Hello, I’m Blaze Pearson….
I am the owner and coach here at Torch Family Leadership. I’m also a husband, a father, and a step father in a house with 5 children that range in age from 6 to 16 so honing family leadership skills is not only a passion in my life…it is a requirement.
Years ago I found myself in an unhappy marriage with two very young children. I loved being a Daddy but was completely lost in my marriage and I had no clue what to do about it. I tried to salvage the marriage with all of my might but I simply had no clue what to do or how to do it. I became bitter, controlling and overall just an angry person to anyone outside of my children. Needless to say that marriage came to an end and most of my world crumbled before my eyes.
I found myself divorced and heartbroken while taking care of 2 very young children. I wasn’t completely sure how I was going to make it but I was damned sure that I was going to give my all…so I did. The first few years were indescribably difficult. I lost sleep, my job and my identity was stolen during that time. I found myself not only trying to figure out the ins and outs of single parenting but also looking for a new career. I basically felt worthless. I relied on my faith in God, my 2 kids, and my insatiable thirst for knowledge to get me through that time in life.
After reading book after book about how to be a better me and a better father I started to take major strides. I started to become a much more self aware father that went from struggling to make my kids act right to understanding how to make them feel right. I started to find ways to raise strong, healthy kids and not just keep them alive. I figured out how to smile again and so did they. We became a very happy little family.
During those years I realized that there was a serious lack of resources for fathers and single fathers….or just men in general that needed help. There seemed to be many more options for women and single mothers but virtually no where to turn as a struggling father. It bothered me and left me feeling a bit isolated. I knew other men in my same situation and I felt sad for them as well. It seemed like time to do something about this.
I decided then and there that I would devote my life to changing that! I started studying harder and reading more, I mentored other men and pursued an education in coaching. I have now completed the CPLC program at Christian Coach Institute as well as gone through the Group Coaching Mastery program at CCI as well.
Now I am offering up all that I’ve learned and experienced to help other men navigate life, marriage and fatherhood. Torch Family Leadership is here to make sure that men have a resource to turn to while trying to understand how better to lead their family.
