Ann Voskamp teaches us S.A.C.R.E.D., a daily habit, a compass, that will reorient our soul in relation to God through Scripture and prayer and study. This powerful spiritual practice that Ann unpacks in this study will become a directing compass through the hard seasons where it feels like there is no way – only to find we have a WayMaker making an unexpected way into the life we only dreamed of.
WayMaker - Session 1: Stillness to Know God
We start with S - Stillness. For those of us who are the frustrated, the disappointed, the irritated and the flat-out exasperated, let’s get really honest about where we really are and what we really want.

WayMaker - Session 5: Examine to Return to God
When you feel your heart curving in, that’s your sign to turn toward your cleft in the rock, your base, His Word. It is turning again and again toward healthy attachments that cure soul addictions and turn us in the direction of our soul’s true dreams. So, today we turn to the letter “E” in our S...
WayMaker - Session 6: Doxology to Thank God
Finally, D for Doxology, to thank God. No matter the days we feel like we’re lost in the wilderness, we can promise to keep stumbling back to wear a habit of gratitude—because thanksgiving gives us a way out of entitlement and judgment and control management, and gratefulness makes for a greater ...
