“Kate is a breath of fresh air! I have been continually blessed and encouraged by this woman since I first met her in 2014. Her heart beats with the love of God! She has the depth, passion, and commitment to facilitate breakthrough experiences that release the women she coaches into their full joy and calling. Kate combines a lifetime of nurturing her ability to hear from the Spirit with an impressive list of trainings that allow her to bring professional excellence to her clients along with the discerning voice of follower of Christ. Though I trained her to become a Coach, Kate has been a spiritual Mother to me and a champion of my journey with Jesus. I thank God for allowing us to connect, and I look forward to partnering with this powerful warrior woman in the future!"
“I had come to a point in my life where I lacked focus , drive and clarity, i felt like i was trudging through daily tasks but it did not mean anything, i was spinning my wheels in mud so to speak. My coaching with Kate, I was able to see beyond, began feeding my spirit and soul on what God says about me, reminding me of who I am in Him. Through coaching my purpose through self-discovery was revealed and it helped me focus and start living life with intention again. As a business owner constantly moving in a million directions, Kate helped me channel my gifts and talents in a more productive manner and on a path of levelheadedness, calm and faith while I continue His plan for my life.”
“I have had a year full of transformation. A mile marker for me was my life coaching sessions with Kate. They truly taught me how to bring joy, love and hope back into my life by charging my spiritual life with thoughtful guidance. Her keen observation and hands on measures were right on. Kate is a friend, teacher and an angel on earth...her gifts are boundless because she is guided by our Savior. She can help change your life too.”
“My mother gave me the gift of life coaching sessions with Kate... what a true gift that was! My sessions with Kate were an amazing experience. Kate has a way of touching your soul and helping you speak from the heart. As a young woman, newly married and just starting a family there are many situations and questions I had about how to handle different obstacles life through my way and about life in general. Kate helped me invite God into our sessions, made me feel at peace, and gave me wonderful guidance. I would leave every session feeling refreshed and most of all blessed from the things I was learning through God and my experience with Kate. She is truly amazing and I would recommend her to anyone!”
"My life coaching was beyond words .I was really at a place no longer had dreams that I had before. The truth was I was so disheartned that I did not even care if I had a dream or purpose. I was so thankful that after a few weeks of life coaching I was able to get" unstuck" and work through some of the reasons why I had no vision. Through Kate"s coaching I have now connected with reconnected with Gods purpose for my life. It's as if I am getting a fresh start. Even since my last coaching session, I have been able to continually and expectantly hear from God and have that expectant child-like nature in my life. I feel empowered to believe and trust in Gods goodness for my life. My husband and others have noticed the change also.Thank you Kate for this life coaching experience! God Bless you!”
“Working with Kate McGovern is a breath of fresh air. She has one of the kindest and most giving hearts I have ever experienced. Love, compassion and concern simply illuminates from her words . As a life coach she is a life-giver to places of the soul that have been bruised and broken. I love her ability to move from practical coaching on how to launch a business to inner healing that transforms a soul. She has a inner eye to see where the hurt resides and an inner love to give that dissolves a wound. Kate is a great life coach and I am a better person because I have been coached by her.”
“I had Kate coach me during a time when I was struggling with having a deeper relationship with the Lord . Kate is one of the most heartfelt Christian woman I have ever met. Her love for the Lord and her desire to see others live the life God has planned is why she is such an effective coach. Through the powerful questions Kate asked, I came to know the Holy Spirit in a new light . She encouraged me throughout the week and made sure I was following through on my commitments.
Today , my relationship with Christ is more solid than its ever been. My understanding of what it means to be obedient to the Lord has reached a new level. If you are looking for a coach that is committed to seeing you be the best you can be, I highly recommend Kate.”
“Hi there, It was a point in my life where I could see where I wanted to be, but did not quite know the steps to take next. I felt discouraged and overwhelmed. I slowly just stopped trying. Kate was a huge help, She acted as a friend and a guide, asking questions and allowing me to talk through what I was seeing and feeling. I began to break down the bigger decisions into smaller steps each week which gave me courage and hope to take bigger steps the next week.
After just six weeks , I was able to put together a manageable plan and take steps towards my career goals. I felt empowered to continue applying the techniques I learned during my weekly coaching sessions to continue my momentum. I am so excited, for what is to come!”
“After raising a family and entering retirement I had no idea what my next step would be. I tried golf lessons, floral decorating, knitting and crocheting.
None of the things seemed to fill the void in my life. This went on for YEARS!
From the outside looking in, it appeared that I had it all together. Handsome, attentive, loving husband. Beautiful successful daughter. All the material things that anyone woman could ask for. I shopped constantly, sometimes unknowingly purchasing the same thing twice. You see I wasn’t buying out of need. I was trying to satisfy a need.
