Mindful Christian Year offers ideas and inspiration for those seeking the presence of Jesus in the present moment.

I’m Karen Twinem. I created this blog when I could not find a Christian mindfulness daybook to help me along the path. Others, especially stressed-out Christians, are welcome to come along so we can all better experience Jesus in daily life.

Who am I? A practicing Christian affiliated with the Vineyard movement. A contemplative charismatic. A person who enjoys liturgy and follows the Christian calendar. Someone who practices Christian mindfulness. I’ve been a Christian since childhood and developed this practice, hopefully under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, over the past 25 years. I live on the outskirts of a large city in the American Midwest.

What Would Jesus Say?

Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day.

Matthew 6: 34b

Abide in me, and I in you.

John 15:4

Don’t you know that you are God’s temple and that God’s spirit dwells in your midst?

John 14:20

Let’s build something together.
