Hello, my name is Verl Taylor. My wife Daisy and I have been married for 50 years. We have 4 adult children and 3 grandchildren; so, it goes without saying that we know something about marriage and raising children. In addition, I have served as Pastor of 3 different churches over a 30-year time span. During that time, I have seen almost every conceivable life situation in the lives of our church families. Life is challenging and sometimes difficult to understand. With the Scriptures as my guiding principles, I have encouraged many individuals, couples, youth, professionals, business owners, employers, and folks from every walk of life, navigate the difficulties and challenging decisions they are confronted with. I thoroughly enjoy using my gifts, training and experiences to help people solve problems, make choices, organize their private lives and sort out details and decisions of their lives so they can move ahead confidently.
While I feel the experiences of my lifetime of ministry have helped shape and prepare me for Christian Life Coaching, my training really began while I was growing up in a military family living all over the country. After graduation from High School in the Midwest, I attended Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids Michigan. After university, I graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary where I received my Theological training. During 30 years of ministry I continued my education with many and various seminars, short term courses and learning opportunities. I also have an expansive personal library. I am also continuing my education in Christian Life Coaching through the Light University founded by the Association for Christian Counselors (AACC).
Mental Illness is something many people deal with either in their own life or the life of a loved one. Being the primary caregiver for my brother who suffers with mental illness has given me a unique perspective that has allowed me to help many people.
Another difficulty we face in our day is that of chemical dependencies and addictions. Being involved in the lives of people for 30 years has allowed me to gain great experience in coaching people who struggle in this area as well. I am compassionate and caring, yet tough and confrontational when the situation requires those skills.
In my spare time, when not accomplishing “Honey Do’s,” I enjoy working on my car, which I occasionally race in sanctioned track days, and also enjoy being a diehard, Dallas Cowboy, football fan.
