The Year of Victory

Year of Victory

Today is January 1st, 2015. The beginning of not only a new day, but also a new year. A chance to start fresh. An opportunity to improve. A chance to invest in growth. An opportunity to be better than last year. Most importantly, an opportunity to lose yourself in Jesus Christ.

A friend of mine posted on social media a few days that each year she prays for God to give her a word for the year. After she shared her word and her thoughts, she asked for other people to share their word. My word for this new year is “VICTORY.”

I feel God impressing upon me that this is the year of victory. This is year that defeat will not be an option. The only option is being victorious. With that comes responsibility on my behalf though, and yours too should you choose to pursue the year of victory.











These are just a few words that come to mind as I think on what a year of victory looks like. I believe that this is year of victory not only for me, but for you as well dear friend. I believe that marriages will have the victory. I believe that relationships with children will be victorious. I believe that there will be victory in finances, in businesses, in health, in faith, and in all areas of life.

Scripture says, “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” (Romans 8:37, NLT)

We have the victory through Christ. We have already won through Jesus. We have the ability to be courageous, bold, fearless, relentless, hopeful, loving, secure, devoted, faithful, and adventurous through Him.

I pray that this will be the year of victory for you too, my sweet friend. God has amazing things in store for this year. I can feel in my spirit. I can’t wait to see all the amazing things He has in store for you and for me.

Victorious in Christ,


Challenge Groups to Help With New Year’s Resolutions


We all know that the New Year brings “New Year’s Resolutions”, but why wait to set that resolution? Why not go ahead and plan to get started on it now? I am forming new Challenge Groups that can help you achieve that resolution of getting fit, losing weight, and/or living a healthier lifestyle. In a Challenge Group you not only get me as your coach to help motivate you and offer my support 24/7, but you also get accountability, motivation, and encouragement to help keep you on track. Once you decide which group is for you, I will get you signed up and add you to the group’s private Facebook group page. This page is where each person in the group checks in with the group, posts struggles and achievements, and can offer support to our group.

Here is a summary of what to expect in each group:

Eating My Way To a Healthier Me (starting December 19th): Yes, I know this is the week before Christmas. I did that on purpose. We all know that with Christmas we tend to eat a lot of foods that we don’t normally eat (just like we did at Thanksgiving). I want to help get you on the right track with eating healthier, so that when you are faced with all the yummy Christmas foods, you won’t over-do it. Also, this week of eating healthier will help you gain better understanding of what eating healthier looks like, so that you can carry it on past that one week. I will help you with meal planning, recipes, and anything else “eating healthier” related. This group is FREE! This group is a one week group. There are only 5 spaces available in this group.

Shakeology Shake It (starting January 2nd): This group will help get your New Year started right. In this group we will commit to replacing one meal a day with Shakeology, for 60 days. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You decide which meal works best for you. There is no workout program involved (although, if you want to add that for yourself that would be perfectly fine), just Shakeology. All you need to do to get started in this group is place your order for Shakeology on home direct in time for your Shakeology to arrive at your home, in time for this group. The cost of this group is the cost of Shakeology. There are only 5 spaces available in this group!

P90X Bring It (starting January 7th, NOT January 9th…sorry for the confusion): This group will commit to “bringing it” with Tony Horton for 90 days! We will commit to pushing play everyday (time of the day is your choice) for the 90 days. P90X can be tackled at any fitness level. The cost of this group is the cost of P90X. Just place your order with me in time to get your P90X system delivered in time for this group. There are only 5 spaces available for this group!
