I wrote 15 brief reflections on ways you can begin again. Each entry has a journaling prompt and lines for you to add your thoughts. Go through these reflections on your own, with a partner, or in a group, and use them as a way to promote deep discussion. Here’s a sneak peek of a few entries: Begin Again by Surrendering, Begin Again by Tending, Begin Again by Burning It Down. {sizzle}

Best of all, starting on Monday, there are 15 weekdays left in Lent, so you can use this as a Lenton devotional on your own or with your tender tribe. What’s not to love!?!

Simply enter your information on the site pop-up and the pdf will be delivered right to your inbox!

As I said, you guys are a bunch of sacred warriors, in the trenches, learning what it means to begin again. Killin’ it.

Love upon love,



*So many thanks to photographer extraordinaire Katie Gardner who is responsible for the images of me throughout the site.
