SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

       Listening attentively together for the voice of God

"People who choose spiritual direction

do so because they want to pay closer attention to their relationship with God...

Typical spiritual direction questions are

"Where is God in this?" or

"Where has God gone and why don't I sense any divine presence at all?" or

"How am I being called to be Christlike?"

- Jeannette A. Bakke, Holy Invitations

What is Spiritual Direction like?  

       Spiritual direction provides a quiet space where we can slow down, become aware of God, and open up to His love.  We often orient ourselves by listening carefully to a passage of scripture.  Special attention is given to prayer and to what is happening between the directee and Christ - what is going well in the relationship, and where the difficulties lie.  Grief, confusion, sin, doubt, fear, anger, and feeling abandoned by God are all brought into the light of Jesus' presence. "Behold, I make all things new," says Christ (Rev 21:5).

        My training includes a two-year certificate in Spiritual Direction (Selah Spiritual Direction, LTI), Level II Healing Prayer training (Christian Healing Ministries), and a MA in pastoral counseling.

        Appointments are available in person and online. Contact me via the email address below.  I would love to hear from you and listen to your story.  You are deeply loved by God!

"I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope." 

Psalm 103:5
