pull away to a quiet space
2020 was like a thief in the night.
Many of us were caught off-guard and our lack of control over the circumstances has left us reeling.
The truth is we will never truly be in control of what happens, yet we can be intentional and create moments of stillness to bring calm.
By creating space for a personal reflection time, we can recharge our batteries and gain clarity and courage to move forward.
SitAWhile Live Amazed invites you into a quiet space with relaxing piano music and guided reflections.
With microphones on mute and no video, it is the perfect setting for introverts, and well needed quiet time for extroverts.
This will be an oasis in the middle of an increasingly stressful and competitive pace.
Look up, look back and look ahead
Designed in 3 parts you will go through a journey to look up, look back then look ahead.
In part one you look up and see that all things are possible because, with God, all things are possible.
In part two, you take a short peak over your shoulder and look back at the clues you’ve left behind and where you made a mark.
The third session gives you space to look ahead and identify how you want to be intentional and make your mark.
This is not about having the full plan, it is about your next steps.
and live AMAZED
For this special online retreat, SitAWhile is partnering with Carla Lake, author of Live Amazed: Embracing the Gifts of God in Longing, Loss, and Life.
We will be inspired by the audio version of two chapters from Live Amazed set to gentle piano music composed by Shaunelle.
Live Amazed encourages us to look beyond ourselves and savor God’s unending goodness, love, mercy, and power. Through scripture and real-life struggles, these daily reflections remind us to lean into God and embrace what is already ours through Christ.
Hear a sneak peak below from the chapter, How to find peace when life feels abnormal.
Carla is a testimony of how God works in the ordinary, so we can live amazed everyday!

This is 50-60min of pause * There will be no talking while I share my gentle piano music over Zoom * You create your own quiet space in a way that you are comfortable * Then ease back into your day, recharged.
This is for you if you want to be more intentional and create a space to pause and be still.
Register now, space is limited!
Honestly, I had to be intentional to stay afloat
“The uncertainty of life hit me in a weird kind of way in 2020; I realized that I had to be super intentional and find that quiet space to keep my courage levels up.”
~Shaunelle, retreat host
