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.
Sisters, I had a moment this week. It was like Jesus connected all the pieces of my fitness goals and my hormonal weight struggle. Everything clicked together, and I could see the clouds lift.
Today I’m going to share the things I learned and the conversation I had with a top integrative Doctor that made this happen.
If this is your struggle, I want this clarity for you too!
Before you read another word, let’s pray.
Father God, Help reveal to my Sister what is keeping her from her best health and fitness. Give her clarity. Show her you are with her. God throughout the day, help her remember to stay connected to you. The answers to her problems and the consistency she needs are found in you, Don’t let her lose hope. Father do a new thing in her today, show her it isn’t over, and the best is yet to come.
In Jesus’ name, amen.

Life throws us curve balls: health issues, rejection, comparison, insecurities, and doubts, but today’s show will share How to Trust God’s Plan for Your Life.
My guest Bethany Beal is head-over-heels in love with her best friend and husband, David, and is the super proud mommy of Davey Jr. She is the co-founder of Girl Defined Ministries, author of several books and is passionate about spreading the truth of biblical womanhood.

Today I am inviting you to come behind the scenes with me and take a look at the inner workings of my new book Fit God's Way. I'm going to share the good, the bad, and the ugly and some sister secrets here today. I want you to walk away with value and something that can help you right now that is always my goal.
When I look back at how this new book came to be, I see how God made the impossible, possible.
I felt really called to open up about this process, the rejection, the hard work, the success, and as I prayed, I heard the Holy Spirit say it's in God's timing, your faithfulness, and relying on Him to finish strong. I want to share the truth, the reality of all the hard work, the stuff you don't see when you look at a book cover.
I think sometimes we see the end result and we don't see the middle so today we're talking about the middle spaces where we give up and quit.
Okay, so I want to share the truth and the reality and how it doesn't look like what we think it looks like. So...

Have you ever had this thought…When will I feel like I'm enough? It's a gut punch. Let's be real, right? We all have that.
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!

God often uses our pain to push us forward, and we will never become who He made us to be if we don’t keep climbing.
