Fit Bit (Good Steward 2014)

Fit Bit, be a Good Steward in 2014
The end of 2013 is quickly approaching, have you been a Good Steward of the many gifts God has bestowed upon you?

People think of fitness as diet and exercise, I think of fitness as “fit for life”, fit to be the person God created me to be.

Yes, diet and exercise help.  When you feel good physically, it is easier to be “fit” in other areas of your life. 

We all are given one body, while we are here on earth.   Regardless of your current health conditions you can be Good Steward of what God has given you.

What gets in your way of being a GOOD STEWARD of your physical body?  Do you fall down with sugar, chips, overindulgence, lack of sleep or inactivity? 

Be strong in the Lord!  Start with your mouth!  Let the words of your lips, speak life!

When you are faced with temptation, say,  “I am a GOOD STEWARD, I take good care of my body, it is a gift God has given me.”

There is a tremendous power in your tongue.  When you are tempted to say, “I can’t do this.”  Say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  Philippians 4:13” Jesus said, it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, it is what comes out of the mouth that defiles him.

Mathew 15; 10-11  “Then Jesus called to the crowds and said,  “Listen to what I say and try to understand; you aren’t made unholy by eating non-kosher food! It is what you say and think that makes you unclean.”   (Living Bible)

In 2014, be a Good Steward of all you think, say and do!

Be fit and be blessed,


PS; Let me know if I can help you or your group in 2014, I have openings for fitness vacations, retreats and speaking events.

Holy Through the Holidays

Christmas week already!

I found that even though this season is deeply meaningful for me, it is not heart felt for all, including my own family.  What a wonderful opportunity to witness right?  Yet, many do not want to hear it.   One thing everyone does seem to allow is dinner prayer.  I use this moment to thank God for the Baby Jesus who came to Earth to save us all from guilt, shame and ultimately death.  I thank God for making us white as snow, even though we deserve crimson punishment. 

Jesus is the reason for this season; let His gift of Joy be what you spread the Holy season.

Isaiah 1:18-20  “ Come, let’s talk this over! Says the Lord; no matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can take it out and make you as clean as freshly fallen snow.  Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you white as wool! 19 If you will only let me help you, if you will only obey, then I will make you rich! 20 But if you keep on turning you backs and refusing to listen to me, you will be killed by your enemies; I the Lord have spoken.
We couldn’t obey on our own. So, God sent us His own Son, Jesus, that through Him we are saved. (See John 3:16)
Luke 2; 10-11  “Don’t be afraid! “ He said, “I bring you the most joyful news ever announced and it is for everyone! 11 The Savior- Yes, The Messiah, The Lord has been born tonight in Bethlehem.

Merry Christmas,


“Thank you Lord Jesus, for being our savior. Thank you for loving each and every one of us regardless of how pathetic we can be.  Please help us remember moment by moment that we are not alone, but you are with us and love us.  Please bless this food to our bodies and let us be a blessing to you and each other.

Through Jesus Holy name we pray,

Holy through the Holidays( week one 2)

Holy Through the Holidays (week one2)
This is the time of year for much celebration.  Christmas carols, cookies, feasts and parties are a signature of this season.

Exodus 13:8  “During those celebration days each year you must explain to your children why you are celebrating-it is a celebration of what the Lord did for you when you left Egypt.”

This particular verse is not referring to the birth of our Dear Lord and Savior, but you get the picture!

When you feast, sing; celebrate etc.… take a moment or two to remember the reason for the season.

Because of Christ you are set free, you no longer have to suffer with guilt and shame, you are made beautiful each moment of everyday regardless of the mistakes you make, He fixes the problems, let HIM.

Be filled, from with in, through Jesus Christ.  Let His peace guide you this Christmas season!

Merry Christmas,


This week’s wellness tips;
1.    Remember the seven things you are most thankful for, keep your list handy.
2.    Keep it simple, focus on His love for you.

Holy Through the Holidays (week one)

Holy through the Holidays (Week One)
OH what a wonderful privilege we have in Christ!  We can go directly to God with our troubles!

The birth of our Dear Savior has set us free from guilt and shame!


Last week with Thanksgiving most of us had thankful moments.  Now is the Holiday rush and madness for many of us.  Lots of cookies to make, shopping to do, people to see, cards to get out.  Ask yourself this; are you filled with His peace?

Truly this Christmas season is to celebrate His birth, which is CELEBRATEING THE PEACE WE HAVE BECARUSE OF HIM!!!

Keep His peace front and center this Holy season and you will feel the true meaning behind the season!!!

This week’s tips;

1.     Write down seven things you are most thankful for.  Keep the list somewhere you will see it daily. (Be thankful for what you have not worried about what you have to do.)
2.     Keep it simple, focus on His love.

Mathews 6:33-34 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things, Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Merry Christmas,
