I live in Virginia, in sight of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I am a piano teacher, spiritual director, and mother of four adult children. It is a sacred privilege to sit in spiritual direction with another believer, listening to her story. God is present and participating in this conversation. As we become silent and attentive to Him, He begins to reveal Himself and His ways. Directees may discover lost or hidden things: longing, resistance, hurt, fear, unobserved growth, a new sense of belonging and purpose… God directs this meaningful process.
