Jody Moore

Jody Moore

Life Coach and Better Than Happy Podcast Host

After having her first two kids, Jody Moore struggled with work/life balance, embracing motherhood, and liking herself. As an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints she felt guilty for not loving the role of mother and wife, and turned to life coaching for help. The transformation she experienced not only helped her at work and at home, it strengthened her testimony of Christ leading her to dive into learning the tools of coaching and to leave her position as a corporate leadership coach to launch her own coaching practice. Jody is certified through The Life Coach School and completed Master Coach Certification in 2018.

Today, as an LDS Life Coach, Jody has helped tens of thousands of people through her top-rated podcast Better Than Happy as well as her coaching membership program Be Bold. She has 4 children ages 8 – 17 and resides in Spokane, Washington with them, her husband, and their French bulldog Finn, mini cavapoo Milo, and cat Oscar.

Becoming a Transitional Character: Working with Generational Shame to Increase Personal Freedom, Autonomy, and Healthy Relationships

In working with people for the last 23 plus years I have developed a strong love for being with people-whether as individuals, as a couple or as a family-in a compassionate and containing way as they explore the strengths, struggles and variety of difficulties in their lives.  I work alongside you in developing increased clarity, acceptance and compassion for your individual, relational, and environmental experiences, and support you to become empowered with increased knowledge and adaptive skills so you can take an open and intentional approach in your life developing increased autonomy, connection and purpose.  I’m grateful and feel blessed as I get to support and witness people increase in their ability to cope with the multitude of life’s ongoing stressors, while creating greater joy, peace and happiness.
