  • Each week, I will provide for you a practical challenge of something I do in my home that makes it more of a haven.  I hope you will take the challenges.  They do make a difference!
  • Each weekday, we will pause, give thanks, pray and meditate on God’s Word through SOAKing in the daily scripture reading for the day.
  • This journal gives you a daily reflection, a daily prayer already written for you and space for journaling your thoughts on the verse of the day.
  • There is also space in the journal for your weekly gratitude list and prayer requests.
  • Also, you will find 4 videos, one per week (every Saturday), that correspond with the scriptures we are studying.

This study begins on Saturday, October 1st!

Here’s the Topic Schedule:

Week 1: When You Feel Discouraged

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

Challenge for the Week: Start a daily gratitude list AND go buy an extra-large candle and light a candle everyday in your home.  Each time the glimmer of the candle catches your eye, stop, pray and give thanks.

Week 2: When You Feel Like Giving Up

Do not grow weary in doing good.
2 Thessalonians 3:13

Challenge for the Week: Keep your candle going and add to it soft music everyday in your home.  Choose worship, classical or another form of peaceful music that helps you focus on the Lord.

Week 3: Hold on to Your Faith

In all circumstances take up the shield of faith,
with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one.
Ephesians 6:16

Challenge for the Week: Keep your candle burning, the music playing and purchase a small bouquet of flowers for yourself.  Let that bouquet be a daily reminder of God’s love  and presence with you.

Week 4: Hold on to Hope

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
   he who watches over you will not slumber;
Psalm 121:1-3

Challenge for the Week: Rest is a need not a want.  Rest is not optional and it is a blessing from the Lord.  So, seek out a place of solitude to rest and pray. Get alone with God outside or in your home.  Be still with God and take a much needed bubble bath, nap or still time with the Lord.
