My family and I lived in Southeast Asia for over twelve years. In 2013 we took a Sabbatical year following a season of burnout. During this time I began meeting with a spiritual director. In 2016 I entered Selah’s Spiritual Direction training program. I see spiritual direction as sharing sacred space in God's presence. Together we seek to hear God's voice to know God and God’s heart towards us. I believe that as we come to know God, we also come to know ourselves and this impacts our relationships with others. We are transformed by knowing ourselves as God's beloved.
