Testimonial from Author Nancy Kay Grace: 

“Frequent roadblocks discouraged me from finishing my manuscript. I was stuck with a partial manuscript and needed motivation and accountability. I didn’t know how to proceed. I became aware of Rebecca’s coaching service at a writer’s conference. After explaining my stuck situation to her, I got the feeling that she could help me.

“Through the Skype coaching calls, Rebecca helped identify the fears and distractions that kept me from writing. She also helped my writing skills by asking questions that sharpened my focus. I became more intentional and motivated from the accountability of discussing my progress, problems, and plan to go forward. Progress occurred steadily from attaining small goals. The coaching was beneficial because it helped me press on to complete the manuscript.”

Author Jerry Lout

“The advantages in having a good writing coach are many. Since securing the services of RJ Thesman, my confidence in pressing forward with the craft has been greatly enhanced. The quality of my work continues to improve.

RJ’s approach is straight-forward and professional. Her years of experience, individual coaching and her contributions as presenter at various writers conferences, commend her to the quality training she’s become known for.

I credit Coach RJ a great deal for seeing me through to the finish line in ‘Living With A Limp’ and for the good strides made toward the (soon) completion of my next project.”

Author Shanna Groves:

“Rebecca Thesman has coached me in the following areas: writing, spiritual development, and prayer. During crucial growth periods, I credit Rebecca with offering wise instruction and encouragement. While I wrote my first book, Rebecca coached me on honoring God with my words. She took the time to meet with me and counsel me on how to write a Christian novel. We have prayed over a number of life issues, including marriage, parenting, depression, and addiction. I trust Rebecca’s guidance as Spirit-led and -blessed.”

Author Amy Bovaird:

“I always feel full of possibilities after I coach with RJ Thesman.”

Author Jennifer Maxwell: (website coming soon)

“I am learning to trust my coach with my innermost terrible pain and understand she sees beauty in me. She sees hope. She sees a future. These have bolstered my self-image and make me keep writing. My writing never disappoints her. She wants me to finish the course well. Her affirmation, prayer and listening – golden heart revitalizes these fingers.

RJ Thesman has fed me with confidence, reassurance and hope. When my fingers and spirit lagged, she was there to help them fly over the computer keys and keep writing. Whatever hurdles came my way, her confidence in me, provided the ability to fly over them, land on my feet.  I kept going.

She challenged me to soar and see what I could actually do. When I reached that plateau, she showed me higher ground to conquer, and attain. My dream of completing my book became a reality.

Tammy Watson:

“My experience as Rebecca’s coaching client has been wonderful. She has been an inspiration for me throughout the creation of my company, My Keepsake Garden. She has kept me motivated and accountable. Her knowledge and skill as a Life Coach is truly amazing. In fact, I am now enrolled in the Holistic Healing Academy to become a Life Coach myself, due mainly to my positive experiences with Rebecca.”

  3. I am 82 years old and have always enjoyed writing. I have won awards for my poetry throughout my school years. After my kids grew up, I wrote for my own enjoyment. After retiring from my nursing career I entered local and national poetry competitions and won quite a few prizes. I’ve been published several times. Of late, I have not been writing, but don’t know why. I would love to publish a memoir. Can you help?
