Baby Steps Towards Freedom | Alita Reynolds & Jill Monaco


Jill Monaco, who has found true freedom in Jesus, discusses discovering our identity in Christ. Being free isn't just about being free from addiction, abuse, or anxiety but about who we were created to be. It's about finding our true identity in Christ and taking control of our fear with a focus on the finished work of Christ. Monaco emphasizes that the mind of Christ sees us as a finished work and who we were supposed to be.


I am so excited to share the latest episode of our show with you. In this episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Jill Monaco, a life coach and author passionate about helping people discover who God made them to be. Here are three takeaways from our conversation:


  1. Life coaching is so much more than just setting goals. Jill explained that coaching is about listening to what the client wants to get out of the session and helping them hear God to figure out the answers to their questions. It's about unveiling the lies they believe and discovering the areas of their life they're passionate about.


  1. Cultivating a relationship with God is key to being able to give His love away to others. Jill emphasized the importance of being in His presence and receiving everything He has for us so we can give it to others. We can only give away what we have, so it's essential to continually receive from Him.


  1. Jill's book, "The Freedom Coach Model," can help readers encounter the presence of God and find freedom in Jesus. If you're looking for a resource to help you discover who God made you to be, this book is a great place to start.
