For a majority of her life, Gayle struggled with an awareness of her identity & a true sense of self-worth. Her state of well-being was influenced by circumstances such as marriage struggles & various family issues.
Gayle was introduced to the 3 Principles of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness in October, 2011. They are responsible for her personal transformation which remains an ongoing process. The most grounded influence in her life is a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Gayle is active in a strong church body that has been a source of amazing strength, peace, and hope as well as an opportunity to use her gifts and talents to serve others locally and internationally. Even so, she discovered a deeper level of understanding. The Principles have given her an awareness of her identity that God created. They support & are supported by biblical truths.
Her training as a Transformational Life & Family Coach focused on performance & techniques to achieve results for situations of life & ultimately a sense of well-being. She came to realize that these are not the source of true well-being. Thought is the source of life’s reality, regardless of outward circumstances, & creates well-being from within. This is applicable to children, young adults, and adults.
Gayle is married, the mother of 5 children, & grandmother of 5 grandchildren.
