God has anointed your life and ordained unique purposes for your journey long before you were even born.
(Psalm 31:13 “Certainly you made my mind and heart; you wove me together in my mother’s womb.”) Part of our quest and our purpose is to discover the passions, goals, talents, and gifts that we have been blessed with and have been called to.
Discovering and honing these is a way to serve God and others. Honoring our purpose and passion is where deep, meaningful, peace, joy, and fulfillment flourishes. Proverbs 20:5 “The purpose of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out.”
Each of us has gifts, talents, personalities, and passions. Whether you desire to crystallize your life mission statement through wellness, stress management, parenting, career, care-giving, faith, relationships, ministry, writing, weight loss, or even if you haven’t yet found your distinct path, Life Coaching will provide you with direction, encouragement, support, inspiration, accountability, tools, exercises, and assessments. Life Coaching will guide you in discerning your unique gifts, and strengths that will propel you to the next level of purpose, satisfaction, and productivity in multiple areas of your life’s focus. (1 John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.)
Christian Life Coaching is client driven. Rather than focusing on the past and on healing from pain and trauma like counseling does, Life Coaching focuses on now and on the future by equipping and empowering the “Coachee/Client” to make the purposeful and intentional goals, changes, and steps necessary to reach his/her maximum potential, and to recognize, organize, and achieve his/her God-given calling and purpose, while utilizing skills, talents, passions, and strengths.
As a Christian Life Coach, who focuses on Personal Development Coaching, I assist my clients in achieving abundance, pleasure, joy, purpose, engagement, meaning, and victory in all areas of their lives. I help my clients identify where they are, where they want to be, their resources and options, and together we create an action and accountability plan. (2 Corinthians 1:21-22 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.)
Many clients desire general coaching to determine their life purpose, or to achieve a career or relationship change. Some are stuck or are in a transitional phase of their life. They may seek coaching to overcome a block or a blind spot. Others want to improve or grow a very specific area or challenge in their life such as their health, wellness, parenting, co-parenting, special needs parenting, step-parenting, care-giving, publishing, self-care, sleep, travel/recreation, stress, loss, divorce, retirement, or spiritual development.
As a highly-trained Christian Life Coach, I save my clients time, energy, and money by assisting them in living their passion and achieving their goals. I assist my clients on their anointed journey so that they may come into the fullness of what God has for them.
