What Are You Thinking About?

psalm11824.jpg

What have you been thinking about today?

Have you thought about what a kind genuine person you are?

Or how much you continue to influence others with your insightful words of encouragement?

Are you thinking about the ways you have impacted countless souls you’ve encountered over a lifetime?

Or maybe you just might be thinking how proud you are of yourself for pushing through and not giving up on that last goal?

I want to remind you today that you are what you think about. Thinking these types of positive thoughts have never come natural to me. And it wasn’t until I began meditating on God’s word day and night (Joshua 1:8) that it slowly started to transform my mind.

I tell my 13 year-old daughter all the time, what goes in must come out.

What is going into your mind? What are you reading and who are listening to? What thoughts do you continuously mull over in your mind?

We recently finished up a sermon series at my church “Your Verse” and we learned about how just one simple verse has the potential to change your life. I encourage you to search for that one simple truth in the bible and make it “Your Verse” to lean on throughout your day.

My favorite verse I speak in the mornings {especially when I’m having a hard time} is Psalm 118:24 “This the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

I want to challenge you to start choosing what you think about. Leave a comment below and let me know what you are thinking about today :)

Experience Coaching Here

bobolink

Hello Beautiful Friends!

I hope your summer is going super fantastic so far and you are able to enjoy some vacation time with your loved ones.

Many times I get asked questions about my coaching business and what exactly I offer, so today I thought I’d share a little bit with you here. Maybe this is something you might be interested in or possibly it would be a great resource for your friends and family. I love referrals from my awesome readers, so please share. Here’s a little taste of the coaching experience below.

Everyone needs a Coach!

Why?

To get us out of our comfort zone, take action and follow through on our passions that are buried deep within us. A Coach will challenge and hold you accountable to be the best person you can possible be.

Often, without a coach we end up living humdrum stagnate lives just going through the motions day in and day out.

We have all asked ourselves “Why am I here? Is this all there is to life?” But most of the time we just settle back into our routine and never really push ourselves to find out why we are here and how to begin living fully alive.

I will coach you to discover God’s purpose for your life, immediately start living and loving COURAGEOUSLY while learning how to push through resistance. This my friend is called Living the Wholehearted Life.

If you are ready to move forward, I want to coach you!

The focus of our sessions will be centered around:

1. Where am I now?

2. Where am I going?

3. How will I get there?

4. What might get in the way?

Side note, this is not easy work, but I promise the reward is worth it! Here’s what one client had to say…

“When I started working with Linda, I couldn’t really define my goals for coaching. I knew I was feeling overwhelmed and a bit scattered. One of the first things I did was take spiritual gifts assessment. This was my first step in getting some real focus. I realized that I was committed to a number of things that were not bringing me joy, but instead were draining my energy. Over several weeks I gained clarity about my talents and priorities, and was able to regain a sense of serenity, which is priceless!” Cassie C., NJ

Clients who are successful working with me tend to have these qualities:

1. Motivation

2. Desire

3. Commitment

4. Fear (It’s normal to feel afraid when starting something new!)

If you have these four qualities, you are ready to embrace a more passionate wholehearted YOU by beginning the coaching process.

What does each session include? Every woman is different and moving through a unique season of life. Therefore each session is uniquely created to meet her needs.

A typical Coaching Session will include 10 Significant Steps to guide you towards living a passionate wholehearted life:

1.   Begin with prayer ~ I will lead us in prayer by inviting God into each session and asking for His guidance.

2.   Discuss Client Prep Form ~ We will review where you are, and where you want to be in order to achieve your goals.

3.   Client/Coach dialog ~ This is where the rubber meets the road. We will dig deep to bring self-awareness and focus on what it means for you to live wholeheartedly.

4.   Coaching questions ~ As your coach, I will ask you the tough questions that many people around you may be afraid to ask.

5.   Brainstorming ~ Ideas are not just born from your coach. We will discuss together what it means for you to be successful in this program.

6.   Consider possible obstacles ~ Roadblocks, you will have them, they do exist, and there can be a lot of them. I will teach you the tools to remove them and move forward. Often clients use these tools in other areas of their life.

7.   Create an action plan ~ We will agree upon an action plan.

8.   Discuss accountability plan ~ Accountability is the heart of the Coach/Client relationship.

9.   Explore possible assignments between sessions ~ Homework. Depending on your unique situation there may be some assignments that will be done between our sessions.

