"The Greenhouse Christian Life Coaching Course was exactly what I needed to get the clarity of vision and encouragement I needed to start living out what God revealed was my purpose. It got me out of my own head from doing things alone- to participating in a community that cultivated my desire to help people live their best lives. Laura is super approachable; her personality makes you feel like you've known her for years; and she lovingly challenges you to pull the best out of you.
I recommend this course to any and everybody who wants to help any and everybody." ~Torance, Sterling & Stone Life Coach

ARE YOU READY TO GROW ON PURPOSE?
Is this something God is calling you to?
~ Are you like Deborah, and many want to go up the mountain but need you to lead them?
~ Are you like David, with your love for God spilling out into your daily life and business?
~ Are you like Esther, with others dependent upon your voice, your willingness, and God's favor?
~ Are you like John, called to pioneer and pave a path for others?
~ Are you like Mary, pouring her heart out at the feet of Jesus, revealing Who He truly is?
~ Are you like Paul, with so many teachings inside needing a purpose and a place to be poured out?
COACHING IS THE PERFECT OUTLET FOR YOU!
If you are called to guide others, you won't be alone in it!
God is with you, He goes before you, and His glory is your rear guard.

"Coaching draws you closer to the Lord because coaching tools don't bring true transformation without Him."
"I have so enjoyed The Greenhouse Course! From the beginning I was captivated by Laura's expertise, thoroughness, and patience to share all her Godly & entrusted wisdom! This course will not only help you in your personal coaching business but also within your personal/family life. " ~ Estela, Women's Business Coach

"I'm grateful to Laura for creating space for me to explore my coaching process. As I learn, grow, and evolve it's been a blessing working with her. The coaching program has been rewarding as I navigate the calling God has placed in my heart. Laura, thanks so much for your support and tools." ~ Sanalee, Life Transition Coach
Still have some niggling questions?
Answers to what's on your mind:
Do I have enough (money, energy, time, courage, knowledge, hutzpah) to do this?
You know... maybe you don't yet. We can be honest about it. But what you do have is opportunity and possibility. You do have a choice. And when you accept that, when you make a decision and commit to it, you become more powerful and peaceful in your inner life. And when you commit with your whole YES to what God calls you to, His favor is released and what you don't have on your own shows up in partnership with Him! HE alone is enough, and He is for you friend.
Is this for me if I already coach or I have a niched down practice?
This is for you if you don't feel you were ever taught the foundations of coaching or got the practice and feedback you need to feel confident. It's also for you if you are going from niche to general in your coaching or are feeling you want to bring your clients some of the revelationary tools and strategies I will be teaching you. These foundations can help anyone in any niche if their goals and results have anything to do with being human (wink, wink).
Would anyone actually want me to help them?
You'd be surprised! There are a lot of people out there in this wild world who'd love to have a helping hand and they aren't the people you know (something to accept early on: your friends and family ARE NOT your ideal clients). Your clients are people you likely haven't met yet and they will be so happy to have someone like you who is equipped and willing to walk with them.
What will my friends and family think?
- People may tell you this doesn't matter, but I know it does. You will have naysayers in everything you do, and you seriously can't make everyone happy. But the community of new friends you'll make in the private FB group (The Greenhouse Society) will champion, support, and encourage you through the conversations you'll learn to have with those most important people in your world. Trust me ~ I know you wish you had people to talk to who understand and care about your passion... and this is where you find your village!
Is it even possible God would be able to use my crazy, broken, imperfect story to help others?
Ummm... YES!!! A big ol' ABSOLUTELY! If He can use me and my crazy, He can surely use you. You will dig into your own story to find the gold threads of God's calling on your life and learn how to help your clients do the same with amazing results. Embracing faith in His purposes for you and imperfect action taking will be one of the most transformative parts of the course for you.
Is this training ICF accredited?
No, and honestly I am not sure it ever will be. This is meant to be a strong foundation for whatever kind of coaching you go on to do with a Christ~centered perspective. ICF is an accreditation org you pay that helps if you are interested in jobs that require it but you don't need it to start coaching today or work for yourself. 95% of your clients won't even know to ask about it. I do not believe it has a bearing on your ability or calling to coach, though I do value their standards of excellence.
What I DO believe in is you being equipped with excellence and supported in your growth to ensure your confidence and success. And THAT is exactly what The Greenhouse grows.
Sterling and Stone has our own Code of Ethics that our coaches are asked to align with and abide by, as well as continued education pursuits.
What is my time and personal investment?
This program is meant to give you a strong foundation so that you can move forward quickly and with confidence in both your coaching practice and your client sessions. That said, if you move through at a 10 week pace, your investment will be around 4 ~ 6 hours a week including live monthly coaching calls. This does not include coaching sessions that you schedule yourself if you are pursuing certification.
What is my financial investment?
The full training with certification as a Sterling & Stone Coach is only $997. You can also take advantage of a payment plan because I want to make this as possible as it can be for you. I know God wants to bless you in what He is calling you to and I trust Him to provide you with all you need, equipping you for every good thing.
I highly recommend that you first decide you want this, ask God if it's His will for you and your calling, and then make a commitment. Do this BEFORE you consider the money. If this is the right investment for you, trust God to make a way. I've seen Him do it again and again in my life and my client's lives. Take the desires of your heart to Him and have faith for your Father's provision!
This is an investment into your transformation and a future that will bring a huge ROI (return on investment), bring you peace and clarity, and help you co-create your story with God as an amazing coach! I have seen God provide again and again for His people when He calls them to something, so don't forget to pray and ask Him for provision to equip you for the good works you're called to. And I am praying with you too, so remember that Romans 4:21 says to be fully persuaded that what God promises is what He plans to perform!
