Sarah has loved stories from a young age – books, plays, and movies – and spiritual direction is the story of God’s transformative work in people’s lives. It is a great privilege to be a keeper of people’s stories, to notice the patterns that both plague and promise, and to be present for those moments of God’s gentle prodding and sometimes not-so-gentle illumination.
Over the last nine years Sarah’s spiritual direction practice has been comprised primarily of pastors – some of the least pastored people in our churches. She did her doctoral research on how spiritual direction facilitates pastors’ relationships with God, their churches, and their sense of call. Sarah’s practice of spiritual direction continues to be informed by the participants in her project.
Sarah has been married for over 30 years, loves walking and talking, re-imagining her home, and making stuff - cards, art prints, and gifts.