My life was lacking a meaningful purpose
By the grace of God, I met Kate McGovern. I will be forever grateful to Kate McGovern for helping me to discover my purpose.
After discovering my purpose, Kate helped me create a plan and to put that plan into action.
I now spend one morning a week hosting a Christian Fellowship Community Group at a local Senior Independent Living Community and I have never been happier.
Thank you for your prayers, guidance, encouragement and the ability to help me to see my life the way God sees me.”
“When I began this process, I was unsure of what to expect yet I knew I needed assistance in confirming, identifying and breaking fear including all of the things that stemmed from it off of my life. It crippled my confidence and my ability to fully live out my purpose. For 1 hour a week, I've been healed and blessed by Kate's gift.
Working with her was truly a God ordained appointment, she really follows the heart of the Father in each session. I felt so confident about my decision to work with her after our very first conversation. She is patience, kind and best of all she has great listening skills. She challenged me to really think and deeply ponder my thoughts and emotions in a way that was so liberating. I experienced some major breakthroughs while working with her. I feel empowered and confident to continue walking out my destiny in Christ.
Thank you so much Kate for leading with the heart of the Father and yielding with so much grace. I am grateful that our paths have crossed. Many, many blessings to you.”
“I was at a very low spot in my life, hurt and lost. I was praying and I felt God leading me to start coaching with Kate.
I was pretty nervous the first day. But from the very first day, she helped me see some pretty big things in my life through powerful questions that were holding me captive. It Helped me to lay down the hurt and bitterness.
I am understanding that I am the beloved daughter of the almighty God. That He is pleased with me, and He is all that matters.
I would encourage anyone to coach with Kate. It was the best decision, the most positive decision I have made for a long time.”
“Save your marriage before it starts was one of the best investments and decisions we made for our relationship. It helped us learn how we each act, respond, and communicate in everyday life. We have both fallen even more in love with each other after doing the symbis. We are so thankful God brought Kate into our lives. She is an amazing coach who is always kind, encouraging, and understanding. We would highly recommend this to anyone who is dating, engaged, & married.”
“Kate McGovern’s heart is for women to be released into their God given destiny. I know this because when I spend time with Kate I am transformed. Her insight, experience and direction has given me confidence to keep moving forward.”
“Coaching with Kate was perfect timing in my life, her ability to focus on my strengths such as Christ's work in me.
Coming out of difficult time , she has kept my driving force of faith front and center. She has helped me recognize my vision and purpose. Every session has been a "mind shift" of taking off the old thinking and replacing it with perspectives of hope. Each session I come out reframing each thought with new ways of thinking. Kate uses powerful,questions for me to think out of the box.
Honestly, I wonder how she can get me from A to B so easily. Her skill to reframe, encourage and support has caused great healing and growth. I feel totally supported in my goals and vision for the future.
Kate and her love for Jesus and her ability as a coach to be led by the Holy Spirit has opened my heart and eyes to opportunities and tools and hope for future things. I am extremely thankful to God how he used Kate in my life. She has helped me to let go and move forward and let lessons become a bridge to my future.
I truly believe Kate McGovern is a gifted coach.”
“I stayed at home to raise my children for 12 years and returned to Corporate America. There were struggles to re-entering the work force and I was at point in my life that I didn’t know who I was and what direction to go. I had lost my identity. I always kept a strong relationship with God, and prayed about who am I? What are my strengths and purpose in life? Then I found Kate through a friend. I went out to her website and listened to videos of testimony and cried and felt that a strong sense that God was directing to her.
Through the coaching with Kate, she provided more joy, peace and confidence as to who am I! Today, I feel stronger and confident and have a purpose and direction in my life. Kate is a compassionate, caring and patient Christian woman! She is truly a gift from God! I would highly recommend Kate. She is truly amazing! "
“I highly recommend Kate McGovern as a Life coach! I've been in the Ministry for over thirty five years and of those, I Pastored a Church fifteen years. I sensed there was a new assignment and purpose for my ministry but did not know how to make the transition. I felt STUCK and had lost my confidence and courage to step out to begin this NEW journey. It was a Divine appointment that I was introduced to Kate. She coached, encouraged and prayed me through. In just three months I started flowing in my gifts again and my FIRE for Ministry is back! Thanks Kate!"
"I sought Kate out as a life coach because I felt stuck in my life. I had been apprehended by fear and knew I needed a God-fearing woman to help me break free from it. My life as a stay-at-home mom came to an abrupt halt and I found myself becoming a single mom trying to juggle raising my children while working to provide for our household. Kate helped me to see that I was fully equipped in the Lord to be more than a conqueror. She worked with me in setting goals for my family and myself. The best part of it is that she truly "coached" me along the journey. She did not just hand me the rules and tell me to follow them, she sat down and asked me the hard questions. In doing so it allowed me to answer them and come up with the solutions. She gave me tools to use not just for the time I spent with her, but for a lifetime. I am forever thankful for the time I had with her."
