I am wife, mother to three, weight loss and life coach, RN, and an excited Jesus Christ believer!
You'll most likely find me at home with my kiddos and husband exploring outdoors, playing games, or snuggling together. My favorite thing to do is wrap up in a blanket and read. But I try to jump at chances to get out of my comfort zone. Oh, and I love to let my creative juices flow by finding fresh new ways to organize, freshen-up, or redecorate my home.
But for far too long, I didn't feel good about who God made me. I struggled with body image, self-confidence, doubt, and a lack of joy for life.
It hit me after my third child that I was not an example for my family, friends, community, and especially my children of how to live in FREEDOM and LOVE through Christ.
So, I did what all of us do.
I looked at the world to feel better.
I went on diets. I read books. I exercised more. I tried the latest supplement.
But in the end, I just want back to my old ways. Nothing seemed to LAST.
I felt like I was drowning in the physical weight, the weight of my guilt, the struggles of everyday life, and the fear I was just a big mistake.
But I'm not. And neither are you. God doesn't make mistakes.
But, I still make A LOT of mistakes.
I doubt and worry. I get upset. I overeat and reach for the ice cream instead of my bible.
What I really want, though, is to live out God's purpose for my life with joy, peace, and grace.
That's what I consistently focus on now.
How can I treat my body as a temple, renew my mind to align with the Spirit, and transform my lifestyle so that it shines Christ's light?
For the past four years, that's what I've consistently taken action towards.
God gave me a big dose of Truth. I now realize the REAL problem.
The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; (Romans 8:6)
Learning how to manage my thinking and choosing the Spirit's truths changed my life. Not just my weight, but my everyday happiness and joy.
Life isn't such an overwhelming struggle anymore.
I have the confidence to live life fully and joyfully.
Not only that, but step out boldly in faith to walk the path God had set out before me.
Now, I am blessed to be able to help other women in the same spot I was.
The tools I've used overcoming my struggles with weight and mind are now what I use with my clients.
As a certified Weight Loss and Life Coach, along with my nursing experience, I know how to help women lose weight and KEEP it off.
I coach women to renew their minds, transform their lifestyles, and lose weight, so they live God's good plan for their lives.
As my client, Robin wrote:
"Life is so much better. My perspective has totally changed, and that has completely changed my life. Not only that, but I lost weight (physically and emotionally)."
I agree, Robin.
Being at my natural weight and living out God's plan is SO MUCH BETTER.
