Welcome to my online space, I am so happy you are here! I want to start my first blog post by introducing myself so that you can get to know me a little bit.
First of all, since 2008 I have had a dream to start a blog and I never took the leap and did it because of so many fears. Ugh, can you relate? How many times do we not do something that we dream of because we are afraid of many things that are oftentimes totally unfounded. More about that in upcoming blog posts.
I am wife to Levi and mom to three young men Austin, Lucas and Ethan. I have been a business owner for over 17 years. I am entrepreneurial at heart and love all things business related. I have a high value for freedom, and owning my own businesses gives me the freedom that I love!
One of my dreams for many years has been to become a certified life coach, and again because of so many fears I never took any steps toward that dream. I just finished my training and received my certification as a Christian life coach! It has been so incredible to accomplish the thing I have dreamed of for so long! Now off to building the business of life coaching.
I get to live on a farm in Iowa which is absolutely incredible. Yes, there are gravel roads, and pig smells but nothing beats the beauty of country living. The sunsets and sunrises are amazing and the peace and quiet make me so happy.
I am an INTJ, an enneagram 1, and my kolbe score is 4-7-4-4. Basically what all this means is that I like to geek out on figuring out what my strengths and weaknesses are, I am an introvert that likes things organized, I have perfectionist tendencies and I love to be able to see the big picture and break it down into small pieces and come up with a plan so it can be executed.
What lights me up is seeing people walk out in who God created them to be and helping them to find freedom from anything that holds them back. I led an inner healing ministry at our church for 6+ years and I got to witness some pretty incredible miracles! This has fueled my passion to see women walk in freedom in their everyday lives by overcoming the barriers that are holding them back from living their best lives.
