Who’s Ready for an Amazing Week?

Are you ready?  We’re ready, let’s motivate each other and all those around us to make God proud!

We have a great quick video for you that puts everything into perspective.  We don’t exercise and eat well to be super models but to bring glory and honor to God.  He gives us one amazing body to use for this short time on earth and He tells us, “  19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”1 Corinthians 6:19-20. Let the focus of the week be on making God proud with our choices!

We love Francis Chan!!

It’s hard to follow that amazing teaching but now it’s time to move our bodies!!  I have a simple challenge for you 100 burpees, 100 push ups, and 100 sit-ups you can break it up however you need to but DON’T take a shower before you do thisWinking smile

Becca and I both love our plain Greek yogurt. Please don’t buy the sugar loaded version, just add your own sweetener and fruit or make our recipe below!!  These ingredients are always in my house so I have no excuse not to grab something healthy when I’m hungry.  This also travels well just keep the cereal on the side!

Yogurt Crunch!

1 cup of Plain Greek yogurt

Any fruit – strawberries, bananas, and blueberries are my favorite

1/4 cup of Kashi Go lean crunch

any sweetener of your choice

and the secret ingredient is Chia seeds, if you haven’t tried these wonderful little seeds you must!  There are so many reasons you will love them, go here for the health benefits of the chia seed.  Try Chia seeds in your yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies, even pancake batter (your kids will never know).

Go out today and make God ProudSmile

Give God 2013

This is just a mason jar with a little quote “Let go Let God!”  it’s surrounded with bible verses I’ve hand written that have impacted me and are my reminders from God.   let go let God jar_thumb[4]

Such as “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”  2 Corinthians 3:17

“22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:21-2 and many more.                                                                    

I’ve started putting my struggles at the feet of God knowing that I can do all things in His strength rather then being frustrated and struggling in my own.  This will sit in our kitchen as a reminder to rely on God in 2013 not just for me but for my whole family.  I hope we fill it to the brim with all our fears, worries, and stress.  Then next year on January 1st, 2014 we can all look back and see how awesome and faithful God has been taking our burden’s and making them light!

29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:29-30

Happy New Year, ShannonWinking smile
