“Christy’s blog posts are loaded with valuable information about how to navigate life. Big issues, big options for taking on the issues, very full of good reading and good actions if you heed the wisdom and suggestions and do what moves you. Thank you Christy for bringing yourself and real-life experiences into all this. I have been truly moved and inspired.


“I am SO incredibly thankful for Christy and her beautiful heart and insightful spirit. I was referred to Christy and found her immediately to be uplifting. She is an amazing woman of faith who reinforces courage to stand up and fight for the best.


“This was my first experience with a life coach and it was great! Christy asked thought provoking questions to make you think harder about specific aspects of your life. She was very attentive, and had useful information to make this process a success.”
