Listen With the Ear of Your Heart

Listening

What is spiritual direction? An attentive, witnessed space where you can learn to live more wholeheartedly no matter what circumstances bring…

Telling

Audio essays from the rural valley where I live, because small stories deserve to be told well.

About Me

I have some credentials (an M.A. in English Literature, Certification in Spiritual Direction, and I’m currently a student in the M.F.A. program at Seattle Pacific University), but almost everything I know I learned through stories: Bible stories, works of literature, family stories, journalism, stories of friends and neighbors and saints. I suspect that every little, seemingly ordinary story is a fractal, a miniature replica of the saga of God’s pursuit of us and our pursuit of God.

Because God’s story matters, every other story is worth listening to.

I am an Associate of the Episcopal Order of Julian of Norwich, a contemplative Benedictine monastic community. I live and listen and write in a rural mountain valley in Colorado with my husband and our dog.
