We see today how busy life can be, with ministry, business, work, families and the demands on our time and mental energies. This leaves us weary, tired and very often disconnected from the fullness of God’s presence, causing us to feel empty and void and at times disillusioned. We are also at risk of losing our joy and can become ineffective in our purpose and our callings. From my own journey , spiritual growth and development I've had to embrace ancient paths, learning about the spirit of leadership and maintaining a vibrant heart, while leading change and strategic implementation. My purpose is to support you to develop and maintain intimacy with God and remain connected to your authentic self. Providing a sacred space for God to rejuvenate and refresh your spirit. Journeying with you as you grow and reconnect to the Father’s heart.

Credentials 

I've learned from my own life experiences, the impacts of busyness and the frenzy that everyday chaos has on one’s spiritual development and growth. In the Bible I see the life of Christ and despite the demands of ministry He was able to remain connected; ministering from a place of fullness.
