A few short weekends ago, God moved mountains and provided for me to attend the 2015 Christian Coach Institute “Inspire” Conference, just for CCI graduates. I found myself surrounded by coaches who quickly became friends and deep encouragers. That’s what occurs when you allow yourself to connect with others who share the same passion for coaching. Even today I struggle for the right words to describe this amazing weekend. It was my time to refuel, reconnect with my passion, be who God created me to be, share, learn, be encouraged and pour into others. I shared many laughs, a few tears, held many hands and embraced the hugs of coaches on fire for God. It was truly a Spirit-led weekend that I will never forget.
I returned home with my cup overflowing. My mind was filled with new connections, ideas to implement and endless Evernote files. Words from Laurie Beth Jones and Kim Garst ran echoing through my visionary mindset. I was ready to take action. I was ready and eager to move.
And then life happened. I had family driving to do, calls to return, back-to-school supplies to purchase, laundry, website updating, bills, meetings and even diapers to change. I had to keep-up while adding to my list with new ideas.
Can you relate?
Have you ever returned from a conference fired-up to take the next best step, only to be thrown incredibly off track by the reality of overflowing paperwork, large obstacles while struggling just catching-up from your brief absence? Those around you lack the fire you now posses. Even worse, you may even have those that dare to blow your fire out.
How do you make the most from your conference experience? Here are a few steps I’ve implemented to help you process and actually act on the material you bring home.
Survivors are great note-takers. Thrivers are great action-takers (and future note-givers).
Dare to do more than just survive, stand-out and thrive!

I have overcome disabilities (coloboma vision-loss, severe hearing-loss and a small right arm). I am a double brain cancer survivor. I use the story God has given me to move beyond what I am surviving and thrive in His promises. I enjoy being a wife to Steve for over 12 years and mother to three boys (ages 9, 7 and 4).
