Prayer is not a strength of mine. Often when I try to pray my mind wanders or I nod off to sleep. Years ago, while on staff with the ministry of The Navigators I began to use a prayer guide and I found that prayer which focused on the character of God was incredibly rewarding.
I also created this site for my clients. As a professional counselor I have worked with many individuals struggling with eating disorders, anxiety and compulsive behaviors. As I learned more about these disorders and what is happening in the brain, I become more and more convinced that prayer, mindfulness and focused attention are critical to a healthier brain and healthier choices. The 4 steps in reflective prayer take these factors into consideration and are designed to promote a strong and “faithful brain” as my friend Len Matheson calls it.
Professional counselor Paul Loosemore is a creative partner who pushes me to excellence and simplicity. He has written much of the content which you find throughout the site.
Voice actor Andy Barnett narrates our Prayer Paths with a rich, calming and friendly voice. We are excited about the level of professionalism his voice brings to the prayer experience.
