Praise for the Listen For Joy Art Card Decks
Let me tell you how much I appreciate your beautiful art work and the booklet of accompanying reflections and practices. I meditate every morning and have been praying with one of the images every day.

My clients *love* these,

It is wonderful, exciting and exhilarating to share these cards with a small group of women who have incredible ability and insight to find spiritual meaning in these cards for themselves. We share while listening deeply then have good discussions. I continue to be amazed and inspired by your art.

Your cards go beyond a specific faith tradition to the core what it means to be a person of faith and the things that often prevent us from being able to trust, believe, hope, and love.

I think the day is coming when spiritual directors will not be able to imagine their work without your cards as a necessary tool. The experiences with my directees are powerful, meaningful and bring them so close to a loving divine Presence.

We used your art cards as the final prompt [in a writing retreat]. We each chose a card to find out what it was we still needed to write this weekend. The writing went deep and was beautiful. One young woman said to me afterward, “I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to write, but as soon as I saw the image, I knew.”

[Drawing a card] doesn’t take a lot of time, but it gives a lot.

From the Booklet Introduction
This art can’t wait to spend time with you, ask you good questions, and give you a boost when you’re struggling and need to remember hope and joy. I know this because they’ve been so good to me and my students, clients, and friends over the years.
Personally, I often draw a card with prayerful intention when I feel unsure, frustrated, or afraid, to see what message I receive. With a client in a listening session, we might pick an image and wonder about how it relates to their spiritual journey. In a group, I sometimes invite each person to choose a card and tell a story about what they see and feel.
I believe these art cards want to go to new places, meet new people, and start fresh conversations about things that matter. Where will you take them? Maybe they’ll visit homes, dorm rooms, places of worship, retreat centers, schools, hospitals, prisons, office buildings, or even halls of government.
And how will you use them? Maybe once a year for a conference or workshop session, once a month in a book group chat, once a week to give away to a loved one, or once a day as a personal prompt for journal writing. You and the art cards will find so many ways and places to experience each other. I’m curious to know what will unfold!
