leadership and spiritual formation coach

I am passionate about coaching Christian women around Spiritual Formation. My purpose is to help you become aware of what your image of God is and subsequently aware of what you are believing about your identity. 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.”

We all get some form of spiritual formation growing up, but what is it based on? Have you formed your view of God from opinions, TV, social media, books, philosophers, etc?

My early childhood and teenage years were clouded by rejection and bullying. In early adulthood, I pulled away from everybody and, I must admit, some from God. Sorrow from loss, suffering and chronic disappointment led me to isolate myself so I could limit my vulnerability to suffering. Needless to say, I lived a lonely and depressed life.

Even after giving my life to Christ at age 9, I did not believe God loved me or accepted me. The pain was just too intense from the suffering and loss. Why had he created me? I not only questioned his love but also his goodness.  I strived to find my value (worth) in anything and everything the world deemed important but, it all left me empty and still searching. Nothing satisfied the hunger for unconditional love, acceptance, and belonging. The more I sought affirmation and love, the more frustrated I became and the more they eluded me.

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 showed me my pride and self-sufficiency through the worst experience in my life, brokenness, I began to heal. It was the first time I really saw God and His unconditional love for me. The book is both transparent and raw. In addition, I talk about how God healed me emotionally and showed me how to forgive others as well as myself. He restored me in every area.

I have questioned God more than once and I have come 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.

The only way to truly know God is to read his word and communicate with him on a personal level. God desires for us to know him. We know him through our minds. Ask yourself, " Do I know of God, or do I know him?" And, once you know HIm, "How much of you wants to move information about God in the mind to revelation in the heart of who God is with faith and trust?" It is always your choice.

Spiritual Formation coaching will help get to know the God you may not know, the Jesus you may not know, clarify your theology on who God is to you, and clarify your faith. It will help you discover 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 he created into your career, purpose, and life.

I tried desperately to find my purpose for being here, even as a Christian, for years. Until I knew and understood my identity and exactly how God had created me, I was searching in vain.

What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.
