The intent of spiritual direction is to create safe spaces so that you can explore your questions with God and lay out your concerns as you seek discernment about your life and find ways to listen to Him intentionally.
A Christian spiritual director has been trained as a listener to accompany you as you share about your spiritual journey- its ups and downs, helping you notice God’s fingerprints in your life and His activity along the way.
Spiritual direction is not counseling, coaching or therapy. It is meant to compliment rather than compete with these other vital ministries.
As a spiritual director in spiritual care, I can:
- Listen with you as you seek God’s face and presence
- Keep open a safe space for you – God’s love, care and constancy through all of the ups and downs of life’s circumstances.
- Continually lift you before God when you struggle with issues that aren’t solved quickly or easily – logistics, planning, life circumstances or whatever else you might be facing.
- Celebrate God’s work of transformation with you and for you.
- Value you and love you in Christ and enjoy giving you that gift in Jesus name.
- Pray continually, giving thanks and walk alongside you in the process.
- Help you look for ways to shed shame, fear and anger or others stumbling blocks in your life.
- Find freedom, peace and calm as you develop more and more Sacred Moments

The Welcome Prayer by Thomas Keating
Welcome, welcome, welcome
I welcome everything that comes today, because I know it is for my healing.
I welcome all thoughts, feelings, emotions, situations, and conditions.
I let go of my desire for power and control.
I let go of my desire for affection, esteem, approval and pleasure.
I let go of my desire for survival and security.
I let go of my desire to change any situation, condition, person or myself.
I open to the love and presence of God and God’s action within.
