“To be used by God, you must know who you are and who He is.”

COACHING CAN HELP YOU KNOW GOD AND KNOW YOURSELF BETTER
Most positive difference makers are Christian leaders who are invested in growing more like Christ. The best way to do that shares the same principals as a railroad track. The two parallel rails are spaced equally apart; one rail represents knowing God, and the other, knowing ourselves. The horizontal ties that keep the tracks aligned and connected is the Holy Spirit. It’s gravely important for a train to lock into both steel rails in order to move forward, and if ties are missing, it adversely affects the stability and smoothness of the ride. Unison is what makes it work well.
In my experience most difference makers know more about God than they do themselves. Our churches, Bible studies and spiritual disciplines are wonderful ways to know Him, along with experiencing His love and grace. Christian coaching is another way to know God better because He enters into the process and usually shows off in the most wonderful, life-giving ways!
It can, however, be much more of a challenge to know yourself. So, I’ve provided some free resources that can help you learn more about yourself.
Coaching integrates information from many self-assessments. Instead of your results remaining fragmented data, you can enroll in my online self- study course called CONNECT THE DOTS, which brings them all together to create your own personal mission statement. You will learn what you do well, who your heart is inclined to serve, what your passion and motivation is, as well as the ways you can stay filled and fulfilled as you live out your mission. In just 5 thoughtful steps you can discover your purpose and God-given calling!
If you’re interested in creating a complete picture of yourself, contact me for a DISCOVERY SESSION and learn how coaching can help!
- A Discovery session is a complimentary 30 minute call that introduces us to each other. It allows us to ask and answer questions and have a great discussion about what coaching is, what coaching isn’t and the expectations that go along with the coaching partnership. There is no obligation to continue with coaching, so this is a great way to casually explore the possibility!
“Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.”
–Proverbs 3:13-15 (NIV)
