Our new "business" cards -- yes, we still accept requests for all sorts of things in anam cara, including speaking/teaching as a team. We don't charge a fee, yes we are FREE indeed. Don't mind some help with travel and lodging for out of town gigs, but everything is negotiable.
While our "ministry" is primarily one-to-one discipleship; soul care, mentoring, etc., these days, we nonetheless welcome group experiences as well. Our range of topics and areas of life includes all those things we've experienced in God's grace and mercy; marriage/relationships and all that entails both good and difficult, parenting at all stages, family dynamics in different seasons, spiritual formation and discipleship -- life.
We love speaking to all kinds of groups, denominations, genders and ages. We will even do men's or women's retreats as a team, while adjusting our participation accordingly for sensitive topics and small group breakouts, etc.
Our passion is simply that others would grow in their knowledge of God, Lover of our souls, and individually too in Christ; transformation. We humbly and vulnerably share ourselves and our lives in a comfortable, humorous way that others tell us they have been blessed by.
So, if you or your gathering are looking for an inexpensive speaker(s), let us know. For us, it's all part of long obedience within God's unforced rhythms of grace.

What's in a name? Jesus, the Christ of God versus the religion called Christianity. When did love, grace, mercy, compassion, and humility get superseded by worldly wealth, power and fame?
I walked away from the religion when it seemed "empty", I came "back" to Jesus and met him for the first time. The new relationship has been a journey, he's taught me much along the way, and I expect has more in store for an old monk of a moose.
Gratitude. Yep, that's the word. That's where and who I've become through surrender and submission, as opposed to striving and controlling. Grace and blessings, even through trials and suffering. My passion in this season is simply to share the LOVE, to talk story and let the Creator and Lover of my soul do the rest.

Only the Creator and Lover of all souls has the authority and power to redeem, restore and recreate "Their" creation.
So then what are we to do?!
Surrender and submit to divine LOVE, out of which "They" will "make all things new". This IS the HOPE which exists even in our broken, violent world.
LOVE will motivate us toward self-sacrifice, humility, mercy, compassion, and grace. We will cast aside our own selfish wants and desires for the greater good of humanity and in response to divine LOVE as we embrace our own identity as the Beloved.
Many throughout history have discovered and embraced this divine Truth, but it is so counterintuitive to the selfish, greedy, power-hungry ways of the world that only surrender and submission can bring us to it. It is a holy contradiction that is most often arrived at through our own brokenness and despair ("dark night of the soul").
Do not expect our leaders, religious nor political, to achieve healing and restoration, nor even to guide us in the Way of Love. The Creator through Their Spirit of LOVE will gather an army of surrendered and submitted ones who will go and do an abundance of small things made great and powerful in LOVE. This then is how we partner with the Creator and Lover of our souls, of every soul, as They redeem, restore and recreate, making all things new in heaven and earth.
It is a Great Mystery revealed to the humble, but hidden from the proud. It is the divine Truth at the heart and core of most of the religions of man. If we will consider it, it is best revealed and demonstrated in the one called Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ of God. But I caution you, do not look to the religious or their institutions, including Christianity, to discover this for yourself. We come to it in Trust that the Spirit will reveal the Truth as we seek first the Kingdom of God. Yes, Holy Scripture is our guidebook, but we need the Guide to explain and bring revelation to our heart and soul.
When we have come to it, to LOVE, we will simply be present in humility wherever and to whomever. We will live in simplicity, yet with great Peace and JOY even in the midst of the brokenness. It begins in our own homes and families, then goes out into our neighborhoods and communities, joining the great army of LOVE throughout the world. We will give sacrificially out of what we've been given, even the smallest amounts making a positive difference globally as they are multiplied by the Creator through Their Army of LOVE.
Quiet yourself this day, listen to Their voice, "You are the Beloved of divine LOVE, of the Creator and Lover of your very soul." In this Truth you have and are HOPE in our broken, violent world. You are powerful beyond worldly measure, you have great authority in LOVE. Your simple, humble prayers are multiplied exponentially as they are lifted to the heavens. Your simple, humble, loving presence in the world is made transformative and healing by the Presence of divine LOVE Themselves.

When we deride our fellow human beings, we deride Christ and His Body, the Church. In this way we participate with the evil dweeb. To rejoice with others in their Joy and Blessings is the Way of Christ, the Way of LOVE. }:- ❤️
I have chosen to remove myself from Facebook and groups to avoid the negativity of some, a sabbatical of sorts, rather than be drawn into the negativity. I will return after God has done Their work of healing and encouragement in me. }:- 💔~❤️
