“Spiritual direction takes place when two people agree to give their full attention to what God is doing in one of their lives and seek to respond in faith… Whether planned or unplanned, three convictions underpin these meeting: (1) God is always doing something: an active grace is shaping this life into mature salvation; (2) responding to God is not sheer guesswork: the Christian community has acquired wisdom through the centuries that provides guidance; (3) each soul is unique: no wisdom can simply be applied without discerning the particulars of this life, this situation.”
“Spiritual direction is spiritual discipline that has played a part in the lives of numerous Christians, and, like other Christian disciplines, it helps us hear, see, and respond to God God.”
-Jeannette A. Bakke
Spiritual direction is an opportunity to have someone come alongside you in your journey with God. Together, you and a spiritual director sit and go through some of the particulars of your life. The spiritual director sits prayerfully with you in your story, looking for the threads of God’s love and direction.
As a spiritual director, it is my joy to walk with others as they walk with God. Together we enter whatever terrain they are currently traveling and find God there, lovingly working all things together for the good of His Beloved. There is always an invitation to move further and deeper still into the love of Christ.
