“I am Roman Catholic mom, wife and spiritual director. I have been a director since 1998.

At the time I began my study of Spiritual Direction I just had our twin girls, and I was struck, again, by the profound relationship my motherhood, pregnancy and birth experiences had on my spirituality.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

My birth and pregnancy experiences helped form my personal and spiritual understanding of myself as a person, woman, Daughter of the Great King : That we, as moms, women, persons are greater than the sums of our parts.

I understand the pressures we put on ourselves and I understand the profound effect Spiritual Direction has to helping us learn more about ourselves and God.”  ~Patty Wilson Perkowski
