About Christina & Personal Growth for All™
Personal Growth for All™ is a free, mission-based personal growth website, launched on October 12, 2021, and created by Christina Renée Joubert.
The purpose of this website is to provide people with a free and safe place to ask hard questions; probe deep, painful and provocative personal, relationship, and societal issues; and receive life-changing spiritual mindset shifts and strategies that can help them to reframe their past, transform their present, and change the trajectory of their relationships and lives now and for generations to come.
At the core of Christina’s mission, and all of her work, is one fundamental belief: Personal growth is a right, not a privilege, and the knowledge, wisdom, tools, and strategies that can help should be accessible and expressible to/for/by all.
And, Christina doesn’t care who you are, how much money you make, what you believe, who you voted for, where you live, what you’ve done, or who you’re trying to become. She believes that you deserve to break free from the circumstances that keep you stuck in pain, hardship, hate, anger, negativity, insecurity, resentment, shame, and fear. You deserve to be free. Period. End of story.
If you believe that mental, emotional and spiritual growth should be accessible and expressible to/for/by all, please support the mission by engaging our free services, purchasing our products, and telling the people you know and love about us.
We sell tangible goods to cover the cost of making personal growth financially accessible to all.
Christina Renée Joubert spent the first 42 years of her life overcoming hardships, beating the odds, and cracking the code to a life full of self-love, self-worth, inner peace, and never-ending joy and now she shares all she’s learned with anyone who’s ready to learn with her.
As part of Christina’s sharing, she brings her revolutionary spiritual mindset strategies to the masses through her mission-based, online, interactive website Personal Growth for All™ and her boutique mission-based online store Teaching the World to Love™. In doing so, she tackles some of the most provocative issues of our time with authenticity, vulnerability, deep sharing, compassion, grace, and love for all — dealing with everything from interpersonal relationship problems, to self-worth/self-love issues, to political upheaval, white supremacy, slave-mindset, and racial tension issues.
Christina’s work is truly revolutionary and like a breath of fresh air for she thinks differently from most; sees life, struggle, pain, and hardship through a spiritual, purpose-filled lens; and she passionately, compassionately, and powerfully calls out for everyone the truth and opportunity that’s lurking and hiding behind any and all feelings of insecurity, judgment, blame, shame, hate, anger, resentment, struggle, powerlessness, pain, and fear.
The spiritual truths and teachings that Christina so intricately weaves into her reframing strategies, and learned herself from the school of hard knocks, help people to take back their power to be free so that they can learn how to live in peace, love, joy, and harmony as a normal, predictable way to be — fulfilling their destiny.
Prior to launching Personal Growth for All™ and rebranding Teaching the World to Love™ as a mission-based lifestyle store, Christina was a spiritual life coach for private clients and before that she was an institutional advisor for 17.5 years and a vice president at the world’s largest privately held, independent insurance brokerage firm.
Christina is also an ordained spiritual-interfaith minister, the author of When Soulmates Unite – Learning to Love Ourselves from the People Who Can Hurt Us the Most and a proud mommy to a beautiful little boy. When Christina is not teaching, mentoring, or writing she is coaching her son’s baseball teams, homeschooling her little one, learning something new, working out, hiking, laughing, loving, praying, meditating, talking with God and walking with God in every second of every day to whomever and wherever He may lead her.
Hello, Christina here. 🙂 I wanted to tell you a bit about my personal story so you would know why I created Personal Growth for All™ and Teaching the World to Love™ and why I’m driven to do what I do. My story, like yours, has twists and turns and many unexpected events – all of which have contributed to the creation of these brands and add texture to the fabric of my mission, guiding principles and life.
The short version of how Personal Growth for All™ and Teaching the World to Love™ got started, starts with two seeds that were planted in me when I was around five years old.
The first seed was planted on the day my dad told me that my mom and my grandmother didn’t love me and that they were embarrassed and ashamed of me because of the color of my skin. My dad’s belief in this was real and it was raw and he reinforced his belief often, telling me with compassion and conviction that he wished things were different but he would tell me that no matter how hard I tried . . . I could not win the love and acceptance of the two women who were supposed to love and accept me just because I was born. (There’s a bigger story here, btw, and not everything was at it seemed. More to come on this part of my story as it’ll serve as an important illustration of what can happen when we allow other people’s stories/truths/perspectives to become our reality.)
The second seed was planted, around the same time, when people began to realize that I had this natural-born, God-given spiritual ability to take away a person’s pain – making them feel better – just by listening to them.
So as my sense of self, love, trust, and worth was being stripped away from me (perhaps unnecessarily) — God was simultaneously giving me the gift of taking other people’s pain away and making them feel better. As such, I began to identify my worth based on how I made others feel. If I could take their pain away, I felt lovable and thus worthy of being loved. If I could anticipate their pain and lead them in another direction, “protect them” from the pain — even better. If I did not, I felt ashamed, hurt, alone, afraid, and like I wanted to hide; I also lost love and I felt unworthy of being loved.
