If you're battling addiction, if you're battling wanting to lose weight, if you feel like you can't do it, this episode is for you because this is real talk about hard things. I recently interviewed Alice Shoemaker- Scarborough on the Strong Confident His Podcast. She is a FIT Sister in Christ Member and an amazing example of what it means to be Strong. Confident. His.
God healed Alice from addiction, got her healthy and fit, and took her from food stamps to college. This is her story for God's glory.
She's had a Jesus transformation, and her story is going to touch you whether you've ever battled addiction or not or whether you're trying to lose weight, this is going to bless you.
Sisters, this conversation is real, raw, and deep. Please join us in watching the conversation. No blog post can capture the realness and emotion we expressed during this interview.

I reached out to my Fit Sisters in Christ Facebook group and asked the question, “What is the biggest problem you need help with on your fitness journey?” Tell me in the comments. So today, I’m going to answer as many as I can.
Before I dive in, let’s pray!
So many of us are stuck. We need answers. Our fitness journeys feel like an on and off again roller coaster. Please help us remember that your mercies are new every morning and in you, we don’t need to have guilt about food or missed workouts or what we weigh or how we look because our worth isn’t tied to any of that. Our worth is in you. Please Father help us remember this so we stop getting stuck and basing our level of commitment on our performance. Make it clear, lift the negative spirit of confusion, laziness, and inconsistency and help us go all in with you. we love you and want to live for you for your plans and purposes. Stop this fitness thing from getting in the way. We...
Ever wonder why being consistent with your food, workouts, and motivation is SO hard?
This blog will give you the reasons why and 5 things you can do to that work!
I want to introduce you to Christine because her problem is many of our problems, but she beat it in the Lord.
She came to me because she couldn’t stick to her goals. She would do really well for a couple of weeks, but then she would quit. She asked me to help her understand why she kept quitting. I asked Christine if she had ever made God the God of her fitness goals. She laughed and said, “What do you mean? He doesn’t care about the forty pounds I need to lose.” As we spoke, Christine started to cry and said, “I did this to myself. I did this to my body. Why would God want to help me, and how could He help me?”
Maybe today you feel like Christine. You’ve started and stopped your fitness goals more times than you can count—but you really want to see them through.
Hey Sister, Today, I’m getting personal and opening up the pages of my messy tea-stained journal to share the priceless words God has given me to encourage myself to get motivated, be consistent, and show up when I have nothing left.

Here’s something you may not know about me, I love writing, and my mind is always putting words together. What’s funny is God always gives me quotes when I’m working out. There’s something about moving my body and listening to Christian music that really brings on creativity. I believe so much that Jesus is right there waiting on us to say, I need you, so let’s...
Have you ever noticed how much adversity you face when you try to do something new?
Maybe today for you it’s a new fitness goal, a new job, or even trying a new workout. Maybe you’re trying to adopt new habits, whatever it is, remember this phrase, new level new devil.
Think about it, you’re doing something new, and you feel like everything is coming against you, or people are trying to make you feel like you aren’t good enough, you don’t know what you’re doing, or you’re going to fail, or what about when your worst critic is living right between your two ears?
This is a stomp, your Holy foot pep talk, take yourself to the next level, and own your space… you are God’s property kind of moment.
My friend really wanted a new job, she trained hard for it, and she got it, but she noticed the women there didn’t really like her, they talked about her behind her back- they made her...
I’m just going to be very honest. A couple of months ago, I noticed my waist was getting wider.

I mean, don’t you want to know if there’s anything you can do to prevent back injuries and shrink your waist? Yep - I thought so!
But before I say another word, let’s pray!
Dear God, It’s tough living in the world where we hear things like snatched waist, love handles, and muffin tops, and see endless body part photos that can make...
Hey, sisters in Christ, I recently interviewed Colleen Fotsch. She literally is the embodiment of Strong. Confident. His.
She's a data analyst and a five-time all-American swimmer at UC Berkeley, where her team won many championships, and after college, Colleen got into CrossFit. She competed at the games and the regional regionals multiple times as both an individual athlete and in the team division, and she had a first-place finish in the 15.5 where she was the fastest woman in the world.
In 2020. Colleen was also recruited to join the USA Bobsled team. She’s been an athlete all her life, but she has her own struggles too.
“Yeah, absolutely. I've had two major injuries. I had a torn rotator cuff from just overuse from swimming, which I didn't get surgery on or didn't know was torn until I was midway through my CrossFit career. And that kind of...
