Go to the NextStep or School of Spiritual Direction Application Form link. Click on the link to open the application form (which is a PDF file).
Once you have the form open, go to the File menu, and choose Save as.
Save the form to your computer. Any location will do, including the desktop. Just make sure you save it to a location where you will be able to find the file.
Close your browser.
Go to the location on your computer where you saved the PDF School of Spiritual Direction or NextStep Application Form.
Open the School of Spiritual Direction or NextStep Application Form (PDF) using Adobe Reader. There are other programs you can use, including Adobe Acrobat and FoxPro reader. However, DON'T open the PDF file with a web browser.
Fill out the form.
When you have finished filling out the form, go to the File menu, and choose Save as.
Save the application form as a new (separate) file. The easiest way to do that is to change the file name. You can change the file name by adding the number 2; as an example, change the file name to nextstepapplicationform2016-2.pdf or ssdapplicationform2016-2.pdf.
Finally, attach the application to your email and send to email@example.com.
