Come together with other adults in a powerful group process of responding to literature and poetry with your own journal writing. 


No writing experience necessary.

Each monthly LifeSPEAKS group workshop is guided by Jennie Linthorst to inspire insight, self-awareness, and fresh hope. Jennie listens deeply without judgment, and offers a safe space to express yourself. Through guided writing and readings, Jennie offers compassionate coaching as you begin the process of writing your own stories.


Jennie's group was one of the best things I have ever done in finding out who lives inside of me.” – Greg L.


"A brilliant process. It helped me discover, clarify, and validate a profound life experience. I learned something invaluable about myself. Such a blessing." 
- Bonnie W.
