“And they lived happily ever after!”  Except they didn’t! There is no such thing as a perfect marriage. However, if your goal is to have a healthy marriage, this session is for you.  Great relationships aren’t build in a day, they are built daily.

Everyone wants to make a difference, but nobody wants to be different.  We can count our days, months and years, or we can make them count.  In this session, you’ll discover how live your best life now!

Teamwork makes the dream work. Your company, church or organization, is only as strong as the team that leads it.  Discover how to develop a team concept built on trust, unity and purpose.

Life is filled with uncertainty. You may not get to choose your circumstances, but you get to choose your reaction to them. Perspective changes everything.  In fact, transformation begins by changing the way you think.  Even in the middle of chaos, you can discover beauty.

Conflict is inevitable. When two or more people breathe the same air, eventually there will be conflict.  the problem is, we don’t always know how to resolve it.  We typically ignore it or attack it in a manner that only makes it worse.  The good news is that it’s possible to have healthy, thriving relationships in every area of your life, even where conflict exists.  In this sessions, you will be equipped with the tools to build those types of relationships and approach conflict in a way that allows everyone to grow and win.

An AUTO-RESPONSE is our “DEFAULT POSITION” that we develop over time in certain circumstances.  Let’s be honest.  We’ve all been through a lot of adversity lately and our AUTO-RESPONSE isn’t always healthy.  We are often left feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed and afraid.  In this session, we will talk about the following questions: 

  • What is anxiety? 
  • Where does it come from?
  • What do we do about it?

Everyone seems to be searching for “happiness,” but few seem to find it. Honestly, happiness is overrated. In this talk, we will discuss how to discover joy and purpose in your life again.
