A Soul Storying Christmas: A Personal Retreat
for the 12 Days of Christmas

We spend so much time anticipating and preparing for Christmas Day that it often feels like a letdown come December 26th. But Christmastide (also known as The 12 Days of Christmas) gives us plenty of days to celebrate and linger over the birth and Incarnation of Jesus.

If you want opportunities to connect with God during Christmas instead of feeling like it passed you by with little-to-no recognition of the magnitude of this celebratory season, make time to embark on a personal retreat every day of Christmastide from December 25, 2018 through January 5, 2019 that you can do from anywhere when it’s convenient for you.

All proceeds from sales of A Soul Storying Christmas will be donated to Christ Health Center. Read about Christ Health Center’s purpose and mission here. Read about their new Behavioral Health Center opening in April 2019 here.


Every morning from 12/25/18-1/5/19, you will receive:

  • A lectio divina recording using a Scripture from the Revised Common Lectionary for that day

  • Prayer prompts

  • Journaling prompts

  • Celebration prompts

For $5.99, you will be able to sign up yourself and an additional person (if you so choose) for A Soul Storying Christmas: A Personal Retreat for the 12 Days of Christmas while supporting the mission and purpose of Christ Health Center.

Signing up is easy:

  1. Go here to purchase the personal retreat.

  2. Provide your email address and an additional email address (if applicable) during checkout. *Email addresses submitted for A Soul Storying Christmas will only be used for the 12-day retreat emails.

  3. Receive an email every day of Christmastide with resources that will help you celebrate the season.
