A Personal Note from Debbie:
I love people and find great joy in journeying with others. As a young girl my dad instilled this in me as he took me along to visit people from all walks of life.
I have been married for forty-two years to a gentle man I met in a village near Ottawa. I have been blessed to build a family with him, which includes three adult children, their partners and eight wonderful grandchildren.
I have many years of experience in the pastoral ministry within the local church. Last year God birthed Still Ministries in my Heart and it is a great delight to offer contemplative services within my faith community and on-line.
When I was introduced to spiritual formation and then to the beautiful ministry of spiritual direction I began to encounter a fresh and deep intimacy with God. God has continued to lead me into a contemplative life, deepening the peace I experience in Him. It is my joy and calling to come alongside others one on one, as well as gather people to experience together the love of God, and to grow in the knowing of our belovedness. I know that life takes many surprising turns and leads into some pretty painful valleys...I have experienced a number of them personally. But life also has surprising joys and in both the valleys and the joys, we can know God's presence.
I am committed to creating a sacred and welcoming space in all that I offer. I believe that the ministry of spiritual direction and spiritual practices impact the whole of our lives with healing and freedom to be and do what God has created us for.
