How Can I Help You?

Q: Who do you work with and how can you help?  (You can hear me talk about all this here.) 

A: I believe deep in my bones that Jesus loves me and Jesus loves you.
I believe his healing of us and our wholeness are of utmost importance to him and therefore should be to us as well.
And I also believe that it’s not just healing for healing’s sake…but so that we are more able and open to spread his love, comfort and healing to those around us.

There are three primary groups of women on whom I focus my time, energy and resource-creation.

One group of women who have my heart are those in difficult marriages, because I have been there.
My job is to support these women by teaching them either how to stay in their hard marriages in more whole, sustainable and constructive ways OR by helping them find clarity to their most difficult decision of whether to stay married or leave their marriages temporarily or permanently.

I do this through one-on-one coaching and through my Marriage Methods e-course for those who are staying, and through my Decision Time e-course for those who are deciding their next steps. Marriage Methods and Decision Time run two times a year as a group coaching experience or can be taken anytime individually.

Another group of women I am committed to supporting are those who are separated or divorced, because I’ve been there too.
My job is to support these women by teaching them how to process their pasts and their marriages, grieve and heal from the endings, and learn how to move forward.

I do this through one-on-one coaching and through my Heartbreak to Hope e-course. Heartbreak to Hope runs three times a year as a group coaching experience or can be taken anytime individually.

And the final group of women consists of any woman who longs to know Jesus more deeply and desires to go deeper in her healing but who does not fall into the category of difficult marriage or being separated or divorced.

For you, I also offer one-on-one coaching. You may also go through any of my other e-courses. They are now available by registering for a 2-month, 4-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription to Deeper Journey, my Facebook group community for women pursuing more Jesus and more growth. When you join, you choose which courses you would like to take (see list below).

Now, before you dismiss all of this, thinking it’s out of reach because of financial reasons, head on over here for some of my thoughts.

Meaningful Life
One of my clients said to me recently, I know how to live. I know how to do laundry and make dinner and get myself to work. But I don’t know how to live a life.
After our session, I texted her. I told her I couldn’t stop thinking about what she said and that I had written this down in my notebook:
I don’t know how to live an {meaningful, authentic, non-reactionary, contented} life.
She texted back: Yes. That’s exactly it.
What so many of us are really after is a life filled with meaning. Pared down to the basics. Not so caught up in things that distract.  Do you want more meaning today? 

We will cover:
a slower pace

Relationships 201

…husbands… ex-husbands… children… adult children… stepchildren… in-laws… parents… friends… siblings… bosses… coworkers… neighbors…
