Journeying Toward Jesus
How to grow toward Christ even when life is busy-beyond-belief
do you feel distant from god?
You're not alone.
Hi! My name is Sophie and I’m a mom of four.
I know exactly how it feels to be overwhelmed by life and distant from God.
I mean, really: Four. Kids.
My hectic-by-necessity lifestyle led to distance from God.
I missed quiet time after quiet time.
I no longer felt God’s comforting arms wrapped around me.
One day, I realized, “I’ve lost my closeness with Jesus—and I don’t know how to go back.”
have you experienced that feeling?
If you’re discouraged, wish I could reach through the computer screen, hand you a fresh cup of coffee, and tell you: You’re not alone. And there’s hope.
Even though life is still crazy today, I’ve shaken off hopelessness.
After walking through that dry season, I reclaimed my sweet moments with Jesus.
Finding time to just be with Jesus wasn’t easy.
With four kids—all under 10 years old, at the time—are you kidding me? It was as easy as juggling, while riding a unicycle, while balancing on a tightrope, while reminding someone not to fight with their brother. It was not easy.
But I desperately needed to be with my Savior. I created a strategy, and I cross-examined my schedule. Slowly, one day at a time, I took 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 last year.
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 share this joy with others.
I’m helping a group of other busy-beyond-belief 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 Savior again.
Even if your life is (still) busy.
Are you ready to sit with Jesus each day, soaking up His peace?
If you’re ready to join, fantastic! Welcome to our group. There are two ways to sign on:
If you’d prefer to start small, you can sign up for only the first three months (like a trial period). At the end of those three months, you’ll be welcome to renew your membership and keep studying with the group.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to sign up for the whole year now, go ahead!
You can select one of the two choices below.
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 or seasonal 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.
