Mission Statement

As a coach, I help you develop the mindset to bridge the gap between your current reality and your desired state of being.

My blog exists to share my faith journey through personals stories of tragedy, triumph, and encounters with the gospel. It is my prayer that those who read my words will find hope, healing, and encouragement through them.

Hello There,

My world is far from perfect. Just like you, I face challenges daily. Some of these challenges are the fault of no one other, than myself. Others are due to circumstances that are beyond my control. At times, I step out of an adventure, victorious. At other times, I come through beaten, bruised, and with one heck of a story to tell.

In addition to my coaching practice, I also share glimpses of my personal story on my blog. It is my hope and prayer that you will find hope in what I share. And if not, I pray that you will at least laugh along with me as some of the funnier ones are shared.

An old friend of mine once told me that God never wastes a hurt. It is my prayer that not one of my hurts will be wasted. Instead, I pray that they shine light into whatever challenges that you may be facing today.
