MEET KATHLEEN

Kathy’s life is a God hunt. She searches for God in nature, in prayer, in lectio divina, and in her son’s autism. She walks alongside others who seek God’s presence in her spiritual direction practice and in her award-winning books. She loves thunderstorms, rainbows, snowy days, wildflowers, and reading a good novel at bedtime.

Sometimes I have to pinch myself to see if I’m dreaming.

I look out the front window of our 100-year-old farmhouse to see a cornfield topped with majestic clouds.

I look out the side window to see the prayer room (transformed from a chicken coop!), now home to my Spiritual Direction practice. A carriage house serves as my husband’s workshop, and the barn, built in the 1860’s, is under reconstruction to house a studio apartment and gathering place for Cloudland’s retreatants.

I look out the kitchen window on the opposite side of the house to see the kitchen garden, and beyond it, a field of dreams planted in wildflowers (2 acres of glorious color!).

The dream of owning and running a contemplative retreat center with my husband, Wally.

Dream realized—Cloudland—right outside the windows of this beautiful old farmhouse.

Cloudland

The dream of being a Spiritual Director.

Thank you, Lord, for a beautiful prayer room to cradle my directees as they share their journeys with me.

Spiritual Direction

The dream of happy and fulfilled adulthoods for our sons and daughters-of-heart

Matt, almost finished with his doctorate in structural engineering from University of Cincinnati; Justin established in business with his dad as co-owner of Crane-Tec, married to Elizabeth, and expecting their first child soon; Joel, happy in his very own home with long-time caregiver Mohamed from Mauritania (an angel straight from heaven); Sarah, recipient of a master’s degree in social work from University of Cincinnati, and office manager for Crane-Tec.

The dream of a daughter.

Realized in Sarah, who entered our life as a youngster who fell in love with Joel at summer camp, and who, as an adult, is now a full-fledged member of the family.

The dream of a church that loves and accepts our son, Joel, and calls out his gifts.

Found in real life in The Oxford Vineyard, a church that shows up often in my blogs on Not Alone Special Needs Parenting.

Like I said, sometimes I have to pinch myself to see if I’m dreaming.
Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
Alleluia! Praise the Lord! God is good! All the time. God is good!
