I am so glad that you are here!
My name is Rayna Neises. I am a certified life coach, speaker and blogger. I help Christians find clarity, hope & peace when life stinks. There are many reasons we might reach the place in life where it stinks, I have found often it stinks most through one of life’s tough transitions. I have written unearthingHope a blog post that shares why I blog. I hope you will hear my heart for you and all those who are needing Hope for when Life Stinks.
Life is filled with many different kinds of transitions, moving to a new community, starting a new relationship or the end of one, changing jobs, or mourning the loss of a parent. Change can be difficult. Life stinks sometimes.
With change often comes confusion, frustration and even bitterness. Working with me as your coach you can make it through this life transition, experiencing Hope and the Direction you need to find a life filled with confidence, blessings and praises in your heart.
The Lord has given me very diverse life experiences. Throughout these times of transitions, even when life was pretty stinky, I found our Lord to be faithful and I would love to walk along side you and encourage you to find this truth too. I have been told that I have a way with speaking truth in love which encourages and challenges others to step up and do what will honor our Lord.
I would be honored to walk with you and help you to hear our Lords voice and respond to Him.
I have spent 20 years in education. I have been a public, private and parochial school teacher. Not being satisfied with my first career choice (teaching), I struggled with my own disappointment; things in the classroom, no matter where that classroom was, were not as I thought it would be. As a result I set out to find a better fit for me. I joined a for profit model to impact families in education which I loved and eventually I transitioned into a completely different world by becoming a small business owner of an Educational Services franchise.
After marrying my farmer, I moved and changed professions again becoming a Certified Professional Christian Life Coach. My experience with different seasons in life and the deep desire to find where God had me to serve in each season prepared me to walk with you and help you move through this life transition… Finding Clarity, Hope, & Peace even if life stinks!
I am married to a wonderful man named Ron who totally changed my world. I lovingly call him, “farmer”. With my farmer, came four wonderful children and shortly after that 3 kid-in-laws. In 2014 we also became grandparents to 2 beautiful grandsons, 2015 brought a granddaughter and we are expecting another grandson in 2016. This Graham loves her Grands!
We live in rural southeast Kansas and enjoy the simpler things in life. I am a creative soul who loves to worship the Lord, read, sew, embroidery, paint and craft.
I am also a daughter and sister. My parents have both suffered from the debilitating disease of Alzheimer’s. My mother passed away in 1998 after a 12 year battle with the disease. My dad was diagnosed in 2006. He is still living at home but requires 24 hour care. As of January of 2014 I have been traveling to Independence, MO to be one of his care givers 3 days per week. It is a blessing to be able to spend this time with him even as he is not completely himself. My sister and her family live very close to my dad and I am blessed to have her as one of my best friends as well.
