Welcome to the Best of your Life
Hi there! I’m Maria, and like many of you, I am living this life as a single parent. Many of us might agree that single parenting was not part of our life plan! However, I refuse to allow my “status” of being a single parent to hold me back and stop me from living my dreams. Do not let it hold you back, either.
Some years ago, everything I knew my life to be blew up and shattered into a million little pieces. With God’s help I’ve picked them up one at a time. Along the path of rebuilding I developed a burning desire to help others that are walking this same path of divorce, legal battles and single parenting. You want to hear some good news? You and me, though we can’t choose what is done TO us, we can choose HOW we respond to each and every trial and difficulty.
This desire to help others has developed into a dynamic coaching business where I walk women through the emotional, financial and legal aspects of divorce, child custody or beginning again as a single mom. Here is the philosophy and guiding principles that surround my coaching business:
My Guiding Values
1. Adversity can be our greatest testimony.
No matter what challenges we face (being single again, being cheated on, being abused or dragged into court yet again) I believe that God is in the business of taking a person’s brokenness and using it to grow us and make beauty from ashes. I help my clients understand that joy will come again.
2. Nothing is Impossible.
We do not stretch and grow unless we get out of our comfort zone. Facing tragedy forces us to ask for help, decide what we will fight for and keep striving for excellence in all that we do. We must believe that our goals and dreams in life are possible no matter the struggle to achieve them.
3. I will decide how I live my life. Nobody else.
We are our own best advocates. Not our parents, an attorney or our friends. There is a time to mend and then there comes a time for action.
I help single moms plan and prepare for this new life by focusing on these three key areas:
- LEGAL: I help you build a strategic plan for divorce and child custody. I help you understand the legal process and terms that will help you gain both knowledge and confidence.
- FINANCIAL: I help you with basic financial management. I help you build a personalized plan for your family to attain financial security.
- EMOTIONAL: I help you BELIEVE in yourself again! We’ve had enough voices tell us what we’re not. I help you develop routines and systems to help you heal from the past and look forward to the future with a renewed mindset.
I offer a great deal of free content on this site via the blog and social media pages to bring you hope, help and healing. Should you like additional information on my coaching services, head on over here to learn more.
Oh, a little about me. I’m a (seriously!) joyful single mom to two little ones. I have a heart as big as the ocean not only for my children but for other moms and children out there suffering. My professional training is in the communications, technology and consulting fields. I also have attained a considerable amount of knowledge in family law and am currently seeking my certification as a paralegal and certified life coach.
Let’s use these circumstances to live our best lives ever!
