What is GodStrong Life Purpose Coaching?

IS YOUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT BEGINNING TO ASK “WHAT NEXT?”

Does he (or she) understand his personality, his areas of talent and his career aptitude? Does he have a

God-centered, clearly defined path forward along with a handful of proven “go to” strategies for

overcoming external obstacles and managing his habits and relationships?


HI, I’M HOLLY DEAN

I’m a homeschool graduate, a former Human Resources and Training Program Management professional,

and a Certified Growth Coach.


If your child can answer “yes” to most the questions above, he is in a far better position than many adults you will encounter in the workforce today. Because I've been blessed to observe firsthand the transformational impact of practical personal and professional development training on working adults, I'm passionate about providing high school students with a "jump start" toward success at home and in the workplace.

TRUSTED CURRICULUM PROVIDER

A Helping Hand has been a trusted provider of State History curriculum for homeschoolers and Christian schools for over 25 years. Perhaps you have a child who has used our program in elementary or high school to “learn from the past” those valuable lessons nothing but the unfolding drama of history can teach us. Now, in our new courses, you will find the same high-quality, Biblically-sound materials to help your student “prepare for the future.”


PARENTS WELCOME!

We know you are selective about the content of your student's training. For that reason, we welcome parental observation of all classes and coaching sessions.

THEY DID IT!! Congratulations to our new GodStrong Personal and Professional Development Course Graduates! Our last day of class was no time for these hard-working students to relax, since they were were challenged to apply what they've learned throughout this one-semester course in a "mock interview" with Christy Postell from Solvo Consulting Services! Thank you, Christy for volunteering your time to prepare these students for their future careers! 

We're now enrolling for fall 2021 and spring 2022!

TESTIMONIAL

"My son is currently enrolled in GodStrong Personal and Professional Development for High School Seniors. I have enjoyed watching him blossom into a more confident student. He has had opportunities to learn more about himself to help guide him in the right direction for life. By writing essays and taking in-depth assessments, he has experienced life-changing personal growth. He has gained educational awareness and has narrowed down his college major choices. Recently, he led an in-class book discussion which was a self-esteem booster. We are very blessed to have him enrolled and know that this class will be with him for life." Beth C

Launching a GodStrong Life Purpose

Are you a college student or *recent graduate excited to launch into a missional life? Hopefully your plans are coming together smoothly -- but maybe they're not! Maybe you've come up against a setback that makes you question yourself or fear for the fulfillment of your dreams. Or perhaps you feel uncertain about how you can make a difference. Maybe you have 4200 ideas swimming around in your head, and you just need the clarity, purpose, and momentum understanding what you're good at!


Whatever your situation, I've been there, too. Yep. All of those. And I know from experience that at this exciting yet challenging point in your life, it is critical to pause and consider the way God has uniquely designed and prepared you to serve Him.

As your coach, I would be honored to help you discover your unique gifts and learn how to use them!

*Recent graduates are those who begin this program within 1 year of graduation. College and Career packages are available to other clients at the prices listed below each full product description.


 
Talent Discovery Session Students.JPG

Includes Assessment and 60-Minute Student/Parent Consultation!
NOW SCHEDULING FOR SUMMER 2021!

$49.00

IDENTIFY AND NURTURE THE TALENT IN YOUR STUDENT!

Your student probably has a basketball, soccer, baseball, or music coach --

but have you considered connecting him (or her) with a "Talent Coach"?

After all, not everyone can be a great athlete or musician -- but we can each be great at using our own

God-given talents IF we can clearly identify and apply them.

Your student is uniquely gifted and full of potential but may struggle to see himself that way.

Our Talent Discovery Session can put a sparkle in his eyes and a spring in his step as he

considers what God may have in store for his future.

Talent Discovery is not ultimately about boosting your student's self-esteem. It's about  helping him understand and appreciate how God created him to think, feel, and act. It's about teaching him to direct his effort toward areas of Talent in order to fulfil the purpose for which God designed him.

$49.00 - Your student will discover his TOP FIVE talent themes and learn how to apply them

to maximum potential.

Includes assessment and a 60 to 90-minute consultation.

TALENT DISCOVERY PLUS

$99.00 - Your recent high school graduate will discover his FULL RANGE of talent themes and learn

how to apply them to maximum potential.

Includes assessment and 90 to 120-minute consultation.
