Buddha’s Brain by Rick Hansen is “quite simply an amazing book for anybody who wants the science and research (rather than the woo-woo) behind why meditation is so incredibly effective at lowering stress, improving happiness and contentment and improving both physical and mental health” (Brownson, 2017). The Upward Spiral by Alex Korb is a book which talks about there being no one cure for depression and anxiety but a number of individual things a person can do that then exceed the whole and promotes mental health (Brownson, 2017).

Many times I think this is left out of some coaching as one may feel they may offend their client if their morals are not similar or their way of worship. God wants to give you, the coach and the client Wisdom, Understanding, and Revelation for every area of life not just on Sundays at one’s preferred place. When reading about coaching and bringing Christ into sessions, I read something that was very interesting which was a twist to how I saw coaching as a whole. “Coaches are much more like detectives than mentors, disciplers, consultants, or counselors. Detectives don’t show up with answers; they don’t teach, model, advice, or guide; detectives question. Detectives probe and dig, they search for clues, they form hypotheses, and they work hunches.” (Coaching for Christian Living, 2016) Through this process of intended question and clarification, they draw out answers. Through questioning they determine the why and how. Along with this new prospective was a verse, Proverbs 20:5 – “The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.” (2016) Great Post! Blessings! Angela

Terminology is risky, especially when you say you guarantee that things will be better. It is like we are getting ready to hear "it's 19.99, but wait...there's more!" Do you believe the bloggers guarantee? Dr. McKnight I lean heavily against it not actually working. However, maybe the program laid out will be for individuals with problem A and respond to road map B. Then anyone who syncs up with those issues covered and game plan laid out this program will work for them. It’s probably rare but I bet it still happens. 6 Re: Topic 7 DQ 1 Cassie, Journaling is a wonderful tool to help us stay on track for our goals. They can help us to maintain our achievements. Will you give each of your coaching clients a journal, or allow them to create what works for them?
