Welcome! Here is what you need to know to get the most from this site.
First, watch as author Patricia Wilson introduces this unique spiritual resource.
MyQuietSpaces.org is written and curated by women to support and encourage busy women seeking quiet time with God. Inspired by Patricia Wilson’s book, Quiet Spaces: Prayer Interludes for Women, this site is intended to help you to the create the space for spiritual expression and faith practice that you crave. Whether you want a more focused prayer life, a new way to explore your spiritual journey, a chance to learn about spiritual writing, or a convenient place to find resources and ideas, we hope that MyQuietSpaces.org will become a treasured destination. The intimate relationship with God you’ve yearned for is well within your grasp.
Now follow these simple guidelines.
Look to our resource pages that feature sets of content by topical themes. You do not need the featured book to gain something from this site, but MyQuietSpaces.org is designed to boost your experience of each featured book, guiding you toward incorporating all you are learning into your daily life. Here is our current library.
We design each theme to be featured as part of a monthly set of practices in spiritual formation and renewal. These themes are developed with the idea of 4 weeks in mind and 4 sets of topics to discover each week. You will discover suggestions on how to explore that themed perspective, including 1. guidance for reflection, 2. ways to pray, 3. creative expression of your spiritual journey, and 4. suggestions for sharing your faith experience with others. Along with learning about the current practice being covered, you will want to look through the Previous Themes archive, which is rich with theme-based writing, videos, and other resources.
If you participate in a small-group study or online community, consider using MyQuietSpaces.org as a resource. You will find discussion questions and support materials to download.
My Quiet Spaces was created to be a place where women of different backgrounds and traditions could come together and take time to meet with God. While we always strive to use inclusive language for God and humanity on our website, we want the women who join us to use language that feels comfortable and natural to them. We ask that everyone be respectful of the views and opinions of others.
We hope you will find a genuine connection with God and other women through this website, including those who make this online community possible– our authors, contributors, and the many women of My Quiet Spaces.
