What was my greatest joy?

How do I want to be remembered? (What’s the ending I want to write for my life?)

Who do I love? Who do I want to love better?

What did I learn from God or about God this year?


If these spurred your heart and emotions and you’d like to go even deeper, you are invited to kick off this year with my e-course, Fresh Starts!

In this course, we’re going to:
take a look back
honestly assess our current reality
peer into our future year
set ourselves up for a more whole year with some thoughts & tips on self-care

and (if you’re up for it) we’re going to create our own manifesto

Here’s what you’ll get:
We’ll begin in a private Facebook group.
We will walk through four readings and four journaling exercises, sent via email every Tuesday & Saturday for two weeks.
We will have Q&A webcasts where I’ll answer your specific questions and encourage your specific hearts.
We will each create a manifesto to propel us through the new year.
We will begin on Tuesday, January 3.

Course availability: I only hold this course in January, so it’s now or not again until 2024!
Space limit: I am limiting this group to the first twenty women to sign up.
Registration is open now and lasts through January 2.
All this jump-starting for only $39. (This is the lowest I’ve ever priced this course!)

You can register for Fresh Starts HERE.

Taking a few moments to sit quietly and focus your heart and mind on Jesus is one of the best things you can do for yourself spiritually, mentally, emotionally and even physically. Enjoy this free gift of guided meditations.

you're just moments away from calm!
