I help create space for your soul to breathe so that you can discern your next right thing in love.
After spending the last six years hosting The Next Right Thing podcast and offering spiritual direction and creative coaching for those struggling with decision fatigue, several themes have emerged: we are carrying many burdens, we are committed to our own healing and the healing of those around us, and we will not suffer fools.
As the animating center of our lives, our soul is the place from which thought, feeling, action, and choice emerge and are integrated.
But the soul is hidden, quiet, and slow-moving. In order to discern our next right thing, it’s imperative we learn the language our soul wants to speak.
I'm always working to find new ways to take what is true, hidden, and invisible and bring it into our regular, extravagant, ordinary lives.
That's part of what we're attempting to do here with this app—to create some intentional space for your soul to emerge, to give it form and margin by offering simple readings, familiar prayers, and original reflections to accompany you along your way.
"The Quiet Collection for Christmas is just what I need during this hectic but beautiful season. Short, peaceful, and thoughtful when doing a long or difficult devotion seems like too much. It's truly helping through this busy time in our lives.
—Ann (Love: For Advent est. 2021)
