Six Weeks :: January 9 – February 13, 2021

It’s been on my mind for some years, to host a Journaling Class. Personally, I’ve been journaling most of my life. I’ve an entire shelf full of old journals. And I recall a journaling class that I attended in my teenage years. My mom signed me up and drove me into the city each Saturday for a number of weeks for that class; it was a catalyst for all my decades of intentional growth, challenge, recording, and visioning of my life. And now, with numerous requests from others, I suppose, it is time to pass some of what I’ve learned, to You.

Journaling need not be fancy. It doesn’t need huge blocks of time. There are many different ways to journal. A consistent steady kind of thing is the goal. 

I’ll teach you how to use journaling prompts from every day. You will discover how to incorporate journaling into your Meditative Prayer practice. We will explore how to weave together thoughts or quotes that we find in our everyday. And you will have simple recordings of your inner world that over time, present one concise and profound journey with yourself and the Lord.

“Journaling is a bit like gardening. A little like sewing. A lot like painting. The craft of knowing oneself is the foundation of life, for its in the depths of our being that God meets us most.” Cyndy Lavoie


NOTE: I have always offered prayer or classes as a gift and by donation to the body of Christ. I am well aware that what I have been given freely I must also freely give. Mostly, I would never want this kind of a class, prayer, healing, and wholeness, to be inaccessible to anyone merely because of funds. 

But we do hold to a standard that each participant must contribute something, even if that something is as little as $5; a freedom to receive and ability to partake, coupled with an investment back to help with our continued work with the Body of Christ around the world, is key.