10. End with prayer ~ As we complete our session, we will praise God. (I do not ask my clients to pray out loud unless they prefer.)

The Secret to Miracles

miraclesbloom.jpg

Last week I wrote about living this summer with intention, and so far so good.

I love living with intention!! It’s making a big difference. I hope it is for you too.

I’ve already had some time in the sun with my daughter laughing and playing in the pool and we actually pulled out an old game a few nights ago after dinner. It was amazing to see the difference in our mood that evening. We all seemed a little lighter.

We have been laughing a lot more lately too!

I would like to give all the credit to “being intentional” however that’s not where the credit is due.

A few weeks ago, I started praying for my family. Not some long eloquent profound prayers, just sincere prayers from my heart.

And guess what?

The more I pray, the more I see God answering.

We’ve all heard it time and time again that there is power in prayer, but do we really live our daily lives believing the REAL POWER in prayer?

I really believe with every ounce of me that prayer is the fertile soil where miracles bloom.

This week I want to challenge you to step up your prayer life. What is your heart longing for? What needs to change in your life or in a loved ones life that only God can do?

Seek the Lord with all your heart and expect to see miracles today. That’s why Jesus came, so that we may have life and enjoy it to the fullest.

“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you!” Luke 17:6 NIV

Pray in faith today sweet Sisters. He is waiting for you.

I love hearing from you. Leave a comment below.

A Summer of Intention

meg&grammy.jpg

What are your plans for the summer?

Will you be traveling, hanging out at the pool, relaxing or playing games with the family?

I’m hoping to do all of these!

However, many times my summer ends up being a little too thoughtless and then I look back with a touch of regret.

Because my daughter is turning 14 this year, I want to make the most out of the time I have with her.

Thinking back to when I was diagnosed with cancer 5 years ago, I spent practically the whole summer curled up in bed sick and crying buckets of tears because I could not share the joy and excitement of a blistering hot summer day with my daughter.

So this summer in honor of another day of life, health and God’s grace, I plan to live each day with intention. I will approach each 24-hours as if it were my last and savor every hot sticky sweaty humid beautiful day with my family.

Life is short. Choose to make it count! 

So what are you plans for the summer? Will you join me in living each day with intention? Leave me a comment below.

How To Stop Procrastinating

clock.jpg

Do you ever feel guilty for repeating the same bad habits?

Have you ever said, I’m never doing that again, but find yourself doing it anyway?

Are you sick and tired of making promises you cannot keep? {especially to yourself}

Yes, yes and yes!

Sometimes I get so frustrated because I keep making the same stupid mistakes over and over.

“I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.” Romans 7:15 NLT

Can you relate?

Just last weekend I found myself being that nagging mom that I so desperately do not want to be! Somehow it just slipped right out of me. My daughter is almost 14 years old and well; you get the picture, enough said.

I really don’t want to keep using the excuse of “raging hormones” for me to lose my temper with my daughter and miss divine opportunities to instill meaningful values in her life.

So while I took some time to cool off after another “blow up” I reflected on how I’ve successfully implemented changes in the past and I was quite surprised with what came to mind!

Stop procrastinating and DECIDE to make a change now.

Yep, it’s really that simple!

Any time we make up our mind and DECIDE to make a change we will have success. It might not always turn out exactly how we planned, but we will begin to move forward and transformation will happen. I promise you!

For example, four years ago when I ran my very first half marathon it came down to making a decision or when I felt God calling me to a 40-day juice fast I made the decision to make the commitment.

So what do you need to decide on today?

How will making this decision impact your life one month, six months or even one year from now?

Leave a comment with your decision below. It’s time to make a change now.

A Prayer for Fleshly

hide.jpg

Its time for me to introduce someone I’m quit embarrassed about.

Her name is Fleshly, she is my flesh.

When I get offended, angry or hurt Fleshly might appear out of nowhere to do her thing.

She’s quite the sight to see!

Actually she’s very self-centered and leaves me feeling mortified every time she visits.

She might yell a few ungodly words ranting and raving in her self-righteousness or give you the silent treatment while scheming ways to prove she is right.

Either way, she’s someone I would NEVER EVER want you to see.

The only thing the world needs to see is a snapshot of my picture perfect life, not the real stuff that would disqualify me as a “Christian Life Coach”. Right?

So I thought I would share with you today that I’m not perfect. Of course none of us are perfect but sometimes we compare ourselves with what appears to be perfect.

