Day of Reflection: Journaling for Better Days
March 15 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$65
Directed by Terresa Ford, MFA
Journaling for Better Days is a silent Day of Reflection that explores the use of scripture and journaling prompts to attain a deeper sense of self in relation to Jesus. These writing exercises will allow participants to take a deeper dive into what it means to be intimate with Jesus. Participants will pray with scripture and have time for personal journaling. There will also be opportunities to reflect and share writings. Space is limited to 22 participants. Be sure to bring your own journals.
