CURIOUS FAITH

ABOUT ME

I believe in Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior.

I believe that a sweaty yoga class can change the worst of moods in under 30 minutes flat. Always go.

I was raised in Colorado, lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 10 years, and just moved to Dallas, Texas for my greatest adventure yet.  

 

I love good red wine, and recently learned how to actually taste it.

I will be a published author very soon. The book is titled Mom as of July, and was written by my sister and I. It's about our Moms journey through addiction, homelessness, faith, and love. The experience taught me that God hears silent prayers.

My favorite place on earth is Des, Moines Iowa.  I was born there. It's green grass, grandmas apple pie, and the farm. 

I believe in setting goals for the physical body often. They build spiritual stamina.

The most inspiring book I've ever read, or ever will read, is The Bible.

 

I believe in setting visions for your life. Whether they are one month out or 10 years out, my favorite thing in the whole world is seeing God deliver something greater than what was originally written.

I believe in you.

FAITH BASED COACHING

THERE IS NOTHING MORE THRILLING, NO GREATER ADVENTURE, THAN TO SPRINT AFTER THE LIFE YOU WERE CREATED FOR.

He made you and me to live extraordinary lives.  When we partner with God, He provides a navigation system for change, goal setting, and achievement. He provides power, vision, courage, ease, and direction. We will talk about the areas of your life you want to improve, the vision in your heart, the obstacles ahead, and we will pull them all together into a purposeful, straight line.

 

Through coaching, you will answer the difficult questions that will reveal the next steps to take, and your real time, courageous actions will be the catalyst for breakthrough.  As you move, God moves, and we will gush over the awe-inspiring work He does in your life as He shapes you into all He created you to be, do and have.  We will chase after all of it.  The blessings, the challenges, the abundance, the ideas, the failures, the fears, and most importantly...the impossible. God will guide us.

 

"Now to God who can do so many awe-inspiring things, immeasurable things, things greater than we could ever ask or imagine through His power at work within us."  Ephesians 3:20

I didn't grow up in a "active" Christian home, I judged what I didn't know.  I knew and believed in a God, but that was about all I knew.  I understand what it's like to be curious about God, yet not feel fully comfortable navigating your faith.  If this is you, I would love to connect with you and share my coaching approach.  I work with a variety of clients, from different backgrounds, that are in different places spiritually. My job as your coach is to listen, teach, offer and guide as you explore the silent whispers nudging you towards your greatest potential.

MY STORY

I wasn't raised in a Christian home.

God found me through a a self development book,

 and this is the story.

I started working for a fitness apparel company back in 2013.  I was immediately attracted to, border line obssessed, with the culture of “goal setting”. Each employee would get a packet and a goal coaching session upon being hired. The packet would dig through questions asking things like “what would you do if you could not fail?”, or “if money were no object, what would you do for work?”, and my favorite part, write a 10 year vision for your life. Describe everything. The people who are with you in 10 years,  the work you do, where you live, how you vacation, do you volunteer, what you do for fun. You would be instructed to be limitless in this vision, write from the heart,write in full description down to the smells, be in full possibility for your life. I could not get enough.

 

I managed a store when I started. This meant I got to lead this goal setting work for my entire team, anywhere between 20 and 40 people. I would lead “workshops” (as I would call them), in staff meetings or leadership meetings, which were basically my own spin on the packet they gave me when I was hired. I would talk to people on the sales floor about their vision, their goals, I would ask them the list of questions to get them thinking about a life lived to it’s fullest potential. I would have to break myself away from these conversations to help guests. I just could not get enough of hearing about different peoples dreams, interests, fears, desires, road blocks. I would ask a million questions, and my energy for the topic never let up.

 

Over the years and outside of work, I began to research the topic in my spare time. The books on my nightstand were titles like The Secret, Magic, Setting 1,5,7 Year Goals, Unleashing the Giant Within by Tony Robbins.  And then I eventually started to take the topic deeper, picking up books on manifestation by Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer. I began to thirst for meaning and purpose and a connection to something greater than myself to set and achieve these goals. I lit my life on fire with my new found passion, and new community of like minded goal setters around me. I ran a half marathon, I traveled to new countries, I got promotions at work. Whatever I set my mind to, that truly had a rooted connection deep down in my heart, just always seemed to manifest at some point through my dedication to the process.  In a casual conversation with a co-worker one day, I shared how I was craving more of a spiritual “routine” in my life. Beyond books in the morning and before bed and at work. I needed something that felt regular, like Sunday hikes to spend time with the universe. That kind of thing. It was then that she offered me her own routine that shifted the course of my life. She said, “my partner and I watch Oprah Super Soul Sunday every morning at 9am, we love it, it’s totally our routine. We look forward to coffee and the different topics. Maybe you can do that!”.  I loved the idea. I loved Oprah, self development, mornings and coffee. YES. 

 

After a few weeks into my new routine, one special Sunday morning, Oprah was interviewing a Pastor named Wintley Phipps. He was talking about his newest book, Your Best Destiny: Becoming the Person you Were Created to Be . I didn’t know a thing about Christianity , so how he referenced God and Jesus in this interview just flew right over my head. The rest of what he was saying I related to. I loved the title, I loved the word destiny, I bought the book.  When it arrived 3 days later, express shipping, I dove in. The first page revealed that this was a Christian Book. “Oh well”, I thought. I like the topic and the chapter headers, I’ll just keep reading.

 

By the time I finished this book, I knew something had changed. I had to know more. I asked my only co-worker, and dear friend, who I knew went to Church, if I could join her. When we walked in that Sunday, I was impressed by the free coffee, casually dressed people, cool band, and relatable message topic. As the music began, tears started flooding. Embarrassed,  I looked at her and said, "gosh I’m so sorry I don’t know why I’m crying…” She looked back at me and said,

“Girl, that’s the Holy Spirit”.

And the rest is history.
