I fell in love with the practice of Spiritual Direction many years ago when my children were young. The space set aside just for me so touched my heart and drew me into a new relationship with God. After receiving direction for many years I began a two year course through Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction and earned my certificate as a Spiritual Director. I now have the privilege and honor of accompanying others on their journey of discovery.
Through the practice of Spiritual Direction, we set aside space, sacred and unhurried, for me to accompany you as you discover God's presence in the midst of the storms of life. The space offers a place where you can feel safe to share your joys, sorrows, doubts and fears and together we will invite the Spirit of God to reveal His presence in the midst of your life. Through the practice of reflection, silence, prayer, and questions, I help you to notice the stirrings of God right in the middle of the journey you are on. In this sacred and safe space we discover the Holy Spirit is present with you and is eager to meet you right where you are. Come find a space to be still and know that He is God.
Spiritual Direction helps you to discover light in the midst of your darkness.
Prior to your arrival, I will be in prayer for you inviting the Holy Spirit to be present during our time. Once you arrive, we will take some time to quiet ourselves and I will often begin our time with a verse or prayer. You will then be given space to prayerfully reflect on what you would like to talk about during the session. As you share, I am listening and praying, relying on the Holy Spirit to direct our conversation. I may ask questions that take you deeper, invite you to sit with the Lord after you have shared something, or echo back to you what I am hearing as you share what is on your heart. Through this time, I will not be giving you answers, but rather, helping you to discover what the Lord is revealing within you. This session is a time of discovery and rest for your soul.
A Spiritual Direction session usually occurs for a 1-hour session, once a month. I charge a fee on a sliding scale of $30-$50/session, based on what you are able to afford.
“The assumption of spirituality is that God is always doing something before I know it. So, the task is not to get God to do something I think needs to be done, but to become aware of what God is doing so that I can respond to, participate, and take delight in it.” –Eugene Peterson
