Grab a cup of coffee. I wanna chat a bit.
On Monday we opened the cart to our new course, Inside Out.
Several people have asked me if the course about food and somehow finding the willpower to eat a certain way. Um, no. In fact, I wrote about that in my last post: Why I’ve Renounced Diet Plans. It’s not about the food.
However, there are two major reasons why I created the online course, “Inside Out.”
I was stunned at how my behaviors changed once I learned (in a new way, perhaps, or maybe I was just primed to hear an old message) what God the Father has done for me through Jesus Christ and who I am because of that.
Every day I sit with that message and let it permeate into the "me of me." It has changed how I think, love, and live and it is the gift I HAVE to share. I knew it would be best received in a more intimate setting, which is why I created a course. A course is an experience.
The other reason I felt compelled to write this course is about you, Christian Mother. Now, I’m not exactly sure how to say this, so I guess I’ll just dive.
Parenting teens is BY FAR the best part of the motherhood journey. HOWEVER, it has also brought me to the most difficult emotional places. As my kids have had to confront all of the temptations in our world combined with their own human weaknesses, it has ripped a hole through my inner self.
There is no hiding if you want to parent your teens WELL. (I guess you could hide if you don’t want to get too involved.)
The truth of the matter: we have to get our crap together before we can help them with theirs.
ALL OF THAT (and so much more!) is covered in the course. So is it about food? Yeah, kind of. But it’s more about the heart. It’s more about the soul. It’s more about who we really are and how we can live full, whole, integrated lives.
WHY? So we can guide our little, medium and large people through the perplexity that is their life in this over-sexualized, over-commercialized, over-everything culture.
If this resonates with you, then we invite you:
As a bonus, I created a downloadable journal. One participant in our beta group told me that the journal was a “game changer” because instead of only listening or reading, she was able to take the time needed to reflect on the questions and activities at the end of each lesson. Another participant took the journal into Adoration with her every week, where she reflected more deeply on the questions.
