Have you taken your #mindfulmoment this #MindfulMonday? We all need a little #mondaymotivation filled with #mindfulmoments especially on a Monday! That is why we have just released our prayer-filled #mindful #prayer book – Fill Me Prayer Book available in paperback, Kindle, and hard cover editions (5x8 228 pages). Try out a little #mindfulmonday #devotional #mindfulness below...
The Fill Me Prayer Book is an inspirational new way of exploring prayer-filled #mindfulness. It invites reflection on the words of the “Fill Me Prayer” that came to Penny as she was praying one morning. Unlike other #devotional #prayer books, this one invites you to pray, reflect on scripture, and play by interacting with finger labyrinth art designed specifically for each prayer verse. #Meditate on the words of the Fill Me Prayer while awakening new insights and being filled anew by the grace of the Gracious Spirit! Follow the labyrinth path as you reflect on the verses from the Fill Me Prayer and the accompanying scripture. A wonderful #prayer-filled #mindful experience to see what bubbles up from deep within. See how God is speaking to you!
We invite you to try a little #mindfulmonday #devotional #prayer for yourself – and remember to enhance your experience be sure to try out all the #prayer-filled #mindful practices offered in the Fill Me Prayer Book including ‘walking’ the custom Fill Me labyrinth art design for each prayer verse.
Let’s give #mindfulmonday #devotional #prayer a try (prayer and scripture verses from p. 53 of the Fill Me Prayer Book).
How does this work?
First, allow yourself to take a few deep breaths to relax and focus on centering yourself into calmness. Then reflect on the prayer verse and related scripture. One way is to close your eyes and silently meditate prayerfully by reciting the prayer verse slowly 3 times. Then do the same with the scripture verse. Explore how your faith, what we call your God talk and God walk, is calling you to experience Christ’s love each and every moment as you renew yourself right here and right now. Take time to be creative and invite the grace of the Gracious Spirit to fill you anew. See what bubbles up from deep within.
Center to awaken Hope in your life…
“Gracious Spirit, Fill me with your hope! So be it – Amen!”
“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).
Be filled with hope and share it with the world!

It's #JustBecauseDay - Some prayer-filled mindful self-care practices to minimize the anxieties of COVID-19 -> JUST BECAUSE WE CAN!
HAPPY #JustBecauseDay and welcome to our new blog! We've been working to update our web presence - and today, just because, we decided to get our our "COVID-19 - Some ideas that have helped us" page up and running on our website.
There is no question COVID-19 has and continues to stress us all in many different ways. So do we let COVID-19 take us down into anxiety, meaninglessness, guilt/condemnation, and despair? Or is there a different way?
We know there is a different way and it begins taking a deep breathe and then doing some prayer-filled mindfulness. Prayer-filled mindfulness is a bit different than other forms of mindfulness in that it not only calms but invites a call to renewed action - living life anew. And as it is #JustBecauseDay we invite you to take a few minutes and explore our COVID-19 prayer-filled mindful activities that includes scripture, prayer, walking a labyrinth, and celebrating the arts. Let us know what you did today just because - hopefully you took a little time for some prayer-filled mindful self-care!
Peace & Blessings!
