Years ago I thought I was going crazy. I was anxious and scared. I woke up in a state of fight or flight and went to bed the same way. I was miserable. Realizing I could not continue to live that way…and honestly, not wanting to, I sought counseling. Providentially, the counselor was a Biblical counselor and he helped me change my life!
For the first time in my life I was taught I didn’t have to think about every thought that popped into my head. I could accept it or reject it; intentionally asking myself, “Is this thought serving me?” And if it wasn’t, I could reject it and replace it.
Sounds so simple. And simple it was…but simple doesn’t equal easy. As a matter of fact, it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I remember telling my husband on many occasions, “This hurts—spiritually, emotionally, mentally…even physically and physiologically. I feel like I’m changing my DNA!”
I started sharing my journey and the concepts and ideas I was learning on my blog. (The Truth About Me & Bible Quotes). Women responded in the comments and via email, and each of us felt a little less alone and a little less crazy.
Fast forward to the beginning of 2023 when I knew I was being called to be a Christian Life Coach. The first step was to join the program as a participant and then after a period of time apply to enter Coaches Certification. This was an easy decision, despite the financial hurdle, and I’ve spent the better part of this year in intense personal development and training to be certified as a Christian Life Coach.
I started accepting coaching clients in September and let me tell you something, coaching days are my favorite! The honor and privilege I feel when I get to come alongside woman who vulnerably share their story with me because they know, something needs to change, is pure joy. It is the realization that I have stepped into my God-given, spiritual gift to know, love, serve, and share Him in this beautiful capacity as a Life Coach.
