God created you for a life of meaning and purpose.
With the overwhelming number of choices and decisions, how do you come to discover what this life of meaning and purpose looks like? You may even wonder, “Does God have a vision for my life?
God desires to meet you where you are and to help you discover your next right steps. Drawing on the promises of God found in scripture and the wisdom of St. Ignatius of Loyola, this retreat seeks to answer: How do we settle our scattered minds and hear God’s voice and call when everything competes for our attention?
There is hope!
You do not have to feel overwhelmed anymore and you do not have to journey alone.
We are inviting you to join our community as we journey together through the discernment wisdom of St. Ignatius of Loyola. For six weeks we invite you to intentionally pause, pray, and embrace a path of abundant hope, peace, and purpose.
This unique online retreat, based on the 500-year-old discernment wisdom of St. Ignatius of Loyola provides an individual retreat experience within a virtual community of faith.
Throughout the retreat, Becky will guide you through the Ignatian discernment process. Together with her team of Ignatian prayer guides we will help you discover and live God's vision for your life. A vision where you are overwhelmed no more!
