My Story

I can't wait to hear your story, dear one. We'll work together to deepen your relationship with the Lord so you can follow Him with your whole heart and love yourself and others as Christ loves you.


"The butterfly does not look back at the caterpillar in shame, just as you should not look back at your past in shame. Your past was (is) part of your own transformation." Anthony Gucciardi

Hello, dear one! I'm Darla Colinet, certified Christian Life Coach, and I'm so glad you are here looking for answers and help to live the life God intends for you to live in Christ.

Although I grew up in a Christian home, my mother suffered from mental illness. My parents also struggled with their brokenness and co-dependency, which left me feeling love-starved and with almost non-existent self-esteem. I endured a date rape at fifteen, a miscarriage, infertility, and three abusive marriages and divorces.

I know how frustrating and disappointing life can be when you love the Lord and do your best to serve Him, yet, you struggle to feel loved, good enough, valued, and you questioned your faith and purpose at times. I know how confusing it is to be married to another "Christian" and realize he is abusing you. I know how hard it is to believe that you can have a better life centered in Christ and live in healthy, happy relationships. I have been in these heart-wrenching places, but my life is proof that you don't have to stay there. You can move from shattered to victorious walking hand in hand with Jesus on a proven success path.


Choosing to walk the path of Christ's revelation, healing, and restoration can be hard, challenging, and it takes time. But the healing in my life only came when I decided to dig deep and discover what I didn't know, face my truth, and create a success plan with Jesus that would bring his healing and restoration. My life is proof that working with Jesus and someone who has been in your shoes is worth your commitment, time, work, money, and perseverance.

Because we can only do what we know, we must change what we know and incorporate it into our lives every day to change our lives. Until you learn and operate in Christ's truth and love design, you will continue to have the same challenges, problems, and results. Only you can choose to change your life with Christ, so be courageous and begin your journey with me.

It is an honor to share my faith journey's struggles to let you know that you are not alone, faulty, or crazy! The promises of God are not only true for me, but also for you. I know this because the same Jesus that lives in me lives in you. 


Let me help you learn to work with Jesus and let him take the broken pieces of your life and create a beautiful stained-glass masterpiece that shines a kaleidoscope of God's love, healing, and hope. I see you. I hear you, and I'm here for you.

"God created me—and you—to live with a single, all-embracing, all-transforming passion—namely, a passion for glorifying God by enjoying and displaying his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life."
― John Piper, Don't Waste Your Life

Life coaching empowers you to discover your truths and use your insight to move from where you are right now to the future you have envisioned.

The coaching session is a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space that takes place during a phone call or emails. The process of coaching helps me hear your heart, fears, and dreams without judgment while following the International Coach Federation (ICF), guidelines. I empower you through questions, exercises, assessments, and tools to understand your truths, beliefs, and values. I help you use your truths to create strategies and accountability to achieve your personal, relationship, spiritual, or career goals.

Life coaching DOES NOT dwell on your past. As your certified life coach, I help you move in a forward motion. Your forward momentum ignites discovery, creativeness, and transformation to help you achieve your goals. You choose what you want to focus on and a goal for each session.

Coaching is not telling you what to do, judging or labeling you, or fixing you. I respect your unique spiritual journey. You don’t have to be a Christ follower to benefit from my coaching foundation built on the model of Christ’s love and God’s word. My focus as your life coach is to empower you to become your best now and to help you move into your vision for your future.

Coaching differs from therapy and counseling. Therapy and counseling help you recover and walk through your past wounds. A coach empowers you to move from where you are now to where you would like to be in the future. I know from personal experience, when you have suffered deep trauma or depression in your life, it is crucial to work with a great counselor or therapist. Sometimes you must resolve past pain to move forward.

Let’s be Honest

You can’t make a lasting mental, physical, or behavior change in 45 minutes! In fact, behavior experts say it takes 21 days to create a new habit or 66 days to make a new behavior automatic. To have a transformational change you will need to make a commitment to yourself and me as your life coach. I know you are worth the time and resources needed to identify and break free from the obstacles that are holding you back.

What would your life be like if you could stop falling into the same traps?

What has it cost you to keep trying to do things on your own?

What would you give to be able to have someone who has broken free from the bondage of their life, empower you to break through yours?

"“I am so lonely, sad” what has happened to me! How did I get here? These were my struggles before I began life coaching with Darla. Darla has been a God sent! In sharing just a few concerns, she reframed what she heard me say, or would restate my words bringing clarity to the real issues beneath my emotions. She helped me find the right plan for me to move forward. Now, I have new awareness on taking care of my emotional needs, I am creating the next chapter in my life “with joy and anticipation” and it began with working with Darla as my Life Coach!
