 I am an  imperfect daughter of God the Father and worshipper of Jesus Christ, my Lord. I cling to the Holy Spirit and His goodness, direction and calling in my life. I have been broken through many life-battles yet I have been blessed deeply by His love and purpose my days to live out the hope of the Gospel. It is my passionate desire and deep joy to encourage women to live in grace and truth and be equipped to have victory in their life-battles. I  love  the Word of God and believe that the Bible is the only divinely inspired Truth.

But as for me, I will sing about your power. Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love. For you have been my refuge, a place of safety when I am in distress.” Psalm 59: 16 NLT

 
 

I would love to have a cup of coffee or green tea with you as we coach!

What Coach Kathleen's coaching clients are saying about working with her:

"My favorite aspects of coaching with Kathleen: Having a cheerleader other than my parents has been eye-opening. Kathleen sees strengths in me that I had forgotten or didn’t realize were there.  She boosts my confidence in genuine ways; it’s not trumped up.  She can actually cite examples to back up her accolades. I have seen an improvement in my teaching evaluations as I’ve become more mindful of how I spend my time.  My health is improving because I’m taking steps to put more margin in my day—including conscious efforts to an earlier bedtime. I am less stressed out because I see that promotion is a reasonable achievement and within reach as I adhere to the steps I’m taking and grow stronger in the skills I’m building.” Anonymous Coaching client


 "If you need someone who will listen wisely and non judgmentally, validate your concerns and fears as well as guide your steps in developing a more intimate and "healthy" relationship with God, Kathleen is an amazing life coach.  She has helped me refocus my priorities in the midst of trying to juggle a household of 5 and working 2 jobs as well as provide valuable Biblical resources to refer to as I try to evolve my prior ways of thinking and doing into words, thoughts and actions that are pleasing to God and Kingdom-focused in the long run!  God bless the work she does for His glory and for us women in today's busied culture."  A.A. Coaching client


 Kathleen has a remarkable knack for listening between the lines and addressing the heart of an issue vs. addressing only the symptoms that I typically share. As a result of her gentle way of both celebrating victories -- no matter how small -- and pressing in on challenges --no matter how daunting, I am better able to appreciate the progress I'm making in several areas in my life. She is a gift from God to me! (Anonymous Coaching client)


 What Coach Kathleen's  speaking /workshop clients are saying about working with her:

One of our primary goals at Joni and Friends Family Retreat is to send the families home with new tools and resources to help them as they deal with the many life challenges they face due to disability.  This year, I think we rang the bell!  Kathleen came to the retreat and brought a Personal Retreat toolbox full of wonderful ideas.  For a couple of good hours, she taught our FR moms how to create their own little personal retreat….how to take care of themselves by drawing closer to the Lord.  What a blessing it was for me to hear the moms as they talked about how they were going to put into practice these new ideas.

What Coach Kathleen's retreat clients are saying about working with her:

"Whether providing private counsel or serving as a group leader or guest speaker at a retreat, Kathleen Brooks  will gently and lovingly walk you closer to the Lord.  With her humor and her own personal stories of recovery and overcoming, you will feel and know the presence, and comfort of the Lord.   Kathleen leads one on an ever deepening and enriching love affair with the Lord.  Emily Dickenson once penned, “Truth must dazzle gradually, or every man be blind”.  Kathleen carefully and lovingly dazzles."

I loved the BE STILL Retreat. Most importantly I learned that HAVING quiet times with God is so essential and that it can be amazingly special. I also learned about HOW to keep my quiet time with the Lord. There are so many things you can do to grow and learn, and spending that time with the Lord can make miracles happen in your life. The Be Still Retreat taught me that just always remembering to make that time, is the beginning of knowing the Lord and myself in a stronger healthier amazingly special way.   Retreat Participant:  Vicki Anderholt
