Living Faith at Home

is all about supporting people toward wide open spaces of connection.

We yearn for connection with God. We are hungry to experience God’s love for ourselves. We want relationship with our families of birth or of choice.

Let’s grow connection through bite-sized practices of dialogue, prayer, and community for our every day faith experiences.

Working Together

Living Faith at Home supports you as you explore your living faith in your everyday experiences through :

  • Our Podcast “Faith at Home
  • 1:1 Spiritual Guidance Sessions
  • Group Spiritual Formation Experiences
  • Keynote Speaking

You are invited to explore faith

To experience God as loving and supportive, and to step into your belonging that has existed from before the beginning of time.

You are invited to find meaning in your everyday life, to experience resilience and gratitude in the ups and downs, to release control in the hands of the Life-Giving Spirit.

While taking responsibility for the everyday actions, let’s step into the unforced rhythms of grace, and share our experiences of faith and relationship in ways that are life-giving and connection-building.

 

Life is full of challenges.

Having the support you need for your faith to be alive, practical, and woven into your daily life makes navigating the challenges of life more meaningful.

That support is what Living Faith at Home is about.

About Us…

 

Hi! We are Reade, and Jennifer.

As facilitators for Living Faith at Home, we support people — like you! — to listen to their lives, and through everyday practices of prayer, to be able to step into experiences of connection with the Divine Family!

There’s no instant coffee (who likes that stuff anyway?), but there are practices of support that we can engage in day by day that will grow our spiritual resilience, nourish our soul, and let us step free from the shackles of false guilt and shame.
