Why Did I Choose Spiritual Formation Coaching?
I am passionate about coaching Christian women around Spiritual Formation. My purpose is to help you know who God is, deepen your faith, grow spiritually, and uncover how God "wired" you for your unique purpose. Kenneth Boa, in Conformed To His Image, said that "Our image of God shapes our spiritual direction and future." David Jeremiah said that "One of the reasons we don’t love God and trust Him as much as we should is because we don’t know Him as well as we ought.”
I struggled to believe God loved me and accepted me for years because the suffering and losses that I had experienced were too intense. Why had he created me? How could a God who is all love and all good allow such pain? How could he accept me when no one else did? I concluded that "I was not enough." I strived to find my value (worth) in anything and everything the world deemed important but, it all left me empty. Nothing satisfied the hunger for unconditional love, acceptance, and belonging. The more I sought affirmation and love through what the world deemed important, the more frustrated I became and the more they eluded me. I finally realized that my view of God had been totally invalid. Once I knew the one true God of the Bible, everything changed.
My book, Sacred Love; A Journey of Singleness, Belonging, and Finding True Love, details my spiritual journey of moving from the victim of emotional wounding to the victor. When God brought me to my knees and took me through the most excruciating experience in my life, brokenness, I began to see him and his unconditional love for me. My story is hard to read, but it ends up great and when you finish it, you will have hope.
I have to admit that I have questioned God more than once. At one point, I came face-to-face with the question of whether or not I would abandon my faith when, without warning, I ran into my crisis of faith in my time of brokenness. If you are questioning God and his character, I have been exactly where you are and I know how you feel.
Spiritual Formation coaching will help you discover God and his work in you, through you, and around you. You will see how he has perfectly created you with regards to your values, talents, gifts, and strengths. Only then will you truly know your identity and be able to implement the uniquely created you into your career, purpose, and life.
I tried desperately to find my purpose for being here for years. Until I knew and understood my identity and exactly how God had created me, I was searching in vain.
