About Me

Spiritual direction is offering the companionship of listening to both another’s story and the Spirit’s direction for living our lives more fully. The space of listening invites us into a personal encounter with the deep love of God. My own journey through the soul care of spiritual direction and inner healing prayer has helped me to be more grounded in Christ, know God more intimately as well as myself, and enable me to walk in my true identity. I desire to walk alongside men and women of all ages and backgrounds in their spiritual journey, and invite them to experience more fully the deep love of God, and live from a place of intimacy in Christ. Besides walking alongside others as a spiritual companion in their spiritual journey, I enjoy guiding groups through contemplative retreats where we enjoy solitude and silence for prayer, scripture meditation, and hanging out with God. 

For over 35 years, I have served in various ministries as a retreat speaker for women and church leadership, teaching Bible studies, leading homeschool fellowship groups, leading small groups for listening and group spiritual direction, and offering workshops for soul care with spiritual disciplines, prayer, Enneagram Personality Styles, and Immanuel Journaling. 

I received my Certificate of Spiritual Direction from North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois. My husband and I have six grown children and now live outside of Chicago with our dog, Max. I love to take long walks in creation, read, and have deep conversations with family and friends over a good meal.

"This is what the Lord says, 'Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." Jeremiah 6:16
