"Scripture has become more personal and real, as if I'm walking closely with Jesus instead of only reading words."

She provides you with a weekly Scripture passage for a lectio divina meditation along with a weekly instructional video to help you along the way. At the end of each week, you will also receive a blessing.

"With the very first meditation exercise, I got a new depth of understanding of Jesus's love for me."

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course begin?
The course begins on Monday, February 27, 2017. The eighth week ends on Saturday, April 22, 2017, but you will have access to all the course materials through at least May 20, 2017.
How does the course work?
This is an 8-week online course. You will receive new content each week based on this schedule: Each week you will receive a Scripture meditation for the week as well as instructional video that will cover a topic regarding Scripture meditation in more depth. Each Friday you will receive a blessing. The reason you only get one Scripture meditation each week is intentional. We want you to slow down and savor the passage. This allows you to not rush or hurry, but to be more attentive to meeting God in the Scripture passage.

"The course has given me a lot of freedom in my relationship with Jesus. I'm one of those who have trouble being consistent with my "quiet time" and feel guilty if I don't. The traditional ways to structure a quiet time have been hard for me to use...I get bogged down and have felt frustrated with them. But this approach to meditation and relationship with Jesus has helped me to put aside those things and just focus on being with Jesus and listening to him."
