10 Things I Wish You Knew About Coaching!

MarvaeCoaching2 Comments

When people discover that I am a life coach, most often I get two responses. There is the nod and smile followed by “what made you decide to do that?” which makes me think their understanding of coaching is vague. The other response I get is the spontaneous scoop on Uncle George or some other person in their life who they deem in great need of someone like me. To be fair, prior to completing my coaching certification program, my concept of coaching was not completely accurate either. In fact, I had some pretty big misconceptions. It’s just hard to … Read More

Sitting down face to face with another coach is a rare thing for me. Oh, I have dozens and dozens of coach friends in the US and abroad and we talk; just not here in Chattanooga. That’s why having lunch with a fellow coach here in Chattanooga this week was such a blessing. Spending time with someone who truly understands the life of a coach and what coaching is all about is like that first cup of coffee on an early morning; an energizing boost!

When I share with people that I … Read More

The word "Coaching" with each letter written on a sticky note pinned on a blue board

Despite the ever-increasing number of life coaches in the world, most people nod and smile when I tell them I am a Certified Christian Life Coach. They have a vague idea of what a coach does, maybe. To be honest, prior to my training and certification process, my own knowledge was a little fuzzy. I knew I wanted to do something to influence leaders and help them reach their full potential.

Bradley and Marvae on their wedding day

My husband and I did some non-traditional things in our wedding. For those who know us well, this is not surprising! My favorite out-of-the-ordinary thing we did was braiding three cords together as the pastor read Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 which says: Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, … Read More
