Fear to Faith: Fighting for Freedom
Updated: Feb 2, 2020
If you would have told me last month, last week, seven years ago, that I would be writing a bible study, a devotional, I would have told you that you are crazy.
And yet, here I am.
Sneak Peek to Fear to Faith: Fighting for Freedom: a 40 Day Devotional
A series of messes to a message. A series of tests to testimonies.
Fighting for freedom in all ways, all things and all forms.
What I have learned is this, friend. God is crazy.
In a great and incredible and out of the box way. In. every. way. God doesn't do logic. He loves confounding the wise.
Showering us with love. Using us. In spite of ourselves.
Whether this is your first Bible study or your 100th, I pray that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit lead You. That they speak through me as they have spoken to me personally and deeply to put this together.
As they have spoken to me through countless teachers from the womb until now. Be clear, friend.
I have zero degrees in Biblical studies or seminary. Yet, here I am. I have countless experiences with God and in life. I have taken countless studies in many ways.
God has pursued me deeply and profoundly at each and every turn. From childhood studies in Catholic Church Education to speaking to me in every way and every teacher to studies with Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Louie Giglio, Pastor Mike Todd and so many more.
I am abundantly blessed. What I know is this. I am grateful for each and every co-creator that shared their story & voice. I am grateful for every creation, transformation, and inspiration.
I know some of you may have found me or this site because of wellness, lifestyle, media, and/or travel. Perhaps you found us via an article on social media, smoothies, or scaling? You may believe God or you may not.
However, please know the foundation of FIT Life Creation right down to the name is God's. God is in my business. (FIT stands for Follow Love in All We Do, Impact People, and Transform the Mind). The acronym ties to 1 John 4:7, Mark 12:30, and Romans 12:2.
Every single thing I share is prayed about and divinely directed. I learned from years of not including God what a mistake that was. When I look around the people and businesses that do shine too. So, now I include God in everything. God is in every bit of my business. I pray you to let Him in every part of your life and business.
I have realized over the last several years the message that God wants me to share is freedom, creation, transformation, and inspiration. Pointing back to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in every way.
You will find like I have found my friend, that life is a tapestry of love, pain, purpose, and freedom.
As I write this, I have tears in my eyes. I have profoundly, utterly and catastrophically messed up in so many ways in life. But God.
And I want you to know in your core that those God given dreams of freedom in your heart are in YOU to point back to Him. To Glorify our Creator. So that HIS Love, HIS Power, HIS Freedom Flows in and Through YOU to Others.
Be Salt & Light. Shine for All to See His Light.
I have learned profoundly this - Apart from God, I can do NOTHING. When I was stripped of all the things externally I once defined by myself by - status, stuff, recognition - was when I truly found myself - In Him and Only Him.
And, when I delighted myself fully in Him, ALL of the Desires of My Heart Flow Freely. Given to me by Him who Created Me.
HIGHLIGHTS ABOUT MY STORY
I share my story simply to help you connect to your own. So, you know that I am a Freedom Fighter and I walk alongside our Creator and you.
And, that I have fought with Him for Freedom in every way

I'm a woman who has walked from fear to faith and continues to. I'm a woman who has turned countless messes to a message with Gods help.
It's time to simplify transformation in health, wealth and business so you get the results and life you love. I was once where you may be. I felt like I was in the wrong life, despite doing all the things that people told me were right.
I felt like I was in shackles spiritually, mentally, emotionally, relationally, playfully, and financially. I allowed lies, the external and the world to shape who I was.
The more I turned to the eternal, internal and freedom with our Creator, the more the shackles have continued to fall off each and every way.
For years until 2013, I found myself unstable in mind, thought and deed.
In my health, I was nowhere the health I wanted, always tired and over 55 pounds heavier than I am today.
In my calling and purpose for years, I found myself bouncing into different industries searching externally for the calling and riches God placed on the inside of me.
Always helping others pursue their dreams and making them seven to nine figures consistently year over year. Yet, my own self worth, health, wealth, and business were in complete chaos.
Step by step, I got clear on putting passion and purpose first to focusing on pleasing people and profits and continue to.
