We Love: Spiritual Formation

We are passionate about spiritual formation – anything that helps you listen to God, discern the ways in which God is working in your life, and experience God’s deep love for you. Here are a few things we think are great:

The Academy for Spiritual Formation

A program of The Upper Room, The Academy for Spiritual Formation offers an opportunity for lay people and clergy to learn about and explore spiritual disciplines within community. The Academy offers five-day and two-year programs. Kristen participated in the two-year program (Academy #34), and it was a profound, life-changing experience for her.  Click here to learn more.


Kristen begins every morning (okay, almost every morning) with this app. She loves everything about it: the gorgeous graphics, the calming sound effects, the various options for meditations. It’s great, too, at bedtime. Click here to learn more.
