Soul Shepherding and Spiritual Direction with Diane Bryant

The goal of spiritual direction is spiritual formation—the ever increasing capacity to live a spiritual life from the heart... The greatest call of a spiritual director is to open the door to the opportunity for spiritual growth and sometimes provide a glimpse of the great mysterious light behind the curtain of life and of the Lord who is the source of all knowing and the giver of life. To receive spiritual direction is to recognize that God does not solve our problems or answer all our questions, but leads us closer to the mystery of our existence where all questions cease.” –Henri Nouwen in Spiritual Direction

Client Testimonies

“Spiritual direction with Diane is important to me because it helps me focus on my spiritual journey and I no longer feel like it is an isolated experience. It has also brought a greater awareness of the presence of God in my life. Diane is a great support in my faith journey and a great listener! Our time of prayer, conversation, and spiritual direction is refreshing for my soul.”

“Spiritual direction has impacted me by providing a safe space to share and process through the ups and downs of life in a holistic, soul-shaping, Spirit-appointed sort of way. It has provided a 'one another' that has helped shape, guide, and direct the work of the Holy Spirit in and through me.”​
