What if I told you that you could transform your marriage without changing your partner?
If it sounds like a load of shit, then you're in the right place. If it sounds possible but impossible for your situation, then stick around. If it sounds about right, but you're not sure how or why, definitely keep reading and coming back for more.
My name is Jennifer Greer, and I'm not only a Certified Professional Coach, I'm proof that coaching works.
The picture at the top of this page is the few tattoos and one child less version of me (but not childless, because I've never been one to do things in any "proper" order). I had a lot of hopes and a lot of expectations, but not a lot of experience in the forever kind of commitment. I would soon find myself wondering what I had gotten myself into with this whole institutional love thing, which would lead me to seeking myself in ways I had never thought possible.
Those ways *eventually* lead to my becoming a marriage coach.
When I went through the certification program at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, I did a lot of deep inner work. Then I got deeper with my own life coach. The deeper I went, the higher I got. High on life, y'all. And the higher I got, the more powerful I became. The more I stepped into my own power, the less I judged my marriage and my spouse. The less judgment I had, the more space I created for my marriage to grow. The more my marriage grew, the more my husband and I blossomed.
Then one day, I realized I was no longer looking at other couples and wishing my marriage could look like theirs.
The dark days were over, and even though we were stepping into the light, we were no longer blinded.
This blog is a way for me to share my journey as both a wife and a coach. I want to help men and women to reconnect with not only their marriage, but first and foremost with their own SELF. Although my marriage made a comeback after some heavy flirting with divorce, this blog is intended to empower and inspire growth in even the strongest of marriages.
I truly believe that marriage is one of the greatest catalyst for personal growth, and it's through personal growth that we can create a greater life for ourselves and all of those around us. We are all in this life, on this planet, in this universe, together. When one person experiences greater love, that ripple reaches far and wide. It all begins with you.
Stop in next time to read how your marriage is a mirror- is it a fun house mirror or that mirror slanted at that perfect angle in the good light at your favorite store?
