I was trying to experiment tonight, with some superimposing magic-ness. I’m not ready for that. But while fiddling Jeff asked what my word was. “People.” “Well, I’m your every day people aren’t I?”
I enjoy a beautiful house and we both like to practice hospitality on at least a weekly basis. I would have loved posting a picture of our living room full of people. But tonight I have my every day people and he often gets sidelined for every week people I unfortunately deem more important. Tonight, I sign off quickly to invest in my every day person. A needed lesson and certainly needed time.
Who are your every day people? How are you investing in them?

Magdalene is a pursuer of all things beautiful, inviting others into a life with steady integration of all they say, think, act, eat, love, and enjoy--hopeful for a more centered, peaceful existence, both inside and out. Today, she offers spiritual direction, movement and yoga classes, and women’s retreats, incorporating contemplative Christian spiritual practices, contemporary and authentic movement, and the ancient way of yoga (with a fun side job of lifestyle and commercial photography). Past students and directees have joked that there are few others in the world as dedicated to boundaries, intentionality, rest, and weird voices as Maggie.
Magdalene grew up on a small organic sustainable farm in central Indiana, raised in a family of avid readers, generous doers, truth seekers, and good food lovers. Those early experiences laid a great foundation for further mind-body-soul integrative training at Hope College (BA in English and Arts Ministry), Fall Creek Abbey (Certified Spiritual Director), and BodyWorks Studio (200hr YTT).
If she’s doing exactly what she wants, you will probably find her on a porch, patio, or beach, drink in hand, dancing away or chatting about life and love and happiness with all her people, especially her partner Jeff and their three kiddos.
