Tree by Water: What We Offer

Here at Tree by Water, Laura believes that the health of our souls and families comes before ministry output.  As a pastor, the health of our spirit should not be sidelined until we have time.  We all know the time does not come until we intentionally make space for growth and healing.

"Soul Focus:" Online Spiritual Care 

These stand-alone individual sessions are conducted online.  They are scheduled at your convenience... once a month, twice a month, once a year... You come with the focus, or topic, challenge and together, you and Laura discuss and discern the activity of God.  After starting with a short period of silence, you talk. Laura listens.  In the time, Laura will ask questions, process, make observations, pray. Together you may discuss Scripture or talk about your thought life.  No person or session is the same. 

I love you. Always..png
