More About Melody

Mel lives in Nashville (originally MinneSNOWta) with her husband Kirk and two young children. She feels coaching is what she is meant to do because it draws a person from a place of where you are to where you want to be, and in the midst of that client-led process we get to know Jesus even more. Nothing excites her more to see the chains disappear, hope abound, and freedom in an individual’s life because we uncover who God is and who He wants you to become in the situation we are processing together. She loves being active outdoors, reading, hitting up garage sales with my husband, and “racing” around with her two kids.

More About Jennifer

I love Jesus! Grew up in the mountains of North GA, and after over 30 years this Southern girl moved from the Mid-Atlantic to TN! Retired from the Federal sector in 2014, followed by some work in and across the private sector. Now I “keep up” with family (husband, 5 grown children, and 6 grandchildren), friends, music, Choir, piano, travel, reading, baking (which I fondly call “Bake and Share”), volunteering, staying active, and embracing life! Also loving on Maggie, our 10-year-old pup. Coaching can be a “game-changer” for discovery, reflection, and action. Praying you experience all God has in store for you!
