I’m honored to introduce my new book, Fitness, Food & Faith. The past four months for me have been an intense training of health and fitness and how my faith is the core of both. God gave me a message to share, and I have been obedient (never perfect) to give that message with discernment, research and wisdom. I can think of no better way to introduce my book than to offer you my book’s concluding thoughts. I wrote from the heart, so that we as God’s Children would be blessed, encouraged and motivated. I hope it inspires every person who reads Continue reading
“I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night.” -Psalm 63.6 NLT Meditation has become such a confusing word in our culture that its meaning and purpose seem mysterious to many of us. However, meditation simply means a continued or extended thought and reflection. We can meditate on ourselves, on a television show, on homework, on our children, on our worries, doubts and insecurities. We can literally meditate on anything in this world—good or bad. The highest form of meditation we can achieve, however, is meditating on God. We can meditate on God because of Jesus’ sacrifice Continue reading
Why did God put the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden if He knew it would separate us from Him? Why did He seemingly lead us to failure? “And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” – Genesis 2.8-9
Here is the link to the video on my You Tube Channel. Are you carrying your dirty underwear for Christ? It’s not about staying obedient to a cause; it’s about staying obedient to Christ! “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done” (Luke 22.42).
God will roll down the window in our lives to remind us of His protection. “This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live” (Deuteronomy 30.19).
Don’t accept the bag of poop: Video Blog 5. “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” – 1 Corinthians 10.13
When we let go of our insecurities, doubts, fears and negative self-talk, we are better able to “Go out on a limb for Christ” and be obedient to His call! “Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.’” – Luke 19.9
Life is filled with “fake diamonds” and dead-ends, but they are directing us on God’s best path for our lives! “IN HIS HEART A MAN PLANS HIS COURSE, BUT THE LORD DETERMINES HIS STEPS.” Proverbs 16.9 NIV
My family just left a season of nitpicking—no, not for flaws or mistakes, but literally picking nits out of each other’s hair! My middle son received lice from a friend, and from there we all fell prey. The only person unaffected was my husband, so I assume lice don’t like gelled, short hair. To say this was one of my worst nightmares is an understatement. Not only do these small parasites freak me out (I won’t even look at their picture on the Internet,) they also cause so much havoc in people’s lives. We had to call family and friends.

We learn why Ruth was never allowed to be the worker of the fields that she would one day own. She went from being a beggar to being the master! See how waiting on God’s timing and allowing the Holy Spirit to do a work in your heart will promote you OWNER of the Promised Land that God has for you! “I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor” –Jesus (John 4.38 NIV).
