What is the Truth Statement™ Concept?
Big Blue Couch® Coaching developed the Truth Statement™ concept years ago. This powerful coaching concept is much more than just speaking positive affirmations; it is a concept grounded in God’s Word. Speaking Truth Statements out loud (even when you don’t believe them) shifts your thoughts, words, and actions to line up with God’s Word. Consistent use of this practice equips you to live a beautifully whole life, stopping negative thoughts in their tracks while raising belief and strengthening faith.
Does Big Blue Couch® Coaching take insurance?
No, health insurance does not cover Life Coaching Services. One of the reasons for this is because Life Coaches are not qualified to diagnose or treat any psychological or medical conditions. For more clarification, please refer to our Disclaimer on our Permissions and Copyright Page.

Is there a real blue couch?
Yes! The big blue couch™ is a real couch. The short version of how it inspired a company goes like this:
In 2011, with two kids and one on the way, Raychel needed to purchase a new couch for her growing family. Stuck in the corner of a busy furniture store she found a huge, blue, couch. Best of all it was on clearance. It was perfect.
Little did she know what the couch would soon mean for her and Mandy. After twenty years of friendship, and lots of ups and downs, things took a dramatic shift in 2012. In a season of deep depression and sickness, the couch became a spot for the best of friends to talk and encourage each other. It was the ultimate safe place for hurting hearts, and many sleep overs have been had within its trusting cushions.
The Big Blue Couch™ isn’t just your average piece of furniture. It’s the place you run to when life happens.
