Wild With Words (WWW) as a spiritual writing practice draws forth from us words that reveal, words of connection, creative words, and words full of healing. With a non-judgmental and improvisational spirit, we begin with a prompt (words, pictures, an address or name, objects, sounds, something outside, just about anything) and let our pens lead us into varied expressions on the page. WWW is an easy to learn, playful, inexpensive, and portable practice for writers young and old, those who are excited, hesitant, or not quite sure.

Rev. Dr. Martha Brunell is a spiritual director, retreat and workshop leader, and writer who lives on prairie land in northern Illinois. She has been a pastor in the United Church of Christ for many years and is also currently a hospital chaplain/facilitator in Advance Care Planning. Uniting the diverse aspects of her ministry is a commitment to listen with others as they discover the sound of their genuine voice, which guides and grounds them from the depths of their soul.
