course to God. He wants us to be in His presence. He desires we seek His will! If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you watch the War Room! Oh my goodness, it is SO good, and right inline with the study (although I know we haven't quite made it there yet). Seriously, if you watch it you will come away truly inspired to begin praying. It is so simple to make a space for your prayer time, yet so powerful! Fasting is another component. This is so personal. For me, it will be social media. Which is part of why I'm posting this today. My social media interactions will be limited, but I will respond to messages and so forth. Remember to pray for God's leading on fasting.
I have realized if we keep ourselves in Scripture, spend time in Prayer and fast whatever it is God puts on our hearts, we rest more in Him. Stress is no longer a factor, because we know and trust we are right where God needs us to be. This frees us from judgments, opinions and attitudes of the world, and empowers us to live as God needs us to. I am also praying for everyone I interact with. If you have a prayer request, please feel free to send them to me. I am taking prayer very seriously in this next season.
The next big one is nutrition. I have gone back through the dinner ideas for the challenge we recently completed and compiled a list. If you click on the nutrition gift package, you can download the PDF of the
The next gift is a workout plan suggestion. It is broken down into fourteen weeks, because that is how many weeks we have until spring break, and it is a goal to work towards.

These two days are quite intentional. Wednesday is usually an opportunity to attend a midweek service or Bible study. It is a good time to stretch and reflect. It is a good time for spiritual rejuvenation if the week has already been wearing on you. Plus, it is good for the body to rest and recover when building.
I hope these gifts come in handy in some way! But the final gift I would like to give you is ENCOURAGEMENT. For me, it is one thing to have all the tools needed to live a healthy life. It is quite another to have the courage to put all the pieces of the puzzle together to live it out. It can be hard! It can be easy to give up! But it is so much better if you have someone come along side you and encourage you along the way. Yes, the Holy Spirit is a Comforter and all our strength should come from the Lord. But sometimes God also needs us to be there for one another to encourage and lift one another up. If this is you, please let me know. I am happy to be there for you! Or keep you in prayer. Or check in on you every now and then. This one little act can sometimes be all the difference in the world in helping us get to where we want to be! Have a Merry Christmas, and here is to a wonderful New Year!
