Formation Foundations


Formation Foundations

November 27 - December 22, 2023

Formation Foundations will help you...

    • LEARN about different spiritual practices and spiritual formation resources that you can fold into your own intentional life of faith . Learn how to make the most of your Sacred Ordinary Days planner as the Liturgical year begins.
    • PRACTICE your faith daily, weekly, and seasonally. You will be able to lay (or bolster up) a strong spiritual formation foundation by clearing the space for your new spiritual practices to deepen..
    • SHARE your experience with people who speak the same language. You'll get to know the other members of our community, who are some of the wisest, most interesting, super fun, and most real people I know, by following along on Instagram or Facebook or inside our free Sacred Ordinary Days Community.

So, each week from November 27 - December 22, 2023

  • We'll create and link to below with something to MEDITATE on or LEARN from. It'll be content we create and then share in pieces on Instagram and in our Facebook. We'll link to every post here at the bottom of the page as it goes up. You'll notice there aren't any comments here on the blog. That's because we believe conversation is best in the context of relationship! Join us in our free Sacred Ordinary Days Community to respond to the posts and have conversations with other members of our community there.
  • We'll invite you to RESPOND and PRACTICE alongside our kindreds. You can respond on social media using #formationFOUNDATIONS. As you share, tag us @SacredOrdinaryDays on Instagram & Facebook, please. Or, join the conversation inside our free Sacred Ordinary Days Community.

Will you share what you’re learning and working out in your own life along this journey? You can share the following photos on social media to invite your friends.
