Margaret Silf was born and raised in South Yorkshire, U.K. She was baptized a Methodist, joined the Anglican Church at 15, and was received into the Roman Catholic faith at 20. She experienced a genuine return to God, however, in her mid-30s, aided by a Jesuit. Today she calls herself a “boundary dweller,” no longer belonging to a particular Christian denomination and more at home outside the institutional church than within. In the 1990s she studied with the Jesuits of the British Province and began incorporating Ignatian spiritual practices into her daily life.
Formerly a technical writer for the computer industry in Great Britain, Silf took early retirement to devote more of her time to creative forms of writing, accompanying others in their prayer journeys and leading retreats. Her writing springs from personal prayer and is an expression of her own journey with God.
