I have accumulated tools to support those lagging skills that those of us with ADHD struggle with daily, such as:
Collaborative Problem Solving
As an ADHD’er, a believer, and a mom, I have tried to reconcile my ADHD with God's promise that one fruit of the Holy Spirit is “self-control.”
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
2 Timothy 1:7
But, if self-control requires emotional regulation, which, according to Russell Barkley (and my own experience), I ain’t got, how can I have both ADHD and Self-Control?
Also, God tells us in Hebrews 12:1
“...Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,”
To, “Throw off” temptations and, “Run with perseverance” requires emotional regulation and self-control! Again, you mean me? Can I do what God has asked me to if I have ADHD?
What does this mean for me and others with ADHD who, by definition, struggle with all of this?
By “fixing our eyes on Jesus,” God tells us that we can confidently run because He will provide what we need for perseverance toward His purposes. I believe that coaching has been a powerful, God-given resource for my ADHD challenges and I would be honored by the opportunity to provide what I have learned in my ADHD coach training to you. The first consultation is always free and will allow us to meet, discuss your needs around ADHD (as a parent, child, teacher, or young adult), and hear more about how coaching works.
