Certified Christian Life Coach, Author, & Speaker
I used to hate myself as a mom.
For years, I hated how I yelled at my kids and what I said to them.
After having 3 kids in 28 months, life got busy. And messy. Really, really messy.
I was feeling overwhelmed and frustrated all the time, and those feelings would boil up and spill over onto my kids in ways that really hurt them.
But I just couldn’t seem to change myself.
I felt totally hopeless because it didn’t seem like anything was working – the parenting books, podcasts, and retreats. Praying more, trying harder, trying to change my thinking – none of it helped.
I still was an out of control emotional mom, and hating myself for it.
But thank God I didn’t stay that way. Over time, I learned to hear God’s voice and recognize the truth. I learned that my emotions weren’t bad, but good and created by God.
And most importantly, I learned how to recognize my emotions to allow God to heal my past and change my present.
I am far from perfect. Thankfully, I am also far from where I used to be.
Today, I treasure my life and family in Alaska, and my 27 years of marriage to my high school sweetheart. We have been blessed with 3 grown children, one in heaven, and a preschooler.
I love to learn, write, teach and coach.
