Patricia's Story

The  Christian Message Coach and Creator of His Purple Thread™

Patricia Durgin is unusual. With no teaching degree she has taught over 5,000 sessions in business, church and community settings.

She didn’t attend seminary yet she’s taught the Bible alongside a pastor.

With only a high school diploma, she’s taught people with decades more education.

From 1980 until 2009, without a counseling degree, she helped thousands of adults in and from abusive families move closer to Christ.

Only God could have given her these unlikely opportunities.

 As a teenager, Patricia chased a young man
named David without ceasing. They've
enjoyed over 40 years of marriage.

Even though Patricia didn’t have a spiritually
healthy childhood, she and her husband
gifted their daughters with one.

Because her birth family moved often,
Patricia's schooling was sporadic, yet
she home-schooled both daughters
till their college years.

 

Only God could have given her these unexpected blessings.

Despite being reared without Him, Christ taught Patricia how to build a brand-new life, offering Himself as her holy foundation. (After all, He is the perfect teacher.)

Patricia didn’t merit this life. In His kindness, Jesus gave it to her. He made a way for your life to include blessings and opportunities, too, through a healthy relationship with Him.

Patricia weaves encouragement into every conversation–spoken or written–inspiring you to take a chance on God…again. With common sense and a splash of humor, she reminds you that He is for you, you can obey Him and He will make a way for you.

So if you’re unusual too, (or just “usual”), you’re in the right place. Your spirit will be renewed here, which always improves your writing and speaking.

Patricia and her husband David live near Atlanta. Each of their four children (two daughters and two sons-in-law) serve Christ in full-time ministry. Their four grandchildren are a delight.