As a child, when someone refused to change, I felt the burden of continuing to carry their pain – because I didn’t understand that another person’s pain wasn’t mine to carry. And I didn’t have the practical knowledge yet on how to release my attachment to their pain – how to truly serve – so I created unhealthy attachments. Lots of them.
These unhealthy attachments coupled with my lack of love for myself and lack of healthy boundaries, led me to a life of addictions (six of them!), anxiety, escapes, fear, dysfunctional relationships, and pain.
And then in 2012, when I was 33 years old, I left my marriage with a 10-month old baby in my arms vowing to change my life. I didn’t know what change would look like or feel like, but I knew there had to be “more”. I knew I couldn’t have been born with such profound abilities and gifts only to let them wallow in a sea of loneliness, emptiness, fear, isolation, addiction, shame, and despair.
I had to find myself and my light.
I had to find my self-worth and learn how to keep it, even if others didn’t see it.
I had to learn how to love myself and learn how to begin treating myself like I was worthy of being loved — even if no one else did.
I had to learn new ways to comfort and soothe myself so that I could end all my addictions and no longer need all my dysfunctional patterns of escape.
I had to learn how to break my unhealthy cycles, habits, and patterns and retrain my brain to not just live – waking each day to survive – but thrive.
I had to learn how to turn all my pain into my superpower and change the trajectory of my lineage and my life.
I had to learn how to turn all of my darkness into light.
I had to.
And I did just that.
And then on October 12, 2021, after nine solid years of hard as* work, I launched Personal Growth for All™ so that I could teach others how to do the same.
You see, I believe with my entire heart, body, and soul that you deserve to have a resource that doesn’t just talk about what change could look like or feel like for you. But, rather, you deserve a resource who has walked the path and will give you the real-life, practical, tips, tools, tricks, and strategies that can lead you to the self-love, self-worth, and self-confidence you so righteously deserve. And, you deserve a resource who passionately and honorably helps you create the change you want to see; a resource like me.
My hope and prayer is that the thoughts and methodologies that God has taught me and God brings through me will help you clear through the clutter and blocks that prevent you from living the life you desire to live. It is my passionate and undying belief that no one should have to go through life feeling alone, unworthy and unloved. And, it is my unyielding and everlasting conviction that with the right access, equity, information, tools, and strategies everyone has the opportunity to go through life feeling free and living in peace, love, joy, and harmony as a normal, predictable way to be — fulfilling their destiny.
I’m thankful that my journey has taught me the lessons I needed to learn so that I may be of the greatest service to you; it is such an honor to serve you.
Thank you for trusting me and thank you for being you.
There is meaning in everything and everyone. If you search for it, the true meaning can and will set you free.
With love, always,
P.S. A few years before my grandmother passed, she broke her neck in a car accident. After that, her perspective on people of color changed and she started attending an all black Baptist church and became the best friend and sole caretaker of a blind African American man; unfortunately, she died before I had the chance to get to know her. And as for my mom . . . she is one of my biggest supporters and I cannot tell you how much I love her, how much she loves me, and how grateful I am that she’s my mother; I thank God for her every day.

Christina’s spiritual teachings and mindset mastery abilities are ones she’s learned from the school of hard knocks and lives by herself. Every day, in every situation, she is constantly turning the mirror on herself and teaching herself how to overcome and/or transform the feelings, energies, and experiences being presented to her into something she can learn, heal, and grow from. In other words, everything she teaches she lives by herself so that she’s not just talking the talk and giving other people directions, but rather she’s walking the walk, and grabbing people’s hands, so that she can show them the way.
As a result, Christina’s spiritual teachings and mindset mastery abilities not only help her as an individual, but they also allow her to help others to learn how to turn traditional, paralyzing beliefs, behaviors, and patterns on their head — so that they can break free from them. And, her spiritual mindset tools and strategies give others (herself included) a new, refreshed, empowered way to look at the same old problems and the same old dysfunctional patterns that show up in life — so that we can change them.
Christina’s spiritual teachings and strategies also help people to easily and effortlessly turn negative experiences into opportunities to learn, heal, and grow; negative thoughts into powerfully uplifting inner change; and emotional pain into the fuel that powers one’s personal growth and expansion.
The solutions that come through Christina are practical; inspired by daily life, each person’s daily conflicts; and the daily desire we all have to love and be loved.
Dedicated students of Christina’s spiritual teachings often learn over time:
- The strategies and tools required in order to implement healthy boundaries, self-love, self-worth, self-esteem, self-respect, healthy habits, confidence, etc.
- How to cultivate purpose, inspiration, love, creativity, and joy — from every person, feeling, experience, and ounce of darkness or pain.
- How to consciously retrain their brains to create new patterns, habits, and cycles to replace the old, worn-out ones that no longer serve them to hold onto
- How to overcome everything, always, and be “better off” as a result.
- How to turn their pain into their superpower and their darkness into light — shifting their perspectives, their experiences, and their lives.
Christina utilizes her spiritual mindset mastery skills, her spiritual teachings and abilities, and her own life experiences to help people change the trajectory of their lives and their lineage so that they can take back their power to be free and learn how to live in peace, love, joy, and harmony as a normal, predictable way to be — fulfilling their destiny.
