What others are saying...
"Christian coaching was a new experience for me, and I didn’t know what to expect. Aline was very professional and made me feel at ease. While working with Aline, I can’t really explain it, but the safe and connected space she created for us was life changing for me. I am a different person after working with Aline. The type of questions she asked were pointed,gentle yet thought-provoking. She allowed her spirit to connect with mine and every time she saw me cry, I could see the love for me she has in her eyes. The love that Christ gives us in order to love one another, and she has definitely been gifted with that compassionate heart. From my experience I learned that I have the power to unlock the change that God wanted to desperately initiate in me, and Aline provided the key to allow the Holy Spirit to do work in me. I am forever grateful for my experience with her and I recommend her to anyone who wants to feel Christ’s love and someone ready to make a change and allow the Holy Spirit to work through Aline in order to achieve that. God bless Aline and her ministry and God bless those of you ready to take the journey with her!"
