My Latest Book

Everyone gets forked in life. Your path comes to a split and you have to choose which way to go.

Watch the new book trailer!

Navigating the territory of crossroad or difficult decisions is also called, in many faith traditions discernment.

My new book works like a practical pocket guide based on time-tested spiritual exercises that have helped people for over 400 years (The Spiritual Exercises by Ignatius of Loyola, originally written to help men make a wise decision about vocational priesthood).

FORKED: A Discernment Pocket Guide is a guidebook and an integrated process approach that includes all aspects of you.

Things we tend to leave out when we decide things like the intuition, the imagination, the godly passions of the heart that are the dream seeds God plants within us, and many more. Seven key exercises guide you through questions that help you understand yourself better.

As you navigate your interior world and the forks in your world are prayerfully understood in a way you have never encountered before. 

There is no one way to encounter the process either. You can progress through all of the the exercises, or pick the ones that make the best fit for you and your situation. Just grab a notebook and pen and begin.

Don’t be afraid to get started.
