Journeying Through Loss


As busy women, our lives can easily become overwhelming and over-programmed. From work to parenting to marriage to housekeeping to church to volunteering, we can get used to having our lives jam-packed with responsibilities and commitments. Though we long for time alone with God, when we actually get that time, we can flounder. What to do? How do we fill an hour with God? Or two? Or maybe even three?

This is your moment to be real. To face and deal with the loss in your life, but to do it with God. To turn your eyes, your heart, your attention to him as you struggle through this time of darkness toward the light. This Kyria download contains 12 different ideas and experiences you can use during a period of time you’ve set aside to be alone with God and focus on silence and solitude. Each idea can take from 10 to 20 minutes. So flip through these pages and zero in on the experiences that fit you best. If you’ve got just an hour, plan on doing about 4 experiences; or, alternately, you could take about half of a day to utilize all 12 ideas in this packet.
