The Peace Benefits represent a dimensions of wellness model that encompass our holistic health and wellbeing. The Peace Benefits consist of twelve principles, that when successfully applied in unison, lead to the ultimate level of peace and security.
Learn more about each Peace Benefits principle by clicking on each letter.
Perspective - The beginning in your quest for peace, health and happiness. Adopting the right mindset is the single most important Peace Benefit because how you view yourself, your circumstances and others is the foundation that ultimately determines your level of success in mastering all other the Peace Benefits Principles.
Environment – Your highest level of peace, health and happiness can only be achieved by placing yourself in the ideal surroundings with people who enable and support your personal growth and improvement.
Appreciation – Learning to identify the three different types of appreciation in your life will take you to unprecedented levels of personal growth and peace.
Career – Studies suggest that many people are dissatisfied and unhappy with their current job. Life is too short not to be happy and fulfilled in your work. Learn how to master the 5 keys to successfully choose the right job for you.
Education – Becoming a life-long learner is a necessity for your life to continue being exciting, interesting, productive and fulfilling. As John Truslow Adams once said, “There are two types of educations. One should teach us how to make a living and the other how to live.”
Balance – The single most often overlooked, misplaced and forgotten Peace Benefit. Until you learn how, what and when to say “no,” and what needs to be reduced or let go, you’ll never experience a life of ultimate peace.
Exercise – According to the CDC, over 75% of Americans don’t get the recommended amount of exercise. The people who do exercise regularly look and feel better, suffer from less sickness and disease, are psychologically healthier, have greater balance in their life, are happier and make more money.
Nutrition – The second most important thing after what you feed your mind is what you feed your body. It’s impossible to look and feel your absolute best until you learn how to fuel your body with quality foods in the right quantities.
Evolve – You ultimately become the best version of yourself through gradually developing into a more complex and complete person. This is not possible without having an awareness and understanding of your Emotional Intelligence. Improving your Emotional Intelligence (EI) will help you communicate more effectively, lead to more fulfilling relationships, and improve your coping and decision-making skills.
Faith – This one Peace Benefits principle trumps all others. Faith is defined as a strong belief, complete trust, and confidence in someone or something. Faith in yourself is great. Faith in God is greater. Faith in God and yourself is the greatest. There is no substitute for learning how to exercise Godly wisdom and discernment with the most important decisions in your life.
Income – For the majority of people learning how to earn, manage, spend and save money is an ongoing lifetime requirement. Money should be viewed as a tool. When used properly, it can provide opportunity, education, training, support and assistance to you, your family and countless other businesses and organizations that serve others around the world. For all the good money can do when used properly, it’s also responsible for much of the world’s havoc, destruction, corruption, violence, injustice and death.
Time - The single greatest resource that we all have the same amount of, no matter your position in life. Your time will determine the outcome for your life. Anything you ever do will require your time, and once it’s gone you can never get it back. You can tell everything you need to know about a person by how they spend their time and money.
Security – The sum total of learning how to master the other twelve Peace Benefits principles. This is the best method to obtaining the ultimate level of peace, health and happiness in your life.
I've been helping people think, look, and feel better for over thirty years. I got my professional start in the United States Air Force, where I conducted fitness assessments and personal training for pilots, military personnel, and their dependents. After leaving the military I opened and operated several health clubs, and later worked for Nautilus, the Army Navy Country Club, and Gym Source. After selling a fitness studio in the fall of 2019, I launched Peace Benefits in 2020.
I focus on helping people in three primary areas: emotional intelligence testing and training, personal training, and holistic wellness life coaching. I help my clients improve their holistic wellness through the Peace Benefits Dimensions of Wellness Model. I developed Peace Benefits after realizing there was a universal need for a more comprehensive model in helping people improve in all dimensions of wellness. I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds. My clients have ranged in age from 14 to 89. Regardless of your age or background, I'm committed to helping you reach your goals. I change mindsets to change behaviors and bodies.
I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Education from Wayland Baptist University, and both a Master's Degree in Public Administration, and a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management from George Mason University. I’m a Certified Life Coach and Certified Career Transitions Coach through the Coach Training Alliance, a Certified Personal Trainer and Behavior Change Specialist through the American Council on Exercise, a Certified Nutrition Coach through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and certified in the Emotional Quotient-Inventory EQ-i 2.0®, the world’s leading assessment tool used for evaluating and measuring emotional and social intelligence. I'm a former competitive bodybuilder, and won several titles in the 1990s, culminating with winning the middleweight division at the 1994 Mid-USA Championships.
