“Pride cannot live beneath the cross. Let us sit there and learn our lesson, and then rise and carry it into practice…
…Stand at the foot of the cross, and count the purpose drops by which you have been cleansed…And if you do not lie prostrate on the ground before that cross, you have never seen it: if you are not humbled in the presence of Jesus, you do not know Him.” Spurgeon
What is Cross-Life Coaching?
Growing up spiritually does not just ‘happen.’ The Apostle Paul said we must ‘work out what God has put in us.’ When I accepted Christ as Lord–as opposed to a ticket out of hell–I had trouble finding folks who could articulate the Way to do that. They told me ‘read the Bible,’ ‘do this’ and ‘do that.’ They were not wrong, but I needed more. Living the ‘Cross-Life’ involves changing habits and attitudes.
I would have loved a Cross-Life Coach to move me forward in my journey in those early days. And that is why I now offer Cross-Life Coaching to those who feel the same way.
I believe with all my heart that JESUS is the answer to every problem we face in life. I also know that many good Christians struggle to figure out HOW He is the answer.
We get stuck on our own; we need more than words and insights. We need another person to come along side us. Church fellowships, friends who share our faith beliefs and pastors are valuable resources. Sometimes, though, those resources do not extend to the depth desired.
It is my personal joy to walk alongside many in the capacity of sister-in-Christ. Coaching is more deliberate and intensive. It establishes goals and digs deeply into the heart to enlarge the capacity for Christ-likeness. Coaching involves ‘homework’ and ‘heartwork.’ It is a labor intensive prospect.
WHY would I use Cross-life Coaching?
Cross-life Coaching is all about achieving potential…about being all that God created you to be. It is for the person who wants more from life! It is for the person who sees what they do with life as their thank-you gift to God!
Cross-Life Coaching is designed for all who:
- feel ‘stuck’ in a certain behavior pattern or situation.
- believe there is more to living the Christian life than they currently enjoy.
- want to identify and remove barriers to abundant living.
- seek clarity on expectations, goals and life purpose.
- long to live with their eyes focused on eternal impact.
WHAT kind of things will come up?
Cross-Life Coaching is personal. The life of faith is lived out individually but abundant living involves some common areas:
- Knowing God More
- Developing as His Disciple
- Healing from Hurts
- Giving God Glory by Sharing Your Hope
