Christian Life Coaching, Spiritual Direction and Mentoring
– Improving our conscious contact with God –
Times of growth and transformation in our lives are usually accompanied by spiritual awakenings. Such awakenings involve a renewed sense of purpose and meaning to our lives and the overcoming of limiting and negative thinking along with an abiding sense of growing peace and calm. When this process of awakening becomes the focus of life coaching, coaching becomes spiritual mentoring and a form of Christian discipleship.
Christian life coaching also acknowledges the importance of developing a discipline of daily prayer, meditation and scripture reading as key to healthy spiritual growth. By these means we seek to improve our conscious contact with God praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
So.. Untie the knots, throw off the moorings, leave your safe harbour and let the Spirit of God fill your sails. . . .

– Calling, vocation and personal life-vision, –
Our sense of calling or vocation will lead us into further transformations as we pass through the different seasons or stages of life. Each stage of our life will have its own unique challenges and pattern of death and rebirth . As Jesus said:
Unless a grain of wheat falls on the ground and dies, it remains a single grain; but, if it dies, it yields a rich harvest.” – John 12:24
– My mission statement as a Christian life-coach is: to discern, promote and inspire the divine connection and wisdom in us all –
As your life coach my job is to stand with you, to be your ally, and to support you as you go through a process of change, learning how to open your heart to the Scriptures, to God’s wisdom, and how to hear God’s prophetic word speaking directly into your heart.
I will do this by asking you open ended questions and by giving you honest feedback and encouragement. I will also pray for you and with you. I will help you set positive, relevant, practical and inspiring goals that will significantly improve your quality of life as you learn how to consult and respond to your own heart-wisdom, a wisdom which is given to you by God Himself.
– The ultimate goal of Christian life coaching, mentoring and spiritual direction is destiny discovery and/or recovery in Christ –
Christian life coaching is oriented towards destiny discovery (or recovery) and with helping you honour and deepen not just your growing relationship to God, but also your core values, hopes and dreams, with a new inspiration to put them into practice.
