Trained by the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation
Practicing Spiritual Direction for over 7 years

Christine is an insightful, inspiring, and inquisitive Spiritual Director whose style is grace-filled, inviting, and loving with each individual she journeys with. Christine’s directees describe their experiences with her as safe, welcoming, and accepting. She believes that Spiritual Direction should be a loving space of holy ground, in which individuals are invited to be fully who they presently are, even as they explore who God has created them to be. Her greatest desire for anyone considering Spiritual Direction is to know and have a deeper intimacy in their relationship with God.

Christine enjoys cooking, gardening, and hiking in her spare time, and loves food too much to pick favorites. A day off well spent would be with friends, being outside, reading, and finding ways to appreciate the big and small blessings in life. Her favorite passages of Scripture are Isaiah 61:1, Galatians 2:20, and Psalm 37:4. She enjoys connecting with God personally through solitude retreats, being in the Word, worshipping, journaling, learning, and just ‘being’ with Him.

I believe spiritual direction is one of the most profound ways that I can partner with God in His Kingdom on earth. It is important because, for me, there is no greater calling then to come alongside another and witness their journey with God and be a conduit of His love, Presence and grace.
