Do not be afraid is written 365 times in the Bible. There are 365 days in a year. I don’t think that was a coincidence. Be strong and courageous. ❤️ #donotbeafraid #365times #biblequotes #strongandcourageous

See what great Love the Father has Lavished on us! That we should be called Children of God! 1 John 3:1

☀️ 📖 🙌🏻 “Seja forte e corajoso! Não se apavore, nem se desanime, pois o Senhor, o seu Deus, estará com você por onde você andar" (Josué 1:9) #strongandcourageous #palavradiaria #forteecorajosa #Deusébom

Y’all, I’m self conscious about showing myself full-length in a picture. I’ve got so far to go to get where I want to be...those goals seem so lofty. I watch this video and the first thing I want to do is pick it apart - the way my clothes fit, the way my body has changed in shape, how I let myself go...
But looking at this video from a fresh perspective, I see a woman who is stronger than she was a few months ago, both mentally and physically. I see a body that has carried and birthed two children. I see a wife who has lived in four different states in the last eight years and has had to start over each time. And best of all, I see a gym where I’ve been welcomed, a culture of support and encouragement, and a group of people who have accepted me at my current abilities and have cheered me on and pushed me to do things (like what’s in this video) that I never thought I could. 🤯 So, today, I look past the rolls and lumps and bumps and embrace the strong and powerful woman that I am underneath all that. Who I was created to be. 💪🏻

Sometimes change sucks. Like not being able to have this entire ice cream cone 🍦☹️ All of a sudden, my stomach cannot take any form of dairy. This really kills me. I love ice cream, cheese, and a good cafe con leche.

I have tried to avoid being dairy free but the consequences have not been pretty. Breakouts, sick days, wasted money on dairy I can’t eat, wasted money on medicine.

Although this is a small change, it reminds me that as we grow (aging in my case), CHANGE happens. And
we can either embrace the change with grace or we can fight it until we’ve exhausted ourselves.

A new job, moving to a new city, becoming a parent, getting hitched, or whatever else you’re growing into–they all come with very unique challenges and changes.

And when we push against the inevitable changes that come with growth, sometimes we may experience unnecessary stress.

Here’s a little reminder to embrace the place and season you’re in. Take the necessary steps to be present in this moment. Give yourself grace. Know that change=growth. And growth=God taking you from glory to glory.

I know you’re gonna get through it! And I HOPE I can get through this dairy free thang 🙄

Leave me some love below if you’re dairy free or if you’re going through some changes and can feel my pain 😉

Why do I think my job is the best on the planet?
Hint, it's all about my clients!
They are all different but all the same. Regardless of what background or fitness level they have, they have all had challenges and success stories along the way. So I thought it would be worthwhile to take a peek into their lives to see what makes them tick and what encouragement they may have for us.
I introduce to you my first Fit4Life Client of the Month, Heidi Chupp!
@heidichupp has been a client of mine for 16 months and has seriously made progress in so many ways during that time. It has truly been a gift to be able to witness her transformation firsthand.
Check out my brand new blog (a link is in my profile) to learn more about Heidi and what she has to say about her fitness journey! I couldn't be more proud of her and all of my hard-working clients! 💜💜💜 #fit4life #awesomeclients #strongisbeautiful #bestjobever #fitbodies #fitclients #neverstoplearning #encouragement #maketodaycount #strongandcourageous #fitnessjourney #clientofthemonth #winningatlife #easydoesntmakeyoubetter

Loving my new keychain! Should I make these for my Etsy shop?! What verse would you want to see?

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates. Proverbs 31:30-31 💕

M and M Devotional Monday 8-13-18

This week we will meditate and memorize (#MandMVerses) Deuteronomy 31:6 and today we will be studying the phrase “Be strong and courageous”
This word for “strong” is used in the Bible to describe being physically strong and internally strong. When God tells them to “Be strong” God is telling us to be both physically strong and emotionally/mentally strong. This word “courageous” in the Bible means “to strength, support establish, to persist, determine.” Therefore God wants us to be strong mentally/physically and then be determined and persist in that strength.
But how do we do this? How can we be strong and courageous?
Many Christians want to use their own power to be strong but if we use our own power we will fail. Our Strength needs to come from God and we need go to God to help us persist in our strength.
God will give us strength and sustain that strength when we rely on Him. We rely on God by going to Him in prayer daily. God is always there to answer our prayers, all we have to do is call on Him. Did you notice that I wrote “daily” ? We need to have a relationship with God and talk to Him (cause prayer is just talking to God) everyday if we want to sustain God’s strength. God has also given us His Word (The Bible) to give us strength. There is so much power in studying the Bible! God uses it to speak to us, encourage us and even correct us.
If we want to be strong and courageous we need to go to God daily in prayer and Bible study.
For the rest of the day meditate on the phase “Be strong and courageous.” Say this phrase over and over again in your mind. Reflect on it. Pray over it. Ask God to show you the areas in your life where you need to rely more on Him. Let God use this verse to speak to your heart.

For the full devotional check out parisministries.com under free devotionals. Come back tomorrow as we continue to study this Bible Verse.

First day of kindergarten & I want to remember how she loves turquoise, light up Sketchers & Smooshy Mooshy on her backpack. I want to remember how she only wanted pretzels for breakfast & took donuts to her class to be sweet. I want to remember how she was ready for this next little step in growing up & still needs lots of hugs from mom to build her confidence. I’m so thankful how beautiful our life is together. I pray she soars with Holy Spirit wind & will be #strongandcourageous in Jesus. I pray she will be a good friend to all she meets. This is part of our #JesusLedAdventure together. #gladtobehermom #kindergarten #classof2031 @shilohsaints @sketchersofficial #smooshymushy

Fear is a curious thing.
A little fear can be healthy. It can keep us from situations that can bring us harm. Too much fear, on the other hand, can paralyze us. It can keep us from taking necessary action. .
When we recognize the Lord is our salvation, we don’t fear what man can do to us. We can be like Joshua - strong and courageous. We can take action!
Just remember, courage is not the absence of fear. In fact, the only way to have courage is to have some fear. Courage, in the Lord, enables us to take that step of faith and overcome those doubts and fears. .
So, be strong and very courageous. The Lord is your light and your salvation! Do not be afraid!
Have a great week!
