Jesus, Our Light in the Darkness

(Press play to listen to the full devotional episode from the Strong. Confident. His. Podcast or read the highlights below.)

Do you have limiting beliefs about God? Were you taught it is ungodly to want to be successful, take care of your health, or even want to be the best version of yourself?

Did you know limiting beliefs don’t come from Him?

As women of God, we have been saved, set apart, and chosen. We are called to shine for Him and bring Him glory. 

Let me share a story about one of my students, Heather.

Growing up, Heather was taught that wanting to be successful was ungodly and prideful, so she put her head down and settled for less in her career, friendships, and even her appearance. 

Have you ever done that too? 

Working with Heather, I taught her the truth of who God says she is in order to undo this stronghold. (Learn more about who God says you are, here.)

Heather has two kids, so I shared with her that...

Unlock Success With My 3-S Formula

(Press play to listen to this podcast episode above, or enjoy reading below.)

Today’s show is real talk for women who love Jesus and fitness but can’t seem to get to their goals…

If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me what the secret to success was, I’d have a million dollars!

Success with losing weight, toning up, leaning out, landing a magazine cover, starting a business, book, or podcast.

People reach out to me in desperation and beg me to give them the secret, but sweet friend, it does not exist!

So why is it so hard to make healthy living a habit? 

Even when we’re armed with our greatest determination and countless diet and training plans, it should be easy; but it’s not. 

Somewhere between setting fitness goals and facing reality, we trade healthy habits for quick-fix gimmicks and temporary results. 

But where is Jesus in any of this?

I left Him out of my goals for far...

Press On and Persist Until You Succeed!

(Press play to listen above, or enjoy reading below.) 

Hey there, friend! 

This topic hits home for me in a very big way. This devotional comes straight from the pages of my journal. 

People ask me quite often, "Kim how are you able to stay fit and tackle goals like writing a book or having a podcast?"

The truth isn’t pretty or as simple as you might think.

Here's my honest answer, it's anything but a perfect journey.

I slip, trip, and fail my way to success.

I've learned to keep getting up in His grace.

When your life is in Christ, He reaches down and even lifts your hand to help you get back up again, and again.

It sounds funny to say, but if it wasn’t for the Word of God to power me through, I would be a Jesus lovin' hot mess!

If you need some BFF girl time and a big dose of faith-filled motivation, this hand on your shoulder, you've so got this encouragement is just for you!

Philippians 3:12-14 says,

  • How many times have you come to the end of the day and you're like, ugh...I didn’t get my workout in?
  • Or how many times have you excitedly set a fitness goal, but somehow it never made its way from your thoughts on to your to-do list?

Let’s be honest, getting fit can be exhausting hard.

Many women tell me they have a continuously negative conversation going on with themselves and they beat themselves up because they don’t get their workouts in. 

This struggle to workout is compounded by the very unrealistic and single-focus of what it looks like to be fit.

Fitness should be a lifestyle, not a look

This is why many women feel defeated and like, what’s the point because they can’t measure up to their social media feed. 

Oh, my friends, the point is YOU ARE WORTH TAKING CARE OF

 3 Sneaky Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight or Reaching Your Fitness Goals

(Press play above to listen, or enjoying reading below.)

There are few things as hard as losing weight and reaching our fitness goals, so we want to make sure we’re not inadvertently sabotaging our best efforts.

Before I dive into these three sneaky reasons that could be hindering our weight loss and fitness goals, I want to encourage you with some Faith Fuel.

Psalm 119:105 says,

 Your word is light unto my path and a lamp unto my feet.

As we walk out our fitness through faith, we see from this scripture that God is with us. When we seek His word for answers, He’s there showing us the way. 

God wants us empowered with knowledge, so make sure one of the following is not keeping you from your goals.

3 Sneaky Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight or Reaching Your Fitness Goals

1. You have a daily habit that has a grip on you

Is there something you do daily that could be stopping...

9 Ways to Get Your Snacking Under Control 

(Press play above to listen, or enjoy reading below)

 Hey there, friend! 

Today’s show is packed with tips on how to get snacking under control, so it doesn't derail our health and fitness goals. 

But can we snack without destroying our health goals? 

The answer is, yes.

Did you know 94% of people in the US snack daily?

I teach food, fitness, and body confidence through the Word, so I prayed a lot about this episode, because, while I want to provide a ton of helpful tips...  

I want to show how God relates to our struggles and put Him front and center.

Scripture teaches us that at the core of every human heart there is a deep spiritual hunger and thirst for God. 

When Jesus was tempted with hunger, He said, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

The key is...

Discerning hunger from temptation and...

Quiet That Inner Critic!

Quiet That Inner Critic!

(Press play above to listen, or read the highlights below.)

Why are we so hard on ourselves?

  • Do you beat yourself up?
  • Do you rehearse what you should’ve, could’ve, or would’ve done (fill in the blank)?
  • Do you feel like you’re failing yourself every day?

Romans 8:1 tells us...

Therefore there is now no condemnation [no guilty verdict, no punishment] for those who are in Christ Jesus [who believe in Him as personal Lord and Savior].” 

But somehow it’s tough for these words to come off the page and into our thinking, right?

In your quiet moments, stop and reflect on this question: am I really failing, or am I not living up to a standard that someone else made for me?

Sweet friend, what extreme expectation or missed opportunity has a grip on you?

God blessed me to be on the 700 Club and Christian Broadcasting Network, CBN News.  (In case you'd like to check out these episodes, I've included the...
