Small Steps Lead To Big Wins


   This past year, I have found myself inching out onto the skinny branches, challenging myself to do the difficult soul work I need to do to be more powerfully present in my life and in the lives of those I love and serve. With the help of a mentor, I've grown and accomplished a lot. Now, I want to pass it on. I've developed a program to help others to do the soul work they need to grow their spiritual health. I call the program Spirit Strong and it's available here. Find more information here
    Finding the courage to grow my soul, my mindset, and my gratitude has enabled me to become the hero I needed in my life, and to give others the space and the tools they need to become the heroes they need to be in their lives. I would love to tell you about the ICU nurses about to break in the pandemic pressure that I am able to hold a safe space for. Or about a single mom who was able to forgive her ex and is building a life of joy and purpose for herself and her children. Or about Paul, who’s growing into a spiritual stronghold for his family as they struggle with the health of an infant grandchild. Or Grayson. Or Jeannie. Or so many others. But those aren't my stories to tell.
Are You Looking For a Hero In Your Life?

    The hero you need in your life stares back at you in the mirror every day. You have it in you to be the hero you need in your life and to build the life you want and love. I'm going to be straight with you - it's not easy work. It's simple, but it isn't easy. It requires you take a step each day. Many of the steps you take will be shaky, but they will lead you to a life you want to wake up and jump into each day. 
    I've taken these steps and I can help you take them, too. I don't know, honestly, how far I would have gone without my mentor encouraging me and challenging me and most importantly reminding me why I wanted to keep on the journey. 

  • Would you like to have more peace in your life?
  • Would you like to be firmly planted in the Love of God?
  • Would you like to be able to communicate with the Holy and sense that presence all around you?
  • Would you like to have the awareness and confidence to crush your goals?
  • Would you like to have improved relationships in your life and in your work?

   If you answered yes to any of these questions, take the first (shaky) step now by pressing the link below and you will be closer to being the hero you need in your life. It starts now. It's as simple as taking that first action

   Let's go for a walk!

Hello Friends!

Hi, my name is Melissa Ebken, and I'm so glad you found your way here. 

I am at home in the difficult spaces of peoples’ lives, willing to listen and to support those who work to grow themselves. I am a trained coach and have consulted with churches in conflict. Not your stereotypical minister, I embrace the Gospel with joy and laughter as I seek to help those around me grow in faith and understanding, always striving to leave people better than they came. An agent of wholeness, I create a safe space for people, especially those who have been marginalized, where they can understand how ridiculously loved and valued they are by God/Higher Power/Spirit, and to experience the difference that makes in life. 

I started the Pursuing Uncomfortable Podcast to share the stories of people who have faced life's most difficult challenges, to inspire you to lean into and overcome your own. It's helpful to know that you're not alone in your struggles and to see how others have navigated similar circumstances. You can listen to it here.

Here's what I can do for and with you.


  • Coaching - this is a one-time or ongoing supportive relationship focused on you and your goals and hopes for the future
