EMPTY NEST AND RELATIONSHIP COACHING

Do you ever wish you had someone to listen, ask questions, and offer you the encouragement, wisdom, and hope you long for? Walking through a tough season of life and just need someone to sort with? Need to just run away for a few days to take a deep breath, find the focus you need, and head home refreshed?

If you feel like you need some help taking the next steps in your marriage, parenting, or transitioning into the empty nest season of life, coaching just might be what you need! Jill offers both Zoom and in-person coaching sessions as well as three-day and full week retreats.

TIMEFRAME AND INVESTMENT

Jill offers both Zoom and phone coaching in addition to on-site retreats.

Because there is value in stepping away from the everyday and focusing solely on your soul, your project, or developing your skills, Jill offers three different coaching options and pricepoints. The Long Weekends and Full Week Retreats allow her to give you her full attention for a period of time. She only works with one individual at a time for the 3 day or full week retreats.

One-on-One Coaching
Personal Retreats

Note: A percentage of Jill’s coaching fees are donated to Compassion International to rescue children from poverty and introduce them to Jesus!

The Long Weekend and Full Week retreats are part vacation, part personal getaway and part coaching. In the summer, our beautiful wrap-around porch beckons you to come sit, read, or just think and pray. In the winter, our large home with a private guest living room offers the same.

We also have a workout room and hot tub that round out the retreat setting and make it a relaxing place to slow the pace and give yourself time to think, rest, pray and be productive if you’re working on a project.

 

TRANSPORTATION AND CITY INFO

We are located in Normal, Illinois which is two hours south of Chicago, two hours north of St. Louis, and two and a half hours west of Indianapolis. Our home is in the country and surrounded by miles of corn and bean fields. However, we’re only three miles from stores and restaurants. It’s country quiet with city conveniences just down the road.

If you’re flying in, we recommend flying into BMI—the airport in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. Our home is located about 3 miles from the airport. If you prefer to fly into Chicago or St. Louis, you can also rent a car, catch a bus (Peoria Charter), or take the Amtrak train to Bloomington-Normal.  We are happy to provide transportation two and from the Bloomington airport, train, or bus station.

Bloomington-Normal is filled with Abraham Lincoln history. The David Davis Mansion is located in town and we’re only a one hour drive (or train ride) to Lincoln sites in Springfield, Illinois (Presidential Museum and Lincoln Home). Bloomington-Normal is also located along Route 66 and there is a Route 66 Museum in town. There are over 40 parks and 27 miles of blacktop walking, riding, running trails through town. These make for great outings during the week or weekend.
