 “Come with me, by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”  Jesus

During a 2013 sabbatical in Ireland and Greece, John & Kim discovered that silence, quiet contemplation, and prayer- while seeking to follow Jesus as he called- was really somewhat missing from their lives.

Today, the Quinleys are joyfully following Him in this “new and living”, but ancient way. Indeed, John and Kim are now finding it an exciting calling to help others find quiet paths as they follow Jesus.

Since 2013, John experienced many days away in silence on the Andaman Sea in Southern Thailand, at Seven Fountains Retreat Center in Chiang Mai, as well as, in the mountains of Khao Yai in the Northeast of Thailand.
