Why Do I Blog?

Blogging is a new experience for me, though I have known for a while that writing is a form of creative expression and spiritual discipline I feel drawn to. I have been nudged by the Spirit into a life of Christian spiritual formation and have, over the last ten years, found depth and healing in finding myself immersed in centuries of spiritual flow. God has deepened my roots through the practices of spiritual direction, meditation, silent retreat, Academy for Spiritual Formation, covenant group, lectio divina, healing prayer, shadow work, writing, attentiveness to body, rule of life, liturgy and sacraments, silence, and studying the spirituality of saints. I pray that blogging is a new step in the journey of creative expression and praise.
