Lost in Transition

Happy fall and thanks for putting up with my silence over the past few months. Lost in Transition is more than a catchy title for this post; it's been a reality of life. Lately, I've been feeling like the prophet's admonishment to God's people is for me:

Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.
— Jeremiah 6:16

Often times, my default response during a prolonged transition is to act, to do something. Ironically, the productive me is what I'm desperate to restore on the heels of transition, but God has His own timetable. Notice the sequence of the action verbs in the above verse: stand, look, ask - all components of waiting. The walking comes last, and the soul finds rest because we meet God on His terms and, not our own.

There has been some action on my part, but not the usual stuff. In September I was in Switzerland providing life coaching for men working internationally. During that time, I began to compile and publish my writings on the theme of transition. 
The result is a short read titled Transition Companion, now available on Amazon in both kindle and print formats.
Check out Transition Companion here.

For two days this week - Wednesday and Thursday - I'm offering it at a promotional price of 99 cents.

Help them get unstuck and move forward in the New Year. Why not gift a coaching package to a friend or loved one this Christmas? Just send us an email and we can give you all the details to make it happen.

Lastly, I would love to hear from some of you concerning felt needs related to this blog and other coaching resources we could potentially offer in the future. Thanks for standing by us through our own transition and the beginnings of Encompass Life Coaching.
