You are a Winner!
Champion does not mean first place-first prize.
A Champion is an ardent defender of purpose and people. God is your defender. He is ardent, unwavering, in his devotion to humanity. You count on him to do what only he can do and he will do it for you. You can trust him! Many times we SAY we trust him, but then we continue to take care of everything ourself. We believe he will bless our effort and that’s the extent of our trust. But what about trust that
A small child learning to walk may fall 50 times for he or she succeeds to take a handful of steps.
A kid learning to ride their bike may wibble and wobble and even fall over, but they keep getting up.
They say if you fall off of a horse you should get right back on to eradicate any future fear of riding.
How do you know this is not your year? Though we may fall. We may fail, we may not see the fruit of results God has purposed within us, we
THEY said to not even try it -it would in fact kill you. This didn’t stop Roger Bannister from running the first ever sub-four minute mile. He broke the invisible veil. He pursued the impossible and made it probable that others could do it, too.
What is holding back you? YOU are built strong and to last the test upon you. Move forward, break the invisible barriers before you and gain valuable ground! ~Nicole

Yesterday I was privileged to speak briefly to a team of girls soccer players about nutrition. These girls were all about 13 years of age. Captivating their attention and interaction wasn’t easy. I used questions and analogies to try to get them engaged and it worked to a degree. But for the most part they spent the entire talk not looking at me, but watching all the distractions about the field.
I even brough visual aids and samples of healthier options to try. I spoke of the importance of nutrition in
In our house we have been brain washed, if you will, to believe there are two teams in baseball; the Red Sox or anyone opposing the Yankees. That is what happens when you marry a New Englander. This belief stuck pretty hard in my daughter who is a die hard baseball fan. Last year she was blessed to see the Sox play the Yankees at Fenway. A dream come true for her.
What are your dreams? Most dreams come to pass with God’s hand and some detours, pit stops and roadblocks
“…For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Sam. 16:7
God doesn’t think like we do. God doesn’t chose like we chose.
The Bible says to do unto the least of these…because our least is God’s Great.
My husband has been coaching athletes for over 30 years at all levels. One particular athlete who is now retired is an example of God’s Great. First off, she competed in a sport she is not built for. Most women she would
“The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13
Every Believer has a ministry tucked within the chambers of their heart. It’s been planted there by a Sovereign God who had a special design on your life when He created your life.
My entire childhood and young adult life I was pretty quiet, subdued and introverted.
You’ve been working hard. You’ve be faithful to exercise. You’ve been watching what you eat and your portions…but the weight just isn’t coming off like you would like to see. “What’s wrong? Is it just me?” You may be thinking. There is nothing wrong with you. You are not the exception. Here are a few things to consider if this scenario describes you:
1. You cannot out exercise a bad diet. Period. Results are the product of 70-80% nutrition and 20-30% exercise.
2. You are still drinking soda, even diet, especially diet
Its hard to be a smart cookie when you have a “crummy” attitude.
I love this because when my daughter was small my mother would always tell her, when she did something well/using her head, “you’re a smart cookie.” It’s kind of an inside joke with us. But isn’t it true? It doesn’t matter how gifted, talented, smart, funny or clever you are. If your attitude stinks everything you work so hard to hold together falls apart, just like a crumbly cookie.
Turn it around today, sing praises when you feel like
This is a portion of a text I received yesterday from a woman who is in her own zone, breaking the mold, exploring and realizing her own potential as she helps others. She is finding her purpose through service. The serving of others. But not just any service, the service God is calling her to do. God has something unique for each of us to do.
When your heart and soul are edified you come alive. You know in your heart what to do, what you are meant to do. It’s
