Remarkable Coach Interview
My name is Michelle Mullins, also known as the CONNECTION COACH ~ I help women connect who they are in Christ with what they do in life!
My greatest joy is my family. I am a caring person, listen well, have encouraging words to share and you can tell me anything in confidence. I am ready to lend my ear, to listen with my heart and extend the amazing grace and incredible joy and hope I found in the Lord.My faith and my family are top priorities in my life. I do everything I can to enjoy my family, to encourage them, to love and nurture them. I found true love with my husband, a treasure that I cherish and I am grateful for. Other than Jesus, my husband is my hero! My two sons are my heart with legs. I love them BOTH the most and love each of them individually. I find great joy in seeing them grow into such wonderful men. My family is my greatest passion. Being with them is what I care about most and what I build my life around and one of the main reasons I choose to work remotely.
I also enjoy my friendships and continually carry the thought, “be a friend that I want to have,” and do my best to live that out. I don’t do that perfectly, but perfection is not the goal. I love deeply and take my commitments seriously. I have an overall positive attitude and can be silly and playful at times. I enjoy the thrill and challenge of a new idea and I am always up to something. I learned that from my mom, who I also love dearly. Sometimes the thrill and challenge is found in ministry, work, a home project, a good book, or a TV series. Many things capture my attention.
I find my greatest adventure in my personal relationship with the Lord, digging in the scriptures and spending quality time with Him in prayer. I can spend countless hours reading the Bible. I enjoy learning about God’s great love story, talking, and listening to the Lord and I cannot wait to share with others. One of my favorite scriptures is Mark 6:31. Come with me by yourselves to some quiet place and rest. My favorite song to listen to is Alan Jackson singing “In the Garden”.
I live with the challenge of dyslexia and remain anchored to who I am in Christ to find confidence to express things in writing. I write exactly as I speak. You will find errors in my writing but that is part of my unique awesomeness. I struggle with time management. I wish I had the ability to spend more time with everyone but that isn’t reality.
I find busyness disconnects me from my ability to listen, to encourage and keep my commitments. If taken to the extreme, I can become apathetic; therefore, I keep my ears open and in prayer. I listen for the silent signals in my life and adjust accordingly to stay in a healthy place. I’ve learned the benefit of healthy boundaries and how to say no. Again, perfection is not the goal. Consistently surrendering my weakness to the Lord is the goal. I find God’s mercy and strength in my weakness and he has given me the opportunity to come alongside others who share in this struggle. I am a lady who is living a life of loving God, my family, and my friends. I am living out my purpose by simply being who God created me to be. It doesn't matter WHAT hat I wear, it matters WHO I am in Christ and HOW I live my life. If I want to leave this legacy, I must live this legacy.
