About Pasture Experience
Pasture Experience embodies the visual of Psalm 23 as our life; a vast, inclusive field with ample room to roam and explore, while sojourning with others on their unique path, all within the safe embrace of our Shepherd.
Our "pasture" offers invitations and permission to be fully known and wholly loved by our Creator and fellow faith pioneers.
Untethered to a specific church or denomination, Pasture draws spiritually hungry/ spiritual formation/ spiritual direction individuals into a neutral space to come as we are and know God IS present.
He is listening, loving, and inviting us to know Him deeper.
My prayer is for Pasture to be a soul nourishing experience where you tune yourself more toward where God is already moving, rest in His freedom, find confidence as you journey toward your truest self, and discover intimate community along the way.
Pasture Experience is offered through:
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, Or the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil,for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

I am in process of becoming my truest self. Perhaps you are, too?
This looks a lot like holding expectations and plans open and becoming more comfortable with not having answers. I'm passionate about bridging the tension between truth and mystery. Congruency is my prayer; that my insides will match my outsides.
I’ve worn many hats that include wife, mama of two boys, author, furniture re-arranger, plant lady, hospice worker, poet, prayer, thrifter, whimsy-chaser, gardener, glutton for nature, interior designer, podcaster, wildflower cultivator and seed scatter.
Yet, the more I surrender these titles, the more I’m finding my bare, vulnerable self most at home offering spiritual direction and facilitating/hosting Pasture Experience Retreats in our TN home, all in the company of authentic people, fabulous food, beauty, and ample room for grace and space.
I believe listening is healing.
Being heard is healing.
Experiencing confidence as we discover who we are when we’re not padded with performance, and need only to receive love is healing.
I can't help but wonder if the small mustard seed miracles in our everyday are actually the most sacred, lasting seeds, planted and picked by the Divine.
Nothing makes my heart happier than ushering people into discovering God’s voice and stepping bravely, although scared, onto their own path.
