"The coaching group that Alan curated for us provided a communal slowing that allowed us to see what God is doing. I learned how to pay attention to God’s kingdom narrative in my every day, vocational life. Alan provided practical ways to actually be an unhurried leader, a person who is present, non-frantic and attuned to what God already has in motion. Walking at a similar pace with God is much more enjoyable. The quality of people in our group added greatly to this experience and to have like-minded leaders slowing down together was incredibly life-giving."

John P. Freeman
Director of Grace Discipleship

"What a blessing it has been to share life with these wonderful women as we notice, discern and respond to our thoughts in community. I was grateful to find others in our group who shared similar challenges and desires for transformation. Gem guided us through our sessions with love, grace and humor as we pursued spiritual growth together. My tool chest has been packed to overflowing with soul nurturing resources I can use consistently in my daily walk with God. I leave with a better understanding how, with God's help, I can shift my thinking and be more at peace with life's peaks and valleys."

Jane Couperus
Financial Counselor

"I work with young adults and have seen firsthand how challenging it is to live an unhurried life. Many of us were taught that it’s all about what you do, what you accomplish. So, from a personal point a view, I have enjoyed the work of Unhurried Living. From a professional perspective, I think that it might be some of the most important work of the next generation. To engage people in character formation, not competency creation."

Charles Stoicu

"The thing about Gem is that she is what she teaches. Present, attentive, an amazing listener. She doesn’t talk at us, but speaks as a fellow traveler with us and she has the kind of wisdom and humility of one familiar with rocky paths. I love how deeply she sees and loves every single woman in the room, and is so naturally intentional about affirming each and every one. It’s crystal clear that her life has prepared her for this work."

Linda Parisi
Medical Professional

"The Unhurried Leader Coaching Group has been a place to process my workaholic tendencies. I’ve been given a perspective that is far more comprehensive and meaningful than merely implementing a few different strategies. I’ve seen that I need to change the mindset that is driving my behavior. I can actually live in the grace of God and allow Jesus to set my pace. I need to prayerfully cultivate that posture day in and day out."

Jeb Shore

"Retreats with Alan & Gem Fadling have provided a sacred space to pull away and step into a facilitated solitude of “unhurried” time to listen and reflect in God’s presence with a blank agenda. I inevitably emerge with a refreshed soul, a gladness of heart, deeper love for the One who invites us to ever deeper intimacy, and often surprisingly – a clarity of vision for what I need to do next in providing leadership in my place of vocational calling."

Carol Taylor
President, Evangel University