I remember feeling despite all my certifications and results, I was missing something deep inside. Something important, like myself and who our Creator called me to be.
The truth is, I forgot or buried so many pieces of myself deep inside. Yes, I had tons of experience in over seven industries, yet I was unclear if I had wasted my time and my life and about what it all meant.
I was continuing in the rat race and on the hamster wheel wondering how on earth was I going to pursue my passion and my purpose and transform my own life. Anyone else relates? Or am I all alone?
I get it. The joy you see on my face in any pictures and the peace you hear in my voice has been missing for quite some time. Desire, drive, and determination keeps me going.
There came a point where nothing and no one spoke to my soul and spirit like our Creator, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. That's because no one on earth can speak to your soul as the Spirit does. The Creator knows His Creation.
I realized I am a multi-passionate entrepreneur. I realized I walked through these experiences so that I could transform my own journey, as well as relate to many of our journeys.
What if every single part of you, your path, and your pain has shaped you for the purpose you are put on this planet for?
That's why I'm SO passionate about helping you fight for your freedom. Freedom in All Forms. It is for Freedom Christ set us FREE. Galatians 5:1.
It is time that we walk in FREEDOM in ALL WAYS.
As I reflect backward on my life, I recognize a lack of a firm foundation that permeated my life for years. How do I know?
Well, the lack of a firm foundation showed up in my thoughts, words, and deeds. It impacted every area of life.
The fears, the lies, and the external confused me in many ways until I learned to focus on first things first. Please know that 2019 was the first year the Holy Spirit put on my heart to read the Bible straight through. It has blessed me like nothing else. I am now on time number 2.
God reminds me of one of my mentors Dani Johnson and how she has rested on his word (over 15 times straight through) and all He has done for her & her ministry & all He wants to do for ALL his children.
As I realigned my priorities first thing in the morning, all through the day, and the last thing before closing my eyes to focus on our Creator, everything fell apart to come back together as it was originally intended. As He originally intended me.
My prayer for you, friend is you focus on your foundation of faith and freedom this week. I pray that each and every day God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit invade your heart like a flood.
That you feel yourself being set free in the unseen and the seen. I pray that you know that you are deeply loved by the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. I pray that you know that we are here for a purpose on this planet. I pray you rise up and walk boldly in faith and freedom as He intended for you to.
I pray that He speaks to your spirit, soul, mind, and body as only our Creator can exactly how you need at this moment now. I pray this resource blesses you now at this moment on earth and to eternity.
Example of a Day in the 40 Day Devotional
Word Hebrews 11:1
Aramaic Bible (I love this version as it is said to the closest to original words spoken by Jesus)
Now faith is the conviction concerning those things that are in hope, as if it were these things in action, and the revelation of those things that are unseen
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
This verse came to me during a spiritual retreat I had in Atlanta before one of my mission trips to Austria for a Sports Camp in 2011.
I remember it being inscribed on a pillow in the room in Dahlonega, GA. It stayed in my head all that weekend and has never left.
It has deeply ministered to me and I pray it does for you.
The deeper you walk with God, the more you will get to rely on the spiritual eyes of faith. Over the last year, the Crazy Faith Series by Pastor Mike Todd has deeply challenged me through the Holy Spirit in countless ways.
In the natural realm, what I am believing God for in my vision, faith, love, and finances make no sense at all. In many ways, the circumstances are currently the total opposite.
I feel like I am in my own version of bootcamp or Training Faith. At the right time, I will reveal every bit of the testimony.
How are you believing and living your life?
Does your faith show on a daily basis?
What new ways could you stretch your faith?
Write today's verse down and carry it with you.
Set an alarm to speak the verse out loud.
Consider other faith verses to help you.
Play songs of faith and worship daily.
Record your prayers on your phone.
Listen to your prayers.
Ask others to pray for you.

Fighting for Freedom
Walking from fear to faith and fighting for freedom is not for the faint of heart. The more you tune in and act in alignment, the clearer it gets. In each moment, you have a choice to choose faith or fear. The choices you make create the reality you have over time.
I choose to crawl, walk or run from fear to faith each and every moment. I hope you do too.
