I thought I’d start this post by saying I’m super stoked. But my kids would totally roll their eyes at their 47-year-old Momma using such language.
So suffice it to say, I’m excited!
Due to overwhelming popularity, I decided to compile my ‘Quiet Time’ series into a free downloadable, printable guide. I’ve been working at it for weeks, and have added lots of new and exclusive content. I’m very pleased with the result, and I hope you will be as well!
To get your free printable guide, as well as access to my members-only ‘Quiet Time Resources’ page, simply subscribe below! You’ll get new posts delivered to your inbox every week, and you’ll get instant access to ‘Redefining the Quiet Time.’
What is Quiet Time?
I’m so glad you asked.
If you’ve spent any time in evangelical Christian circles, you’ll know that ‘quiet time’ is what folks call the time they spend with God daily either in prayer, Bible reading, or a combination of both. There’s an overload of information out there about ‘how to have a quiet time’ and how to do it ‘the right way.’
So much so that many Christians have been completely turned off to the idea of a ‘quiet time’ altogether. It’s become a sort of measuring stick by which Christians judge and shame one another.
I struggled with my own ‘quiet time’ for years. It was something I felt like I needed to do, as if it were a requirement, and yet I was constantly failing at it. Then I would wallow in shame over this suspicion that I had disappointed God somehow.
I pushed myself toward more rigorous routines and discipline, and then derided myself for not living up to my own expectations. . . let alone God’s.
My friends, this is legalism, plain and simple. And it has no place in the life of a redeemed Christian.
The new printable guide addresses this topic and much more.
Here are some of the things you’ll learn:
- Why a rigid, legalistic commitment to quiet time is killing your spiritual life.
- How to approach your ‘quiet time’ in a new, refreshing way.
- How to set up a ‘prayer closet’ or other designated space for prayer.
- How to get started with prayer, and how to examine new avenues and methods of praying that will rejuvenate your time with God.
- How to read the Bible and actually get something out of it.
- How to move beyond the daily ‘quiet time’ and experience spiritual fulfillment in your everyday life.
Plus, you’ll get access to my own personal list of resources that will help you grow your spiritual life exponentially.
I can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled I am to offer this to you, my beloved readers. I hope you’ll share this post with friends who might also benefit, and my sincerest prayer is that this guide will start you on a journey toward complete fulfillment in Christ.
Much love and appreciation,
