Welcome!

My name is Kathleen Fischer and I am passionate about equipping God’s people to connect with Christ so they can overcome the real-life challenges they face and experience ALL they were created to be.

All of us experience challenges on earth!

Jesus told us this in John 16:33 when he said “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

What strikes me about this statement is the way Jesus tells us the secret to peace and contrasts it with where we usually look for peace. He says in HIM we would find our peace vs. in the world we will have trouble. Hmmm… So simple. So true. Yet so challenging to walk in the light of!

Where We Look for Our Peace

So why is it that we all look to find our peace in the things and people of this world?  Because we are human! The world is so loud and its messages to seek peace and joy through our success, our relationships, our activities, our homes, our jobs, our families, our vacations, our finances, … the list goes on.  I believe if we are honest with ourselves, we’d admit that our natural approach to life is to pour tremendous energy into our environment and the people around us with the hopes that they will bring us the peace and joy we long for!

What I’ve Discovered

But I have discovered that we have it backward. Through my own struggles and frustrations with just such an approach, Jesus taught me that it is in His Presence, as well as in His power and promises that a fullness of peace and joy are found.  In short, it is Jesus HIMSELF that is the source from which we are invited to draw, rather than from the world! This drawing is abundant and available 24/7.  It brings us the love, comfort, wisdom, and LIFE we so hungrily look to the world for!  It is then, from this place of being filled by Jesus Christ, that we have an abundance of love, grace, and wisdom to pour into the world. What a contrast to what the world says and believes!

The Birth of Transformed for LIFE

It was during the learning of this truth that God ignited my heart to become His vessel of encouragement to His people, to become a coach and to create Transformed for LIFE.

I’ll never forget the day. I was on my face before God, seeking His leading for my life, when I heard Him say, ever so simply, “Encourage my People”. I sat back and thought, “Well that’s easy. I LOVE to encourage people!” But it was in the years that ensued that God taught me the depth of need in the lives of people, the depth of His yearning heart to help us, and the depth to which I would personally have to go to bring the work to life.  It has been a journey that I never could have scripted or imagined. But it was the perfect journey to prepare me to serve as a coach, writer, and friend to all who come.

Thus, Transformed for LIFE was born to encourage and equip God’s people to first experience, and then bring, the LIFE of Jesus Christ into every aspect of their lives.  As a result, they are empowered to be all they were created to be… joyously filled with the fullness of God to do the amazing things they were created to do!

Wow! What a blessing God has given to His people! To be His vibrant light-bearers in a dark and hurting world.

On The Personal Side…

As for me, I am deeply honored to be able to serve God’s people. It is my greatest desire that by doing so, people will come to know the hope they have in Christ. For, it is through His love and power we have been given the ability to overcome absolutely everything we will encounter on earth.

In my personal life, I am the same as other people. I wear many hats and juggle lots of competing responsibilities. I have chores to tend to and bills to pay.  I am blessed to have a family to love and a business to enjoy.  I also wrestle with my flesh, the ways of this world and sin. But in the midst of it all, I seek to live vibrantly through the power of Christ.

Finally, I am a passionate person. Where I once struggled with anxiety and depression, by God’s grace, I have now been Transformed for LIFE.  As a result, I have come to love every aspect of life… people, nature, gardening, reading, exercising, hiking, living life outdoors and the glory of sunshine, and even the challenges of life. I love to drive with my sunroof open and my windows down… even in the New England winter… just to feel more alive! I think this is part of recovering from a darkened space! I live near the ocean, am married to a surfer, have two amazing young-adult children and love to sit on the beach with a good book on a summer day. Whenever I can steal away from my work, I love to sit with a friend over coffee or tea in a cafe. I love crackling fires outdoors at night under the stars. And most of all I love God. I love the way coaching allows me to explore the magnificence of His creation within people and the wonders of watching what only He is able to do in and through them. I am fascinated by the wonder of it ALL!

How can I help you?

Now it’s your turn. I’m here for you… to help you live the life you were created it live!

So, while you are here…

Glory to God and Joy for You

I pray that God will be glorified through the supportive options you find here and that you may be filled with joy as you allow God to transform you to become a remarkable vessel of Jesus Christ in a hurting world. I know that, through Him, you will become the magnificent person you were created to be, who impacts this world with the incredible Life, Love, and Glory of God!

So let’s get going! 

I look forward to getting to know you as we share the journey of LIFE in Christ.

With Sincere Love ~ Kathleen
