Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. // 1 Timothy 4:7-8

Q U O T E S : 

Day 1: Nourish, Flourish, Lavish, Slay

We cannot pour out from a weak reservoir no matter how much we try and it is our primary responsibility to care for the tools God has given us to pour out from. A huge part of doing that comes from keeping watch and being aware of the times we need to nourish body, soul, and spirit. As Christians, we nourish our spirits through reading the Bible, prayer, worship, and a community of other christians but the soul and body are a little bit more tricky and require quite a bit of experimentation. They require that we actually spend time noticing and practicing activities that are truly nourishing to us and cause us to flourish into the most joy filled and healthy versions of ourselves. Sometimes that requires counseling and some experimentation but it is our responsibility to take care of the first gift God entrusted us with – ourselves. -Salem Afganideh

Day 2: Freedom, Grace & Fitness

As we see in the parable of the talents, it is not about what we have been given, but about what we do with what we have been given. Our stewardship of our health can ultimately open us up for more opportunities to be used by God. Not to say He is confined to any of our physical limitations, but that it is our responsibility to take care of our bodies so that He can use us for His kingdom and His ultimate glory in as many ways as possible! -Suzy Collins 

Day 3: Beauty From Ashes

Surrendering our physical health into the hands of the Holy Spirit gives us the opportunity to go deeper into godliness. By treating our bodies with respect and honor, we become more available to the disposal of God’s purpose being carried out in the lives of those around us. It also extends the length and quality of our life and service of God because we’ve done well to care for the bodies He’s given us. Daily exercise, healthy eating is not just for a certain pant size; it’s a spiritual act of worship that brings glory to God! -Courtney Duinker 

Day 4: Find Your Why

You are the only one who can make the healthy choices in your life. We are all motivated and driven by different things; maybe you genuinely have a love for healthy cooking and nutrition, maybe you love to look in the mirror and feel strong, maybe you love being able to set a good example for your kids and show them what it is like to push through hard things for results you want. No matter what your why is, we all have one. This is the one thing that will make you keep going. -Brittney Shears

Day 5: Find Your Tribe

Accountability has been the ultimate game changer for me when it comes to reaching my goals. You need someone who will challenge you and cheer you on when all you want to do is throw in the towel. Because I’ve had those people in my life, it’s now my life mission to be that person in someone else’s. This is how my community group came to be. I understand the pressure to look a certain way because I’ve lived it. I’ve starved myself and tried every shortcut in the book, but it wasn’t until I gave this area of my life over to Jesus that I started to see myself the way I always wanted to. I can now look in the mirror and love the woman that looks back at me because I know that every single day I am making a conscious effort to offer my body as a living sacrifice to the Lord and to be a good steward of the perishable body He’s blessed me with. My mission is to equip women to live healthy and whole lives that will come to this same realization. -Rachel Symone 

We love you guys!
