Mission Statement

Purposeful Living INC is here to serve the modern woman: the woman who looks like she has it all together but behind closed doors she’s hurting, searching, or lonely. We are here to love, to walk alongside, and to encourage women to be all God created us to be: peaceful, joyful, and authentic. Using inspiring events, empowerment coaching, growth groups, and community support, Purposeful Living is transforming women, marriages, and families.
