Testimonials of directees
I have discovered that there is something I cannot learn alone in our spiritual path, no matter how much I try and no matter how much I want. As I cannot perform an operation on myself, I need the spiritual hand of another I trust. A good spiritual director is such an "other." Thank you!
As always, Mary Sharon, thank you for your wonderful inspiration and guidance.
I'm amazed that you are a part of my God-journey
and I thank God that I have met you.
Mary Sharon, struggling alone and struggling with a good spiritual director are two completely different things. Each struggle is now a stepping stone to another blessing . . . a means to discover another gift. Thank you so much, Mary Sharon, for your excellent direction and your constant prayers.
