Frances Gardening



You are meant to shine. Your light is your life’s purpose, your talents, your curiosities, and your calling. If you’re lost, stuck, stressed, or just menh, you don’t have to be. Your answers are within you. I can help you find them.

I am a certified Wayfinder Life Coach and a Martha Beck master coach in training. I’m also a writer, speaker, artist, and several other things, and my heart and soul shine through them all–even the ones I’m not that good at. Which is sort of the point. I hope to inspire humbly. What I am good at is guiding you to your light and bringing your light to the world. And guess what: Who you really want to be, is who you really are.

want to talk?

Me too. Let’s connect for a free consult call. And trust that wherever you are on your path is where you are supposed to be. You’re right on time.

Life Coaching

See below… and take a 5-minute quiz now


Life Coaching

*Or tell me any area of your life you’d like to work on or gain insight into. Or do you just have a vague feeling that you are somehow missing your mark? That there is more meant for you? Or is there too much in your life and you’d like to simplify, clarify, and come into alignment with your essential and true self. The “living space tool” is a favorite of mine, but it is just one of many ways to gain practical yet powerful insight into what makes you who you are and how to get to who you want to be. Setting your intention is the first step. You don’t need to find the way, just a way. Read more about wayfinding and life coaching here, or Email me and/or, take me up on this… SPECIAL OFFER: Take my free, 5-minute living space quiz, and I’ll do a complimentary 30-minute personal interpretation with you via phone or Zoom. It’s fun and it’s free.




Frances' ArtworkPainting is such a treat for me. I work mostly in oil and watercolor, and I do sell my work. You can see more of my work here and occasionally on my Instagram I also host painting workshops taught by highly respected professionals who unlike me really know what they are doing.
