All of us have stories in our lives through which we can connect with and encourage others! I’ve experienced God using my story so I can share empathy, encouragement, and support with others. Some great joys in my life have been living life as a Christ-follower, marrying my best friend, and having my dream career as homemaker with two delightful daughters. Some of my sorrows and stresses have included the death of my father, a miscarriage, transitions in church, and moving.Life and Family: Richard and I make a great team as we explore and journey through life together. It’s been exciting to see how our CliftonStrength themes work together, as some of them are very different from each other. We currently live in southern Utah, where there are endless opportunities for outings and hikes as a family! As a homemaker, I’m passionate about creating a sense of haven in our home and mentoring my girls as they near the teen years.
Strengths and Ministry: Coaching is a natural expression of my spiritual gifts, which include hospitality, exhortation, and shepherding. My Top 5 CliftonStrength themes are Responsibility, Empathy, Discipline, Connectedness, and Positivity.
In my coaching, I have learned much from a variety of ministry experiences. I have served as Assistant Children’s Ministry Director, mentored college students and women, facilitated Bible studies, taught adult Sunday school, led a mom’s group, hosted and co-led small groups in our home, co-led a greeting team, served as a marriage mentor together with my husband, and volunteered as a MOPS Mentor Mom.
Training: I am a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, as well as a Christian Life Coach, certified by the Board of Christian Life Coaching. Through Light University Online, I have completed an Advanced Diploma in Christian Life Coaching.
