I realized the other day that my strength in Life Coaching is giving my clients a “trajectory.” I enjoy watching my clients reach goals that they never knew, originally, existed. “Existed” is defined as “to have life or the functions of vitality.”

I was on a walk today and I asked the Lord... “what is my deal with fear?” I realized over the last several years there are a few fears that have surfaced that have almost immobilized me at times. One is that my husband will lose his job. The second is that one of our other sources of income, because of the economy, will dissolve. I have other fears that I battle but today I deal with these ugly fears. I am well aware that loss happens. Believe me. Sometimes I have control of my losses and other times I have no control.

This morning I was reading in the book of Luke, the story about Mary and how the angel visited her and told her she has found “favor” with God. In fact, the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found “favor” with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” 

This book is practical in its instruction and helpful with interesting illustrations and advice that you can hang onto and implement easily in your relationship with your adult kids. The book begs you to ask the question, “what kind of relationship do you want with your adult kids and how do I get there?”

You have just received a phone call from your son and his wife has cancer.  You have a friend whose husband has had an affair and leaving his wife and family for another woman.  You have been diagnosed with breast cancer.  What about your adult child that comes to you and shares with you that they no longer believe in your Jesus.
