Free from expectations.

Free from guilt.

Free from shame.

And free to live a life of

peace, love, and purpose.

Stop waiting. Change your life today.


People are done with church

For more and more Americans, it is a place filled with pain, anger, or judgment.

For others, it’s simply a pale version of what it could be; what it is supposed to be; what they long for it to be.

Giving Up Sunday is an honest look at some of the worst mistakes made by American churches, and offers an alternative that is raw, authentic, and full of hope.


  • If you are done with church or know someone who is
  • If you long for more and don’t know where to start
  • If you are looking for a truly genuine faith, a community rooted in love, and a calling in your life that transcends the nine to five plus ten on Sunday,

this is your new beginning.




I was too.

Then I saw a life coach and he helped me get my life back on the track I always wanted.
Now I am a coach with over 10 years experience helping others find their best path! I want to help you too.

Meet Kurtis

Many of us are born with incredible gifts just boiling up within us. The problem is, our churches and religious organizations don’t always value those gifts.
