What is Spiritual Direction?



"As we have come to understand it, spiritual direction differs from moral guidance, psychological counseling, and the practice of confessional, preaching or healing ministries in that it directly assists individuals in developing and cultivating their personal relationships with God." William Barry and William Connally in The Practice of Spiritual Direction.


As a spiritul director it is my desire to assist you to pay attention to how God is revealing himself to you. Your presence in spiritual direction communicates that you have put your faith in God and that you desire a more intimate relationship with Him.  It shows a spirit  of humility and wisdom in that you are inviting a spiritual director along on your personal journey.  I am here to assist you, encourage you and pray with and for you as you seek a deeper relationship with God.


In the process of direction we will meet together in the presence of God and await His leading.  There will be times of silence as we await His direction as well as times of encouragement as we receive affirmation and direction  Together we will sit and consider God's movement.  It will be a sacred time.
