Dr. Amy Fuller has a passion for helping others heal and grow emotionally, spiritually and relationally with others and into a deeper connection with the presence of God. One avenue for the expression of this passion is guided meditative prayer, available online at http://www.christianmeditativeprayer.org/, a direct result of her own experiences in spiritual direction. Additionally, Amy enjoys speaking at retreats and workshops creatively blending a passion for Jesus Christ with her professional insight to deliver thought-provoking and empowering messages of growth, hope, and transcendence.
