GOCaC will partner with churches, marriage ministries and other agencies that have a strong focus on supporting marriages.  By applying principles of wisdom and truth from the Bible couples are given the blueprint for a thriving marriage. 

Coaching Services

GOCaC offers Social and Emotional Intelligence coaching to women who want an accurate understanding of their emotional strengths and limitations while also rediscovering their purpose and value in life.


What is Social and Emotional Intelligence? It is a form of intelligence that drives our success in work and in life and in our relationships with others.  Social Emotional Intelligence is about being aware of ourselves and others, in the moment, and using that awareness to manage ourselves (our behavior, our responses to stressful or challenging situations), and manage our relationships with others.  And the great news is, Social and Emotional Intelligence can be learned and strengthened throughout our lives!


Contact Adrienne Woods, a certified Social and Emotional Intelligence coach at 414-502-8719 or complete the Contact Us form to schedule a free 20-minute phone or video consultation.
