SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

We don't go it alone. God made us relational people, and we need one another to help us, remind us, teach us, encourage us. We need the body of Christ, and we need mentors and teachers and just people who listen with us to find the Holy Spirit at work.

Spiritual direction is a ministry where one person meets with another to act as an observer and a companion as we navigate the journey the Lord has set in front of us. Directors listen to people and to the Spirit to help discern where God is and what he is doing and give space for us to reflect on our lives and our hearts.

Typical direction sessions last one hour and occur monthly, though there is flexibility, depending on our needs and circumstances.

I have been meeting informally with people for many years, but many people have invited me to formalize my training in spiritual direction. So I'm currently working with the Evangelical Spiritual Directors Association and a consulting supervisor to supplement my studies and practice. I have also received background education from Biola University's Institute for Spiritual Formation and practicum training from Regis College at the Toronto School of Theology.

I am available to meet for spiritual direction either in person in Whittier, California or over distance through Skype™.

If you would like to meet with me or have questions about spiritual direction, please feel free to contact me. I’d love to have a conversation with you.
