 “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:8

Everyone is our Teacher

God puts people in our lives just at the right time and brings us a message that we need to hear and learn from. Everyone that is currently in our lives and that will come into our lives is our teacher.

One of my greatest teachers and mentors has been Pastor Byron Bledsoe from C3...

Overdrawn

financialabundance.jpg

As I sit here writing this blog post it is 4:30 in the morning. I am drinking my morning cup(s) of coffee. Liquid gold right? My Fitbit, which I have a love-hate relationship with, tells me I got five hours and fifty-seven minutes of sleep. My body tells me that isn’t enough. The bags under my eyes tells me that isn’t enough. 

I feel overdrawn on sleep this morning and quite honestly for the majority of my adult life. This is one of the challenges I am facing in my life that...

My Story

I was sitting in the audience of a national pharmaceutical sales meeting when they were handing out awards for the top sales people in the country.  As they announced all of the top award winners for the year, I could feel my level of angst go through the roof.    I had this inner turmoil of knowing that pharmaceutical sales wasn’t my gifting.  It wasn’t what God put me on this earth for. 

I had been in those top sales performers shoes before winning...

OBESITY AND TYPE 2 DIABETES

I think we have all heard these statistics before.   In fact we have heard them so much I think we have become numb to them because being overweight has become normal.  7 out of every 10 Americans are overweight.  4 out of every 10 Americans are obese.  1 out of every 2 Americans has some type of chronic disease...

How to Thrive in the Face of Fear and Self-Doubt

fearandselfdoubt.jpg

Fear, self-doubt and self-judgement seems to sabotage so many of us.  In whatever area we are trying to change in our lives, fear, self-doubt and self-judgement are the limiting factors that reach up and tear us down most often.  At least that is the case for me and many of the other people I talk to. 

I have recently been geeking out on some documentaries.  The latest one I have been watching is called iThrive.  It is a documentary on obesity and diabetes. ...

Nothing to Prove

“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God?  Or am I trying to please people?  If I were trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ?”  Galatians 1:10

Have you ever been caught in that trap where you feel like you have to prove yourself over and over again to yourself, God and others?  It feels like my whole life I have been on that hamster wheel of proving myself by performing and proving myself. 

DRIVEN BY GOALS

Three Ways to go from Surviving to Thriving

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, I will give you rest.”  Matthew 11:28

We only have 24 hours in a day.  So much to do, but so little time.  My question to you is how efficient are you with that time?  It’s not about doing more with your time, it’s about being more effective with your time.  One of the biggest barriers and challenges I hear from my clients as a fitness professional is a lack of energy and honestly, something I...

ONE Million Starts with ONE

audience-of-one-RW.jpg

In this world of follows and likes on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, LinkedIn and however many more social media platforms we have it is so easy to get caught up in numbers.  Believe me I have fallen into that trap many times myself. 

I often times wonder what our life would be like if we went back to the days before social media.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think social media is all bad and I certainly use it to share my story and encourage others, but I...

The Next Chapter

lifeisadaringadventure1.jpg

It has been about two years since I left the comfort and security of my six figure pharmaceutical job and moved to Colorado after living in Orlando for the last twenty years of my life.   I left behind comfort, safety and security for the great unknown.  What a faith adventure God has me on. 

I would love to tell you since moving out here it has been all sunshine and rainbows.  It hasn’t been.  There have been many ups and downs along the way.  ...

Does Life Really Have to be so Hard?

DOES LIFE REALLY HAVE TO BE SO HARD?

Does life really have to be so “hard?”  Does it always have to be a struggle?  It seems in my own personal and professional life I have become really good at making things hard.   I have always been hard on myself.  I have always demanded perfectionism of myself and when I don’t live up to my own expectations I beat myself up mentally and yes sometimes even physically.  Damn, that’s a hard way to live...
