What is a Life Coach?

A Life Coach is someone who walks beside a person or family, helping them move forward in their life. This is different than mentoring. In Life Coaching, a Life Coach provides the person being coached a “taste of grace” where they:

  • Find a safe place to explore their inner-most thoughts
  • Find someone who totally listens and is present with them
  • Find another person who has good intentions toward them
  • Receive acceptance without blame or ridicule
  • Are challenged to reach their potential and not settle for mediocrity
  • Have a sense of security
  • Find hope and a place to dream

This is what it means for us to “do life with others,” helping them move to a more preferential future.

  • “Good coaching isn’t the art of giving good answers. It’s the art of asking good questions.” – Bob Logan

  • “The one who gives an answer before he listens—this is foolishness….” – Proverbs 18:13

  • “The first duty of love is to listen.” – Paul Tillich
