THE VISION

The vision behind Roots and Wings Ministries is to be rooted and grounded deeply in God's Word while also embracing the Holy Spirit so we are free to hear and act on all that God is asking of us. Individuals are seen as followers of Christ and not just their particular Christian denomination. The Body of Christ needs one another - what is most important to this ministry is that you become fully who God wants you to be, healthy and whole, and wherever He has called you. Whether Catholic or Protestant you are welcome here to deepen your relationship with the One Christ Jesus who is our Lord and Savior.

A LIFELONG CALL

At a very young age I had a fascination with wanting to hear the voice of God in my life. Whether it was through a captivating sunset, a word from a friend, or Holy Scripture speaking to me in a new way, I longed to be attentive to God's still small voice. I grew up knowing Jesus as my closest Friend and Holy Spirit and my guide. This led to a lifelong journey of discerning how to hear God and know that it was Him and not myself. Spiritual Direction has been, and continues to be, a true gift in my life. We do not have to travel this life alone, and sometimes we just need a prayerful companion to help us see, hear, and know His living word
being spoken to our own soul. It is my great honor and
privilege to now pay this gift forward to others
who like me, want to be transformed by God.

WHO IS SPIRITUAL DIRECTION FOR?

Spiritual Direction is for any follower of Christ who wants to grow in their intimacy with the Lord. Sometimes people seek out a spiritual director when they are in the desert with God - when prayer seems dry or boring. A person may be making a big decision, discerning their call to ministry or religious vocation, or going through a big change in their life. But more often spiritual direction is for anyone who is hungering for a deeper connection

with God and wants to grow in their Christian walk.

Spiritual direction may be right for you if: 

- you want to grow in sensing when God is speaking

to you or when it is your own voice

- you want to apply God's written word and His rhema word to your life creating deep and lasting transformation

- you want to grow in your dependence on the Holy Spirit

to guide you throughout your days

Spiritual direction is first tried out - risk free - there's no commitment to continue coming unless you feel led, or desire to do so. It's confidential making it perfect for those in ministry who need a place to process outside of their teams. It is free of judgment - allowing God to meet you where you are - and then letting the Holy Spirit reveal what needs to be revealed. 

I invite you to see why spiritual direction

is such a valued gift to the church! I have saved a space for you!
