Dr. Jo gave me a helpful tip today regarding hand sanitizer. Now that most of us at sheltering in place at home, we can SAVE our sanitizer for the few times we go out. She said that washing properly (20 seconds, vigorously, up arms and all over, with warm soap) is sufficient when at home….

In this episode, Emma Tarence shares how life coaching has helped bring about dramatic personal change and growth in her life.
The old Emma....
Emma describes herself before she made a radical change. She shares how she lacked motivation, failed to set goals, and settled for mediocrity. She gives an honest picture of what she felt inside and how she lived her life~and it wasn't working for her.
The new Emma.....
Emma Tarence is a new girl compared to the one we all knew just a year ago. Her friends, parents, siblings, and extended family can attest to the fact that there is a "new Emma" that is drastically different than the one one. Trust me, if I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it. But my daughter has amazed and inspired ALL of us who know her.
Life coaching was a huge factor in Emma's growth.
Emma began working with a life coach about a year ago, and this is the genesis of what turned out to be an amazing transformation. Alexis Girvan worked with Emma on a regular basis to help her implement practices and habits that have shaped Emma into the "new girl" she is today.
This powerful quote we've heard myriad times from our pastor, Chris Hodges, is very true in Emma's life. In the podcast, Emma shares how her friends helped encourage, inspire, and influence her for the better. She shares how they "spur one another on" to be better and do better.
Daily rituals make a difference.
Whereas the "old Emma" would stay up late and sleep late, the new Emma is drastically different. She attributes a schedule, routine, and order to making her more productive, energetic, and satisfied. Her journaling, morning routine, and habit tracking have made a huge difference in her life.
First things first.
Emma begins her mornings with the most important things. She dedicates 5 minutes to each of the following: prayer, worship, and bible reading. She says this has made a huge difference in her heart, attitude, and gratitude.
Emma shows how dramatic change is possible.
We all have room to grow, change, and improve ourselves. Emma's turnaround story is inspiring in that it shows how anyone can make the decision to turn around, and it can happen quickly. If we put our minds to it, we can become a better version of ourselves any time we choose. Emma has inspired me, and I am so thankful to be her mom.
