Across a New Threshold

July 10, 2015

Help me celebrate crossing a new threshold in ministry!

For many years, my ministry — which includes writing, leading retreats, and offering spiritual direction — was something I could do only in my spare time.  Last year, as we welcomed the new life of our daughter, Mary, into our family, God also invited me into a new season of ministry where writing, retreats, and spiritual direction became the primary focus.

The shift this past year and a half was incredibly life-giving to me, and I have no doubt this is the way God is inviting me to live out my both/and call as mother and lay minister.    With this new season of ministry comes new changes, one of which I am happy to unveil today– my new website and brand!

In the months ahead, I plan on offering new blog posts 2-3 times a month.  In the meantime, I invite you to check out the Spiritual Resources page where you can find ways to support your spiritual life on a daily basis.  For the month of July consider participating in the celebration of St. Ignatius’ feast day with daily offerings at 31 Days with Saint Ignatius! 

If your parish, church, or ministry is looking for someone to offer a retreat, please consider how I might be of service to you.   Or if there are people in your life who could benefit from receiving nourishment for their spiritual life or working in spiritual direction with someone, please share this with them!   

I hope this website offers you even more resources to support you on your spiritual journey.  So go check it out and please pass the word to your family and friends!
