Insomnia

Why can’t I sleep?? There have been a few times throughout my life that I am exhausted throughout the day and can’t sleep at night, but this one particular night was awful.  I tossed and turned and couldn’t find a comfortable position to lay.  My mind was swirling with all types of anxieties, including thatContinue reading “Insomnia”

Depression – Living without Hope

I’m going to be vulnerable with you.  Once a month I struggle with feelings of depression as part of my cycle.  Sometimes it lasts for minutes, other times it lasts for days.  I have found a trick to beating these feelings or at least stuff them away until the time passes, but I’ve recently encounteredContinue reading “Depression – Living without Hope”

How Teaching Yourself the Gospel Could Make You a Better Runner

I have always loved Hebrews 12:1-2! Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisherContinue reading “How Teaching Yourself the Gospel Could Make You a Better Runner”

Your “A” Race – What is more important to you??

Sometimes in life we have to make decisions that we wish we could avoid.  Sometimes it challenges our pride and sometimes it challenges our heart.  We come to a cross-road where we wonder which road to take.  That is when you need to look back on your why’s and priorities… If you have them.  TheContinue reading “Your “A” Race – What is more important to you??”

It’s Your Choice – Faith or Fear??

Fear says, “Look at how far you have left.” But Faith says, “Look at how far you’ve come.” Faith is of God.  Fear is of the devil.  You cannot have one while you have the other.  One will rule, while the other cries.  Faith pleases God.  Fear delights the devil.  Faith consists of trusting GodContinue reading “It’s Your Choice – Faith or Fear??”

Have you ever set yourself up to accomplish a goal or task and half way through wondered why you’re doing it?

Seek to Understand Rather than to be Understood

How Being Intuitive can Change your Life I came across this phrase while listening to a podcast about a month ago and absolutely loved it!  Seek to understand rather than to be understood!  Wow, how powerful!

How to Eat Healthy… It’s Easy!

Let’s be Real… It’s Not! “I wish I could eat healthy.”  Have you ever said that?  You know the drill.  Start a diet excited.  Get through the first week and crave something bad. Resistance only lasts so long before you have no desire to eat healthy anymore.  You miss the doughnuts, pizza, ice-cream, candy, pop… Continue reading “How to Eat Healthy… It’s Easy!”

Enjoying the Build Up, Not Just the End

Living out Your Dreams For about a year now I have been following Sara Hall and have been so totally inspired by her determination to enjoy the process before each one of her races.  She talks quite often about how she counts it a gift and a blessing to train.  Some runners have a difficultContinue reading “Enjoying the Build Up, Not Just the End”

Wear Your Own Shoes

(How to) Be the Person God Created You to Be -Part 3 For the longest of times I was locked in the box of living up to other peoples’ standards and opinions of me.  I was controlled by the slightest remarks and comments stated by others.  I had to dress a certain way, eat aContinue reading “Wear Your Own Shoes”