"I have enjoyed our times together so much. I hated to see them completed.
Your coaching has opened my eyes, my heart and my spirit to God’s destiny and plan for my life. I feel more confident in the gifts He has graced me with.
I’m walking in a new freedom from that ugly four-letter word “Fear” that kept me paralyzed in several areas of my life - finances, family, my health, etc. Fear is a lie from the enemy, Satan. I learned I don’t have to fear. God is always enough! And I am always enough in Jesus Christ!
I have been procrastinating with many big projects, feeling totally overwhelmed. “This job is too big for me! I can’t do it by myself! I’ll never get it accomplished!” Those emotions have been replaced with a new confidence. By tearing the projects into bite-sized pieces - they are capable of completion, one step at a time.
In spite of my age I feel a new sense of who I am in God’s eyes, and what He yet desires for me to be and accomplish for His glory. I am a beloved daughter of the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, God Almighty! I walk in His favor every day!
Thank you Kate! You’ve been fantastic in helping me search out the truth of who I am in Christ, learning to walk in my destiny and purpose, and how to keep growing in greater intimacy with Jesus.
My heart is overflowing with the joy of the Lord tonight as I write this letter. I’m so excited and happy for the new life that has begun in me.
Blessings as you continue to bring others into the fullness of who they were designed to be.
"My initial phone call to Kate was the start of me getting “back in my lane!” When I was done with my 3 month coaching with her, she read back to me some of the things I had told her I was dealing with. One of those was I said I felt like I was ping ponging everywhere. Through a series of self discovery with the help of Kate’s coaching I was able to catch the ball and get back in my lane! Out of that I was able to identify my who and allow myself to be. As a result, I’m on a journey of helping other’s uncover and cultivate their who so they can be! Thank you Kate for listening and pulling out of me what was already there!"
"When a friend asked me if I had ever thought about life coaching with Kate my answer was no and my thoughts were ‘I don’t need that’, but I told her I would think/pray about it. I hadn’t even had time to do that when the Holy Spirit said this was the next step in my journey. I got home and I contacted her immediately and began my journey with her.
I had no idea why I was going all I knew was the Lord had directed me to go. At our first meeting when she asked what I wanted from our time together I truly did not know. I soon realized I was looking for what my God given purpose in life was. I was stuck in my same old routine and patterns waiting for God to show me. I knew I wanted more of Him, I wanted to go deeper, and I was waiting for that to happen. Notice the term ‘waiting’, what I didn’t realize was I needed to do my part, and that was MOVE.
The Lord did more in 3 months through the power of the Holy Spirit working through Kate than I have been able to accomplish on my own in 24 years since becoming a Christian. My purpose has been revealed and now I am MOVING forward in confidence to accomplish all that God has for me and all that He wants me to do. Not what ‘Lisa’ wants, but what He wants as I listen moment by moment to the Holy Spirit’s promptings.
Kate’s love for the Lord shines in all she does!! If you are contemplating even for a moment if she would be the right coach for you, I say yes she is! "
"A Coaching Journey of Three Months...
When I approached Kate, I was hurting deeply from rejection from my son, which left a deep hole in my heart. I learned of things I never realized had impacted him and through Kate’s guidance, recognized in a unique and real way, the spiritual battle on our lives and how to move forward towards a new relationship with him. Battling aspects of my relationship with my husband was also where God wanted me, and through Kate’s encouragement and practical insight, am moving forward in loving him to grow us both in our relationship together. I am greatly encouraged by the hope I have, and how Kate could see the real issues and help me draw conclusions to propel me to a future of joy and laughter over what seemed like insurmountable issues.
I know in a much greater way, that God’s love is real. My eyes have been opened to the bigger picture. His gentle but wonderful work in my life, is allowing the frustrations in my life to reveal my needed boundaries and co-create new ones with my husband. This is still a work in progress, but one that excites me, because of going to higher ground in removing layers of defensiveness and openness to God’s work in my life, requiring "blood bought, spirit wrought" joyful effort.
There have been some victories in my relationship with my son. I know without a doubt that we are on a good path towards restoration. God is faithful and Kate’s incredible insight and skill in communication directed me straight towards the goal God has for me. I am so grateful for the work we have done these 9 weeks. God’s faithfulness is real in a new and wonderful way, and I am left with a challenge that I know will end in a life of directed purpose and greater joy."
