"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Have you hit your 40s and found that they look a lot different than you expected them to when you were younger?
It's easy to get overwhelmed during this time of your life.
Your kids are getting more independent, or even moving out.
Maybe you're in a job or career you hate, but feel like it's too late in life to change it.
Your marriage may be strained, or even crumbling under years of stress.
Add to that a bunch of body and hormone changes, and you end up feeling like you have gotten completely lost in the shuffle.
You just feel so restless.
Instead of that perfect life you thought you'd have by now, you instead find yourself waking up every day with a bucket full of regrets, feeling unfulfilled in your relationship, fearful of the future, mourning the loss of your 25-year-old body, and thinking thoughts like....
‘And what now?!’
'How do I even get back in touch with who I once was, or who I want to be?’
Good news....it's time to step into your future self....
I'm 49 now, and my 40s have definitely been the toughest decade of my life.
My major mid-life crisis spanned several years, and changed the entire trajectory of my life.
It started with divorcing after 16 years of being a married stay-at-home mom.
I had to figure out how to support myself, I partied a lot, and I made LOTS of terrible decisions because I was making them from a place of pain. Many of those decisions still haunt me to this day.
I then got remarried, had another baby in my 40s, and had to see my second husband through a three year period of addiction and mental illness.
So when I tell you I can relate to mid-life struggle, I mean I can relate.
When I look back now I can see that a lot of the hard things I went through came from the fact that I had lost my way.
Had I known then what I know now there is no telling how much of that pain I could've avoided.
But thankfully God is in the business of cleaning up messes. He brought me out of the huge one I had helped to create, and brought me into a place of restoration, where I experienced more peace, joy, and fulfillment than I'd known in years.
During that time I learned how to change a lot of things I was doing that were keeping me from God's best for my life.
And they weren't just obvious mistakes.
Some were things that I thought were just 'the way I am', but He showed me that was not true, and how those things were actually keeping me in bondage in so many ways.
Christ did not give His life for us so that we could just trudge through ours miserably. He died so we could have LIFE, and have it to the FULL. (John 10:10)
I believe it is our duty to give back to Him by doing exactly that.
A midlife crisis is defined as ‘An emotional crisis of identity and self-confidence that can occur in middle age.’
Research has shown that this period of crisis usually begins in our 40s, and that our happiness bottoms out around 50, making this decade an extremely pivotal time in our lives.
How you manage this tumultuous period can truly change your entire future.
That's why I've put together a mentorship program to help you sort all of this out.
Getting help from someone who has been there is actually biblical.
Proverbs 27:17 says...
'As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.'
We often have the best of intentions to change things on our own, but fall short when we try to consistently follow through.
God meant for us to help each other, and share what we have learned in our walk with him with others.
That's why having a Godly guide or mentor to walk you through making positive changes, and gently redirect you when necessary, can make all the difference.
Here are some of the things we can work on during our time together*....
(*This program is customizable and personalized, so we can concentrate more or less on each of these key points, depending on your particular challenges.)
Having someone in your corner regularly checking on you, encouraging you, and helping you sort things out makes you far more likely to stay on track and experience real change.
This 8 week 1:1 Mentorship Program includes:
Who is this program for?
If any of that resonates with you, then I believe that you were led to this page. Let's talk, before you head down a path that you were never meant to be on.
You're not sure if it's worth it, or if you'll get out of it what you need, or if it will really help you change your life for the better.
But I do believe you found this page for a reason.
So all I ask that you do next are two things....
1) prayerfully consider if this mentorship program is for you
2) have the courage to move forward with it if you feel that God is leading you to do so
If you feel in your spirit that this is right for you, you can get started below.
Please know that since I work so closely with my clients I can only take a handful at a time, so spots are very limited.
If you have some questions as to whether or not this is the next best step for you, I would love the opportunity to talk through them with you. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Disclaimer: This program is not meant to replace therapy, marriage counseling, and the like if it is needed. I am not a certified counselor, or a medical professional. Just someone who's been there and feels called to help others through this spiritual journey. Please seek professional help first and foremost if you feel that is what you need.)
