About The Guided Life

Welcome – I’m Jackie Trottmann founder of The Guided Life and international author of : God Notes - Daily Doses of Divine Encouragement and The Freedom to EAT - 10 Secrets for Lasting Weight Loss and Inner Peace.

I didn’t always live The Guided Life, a life guided by God. If anything, I spent a majority of my life misguided!

Like so many of us, I was guided by the outward stuff: success in career, success in accumulating possessions, always stressing and striving. Our success-centered culture rewards us in all of the “stuff,” right?

Guided By The Outside Influences

On the outside I achieved material success. On the inside, however, I felt spiritually bankrupt. I also carried a LOT of emotional baggage from the past that weighed down my body, mind, and spirit.

A Life Guided By God

My life is now richer than it’s ever been. I have a lighter body (literally), mind, and spirit. That’s because I decided to let go and let God love me, lead me, and guide me.

I don’t know where this path will lead. I just know that I am finally on the right path.

You have a path too. It’s a path that is unique to you. What’s NOT unique are the challenges we all face: Fear, worry, doubt, setbacks, anxiety, overwhelm, and fatigue, to name a few. But we also share the same: Joy, fulfillment, peace, accomplishment, victories, and freedom when we let God love us, lead us, and guide us.

So, are you ready to live a life guided by God?

The resources offered below will get you started and keep you going!

Here's How to Get Started to Live The Guided Life

Book: God Notes - Daily Doses of Divine Encouragement

During a month-long prayer retreat, I asked God to give me a word. That word was Believe. After that experience, I pulled 365 words from the Bible and God continued to give me inspiration. These words weren't just meant for me. They were meant for you. Read what others are saying, the intro and to purchase. Keep worry and fear away with one word a day. God Notes - Daily Doses of Divine Encouragement.

FREE The Guided Life Email

The Guided Life is a weekly email delivered to your inbox that includes stories, Scripture, and encouragement to live a life guided by God. I share my journey of faith, leaving the corporate world behind to pursue what God has put on my heart through writing. Also, each Monday I send a Scripture verse with an image to hold onto throughout the week. I love hearing from my readers.

What secrets do you have? Emotional and spiritual weight that you carry (shame, regret, abuse, addictions) can be much heavier than pounds reflected on a scale. Lose it all by finding freedom. Read the first two chapters to see if they resonate with you as I share my secrets and the secrets to letting it all go.
