Assembly Required

I have a handy coaching tool called G.R.O.W. Per the usual when working with a tool and growing a life, there is some assembly required. (I worked for an organization that spoke in the Acronym language. Foreign at the outset, if one studied well and long enough, you too could become proficient in Acronym-speak. I […]

Post-Retreat Sneak Peak: $5 Challenge

It was the last morning of the weekend women’s retreat. The theme? Desires & Longings – embedded in the message that unpacked the stages from sleeping through our dreams, facing our fear of the unknown, and into active participation with the Lord that produces desires and longings fulfilled.

Big Hair Days

God knows we all proceed through life one day at a time. No matter how much giddy-up we try to manufacture, there are some days the hurrier we go the behinder we get. Then there are those awesome big hair days when even your hair is confident. I love big hair days. Those ‘up at […]

Celebrating Six Decades in the Land of the Living

I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me; I was overcome by trouble and sorrow. Then I […]

Precious Pearls

Precious pearls and pigs.  As a life coach, I get the opportunity to meet and engage with a variety of people as does my husband, the counselor. People from all walks of life. Each one has a personal story compiled of relationships, experiences, and opportunities or lack thereof. No two are alike. Not in life’s […]

Bring Home the Harvest
