What is spiritual direction?

What It Is

Spiritual direction occurs within an interpersonal relationship when one person helps another begin to learn how to grow, live and love in the spiritual life.

What It Is Not

Spiritual direction is not counseling or coaching but rather a wellness practice to help a person notice where God might be in any given life situation.

What Happens

Spiritual direction includes times of prayer and discernment to understand what God is saying and doing through the everyday life of sameness, transition, change or celebration and gain.

What Comes After

An awareness of God in a person’s life, as well as in the world, becomes deeper.

Linda Madeksho

Linda’s desire is to help others understand how God brings the extraordinary to their ordinary daily life. Individual direction with her will be spent in the presence of the Holy Spirit to look, listen, discern and move closer to the heart of God and the intentionality of his design for the individual.

… that the eyes of your heart be enlightened that you may know the hope to which God has called you …

Ephesians 1:18
