Today I’m doing something new and super fun on the Strong. Confident. His. Podcast and Blog.
I’m starting a new theme called Girl Chat, and I couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off than with my bestie.
This girl is my go-to, my superhero cape, my BFF for 20 years.
Please welcome Kandace Hudspeth to Strong. Confident. His.
We’re going to cover 3 Ways To Stay STRONG: Mind, Body, & Soul when life gets overwhelming!
Because let’s be honest... it’s a struggle right now!
It's human nature to "press pause" or put ourselves last when our world gets stressful....the voice of the enemy tells us to "wait for the perfect time" when we know that the perfect time is right now.
Life doesn't pause and the good work we are called to complete doesn't pause either, so we hope this encourages you.
1 Thessalonians 5:11...

If you struggle with how to feel about aging, or if it’s got you feeling down, THIS episode is exactly what you need to hear.
And stay with me to the end, because I’ve got a freebie for you with my top tips.
I titled this show, “Aging in His Grace”, because without His grace and without Him, we are left with the world’s opinion of aging, and it’s not a good one.
As I’ve aged, I’ve learned the truth that so much of aging is a mindset. It’s the thoughts you build about yourself constructing a godly vision or a worldly vision, and it’s captured vividly in the quote by Tim Challes:
Every day, we are all building the house we will live in when old age comes. Some of us are building a beautiful palace. Some are building a dark prison.
So sister-in-Christ, what are you building?
I can’t help but...

“When we embrace God‘s wisdom, God’s word, and God‘s plan for our lives – we no longer embrace fear, shame, or lies from the past and we rise and emerge with strength, wisdom, and truth!”
YES and Amen!
This beautiful quote comes from today’s guest, Kendal Hagee.
If her name sounds familiar it’s because she is John Hagee’s daughter-in-law.
She and her husband Matt have four kids and pastor Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, a non-denominational evangelical church with more than 22,000 active members.
Kendal is a co-host, co-creator, and producer of a faith-based lifestyle show called The Difference which airs on TBN and Daystar.
She also co-hosts The Matt and Kendal Hagee Podcast. Kendal is a registered nurse and passionate about seeing...

THIS might be that little something that's been missing that will get you to your goal, friend.
Today’s episode is inspired by my sweet girl Giavella, she said, "Mom! I think you should tell people the stuff you teach me it really makes a difference."
You may not know this but I write for a living, books, blogs, articles, and even the podcast content, so I could literally sit the entire day.
When I wrote my first book, 10 Steps to F.I.T. Faith Inspired Transformation, I would workout and then sit ... a lot, and I started to see my waist literally expanding, my shoulders slump, my mood, creativity, and energy drop.
Can you say, brain fog? And I’m not a coffee drinker...it wasn’t good!
As a certified fitness instructor, I should’ve known better, but I didn’t realize the effect this was having on me.
I was getting all of my caloric burn in...

Do you want to be HIMpowered and full of thoughts that help you gain control over food, get fit, and live your best life?
On today’s episode, you’ll get the key steps to begin thinking Godly Power Thoughts.
Romans 12:2 tell us…
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Before I jump into today’s episode, I'm blessed to share this 5 Star Review:
The Strong. Confident. His. Podcast has helped so much through this pandemic. I’ve wanted to give up on my fitness goals because the world seems so unstable right now and scary. Listening to the podcasts and doing the mini-course has helped teach me that I’m worth taking care of and I just need to do one day at a time with Christ. I’m feeling healthier than...

Have you been feeling overwhelmed, a bit down on yourself, or tempted to quit?
Friend, I know I have and the sisters-in-Christ on my coaching call today have too – because it’s normal!
Even though we know better and do our best to follow God’s Word, we can get caught up in a bad moment and want to quit.
There isn’t a single Jesus-loving fit person who hasn’t thought about quitting or got caught in the joy-stealing comparison trap.
In this episode, you will hear from women just like you, who:
The Word of God says, God is within her, she will not fall. – Psalm 46:5
We’re all going to get to places...

This is a great episode you don’t want to miss.
Before I dive in, I have to share this 5 Star Review:
Hi Kim, I just discovered you last night on YouTube and have been listening to your podcast all afternoon. I ordered your book and I’m so excited! Listening to you and the scriptures you quoted has renewed my hope that I can lose weight and feel better. I had almost given up. Each of your podcasts is just so on point that I KNOW God led me to you. I can't express my gratitude and I know I can do all things through Christ. Somehow I forgot that along the way. – Jessica!
WOW, just wow! All glory to God! Seriously, Thank you Lord for showing Jessica she can do all things through you! My eyes feel with tears when I...
10 Ways to Stop Hormonal Weight Gain
Okay, today is real talk for women. We’re talking hormones and weight gain, and what we can do to beat it!
This has been a very tough struggle for me, so I want to share everything I’ve learned to overcome it.
I believe God wants to be involved in every detail of our lives, so here’s His word to stand strong and confident on:
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. – Psalm 32:8
Let’s just all agree that weight loss is not simply one calorie in one calorie out.
Calories do matter, the food that’s making up your calories matters a lot, but hormones matter more!
Our hormones are driving the weight loss process! Especially as you get into perimenopause and menopause.
Our world just thinks of weight loss as diet and workout,...
5 W’s to Simplify Your Faith and Fitness
When I was first searching for answers on how to get healthy, I began researching our manual for life, the Bible.
I noticed that Jesus got up early. He got alone and prayed. He walked everywhere. He put time with His father first.
Following His example, I personally found lasting results, and then created an entire program that has helped transform 1000s of women’s lives.
These women don’t just lose weight, they find confidence, pursue goals, and live free of the dieting rollercoaster.
I wanted to share how to do this with you, so I created a simple system called The 5 W’s.
The 5 W’s are a new and easy tool that will help you create a lifestyle of success.
5 W’s: Word, Water, Workout, Whole, God-made foods, Worship
Get started now!
Aim to create a daily win with each W.
Throughout the day, check-in with yourself and say,
Did I get in the ...
When God Did the Impossible in My Life
I have a confession, sharing personal stories isn't always easy for me, because it's never easy to admit all the doubt, fear, and discouragement I've experienced pursuing my goals.
You know those moments when you think, "Oh I could never do that, or why is it so hard, and why does success seem so easy for other people?"
If you're really struggling today, I'm sharing personal stories to show you that no matter what it looks like, God's not done with you.
Sometimes we need to intentionally look back on all He has brought us through to remember how good He is.
I call them HIMPOSSIBLE moments!
This scripture speaks to this perfectly:
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20)
