Brown Bread for the Soul
In John 10:10, Jesus said,“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life and have it in abundance (to the full till it overflows).”
Unfortunate circumstances, negative habits, behaviors, and thought-patterns keep us from experiencing the abundant life that Jesus came to give. We at Brown Bread for the Soul would like to support clients in pursuit of this God-given right.
Other Foundational Scriptures:
John 6:35, Jesus replied, "I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more (at any time)."
Matthew 26:26, Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread and, praising God, gave thanks and asked Him to bless it to their use, and when He had broken it, He gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."
We are a global community of coaches and counselors. Our hearts are moved by people who would like to lead victorious lives but who seem to be stuck.

1. Purposefully Functional (definitions extracted from Online Dictionary)
Purposefully describes the action or demeanor of a person who is determined or resolute.
2. Mindset (definition by Gary Klein Ph.D. extracted from Psychology Today): A Mindset is a belief that orients the way we handle situations — the way we sort out what is going on and what we should do. Our mindsets help us spot opportunities but they can trap us in self-defeating cycles.
The organization was established to help men, women, and children address the mindsets that keep them from experiencing the abundant life, i.e., being purposeful, functional, and successful.
These mindsets may be the result of (cycles of) generational, spiritual, psychological, or cultural programming.
They can influence habits, patterns, and responses of individuals and/or communities. Further, a dysfunctional mindset can lead to systemic poverty; cycles of struggle, failure, and addiction; brokenness in individuals, marriages, homes, and societies.
