I am Joan Theriot-Broussard, a Spiritual Director, and I am eager to share with others how to be open to God’s grace. There is a gift waiting for you, all that is required is an open heart and willing spirit. I offer the reflections in this blog to those who say “yes” to this gift.
I completed my studies in Spiritual Direction at the St. Charles Retreat Center, in the Diocese of Lake Charles, Louisiana and have been offering Spiritual Direction since 2007.
I have been giving retreats on Spiritual Journaling since 2004 and have journaled my prayer for over 25 years. I offer other retreats such as; Journaling Through Grief which includes a six-week follow-up series on journaling our grief, Prayer Ways of the Heart, and Having a Mary Spirit in a Martha World (based on the book with the same name) and a special retreat on Mercy.
Standing Faithful is the pursuit of every Christian regardless of what life brings. The call is to deepen our faith to withstand the winds of change and not lose our trust that God has his hand on us, loving us through all things. Stand faithful to this call. Tell God, “I will stand faithful amid all things.” This is my quest every day.
