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 just stinks sometimes.
With the changes in life, we often experience 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! I would love to walk alongside you and encourage you to find this truth too.
I have been told that I have a way of speaking truth in love which encourages and challenges others to step up and do what will honor our Lord. I will pray with you, for you, and help you discover the hope in your heart that can only come from the Lord and walking closely with Him through the stinky times in life.
I would be honored to walk with you and help you to hear our Lord’s 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 and Leadership 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 when 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 kids-in-law. In 2014, we also became grandparents to 2 beautiful grandsons, 2015 brought a granddaughter, a grandson in 2016 and another grandson and granddaughter in 2019 with a granddaughter coming soon this fall. This Graham loves her Grands!
We live in rural southwest Kansas and enjoy the simpler things of 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 parent have both suffered from the debilitating disease of Alzheimer’s. My other passed away in 1998 after a 12-year journey with the disease. My dad was diagnosed in 2006 and passed away in June of 2018.
Caring for Dad in the later years of his disease was a major part of my recent life. Staring in January of 2014, I traveled to Independence, MO to be one of his caregivers 3 days per week until his passing. 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 in Independence, MO as well. I am blessed to have her as one of my best friends.
