Jacci Turner has a passion for teaching contemplative prayer. She has great empathy for those whose spiritual disciplines have fallen short under the demands of life, and she longs to offer new tools for their toolbox. In her lifetime, she has worn many hats: therapist, school counselor, campus minister, spiritual director, and mom. Her favorite hats are her writer and grandmother hats, which come in wild colors and don’t fit too tightly. Jacci and her husband live in Nevada’s high desert and spend their mornings hiking through the sagebrush with their big yellow dog, Rocky.
IF YOU HAVE EVER WONDERED HOW TO ENRICH YOUR PRAYER LIFE, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
In this interview, Jacci shares the importance of focusing on spiritual formation and how contemplative prayer can help you stay connected to God and energize you when your faith feels dry. She offers a specific suggestion to enrich your prayer life, right now, starting with just a few minutes each day. And, she reminds us how important it is to keep our eyes from looking to the right or the left and instead just focus on the calling God has given to us.
I’ve intentionally shared this shorter episode as the holiday season is about to kick off here in the U.S. My hope for you—and me—is that we take time today to pause and remember the One who calls our hearts to Himself and asks us to find rest in Him. Enjoy this special interview with Jacci and, once you’ve heard it all the way through, let me know in the comments if you decide to give “The Examen” a try.
