The Pace of Grace

The New Year is almost here. A fresh start. For me it will be a year to learn to live grace-paced. You can read about that here where I share about my 2020 word-of-the-year. The last Recalibrate Life book I read in 2019 was Alan Fadling's book "An Unhurried Life." This book led me to [...]

My Word of the Year for 2020

2019 was my year to "Recalibrate life." It was a year of learning and making slow changes in many areas of life. But, it was mostly a year of heart tranformation. Now we find the year nearing it's end, and we're ready to embark on a new year. I made a long list of possibilities [...]

Looking Back at My Recalibrate Life Year

My word/phrase for 2019 was "recalibrate life." And now that the year is nearing its end it seems appropriate to look back and re-evaluate. I feel very positive about the inner growth that took place this year. My "inner growth" has translated into life changes, true recalibration. Both heart transformation and mind reset. As I [...]

Getting the Rest You Need

Goal #5 for me in 2020 is to work more diligently on my health. Too often our health is neglected due to caregiving, or long work hours, or just plain busyness. ~ We want to eat healthy, but planning good meals takes time. ~ We try to get exercise, but when it gets pushed to [...]

A Haven of Love, Rest, and Connection

My fourth goal for 2020 is to make our home a haven of love, rest, and connection. I have a picture in mind of what that will look like and feel like for me, but in order to know I have achieved the goal in the end, I need to find ways to accomplish this. [...]

Reaching for Love and Finding His Way

This month has flown by. It has been a busy month of decluttering and packing, readying for our moving. My Recalibrate Life read this month is Your Sacred Yes by Susie Larson. It is definitely the book that has impacted my life the most. The truths within the covers of this book have given me [...]

Rest Stops on My Journey

My Recalibrate Life Read for July is Even God Rested: Why It's Okay for Women to Slow Down by Kim Thomas. This book centers around the themes of ceasing and feasting in the three areas of Emotional Rest, Physical Rest, and Spiritual Rest. There are suggestions, Rest Stops at the end each chapter to guide you in [...]

Rooting in God’s Love

The Lord is using His Word to speak to my heart and give me new and deeper understanding of His love for me. It is truly in His love that we find rest. And it is in that heart-rest that a life of simplicity grows out of. My study of His love began with Ephesians [...]

My Response to GodSpace: Time for Peace in the Rhythms of Life

My recalibrate life read for March was GodSpace: Time for Peace in the Rhythms of Life, by Christine Sine, M.D. The focus of this book is to invite its readers to "make space for God" and "discover a Christlike pace that liberates us from the frenzy of a culture enslaved by time." She begins the [...]

The Luxury of Lingering

My goal of recalibrating life is leading me to desire simplicity in everything. Last month the sermon series at my church concentrated on the subject of prayer. Prayer can be a complicated part of life mostly because of our personal understanding and expectations of it. Too often prayer becomes a time of laying out a laundry [...]
