We don’t talk about ministry and money.

At least not out loud.

But oh, the endless arguments that happen inside your head!

How many of these concerns do you recognize from your own internal debates?

    1.  Talking about my pricing makes me feel so awkward and uncomfortable

    2.  I’m afraid that what I’m offering isn’t enough..

    3.  My products or services are too closely connected to ministry.

    4.  After telling someone my rates, I wonder how they must be feeling about me.

    5.  I worry about offending or scaring someone off.

    6.  I’m not as qualified as other women who offer the exact same thing I do. 

    7.  I’m told that my ideas are great, and I know I’m working hard — so why am I not getting the same results as other people?

    All these demanding inner voices can keep you from making wise choices about when and what to charge for your products and services.

    It’s time to talk.

    It’s time to stop the over-thinking and start an actual discussion.

    It’s time to have some candid conversations about ministry and money.

    Introducing the

    Candid Conversations about Ministry & Money

    5-week group coaching pilot program

    Through four weeks of training and discussion with ministry-minded mentors, you’ll be equipped to:

    KNOW with confidence what to give for free and when to charge a fee.

    LEARN exactly how to respond to every possible reaction to your rates.

    ENJOY the camaraderie and synergy of like-minded peers who get what God’s called you to do.

    REFRAME past “failures” and “rejections” in light of eternal Biblical truths and new psychological research.

    STOP fretting about what other people think of your rates and STAY focused on the only thing that actually matters.

    All in a cooperative group setting.

    I was in a pattern of giving away so much content for free because I lacked the confidence to know that what I was offering was valuable and needed. Working with Cheri and Mary Lou moved me from over-thinking everything to strategic action. And the small group setting offers invaluable coaching, camaraderie, and a comfortable place to explore business ministry ideas.

    Meet Your Coach: Cheri Gregory

    As an author, speaker, and podcaster, I’ve made almost every mistake you could make in ministry and business. Not because I wasn’t trying hard enough, but because I was working against my God-given wiring as a Highly Sensitive Person.

    I’m the co-author of 5 traditionally published books, co-host of Grit ‘n’ Grace—THE PODCAST, and founder of Sensitive & Strong U. I’m an international speaker for women’s retreats and educational conferences.

    I’ve been coaching Christian women in writing and business since 2005. And I love nothing more than helping HSP Christian women use their time and energy in a targeted way that energizes, instead of depleting them. When the student is ready, I’m always here to teach — without overwhelming you with too much information.

    Due to some unexpected and exciting life changes for Mary Lou, Cheri will be leading the program solo.

    Cheri and Mary Lou have created a stress-free and encouraging environment to learn and grow. With their expert help, I’ve been able to focus on my message and purpose and put a value on my time and content. It’s been encouraging to be able to sit down with them for advice and direction. Their experiences and knowledge have been invaluable to me in setting up my own coaching business.

    One of the most difficult parts of being in business for myself was dealing with how awkward it felt to talk about my fees. I worried about charging too much and wondered what others would think. Cheri and Mary Lou have helped me see the value of what I offer, and they’ve taught me how to help others invest in themselves. Their encouragement, experience, and sound advice have been invaluable to me.
