Welcome to your new EverAfter

‘A New EverAfter’ believes that true and lasting transformation occurs within the interplay of wisdom and wonder. Created by Spiritual Director, Bethany Ward, EverAfter is a life-enriching gathering place focused on personal development, self-discovery, and meaningful gifts. Above all, it is a space to engage with the art and practice of one-on-one Spiritual Direction while simultaneously offering you the opportunity to shop for inspirational items, gather with others within engaging classes and events, and to experience the numerous benefits of intentional living.

'A New EverAfter' sees your life journey as a sacred story. Our desire is to help you enrich, reframe, and celebrate that narrative. No matter how you choose to explore your story, together we will examine a new type of EverAfter, one that exalts the process and not the destination. This EverAfter is not about a perception of a happy ending but about redefining your present and rediscovering who you truly are; mindfully, holistically, and practically.
