    Hello and Welcome!

    I’m so glad you found me and my journey.

    You’re invited to join me as I wander the way of life and ponder the path of God. I’ll share some musings, ideas, prayers, family recipes, and some of our inn-keeping experiences! 

    I'm looking for the sacred in the daily journey.

  • Today is your day trip.

    Are you walking through this day in prayer?

    We can't pray yesterday - we can't pray tomorrow.

    Today is all we have!

    Join me on a pathway of prayer?

    a little about me:

    I'm Kathi.

    I'm a wife, a mother, a retired homeschool mom,

    an innkeeper. I read. I write. I pray.

    My husband and I live in a historic B&B,

    aiming to provide a restful stay for sojourners

    and a gathering place for family and friends.

  • a bit about my book:

    Prayer PathWay: Journeying in a Life of Prayer

    published in 2013 by GatheredTogether

    and in 2016 by P&R Publishing

    Prayer PathWay is one result of my own thirty-five year prayer journey. As I walked life’s path of joy and pain, I longed for a guide that would help me to pray when I couldn’t find refrains to reflect my happiness or laments to echo my sorrow. So I read book after book after book, searching for guidance for the mystery of prayer. But it was all there - in my own Bible - words breathed by God, through humans; words that have strengthened and awed God’s people throughout the centuries since Christ walked His own earthly path of joy and pain to the cross. As I opened my eyes to behold the wonders in the Word, I was strengthened for the journey. And my desire for the Word was ignited by seeing what God had for me there.


    As I started to use my Bible as a prayer book, I saw a path of prayer emerge. I saw that God’s people were praising, repenting, asking, yielding, thanking, and rejoicing — over and over, in all situations, through all generations.


    In my other reading, I saw that since ancient times, God’s wise ones have attempted to put their journeys into words. Those words have left a trail to strengthen the hearts and fuel the prayers of subsequent sojourners like me. I saw the timeless truths of the Bible underscored but not replaced, echoing down the centuries—pointing me to Christ.


    Using the Bible in prayer gave me a prayer voice that was more sure and settled than my own. I began to tread a path of prayer that has helped me pray through my days.

    I was able to rejoice in hope, to be patient in trials, to be constant in prayer; humbled by the knowledge that Jesus walked this way before and encouraged but the fact that he was with me now!

  • some kind things people have said:

    Prayer PathWay is original in its connection and brilliantly structured — and it does just what it promises! This beautiful book rides on the vast sea of God’s Word and draws its life from its depths…Here is a volume that will ignite the prayers and fire the devotion of every reader/sojourner. There is nothing quite like Prayer PathWay.

          - R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton; Visiting Professor, practice Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia;  author of Disciplines of a Godly Man, Disciplines of a Godly Family, and others

    Prayer PathWay is a peek into the lessons learned by a seasoned prayer-warrior…Laden with Scripture, this volume is inspirational, educational, and intensely practical…I highly commend this outstanding resource to you as you consider your part in the great work and blessing of prayer.

    - Sally Michael, Cofounder, Truth:78; author of God’s Names, God’s Words, God’s

    Providence, More Than a Story, and others

    Prayer is a profound privilege and yet such a mystery. Kathi will help you to learn to pray in such a way as to appreciate both. Her acrostic provides a helpful, insightful concept, and the historical quotes about prayer are a great addition to the book.

            - Susan Hunt, Former Director of Women’s Ministries, Presbyterian Church in

    America; Author, Prayers of the Bible, Spiritual Mothering, and others

    Prayer PathWay will help you to organize your prayer life. Its purpose is that simple. But it’s more than just a prayer organizer. This tool is also the fruit of countless hours both in prayer and thinking about prayer by Kathi…Every Christian can benefit from the Scriptures the author has collected for each topic, as well as the suggestions of how to pray for others…there’s something here for just about every Christian looking for helping prayer.

    - Donald S. Whitney, Professor of Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; Author, Praying the Bible, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life
