Please contact katy@shalem.org directly for orders over 20 booklets.

It is important to pay prayerful attention to one’s life in order to be clearer about and more cooperative with God’s activity.

This 24-page booklet is the third in a series about prayerful living written by Lois Lindbloom, spiritual director and counselor. In this booklet, Lindbloom focuses on individual spiritual direction, or spiritual companioning, in which an individual meets regularly with a spiritual director/guide.

Drawing on scripture and stories from her own life experiences, Lindbloom shows how life changes and difficulty discerning a prayerful path often lead an individual to seek spiritual guidance. Once in this special relationship, and led by the Spirit of God, both director and directee experience the possibility of growing in God together.
