About Me

Lori Bohning

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me."

~ Erma Bombeck

I love to learn and grow. I always have been an introvert at heart with my nose in a book, attending a workshop, taking notes, or listening to a podcast. I have had my share of struggles in life, as most of us have, and have learned that there are gifts in every battlefield. The most beautiful people I have ever met are seared with the scars of adversity. Whether we have wounds from other people, our own regrets, shame from the past, fears, anger, loneliness, uncertainty, bitterness, unforgiveness, addictions, brokenness, or a hardened heart, I know that God can turn beauty from ashes and bring you to a place of still waters where peace, love, and joy exist.

It was out of my own need and brokenness, that I met with a Christian Life Coach and coaching allowed me to see who God created me to be and my God-given potential. I was able to hear that small voice within calling me to start a widow ministry in the community. As I discovered how much I loved facilitating groups and deeply connecting with the ladies one-on-one, this transpired into becoming a Certified Lifeforming Life Coach and Certified Life-Focus Coach. I currently work with people of all ages, men or women, and anyone who has simply lost their way.

I have a B.A. in Psychology and a MEd in Education. I have lived
and worked in Spain, Costa Rica, Paraguay, and Korea. I have fifteen
years of experience in social work, and have worked with a wide variety of
issues and backgrounds.

I am also the Director of Beauty from Ashes, Hope for Widows.  My life’s journey has put a deep passion on my heart to coach those that feel alone, hurting, discouraged, and stuck.  I coach those that are in life transitions, wanting to make a change, wanting to find purpose for their life, and help them make those desires of their heart come alive.  I coach for the client to feel a sense of peace and joy.  

You are worth embarking on this transformational journey!

What will you get from coaching with me?

As a person with HSP (highly sensitive person) characteristics and the gift of mercy, I am empathetic and am able to sense the subtle aspects of a person when I am coaching them. I am able to notice things that may otherwise get missed.

As a coach, I will help you to connect deeper with God and be able to hear His voice in your life, become aware of your own map of the world, better understand how to adapt to others around you, guide you through deep healing as needed, help you to change disempowering beliefs, facilitate self-expression and authenticity, and provide an ongoing presence to support your growth.

I offer three personal coaching packages to choose from:

  • 6 month package
  • 9 month package
  • 12 month package

I look forward to embarking on this wonderful journey with you!

It's not what happens to you, but what you do with it and how you react to it that matters.
