  1. I always think of myself as a fairly ordered person – then I clicked the link to Tom Neal’s blog because I was intrigued by the quote you shared. WOW!!!! I think I am leading a life of dissipation………not sure where this will lead, but thank you ladies for bringing that message from the Holy Spirit to me.

    1. Right? The image of a helter skelter dissipated life resonated with me deeply, too, and came at the right moment for me when I first read it. So grateful for Dr. Neal’s words and wisdom. Thanks for listening and sharing your feedback. Thankful for you, Ginger!

  2. Enjoyed this podcast very much! Thank you! “Resistant to routine” Hmmm…. guilty!
    Living with gratitude is the key,
    Routines like prayer time are the “invisible architecture” of our lives. All thoughts that resonated with me.

    1. Hi Jenny! Great to see your response here. Thank you for listening and providing feedback. Thinking about prayer in terms of the foundational building blocks of our life is a powerful image, isn’t it? I’m glad it resonated with you as it did Rachel and me.
