Darrel’s Philosophy and Approach



I believe… 

  • God is a self-revealing God and desires to show himself to us in all incidences. 
  • The Holy Spirit is and is attempting to converse with us everyday. 
  • Human beings are easily distracted from God’s loving pursuit by the noise in their lives. 
  • Spiritual direction is a way to tune in to the activity of God and can be a very valuable tool in responding to Him.

Paria 11.07 033


I consider my role in spiritual direction to be your companion on the journey of growing in intimacy with God. Through our prayerful conversations I will give witness to God’s work in your life and encourage you to respond to His love. 

That means…

  • I will listen and keep what you share in confidence in accordance with the ethical standards of Spiritual Direction.
  • I will keep us focused on your experience of God.
  • I will pray with you and for you.
  • I will suggest practices that help you cultivate a growing hunger and awareness of God presence in your life
