Billie Holiday said, “If I’m going to sing like someone else, then I don’t need to sing at all.” Mary, after news of Jesus’ birth, broke into song too! “He has put a new song in my mouth.” Ps.40:3
How can you sing your song this Christmas, instead of letting stress steal your spark?
Sweet kindred, I am SO excited to kick off a Special NEW Advent Podcast Series: Whispers of Christmas!
Special Advent Series: Whispers of Christmas
Beginning today, I’m doing a Special 4-Week Advent Series Podcast: Whispers of Christmas! Get ready to truly experience Christmas in your soul, friend. Spread the word! Click the Image to listen to the podcast.
Today’s special Advent Podcast – Spark Hope, Not Stress features an Audio Devotional for Christmas and a talk with best-selling author and blogger Kristen Welch (We Are That Family, “Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World“) will inspire you to:
- Refresh your soul beautiful audio devotional & music
- Slow Down & Break the Cycle of Busy to spark God’s HOPE in you
- Combat discouragement whenever you feel “It’s too late!”
- How to stay inspired, rather than let stress steal your spark
- Learn the power of “the secret chocolate stash” to capture the moments that mean the most to your heart
- Nurture gratitude in the heart of your child by nurturing your own heart from a place of honesty and vulnerability
Plus, I share what I learned this week to live & build the life of the beloved!
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST NOW, FRIEND!
Listen to a new podcast every week. I’ll take you on my personal journey to build a life of meaning as God’s beloved! Rather than disappearing for 2-3 years to live my life & write a book, I’m sharing what I learn, as the journey unfolds with you! Inspired by my 40day Devotional Whispers of Rest: Revitalizing Your Soul With God’s Love.

Special New Year Jan 2018
#WhispersofRest Book Club #LightYourSpark
Due to popular request, I’m thinking about hosting the Whispers of Rest Book Club again in January 2018 (Book Club is not confirmed. Stay tuned).
If I do decide to do a January book club, it will be a SPECIAL book club because you know I’m a retreat leader right? I’m planning to do some Whispers of Rest WORKSHOPS with you in Weekly FB Lives!
Plans are not confirmed (still planning phase). But, does that sound fun? Would you be interested? If you would do the FB Book Club in January, click to share a comment and let me know.
A Prayer of Hope For Your Heart Today
As we step into Advent,
draw my friend close, the one you call Beloved,
who is reading these words now.
Spark something curious within her
as she listens to today’s Advent podcast
that is special – meant just for her
from your heart.
Fold her hand into yours,
as she thinks about the day ahead
and reminder her of your loving presence,
your complete understanding of her desire for hope
but also her questions and misgivings about hope.
Reassure her that hope is always with her
for you are her Hope.
your forever, never-giving up love for her
is her Hope.
You faithfulness to walk through this day
and this Christmas
is her hope.
You are her Hope
and you’ll never let go.
Thank you for the many ways you’ll be
whispering hope to her, in simple, quiet ways today.
In cup of hot tea she holds to warm her hand
and in the quiet sunlight that welcomes her to breathe and smile.
In Jesus’ name,
