    Life Coaching Webinar

    "Avenues to Wholeness: Life Coaching" Webinar

    On September 19, 2019 American Baptist Women’s Ministries hosted a webinar Avenues to Wholeness: Life Coaching. Have you found yourself perplexed or even stuck at the crossroads of change?  American Baptist Women’s Ministries and Life Coach Elaine Cody led an interactive webinar on the essential role of a life coach in your life. In addition to providing a sample coaching session, Elaine explained how life coaching differs from consulting, therapy and other types of guidance. Watch this webinar on demand to get valuable resources and tools from an experienced Christian professional life coach.  

    Get an idea of what was covered: 

    1. Scripture:  
    ·      Proverbs 27: 17- “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
    ·      Ephesians 4: 12-13-“to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
    2. A coach is a trained professional. 
    3. Clarity of thought and action are two of the benefits of coaching.
    4.  Whether something is an opportunity or not can be thoughtfully determined through coaching.
    5. Doublemindedness which contributes to stress can be alleviated through coaching. 
    6. Coaching is a good place to explore ideas and dreams that you may have but don’t know where to start.
    7. Coaching is not to be confused with therapy, discipling or and other emotional/spiritual modalities.
