“The Intentional Year” by Holly and Glenn Packiam

This spring, I picked up a book called The Intentional Year by Holly and Glenn Packiam and was instantly refreshed in how I wanted to spend the rest of my year. In short, this faith-based book walks you through setting rhythms in your life that help you focus on areas of:

  • Prayer
  • Rest
  • Renewal
  • Relationships
  • Work

For Type-A personalities like myself, I enjoyed the organizational aspects as well as making space for spiritual practices like Sabbath rest and cultivating a deeper prayer life that you won’t find in typical goal setting books.

Five Key Spheres of Life

Here are a few examples from each section of the book that I can’t wait for you to explore in our Book Club next month!

1. Prayer

For example:

  • Psalm praying
  • the P-R-A-Y prayer
  • Silence
  • Lectio Divinia

2. Rest

Setting aside time for a weekly Sabbath in addition to:

  • Preparing for your time of rest
  • Restful and Spirit-focused activities list
  • Activities to cease during Sabbath

3. Renewal

Habits to take care of your body and mind. Specifically:

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Mental health
  • Emotions

4. Relationships

Cultivating healthy practices such as:

  • Spiritual friendships
  • Self-awareness, empathy, and differentiation
  • Trust, tension, and true intimacy
  • Healthy boundaries

5. Work

Finally, discerning your calling and mission through:

  • Glorifying God
  • Creating good in the world
  • Doing what brings you joy

In addition to exploring these different areas of intention in our lives, the authors help you implement these ideas into an actionable plan. They even walk you through daily, monthly, quarterly and yearly goals!
