WHO I AM
My name is Mariah Crater. I currently live at Lake Mohawk in Malvern, Ohio with my Husband Kevin Crater and our 4 children, 2 dogs and 2 cats. My husband and I have been married since August 2005. My husband has been a children’s minister since 2007. We have ministered in the same church since that time. I currently work full-time as Executive Assistant at Consumers National Bank and coach 2 to 3 nights a week. Together Kevin and I have also been very active in our local church camp and our local community. We have been Foster Parents in Ohio and have adopted 2 of our 4 children through the foster care system. The idea of Whisper Love originated with my childhood memories of my mother. I was profoundly impacted by her wisdom, love of visual illustrations and her love of Jesus. She was graceful and eccentric. I also say, that if you could combine Julie Andrews, Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett you would have my mother. My mom’s name was Tarie Anderson, she passed away from cancer at the age of 57 when I was 22 years old. She loved calligraphy, blaring music and hugging people. She taught me how to love scripture and to seek out God’s wisdom. I miss her every day.
I have heart for working with clients experiencing the pain of broken or lost relationships with family and friends. I partner with them in an environment of hope, trust and comfort with the intention of restoration. As a certified Life and Growth Coach I bring my personal experience of loss and a passion to help people start over again and to gain the peace of mind and the support of solid relationships with loved ones. We all need relationships, sometimes in order for us to have rich and fulfilling ones, we need to look at conflict with fresh perspective and have solid support and accountability. Coaching provides these key elements in a safe environment. I am committed to providing the Christian love and acceptance needs to allow the client to take responsibility and have accountability to make the changes he or she wants to make in their own life.
I have a double certification in Christian Coaches (CCS) and Growth Coaches (LLC) from the Christian Coaching School with Jennie Turton and I am a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and Christian Coaching Network.
