About

Come on a journey to… connecting to our true self, to each other, and to God

Holy Paths is an ecumenical ministry for those who yearn for a deeper walk with God in the midst of a busy, complicated world. We know there is more to the abundant life than we are experiencing with endless demands on our time and energies at work, in the community, the home, and the church. Yet a deeper spirituality eludes us.

Christians of all denominations are beginning to rediscover the ancient spiritual disciplines which give order and balance to life through solitude and community, renewal and work, prayer and service. Joan Chittester describes spirituality as the way we express a living faith in a real world. It “does not set out to avoid life…. but to live the ordinary life extraordinarily well.”

Susanne Hassell founded Holy Paths in 2006 as a full-time ministry dedicated to helping others develop spiritual disciplines, find renewal in their busy lives, and teach others her knowledge to pass along for future generations.  Holy Paths  services are for anyone seeking an intimate relationship with God.
Jesus calls us to “love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”  (John 13:35)

She is a member of Spiritual Directors, Intl. and has years of experience walking alongside people in their faith journeys.

Susanne’s background prior to running Holy Paths full-time included teaching biblical principles to children and adults, leading small groups, hosting and leading retreats, and conducting training workshops.  She also founded and directed three preschool programs in Knoxville and Mobile, AL.
