Creating a new thing, even if started in solitude, eventually involves others–some of whom are absolutely critical to the success of said “new thing.” This website is no exception. Born of a desire to create and share my practices, writing, and retreats further into our world, I had incredible help and mentorship along the way. To each of the people below, I owe much gratitude–far more than words can ever express:
- Lacy Clark Ellman, author, spiritual director, graphic designer and owner of A Sacred Journey. Lacy is responsible for capturing my soul’s “look and feel” and translating that into a web design. I believe she’s succeeded beyond measure and I am forever grateful. I also might add that Lacy graciously guided, educated, and held my hand lovingly along the way. I cannot recommend Lacy’s work highly enough.
- Sibyl Dana Reynolds, author, spiritual director, Foundress of The Sisters of Belle Coeur, colleague and dear friend. Sibyl and I have known each other for over 20 years and she’s been an incredible spiritual guide and spiritual sister to me this entire time. So much of who I am today has been wisely guided, shaped and blessed by Sibyl’s calm presence, natural wisdom and listening skills, and encouraging words. Please explore her website for many incredible offerings and words of wisdom: www.sibyldanareynolds.com.
In addition, many wonderful friends provided various levels and offers of help and encouragement along the way: Frances Banks, Linda Secord, Sarah MacDougall, and Mary Anne Dorner. Thank you, wise women–for all of the ways you enrich my life.
My next expression of endless gratitude I’ve saved for my husband and partner extraordinaire: John Sager. His kind words, hugs, belief in me, calm demeanor, endless love, wonderful cooking, and endurance for my screaming and sighing behind closed office doors while I struggled to learn the vagaries of WordPress are beyond compare. I could not have done it without him.
Finally, there is the Great Creator, without whom none of this is possible. I give my deepest thanks and love for the trust, guidance, and love you provide me each day I’m in this realm.
My love, respect and admiration for all…

Pamela, your new website is a testament to your wisdom, creative spirit, vast experience, and your fierce passion for truth-telling, the power of story, and the value of spiritual understanding. Blessings to you as you inspire others through your work and illuminated presence. I’ll be visiting here time and again.

Love your new website, Pamela. I know you have struggled to birth it, but now that it is born I hope that it brings you great joy to know that it will continue to develop and grow and get better and better. Onward we go, dear sister!
Thank you, Mary Anne! It has been a wonderful process and I do look forward to truly making it better and stronger. So excited to have you join us in Iowa at OLP next fall. Onward!

Pamela, I just got off the phone with a lovely man who is a Catholic Chaplain in search of understanding story and compassion… and I am confidently sending him your way… so took the opportunity to really look again at this site. I love how eclectic it is–it is you–in all its complexity of practices and skills and core strength in connection to Spirit. The site gives people an understanding of what kind of depth they can leap into with your guidance and companionship. Thanks for putting this together. Blessings, Christina
I too love your website and would appreciate getting the contact for folks who helped you do it.

Wonderfuⅼ blog! Do you have any tips for aspiгing writers?
I’m hopіng to staгt my own blog soon but I’m a little
lоst on everything. Woulԁ yօu propose staгting with a free plаtform like WordPress or go for
a paid option? Theгe are so many choіces out there that I’m completely
overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Cheers!
Thank you for your kind words.
It really depends on how much time you have for learning how to build a site. I do recommend WordPress–it’s the industry standard (or was, when I built my site.) I did hire a designer, though–because although I know what I like, I’m clueless about making a site “visually appealing and simple.” I’m really glad I hired someone to help me. All the best as you research and build your site. Warmly, Pamela
