One -on-One Coaching

Dorinda says, “My 1-on-1 coaching is a “Done For You” profile but you also get guidance with opening lines, messaging and responses, first date do’s and don’ts, hype-man advice,  and style advice. I also include a self-care course that brings out your confidence with dating.”  (8 Weeks of guidance)

I wasn’t getting a lot of matches with my social media dating apps. A friend of mine suggested  NXTConnection.  I was unsure about it- but thought, why not give it a try.  I met with Dorinda for my one on one consult. She was very friendly and we bonded over a wide range of conversation and topics.  Little did I know, she was focused on who I was as a person.  She would later show me I was not my natural self in my profile.  We went over things step by step starting with my pictures, written description, and my dating goals.

Overall, My matches have increased since using NXTConnection. I highly recommend at bare minimum, the consultation.   J.R.

Here’s a sample of Dorinda’s advice on PROMPTS:

Some dating apps have a feature called prompts.
Prompts are conversation starters and get-to-know-you nugget questions that an app such as @hinge provides. Prompts also are additional knowledge into who you are on top of just a biography.
An example of a prompt can be: A random thought I had this morning. . . . .
A good prompt on Hinge can inspire good creative answers as well as responses from potential suitors. An unpopular opinion can stir up good conversation and banter. A good prompt can invite an opening to be random, quirky, unique, insightful, bold, or humble if done correctly.
Basically prompts are ‘get to know me better’ questions before even using your swipe on a person. To that I say,  “Bring on the prompts!”

Testimonials from Annie

I heard about Dorinda through a friend who heard her give an elevator speech about her business and explain how she helped people go into online dating successfully. I love to date and want to meet my person but dreaded the thought of even writing a bio or learning to use a dating app. I felt like any attempt would be canned and corny but meeting guys wasn’t going well either.  My friend recommended I at least do the 15 min free consult and see if we could even work together. Dorinda was bubbly and cheerful and I got excited as I caught her enthusiasm. I tried to be very blunt and tell her exactly what I was looking for and she took it all in stride. She was excited and already had recommendations of apps that might fit me best. Over the next 5 weeks, I had weekly meetings with her as I wrote her a wishlist, talked about past relationships, and did homework to make my profile the best it could be (more photos!) One thing that both surprised me and I appreciated was this was much more about me then I thought. Dorinda focused on what I believed about myself and made me work through the lies that directed who I dated. She set me up with a bomb profile on 2 apps that look so good! Thank you for that huge push of courage, know-how and reminding me I’ve more than got this!   Annie

Review: Daring Devotion Christian Mission Devotional

A Christian missions devotional book

Daring Devotion: A 31-Day Journey with Those Who Lived God’s Promises

I highly recommend this Christian devotional!

“For thirty-one days, step back in time and see how God worked in and through men and women like you. Read their stories. Hear their own words. Feel their heartbeat. Experience their struggles. Get closer to their God. Discover the source of their strength in the promises of God’s Word.

This devotional book is a gateway to spiritual growth through the truths of God’s Word and the examples of those who lived God’s promises. A. W. Tozer wrote, “Next to the Holy Scriptures the greatest aid to the life of faith may be Christian biography.” Daring Devotion taps into the power of truth and testimony. This book will enrich both your personal time with God and your family’s devotional time. Author: M.R. Conrad”

Christian Devotional Reviews

Review from Jim below: This book reveals numerous hidden gems of Biblical truths lived out through the lives of many missionaaries who served the Lord without reservation. These true stories, combined with related Scriptures, will encourage the heart, inform the mind, and challenge the will to serve the Lord. Having been personally affected, I plan to use this during my famiily devotion time in addition to my personal time with the Lord. As a pastor I also plan to encourage God’s people to read this as well!

Will this book stir your heart like it did mine?

For me personally, the letter by John McCarthy speaking of abiding in Christ was particularly refreshing. We need to let God take care of our sins, stop struggling and ABIDE in Christ.  Isn’t it wonderful that God has given His Holy Spirit to us to help us as we serve Christ and seek to live for Him? I think so!

#CancelNetflix: I Apologize. Do you agree with my reasons?


I have joined the #cancelNetflix bandwagon.

If Netflix loses subscribers perhaps that it will send a message against sex trafficking, pedophilia, and the exploitation of women. But I regress. I need to apologize to my family and readers first.
I’m Sorry. I’m really sorry. I should’ve canceled Netflix long before this. Please forgive me.
  • I knew better.
  • I know better.
  • I try to apply the Bible to my life– but in this area, I had not set a good example of “learning not the ways of the world.”
  • I have not been a good example of “Be ye holy for I am holy.” or “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.”
  • or “I will set no wicked thing before my eyes.”
  • I have not been matching up what I say I believe with what I do.
  • Please forgive me. I’m going to do better.
