Hi, I’m Terry!
I’m a Christian, wife of 41 years, mom of ten, homeschool teacher of 29 years, and majorly in the “grandmomma” category. Finding myself in “forced retirement” as my kids grew up, I found my second calling — Life Coaching!
When I began my life as a wife and mom, I had the crazy idea that with enough knowledge and work, my family would “arrive.” We’d have a perfect marriage and the happiest family. But when things didn’t look as pretty as expected, I got frustrated and angry — at myself, my husband, and my kids. Little did I know I had a perfectionist lurking inside!
I tried to control my life and family by reading everything I could get my hands on, watching what other moms were doing, and working my tail off trying to make it all work. I’d try something new, but usually, the “old me” slithered back in.
Fortunately, God was gently showing me that all my work, and those trials and errors, were pointing somewhere else. I began to listen to Him. Really listen. I began to surrender my control, bit by stubborn bit. I learned to ignore the noise around me and focus on who God designed me to be. I needed to trust His process to see what He was doing in our family.
I realized I was worshipping the end result instead of the God who gave me my life and family!
Reaching out to a few coaches, in particular my life coach, I discovered what was already inside me. In my quest to find “perfect,” I had silenced my common sense! My life coach asked deep questions and allowed me time to draw out what was there all along.
By accepting God’s unique design for me and my family, I slowly overcame my fear of making mistakes in raising my kids or not having the perfect marriage. With newfound confidence, I could choose the ideas that were best for our family without fear of failure. This brought more growth and more joy.
I want to help you enjoy the process of living life and loving your family without the stress and worry that you aren’t doing or being enough. You really can find the freedom to enjoy life and to love your family well!
