Battling To Trust God's Goodness ?
What Are You Believing To Be True About Yourself and God That Isn't?

You retire from your career, not your calling.
What is your calling?

Who am I?
What is my purpose?

Are you defined by the world or God?
Tired of emptiness?

Why Did I Choose Spiritual Formation Coaching?

leadership and spiritual formation coach

I am passionate about coaching Christian women who are questioning their faith, battling God's love and goodness, or feel forsaken and alone. I have been there, so I understand.  For me, there was a season in my life when it was hard to take a deep breath or even want to live.  My life seemed hopeless due to loss, pain, and failure. There were so many questions that I wanted God to answer, but he was silent. I was in a battle with God about His love and goodness for me. What's happening? Why me? How can you (God) love me and allow this pain? How can I trust you (God) if I don't think you really love me?  

I was in a very dark place, a deep pit, with regards to my Christian faith. This abyss of darkness caused my view of God to become extremely distorted and invalid. Maybe you, too, are in a dark place with similar questions and wondering if God hears your cry for help.

I had a choice and so do you. I could remain stuck in the darkness of my soul or I could face my false self with all my secrets, wounds, insecurities, and doubts. What did I expect from God? It took perseverance, courage, and a deep desire for healing and restoration for me to move forward. But, that's not all. It also required of me a willingness to see the truth about myself as God revealed it to me. Awareness of who I had become was extremely difficult, convicting, and saddening.

Was I going to accept what God was showing me or contend with God and not believe the truth? Deciding not to believe and accept the truth would have left me stuck in my pain and darkness. My healing and transformation took time and forgiveness but, it was the best thing that ever happened to me.

My desire is to come along beside you as you go through the invaluable process of restoration and transformation. Like me, you will have to face your fears, your doubts, and your self-sufficiency. Getting past this dark season of your soul will require a strong commitment to move forward, courage, honesty, and a desire for restoration in your relationship with God.

Kenneth Boa, in Conformed To His Image, said that "Our image of God shapes our spiritual direction and future." David Jeremiah believes "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.

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