for the rest of your life


do people flat-line during the second half of their life, while others flourish and soar?

Many who intentionally engage midlife make their second half their best half.


making life better is not easy. If it was, you would have done it by now.

Here is a 5 minute video offering some clarity about midlife and the potential of flourishing.


There are many reasons why this stage in your life could be the most productive.

CREST is, by far, the best leadership training I have ever been involved in. It is not just informational, but transformational. I am changing – thank God!

Jeff Germo, BC

During CREST God gave me two things: a mirror and a compass - a mirror to see myself with new eyes at this stage in my life’s journey, and a compass to show me the way forward. Both are essential at mid-life and through CREST I found them.
