“We stop, whether by choice or through circumstance . . . We wait for our souls to catch up with our bodies.” -Eugene Peterson

Writer & Listener

You make thousands of decisions everyday. Many of them are second nature. I’m here for the ones that aren’t.

If you’ve ever made a pro/con list in the middle of the night, you already know that unmade decisions have power.

If you’ve ever experienced chronic hesitation because you’re afraid of making the wrong choice, you already know the dread of anticipated regret.

If you’ve ever experienced decision fatigue, you already know the low grade anxiety that hangs out just beneath the surface.

That’s why I wrote The Next Right Thing book, host The Next Right Thing podcast, and created a decision-making Guided Journal with the same name.

Everything I do is to help create space for your soul to breathe so that you can discern your next right thing.
