Lectio Divina at Today’s Christian Woman



I’ve enjoyed over a decade of newspaper reporting (off and on), a couple years of inching my way into the freelance writing industry, and many rejections (okay, I haven’t enjoyed those so much.) But one of my goals has been to have an accepted query letter, accepted manuscript and published story in a widely distributed magazine.

Well today’s that day! Today’s Christian Woman published an article I wrote called Lectio Divina: God’s Word for Us. I guess I have my Sunday School teacher, Matt Simpson, to thank for taking us through the book Invitation to a Journey by M. Robert Mulholland Jr. If it hadn’t been for that book, I wouldn’t even have a clue what Lectio Divina is, let alone write an article about my experience with it 😉

I am so excited to have seen one of my writing goals met, and to be in such a great magazine is an honor.

I’d love for you to read the story here. And while you’re at TCW read some other stuff too. They’re always posting great new articles. (My link takes you to the article, but I think you have to have a subscription to the online magazine to read beyond the first page.)

I am a contributor at CT Women (previously known as Today's Christian Woman where I was a regular contributor as well). I blog monthly at and have freelanced for a variety of publications including Chicken Soup for the Soul, Guideposts, Thriving Family and Creation Illustrated. Cancer made an unwelcome visit in my breast in January 2016, and I am now working on a book about breast reconstruction after having gone through the insane process myself. My incredible husband of 18 years, Corey, is my biggest writing cheerleader and together we are having a ball raising our three growing boys; Carter 15, Owen 14 and Lewis 10.

  1. I had never heard of Lectio Divina either, until this year, when I began a Bible Study in my church that used this approach. I will be continuing to study scripture this way all summer until the fall Bible study~ I love it!
