Hi there, I’m so glad to have to you visiting my page and I welcome you to join me on my social media pages to connect, where I can also get to know you ! I have my social media page links over here on the far right –>
My name is Sara Bown, I’m a blessed wife to David of 18 years, mom to 3 wonderful boys who are 16, 12 & 4, speaker, writer, certified LIFE coach. In short, I’m on a mission to empower women to live their BEST most BLESSED life, rocking #SelfLove #SelfRespect & #SelfBelief and for me, that’s always on the foundation of #GodsGrace
What’s the difference between what I do as a LIFE coach and a weight loss coach ?? When I started coaching 5 a few years ago, I thought it was going to be mostly about helping people shed pounds and as I have traveled my own journey over the last few years, I have realized, my passion, is to help people GAIN life instead of solely focusing on losing weight.
Trust me, I get it, having started my journey at 310 lbs in 2010 so low in self love, self respect and self belief.. I know what it is to want to be smaller – I remember the night before I finally made life changes, I was in the shower, crying my eyes out and praying to God to make me better, to let me wake up 20 lbs lighter because if he did, I would have hope. I can still remember the hot tears burning my face and the deep pain I felt. So many years later, I know I was also asking God to help me feel worthy but what I didn’t know at that time is what I REALLY needed was to love myself just the way I was, the way God created me and maybe even forgive myself for being human/ not the picture of perfect I expected ! I did come away with something that evening and that was feeling that God placed on my heart that I already had all the tools needed to change my life, I just had to use them and moving forward, I needed to be still and listen.
My passion is helping women find their passion, their purpose, their God given gift, to truly LIVE, not some day when they feel good enough but NOW in this very moment because we all ARE good enough just the way we are !
Life is precious and we never know how long we have, I help women live TODAY to the fullest because tomorrow isn’t promised and waiting to live our best most blessed life someday when we feel good enough, is like playing russian roulette !
As a young girl, I knew God had a purpose for me and I’ll admit that so many years passed without me knowing what it was, that I begun to question if I had been wrong. Now I know I was always meant to travel the road I did, feel what I have, learn and grow as a did so I could be here now and help others from a place of knowing what’s it’s like to want to live a more full, rich, blessed life.

Testimonials from some people I’ve worked with –> http://sarabown.com/testimonials
I created the video below in 2012 and at the time, I was embarrassed to shared that only months before, I actually started my journey at a little over 300 lbs, I just wasn’t ready to voice that for ALL to know, I was having a hard enough time knowing myself. Over time however, I’ve gained freedom from my shame and know my full story is what can truly help others. There has been 5 ( almost 6) years pass since this time and I have had another son who is now almost 4 and have had chronic pain move in from Fibromyalgia in my entire body and arthritis. I went from completing my second half marathon in October 2015 to barely able to move come November. My dad has also recently pass away…..My intention in sharing this is to say, I have have ups and downs like every person, being a coach doesn’t give me a magic shield from the challenges of life. I will say however, I realized years ago, very early on that I wasn’t on a weight loss journey like I had thought, I was on a GAIN life journey ! I’ve learned that often when people want to be ( better ) there seems to be two sides they fall on.
1. We HAVE to drop pounds, find a way to be beautiful and fit in and AFTER we do this, we can truly start to live.
2. We need to be happy and content with where we are, sure we have goals and dreams but we get comfortable where we are, we believe those inner voices saying ” don’t bother ” ” you can’t ” ” you’re not good enough ” and decide,we are is good enough…we feel scared or maybe even unworthy to be our best and just decide to not even try.
My goal in life is to provide another option for women who don’t feel good enough, for women who want more so they have more to give but just don’t know how !
* This is the option I feel called to share and it’s to help make a choice to GAIN life, to embrace who we are in the now, not so we can become stuck or indifferent but because we each have something to give and share NOW, not someday when we feel worthy because we ARE worthy !! This doesn’t mean we can’t be a better versions of ourselves in the future as I feel we should all strive for that. It means the person we are today, the person God made in HIS image is good enough !!
When we focus on gaining life, we realize our self confidence / self love issues are never just about how we look, most often we have a few things going on and my coaching is meant to dig deep, to create goals that help you LIVE in the moment and enjoy the journey, to find a method in what may often feel like madness !
If you’re a page friend from one of my social media pages, I pray this has helped you get to know me a little. Every day when I count my blessings, the ability to reach all of you and have so many share with me is counted !!! It means so much to me to have you on my journey, I care !!
In light & love
Sara E Bown
