It is often at the crossroads of life that we are aware of the need to discern, to pay attention to our desire for God’s direction.

This 20-page booklet looks at the human desire to be aware of God’s presence and guidance in daily life and offers ways of prayerfully discerning how to notice and respond.

Lois Lindbloom, spiritual director and counselor, looks first at the crossroads experiences that often bring us to desire discernment and direction. Drawing on scripture and stories from her own life experiences and acknowledging that the way is often not entirely clear, she examines various practices—looking backwards, trying on options, remembering other crossroad experiences, a regular spiritual direction relationship—that can aid in individual discernment and decision-making.
