        Spiritual Director & Life Coach




As a Spiritual Director, I will provide a safe and loving space in which you can become more attentive and respond to where God is moving in your life. I will help you to focus upon the edges of your spiritual growth and discern with you where God may be drawing you toward freedom. Together we will explore the past, observe the present, and weigh choices regarding the future, yet all the time focusing on following and responding to God’s overtures. I believe that everything a person experiences in life is holy ground – an opportunity to be drawn into alignment with God as He relentlessly calls us into his presence. My style as a Spiritual Director is impacted by training I have had in counseling and life coaching. However as a director, my attention will be focused on listening to God together with you. My prayer is that your experience of spiritual direction will provide a path to intimacy with God; greater understanding of yourself, and greater experience and expression of a life lived in partnership with God.

Recommendations and Testimonials:

“Sheri Philips is a wise woman of God with extraordinary insight. Her life illustrates that although we cannot control what comes our way, we can trust the heart and mind of a God who is Sovereign and love. Sheri is an inspiration to every person who wants someone to walk alongside them while listening to God together. Her tenacious love for connecting people to God and others, her courage to say the truth, and her infectious belief in what’s possible make her a sought after spiritual director.” Pam Lau, author and speaker, founder of Real Life Real Image

“Sheri has been a significant mentor in my life for years, and her influence has profoundly changed the way that I interact with others and the way that I connect with God. Her ability to listen to my heart and reflect the things she sees God doing in me through the struggles, difficult questions and disappointments has deeply encouraged me and challenged me. She is a godly woman that speaks the truth in love, inspires by example and encourages with the rich promises of the Bible. The time that she has invested in me and her consistent charge to abide in Christ, being filled with the Spirit, has influenced the way that I see myself, the way that I see others and the way that I see God at work in my daily life.”
“Sheri has been a blessing in my life. She has provided me with an objective “listening ear” that has helped me identify who I am in Christ and has encouraged me in a more authentic walk with God. She has been an invaluable resource in helping me sort out confusing family relationships and proactively confronting and walking through challenging family issues. She has also helped me focus on the positive and to see my whole self, both my strengths and my weaknesses, as a blessing from God.”
