My life is busy. Too busy in fact. Rushing from task to task, kid to kid, job to job, rarely taking a moment to ask “why”? My coaching time with Matt is my time to stop and ask “why”.  In my heart I knew I needed this time and yes it’s a sacrifice that sometimes feels like a luxury, but now that I’ve been doing these sessions with Matt for a while I can see how this time has slowly become vital to my emotional and spiritual health.  Matt asks all the right questions; not condemning or presumptive, just loving and direct.  He helps me get to the core of issues I raise, then sets me on a path toward a resolution or sometimes simply offers to walk with me through the storm.  If you’re looking for someone who has a knack for seeing past the obvious, has a deep understanding of topics that face all people, and is emotionally supportive and spiritually gifted, I recommend Matt’s and his coaching through Deeper Ministries.

During my late twenties, I found myself ensnared within a state of aching, angst, and confusion. Though I had given my life to Christ at a young age and accepted the transformative gift of His resurrecting power, years of poorly tended wounds and unintentional apathy slowly tarnished my perception of myself, God, and life in general. I sought healing through Deeper Coaching because I was painfully aware that I had fallen far from the best version of myself and far from what God had intended for me. It was a breaking point of realizing and acknowledging that I did not possess the tools to do the work necessary to restore the human God saw when He looked upon me. I`m fairly certain that other than deciding you`re going to admit your brokenness, determining who to invite into it with you while you shine a light on your weaknesses is one of the more terrifying things you can choose to step into during this life. Reflecting on previous years, I can identify seasons in which God brought people across my path for specific purposes. I am grateful that one of those people is Matt. It is beyond contestation that God allowed our paths to cross for a season so that I can victoriously work through and conquer past and present hurts in exchange for eternal joy. It has been made abundantly clear to me, on numerous occasions, that Matt is operating within his calling. He has a gentleness and peace as well as an ability to empathetically inquire in a way that is undoubtedly Christ working through him to restore you. I am honored to be a part of his ministry.

I’ve been meeting with Matt for several months now and it has been extremely helpful. When I first met Matt I was dealing with extremeguilt, shame, religiosity, and hopelessness. Matt was very patient and kind. He is also a strong and solid man and challenged me and my false beliefs. I felt very safe when meeting with Matt. He prayed with me and over me. Miracles have happened since then. I was in a deep, deep pit that I never thought I would come out of but with God’s wonderful grace, friends and family not giving up on me, coaching sessions with Matt, and tenacity to keep going, I am now out of that pit! My relationship with God is growing again and I am so much more free. Matt wasn’t intimidated with the seriousness of the issues I was facing but loved me enough to stick with me through them. Thanks Matt. Thanks Jesus!

Matt helped me through a very confusing and difficult time in my life. I knew I needed help during this time period and I wanted to find someone that would help me tackle these issues by bringing Christ with us. Matt turned out to be the perfect fit.

What I liked about Matt’s coaching is he never forgot to bring Christ into the story. He also created plenty of space to allow Christ to reveal things about my past, and heal those wounds that I still carried. I want to make a very clear point here. I believe that Matt was created to do this! God is using him to help people walk through the tough, confusing, and weary parts of life. He brings incredible clarity to confusing situations.

What I liked about his sessions is he doesn’t just dive into the current situations, he takes you back to your entire story. Most of the pain we deal with today isn’t because of our current situation, it is due to the wounds we have been carrying for years. Matt helped me tie the past with the present, and together, with Christ, I was able to lasting healing, not just a temporary fix. Matt has an uncanny ability to quickly identify the root cause of issues. This is what allows such complete healing, he is able to help us find the source.

Lastly, Matt didn’t just leave me healed to go out and face the world and become wounded again. He has given me practical tools to overcome the everyday problems that I face. I still have regular coaching sessions with Matt and he is able to give me a different perspective on issues that I am dealing with, and he continues to give me tools.

I would highly recommend Matt for anyone who needs help navigating through a difficult or confusing time period in their life. I would also recommend Matt for anyone who wants to get healing from past wounds and live a fuller complete life.
