MEET YOUR WILD SACRED HOLY GUIDE
AS A LIFE AND LEADERSHIP COACH FOR CHRISTIAN WOMAN I HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE HELPING WOMEN FIND THE FULLNESS OF GOD, BUT THIS IS ALSO A VERY PERSONAL JOURNEY FOR ME.
For the last decade I've been on my own journey to break free from learned smallness and step into wild sacred holy womanhood.
10 years ago I audibly heard God ask me what legacy I was leaving for my children. He reminded me of the old kinda cheesy footprints poem my grandmother had and asked me what trail I was blazing for them. What footprints was I leaving for them to follow. It shook me.
I had only been going to church for a few years but I suddenly was so drawn to God that I dove headfirst into everything Christian. I learned so much about God and myself but there was this constant nagging at my heart every time being a woman came up in a book, sermon, or meeting.
What the church people were saying in public didn’t match up with what God was telling me in private. While doing the things God told me to do I was dismissed, mansplained, and called satanic and unbiblical.
It wasn’t just one church that put limits on me.
I learned that an entire system promoted gender bias that was toxic for women.
Gender bias wasn't only present in the church, it was the norm and it was thriving.
WHEN I REALIZED THIS UNGODLY VIEW OF WOMANHOOD WAS DEEPLY EMBEDDED IN THE CHURCH, MY HEART BROKE.
I loved God and didn’t want to leave His side, but when I looked at my children I knew I was still passing baggage that hurt me, on to them. I wasn't OK with that.
The GenXer in me KNEW there had to be a different way.
Surely it wasn’t God that made people act this way.
So I began challenging everything (as an Enneagram 8 should) and I began to untangle the God who created men and women to be equal partners from the toxic patriarchal religious culture who preferred to use our power for their own purpose without honoring our God given equality.
It took a lot of years to sort it out.
Conferences and retreats.
And even a couple of college degrees.
BUT THE THING THAT MADE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE WAS THE WISE WOMEN WHO HELD ME UP WHEN I DIDN’T KNOW WHERE ELSE TO TURN.
They were hard to find but they became allies and mentors who both challenged and championed me to a freer being.
And I’m here now, with a few more scars and a few more laugh lines on my face, and it’s glorious.
It was worth every single tear.
I want you to get here to because waking up everyday as your wild sacred holy self is the way God created you to be.
I'M EXTENDING MY HAND AND OFFERING TO BE THE WISE OLD WOMEN WHO GUIDES YOU DOWN THIS TWISTY PATH OF SELF DISCOVERY.
It’s where God is calling every woman to go.
The Holy Spirit will lead the way.
Jesus will give you rest when you are weary.
I’ll be by your side the entire way.
And when you get to the other side, you’ll remember who you were always created to be.
