Girl, I just want to pray over your fitness goals!

 You are on my heart today! I know the battle to get healthy is hard and you’re facing things today that you think no one understands, but Jesus does. I want to remind you of that today, and help you get free and on the right track in Him today!

I want to quickly say that I’m right there with you sister, and I understand the struggle too. I’m trying to make every food choice a God-made one, and I’m faced daily with the same choices you are. To work out or put it off. To look in the mirror and see a fearfully and wonderfully made woman of God or someone I don’t want to be. We are on this battleship together, it is not a cruise ship, so let’s get powered up and prayed up for the day.

My prayer for you.

Dear God,

I pray over my sister today that she would know you are there to take her pain, her hidden hurts, and you can help her with the habits that keep her from your best. Father, the world is so loud and the journey to be fit is hard....

Today I am inviting you to come behind the scenes with me and take a look at the inner workings of my new book Fit God's Way. I'm going to share the good, the bad, and the ugly and some sister secrets here today. I want you to walk away with value and something that can help you right now that is always my goal.

When I look back at how this new book came to be, I see how God made the impossible, possible.

I felt really called to open up about this process, the rejection, the hard work, the success, and as I prayed, I heard the Holy Spirit say it's in God's timing, your faithfulness, and relying on Him to finish strong. I want to share the truth, the reality of all the hard work, the stuff you don't see when you look at a book cover.

I think sometimes we see the end result and we don't see the middle so today we're talking about the middle spaces where we give up and quit.
