It has been two weeks since I have been in the studio and I am so thrilled to be back with you all tomorrow! I had the privilege to spend a week with our whole family in California and then another week with just my oldest daughter, Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn and I spent a life changing seven days in Northern California tucked away in the mountains at JH Ranch. Talk about coming out of your comfort zone, like I ask you all to do daily... I got an extra dose of stepping out of my bubble with crazy challenges, camping experiences, non-traditional food, and just so many things that I had to "let go". Let's just honestly say I was stretched beyond my own comfort zone x 100!
Being "stretched" was part of the process as I learned the hard way, and there were so many amazing truths I took away from the week that I will carry in my heart forever. Below are a few important nuggets I wanted to share with you today in anticipation of seeing you this week! The entire TransFit community and each of you were specially prayed for throughout the week and I hope these three truths will help you on your own transformation journey and light a fire in you this summer!
1. "You only live life once, but if you live it right once is enough!" How true is this quote? When we give our best each hour, each day with the body we have been given this life is enough! So, live each day to the fullest and tell those around you how much you love and appreciate them!
2. "Change is temporary, transformation is forever." We are loved passionately by an incredible God who wants a deep relationship with us. This life is about relationships - not religion. True transformation comes from encountering the presence of God daily.
3. "We find our life purpose by loving God and loving others." How do we love God? We love Him by having a heart of gratitude and by acknowledging that joy is a deep settled confidence that God is in control of our circumstances.
The 3rd truth really spoke to me as I am a complete control freak with my family, my body, and my circumstances. I only want things to be "my way" or no way. I went to JH Ranch to develop a deeper relationship with daughter which I definitely did, but during the week God moved in me and changed my heart! My goal is now trust God in all circumstances and surrender my control and allow Him to transform my life (Proverbs 3:5).
The time at the Ranch allowed me to reflect also on the gift God has given me of TransFit! What an awesome place where we can be ourselves and transform our body, mind, and spirit daily! I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to continue to build relationships with each of YOU, and help you LIVE TRANSFORMED each day!
I am bubbling with excitement to encourage and inspire you this week!
Love and blessings,
