Helping You Achieve Success

Quarantine Fatigue

We’ve reached a place in this time of isolation that has lost its novelty. Family time, rest, and even time outdoors has reached a point of monotony for some. People are restless. We can see the good that has come from it, but too much of even a good thing has the possibility of tipping the scales in a negative direction. Then there are those who have lost income and lost loved ones. It’s a tough time. Many people are reporting feeling stressed, stuck, trapped, not knowing what to expect, asking when this will end? Tensions mount, spouses get on each other’s last nerve, and too much togetherness triggers conflict.

It will be awhile before we see a total freedom from all restrictions. As a counselor listening to others this week, as well as facing my own struggles, I’m going to share a few suggestions and hope they might be helpful.

  1. Turn off the news. One update a day is adequate. Overloading on statistics, deaths, political rhetoric, and all levels of opinions can wear you down. Turn it off! Avoid social media hype.
  2. Focus on your health: sunshine, fresh air, exercise,

When God calls you to something, He is not always calling you to succeed, He’s calling you to obey! The success of the calling is up to Him; the obedience is up to you.

Spiritual or Physical…or both

Sun rays bursting through my windows. Dogs stretched out, soaking up the warmth. The sound of a tree trimmer buzzing off in the distance. Peaceful. Tranquil. Thoughts about the passage of scripture I just read are slowly permeating my soul. Prayer comes easily,...

“I Do Not Remember”

Written with wisdom and compassion from a place of experiences–many of them–some personal and some from her work/ministry as a Christian counselor. The author shares her own past struggles with anxiety and stress and offers spiritual insights and practical steps to find peace and victory in Christ. I am grateful for her honesty and transparency about her personal trials and challenges, and for sharing what she has found that works for herself and her clients. And I appreciate that she speaks the truth that this is a process that will be ongoing until we find ourselves in heaven. I will be reading this book again.

Well written and very helpful

If you are serious about resting in Christ, read this book. It has many practical applications , but it also talks gently to your spirit. I found myself engage with it when the author began to describe many experiences she had had, and feelings she had felt as she’d tried to find God’s rest, because they were much like my experiences. But the real value in this books comes from the pearls she drops here and there, two of which I believe will change my life.
This book is a treasure.


Leigh Crane-Freeman

Nancy LaPointe’s gentle, caring prose soothes the soul. Through the application of reassuring scripture to her own real life challenges, Nancy points the way to staying in the eye of the storm and not being destroyed by the winds. Kudos!



A page-turner! Excellent plot which keeps thickening. Enjoyed the mystery along with God’s provision and guidance. Looking forward to a sequel.


P. Salazar
A page-turner!

So enjoyed this book by LaPointe. I would recommend reading it before you read her next book which I did not do; however, it did not stop me from enjoying them both immensely. I think her research was obvious and it kept you wondering what you would do if you were in this reporters shoes. I think a must read for those who enjoy a wholesome Christian-based novel. You will not be disappointed in this book and please encourage this author to write more.

This book was well written ,I did not want to put it down. It was a Christian viewpoint, and problem solving in today’s complicated world.

Masked in deceit

Nancy LaPointe has done an outstanding job with this one. “Faith’s Illusions” is a fantastic inspirational romance read with a few twists along the way. Great storyline, well developed characters and narrative.Everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable book is in here. It definitely makes you question your own beliefs and Gods hands in sharing blessings even through crisis and adversity … A great read for us women. Happy to read this for an honest review.

“Exceptional & Inspiring Fiction Romance”

I enjoyed reading this book so much. Nancy’s insight into the deception in the church is really needed in today’s world. Loved the book.


Nadine P Stafford
I enjoyed reading this book so much

An excellent read. The story line pulls you in gradually as this couples seemingly idyllic relationship and upcoming marriage is without any controversy. The controversy between them implodes and you do not want to put it down. Lots of research went into this book and if you enjoy Christian books that are truly Word based, not opinion based, this is a must for you, Very well written, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend and will read her other

Excellent read!

Find Your Balance. Set Your Goals. Take A Challenge. Reward Yourself.

Do you sometimes question yourself regarding your life choices, your career, your relationships, or where your future is headed? Most people do at one time or another. The real questions might be:
          Are you satisfied with your choices?
                    Are you fulfilled?
                              Are you at peace?
                                        Are you excited about your future?
If you answered “no” to any of these, it might be that you could benefit from a little help to refine your focus or determine a new direction.

Many times we feel “stuck”, bogged down, or that we can’t make changes for all kinds of reasons. The truth is that most of the time that is not true, and there are options for change! We just need a little help to explore possibilities and get motivated.

Whether you need some basic coaching in a specific area of your life, or some digging deeper into personal issues counseling, I am here for you! We can work online, through video chat,
email, phone, or in person, whatever works best for you and your schedule.

Think about it. Pray about it. Make that move toward positive change! You won’t regret it!

Fees for Life Coaching or Counseling: $50 per one hour session. Weekly sessions are recommended; however, other plans are available. (Payment online through this site.)
