NPC Bikini Competition: 10 Reasons To Compete

If you told me 3 years ago that I’d compete and actually like it, I wouldn’t have believed you. I loathed the thought of competing. I didn’t just others for doing it, I just had no desire to do it myself. Steve always told me I should do it, but I honestly didn’t think I …

Fixed On Food? 5 Steps to Freedom

We all have to eat, but are we living to eat or do we eat to live – and live life well? Meaning, is food Lord over our life or is it just part of life. Sometimes I think we give food way too much power. This morning I was reading the passage “…choose for yourselves …

Mrs. Florida United States: Shock, Awe and Awesome

Once upon a time, in a land far away, there was a middle-aged married woman doing middle-aged womanly duties one quiet Sunday afternoon, when she received a message from the Queen.

One Step At A Time

Sometimes we can get SO focused on the goal, we get PARALYZED with being overwhelmed. Whether we are thinking about how much further to go or how impossible the journey seems, it doesn’t change what we could do to today by just doing what we can.

Are You Waiting On A Miracle?

A lot of people ask me to pray for them and their struggle with their weight. While I know God cares about our health, I just wonder how much time we waste waiting on a miracle, when God is waiting on our obedience. What do I mean? Well, God made us with free will. We have …

JAN 31: Prepare to Persevere

No one ever sets out to fail. You don’t plan to quit. Most people quit on a whim or because they get beat down over and over and over – and then they just quit trying to beat whatever it is they’ve been fighting out of frustration or fatigue. I’m telling you right now. The key …

JAN 7: Do You Still Want It?

We’ve all heard people say “don’t ever give up on your dreams”, but I think people just think that applies to big things like dreaming about your career or a lifelong goal. I think this should apply to anything you desire that is good for you. Sadly, people often settle for less than best. They …
