Restoring love
to Christian living

Your invitation

Hello friend!

My name is Alena (Ah-lean-ah). 

I’ve spent my life seeking the Lord and how to love like Jesus. 

Life is messy, especially when you’re seeking the right way to follow him in the midst of religious legalism, a broken heart, and a flood of conflicting opinions. I’ve spent a lot of time sorting through the confusion and chaos to find the peace and presence of God. I believe he’s called me to dedicate the rest of my life to inviting people into his love and helping them wholeheartedly love him in return. 

If you’re also searching for the best and most fulfilling way to live your life, I invite you to journey with me. Let’s laugh and cry and ask questions that expand the God-box together. Let’s search the Bible for his answer to our problems, and trust he is bigger and more beautiful than we could ever hope, dream, or imagine. 

I am a voice crying out in the desert for like-minded believers to come together in wholehearted pursuit of the Lord and living life his way, where everything matters and everything is spiritual. Loving God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, is both an instantaneous choice and a lifelong process. We take it one step, one day at a time. The little mini-epiphanies make a big difference.

I hope you’ll seek him with me. May the Lord circumcise our hearts and turned them to gold. (Deut 30:6; Rev 3:18)
Your voice, and your healing matter. I invite you to the family. Our experience won’t be as rich without you by our side.

With love,


Wholehearted follower of Jesus

A voice cries:
“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”

Isaiah 40:3

Return to Love

Restoring the Heart of Christianity

Go on a Journey to Wholehearted Love

God is inviting you to return to love. If you say yes, he will use every season of your life to transform you and fill your heart with gold, especially your desert seasons. He will use the rollercoasters of life to build your faith in his faithfulness. He says you are worthy and wanted, no matter what you’ve done. He deeply delights in you. 

In my first book, I will expand your God-box with mini-epiphanies and help you embrace spirituality over religion – through wholeheartedly embracing the Golden Rule: loving God and loving others as we love ourselves.


mini-epiphanies for spiritual living

Be Inspired. Live Wholeheartedly. Seek Jesus.

True, authentic Christian living happens beyond the boundaries of church and religion. Inspirations from God come in flashes of insight when we are doing life.

In the Miniphanies® podcast, I reflect on my experiences as a spiritual mentor, entrepreneur, and follower of Jesus. I love sharing ancient truths in relatable ways, inspired by everyday experiences.

I hope these simple ah-ha moments, aka. mini-epiphanies,  will inspire you to live with intention, pursue a meaningful relationship with Jesus, laugh and cry and get back up after even the biggest mistakes, and remind you that God is in all things- and still good, even when our world is a mess.

“A few years back during a church retreat I was leading at Ghost Ranch in northern New Mexico, I had a casual conversation with a conference attendee. That attendee was Alena Van Dyke, and I must confess that after a few more conversations with her, I felt a bit like John the Baptist when Jesus came to be baptized. I felt Alena needed to be leading the conference so I could soak up her wisdom.”
