Iâ€™ve been interested in personal development for a long time. It just made sense to me that to point people to Jesus, I needed to allow His Spirit to be expressed through my behavior. After leaving a position in urban missions, I went back to finish the degree Iâ€™d begun many years earlier. Even then it took me a while to finish because along the way my Dad became ill and I helped with his care. Five weeks after he died, I was diagnosed with cancer.
Both of those events slowed me down but finally I graduated. Now Iâ€™m an Emotional Intelligence Coach. That means I help people increase their ability to be aware of emotions so they can make wiser decisions. The research on EQ behavior is amazingâ€”showing better relationships, higher productivity, and improved health.
Because life can be too busy and technology can swamp our best intentions to equip our children, Iâ€™m also passionate about helping others cultivate EQ skills in children so they are also able to make wise decisions.
