Welcome. Life is a sacred journey, but it doesn’t always feel that way. We can easily get lost in our daily demands and become disconnected from our spirit and source of inspiration. If you’re longing to connect more deeply with your Sacred self, and the Love that is at the core of your being, you’re in the right place. My work is about sharing the journey together, so that we can see the Divine nature shining through all of life, even in the difficult and ordinary moments.

Finding the Courage in Encouragement

O Lord, Come to my Assistance. O Lord, Make Haste to Help Me.
