I’ve been hearing a lot of questions from Christian women lately due to the pandemic.
I’m not going to sugar coat it – we are living in uncertain times and things are changing every day.
As women of God, we need to stand firm in our faith more than ever.
Consider this a hand on your shoulder and a friend praying over you.
I am amazed by the outpouring of the Christian community banding together in prayer, and seeing it on the news warms my soul.
I’m watching women, like my Strong Confident His guest today, stepping up and serving their families, community and businesses in powerful faith-filled ways.
If you need prayer today, your hope restored and could use some God-led motivation, we’re here to serve you.
Don't Give Up! In Him, You've Got This!
I want you to fulfill your goals and live out everything good that God has planned for you, so if you were thinking of quitting today...
>>>Don’t you dare, don’t give up on you, don’t do it!<<<
Maybe today you’re at your wits end and your goals feel hopeless, but I want to encourage you to wipe the slate clean and start over in this moment in God.
The word tells us, not to look at the past, because God will do a new thing.
“But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? – Isaiah 43:19
GOD WILL DO A NEW THING!
Now you might not see the results of your hard work or your prayers right away, but I can promise you this, being faithful pays off.
The True Source of Beauty and Confidence
So today’s devotional really hits home for me.
I’m going to be very real here, in hopes, that God will use it to help you.
For as long as I can remember, I always felt like I didn’t quite measure up, and I had this awful feeling of “you’re not good enough."
>>> Have you ever felt that way? <<<
Over the years, I’ve tried to locate why I started having these feelings.
I think it was a combination of things…
But God healed me!
Now, my identity is securely in Christ, and the numbers...
SCH EP3 - UNDOING THE LIES THAT KEEP US FROM SUCCESS
Goal setting and achievement is an important part of living a life of fulfillment and confidence.
Why is it that we often struggle to achieve the goals we have in our heart? What keeps us from taking the steps forward toward our goals?
All too often, I get questions like this in the F.I.T. Sisters In Christ community, “why do I feel unworthy of success? I keep doing things to sabotage myself.”
Is there a place in your heart where you feel unworthy of succeeding at your fitness goals?
Meet Kerry, a F.I.T. Sister who gave me permission to share her story in hopes of helping you today.
Kerry came to me frustrated that she couldn’t put on muscle after being bedridden from multiple surgeries. After a few meetings, Kerry’s real problem surfaced.
The emotional pain from her recent divorce and the guilt she felt for the change in her kids’ lives was hurting her deeply.
Her emotions were...
How To Intentionally Choose Faith Over Fear
With all that is going on in the world, you may be tempted to pause or even freeze. The enemy uses fear to keep us from chasing our dreams and growing closer to God. We must recognize that fear is a liar with the mission of robbing us of peace, joy, health, and even the pursuit of our dreams.

Open your bibles with me or just close your eyes and listen to Isaiah 41:10, Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
God wants our complete reliance on Him.
Did you know fear not is in the bible, 365 times? That’s a fear not for every day!
So why did God mention this so much?
Fear paralyzes us.
