Hi, I'm Steve, and I can help.

I created Capable Life to help leaders and parents:

  • Get relief from pressure.
  • Diagnose anxiety sources in themselves and their people.
  • Encounter God in profound ways while leading.

I am a Spiritual Care Professional in the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education. I hold Sixteen hundred hours of supervised ministry in CPE and an Masters degree focusing on Family Systems Theory and Theology

You can be a Connected, Aware, Present, ABLE (CAP-ABLE) human in the work place and home place.

Lower reactivity. Increase connection.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most use Capable Life like a self paced class. They watch a 10 minute video each week, work the discussion and zooms. This approach takes anywhere from 20 – 60 minutes per week, including discussion and zooms.

Others use Capable Life like a reference library. They ‘pull a module off the shelf’ as situations arise, they join zooms only when they need.

Absolutely! Capable life has parents, business people, medical professionals, missionaries and pastors.

These tools were born from a theory called “Family Systems Theory” and can greatly benefit anyone who deals with home or work place dynamics.

We have 4 different coaches that provide a zoom once a month on either Mondays or Wednesdays.  Since we have a global audience, we provide both a morning and evening zoom option ranging from 9-11am MST and 2-6pm MST

No. Capable Life is legally designed for a single use license per subscription. Many teams sign their group up and assign videos for members to watch and then host their own team discussions.

It is common to spend years carrying triggers and pressures. This theory is not a magic bullet, but because it is relatively unknown and quite revolutionary in its approach, many people experience early breakthrough and relief.

We have done the extra work of building a path of tools and concepts anyone can walk. Of course, what is also true is that after a couple of quick wins, the deeper, longer work is ahead to experience profound, long term change.


Proper one on one or family therapy is a state licensed science. This program is an integration of psychological theory, change theory and theology. There are many situations (PTSD, G.A.D, Clinical Depression) that go beyond the scope of Capable Life. We help you manage anxiety that is generated from leadership and parenting challenges and pressures. We teach a model of ‘Systems Theory’ that can revolutionize your wellbeing, but we would not encourage you to see CL as a replacement for licensed therapy.

Capable Life takes the privacy of our members very seriously, as a result we do our best to ensure their privacy. All our tools and discussion forums are password protected and we utilize a web hosting provider who actively monitors the health and security of the site.

Some members, for their own reasons, choose a username that keeps their identity private.

We provide discounted coaching to CL members. Once you log in, you will see a menu item for coaching. You can submit a request for group or one on one coaching.

You will have a member dashboard of categories: video modules, zoom meetings, masterclasses, PDF downloads. The heart of CL is a series of video modules made up of brief videos 8 – 12 minutes each.

YES! Unlike many memberships, once you have been a member of Capable Life for one year, you retain ongoing access to all modules you completed while you were a paying member. We will be here as a reference library for you long after you’ve paid.

Capable Life isn’t necessarily for everyone. Monthly members can cancel anytime. Annual members can cancel for a complete refund within 30 days of joining.


16 modules with self assessments to track progress and help you practice tools. Once you are a member for a year, you keep access to all completed modules for the life of this website.
