Be Uniquely You

What if you could see every micro experience you’ve ever had across the span of your lifetime? What if you recall every opportunity you have ever had to touch someone’s life; to cultivate change through transformational strategies; or to make decisions that bring your joy, significance and fulfillment?

Leading up to my 63rd birthday, God dropped a special message onto my spirit. I’ve never been one to stress over age. It’s has always been about winding up rather than down; being better tomorrow than yesterday; or growing wiser as time progresses. The message helped me look at age from a yet another perspective.

The message resonated with me and I decided to share it with you. Consider this: What if you could create an experience map chronicling a lifetime? Imagine how different your map would be from mine or anyone else’s. This message forms the basis of the theme for my life in 2020, “Be Uniquely You”. You were created to be significant, one-of-a-kind, not a duplicate of anyone else. Consider the number two billion as it relates to your unique life experiences.

Like Having Coffee with a Friend

Imagine you have scheduled a 30 minute complimentary coaching session with me. In that initial meeting, I have two intended outcomes in mind. First, develop an understanding of what you hope to gain from coaching. Second, nurture the relationship in a way that makes coaching feel like having coffee with a friend.

But not like having coffee with phone in hand, with no conversation, or faces buried in laptops. Rather, we engage in meaningful conversation. You enjoy coaching sessions as you become comfortable with my coaching style. I work diligently to ask just the right questions to help you discover the person you aspire to be by examining the person that you are.

ICF (International Coach Federation) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential”. Asking the right questions is a primary rule of engagement when it comes to fulfilling this requirement. Questions probe for insight into your mindset; your attitude towards accountability and responsibility; daily growth and personal development; and your bend towards survival, success or significance. It’s all designed to reflect the principle that says you must know yourself to grow yourself.

As you can see, the relationship between the coach and client is one of discovery. Conversations sets the stage for moving through the appreciative coaching roadmap in four distinct phases. The result: you meet your coaching goal.

  • Discovery – reflecting and celebrating
  • Dream – articulating potential
  • Design – directing attention and action
  • Destiny – being and becoming

Free to Focus


Become Free to Focus: Lack of talent or anointing is not the reason many believers are unsuccessful in their calling. The real culprit is a lack of focus. Without focus, success is slow at best and nowhere to be found at worst. Using the Word of God and Holy Spirit as our guide, this gathering is designed to help you clarify your calling and remove spiritual roadblocks that are cluttering up your path. There is freedom in focus. Our ultimate desire with our time together is to assist you in becoming free to focus on exactly what God has called you to do, so you can have an effective, stress free and prosperous 2020.

“Gather with us live to ignite your faith for success.” — Pastor Amos Johnson, Church for Entrepreneurs

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. – Matthew 18:19-20 KVJ

Creativity & Leadership

Life Coaching Application

In my coaching system, creativity shows up as help my clients to proactively cultivate change. I help clients become who they aspire to be by examining who they are. When clients are guided through discovering who they are on a deeply inner personal level, often what emerges is their own creativity to step out and redesign thoughts, feelings and beliefs. As a result, they begin moving forward to living their best life. As a coach I help clients become leaders through creativity in their own lives!

Hurdles to Triumph


“The triumph can’t be had without the struggle.”
—Wilma Rudolph

Moving through life and jumping hurdles is a part of everyone’s journey. And mine is no exception. The biggest lesson that I have learned along the way is that my own inner beliefs and self talk have more impact and influence on me than those filtering in from the outside. Pastor Brian Edmond, Senior Pastor of Macedonia Pittsburgh, my home church, spoke recently about living from the inside out. What resides on the inside should influence what is manifested on the outside, not the other way around. Very powerful indeed, especially when you have triumphed over the negative self talk that resides in your head, most of which —believe it or not— is rooted in past experiences.

One of my goals as a life coach is to help people move through hurdles right into triumph and victory. Watch the video to learn more…

Stepping Into a God-Inspired Vision

Going out on a limb back in 2013, I set a whole new path for my life. I walked away from a longstanding career and ventured down the proverbial road less traveled, kind of like Hansel and Gretel as they ventured into the unknown depths of the forest. I found myself in a place that was scary, unpredictable, and full of unexpected roadblocks. However, I was determined to keep my focus on purposeful living, so I set some very specific goals with the intention of living life on my own terms.
