Coaching Topics

Leadership, time management, ministry balance, and more.


I have spent the last decade and more coaching children’s leaders and others on leadership, time management, home, ministry balance, structure, problem-solving, and pretty much do anything within this area.

Identifying areas of difference in marriage and work toward restoring unity.


I’ve raised two grown daughters and have taught on parenting for 45 years. I have worked with all phases and situations. I specialize in helping marriages identify areas of difference and work on restoring agreement and ability to work together.
