Welcome to Righteous Oaks

Meeting you where you are,

to help you get where you want to be.

Every individual has a God-given purpose. The realization of this purpose is essentially, the realization of our maximum potential. Adversity can hinder–or even prevent–living with purpose and therefore, achieving our potential. Our ability to overcome adversity depends, to a great degree, on what we believe. Free your mind of limiting beliefs and begin your journey towards living your purpose today.

To promote freedom in life and liberation from limitations by teaching skills to live. To empower you to bring about the positive change you seek in your life. To walk with you, on your path of restoration to the Oak of Righteousness you were created to be.

The focus of skills to live is to help develop and/or enhance a core belief system that will:

  1. Empower each individual to meet, overcome, and grow through adversity
  2. Support the continuation of this ongoing growth process
  3. Provide guidance in understanding who you are and why you are here
