How is your life working for you right now?

Are you feeling…

Lost? confused? alone? stuck?
Need an outside perspective and some wisdom?

You didn’t wake up this morning and think, “Today is the day I need to hire a coach.”

But I would put money down that you woke up this morning, you sweet woman, and within about thirty seconds, your top problem or two (or ten!) flooded your mind and burdened your heart.

(amiright or amiright? you and i both know that I’m right.)

And your problem was probably something like this:

-I hate my husband
-I don’t want to go to work today
-I’m tired of being tired all the time
-I wish I were someone else
-My life is a mess
-What am I going to do about…my son?, my marriage?, the affair I know he’s having?, this anxiety?, this depression?, this fill-in-the-blank?

I want to help you not just fix your problem but transform your heart and mind.

I have been you, I promise you. But I have been through pain in the shapes of a hard marriage, a divorce, single parenting, anxiety, financial stress, depression, issues with my children, painful relationships, you name it! In fact, I can sometimes still be you! I don’t have all the answers! BUT, I do have Jesus. And I have walked these roads and want to help you walk yours.

Are you tired of being sad and stuck and confused and doing the same thing over and over again?

Do me a favor. Fill this out. It’ll take you about three minutes. And then I’ll get back to you with a custom coaching proposal designed just for you.

Let’s start waking up feeling a bit more hopeful, shall we?

Creating a manifesto

I was fortunate enough to be a part of the first divorce group.

I was blown away with how much it helped me.

From the weekly tips and assignments to the webcasts and especially the personal phone calls from Elisabeth to me, all were such a blessing and well worth the money.

Elisabeth is a Proverbs 31 woman. Proverbs 31:26: “She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.”

Elisabeth is the sweetest and wisest woman I know who has walked the same path many of us are on.

I know money is tight for all of us and I wondered when I signed up if I could afford spending this money on me.

I can say without any hesitation now that I could not have afforded not to be a part of this and I’m so glad I did.

coaching client

I wanted to thank you for your willingness to walk beside women like me in difficult marriages and those who have experienced divorce.

Your generosity of spirit and caring are a gift.

Thank you for the opportunity to share and for what you’ve shared. God has used you as a link in my chain and I feel better off for having participated. Thank you again for your time and guidance.

It is so good to speak with someone who knows and has walked this walk.

coaching client

Thank you so much for everything. Your coaching, support group, emails … All have made a huge difference in my life.

I’m not stuck in pain or anger or bitterness any longer, all because you showed me there is a different and much better way to live my life.

I will always be grateful to you.

coaching client

Thank you for all your time and help.
I already feel less alone than I did a month ago.

It is so nice knowing that there is someone out there who completely gets it. Thank you for being non-judgmental and so encouraging.

Your coaching came along at a time when I really needed it.

coaching client

Just wanted to say thanks for your divorce coaching;
it was so helpful during such a painful time.

Just being able to talk to someone who has been there and who is not going to judge me but just listen and understand was wonderful.
