I began this website as a blog and project for my spiritual direction training program years ago.

I'm an introvert and a semi-private person, so why would I ever start writing about my thoughts and feelings and publish them on the internet? 

Because I'm finding freedom. 

I'm finding freedom in spiritual, emotional, physical and mental areas of my life and it's so amazing that I just couldn't keep it to myself. 

I'm a wife-mom-spiritual director who is passionate about loving people and being a peacemaker. I'm passionate about the "whole" person and how that it is interwoven physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 

In most of my adult life I've been in spaces both locally and globally walking with and advocating for those on the margins, the vulnerable and oppressed. This is my heart.

I stumbled across Spiritual Direction in a years long journey to figure out what I wanted to be when I "grew up" and it's exactly what I was meant to do at this point in my life.

As I make my own SLOW JOURNEY I discover more of who I am and unlearn that which I am not. Photography is just one way that I learn from the world around me. I also enjoy writing, poetry, refinishing furniture, being crafty, singing, playing the guitar, reading and hanging out with people from other places. 

Come with me on this slow journey!
