Introduction Spiritual Direction isn’t therapy or counseling. It is your very own time spent solely on connecting to God. No pressure, no sales, just you and I and God exploring the great questions that are longing to be answered. I happily come along on your faith journey. I am simply someone holding the lamp, illuminating our steps toward God. Would You Like a Deeper Relationship With God? I would love to Help You. Spiritual Direction allows you to grow in a personal relationship with God through noticing and savoring the movements of the Spirit in everyday life, prayer, meditation, and relationships. I am offering one-on-one, sacred, confidential and contemplative time to help you on your faith journey. I do not have the answers for your life, what I do have is a willingness to accompany you on a glorious journey of discernment, gratitude and grace-filled decision-making. You may find a more integrated life and healthier relationships with self and others through spiritual direction.
Interests I am an avid reader and TV watcher. I fancy myself a wine enthusiast and beer snob.

You've rented a sky-writer to propose to your significant other, but it's completely overcast. What will you do?

Shit, take that as a sign from God and keep my mouth shut. In other words there would be no proposal that day or any other day.
