My friends,

What a year this has been! It has been a great honor to host the wisdom of so many thoughtful friends in this space these last six months. Good Ways is taking a break for the next month as I focus my vocational energy elsewhere, but my hope is to launch a new round in October. (If you are interested in submitting a post for the series, please contact me. I’d love to hear from you!)

If you are looking for a new practice for connecting with God, whatever season of life you’re in, take some time to read through the Good Ways archives (or pick up a copy of A Good Way Through). My hope in all that happens on this page is that we, together, would be motivated and inspired into action. We can read and think and talk all day about meeting God, but we are transformed best through practice. 

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
— Phillippians 4:8-9, The Message

If you’re looking for a bit more inspiration this month, I’ll be posting more of my own creative practices on Instagram (@agoodwaythrough) and Facebook (@kristenleighkludt), so join me in those spaces to continue the conversation. Or, even better—share about your own and tag me! I’d love to see what you’re up to.

I am so grateful for your presence in this space. It is an honor to have you.

With love,


P.S. Some things I love right now:
