For many years my life was pretty typical for some one raised LDS. I earned all the necklaces and certificates offered to girls and young woman. I attended early morning seminary, graduated from BYU and served a full time mission in the Philippines. Shortly on my return I met and married Daniel in the Temple. Together we have four children.
I have served in the Primary and YW presidencies, as early morning seminary teacher and institute teacher as well as countless other callings. Before my faith transition I was an practicing member of the church in every sense of the word.
Then came my faith transition.
It feels like an understatement to say my faith transition was challenging on our marriage. It was like a tsunami.
We both tried therapy and coaching. Both were necessary but we were really able to take the tools we learned in coaching to settle into our “new” relationship with a bit more grace and dignity.
It is no secret that our relationship is still vey much a work in progress, but we keep on trying and keep on working.
Shortly after my faith transition, I decided I wanted to train as a life coach and help others navigate the challenges that can come up in a mixed faith marriage and faith transition.
Eventually, I quit my job as a litigator practicing complex business litigation to devote my time to my practice with those of us in a mixed faith marriage.
Now I spend my days working with amazing clients on their marriages and faith transitions. In my free time I love remodeling my house, petting my dog and above all hanging out with Daniel.
