It’s amazing how the time fills in when space is made for other things. I miss blogging but I have yet to make the progress I want to in the other areas in my life. In many ways, staying here in this little cabin has helped to prune more areas than I was initially prepared for, but it is all good. Everything is well, especially with my soul.
Not too long ago, I gave a couple of talks at a retreat, and they were recorded. Here is the first one I gave, titled:
Pulling the Plug on Distraction to Connect with a Real Life: Or, how a mommy blogger deleted herself off the net to regain sight of what was truly important while trying to follow Jesus’s rhythm of life. Plus: three things you MUST do to cultivate a deliberate life
I hope you’ll find it thoughtful and a blessing. Also, underneath the player you’ll find the notes to the talk, that you may download if you wish to take the time to ponder and reflect (and I hope you do!).
I need to add that my definition on what a “life lived in integrity” means was compiled from reading The Accidental Creative. I found that book to be helpful in organizing–and continuing to organize–my work and personal projects and goals.
If you haven’t read PRESENT yet, I hope you will make some space for it. And, if you have, I would love it if you recommended it to your friends, or left me a review
