It seems like just yesterday that I was sitting on the eve of my Apprenticeship at The Way beginning. Full of nerves, unsettlement, doubts, and excitement. Who would I meet? What would I learn? How would I get along with the other Apprentices? Would I know enough? Would God meet me there, and move in a way I’d never experienced? Luckily for me, He met me exactly where I was, and then some.

MONTH ONE: Silence + Solitude

Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, you more than likely have an immediate gut reaction (either positive or negative) to the words, “Silence and solitude.” For all of us introverts, that sounds like a breath of life in a world where alone time is far more filling than crowded get-together’s. For extroverts, that might be your worst nightmare.

Freely + Lightly

I don’t know about you, but before my feet have even touched the floor on a new day, I’ve already disqualified myself from deserving it. I wake up to immediate disappointment- a thought comes rushing in of a mistake made yesterday, or something at work not going right, or an issue with a friend that I haven’t taken steps to resolve yet.
