Have you suffered loss? Has life stopped working the way you planned? When you think of God, have you been hurt by a doctrine that insists that it’s somehow your fault, that you have to ‘do better’ to be acceptable?
Life Gets Hard for all of us.
I've been here, navigated these waters, and am am here to help you find your map.
Fill out the form below so we can talk about what this looks like for you. I coach over Zoom, so you don’t need to live nearby.
I speak from my own experience. I am an ex pastor who has been damaged by performance based belief, a father who lost his infant daughter, a husband who lived in an emotionally abusive marriage for 20 years, and chose divorce over raising his son in that environment.
I’ve walked the crooked road to find life on the other side of pain, loss, and the need to reshape how I come to God. I’m still on that path, but I’ve come farther than my darkest days would have let me believe.
I speak to offer hope; not platitudes, as they bring despair, but the hope of a life on the other side of loss. There is nothing that will make life not hurt.
But there is a God who meets us in our pain, even when that doesn’t mean He takes the pain away. There is a grace beyond any performance we could muster, that holds us when the world we believed in comes apart.
