“Lilly has produced a much needed guide for how to use wellness coaching in congregational life–thanks for making this accessible in a format churches can really use.” Tony Stolzfus, Coach22.com
“Because of our exposure to a very humanistic approach to coaching, it was with some trepidation that we attended the Coaching Lasting Lifestyle Change workshop. However, what we found were very Biblical principles to use in our interaction with people attending our health education programs. We came away with tools for better listening and skillful questioning. It gave us a way to motivate people to reach their desired goals and allowed enhanced spiritual interaction. We would recommend this program to anyone who wants to promote whole person health for their program participants—whatever program is being utilized.” Harry Nelson, MD & Lynda Nelson, MPH, Greeneville, TN
