Spiritual Direction

Walking alongside one another in prayer, listening, and discernment for where God is at work and how we can partner with Him in it. 

More and more we struggle to carve out time to be still and to be silent when it is what we desperately need most. 

Direction creates a space to hear and to be heard, to process and to ponder, to reflect and to re-familiarize ourself with the voice of God.

About the 1-on-1 Process

Although each session can be quite different from one to the next, the rhythm of direction is as follows:

I open our time with Scripture. I pray. You share. I listen. We pray silently. We listen. And we consider. Maybe more silence. Maybe more prayer.

It’s really quite open ended. We enter will willing hearts and the Holy Spirit guides as He wills, and we seek to be faithful to follow.

About the Group Direction Process

You can expect each session to start with 10 minutes of settling in, 5 minutes in devotion & prayer, 15 minutes for first lady to share, 5 minutes to hold sharer in our hearts and in silent prayer, 15 minutes for offerings and engagement with sharer, and finally 3 minutes to pray for the sharer. We will repeat this approximate 40 minute process for 2nd/3rd/4th sharer.

About the Retreat Planning Process

Retreats are like my favorite thing. I highly recommend them! If you’ve never been on one before, I would be honored to help you plan it. Dedicating extended time for silence and solitude with the Lord is precious and necessary for communion and intimacy with Him.  I am determined to help create a retreat plan that will bless you and your relationship with Jesus no matter what your life circumstances are.

Retreat Planning

Retreats are like my favorite thing.  As we know, Jesus got away often to quiet places to connect with the Father.  If you’ve never been on one before, I would be honored to help you plan it. Dedicating extended time for silence and solitude with the Lord is precious and necessary for communion and intimacy with Him.  I am determined to help create a retreat plan that will bless you and your relationship with Jesus no matter what your life circumstances are.

Insights about direction…

Brenda Darby

This is a time to experience the wonders of the mystery. It is a quiet space. It is a sacred place.  It’s a time to explore. This is the journey to the garden of our heart. It is a time to learn who we are and what we can become. This is Spiritual Direction and I continue to be amazed.

I continue to be amazed and surprised at how God makes his presence known through the listening ministry of spiritual direction. In our modern practices of Christian faith, we tend to talk about God rather than invite others into life with him. I get to wait in wonder with another soul to see how God will reveal himself in our midst.

Growing in awareness of God’s continual invitations back to his heart of love has been my favorite gift of spiritual direction. The space created in spiritual direction allows us to pay attention to those invitations and to respond, not alone, but alongside a trusted companion.

As a licensed mental health professional I am always encouraged after a spiritual direction session. Direction guides me right to Jesus and always reminds me to experience Him with my heart and not just my mind.

What is most amazing to me is the exponential and systemic graces experienced through the spiritual discipline of spiritual direction. This is why Nuos Formation focuses on spiritual direction with organizational and business leaders who bring the fruit of their relationship with Christ into the ways they lead and develop others. It’s such a joy see Christian business leaders transformed into powerful shepherds and stewards of their ventures.
