The name Twelve Stones Coaching is taken from Joshua 3:10 – Joshua 4:24. The end of that passage reads: 20 And Joshua set up at Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken out of the Jordan. 21 He said to the Israelites, “In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 22 tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’ 23 For the LORD your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The LORD your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. 24 He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the LORD your God.” You see, once again, the Israelites had been stuck. They were stuck at Point A and needed to get to Point B. They saw no clear way to do so—until The Helper stepped in and parted the Jordan River. They then crossed together—on dry ground.
That story has both personal and professional meaning for me. Personally, after a rough, sometimes stormy period—where I was stuck—I was given a patch of dry ground across which I could travel and take steps toward creating a new and rewarding future—a chance to feed my passion for helping others grow and develop, and to realize my dream of being a coach.
As such, my job is to create a partnership with those who are also stuck and need some help making the leap from their current Point A to their desired Point B—getting the necessary clarity and clearing the roadblocks so that the desired change can be made. Let’s be clear, I DO NOT part the water for you. Rather, I accompany you on the journey across the dry path. I am your partner, your confidant, and a listener. I ask thought-provoking, sometimes tough questions and I provide honest feedback. I encourage you to make commitments to change and I encourage accountability for those changes.
As a Christian coach, I bring my values of integrity, honesty, and truthfulness to all of my clients, Christians and non-Christians alike. I neither evangelize nor proselytize during coaching sessions. My faith is about me. Our coaching sessions are about you, your vision, your goals, and the changes you want to make. Our work together is about getting you unstuck and propelling you into the future you desire.
