What words or labels shape your story? Learn how to let God's love shape how you feel about yourself and let go of guilt and shame as we step into a Christmas.

Join Bonnie in discovering how to prepare to make changes in the new year that last, as you celebrate Christmas this week.

Learn to breathe in God's love & hear His loving voice in a new way on today's show. Bonnie shares encouragement and key tips to renew your heart this Christmas no matter how diminished you may feel, with both science and scripture.

Pause in your day to breathe in God's love using a guided meditation in Josepha's journey in Matthew. You'll be guided through a contemplative practice, 'Lectio Divina,' to find that word or phrase God is whispering to reignite God's love in your heart.

Key Takeaways:

  • Breathe in Scripture: Be reminded of who God created you to be, and not what others have negatively imprinted into your life.

  • Breathe out Stress with Soul Care: Learn how to powerfully strengthen what God is saying to you afresh at the end of the year, preparing for the new year ahead. 

  • The Science: Learn about the competitive memory theory describes how each person has access to both positive and negative experiences. Learn how pathways in our brain -negative and positive feelings can grow weaker or stronger depending upon which we activate more.  


Breath Prayer: Inhale: "God is With Me" / Exhale: "I am God's delight."

Scripture: "No longer will you be called forsaken... you will be called My Delight" Is. 62:4-5

Join Bonnie as we unlock the secrets to nurturing God's love within, letting go of guilt and shame.
