Spiritual Formation Coaching
We all get some form of spiritual formation growing up, but what is it based on? Have you formed your view of God from your personal experiences, others' opinions, TV, social media, books, philosophers, etc?
You know when something is missing from your life. Do you have questions regarding God, your faith, your identity, or your purpose? Who can you talk to that you trust?
I can relate to you because I have been there. If we are honest, we all have had these questions because God created all of us to be inquisitive about discovering more about Him and find meaning beyond just existence. He placed eternity in our hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11). He wants us to know Him and find answers. I asked God for wisdom and discernment as I searched for the truth and I found my answers. I want to help you find your answers.
I want to help you find what is missing in your life so you can live your life confidently and abundantly as you walk in truth. Like other women I have coached, you will discover what really matters to you and succeed in reaching your goals. You can know the one true God, be assured of your personal faith, know who God designed you to be, discover your deepest passion, and get clarity on your purpose. Live your life with joy and impact.
Do you want to leave a legacy or an inheritance?
Daniel Henderson, in his book, The Deeper Life, writes that “You will discover your theology is the basis of your identity. Your identity is expressed through a clear purpose. Your purpose is guided by values. Your values determine your priorities. Your priorities are implemented by your goals. Your goals are accomplished by your stewardship of time. And all of this, when understood clearly and embraced daily, results in a legacy that really matters.”
My Personal Crisis of Faith
When I hit a spiritual “wall" in 2006, I experienced a crisis of faith. It was horrible and unexpected and was prompted by a traumatic event. I had to make a life-altering, critical decision. I came face-to-face with this question: Would my faith in God sustain me or would I walk away from it?
Any traumatic event can cause a crisis of faith. Subsequently, we question everything we believe about God. I did. I questioned His love, acceptance, goodness, and grace. I had suddenly lost my job and had no idea what had happened. I told myself that if God really loved me, He would have prevented this horrible pain. I, too, asked God “Why? What are you doing? What do you want from me? Where are you?”
The day it happened, I went home, fell on the floor, curled up in a ball, and cried. Confused and terrified, I did not know what to do. I experienced sleepless nights, anxiety, depression, and wanted God to kill me. Really. I just wanted to hide in a hole and never have to face life again. Since I was single and my parents were deceased, I called friends who tried to understand, but they were speechless and confused too.
The answer I had to wrestle with was, “Am I going to move forward in my faith and hold onto God and believe that He unconditionally loves me or was I going to walk away from God and my faith?” I had to come face-to-face with my self-sufficiency, wounds, unforgiveness, insecurities, doubts, and fears. Everything rested on whether I was going to surrender myself totally to God and believe in His love and goodness and follow His plan for my life, or was I going to trust myself more and follow my plan. Did I have enough courage to ask God what He wanted from me or was I going to continue on in my inner pain? Was it finally time to face the truth about myself?
God brought me through the “wall” in His time. I did not bring myself through it. I couldn’t. Going through the “wall” took courage and a lot of very hard work. On the other side, I did not recognize myself. God had completely changed me. Not only had I had survived the grueling “wall” experience, but I was also healed. Only then did I know my true purpose and believe and trust God’s deep love for me. Only then did I have the freedom to love others unconditionally and allow love into my life. Lastly, only then could I live out the deepest desires of my heart.
If you can identify with my “wall” experience and crisis of faith, let me come along beside you as you find answers to your piercing spiritual questions, confront your insecurities, wounds, and doubt, and live out your deepest desires.
