ABOUT

ME

Dana Wade is an ordained pastor in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. She is also a Certified Professional, Life, and Relationship Coach.

 

She loves helping people grow personally, spiritually and relationally.

"Stay in your process-God is always shaping you into the image of his Son Jesus."

She loves to coach her clients from a whole person approach, as embodied souls. She has learned that the real work of transformation begins once you make the decision to follow Jesus.

 

She made that decision years ago and has learned the true love of God through the redemption story of Jesus Christ.

 

"It seemed like I took the long road at times, but God knew what I needed, and I wouldn't trade my process for anything.

She takes her clients through a course that is tailor made just for them.

"Your failures may challenge you but they can either shape you, break you, or make you better-the choice is yours."

She also loves to equip people to walk the cross shaped life. She loves her relationship with Holy Spirit and she would love the opportunity to help you understand how to walk with Him as well. Whether you want to call it coaching or mentoring, there must be these types of relationships in every persons life. We weren't made to do life alone. We were made for relationships and community. And we will at some point all need certain people in our lives to figure things out. They will help you see yourself correctly or a situation more clearly; you can't know yourself by yourself. 

 

Little by little is her motto.

 

She keeps her clients focused on change as she takes them on a journey of thinking differently about themselves, others and God. 

 

She believes that time is something none of us have the luxury of wasting, so this is an important part of your journey with her.

 

"Nothing replaces, time and process in your life.  Short cuts only cut YOU short." 
 

Many are craving peace and rest and she will take you on a journey to experience it.

"Freedom starts with a single step...."

 

and that step requires change, risk and focus.
