“I met with Deanne looking for some “self-care” in the midst of family challenges I am facing. 

In our session together, God gave me a perspective of my situation from His point of view. That really shifted my understanding and helped increase the resiliency I’d lost. 

I became familiar with Deanne through the Freedom Coaching Circle so when she first began to offer sessions, I scheduled right away.

Deanne facilitated my connection with Jesus well and the things I experienced in the activation are still bearing fruit in my life. 

Deanne is easy to engage with and gentle in her invitation with the questions she provided to connect me to God’s heart.  The Peace she carries melts anxiety.

Deanne is someone who can take you to Jesus, even if you struggle to engage on your own. She makes heart connections with Jesus easy. Why wouldn’t you want a “coffee date” with Jesus?

This type of engagement with Jesus, in the eyes of my heart, in interactive listening prayer has accelerated my growth and understanding of who God is and how He sees me!

What surprises me the most is how God continues to build daily on what He showed to me in our session. 

I highly recommend Deanne for a spiritual coaching session. If you have been struggling with any type of emotional fatigue, or feel your relationship with God is missing an element of intimacy, schedule a time with her. Together you can explore the areas of your heart lacking hope.  You were created for Freedom! Why wait?”
