Should Christian Women Wear Makeup, Get Botox, or Want to Be Fit? Let’s Talk Legalism vs. Freedom in Christ!

Do you ever feel judged for how you look, wear your makeup, dress, or for your goals to be fit as a Christian woman? It hurts, right?! If legalism is new to you, I’m blessed to have the opportunity to show you the difference between a relationship with Jesus and a list of man-made religious rules.

Hear my heart. I have lived under much scrutiny trying to bring a message of faith and fitness into the world, so if you have been hurt by this too I want you to know the truth and freedom of Jesus.

Although we have never met, I’m certain I’m not alone in the intense desire to know what God says about these things, so  I’m going there today.  We are talking about Legalism in this Jesus Glow series because nothing will steal your light like a bunch of man-made rules and judgments.

The First Step to Fitness Success

 My Before and After

I know someone else needs to hear this. I'm praying as I'm typing that it will help you and you won't give up on your health and fitness goals.

It's hard for me to be vulnerable and share my before photo. To be honest, I don't have many old photos because I threw them away. I was horrified by pictures back then. 

This picture on the left is me before God. I was only 25. I had never worked out consistently, didn't know how to eat healthy, and I was miserable in my skin.

All I knew was dieting. That's what the world taught me. My weight went up and down and so did my worth.

But God! He met me in my pain and He helped me, so as your sister in Christ,  I'm going to share the first step that I took that changed everything. I made you a helpful guide that lays out the steps. Download it here. 

My Before. Without God in my fitness:

  • I was taught dieting was how you get healthy
  • I relied on willpower and self-confidence
  • My weight went up...

This is for you! As a sister in faith, I want to inspire and motivate you to recognize that your dreams are not impossible with God. Please listen above or scroll down to watch the Live Taping.

I was praying about how to end the 2023 Strong. Confident His. Podcast Season. It took a moment of pause and reflection to see God’s undeniable hand over every minute of 2023.

I'm not one to boast, but I feel compelled to acknowledge the divine support that carried me through 2023. Battling feelings of who me, being too old, or the thinking that it's too late, I chose to turn away from the devil's lies and follow the path laid out by Jesus....
