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...

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)

Learn How Patty Lost 40 Pounds in Just 7 Months!
(Press play to listen, or read the highlights of this Strong. Confident. His. Podcast episode below.)
Today’s show is very special to me, and I want to give God all the glory.
I will never forget scrolling through my comments on Instagram and seeing this:
Have you ever gotten confirmation about something God has shown you? THIS was that kind of moment for me!
40 Pounds is no easy feat and in only seven months!
Patty didn’t use a diet fix either, she used a life fix.
It’s been eight months since her Faith Inspired Transformation and she hasn't gained the weight back either.
And did I mention, that she's a grandma!
Only God can do the impossible in our lives friends!
Five years ago, God put it on my heart to write a book about everything I learned the hard way from the fitness industry.
After years as a fitness model, writer, and competitor, I saw the grip fitness goals and body image can have on...
Don’t let THIS Destroy Your Fitness Progress
(Press play to listen to this episode of Strong. Confident. His. or enjoying read the highlights below.)
Today’s show is one that will equip you with a truth many of us may not even be aware of, and it's a major "aha" moment!
Pause for a moment and think about this:
Have you ever made the connection that weekends were a third of the year and could be sabotaging your fitness goals?
In my personal struggle to stay strong and fit: mind, body and soul, God showed me this: 52 weekends a year X 2 days = 104 days
But if you start your weekends on Fridays, that’s 52 x 3 = 156 days
With a three day weekend, we’re getting closer to half of the year.
I thought it was important to do a Strong. Confident. His. episode on this, because God wants His daughter’s wise.
He wants our eyes open to the traps of the enemy and the things that we don’t even see that are completely derailing us from our best....
