I am a Christian Life Coach. I frequently am asked
what this means.
In the first place it means I am both a Christian
and a Life Coach. When someone comes to me with a problem of living, as a
Christian Life Coach I am committed to being a loving and accepting human being
who always works for the very best interests of those I counsel. As a Christian
I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I have accepted him into my life as my
personal Lord and Savior. I am a sinner saved by God’s grace. Jesus is also my
inspiration and my guide. In his life and ministry Jesus taught about and lived
a life of radical compassion especially in relation to those in need. That is
how I hope to live as well.
In the second place, most personal and relationship
problems are also spiritual problems calling for spiritual guidance using
spiritual resources. As a Life Coach, I provide guidance through the confusion
and uncertainties that make problem solving difficult. I do not impose
solutions but help those who come to me to rediscover their own wisdom about
life. As a Christian life Coach I challenge my clients to draw upon the resources
of faith consistent with their own religious heritage, understandings, and
commitments. As I do so I often share what my own faith has meant to me as I have
journeyed through my own life challenges.
Many persons who come to me for Life Coaching do so
because they are also Christians who seek guidance consistent with Christian
living and discipleship. It is my sincere intent and prayer that my counsel always
will be faithful and true in this sense, because I believe God loves each of us
and desires what is best for us, and has revealed his intentions for us in the
As a Christian Life Coach I neither pass judgment
on others, nor impose my personal beliefs on anyone, but I do pray for those I
counsel and seek to draw upon the wisdom of Scripture and the teachings of Jesus
and historical Christianity to help people find their way through life’s difficulties
and to become the persons they were created to be.
I am currently a member of the American Association
of Christian Counselors and also a member of the Association of Christian Therapists.
