What Is
Spritual Direction?

I'm glad you asked...

While spiritual direction may be a new term to you, it is not new to the worldwide Christian church. In the 4th and 5th centuries, thousands of Christians came to the desert fathers and mothers for spiritual direction, and we can still benefit from many of their writings during this time. During the Reformation, some of our most famous reformers such as Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli and Jean Calvin refer in their writings to meetings with their own spiritual directors and to themselves giving spiritual direction to others. The majority of spiritual directors today will have received certification through a two to three year program of study.

A spiritual director is a trained listener, often referred to as a holy or sacred companion, who helps you discern God's voice in your life and where He is active. I am assisting you in attuning your heart to God and deepening your relationship with Him. This is not counseling. Where counseling is problem-centric; spiritual direction is Spirit-centric. It is a practice based on prayer and led from prayer. A typical spiritual direction session is a combination of prayer, questions and scripture.

"You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water."

Psalm 63:1

Are you hungry to know God? Is your soul yearning to connect to God in a deeper way? I'd love to talk to you about it! Reach out, and let's decide if spiritual direction is what you're looking for.
