After a LOT of waffling I have decided to resume my training as a Christian Life Coach.
The waffling had to do with my own uncertainty and the spiritual warfare I was encountering. The enemy is very accomplished at working through our weakness and one of my biggest weaknesses is lack of confidence. So whenever I feel called to do something I can’t help wondering if my reservations are realistic or if I’m selling myself short – or if the devil is amplifying my own tendency to doubt.
I have found that if I pray on a new venture long enough, however, insight will come. In this case the insight was that I should do as I feel called and am on the right track. So I started my training, came up with my own coaching model, created a new brand new coaching website and turned an old facebook page into a coaching page.
I also, and this is the big one, decided to go with exactly what I feel God is calling me to do – through coaching, through this blog, through my podcast, and through both of my ebooks in process. And that is to reach out to others still in the new age or occult or at any point in the process of breaking free and do what I can to help them.
My idea for coaching is to work with those who are leaving the new age for Christianity and help them navigate the many, oftentimes challenging, transitions involved. In the beginning I felt unsure about this admittedly narrow niche because almost everyone I know was telling me that, as an RN, I should stick to health and wellness coaching.
While wellness is part of my coaching model, I really feel called to work with ex-new agers exclusively. And so I am. I realize that this is probably going to be a small demographic but I’m okay with that. To me, the most important thing is doing what I believe God is equipping me to do.
About My Coaching
It is my goal to provide reasonably priced and sliding scale services. I am also planning to offer donation based coaching to any ex-new agers interested in doing their own Christian outreach.
I will also be offering some free coaching sessions during my training so if you’re interested in booking one of those sessions, please contact me through CoachingByBarbara.com or facebook.com/LifeCoachingByBarbara
