On the Accompaniment Training...

Posted in Testimonials

  • The Accompaniment course hit me right-on with very practical steps on how to walk with others and to see the bigger picture (something I have been in need of) of where I am on my own journey as well as how to help my family and parish. The stressing of a focus on Jesus, not being silent, praying with people now, healing, the importance of stories & listening, and many other items were also a great capstone.  

    I have been “drinking out of firehouse” of our Catholic Faith since having an experience of the love of Jesus in January of this year.  My wife had experienced a similar encounter at that time as well, which has been great has been a blessing to walk together. We have experienced many small (& a few large) transformations over the last 8-months and the accompaniment training has been one more step on this journey.

  • This was the first formation event that I have attended, and I fully plan on attending the rest of the series. This was material that I will go back to again and again.  Kristin was an excellent speaker - I appreciated her directness, and also her including group discussion and prayer times.  I am looking forward the next session!

  • I felt the topic was very timely as we search for new understandings and the HOW of applying evangelization skills to our ministry.  It was the most informative, formational, and nourishing event I have been to hosted by the Arch[diocese] so far.  I plan to implement this immediately by focusing more on providing encounters with Jesus, not just providing programs, and spending more time and effort accompanying individuals in my parish, especially my youth.

  • As this year has been a struggle for me in my new assignment, I feel as if Holy Spirit sent Kristin FOR ME! There was so much that she articulated that was on my heart but I did not know how to put it into words or action. My time last week left me with 11 different statements that I am posting next to my desk as I make may plans for the young people in my parish next year.

  • THANK YOU Burning Hearts Disciples! The online prayer scaffolds you directed me to in the packet, Sacred Space and Pray as You Go, have been invaluable over the past few days as I quit all of my procrastinating and really buckle down on building my relationship with Jesus. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!

  • I received personal recommendations in areas I expressed wanting additional knowledge in.  I loved how it was customized to my life. The surveys and questionnaires my companion used were really helpful. They really touched on all areas of our faith and shined a light on areas that I personally wasn't as tuned in with.

  • The most helpful aspect of the Burning Hearts has been my family's Faith Growth Plan and the one-to-one attention and guidance we got from our Disciple.  This mentoring was invaluable!  Knowing that there are like-minded hearts to encourage us no matter where our ministries and professions take us helped us grow as spouses, parents, and lay ministers.

  • "I just wanted to say thanks for doing your presentation at the first reconciliation retreat last weekend...It was definitely a better experience than I had anticipated compared to past experiences. What I most enjoyed were the practical tips on incorporating faith into our hectic daily schedules. I will definitely be trying some of them."

  • The concept that we really need to engage families early on is a missing piece to our ministry. The concept of the "Theology of the Family" helped me to see how I can refocus my efforts to evangelize families. I plan to use the idea of meeting the new families in my program in their homes.

  • I’ve been thinking about the witness on your family you shared at the Discipleship Formation Seminar I and I am so thankful that you did. It struck me so profoundly and beautifully, that I am still thinking about it. Your courage and the way you were able to simply be honest really resonated with me and my own family, so thank you. Thank you for being willing to share it because it encouraged me to pursue my own healing. It still has a long way to go, but it’s on its way.

  • The presenter, Kristin, is “on fire” with the Holy Spirit! I am so thankful for her knowledge and stepping out of the way to let the Holy Spirit do his work.

  • My catechists and I really enjoyed your talk on discipleship and catechesis. I think many really did have a few “take-aways” they will be incorporating into their lives and those children and youth they serve.

  • I was born, raised, baptized, and confirmed Catholic, but never experienced much exposure in the Catholic Church to having a one-on-one relationship with God.  I found myself looking elsewhere to get the 'know how' to learn how to do that.  I  am SO pleased that this study emphasized and focused on our personal relationship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit firmly within a Catholic context.
