Spiritual Direction: Spiritual direction is the act of paying attention to Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit. Together, spiritual director and directee meet in the presence of the Holy Spirit, to look, listen, discern, and move closer to the heart of the Holy Trinity. Within this sacred relationship, the spiritual director encourages the directee to develop a deeper life with Christ. Just as a personal trainer at a gym helps a person’s body stretch and grow, a spiritual director helps a person’s heart and soul stretch and grow in areas of life with Christ. This is not a counseling, discipling, coaching, or mentoring relationship. My role is rather to pray with and for you as you journey with Jesus. Like a driver changing lanes, there are blind spots of which to be aware. The spiritual director’s role, like mirrors, maps, and traffic signals, enables you to notice and traverse the terrain of your own heart and soul, as you journey with Jesus. My role is to pray with and for you, ask attentive questions, and perhaps suggest resources, so you may discern the Holy Spirit’s daily work and invitations in your life.
Spiritual director background: Throughout my adult life, I have been involved in some form of ministry, both within parachurch and church organizations. My ministry is caring for the heart and soul of God’s people. For many years, I taught elementary school. I am a certified Christian life coach. At Denver Seminary, I completed a two-year certificate program in Christian Formation and Soul Care.
My commitment to you: I commit to grow attentively and prayerfully with Christ both within my own life and for your life. Through a deepening relationship with Jesus, accompanied by spiritual holy habits and spiritual formation, I will focus intensely and joyfully on Christ. I will submit myself to a spiritual director for myself, as well as to a Spiritual Director Supervisor, to keep my own heart and soul and spiritual direction practice whole and holy and healthy.
Our time together: Our time together will last approximately sixty minutes once a month. We can meet over Skype, on the phone, or in person, if you live in my area.
