On Being a Message Bearer {for my writing, speaking, ministry leading friends}

Message Bearer Manifesto for Writers, Speakers, and Ministry Leaders

Wouldn’t you agree that being a message bearer is no easy thing? It’s a responsibility and calling. It’s a burden and privilege. It is full of blessing and too many trials. But have you considered how it’s been this way since the very beginning? Oh yes, since the days when Jesus’ followers first step forth to bring the Good News forth to listening ears and longing hearts, being a message bearer meant saying yes to rejections and trials and uncertain futures. All we have to do is look deeper into Paul’s letters to find the tension points. I suppose we can […]

Not Every Platform is the Right One

Not every platform is the right one.

I had the most powerful revelation while coaching a client struggling with focus. Like me, she’s a “multi-hat” wearer and frustrated by not being able to devote equal time to each area of her life. She wants to know God’s plan for where she is to devote her time and not be frustrated by what gets put off. I get this at a deep, deep level. It is my struggle too and something I’ve been asking God to give me clarity and understanding. As she was talking, God brought to mind the train tracks that run into the Philly station. […]

Find Your Why and Find Your Purpose

Find Your Why and Find Your Purpose

It’s quite ironic that as life coach, I’m proposing that you and I both need to find out our why. See, in coaching, we consider the “why” question taboo, because it has the potential of putting a person on the defensive. Think about that for a moment. Can you recall a time when you were in the middle of a task and a family member or co-worker showed up on the scene and said, “Why are you doing that?” How did you feel? Where you annoyed? Irritated? Felt judged? If so, you’re pretty normal. If not, you should praise God […]

The Red Thread Club: When Anger is a Part of Your Story

When Anger is the Red Thread in Your Story

  No one ever wants to admit that they have the red thread of anger running through their story. It’s a confession that comes with a crimson shade of embarrassment, guilt, confusion, and frustration. That red thread is like the one embedded on a package, designed to release the contents with one pull — except for those of us battling anger, we pray that thread won’t ever be snagged. If only we could prevent the external pressures and triggers, whether it’s a spilled glass of milk, an interruption in the schedule, or a combative loved one. We can’t control the […]

Simplifying the Steps of Change

4 Key Steps Toward Real Life Change

Do you know what the secret is to experiencing real life change? Oh, yes, there’s a secret. It’s not a magic pill. It’s not some big expensive program or eCourse you need to invest into. Nor is it something that you should hire someone to accomplish for you, although that would be ideal. It’s not even something that you can demand of God, although submitting to Him will make the process a whole lot easier. The secret to real life change begins with the “ah-ha.” What’s an “ah-ha”?   As I learned through my life coaching training, and have come to see in […]

How to Pinpoint Your Passion & Purpose

God may cultivate a passion trough a life experience and turn it into a life purpose.

Have you engaged in an activity or embraced a responsibility that you didn’t want to end, even after you expended all your physical energy? Is there a cause or a need that you feel all fired up about? Do you find yourself happily volunteering your time, without counting the cost, even if you don’t get one bit of recognition or financial gain for your sacrifice? Maybe you’ve had the opposite experience, like being stuck with a job or in a social situation that drained the life out of you. Or maybe you’ve felt frustrated, overwhelmed, or unprepared for a particular […]
