Are you ready to...

  • checkmark

    Break free from feelings of helplessness and powerlessness?

  • checkmark

    Gain greater clarity on your life’s difficulties and how to begin to handle them in new ways?

  • checkmark

    Write a new chapter to your life story with YOU as the HERO instead of the victim?

  • checkmark

    Learn to live from your CORE Values instead of your emotions?

Even if you don’t feel ready to make the changes you know you need to make, you know you’re in pain. Your life, your marriage or other significant relationship isn’t working.

You feel scared, confused and you already know that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, hoping for different results. Please don’t do that.

This next year can be different.

Your group session time together with your coach will be interactive and personal. You will have an opportunity to submit your own personal goals and be coached to take your first steps or your next steps toward positive growth and godly change.

Over the past 30 years my coaches and I have worked with hundreds if not thousands of women who want to get whole, holy and healthy... and we know how to help you. I created this six month group experience for Christian women who are ready to do their own work to be empowered to change.

How to Respond Wisely

In this session, you will learn the difference between responding wisely and reacting emotionally by practicing the powerful tool of self-awareness. You will also learn to observe yourself without judgment while allowing yourself to be in the moment. You will gain greater clarity into different parts of YOU and which part of you decides.

By practicing these powerful tools, you will notice thoughts and feelings that are out of alignment with responding wisely and being your best self. You will no longer be reacting from fear or unidentified lies but now growing in your ability to handle stress and respond wisely.

Tools to Manage Triggers

To write a new story, you must learn to manage the old one. Triggers are the activators of our old story. Learning to recognize and manage them empowers you to not be controlled by them.

You will learn and practice several techniques for grounding your heart, mind and body, leading you into thoughtful and determined courses of action and calm body and spirit.

Over-Functioning and Enabling

This teaching cuts through the Biblical confusion. You can be loving without enabling or over functioning. You will have the opportunity to practice speaking up in preparation for some of your most challenging moments. We want you to be empowered to be bold and discerning when engaging in challenging and conflictual conversations.

Boundaries, Consequences, and Good Self-Care

A healthy woman is one who knows who she is as well as her limitations. She does not feel guilty taking good care of herself because she knows that self-care empowers her to be her best. Learning to set good boundaries with one’s self and others creates healthier and stronger relationships.

In this session, you will learn what a boundary is and is not and how you enforce your boundaries with natural consequences. Imagine stepping forward with a clear sense of what is yours to own, no longer being over-responsible for others and activities that are not meant for you to carry.

Stop dancing The Destructive Dance - The Karpman Triangle

Healthy relational dynamics require us to understand both healthy dynamics that serve the relationship well and those dynamics that are dysfunctional. In this session, you will learn a specific model for understanding key ways in which you get “stuck” in destructive relational dances. Imagine having clarity around what is actually happening, choosing to step out of confusion and deciding how you want to dance differently. In this session, you will gain further tools for thinking and acting differently when you experience these dynamics,

Build Your Big Circle Self

Discovering your authentic self provides the internal compass to life and vitality. This will be an opportunity to discover what God has put inside of you that is most important for you to live out, as well as grounding you to step out of the destructive dance. You will learn to live more consistently through your big circle by choosing rather than reacting, no longer being a victim or rescuer.

What Others Have Said...

“YAY! I LOVED the first Empowered to Change group experience and am still benefiting from the FB community.

Do it again please! Whatever it was you did before-- the Lord is continuing to use it!)

“I’m a slow learner so the six month duration was very important to me…

but more than that-- half a year is long enough to get to know each other a little bit online as a group. (Or at least to go through stuff with each other…) And I really liked it that the FB page didn’t shut down after our six months were over. That’s been cool too...

“During the past 11 months the group has shared that FB page, it’s turned into a little community we can bop in and out of when time permits.

(Even the ones who dropped out seem to stop in every once in a while…) Although other ‘real time’ support groups are important, there’s something about an online place to go that’s really helpful after being isolated for so long-- especially when it requires writing in order to communicate.” — Woman in a difficult marriage

“To be honest, I was concerned that my story or questions wouldn’t be relevant to the other members of the group - I thought it was really just me going through this.

After joining, quickly I knew my coach was there to help and support all of us. As I listened to others I realized their stories often related in some way to mine. It really opened my eyes. So, I began to speak up, knowing my story might speak to them in some way too. My coach has an easy going way to get to the point and help you stay on track. I’m so glad I took the chance!”

— Woman in a destructive marriage

“I learned some valuable lessons.

Knowing Core Values (who I am) is different than my fickle feelings and thoughts is huge for me. Avoiding ‘what if’ thinking and ‘worse case scenario disease’ will also be helpful to me. Difference between acknowledging and accepting is good for me to know. I acknowledged the problems 10 years ago, but have only moved closer to accepting them in the last year. Being responsible for my well-being is new to me. Giving up the hope of change in my husband has come very slowly. Grieving currently as this is sinking in. Class helped me see a lot of things. Trusting God to work it all ‘into’ me. I pray it will move me forward. I need hope for me and kids.”

Pamela, Group participant

“Before Empowered To Change, there was a sense of fear and uneasiness to focus on myself, I’m sure a result of the years of abuse.

However, all that changed when I started. All of a sudden I saw just how far from healthy I was. I was uneasy and fearful all the time. As I listened to the bravery of the women and saw that my coach really invested and cared, I began to warm up to being “Empowered to Change”. If you are thinking about joining - I would say to go for it! The instruction is great and the support of the other women in the same sort of boat is validating and encouraging.”
