Gary Patton

People Development Coach to Christians
Hi! I'm Gary Patton, Canada's People Development Guy. 

My Life Purpose is to coach wo(men) in be-coming all that God designed them to be-come using the Spiritual Gifts and life experiences which Holy Spirit has given me. 

I also enjoy hanging out with my wife and extended family, including 4 Grandkids, reading, riding my bike, writing articles and walking in the woods nearby, plus along the beach of Lake Ontario. You will find my reviews of some of the Christian and other books I've read on Goodreads at .

I also acquired the habit of reading food labels while God was having me and my wife recover from separate, near-death experiences. You can read about our miracles of healing and a bit about our spiritual journey at .

You'll discover my full Visual Profile at and some of my S-M-A-R-TTips™ at

My heart's desire would be to become a conversation partner in any relationship we develop here.

Blessings and shalom!
