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.

Stages of Essence


About the Book

Recovered Essence was written to help every reader discover something about their true identity. The parts that are incomplete are found only by understanding the Perfect Love we were created for. It provides our soul with security and guides our humanity. But what if we weren’t privileged in childhood to learn how Perfect Love works? Instead, we relied on substitutes to cope and find value. Those weak foundations are built on fear which hinders us from being the person we were created to be. 

Christine’s story reveals how some of us abandon our own true essence in order to survive the effects of the past. In doing so, our own unfinished childhood issues may lead us to toxic relationships in the search for the Perfect Love we long 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. After wrestling most of her life with mistaken value, Christine allows her slowly surrendering will to be guided by the true Shepherd of her soul. While facing painful deception head on and eventually exchanging it with Perfect Love, a hidden promise is unveiled by the One who is trustworthy. Being fostered by the Lover of her soul, the promise eventually is fulfilled while becoming fully engaged in her true, Recovered Essence.

Alongside her story, Christine provides essential insights which teach us the process of renewing our mind and restoring what was lost from the start. The goal: To reveal the deception, heal the wounds of the past and recover our essence by the love from the One who created it.

About the Recovered Essence Program

Christine developed the Recovered Essence Program: 8-sessions designed to help people recover their true identity. Dealing with childhood to present issues,  it offers practical and inspiring approaches to healing our whole authentic self. Empowering clients with key factors from her research as well as sharing her own experiences, clients can safely unmask, unlock their hidden soul and heal. 

"When people realize they have limiting beliefs and thoughts, and begin to trust a safe relationship, it’s as if they come back to life. Instead of abandoning themselves to addictions or unhealthy relationships, they connect with their true selves through an experience with Perfect Love. People often discover a deeper sense of value for themselves, enriching their lives and relationships with others and God."

Why does Recovered Essence Work?

First of all, people need to know what hasn't worked. They may have tried to leave their past behind, but in actuality they go on for years trying to make up for its voids. They may have formed unhelpful thought patterns,  limiting beliefs and coping mechanisms, which mask the core needs for lasting security. Discovering this allows them to actualize life with higher perspectives, reviving their core self to be loved by God.

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 come alive out of spiritual sleep.  It's as if their spirit connects with a loving God as they give themselves permission to think and believe in a higher truth. 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 they used for years of emotional survival.
