Pray Believe Trust and Act

Every morning, I take a 1/2 hour and pray and meditate in the small chapel we have where I stay in Spokane. Prayer is connected to the word listening. It is a deep listening to one’s self and to what is beyond one’s self. Quite often, insights I had not considered appear at that quiet time that is set aside just to listen deeply in the silences between the words I say.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.