"I had been sensing the Holy Spirit’s tugging for months. “Come away with Me”, He kept whispering in my ear. “Come away with Me. Come away with Me.” Over and over I’d hear it. “Yes!”, was my heart’s cry. “Yes!” I so desperately longed to respond to the call to “come away” and spend time with my Father. I knew I NEEDED to respond to His call. So many things depended on it, but How? How do I make it happen? Where is the time in my crazy life/schedule to fit it in? I felt like my life was a bunch of spinning tops and it was all I could do to keep up with them and keep them all spinning. How was I going to add one more top to the mix? I knew if I could just get that one top spinning it would impact all the others and the effort to keep them all going would be less as I partnered up with the one who holds my whole world in His hand. I still just couldn’t see how to make it happen. As much as it was my heart’s desire, as much as I knew I needed to, as much as I knew there would be great benefits from it, still months went by and still Holy Spirit called me. Pastoral ministry, small children & a teenager at home, a husband, a household to run and all the responsibilities that go along with each and my own expectations of myself had me so consumed, I couldn’t see my way through it all to carve out the time I so desperately needed.
So, when the opportunity came to be a part of Real Life Restores Life Coaching with Kate McGovern, I jumped at the chance. I knew I needed a fresh perspective. Sometimes when you are in the middle of it, you just can’t see your way out and you need an objective perspective to help you find the way out. That’s what Kate did for me. She helped me make sense of my mess. She helped me sort out my crazy schedule and find pockets of time where I could steel away with my Father. She encouraged me to create a space, a literal space in my house where I could go to spend time with the Lord. Part of that time was sitting at my keyboard worshipping. This was a big part of it! So, I did. I used a desk I had gotten on clearance at Target that I was planning on using in another place in my house, but it didn’t end up being the right size. It was meant for me! He He! I love how God works! I set up my keyboard and set myself to follow through.
I can’t tell you how glad I am! I have had some of the most intimate times away with my Father down in my basement in the little space I carved out for myself. It’s amazing what happens when we are obedient! I am thankful for Kate. I’m thankful for her insight and wisdom. I’m thankful that she is lead by the Holy Spirit and is able discern exactly what I needed to hear each time we met. It was a wonderful conversation as she pressed me to think and process out where I was, where I wanted to be and how I was going to get there. Simply lifechanging!"
"If you want to discover your God-given design, live out your God-implanted purpose, and passionately pursue your God-sized dream, get to know Kate McGovern. Kate is a dynamic speaker, a gifted listener, a trained coach, and a world-class encourager. When you are ready to take your life and/or ministry to the level, call Kate. You’ll be glad you did."
"I am mother of four, a grandmother and I am a successful business owner where I lead others in a direct sales company for the past 17 years. My husband and I recently became true empty-nesters as our last child was married and everyone is now out of college and on their own. When I reached out to Kate I didn’t even realize the amount of training she had, I contacted her based on her years of integrity, and the example that I saw in her life as a Christian, wife, mother, grandmother and professional. That respect guided me to start a program that fit what I was looking for and to really start on a journey to redefine my purpose. After going through a 12 week process coached by Kate my Faith has grown, my perspective has been redefined as well as my purpose. I feel rejuvenated, focused and equipped to move forward into this new journey. I highly recommend Kate McGovern as a life coach, mentor, and public speaker. I am also a mentor for a Mops Ministry(mothers of preschoolers) and Kate recently came in to do a presentation and everyone loved it! We have had many speakers but I have never seen the 40+ young mothers interact and learned so much in such a short amount of time. I look forward to utilizing other parts of Kate McGovern‘s program and highly recommend referring her to anyone."
"After the heartache and devastation of a failed marriage for both of us, Kate McGovern was recommended to come alongside us and walk us through the SYMBIS assessment (Save Your Marriage Before It Starts). Both of us have a heart for marriage and felt God very obviously placing us together but were at times overwhelmed at the thought of opening up again to marriage and all the “what ifs” that now plagued every thought. The SYMBIS test was amazing, complete and oh-so valuable! Kate was gentle yet bold as she helped us dig into the heart of the issues that lay behind our fears. She gave some valuable insight and encouragement as she began to understand our story. Kate has a heart for the Lord and it is obvious that she is gifted in wisdom, prayer and compassion. This was a powerful experience and we recommend the SYMBIS assessment and coaching with Kate to all those we talk with, even our already married friends! This will help you understand one another better and deepen your love for one another if you let it."
"When you start out on a journey you think its all about taking in experiences to fulfill yourself. But its not. The greatest experience is changing someones life. And once you come to that realization , it becomes your foundation, the ace in your pocket, who you are.... When you see the world through the lens of others, that's when you find yourself."
