beloved resources

for spiritual formation & end of life

One of the most daunting parts of seeking spiritual guidance or searching for peace after being diagnosed with a life-limiting illness is sorting through information found on the internet in search of truly helpful resources. I've carefully selected books, podcasts, and links to websites that I believe will be valuable and trustworthy sources of information. I want to provide you with practical and thoughtful information as you journey toward peace.
