Lose Weight Without Counting Calories

May 13, 2022

Are you tired of counting calories obsessively and not losing weight? 

You aren’t alone in this seemingly endless battle. 

Decades have brought a consistent stream of diet fads that teach counting calories, measuring food, reading food labels, and living and breathing by trackers and apps are the only ways to slim down and love the body you are in. 

These methods may work for some for a short period of time; however, usually lead to creating a pattern of yo-yo dieting and an unhealthy fixation with food being either your source of joy or your source of anxiety. 

You can lose weight and keep it off without all of the tracking, measuring, and calorie counting when you learn to fully function within the amazing body God created for you. 

Stop Counting Calories, Start Embracing the Awesomeness of Your Body

Your body is an amazing creation. 

Yes, your body! 

God formed you in His image and breathed life into you. You carry the DNA of the mighty,...

How to Break Free from Emotional Eating

May 02, 2022

You can break free from the ties food has over your life by reclaiming your God-given identity and shedding light on the truth influencing your emotions. 

 

Emotions are powerful, that’s for sure. 

 

In the past, your emotions have been held responsible for lifting your mood or sending your mood crashing to the ground, all in one fell swoop. They’ve also been responsible for having a direct impact on your eating habits, the types of foods you crave, and your reaction to situations around you. 

 

Although your emotions are powerful, they don’t have the control many believe. With awareness and intention, your emotions can flourish into the tools God intended them to be. 

3 Truths About Emotional Eating 

 

Your Emotions are God-Given 

 

If you look around long enough you will find news articles and social media posts casting a dark shadow on emotions, as if they are something to be feared or avoided.

Apr 22, 2022

You can learn how to tell the difference between physical cravings and hunger for God by learning how to tune into six powerful scriptures. 

It’s late at night.

Everyone else is in bed and you have finally found yourself with something truly rare in your world … peace and quiet. 

Ahhhh. 

The time you have been waiting for all day long … time for you.

Master Weight Loss Mindset in 7 Days

Apr 08, 2022

“If you could just get down to a size 10 or 12 you’d be so drop-dead gorgeous we’d have to beat the guys off you with a baseball bat.” 

A friend shared this statement made to her when she was a young adult.

The person who said this to her was just repeating what she had been told. There had been a long history in this woman’s life of others telling her what the ideal woman should look like. She worked diligently in her own life to fit this expected mold and was naturally passing it along as “helpful” advice to my friend. 

My friend also shared her response to this “helpful” advice. 

“I sat there for a moment, not sure how to respond. Finally, I told her ‘if they don’t want me now - I don’t want them then,’” she shared. “Even though I responded with a lot of confidence, inside I was wondering if she and everyone else thought I was too ugly to be wanted.”

Spring Cleaning for the Soul: 3 Ways to Clean Your Mind this Spring

Apr 01, 2022

I have a confession … 

No, I haven’t taken a trip down the Home Shopping Network lane, but I DO subscribe to a quirky and fun cleaning channel on YouTube called Clean Freak & Germaphobe. 

So, here’s my confession … 

While watching one of their episodes they were testing a little steam cleaner and showing how effective it was at cleaning hard-to-clean messes.. By the end of that video clip I had already added that little steam cleaner to my cart and hit the purchase button. 

I’m not usually an impulse shopper, but watching that little machine steam away some pretty yucky dirt and grime was pretty convincing. 

Several days after my YouTube binging purchase had arrived, I steamed anything and everything in the house I could get to. 

Mind you, I had just cleaned the house from top to bottom prior to the steamer arriving, so I really thought it wouldn’t have a lot to do. 

Boy, was I wrong. 

I was completely...

3 Simple Steps to Strengthen Your Spiritual Mindset

Mar 25, 2022

I was in my late teens when I first heard the story of Mary and Martha. 

The Bible says that Jesus was in the town of two sisters and made his way to be their house guest.

Martha welcomed Jesus into their home and immediately began to serve her guests and take care of things that needed to be done around the house. 

Mary, instead of helping Martha with all of the duties, plopped down at the feet of Jesus and just started listening to him talk. 

I imagine Martha to have been hurrying around diligently trying to make her guests comfortable, preparing a meal and ensuring that everyone had fresh water to drink. 

As each minute passed by that Martha was bearing the full burden of host responsibilities, she became a little more bitter with every glance at her sister … just sitting there … doing nothing.

Eventually Martha had enough of her sister’s perceived laziness and turned to Jesus in pure frustration. 

“Lord, do you not care that my...
