Paul Bodley, FUMCFW Member and Staff Parish Relations Committee Lay Leader, had such a positive experience with the process that he decided to bring the workshop to our church. Paul said he believes the workshop will benefit anyone at any stage of life. “When I signed up for the Intensive Journal® Workshop led by Wally Chappell, I had no idea that a life-changing experience was about to take place,” he declared. “This is so much more than a class about journaling. It is about finding the insight and wisdom that lives (sometimes unknowingly) within us — and using a process to understand the flow of my life and where it might be taking me. Using what I’ve learned in the workshop has helped me work out issues, take action on my ideas, and enhance my relationship with God.”
Our own Senior Pastor Dr. Tim Bruster has benefited from the program as well. Although Dr. Bruster had used a journal periodically before, he said the method opened up new ways of thinking through issues and events. He and his wife, Susan, had recently suffered loss and illness in their families when they attended the workshop, so the timing was just right. “The Progoff™ method was immensely helpful to us,” Dr. Bruster recalled. “But, more than helping us with that time in our lives, it has continued to be a powerful way that is so much more than simply a diary of our activities. Perhaps we overuse the term ‘life-changing,’ but as I think about my experience, the term certainly fits.”
Everyone has their own reasons to seek change in their lives. Use the Intensive Journal Program to help you reach your goals along the way. Click here for more details.
