Spiritual formation is simply a journey in drawing nearer to God and being transformed by His love.
My desire is for our lives to be fully integrated with our faith so that we settle into a rhythm of finding God in all things. More and more we live disconnected and distanced lives. We are in desperate need of the Spirit to move and for faith to see, hear, and respond.
The spiritual practice of direction is a tool for the purpose of formation. It creates a space to intentionally consider God’s activity in our life and days in order that we can better partner with the Spirit in our formation.
The purpose of this site is to provide resources and invitations to connect with God, learn to abide in Him more fully, and find greater freedom and joy in your walk with Him. I pray you are blessed!
A practice in which you sit with a trained listener and co-discern God’s activity, voice, and invitation in your life.
Why Spiritual Direction?
We often struggle in the art of listening. Setting aside time each month to sit with a trained listener one-on-one or in a group can encourage us on the journey of becoming more familiar with God’s voice in our life and listen for Him on behalf of another.
How comfortable are we with silence in our life? We tend to resist it and fill our days with all sorts of noise without even realizing it. However, it’s so very necessary for our communion with Jesus, our discernment of the Spirit, and to be truly cared for by the Father in the deepest places of our heart.
Stopping can be difficult. We may feel twinges of guilt when we long for it. But, to still our mind and body is crucial for formation. To let the world fall away and enter into stillness with the Lord is where we will experience the greatest of loves.
We were not created to live this life alone. God Himself declared it not to be good. To have a spiritual companion on the journey toward abiding in Christ can be invaluable for the soul.
Ready For More?
If your heart is longing for more of Jesus, to feel connected with Him and to hear from Him, then you’re in the right place. Welcome.

First of all, what is self-talk? A quick google search for the definition of self-talk will tell us that it’s “talk or thoughts directed at oneself.” I want you to notice that last part - directed at oneself. If we pause for a...
