Yesterday I attended the funeral of a man who died far too young. And yet, it was an incredibly soul-filling service. Every eulogy spoke of his deep faith and how he lived it out - to his friends, his family, his wife, and his daughters. Most of the eulogies also expressed some angst over the fact that this is not the way it should have ended: a 31 year old father should not be gone. There were questions, but there was deep faith, and a powerful worship session where the words "You are GOOD" echoed through hundreds of souls.⠀
Yet there were undoubtedly people there that thought, "they are out of their minds. He is gone, and they are simply mad with grief."⠀
To the world, Jesus looks crazy. Even his family thought he was out of his mind. Frankly, our faith in him looks pretty crazy too. And yet, it is true. Jesus brings life, peace, and joy, where the world says there is only death and pain and ugliness.⠀
Are you searching for life and peace and joy today, in a world that says there is only death and pain and ugliness? Turn to Jesus. Your family might call you crazy, but a life lived with him is the most sane choice you will ever make. ⠀

I am starting this program over. Im doing it because I didn’t stick with the meal plan as closely as I should have, and I wasn’t ready for phase 2. But giving up was not an option. So, I start over and do better. If I compare myself to others I might count that as a fail, but I refuse to do that. This is MY journey, and I am doing what I feel is best for myself, my body, and I will get that goal! Don’t give up on yourself you are worth it! You are capable of amazing things! Stop saying mean things to your self and jump back in! If we keep our minds on what is good, and true we will be unstoppable! #fitnikdiaries

FACTS! I have spent so much of my life trying to be like others or do what everyone else thought I “should”. But, I was soon faced with this crazy realization. There is NO reward in living out someone else’s plan for your life. I cannot even begin to tell you how freeing it was for me when I realized this truth . What difference will it make in your life ? Comment below and let me know . The purpose God has for you is great and worth you going after . #HelloPurposeBook
My illness hasn’t always been pretty, but it’s real. I didn’t talk about it for the longest time because I didn’t have the confidence to share when there seemed to be too few answers and little progress. It actually took a new doctor and some fresh developments to provide some light and confidence, like maybe there’s an end in sight. But now I know better. I know that I should have been more open, sooner. And I know that finding remission isn’t the end, anyway. It’ll be a teeter for the rest of my life, and that’s.... ok. Every single one of us has our hard times and I believe in honesty, openness, and inspiring others by sharing relatable and encouraging stories. My story is unique to me, but maybe yours is simply a different shade of gray?
I’m grateful for @mtnmamatales for the blog feature and providing me the heart space to write. I honestly didn’t even want to share it after it was posted. It took me a few days. I wanted another round of edits because I felt the writing wasn’t my best. I wasn’t sure if the raw feelings were what I wanted out in the world. And then I got the fuck over myself and just shared the damn thing because imperfection is the whole big point anyway. So give it a read ☝️, link in bio.
I stand in amazement of God's presence, but never am I surprised by it. He is with us always. Before leaving work Thursday I received the news that a local family was blessed with nothing short of a miracle, and that blesses my heart still. They still need prayers, but God isn't finished with them yet.
Feeling as free as the hairs on my head in this picture right now 💃🏽 —— a little #flashback photo
I've been learning to #celebrate the little aspects that make this lifestyle that much sweeter. Feeling free because I am “revisiting this memory” to the Lexus dealership to help remind me of what's in store. And by revisiting I mean it's hanging on my #Visionboard and I'm hustlin from my bed on this gloomy day, organizing and revamping my thoughts and living every season of life by design.
Happiness and #freedom are a #choice . I made a choice and decision to start my own business. This decision changed my life. It has changed so many others lives because I said yes. Because I took a leap of faith. Because I recognize and celebrate the little things along the way.
I took the week to reflect, bask in God’s goodness and be present in the moment. It helped recenter my focus, re-energize my drive, organize my thoughts and gain serious determination for the months ahead in 2018. Choose your #happiness . Recognize your why. Live your life the way YOU want to- after all, one decision can change your life. It certainly has changed mine🙌🏼 😍
Jesus seems to do a lot of things "wrong" in this section. He eats with tax collectors (who made their fortunes by taking extra money), then he eats when others think he should be fasting, and he breaks the Sabbath rules, which are pretty huge and are a large part of what makes the Jewish people distinct from other cultures. Frankly, Jesus breaks a lot of traditional rules, and the Pharisees are confused.⠀
Have you seen anyone in our current culture breaking traditional Christian rules and norms and getting in trouble for it? Why do you think that is?⠀

I was the girl who use to get teased for not having a booty. 🍑As a child it did hurt my feelings and brought me to tears 😭 but as I grew up I became this unstoppable woman who didn’t give a f**k what people said. 🤷🏻♀️My lack of booty doesn’t hurt who I am. When I get approached by men I know it’s because of my personality and drive not because of my body. I want someone to love me for me which is what I got when I met my husband. Anyway moral to the story Is to love yourself for who you are. When people tease you it’s their own insecurities and I can work on perfecting my body the way I want with eating right and working out 🏋🏻♀️ Day 32/80 that booth popping out 😂 .
"for you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. i praise you because i am FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made; your world are WONDERFUL, i know that full well. my frame was not hidden from you, when i was made in the secret place, when i was woven together in the depths of the earth. your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me written in your book before one of them came to be" ~psalm 139:13-16(NIV)
