Life Coaching GIVEAWAY

About a month or so ago, I finished my first round of life-coaching with my very first clients. 

I'll admit, I was slightly nervous. I mean, what if they didn't like the program? What if they didn't like me? What if I'm not good at this whole "Arbinger-trained life coach" thing to begin with? What if I failed? More importantly, what if I failed them?

It was intimidating and I went all sorts of insecure (don't we all?) because let's be honest, it can be SO scary to try new things! The fear of the unknown... the fear of failing…just the feeling of fear in general is unpleasant. 

Well, I am so so so SO glad that I took the giant leap and DID IT because, not only I have gotten really wonderful feedback, I absolutely LOVE DOING IT! 

Connecting with these beautiful people inspires me to do,  and BE, better. 

I feel it such a blessing to have had this amazing opportunity to spend one-on-one time with such brave, willing, open, vulnerable, resilient women-- who I now feel are my close friends. We laughed together. We cried together. I think a few of us may have cussed together? ;) We challenged one another. We encouraged one another. We became agents of positive change, together

It. was. awesome. and now that The Togetherness Project is over, I am ready for more!

That said, it's time for another Life Coaching GIVEAWAY!

Here's a glimpse of some of the LOVELY women I had the privilege of working with and what they had to say about the program!


This program changed my life! I have been dealing with some very hard things in my personal life and struggling with depression and anxiety off and on. I feel like I now have the tools I need to take charge of my life and move forward! Over the years, I've felt guilty taking me-time for fear of being selfish with my time, but I see now that it is NECESSARY to make sure I am recharged, grounded, and balanced in my life. When I am doing what I need to do for me, all other aspects of life fall into a much better place, including relationships that are suffering, personal anxieties, and my abilities as a mom and friend. I am finding confidence in myself and a passion for life that has been lacking due to my trials. But I can see now that I have so much power over my life, and I don't have to be a victim to situations that have taken place. I can be whoever I choose to be, and I am choosing greatness. Thank you to Jacy and Illume Life! I am taking strides that are changing my life for the better, and I feel much more joy and peace than I have in a long time! ~K.L.

I loved my experience with Ilume Life Coaching! I went into this not really knowing what to expect, but I came out of it with a lot of personal discoveries about myself and my relationship with others. I feel that my perspective has truly been enlightened because even though my circumstances haven't changed, I look at my life differently and see value in the things I didn't before. Jacy is phenomenal! She listens so well and helps you answer the difficult questions that you might not be able to on your own. I appreciated how empathetic she is, especially at those times when some discoveries might be discouraging--she was one of the best cheerleaders I've ever had! I highly recommend her and her method for anyone who feels a little stuck and needs some help moving forward. ~K.B.

My life is forever changed because of the work I did with Jacy as my life coach.  I was able to gain the skills I needed to let go of my past traumas and change from having a heart at war, to one of peace.  When I judge myself less I, in turn, judge others less.  I learned that it is okay to be my genuine self and when I allow myself to be real, I am open to letting others in my life.  I am forever grateful to have been given the opportunity of working with Jacy. ~K.M.

The last few years, I've faced several challenges in my life.  Working with Jacy helped me to take a different, more positive perspective to those circumstances.  Jacy was able to provide a compassionate, friendly environment and I looked forward to our meetings every week.  Jacy is a wonderful example to all and encouraged me to be and do something remarkable. Thank you Jacy and Illume Life Coaching. ~M.J.

This is Courage!

This is courage. 

This is what rising above is all about. 

This is a glimpse of what 320 resilient women from 20 different states and 4 different countries (U.S., England, Mexico, and Canada) at The Togetherness Project conference looks like.

Isn't it beautiful? 

Fearlessness is NOT the absence of fear. 

Fearlessness it how we face the scary and uncertain situations in life, and who we become as a result. 

Fearless people don't focus on the OUTCOME. 

Rather, they TRUST that no matter what happens, they will COME OUT! 

Some will come out in recovering, healthier marriages…. others as single women, or single mothers… others with more compassion and empathy… others with a confidence and strength that they had no idea existed within them… others more dignified, more graceful, more humble, more bold even. No matter where you personally are in the process, quiet the thoughts that say you aren't good enough, important enough, capable enough to get through it… because you are choosing to trust yourself! 

Today, you BELIEVE that you ARE good enough, you ARE important enough, and you ARE capable enough.

Don't ever forget that you ARE DOING IT! 

You are heading in the right direction!

Thank you for sharing your brilliant and bright lights with me. 

"Because I knew you, I have been changed for good."

I would be remiss if I failed to mention the incredibly selfless women that keep The Togetherness Project alive. It would cease to exist without them. We are wives, we are mothers (to 12 children combined, with one more due in December), we hold other jobs, and we are volunteers in our children's schools, in our churches, in our communities. The late nights, the long hours, the hard work, the tears, the stress, the absolute exhaustion of Togetherness can be VERY overwhelming at times… but it is all pale in comparison to the love, the heart, the soul, the resolve and the belief that goes into creating such a beautiful and much needed gathering place for women. Please join me in recognizing the hard work of these special women, their efforts and the great sacrifice they are making as they help others find healing and hope!
