I have had a growing desire to minister Christ’s love to others since giving my life to Christ as a teenager. In later years, as my core passion for growth increased, I had the joy of participating in the first Tending the Holy program that met in the Chicago area (2003-2005). I experienced spiritual direction as a loving space where I was invited to grow in a deeper knowledge and intimacy with God. Tending the Holy guided and shaped me through prayerful listening, conversation and support. Now I am privileged to share this gift with others through the ministry of spiritual direction and by serving Christos as a program coordinator.
