What It's All About
Even the strongest person may need help finding an oasis in the desert. You can experience greater wholeness and deeper peace while going from "strength to strength."
"Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength till each appears before God in Zion." Psalm 84:5-7
I'm a single mom of five 5 married children, 15 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.
My Personal Experience
A profound encounter with the Lord Jesus, following a very painful divorce and the tragic and violent deaths of both parents, changed the trajectory of my life forever. With Him, the next season was one of healing and growth as I worked full time and raised this large and wonderful family.
My Professional Experience
When the children started leaving the "nest" I systematically pursued a seminary education, earning a Masters of Divinity in Pastoral Counseling and ultimately a Doctorate in Spiritual Formation. During these twenty years I also served the Lord in the pregnancy resource center movement; acting as Executive Director for the last seven years.
Most recently I have become certified through Sustainable Faith's School of Spiritual Direction and have received their accreditation to accompany individuals through the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises.
I am currently serving the Lord as associate staff at Christ the King Vineyard Church in North Olmsted, OH and with Sustainable Faith as an affiliate spiritual director.
It is my sincere desire to share all the Lord has taught me as I walked with Him through these circumstances. It is also my passion to help you create a “sacred space” of deeper intimacy with Jesus, that encompasses every moment and circumstance of your day. Won’t you join me?
I am a practicing spiritual director, author, speaker, and teacher helping individuals experience a life of greater wholeness and deeper peace.
