35 days to deeper prayer on the journey through the middle years

Question:

Are you in the middle years looking for something "more"?
Do regrets keep you from being happy and peaceful?
Is "letting go" something that attracts you but remains illusive?


When people reach their midlife years, something happens.
Though we can practice the “lessons” of midlife earlier as young adults
midlife has truly begun when something outside of our control 
has rearranged the furniture of our lives, so to speak,
and “left us out of the picture.” 

We are no longer who we were
we are not yet who we will be.

Almost universally those in these middle years and even beyond 
ask for guidance in how to pray.

I believe there is a special midlife way of praying.
In fact, the middle years become truly satisfying only through a deeper prayer.

And this prayer is available to anyone who wants it.

Prayer, in these middle years, leads to the inner alignment of all our spiritual resources
with the work of God that is unfolding in our lives.

The 35 daily emails of Midlife: A Simple Path will nourish you along the way.

At midlife, we're thirsting for that connection to the Fountain of Living Water that Jesus offers us.
We're also in the middle of busy and often complicated lives.

Which is why I created Midlife: A Simple Path.

This Midlife Path will help you discover God's love for you and direct your gaze to Jesus. You will explore the struggles of midlife and the powerful promise that God is here for you. The path will open up avenues for you where you hope to move on and show you the awesomeness of a live where Christ is set loose to fill you with joy.

Each day you will receive a short psalm for prayer, 2 paragraphs of reflection, and a thought to carry you through the day.

Start on your midlife journey of prayer today. It's my gift to you!
