do you feel distant from god?
You're not alone.
Hi! My name is Sophie and I’m a mom of four kids ages 2 to 11.
I know exactly how it feels to be overwhelmed by life and distant from God.
Until recently, my hectic-by-necessity lifestyle led to distance from God. I was doing All The Things for All The People, but I felt dry and parched. I wanted to hear from God, but I didn't remember how.
The worst part is that I was too busy to obtain the one thing I needed most—loving reminders from the Holy Spirit. It was a catch-22 and I had no idea how I was going to break the cycle.
have you experienced that feeling?
If you’re discouraged, wish I could reach through the computer screen, hand you a fresh cup of tea, and tell you: You’re not alone. And there’s hope.
You can still be a busy woman and find time to spend with Jesus. It doesn't have to be one or the other.
After walking through that dry season, I took a step back and reevaluated my priorities. I read book after book about finding and connecting with God. I practiced meditation, prayer, Bible study, fasting, and rest. I talked to people whom I look up to spiritually and asked them to spill their secrets.
Finding the time to just be with Jesus wasn’t easy, but it was necessary.
Once I had a better understanding of spiritual disciplines, I slowly started taking small steps to be with Jesus.
My life began to change. I started resting in Christ again. I began to experience His peace. I grew closer to God in the middle of my busy life. Today, I still have four kids with me all day, competing for my attention.
We still experience accidents and mishaps, schedules and interruptions. I still face the same stressful challenges I faced a few years ago.
Nevertheless, today, my life is oriented around Jesus. I can rest in Christ when things are busy and stressful, or when they don’t go the way I’d like. He continues to change me from the inside out.
I know that there’s no way I can go back to the haphazard way I approached my faith before. And this year, in 2019, I want to help you experience the same joy.
I’m helping a group of other busy women grow toward Christ, step by step, in 2019.
I know you’re busy. However, the busier you are, the more you need Christ’s peace. Will you let me guide you through the steps that changed my life?
Will you join our group of women who want to experience Jesus in 2019?
ready to get started?

journeying toward jesus
a spiritual growth roadmap for busy women
This isn’t your ordinary Bible study.
It’s like a women’s retreat: playful, supportive, and deeply encouraging.
The Journeying Toward Jesus program comes right to your email each week (no travel required!), every week, through the end of 2019. The activities only take a few minutes each day, and you’re free to complete them on your own time—whether that’s 5 AM, a lunch break, 11 PM, or anytime in-between.
By the end of 2019, you’ll more deeply understand God's love, peace, and grace each day.
Afraid you won’t have time? I get it! I’ll personally help you find a way to fit time with Jesus into your busy schedule.
When I felt overwhelmed, I didn’t even have time to breathe. If you feel the same way, don’t worry.
During your first week of this study, I will personally guide you through finding a few moments each day with Jesus. Even if you’re busy.
Here’s what else to expect:
Weekly roadmap: Every week, I’ll email you an activity designed to draw you closer to God. No extra research, no wondering what to read or do next—all the instructions will be in your email, worry-free.
Friendly group: I’ve created a private Facebook group exclusively for this program. Everyone is welcome to share new ideas and cheer each other on. It will also be a safe place to ask questions and post prayer requests.
Solid topics: Each month focuses on a single topic. These are thoughtfully selected to guide you to Christ. Struggling to worship in everyday moments? Feeling lost when reading your Bible? We talk about it!
We dive into the Bible and deepen our relationships with the Lord. We lean into our identity as Christ-followers. We explore how His grace and peace affect the chaos of life.
By the end, you’ll feel refreshed, free, and in love with your Saviour again.
Even if your life is (still) busy.
Annual memberships are now 25% off
Are you ready to reignite your faith in practical ways?
If you’re ready to join, fantastic! When you join Journeying To Jesus, you get access to a year's worth of weekly devotionals centered around spiritual disciplines.
You will immediately have access to all of the weeks that are already available thus far in 2019, and you will start receiving weekly emails until the end of the year. Follow through in order or pick the topics that interest you most and start with those.
Curious about what we’ll study?
Here are the topics we'll cover each month:
I love free stuff.
That’s why I filled Journeying Toward Jesus study with free stuff.
Here are some of the goodies I’m giving members:
More than anything, I want every woman who joins the Journeying Toward Jesus program to absolutely love the time they spend with us. My desire is to help busy women connect with Jesus in the most loving and encouraging environment possible.
If you join the annual program and decide within 30 days—for any reason at all—that it is not a great fit for you, just let me know and I will refund your tuition, no questions asked.
How much time can I expect to spend daily on activities?
The activities are designed to be finished within 10-20 minutes each day.
However, they’re flexible to your lifestyle.
The purpose of this group is to provide fulfilling time with Christ for busy women. Some women may only need a few minutes to feel filled with His Spirit, while others may desire an hour or more. If you aren’t sure you have even 10-20 minutes a day, don’t worry: in our first week together, I’ll help you find 10-20 minutes in your day for time with Christ.
If you’re still unsure whether the program is for you, feel free to send me a message on Facebook or drop me an email. I’ll be glad to answer any questions.
How will I find quiet moments to do the exercises? I'm with my kids all day.
I totally get that. I'm a homeschooling mom of four kids (ages 1-11), so I know how precious a few quiet moments can be!
In our first week together, I’ll walk with you through creatively discovering time with Jesus in your unique schedule.
Even when I’m busy, I’ve found there are almost always activities that can give a little time to Jesus. Sometimes they’re hard to find. Sometimes it takes a couple tries to find a solution that clicks. But no matter how packed your schedule may be, we will find a way for you to enjoy time with the Lord.
I'm more of an introvert. What if I'm not comfortable discussing these things with strangers?
I'm an introvert, too.
And I agree: Sharing things freaks me out sometimes.
In this group, you are free to share as much or as little as you like. You don’t have to participate in the Facebook community at all, and I’ll completely understand.
However, if you would like to join our discussion, our group will be a completely safe environment. You may actually find it easier to engage in discussions around these personal topics with an online group: None of us know each others’ families or friends, personal history, in-laws, or children's’ teachers.
