Darlene’s Story

No one can produce great things who is not thoroughly sincere in dealing with himself.

James R Lowell

Darlene Larson, founder of Hearts with a Purpose, coaches and inspires women to live out their life purpose. She is passionate to coach women that are stuck in toxic relationships to freedom to discover their life purpose.

Once upon a time Darlene was stuck. Painful life experiences had piled high. She shares, “I was starved for someone to listen to me, hear me, and help me connect the dots to my story. And then, I was coached.”

She knows all too well what can cause women to STOP thriving. Darlene’s life stories include deception, disappointments, betrayal, infertility, adoptions, abuse, home foreclosure, bankruptcy, among others. But God loves—to redeem, recover, recycle, restore and replenish!

Darlene’s midwestern roots run deep from being raised on a family farm. She holds a B.A. in education and taught for eighteen years. Her credentials as a coach include certification as a Professional Certified Life Coach, Life Purpose Coach®, Recovery Coach, Grief-loss Coach, a strategic 2Day Lifeplan coach and a  Coach Instructor for Life Purpose Coaching Centers International ®.

Teaching is so natural for Darlene, that speaking to large audiences of women is second nature. She is a Member of Life Purpose Coaching Center’s International Speaker’s Bureau.

What coaching offers?

Change lives. More action than idea. More now than then.

Darlene listens.

Coaching offers a woman the ability to voice her stories in a safe bully free zone.

Darlene hears a woman’s heart.

As a coach Darlene hears the gap between reality and the dream a woman has on her heart.

Darlene asks the tough questions.

A woman gives Darlene permission, as her coach, to dig into the stories of her life through question asking.

Darlene affirms truth back into a woman’s life.

As a woman speaks her stories Darlene sifts the truth out  and affirms her. For some women this maybe the first affirmation they have ever heard.

Darlene is a seed planter of life purpose. She sprinkles words of purpose and hope into a woman’s heart.

As a coach, she speaks hope filled words to inspire and empower women to step out and act on their life purpose.

Darlene is a vision caster.

She paints a word picture of what she hears from a woman’s heart. The woman then steps out towards it, one baby step at a time.
