Hi, my name is Flyck Clift. My discernment process spanned three decades and three degrees before becoming clear. At Ridley, we want to help make the discernment process clearer for you through this Discernment series. Discernment is a 12 series resource designed for women in theological studies to explore their ministry interests and gain clarity on their God-given calling. Delivered monthly with the tools and prompts to help you identify and align your unique calling with opportunities within God's ministry.

What is Discernment?

Through the Discernment series explore deeper questions such as: 

  1. Where am I headed?  
  2. Can I do anything to figure out what God may be calling me to?  
  3. Do I trust God to tell me?  
  4. Am I hearing God? 


God invites us to bring all these questions to him (e.g., Matt 7:7; 21: 22; 1 Pet 5:7) and we have a choice in how we do this.It excites me to think of how God’s kingdom will thrive as more women overcome barriers to embrace and live out their God-given callings. If you are excited by this too then let me encourage you to subscribe now and know that God is overjoyed that you are seeking his guidance.
