Spiritual GuidanceWhy Spiritual Direction?

A Christian’s relationship with God can have its share of uncertainties, practical concerns and nagging doubts.  This doesn’t make you unfaithful, just a human being living faith in real life.

We all experience difficult seasons in our spiritual life, a desire and leading to go a little deeper, or have some specific questions or issues we feel called to explore. 

A Spiritual Director can help you discern where you are at, and provide insight and practical steps to traverse the rough spots of the journey and continue on into the things of God in a holistic way as a part of everyday real life. (Download our Brochure)

What is Spiritual Direction?

Christian spiritual direction is the practice of helping another person or group to discover God as revealed in Jesus Christ in all of life, and to respond to that discovery in a growing relationship of love, freedom, meaning and commitment.

IamSignificant.ca’s Michael Rose works with people from many different walks of life and is a compassionate, experienced spiritual director; one who cares deeply about people, their story and spiritual life. Together you will look and listen for how God is intertwined and at work in your life.  Michael will help you uncover the work of the Holy Spirit in your life so that you can understand and respond to God’s invitations to a deeper love relationship—one that enriches your freedom to follow the will of God and to live with a deeper sense of purpose and peace.

In a general sense, spiritual direction helps you explore your personal and sacred relationship with God and ask the BIG questions like:

  • Who is God?
  • Who am I uniquely in God?
  • Where is God when I am hurting or afraid?
  • What is truly important to me and why?
  • Why does God seem distant when I pray?
  • Why do I still struggle with guilt and shame?
  • What is my calling?
  • What is God doing in my life?
  • What are my gifts?
  • How do I live with integrity what I believe?
  • How can I cultivate a deeper relationship with Jesus and others?

In this very practical form of soul care, we assist you in asking these questions, providing some tools for discerning the answers and working with you to see how these answers impact your life in healthy ways.  Michael’s clients generally experience:

  • a fresh experience of the Grace & love of God
  • greater sense of peace, purpose & direction
  • learn practical ways for their own soul care
  • deeper vibrancy in their knowledge & experience with God
  • greater freedom & healing from hurts & brokenness
  • greater sense of self-awareness & acceptance
  • feel they have been heard & have been genuinely loved & cared for
  • identify & prayerfully address barriers to deeper faith

Spiritual direction is, in reality, nothing more than a way of leading us to see and obey the real Director — the Holy Spirit hidden in the depths of our soul.” – Thomas Merton, Trappist monk
