The Family Greenhouse has given me tools and tips that has SAVED my relationships and my marriage. Their life coaching is better than I've ever experienced. I encourage everyone to go The Family Greenhouse and not let any cost stop them from thriving in their own relationships. It is all well worth it!
I recently had the special opportunity of completing The Family Greenhouse's Relationship Coaching training program, conducted by Scott and Abigail Doust. Having met Scott and Abigail earlier in the year I knew them to be passionate and gifted professionals, so my expectations going into the training were pretty high. Well, I was not disappointed! Scott and Abigail's training approach was fun, energetic, very insightful and also challenging. They introduced me and my fellow students to a wide variety of cutting edge relationship topics and leading authors. But, I found the best part of the training to be the hands on coach training that we did both in the class time as well as outside of class with our fellow trainees. Scott and Abigail demonstrated the Christian Coaching model and then gave us the chance to practice it ourselves. They also introduced us to several wonderful relationship workshops that I look forward to using with small groups in both church and business settings. I would highly recommend The Family Greenhouse to anyone wanting to learn and grow as a Life/Relationship Coach! Tom H
I was a professional making a vocational transition to Christian Life Coaching, looking for a certification training experience to provide me the necessary skills and confidence to step into this new direction.
Based on a recommendation from a friend, I sought out Scott and Abigail, initially seeking confirmation of the "fit" of Christian Life Coaching for me. In the process, I learned that they also provide the necessary certification training! I was in!
Having now completed Family Greenhouse Relationship Certification training, I am pleased to say that my objectives have been met. I feel much more confident in executing the disciplines and competencies involved with life coaching. Scott and Abigail's competence as coaches and trainers, and their professionalism, were on display throughout the course. And it was fun!
I am thankful for the huge investment they made in me, and the other students, to help prepare us to more confidently fulfill God's calling to help others grow and nurture healthy relationships!
My wife and I came to Scott and Abigail during a really difficult time in our lives based on the recommendation of a friend. We had been in marriage counseling before and like many couples, we experienced the trials and challenges of marriage in this day and age. We stopped counseling when we relocated to McKinney and thought we were doing fine only to find that satan would again attack our family and our marriage. After failing on our own,we decided to seek help from The Family Greenhouse. We enrolled in couples coaching and immediately felt connected to Scott and Abigail. They walked us through a very difficult time in our marriage helping us refocus on God and each other. They helped us find ways to reconnect with each other and with our kids. Scott and Abigail's coaching was direct and still hear-felt. It was challenging at times and yet still filled with the type of caring appreciation that I don't think you can find just anywhere. We are eternally grateful for all that they have done in our lives so far and know that we have coaches for life as we continue down the path God has led us. Life is still a day to day challenge, but isn't it that way for all of us. If you find you need help we are confident that The Family Greenhouse is a place you can turn to and see results. We surely did.
I just completed The Family Greenhouse's 18 week Relationship Coach Training and it was fantastic! This course grew my knowledge and confidence in Christian Coaching while being down to earth, fun and applicable. The skills, tools, and resources I walked away with are invaluable and I am eager to put them to use as I help others!
My husband and I LOVE Scott & Abigail. We attend the same church and I had been to a couple of their seminars prior to starting couple's counseling with them. My husband and I had separated and we were at a very desperate place in our marriage. I was referred to Abigail by a few other women at my church and I contacted her not knowing what to expect. She was so supportive and encouraging from my first phone call with her. I met with her a few times individually and my husband met with Scott. We then started meeting - all 4 of us - to start the couples portion of our sessions. My husband and I have been to marriage counseling in the past, but never where we met with another couple. I absolutely LOVE this format! It's great to get a perspective from another Christian couple and to hear things from a husband & wife versus just a single individual. My husband and I are no longer separated thanks to the restoring power of God and I truly believe that He put the Dousts in our life for a reason. We are still going to counseling with them on a regular basis and I look forward to seeing what else God has planned for us.
We flew to TX from Ohio to attend a marriage retreat. It was the perfect balance of reflection, discussion and time to put ideas into action. It was a huge turning point in our marriage. We arrived on empty and left feeling full of hope and a real plan to see success in our marriage. Three years later, we still see results and still apply ideas we learned.
Family Greenhouse is genuine, has real people who have dealt with real stuff in their own relationships. Simply sharing life with others and helping us as a couple grow closer.

Abigail has helped me tremendously through a difficult time in life. I thank God for her and ability, wisdom and strength that he has given her. She makes me feel good about myself. She will assist me with getting my life back.
I learned how to communicate when a situation is hard to discuss.
It has helped me in my family relationship, but also when I need to discuss something with a coworker.
