Stages of Essence

About Christine

Recovering your Essence brings strength, purpose and fulfillment back into your life and relationships. You will truly live and love while engaging your whole being fully, not partially. 


Welcome to Recovered Essence! I'm Christine. I'm a Christian Certified Life Coach, author, speaker, wife, mother and creator of the Recovered Essence Program. 

I love authentically connecting with people. My own struggles and victories inspired me to share my story with others in need of hope. While writing Recovered Essence: How Toxic Relationships Impact Your Inner Child, my vision grew to see others realize their value to God and others. I wanted to provide a system to guide people to self-acceptance, true freedom and influence. The Recovered Essence Program  helps people understand where they are in the process of recovering their true identity and lead them in their next steps. I’m passionate about encouraging others in this unique approach to wholeness.  I want to see their own story become a meaningful page turner.


About the Book

Recovered Essence was written to help people awaken to a life they may not have realized was available to them. 

My own story reveals how we may abandon our own true essence in order to survive the effects of past traumas and unresolved issues. Mine led me to a toxic relationship in the search for the Perfect Love I longed for. 

No person plans to enter a toxic relationship but things have a way of coming to the surface for a good reason—to fully heal us.  Much of my life  I wrestled with mistaken value rooted in the pain of  my childhood. Thinking that a happy family of my own would make things better, my dream became a nightmare. Facing painful abuse and betrayal led me to deal with my buried pain. Parts of my true self awakened to the love I was worthy of all along, but not from another person, but from a Heavenly Father who was eager to restore my life.  Because I did, a divine promise is unveiled by the only One  who is trustworthy. Miracles can happen when we experience God's love from the inside out. 

Alongside my story, key scriptures and insights teach how our mental, emotional and spiritual processes help restore and redeem what was lost. The goal: To  believe truth instead of lies, heal the wounds of the past and recover our essence.

About the Recovered Essence Program

The Recovered Essence Program is 8-sessions that help people discover their identity and transform their lives.  The program is designed to address common misconceptions and patterns that keep us stuck.  We  can then unlock new potential to move on to the next phase of essence. People become aware of new ways of thinking and believing that begins to open new doors when hope is restored.

When people realize they have limiting beliefs and thoughts, and begin to trust safe relationships, parts of them come to life. Instead of abandoning themselves to addictions or unhealthy relationships, they connect with their true selves. People often discover a deeper sense of value, enriching their lives and relationships with others and God.

Why does Recovered Essence Work?

People need to know what hasn't worked and why. They may have tried to leave their past behind, but in actuality they go on for years trying to make up for its voids. Familiar thought patterns,  limiting beliefs and coping mechanisms will mask the core needs for lasting security. Discovering this and applying the tools allows them to actualize life with higher perspectives, reviving their true selves from the inside out.

As people engage their own heart along with the timeline of Christine's story, they work on their own unfinished story. The core concepts in the program are expounded intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, because we are a spirit, have a soul and live in a body. 

Throughout the process, people often awaken out of spiritual slumber.  Their spirit connects with a loving God as they give themselves permission to think and believe in higher truths hidden for years.  They feel the inner peace from God who predestined them to live in all along. Perception becomes clearer as God’s grace enables them to live and love in His strength, not only their own. Gods redeeming and restoring love replaces the empty, painful vices from years of emotional survival. 

The Recovered Essence Program will cover:

  • How your first models of love affected your security and value 
  • A deeper understanding about the true Lover of your soul 
  • Understanding the impact of fear, rejection and unresolved issues 
  • Incomplete attractions, idols and relationship warning signs 
  • The lost self, surrender and rebuilding a secure foundation 
  • Spiritual laws, heavenly courts and inheritances  
  • Finishing your redemptive life story
