I decided to provide Christian life coaching services to those of you who are middle age and beyond, because there are so many life transitions, challenges, and opportunities.
Why I'm a Christian Life Coach
About 10 years ago, I was sitting in my lounge chair recovering from a bad cold. My mind was wondering. I was looking out the window thinking about how Margaret and I talked about volunteering in some way to help people when we retired.
I then had my eyes closed, looking through the window of my imagination to what I thought my future would be.
Then it happened. It wasn't as dramatic as God speaking to Moses or any of the Old Testament prophets, but it certainly caught my attention.
A question broke into my train of thought. "Why are you waiting to help my hurting people?"
Shortly thereafter, I began volunteering at a church health ministry, and delivering for Meals on Wheels. A few years later, I volunteered to visit hospice patients.
The Lord wasn't finished with me. He wanted more. So I began acquiring the knowledge and credentials to begin helping his "hurting people" as a professional.
Today, I work as a Volunteer Coordinator and Spiritual Care Bereavement Coordinator for hospice at a major health care system, and continue to volunteer as I build my Christian life coaching practice. I am truly blessed.
