Picture Me’ Listening Experience
with Rebecca Madden
Our profession requires an on-going practice of effectively listening to others and without proper listening, we likely will not respond and communicate effectively and get the intended outcome.
Join us for a Listening Experience where we will learn & practice some simple guidelines for listening using a fun and creative journaling exercise called ‘Picture Me.’ This workshop will bring new insight into how we interact with others during 2:1 sessions within our profession. We will learn how to listen in a deeper way that requires us to say ‘NO’ to our normal habits of casual, conversational listening, so that we make room for better interactions with our students and staff.
As former Managing Director of onelifemaps.com, Rebecca Madden worked on the development of Listen to My Life materials to help people engage their life story – past, present and future, and through the years, she has lead many life story and listening retreats and experiences for professionals, lay leaders and ministers.

Rebecca grew up in SC and attended Clemson University. After graduation, she worked at IBM in Greenville, SC where she met her husband, Jay.
When Jay began to sense a call to full-time ministry, they moved with their two children to Chicago to be a part of Willow Creek Community Church. While there, Jay and Rebecca promoted connection, small groups and compassion in their community, and Rebecca worked on the development and rollout of Listen to My Life materials to help people engage their life story – past, present and future.
In 2009, the Maddens moved to Atlanta to be a part of Peachtree, and in 2012, Rebecca joined the staff as Connections Director overseeing visitors, new members, Fuller Seminary and the red dot initiative – connecting Peachtree people where they live for personal growth and community impact. Recently, Rebecca completed a two-year Christian Spiritual Formation certificate at the Renovaré Institute.
In addition to her passion for her community & spiritual growth, she is most passionate about loving her husband and their two children, Neale & William, and scrapbooking!
