  1. thanks. it is simple…
    I guess being faithful to Spiritual Direction is one of the hardest part for a seeker of Spiritual Direction. listening to you now makes me realize that maybe it is because ” I” and my ” SD” just don’t fit …that’s why…
    so at the end I abandoned it. But I remain faithful though to other means of seeking God in my life. Thank you very much for this

  2. Becky, thanks for this excellent and concise explanation of what to expect in spiritual direction. I am often asked this question and I really appreciate your explanation.
