Women's Ministry Leader,
“Before coaching, a feeling of emptiness and a lack of clear direction, focus or purpose, combined with fear and anxiety about the future, was impacting and affecting every aspect of my life. I felt a constant inner turmoil I could not name. Thoughts such as, ‘There’s more to life than this. I wonder what God’s purpose is for me? Why aren’t things I think should be satisfying not more satisfying?’ plagued my mind.
There was a combination of factors that had me finally say, “Enough is enough” and decide to work with Jen. I realized I had to make a choice to take the chance, if I truly wanted things to change. So, I stepped out in faith. Through coaching what I realized was that freedom and joy were just on the other side of stepping out of my comfort zone. Coaching with Jen was one of the best decisions I have ever made!”

“Before I started coaching, I was dealing with constant stress, lack of motivation, explosive emotions, tension in relationships, very little peace and I was not sleeping well. I just felt stuck in life. What motivated me to consider coaching was hearing the wonderful transformation a friend experienced through the coaching process.
One of my favorite aspects of coaching is that I can comfortably share vulnerable feelings and experiences with Jen, and I know that she listens to me without judgment. I feel her heart to serve and that she has my growth and future in mind at all times.
Since coaching, I have experienced a mindset shift that has positively affected my relationships, my perspective and my ability to live with intention instead of reaction. I feel increased energy and peace as well as more hopeful about my life and purpose!”

I originally sought out coaching to help me gain control over a situation I felt helpless to change on my own - my health and weight. I had allowed my health to decline during a period of extreme stress, and was tired of living in fear and with an un-healthy mindset. I knew I needed help, but with the busyness of daily living it took me a while to take action. I also struggled with worry and anxiety, which incapacitated me from doing things I enjoyed and from living out the gifts God has given me.
When I retired from a stressful job, I knew ‘enough was enough’. It was time to take action and that’s when I reached out to Jen. I wanted clarity to help me re-group and make good use of my time and I also wanted assistance with weight loss and my health.
I enjoyed the weekly sessions, which felt like I was meeting with a good friend. “Good” as in one who wasn't afraid to tell me the truth in love. “Friend” as I felt like Jen was for me from the beginning. I felt validated, yet challenged. I gained a new understanding into how I functioned as a person, and was encouraged to apply that information to grow.
As a result of coaching, I am making choices in my thinking, which results in actions in to LIVE my life, not just exist. I am expanding my comfort zone. Instead of allowing the fear of “what if?” and anxiety control me, I am going forward even when I feel hesitant. I have committed to getting healthy and have successfully stuck to my health goals (which Jen helped me develop). I am making healthy choices with food, exercise, and self-talk. I have taken control of my health. Not only have I consistently lost weight over the past 6 months, I've dropped a size in clothes and feel my movement increase!
I think coaching gives you the tools to live your life instead of settling for mere existence. It helps to reveal roadblocks and provides the tools to overcome those hindrances. It has a positive effect on your outlook on life and gives you power to choose behaviors which lead to a greater fulfillment. Life coaching is an investment in yourself that I absolutely recommend!

“When I started coaching, I was grieving the loss of my husband and found myself suddenly thrust into a leadership role of an established and growing ministry As a result, this consumed enormous amounts of my time and energy, and I lacked the confidence and faith to move forward in my walk with God and in a leadership capacity.
What motivated me to say, ‘Enough is enough’ and decide to coach with Jen was the realization that I was ‘stuck in the muck’ and struggling with the shock of all the sudden changes and responsibilities. I needed guidance, accountability and encouragement
As a result of the holistic approach of the coaching process I have more confidence, greater self-acceptance, increased faith, a more meaningful relationship with God, more compassion for others, better quality of sleep as well as weight loss! When I look back to where I began this journey six months ago, I am amazed and excited by the progress and the transformation that has taken place!”

“Before coaching, a constant frustration from a lack of purpose, clear direction and sense of accomplishment, combined with a deep fear of interacting with others, was negatively impacting my life. I often felt as though I could not measure up in whatever I undertook.
Losing family over the last year is what motivated me say, “Enough is enough” and decide to coach with Jen and make whatever changes were necessary to live fully for the rest of my life. I am now better able to accept myself and make full use of what I have, rather being anxious over what I don’t have. It is easier to wind down and sleep at night. I also have more interest in exploring options for my life and future.”
The reason WHY I chose Bridget as a coach was her preliminary session. This gave me a chance to talk with her in a relaxed way and understand HOW she would "coach" me, listening to my concerns and lining the answers up with God's Word. This is exactly what I was looking for!
Next, at the beginning she asked me to let her know what topics I wanted to discuss and made it realistic like 5 tops to begin. Then, at the start of each session, we talked about the topic for that time and at the end she asked me if I had any new insights on how to think on that topic. Every time, I was elevated in my thinking! God's truth does that. I especially like that she would send me a summary of the session the next day or so. This way, I could review it and apply.
I then was able to develop fresh thoughts on my attitude and point of view regarding my stumbling blocks, especially with my adult children and my husband. Bridget showed me how to be realistic about change. How the only one I can change is myself, and how being fearful of others or an imagined outcome put me in fear. We also developed a plan for "getting out of the pits of life" with a practical practice. I'll leave that answer for you to discover with her!
Bridget, because you have been faithful to your calling I am in a better place with Jesus than ever before.
"I am grateful I met Bridget and had the opportunity to work with her for a few months. It was an awesome experience and happened just at the right time for me.
I was feeling a bit stuck and sometimes when you're "stuck in a box" you don't realize what's written on the outside of the box. Bridget was able to listen and help me realize a bunch of things just outside my own "box' thinking.
It was very refreshing to not only have someone else listening to my thoughts but also challenging my wording, actions and motives for what I needed to do to make healthy choices. I appreciated that Bridget (and her coaching method) is rooted and grounded in Christ. She prayed for me and guided me in right ways rather than just how the world thinks things should go. Thank you!"
"In one word, working with Bridget is anointed. She is a prayerful and grounded coach with a gift for listening to both her client and the Holy Spirit. Bridget asks just the right questions! In only a few sessions, I gained clarity on how God is leading me in my business. She helped me discern my vision and write my mission statement. I could not have gotten here without her!"
