REAL WOMEN IN THE TRENCHES OF LIFE AND BUSINESS WITH YOU.

More than business partners, we are great friends; and more than great friends, we are sisters in Christ. Different in skill but united in heart, we each add a level of expertise and experience that makes us better together. Our commitment is that every resource we provide pushes us toward God’s, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” And let’s have lots of love, laughter and life-change on the way there!

  • We call her “Mama Liz” because she naturally nurtures everyone she’s around in the sweetest way. (But we’re pretty sure there’s a mama bear in there somewhere, so we’d recommend not messing with any of her “cubs!”).

JAMES MYERS

THE PASTOR
  • swHw team describes him as: a shepherd who can instantly transform into a walking spreadsheet, a natural teacher, goofy, and equal parts tough + tender
  • If it were possible to communicate only using GIFs and movie quotes, we’re pretty sure James would figure it out first.
  • One of James’ gifts is his ability to ask the right questions that too often go unanswered in our lives. That’s why his MLP Guide is such an effective tool for every Christ-follower. (Get yours at mylifepurposeguide.com.)
