They said, long distance relationships don't work.
But we did nearly 4 years long distance...I was in college and he was in the Navy.
They also said, young marriages don't last and we were too young to marry.
But we've been married for 11 yrs going on 12 and are happily married. Like we really love being together and find joy in the simple things about one another...like grabbing towels for one another or making one another's plates for dinner. Its the simple stuff.
They say a lot of things.
But I'd like to remind you to listen to what God says.
What does God say about you? What does God say about your marriage?
That's all that really matters.
I believe God desires for us to honor who He has created us to be and to honor our marriages.
Marriages matter. They matter so deeply that they impact nearly every aspect of our culture.
Yet, marriage are failing faster than they're starting and that hurts my heart.
I believe in love, real love...the kind that's hot and sweaty, the kind that stretches you beyond limits, the kind that brings you to your knees in prayer.
Love is what heals, builds and nurtures marriages.
The journey to becoming a relationship coach
I started my business in November of 2014, focusing primarily on supporting women in building businesses. I helped my clients earn great success and really enjoyed supporting them in reaching their goals. As I worked with my clients, I naturally and intentionally supported them in personal development as that directly impacts their business.
Additionally, in our sessions on personal development, naturally the relationship with their spouses were explored during our sessions. I began to realize how little support women have in building strong marriages while building a business.
We worked through some of the issues and challenges and made great progress.
Essentially, building relationships has always been at the forefront of my business, but things began to shift over the summer of 2016.
So as I spent more time in prayer and after working with a coach, I realized that my way of supporting women was shifting more to helping women in their relationships (with God, self and others, especially the marriage)
How do I know what I'm talking about
My husband and I have been married for 11 years...going on 12. We believe in loving one another through the hard seasons, the kind that bring you to your knees in prayer.
Having a healthy marriage is so important and the fact that so many are quietly suffering in their marriages breaks my heart.
I've supported many married couples in restoring their marriages. And I believe my combined experience of being a wife for nearly 12 years, supporting others in building, healing and nurturing relationships and my education, gives me the right mix of skills and experience to continue to serve more intently in this area.
