I try to be a contemplative by paying attention, noticing the ways in which God is present all around me—in nature, in people, in events, in my reflections and prayer.

I believe it is important to spend time in prayer each day, especially to reflect and try to hear what God wishes to teach me. Journaling, or writing my prayerful reflections, is especially important for me.

The ministry of spiritual direction is a privileged experience of how God is at work in others and in me during our time together. I learn much from these sacred conversations.
