connecting with god
As unfathomable as it is, the God of all creation wants to CONNECT with us- to have a personal relationship with us. We want to provide opportunities for coaches’ wives to grow in this truth through studying God's Word. Through the highs and lows of the sports seasons, it's not always possible to meet together in person with other wives on a weekly basis, but with the leadership of seasoned coaches' wives through the tools of apps, blogs, and online groups, we can grow daily in God's word and meet as often as possible with other coaches' wives in our local areas. Resources alone will never replace personal relationships, but in combining these aspects, we as coaches' wives can grow in truth daily- no matter what our days might hold!

A Message for you from Krista...
Dearest Coaches Wives,
What you are doing matters! It matters to your husband. It matters to the next generation, and it matters to those around you. But most especially, it matters to Jesus.
The Scriptures remind us, "For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for His name in serving the saints, as you still do." (Hebrews 6:10) Our Heavenly Father sees you! He knows the sacrifices you are making as a coach's wife and a mom.
Oh, sweet Sisters, I know from experience that sometimes it's difficult, even draining. So, how can we stay joyful and faithful to God's assignment for this season? How can we live out our faith in the practical or the mundane or the ordinary moments of everyday life? How can we overflow with joy and peace and wisdom? And how can we encourage ourselves or even others in the overwhelming moments of life? By spending time with Jesus.
If we learn to exchange whispers with God before our world with all its crazy demands begins to shout commands, our life and ministry will be so much more effective. Our home and our husband will be happier (because we will be happier). Our legacy of faith will bring glory to God and leave a much more profound imprint on others.
