I am a Certified Professional Life Coach who specializes in personal, spiritual, and relationship coaching for women in the Chattanooga, TN area.
As a relationship coach, I walk with women who are dissatisfied with the drama that often play out in their most meaningful relationships and are motivated to change the negative impact this is having on them physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. They are women on a journey to restore joy, peace and harmony in their relationship with God, themselves, and others.
Here's a little of what I do and why I do it:
In order to change the trajectory of a life that seemed utterly hopeless after going through a divorce and several years of life as a single-mom, God stepped into my world and saved me. As I began my walk of faith with Jesus in this new-found relationship, He lovingly healed my broken heart and taught me how to cultivate healthier and holier relationships. This walk of faith ultimately enabled me to trust my heart to my current husband in marriage over 32 years ago!
As someone who continues to embrace change and envision how God might use my adversities for my good and His glory, I am grateful for His call to help women strengthen their walk with Him as they too embrace change, envision the future, and enhance their God-given potential.
With God's help, I journey with them as they seek to find a way out of their discouragement, unfulfillment, and frustration in their quest to become all He created them to be. As their coach, I encourage them to depend on God's power for establishing and preserving strong relational bonds while holding them accountable to carry out self-identified action steps they believe will result in a transformed life.
For over 25 years I have been bringing out God's best in others while serving in leadership, coaching, counseling, and mentoring roles in businesses, schools, colleges, churches, the community, and non-profit organizations. With compassionate support and the Holy Spirit's guidance I've worked with others to help build on their strengths and attain the personal growth or change they're committed to achieving.
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10 This verse motivates me to walk wisely in the good works God has prepared for me as a relationship coach. I am passionate about walking with women as they discover God's good works in their life so that they too may walk wisely in them!
On a more personal note...
Given the high statistic rates of failed second marriages with blended families, my 32-year marriage to Richard is definitely a testament to the grace and glory of our God. They have not all been easy years, but years where we have grown stronger in our faith and relationship as we constantly seek the Lord's help to live out the commitments we made in our vows to Him and to one another.
God doesn't waste anything, even the lessons we learn in our struggles. Therefore, I am grateful He has chosen me to walk with His daughters during their times of difficulty. I have so much passion, purpose and promise for the work and ministry He has called me to as a coach!
I am also the mother of an adult daughter and son-in-law; and proud to be called grandmama by my handsome fun-loving grandson and beautiful feisty granddaughter. They are my special blessings who keeps me young at heart and heavily dependent on prayer!
