Covid, anxiety, fear, these are all overwhelming us. In this season of upheaval it can feel like we are chained to crisis management. How can we lead in this mess? It seems like we are constantly putting out fires and not leading into the next steps for the benefit of the church. Can we break the chains that prevent us from moving forward? Is it even possible to have a vision for the future?
Maybe it's time for a coach to help you lead through this crazy time!
"Dear Sarah, Thank you for sharing your coaching gift with me.
I feel so blessed. Grace and Peace.
Navigating the waters of ministry can be overwhelming. Coaching can help you get to the next level of adaptive leadership in your church setting.

One Pilgrim of Many on the Camino de Santiago: In Search of Spiritual Renewal
We are spiritual beings. Each of us seeks, we yearn to know more about ourselves and the One who created us to be. Our desire to know and to be fully known can take us down many roads. My longing took me to Chârtres, France, the Taizé Community, and the Camino de Santiago from France to Spain.
While it is full of color pictures, this is not a handbook on “how to do the Camino.” Rather, this is encouragement, my daily blog, and lessons I learned, to remind you that you CAN grow in your own spiritual journey, no matter where you are in life. There are some “Camino hacks” that I learned along the way. May this book encourage you on your Camino, wherever it may be.
