My name is Jay Bryner, and I am curious about growth.

How do I grow?

How does God help us grow?

What can I do to foster growth around me instead of decay?

What is worthwhile, and what is waste?

This journey has led me to spend more than a decade living in a desert. I manage growth as I steward the local flora. I have become a Spiritual Director because of it. I encounter it daily as a husband and a father. I try to efficiently exercise my mind and body. I’m increasingly aware of the urge within me to choose the easy path and passively decline and atrophy.

Where does spiritual, mental, and physical strength come from?

How do I see both the forest and the trees?

What is the fruit that may be ahead of me?

This is my journey.
