Can coaching & testimony co-exist?
Do you have a strong testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ?
Are you pretty consistent in communicating with Heavenly Father through prayer and delving into His word?
Is your teen pushing all the limits and causing strain in your relationship and doubt in all the parenting choices you’ve made over the years?
When our teens start rebelling or live a life contrary to how they’ve been raised, sometimes it can rock our own foundation. Fear and desperation can even tend to seclude us from, not only other people, but also from God, especially when our prayers seem to go unanswered.
Is the answer to leave our spiritual base behind and white-knuckle our way through this experience that’s been handed to us? Absolutely not! In fact, this is the time when we need our spiritual roots to keep running deep. But that can be hard when doubt and confusion ~ about them, about us, about everything ~ seems to creep into our lives.
And this is where coaching can help.
Rest assured, though ~ I am a fully active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who strives diligently to daily strengthen my own testimony through prayer, and study of the scriptures and words of the prophets and apostles; I am fully engaged in my current calling; I attend the temple regularly; and I seek for and strive to follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost. My love for my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ, is strong, and my testimony of the Gospel runs deep.
I also believe the adversary spends a lot of time trying to isolate us and discourage us when our teens aren’t living the way we wish they were, the way they’ve been taught to live. In addition to prayer, scriptures, and being fully active in the Church, coaching can help you draw closer to the Lord. I mean, when I doubt my own worth as a daughter of God, I’m less likely to turn to Him in prayer. When I feel like a failure and a lost cause, I don’t have much hope that even the Savior can help heal my heart and soul. When I’m consumed with thoughts of what I should have done differently, it’s harder for me to hear the whisperings of the Holy Spirit.
So, rest assured ~ the coaching I do helps you clear your head and put you in a better place to feel His direction in your life.
But it only works if you actually do the work. Reading is different than doing. Knowing is not the same as implementing. Hoping is not the same as making it happen.
Gone are the days when we believed parenting would get easier as our kids got older. But your reality doesn’t have to rock your world ~ or your testimony. In fact, it can make it stronger than ever.
Make 2019 the year you improve your relationships in your family ~ no matter your situation. Make 2019 the year you make yourself a priority in your life. Make 2019 the year you find peace in parenting.
Resistance shows itself when you’re ready to go to the next level ~ spiritually and emotionally.
