Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

Our goal is to educate and coach women on healthy, loving and fulfilling mother-daughter relationships. From the day we became a family, Elizabeth, Danielle, and Melissa have been a team. Together, we have experienced challenge and heartache, joy and celebration. Throughout it all, we have maintained an honest, caring, open relationship with one another. We have experienced times of anger, jealousy, and sadness just like any other family, yet we have maintained a deep faith in the love we have for one another. Our intention with this radio show is to share honestly and openly our experiences in the hopes that it may help you grow into the honesty and openness of whom you truly are.

Elizabeth Lutz, Danielle Schoenecker, and Melissa Schoenecker

Elizabeth raised her children, Danielle and Melissa, as a single parent in Minnesota. With the knowledge that they would always support each other, each went their separate ways to pursue their dreams and welcome their next steps in the World. Soon after, they all separately found their way to sunny California, drawn to a remarkable and groundbreaking program where they received a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology. Melissa and Elizabeth also have an emphasis in Consciousness, Health, and Healing.

Elizabeth Lutz holds a JD, is a Certified Professional Coach and a member of the International Coaching Federation. She uses her humor, compassion and direct knowing to help bring out the best in others. Elizabeth’s commitment to growth helps her facilitate others to live into the relationship they have always dreamed of through making decisions from a place of loving neutrality and acceptance.

Danielle Schoenecker amazingly juggles raising her one-year old son while working as a Project Manager for a University. She believes in the ability of anyone to create positive, healthy relationships with family and friends, and most importantly, dedicating time for personal growth with oneself!

Melissa Schoenecker works alongside Danielle serving as the Registrar of the University. She does her best to begin and end each day in Gratitude, Love and Joy, believing in the beauty of everything. She maintains that if she can laugh about it tomorrow, why not today?
