What is Life Coaching?

The stakes that landscapers use for newly planted trees provide a great metaphor for coaching.  These stakes are there to support the tree so it can thrive and grow, and after a while they are removed.  Similarly, coaches come alongside people in times of growth, change, or hardship in order to support and encourage them for a time.

Learning and Growing Together {Home, Part 7}

This is the final post in a series of posts on how home is the starting place for lived-out-love – a place where the needs of the whole person are cared for.  This week we’ll consider how we care for each others’ need to learn and grow as individuals, which includes encouraging and celebrating each other!  Over a series of six posts, we’ve explored the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual aspects of home. We also considered how we extend love to others beyond our home.  Home looks different throughout the seasons of life; yet we all need these aspects of home and can build them in intentional and creative ways!  I began this series with this verse:
