WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

Basically then, Life Coaching consists of conversations,

questions, and clarification between two individuals on

an equal standing, without manipulation or coercion,

to guide a client along a path towards his or her unique

God-given purpose. With this understanding, action

steps can be discussed. Discovering God-given purpose

will bring satisfaction and joy, as well as, glory to God.

Partnership and skills of a Life Coach can make the

difference in understanding and focusing on God's daring purposes and finding fulfillment. 

Stephen Covey says that "When you really listen to another person from their point of view, and reflect back to them that understanding, it's like giving them emotional oxygen." Partnering with a Life Coach on your journey can be a clarifying and enlightening experience.

Countless people go through their lives without

direction, trying their best to make it in the business

world, be an acceptable member of their family,

neighborhood, and society. Some do this well, others,

not so much. Many of today‚Äôs women, beginning as

children, are driven by society and their families to

care for the needs of others to the point of neglecting

and sidetracking their own purpose in life. A person

can spend years searching through self-help literature,

websites, and visiting counselors without ever truly understanding their purpose in life.

                                                              A Life Coach is different from a counselor and a               

                                                              mental health practitioner. From the start, this kind of

                                                                coach takes a partnership role in a quest to find and

                                                              confirm the unique life purpose of Christians who want

                                                                God to be their priority. Most people are very good at

                                                                self-sabotaging life dreams. This is partly because of the

                                                                inability to recognize how important these dreams really

                                                                are. Also a lack of discipline challenges freedom from

self-destructive or self-limiting patterns. Doubt, lack of courage, and difficult life experiences draw many them into habitual patterns of desperation and hopelessness.
