Is The Significant Woman life-coaching course just like other Bible study courses?

While this course presents bibically based principles, its focus is to equip women to live from a biblical perspective in all areas of their lives. The Significant Woman Team spent years of research and development, tapping the expertise of many women from Christian ministries around the world to produce the best possible discipleship course.

Can’t I just work through the course by myself?

The Significant Woman course is designed as a life-coaching resource which is oriented toward group discovery and interaction. Participants in the Life-Coaching Group encourage one another, pray and support one another, search the Scriptures together, help each other implement the Life-Coaching Tools and activities, and rejoice together as each woman grows in her relationship with God.  Although we encourage you to join a group, you may find a friend to go through the course with you so that you can enjoy the benefit of having your own personal peer coach.

What is life coaching?

Life Coaching helps people who want to improve their lives in specific ways, such as changing careers, finding a healthy relationship, taking their business to a new level, losing weight or deepening their self-understanding. It also deals with stress management as well as time management, goal setting and other key areas of change to help people lead more balanced lives that better reflect their personal values and priorities.

The Significant Woman life-coaching course combines life-coaching methods and biblically based principles. This unique curriculum, developed by women, is designed exclusively for women. In The Significant Woman Course, the Holy Spirit, the members of your Life-Coaching Group, and your Peer Coach are your personal life coaches.

What is peer coaching?

Peer Coaching represents the personal and relational side of The Significant Woman course. Each participant has her own Peer Coach from within her Life-Coaching Group.

Her Peer Coach nurtures and guides her spiritual development, helping her see obstacles she may not realize, and providing unbiased feedback regarding areas that could be strengthened. Her Peer Coach is on the same journey and is a supportive and caring friend for her as she works her way through the life principles in this course.

What makes the significant woman discipleship course so distinctive?

The Significant Woman resource is the only one of its kind to combine life coaching and a biblically based curriculum that equips women with principles for living a life of purpose and meaning. It provides the benefit of both a group environment and a peer-coaching relationship.
