It is and honor and my joy to serve as the Community Spiritual Director for Southern California Walk to Emmaus. When I walked (as a layperson) many years ago, on E-88, I had no idea that the Lord would bring me to this point… He is, indeed, able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine!

There was a moment on that walk that I can pinpoint as instrumental in my ministry… a moment in prayer with my pastor and some others, when I was prayed for and anointed with oil. I felt empowered and excited for MORE of whatever the Lord”s plan was for me!

Life and ministry have not been without bumps in the road, but His grace and love are more than enough. I have made lifelong friends in this community and we have walked life’s journey together in prayer and His strength.

I have often prayed the prayer to the Holy Spirit and made it personal…”Come Holy Spirit, fill my heart, keep me faithful to Your call and kindle in me the fire of your love…”

Brothers and Sisters, if we can truly grasp how much we are loved, it changes EVERYTHING!

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God…” 1 John 3:1
