Is it possible to embrace being beautifully imperfect and thrive in who God created you to be? The answer is yes! But we need to do this... stop comparing!

Start listening above or watching the video below to overcome the trap of comparison and find confidence and contentment in Christ.
This conversation is packed with insightful tips to keep you moving in God’s grace. Watch the conversation below to learn why comparison could be keeping you from God’s best for you.
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...
I’m just going to be very honest. A couple of months ago, I noticed my waist was getting wider. If you’ve ever wondered what causes this, I’m about to share a list of reasons, and then I’ll wrap up with what we can do to fix it. And this is not some here’s my secret supplement I’m trying to sell you or abs of steal garbage these are just facts I learned because I’m going through it and thought, hey, I bet my awesome Fit sisters in Christ might want to know this too.

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.
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....
I had the best conversation with a true woman of God! Her name is Rachel Elizabeth Murray. She's a personal trainer and a competition coach. If you've ever been through trauma, need healing, or if you've been hiding your pain with fitness goals keep reading!
The healthiest industry isn't getting any healthier. But why? Rachel’s theory makes so much sense and she shared it will me! It's neglecting the source of health and fitness. The truth is, looks can be deceiving. You can look super healthy, even super hot while burying trauma disorders and spiritual atrophy. Let’s dive into my conversation with Rachel Elizebeth!

So this morning, I was praying, and I was asking God, Lord help me. How can I make this a message? What do I need to say to my sisters to help them through this? How can I help myself? This is a place we all struggle with. And he brought the woman at the well to mind.
Friend, have you ever really like dug into all the layers and all the context and all the meaning behind that? If not, don’t worry! I'm going to unpack all of this today with you. Because her story teaches us about worth and feeling enough. Let’s dive in!
Apart from God, are you getting your fulfillment from how many people follow you on social media? How cute you look today in your outfit? There's no judgment here.I have felt like both of these. So I just want to make sure you know, I'm talking from experience.
I want to help...

Chances are, if you love Jesus and fitness, you’ve experienced the pain of being judged! First, let me say if this has happened to you, I’m sorry. I know how this feels, and it hurts.
This topic lights a fire in me, and apparently, a lot of our sisters…I’ll share how I came to discover this in a moment.

The other day I was answering my comments and messages on social. Under a video I posted on teaching women how to invite Jesus to eat with them and how doing, so it helps us control our appetites, there was a comment with words I have heard before. Her comment said, “You are saying the right things, but your image is...
