What is Choice Coaching?

Our coaching process is about helping people to stop creating their own misery, while helping them take responsibility for their own happiness and success by putting their time and energy into the things they control, rather than the things they don’t. This means leading people away from blame, anger, and resentment and into introspection, acceptance and proactivity. Our process demolishes the victim mentality and empowers  clients to reach their goals, while creating the meaningful relationships in their lives that will support and encourage them along the way.

Victory in the Wait

By Sylvester Baugh

Victory in the Wait describes how important it is to know how to wait and the impact of not waiting correctly. When we wait, we are communicating with God. We are not always waiting to receive from God, sometimes He has us in a season of wait until our will breaks. Effective waiting symbolizes submission, knowing that God is in control. He may have us waiting to develop our Fruit of the Spirit and to revive us. There are times when we might not feel like praying yet, we are needing or desiring something from God.

By Gigi Kilroe

“From Within is a riveting biographical work of one woman’s journey as a sexual abuse survivor, who transitioned from the physical and emotional pain and betrayal to a newly found passion to help others going through similar circumstances.”
