Dana Wade is a 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 as embodied souls. She has learned that the real work of transformation begins once you make the decision to follow Jesus.


She, like many of us, made that decision and learned the true love of God through the redemption story of Jesus Christ.


"I feel 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 handle the tough challenges of life-whether that is in the work place, or at home or in relationships. Sometimes you just need a person to help you see yourself correctly or a situation; you can't know yourself by yourself and life coaches are equipped to help you see more clearly.


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. 

  • Successes and failures are great teachers

  • Get back up when you fall-a righteous man may fall seven times- but he gets back up

  • Life with God is a journey – don’t get stuck in one season.

  • Forgive 

  • When God transitions you to a new season-your connections must change

  • God takes us through processes, resets and times of evolving with him-know your season

  • Repentance isn’t a one time thing

  • Times of solitude and silence are necessary to hear from God and nothing replaces it

  • Prayer shapes you and forms you into the image of Christ; it is your life force, wind and breath

  • Fasting is a divine opportunity to meet with God

  • Praise is a weapon that works for you

  • Worshipers are what God desires

  • Spend more time with Jesus than on social media

  • You have an adversary and it's not people 

  • Lighten up and don’t be so hard on yourself

  • You can't know yourself by yourself

  • You must develop your gifts to use them

  • Never stop learning

  • Serve others

  • Spend time communing with God, it is time never wasted

  • Take time to sing, dance and be silly-it does a body good

  • Study God’s Word - and allow it to read you

  • Coaches/Mentors/Teachers-all are necessary - I have needed them all in one season or another

  • Learn the value of worshiping God - we will be doing it forever

  • I’m not what I do



I’ve been married 32 years to a remarkable Godly man. Mark is my best friend and the love of my life!

We have two wonderful adult sons, Michael and Eric, whom we love very much. They are our greatest achievements and our most valued treasures, and we are so very proud of them! In January of 2020 we gained a daughter as well, as our oldest son Michael  married his love, Danielle. We've now gained not only a wonderful new daughter, but also two beautiful grandchildren in Hannah and Elijah.

I’m the daughter of a wonderful Godly mother and proud sister to three incredible brothers. Tim & Steve are such tremendous blessings in my life, and so was our brother Bobby, who has now entered his eternal reward in glory. I have several close covenant sisters who make my life so full and rich and who I love and value so very much.

I’ve had a wonderful life so far, and I’m looking forward to all God has next for me and my family.
