This is some of my journey in listening to God speak
…as He does ALL through Scripture.
“My sheep listen to my voice;
I know them, and they follow me.”
– John 10:27 (NIV)
Warning: Challenging thoughts on this blog…
What do you do when Scripture and hearing God’s voice challenges everything you hear and experience in your culture?
Do you defer to your tradition?
Or do you boldly follow Jesus – out of your tradition?
Do you follow Jesus ‘out of the box’?
Jesus wants to be in fellowship with us. He gives us His Holy Spirit—so we would never have to be alone. One of the things Jesus promised us is that the Holy Spirit would speak to us, so that we could maintain our intimate relationship with Him. (1 John 14:16-21).
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. (John 16:13)
The challenge comes when your culture silences the voice of God, His Holy Spirit.
This is some of my journey…
Following Holy Spirit has led me to the most beautiful adventures with Jesus.
Jesus has far more for us
– than the boxes we knowingly or unknowingly put Him in…
I love to hear God’s voice.
His voice heals and leads to abundant living!
I love to empower others to hear God’s voice and follow Him.
(My days are often bizarre. The key is to listen to God’s voice and follow His leading. My family is used to my stories after I go to the store or take the dog for a walk. Plus, what happens daily in my office with my Life Coaching and Spiritual Direction clients is a picture of Isaiah 61. I witness breakthrough after breakthrough with my clients as I teach them to hear God’s voice.)
I’ve been on a journey…
of less of me, less of man-made religion…
and more of Jesus.
What does it mean to really follow Him?
I’m exploring and learning.
Who am I?
I am a child of God,… a gold miner… a treasure hunter, a mentor, a life coach, a spiritual director, once a traditional church pastor – now a church planter of disciple making movements, a teacher, a researcher, a hungry prayer warrior, a loyal friend, a fellow traveller and an avid explorer. 🙂
(Disclaimer: these thoughts posted are my own journey and experiences and do not reflect any organization I may be associated with. I simply love Jesus, His Word, and listen to His Spirit. You will soon see how adventurous He is with me…)
Every week, I coach people through to breakthrough, through healing (of anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, burnout, and other blockages) in order to unlock greater clarity in hearing God’s voice according to His Word, and the fruit of Holy Spirit.
If you’re stuck and determined to get unstuck, that’s where I come in. My sessions are all led by Holy Spirit with one part inner healing prayer, one part spiritual direction, one part life coaching depending on your needs. Each time is a beautiful surprise.

This tells me that you are hungry and thirsty for more of what God has for you. 🙂
If so, that’s exciting! Because of this verse…
“…Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” – John 7:37-38
