Are you a ‘get-it-done’ gal trying to do the right thing?
Say goodbye to all the People-pleasing and Perfectionism!
Stop running from one thing to another, reacting instead of responding..
If all you want is to love others well, be like Jesus, and find some joy–
You are in the right place!
This is the place to get the tools, the support, the permission to start living aligned and alive!
I love creating this space for you because I know how much you demand of yourself and how much others expect of you.
As a recovering “good Christian girl”, I understand how it feels to understand yourself through the lens of “do more,” make sure everyone is comfortable (even if you aren’t), and stay small so no one can say you are “too big for your britches.”. I grew up surrounded by beautiful women of faith who understood their worth through what they did or accomplished not who they were.
In my training as a therapist, my own experience, and my work with many women, I have learned that how we think and where we put our focus makes a difference! I can help you understand why you do the things you do and give you the tools to move out of that place of performance to become that uniquely gifted, and intentionally aligned woman God meant you to be.
is an 8-week group for Christian women who want more than just getting through the day.
This is an intentional space for women who want to learn how to show up with more grace, more responsiveness, and aligned with a sense of passion and purpose in a world where you are pulled in so many directions.
IGA is a unique community that empowers and equips you to move beyond the old story of the ‘good little Christian girl’ who has been denying the story that God put in her heart.
This is for you if you are ready to:
If you are tired of people-pleasing, perfectionism, doubt, and worry-
this is the time, the place, and the group for you.
You will feel empowered with a deep sense and awareness your unique gifts and strengths.
You will have written statements and a clear understanding of your values, your priorities, and how you want to show up in this world.
You will identify yourself separately from what you do and discern the motives for your choices.
You will have a process to identify, understand, and address thought patterns that overwhelm and are not aligned with your truth.
You will have permission to explore new perspectives in light of who and whose you are.
You will have new tools and skills to renew your thoughts, set your course, and pursue that purpose.
Intentional is the starting place. If you are not intentional, the thought, the goal, or the priority will sit in the “I want this” stage, never moving forward. Getting clear about your goals, your why, and your vision aligns you with your desired outcomes. Choosing not to be intentional means that you put off identifying and owning your passion. It is making a choice not to articulate what you want, put off making a plan to address the changes – meaning you stay where you are right now.
Grace is the place you look at the story you tell yourself about who you are. The true story – where God created you in His image, where you are dearly loved, kept, and called. The world is desperate for you to step into your calling, use your gifts and your strengths. Becoming aware of the ways you deny yourself that grace that you speak over others so eloquently about God’s abounding love for them changes your perspective, allowing room for things like joy, peace, patience. Learning the language of grace involves changing the conversation with yourself and writing a new story instead of narrating the same old one. Then in the day-to-day practice field of your life, you learn to renew your mind and step into your influence to honor the creation that is specifically you.
Academy is a place of study or training in a particular field. You, my beautiful friend, are the unique field you will be entering to study. If you love to learn, have tools, understand why you are doing what you do, and want resources to change, this is significant. If your feelings are swirling around the facts, and you feel stuck in the emotions, you need support to bring the knowledge into action to move forward.
Intentional Grace Academy takes you from feelings that overwhelm you to mindfully and prayerfully making choices that honor who you are and how you move forward with confidence, clarity, aligned with purpose and passion for the next chapter in your life.
