Kathy Nelson

Certified Life Coach Practitioner

My heart needed time to strengthen after the tragedy of losing our only child in 2011, and God knew when my heart was ready and would show me the way to step forward. In Gods perfect timing The Narrow Road Home was brought to my attention. October 2015 I came onboard at NRH to be Spiritual and Emotional support and to come alongside and show women a God who can bring healing, comfort, hope and walk the journey with them. God is good and He is good all the time! Isaiah 40:31 They that shall wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not be faint.

I look forward to focusing my attention on bringing the community together through programs and co-ordinating projects with the Narrow Road Home. I have recently completed the Life Coaching program through the Certified Coaches Federation (CCF) which I’ve added to my past experiences in facilitating programs such as, the Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (S.T.E.P.) and being a graduate of the True Connections/Inside Out Leadership program. My true desire is to help and encourage women to be all that they can be.
