I'm so glad to get the chance to share my heart with you! Let me
start by telling you why I'm so passionate about helping young
women reach their potential!
I first went to college to get a degree in music education, but
quickly found that I didn’t enjoy education courses. I switched to
worship and graduated several years later with a Bachelors in
Music and Worship Studies with a Specialization in Women’s
Ministry. During my time in college, I attempted to commit
suicide, and struggled to work through my mental health issues
while keeping healthy relationships with my friends. I was
incredibly unsociable, and had a lot of breakdowns.
After graduating, I got married and worked in my church’s
daycare. I had already had one emotional breakdown that forced
me to quit a job, and over the next few years I had two more. The
last came in April 2019. I was working as a toddler teacher at a wonderful daycare, but one day as I was driving home from the gym, I broke down crying. I felt so emotionally imbalanced and even suicidal. I took two days off of work and when I returned, I made it four hours into the day before having a massive panic attack. My counselor told me if I didn’t quit my job, in could end up I the hospital or worse. He strongly encouraged me to leave my job immediately, and that’s exactly what I did.
At this point I had been through several jobs; some related to my degree and some not. I had even gone back to school in 2017 and gotten my Masters in Pastoral Counseling before discovering I couldn’t obtain a counseling license with that degree in my state.
Meanwhile, being home without a job made me bored and lazy. I messed with the idea of streaming videogames, blogging again (something I had attempted previously), and finally I discovered life-coaching. I originally avoided life-coaching because I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it, but after more research I realized life-coaching was all of the things I loved about counseling and none of the things I didn’t. Unlike counseling, life-coaching is focused on creating an entirely new future, something that I had always wanted for myself but never felt like I could achieve. I realized that I could create a new future for myself by becoming a life-coach, and in the process I would help other young women create the futures they were desiring as well. God had already prepared me by teaching me so much in the past about blogging, writing, and counseling others. Life-coaching was (and is) the epitome of everything I had been learning.
My passion is helping young women live a better life, whether that means coaching them into a new job, or using my blog to teach them how to take better care of themselves. It breaks my heart to see so many young women, whether single, married, mother of three or childless, not living their life to the fullest because they believe mediocrity and monotony are what God has planned for their life. If that's you, take a look at the Proverbs 31 woman. Her life is anything but mediocre and monotonous!
In every season of our lives, God gives use the opportunity to thrive in a new and exciting way. So what has God given you in this season of life? Feeling uncertain about how to use where you're at to thrive, pursue your heart's desires, and glorify God? Stick around, and let me help you walk through this season, whatever it may be. The God-given desire of my heart is to hold your hand and help you walk from uncertainty into the glorious future He has planned for you. I know He has more in store for you than you could possibly imagine.