In the middle of “Fleshly” acting out this week, I reached a breaking point. You know that point where there’s only one place left to go…your knees. While on my knees, this prayer formed in my heart.

If you struggle with a “Fleshly” in your life, I invite you to pray this with me.

If you need prayer, I would love to pray for you. Leave me a comment below.

I will have a few coaching appointments opening up the beginning of June. I want to encourage you that there is hope and a new way of life through Christian Life Coaching. ((hugs))

How To Connect With God

connection.jpg Have you ever struggled to connect intimately with God?

I know I have!

There have been seasons in my life where I questioned does God even exist?

Searching to find even an ounce of faith can leave you feeling empty, depressed, hopeless, and tad bit crazy.

The more I doubted God, the more condemned I felt. {Which was just the enemy’s tactic to shake my faith. Remember Romans 8:1; there is no condemnation in Christ!}

In my desperation to find God, I stumbled across a sermon from Andy Stanley at North Point Community Church online. Andy reminded me in his message how the disciples wrestled with doubts even while they were literally walking with Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God.

Can you imagine that?

With a big sigh of relief, I thanked God that what I’d been feeling all along was biblical, that even the disciples felt some of these same things.

Before I knew it, a glimmer of faith starting peaking through my soul once I learned that I was not alone in my doubts.

After many months of fighting for my faith, I immersed myself in the bible.

I began reading the Living Word of God out loud every morning.

I started talking to the Lord out loud, as if I was talking to one of my best friends.

While sharing with Him my daily highs and lows of life, my hopes and dreams for my family, and me I gradually began building an intimate relationship with God.

I wish I had time to tell you all of the hundreds of answered prayers and endless surprises He’s given me! It keeps me amazed and excited for what’s ahead each day.

He treats me like a princess.

It is priceless how connected and alive my spirit is to His.

This deep intimate connection with the Holy Spirit is why we are alive. The whole point to life is simply to worship the Lord with our entire being so that His glory will radiate through us.

I want to invite you to connect intimately with God today. I promise you, there is no greater love you will ever receive than His. As you watch this video, I pray that you experience His presence in a supernatural way.

I love hearing from you. Leave me a comment below!

Miss Cranky Pants

misscrankypants.jpg

As I sat on my porch listening to the birds chirping I was savoring God and His creation. I spent a good bit of time talking with Him, praying and reading the bible.

Leaving my quiet time I felt motivated.  A sense of peace lingered within knowing that God would order my steps for the day.

As I began working, everything seemed to be running smoothly. It appeared to be a typical work day.

And out of nowhere, the next thing you know, I became Miss Cranky Pants!

I started feeling grumpy, irritable and anxious for NO REASON at all!

Has this ever happened to you? (I hope so; otherwise you’re probably thinking I’m a little crazy!)

I couldn’t figure out what in the heck was wrong with me.

Was I hormonal? I don’t know.

Was I tired? Maybe.

Mad at my husband? A little.

But was that enough to warrant my day going from spirit filled to grumpy and down right dreadful?

As I shuffled around my office, I could tell I was getting crankier by the minute. My first thought was this is going to be a rotten day.  Which led to poor pitiful me, why does everything have to be a struggle, to….I’m actually too embarrassed to tell you everything I was thinking, but you get the point.

After about half an hour of this mental anguish, I stopped dead in my tracks.

Something deep inside of me stirred and immediately I made a U-turn in my day.

I made an intentional decision to go back to where I started my day, seeking God.

Quickly I grabbed my cell phone, put on a Joyce Meyer podcast and before I knew it, I was back on track! I was excited about my day and experiencing God’s peace once again.

Isn’t it strange how are moods and thoughts can fluctuate within minutes? How it only take one negative thought to derail us.

I open up my thought life in hopes that you will feel encouraged knowing that you are not alone in the Battlefield of the Mind. When you go from life is great to feeling miserable within minutes, it doesn’t mean you are crazy!

What it means is that the enemy will do anything to throw you off course. It is up to you how your day will go and what you will allow your mind to think on. 

What will you do the next time you find yourself becoming Miss Cranky Pants? Will you allow the enemy to stay in your mind or will you kick him out? I love hearing from you, leave a comment below.

I currently have a waiting list, however I will have appointments opening up in mid May. I want to encourage you that there is hope and a new way of life through Christian Life Coaching. ((hugs))

Next Tuesday I will be hanging out over at God-sized Dreams and giving away 2 Coaching Sessions. Be sure to check out this amazing blog community!
