Out of Control to Freedom
“I started working with Kara because even though I had multiple workbooks at my fingertips, I could not stop eating and did not know why. I felt out of control and disheartened after swinging between dieting and binging for 30 years.
Coaching went way beyond my eating habits. Kara invited Holy Spirit into each session and the inner healing work has reached deep levels within me. Now, I feel confident and happier in myself. I eat what my body needs and stop when I’m satisfied. I found deeper healing from trauma, freedom from habitual all-or-nothing thinking, and feel more connected to the love of Father God, and others.
I highly recommend working with Kara as the return is well worth the investment.”
Why join a Mini Mindful Eating Group?
From Hopeless to Encouraged
Before joining a Mini Mindful Eating group, I felt alone and hopeless in my journey towards health, but this group gave me focus and energy to pursue this difficult journey of mindful eating and treating my body well.
The accountability of checking in each Monday with the other ladies really motivated me every time I felt stressed and reached for the crackers.
When I have hard weeks or the progress feels slow, Kara’s gentle, compassionate manner makes it easier for me to bring my struggles to the group. She exudes hope and invites me to more.
The other ladies provided a safety net and together, we moved towards our goals and encouraged each other along the way. I can’t wait for the next six weeks.

From Fear to Love
Before the Mini Mindful Eating Group, when I binged, I would think nasty thoughts about myself and continue binging because of being stuck in shame. This group provided support from women who spoke life into me.
One time, someone repeated my words back to me and I was shocked at how ugly I was talking to myself. We encouraged one another and I wrote down their affirmations to practice talking to myself kinder.
For the first time, I had a focused support team with people who understood where I was at and gave me encouragement and hope when I couldn’t see it myself.
Failing in the group was different because I had people to reach out who helped remove the shame and I was able to stop binging sooner.
I felt safe, surrounded by a team that believed in me.
Last, I learned many practical tools that helped me create new habits in my life from a proven method that increased my chance of success.
Meeting on Mondays really empowered me to start of my week strong. I advise that you join a group! You will not regret it.

What people are saying about Boundaries 101
Kara’s Boundaries 101 group was a total game-changer for my marriage. For a long time, I was so frustrated and fed up with having to twist my husband’s arm to get him to do certain things to meet my needs and wants, and he was frustrated with how much I nagged and pestered him.
I thought for sure the problem was on his end, but little did I know that I was actually the one who needed to make some changes by re-establishing healthy boundaries for myself AND re-learning to respect his boundaries.
Through the boundaries group, I figured out how to get my needs met in a way that was a win-win for both of us, which ultimately gave my husband the freedom to love me better.
I’m not kidding when I say that the shift I learned through the group made a difference almost overnight.
We’re both a lot happier as a result of this group, and the skills I learned were absolutely priceless. I can’t recommend it enough.
From Fear to Love
Before Boundaries 101, I was afraid of my children’s anger and I thought it was unloving to set a boundary. Now, I have confidence that I am loving them by not allowing them to hurt me with their anger and I’m protecting our relationship.
I feel more empowered to love without the fear of losing connection. My children’s anger has reduced since I am responding with more regular boundaries and I have gain practice pushing past uncomfortable anxiety.
After the boundaries group, I understand that boundaries are the safety lines to keep relationships healthy and thriving. I highly recommend this group because shifting a small mindset can benefit our relationships dramatically and Kara helps us to identify those false beliefs in exchange for transformational truth.
You will strengthen and gain confidence in your relationships
From Powerless to Mighty
“Before Boundaries 101, the only way I understood boundaries was feeling powerless like a child waiting for others to meet my needs.
I regularly felt disrespected by my roommate who trashed the kitchen and refused to change. Through group, I made a plan and confront my roommate for the right reasons and moved forward feeling empowered.
I realized I am not longer at her mercy. Instead, I told my roommate I will move her dishes out of the way if she kept making a mess and have eventually decided I can move out.”
