Lent Retreat – A Free Offering

A Journey into God’s Presence in Daily Life

I am in such great peace that I am not afraid of anything. How could I be afraid if I am with God?
—Brother Lawrence

What would it feel like to experience such great peace? What would it feel like to live this deeply into the presence of God? What would it feel like to live peacefully in all life situations?

During this retreat, we will live into God’s presence by learning simple, yet very effective prayers and learn how to live ordinary daily moments in extraordinary ways. This retreat, with one email a week and an online Contemplative Service, will be a beautiful addition to your practice. A private Facebook group will allow us to share and connect with each other during this time. Let’s walk into the heart of God together!

God’s Presence in Life-stories

From Pain to Passion to Purpose to Peace.

Join me in my conversations with ordinary people who live extraordinary lives, spiritual seekers like you and I who have learned to live in the Presence of God and transformed their pain and passion into purpose and a peaceful life.

Ann Douglas

My friend Ann Douglas lost her son Freddy in the attack on the South Tower on 9/11.

Ann shares how she transformed the pain of losing her only son by staying in the Presence of God and not losing her faith in a benevolent God.

The way Ann sees God in all events of life, including the most painful moments, is a gift to all. Ann made her childhood pain of being severely bullied and the pain of losing her son into a gift for all children. Betta Place and FreddyFrog offer free resources and help teachers stop bullying.

Dan Udy

Dan Udy shares how he struggled with alcohol addiction early on in life and how an almost fatal accident at the age of 17 was his big wake up call.

In his adult years, Dan had a mental break down where he lost touch with reality. He spent time in a clinic and was introduced to yoga during that time. He healed with a regular yoga practice, meditation and prayer. Dan shares with a vulnerability and openness that is rare among adults. God’s grace is present in every word Dan shares with us!

Sherry Somerville

Sherry Somerville was 30 years old when she lost her mother to cancer. She was 62 when her sister, who was also her best friend, died of cancer.

Sherry shares how God has given her the gift she asked for, and the strength she needed to walk this journey with her sister. Sherry’s gift to us lies in her deep faith in God. She shares how a devastating illness like cancer can also be a gift when we invite God into all our life circumstances!

Sherry is the president of the Mary Lou Fraser Foundation for families, named after her mom, Mary Lou Fraser.
