( Beautiful Wholeness Teens Program )

Thank you for all that you do and for genuinely helping me in so many areas of my life and always speaking the truth whether I want to hear it or not. I love you all!


Ashley F.

( Loyal Podcast Listener )

I met Raychel and Mandy at a time in my life when my life was spinning out of control and my marriage felt hopeless. I honestly thought divorce was not a matter of ‘if’, but ‘when’. Through months of intense one-on-one coaching and introspection with both Raychel and Mandy, I began to rediscover the self-worth and confidence I had sorely lacked for years. Through their incredibly skilled guidance, I always felt at ease in my sessions, which allowed me to open myself up for the sometimes difficult, yet necessary, questions to be asked. I’m elated to say my marriage is now better than ever, and I wouldn’t have been able to move forward without the compassionate guidance of Raychel and Mandy.

( 1-ON-1 Coaching Client )

I attended "Celebrate Your Man" today. These women speak from the heart and share their authentic stories with passion and guide others with a leading from Jesus. What more could a wife ask for? Blessed abundantly today by Raychel, Mandy, (and Joette.) Thanks ladies!!

I love the women at Big Blue Couch and what they stand for, they are zealous in helping women reach excellence, to overcome hindrances to fulfilling their God given purpose. I have attended their Beautifully Whole Conference and I am now in their 12 week Beautifully Whole coaching program...I am changing and becoming beautifully whole in so many ways!
