Do you play it safe? Financially? Physically? Relationally? Let's talk about the financial aspect for a moment. We are blessed to be a blessing. Random act of financial generosity is one of the priorities on our family vision board this year. To be honest, we had always committed to tithing because we really do believe that everything we have is God’s. In the last 4 months, though, God has been blessing our home business and there was the opportunity to step out even deeper. I felt God say “when you’re faithful with the little, I will give you more…but then there is a greater responsibility with that too.” The more we are blessed the more we are to be a blessing. That’s just truth.
We always wait on God to provide the opportunity and he did for February! This morning I am so excited to be supporting one of my sweet friends, Raisa. She has such a beautiful heart and it is always grounded in OTHERS. This March she is heading out for Honduras, specifically, a severely impoverished neighborhood in Cofradia. The funds raised will be used solely to fill more than 150 backpacks with school supplies for the children in this community. The school year just began in Honduras at the beginning of February-- unfortunately, the kids in this small neighborhood are in serious need of supplies to be ready for learning!
You know what’s wild? She said to me “I don’t need the money to travel because I am paying for my own flight, hotel, transportation and food…this fundraiser money is JUST of the backpacks and school supplies for the kids.”
Seriously, ya’ll…if you feel the tug on your heart to step out and give of your finances…what a beautiful opportunity to do so! To support Raisa and her mission to provide backpacks an school supplies for those children click here! Love watching God use you sister!
I talk about it a LOT but it’s ALL I see when I look back to who I once was BEFORE I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. Once we follow Jesus, EVERYTHING should change. 🌸How we see the world. 🌸How we see ourselves. 🌸How we see our neighbor. 🌸How we see our bodies. 🌸How we see our mission.
As memories continue to pop up on Facebook, it just leaves me on my knees praising God for never giving up on me and relentlessly pursuing my heart.
WHY will God ALWAYS be a part of the faith +fitness groups I run? WHY will Jesus always be talked about and His Word the cornerstone of my health + fitness business? Because…
I could help you gain an external transformation. I could help you have a before and after photo. I can help you see results on the scale. But sister, if I don’t show you what Jesus has done for me…if I don’t lead you on a path where you can have a personal encounter with Him and have your life TRULY change…then I have only made an earthly impact and not an ETERNAL one.
My name is Caren. I am a faith + fitness coach committed to serving women in health while helping them achieve an ✨INSIDE✨out transformation as they encounter Jesus. When Jesus took hold of my life and UNTANGLED my mess with health…it became my mission to help untangle my sisters. I want you to see yourself as Jesus does. This will be the key to your health journey. Suddenly, it’s not about you but about obedience to Him.
So whether you’re someone ready to draw closer to Jesus while committing your health to Him or a sister who has the passion to serve others in health and want to consider becoming a lifestyle coach alongside our team, I would love to talk with you.
You have to be aligned with the mission of Team Race2Serve. I have no interest in recruiting a coach who doesn’t believe in an inside out transformation. Yes you will help people. Yes you will grow an additional income for your family. But sister, it goes deeper. Your ultimate purpose is to make an IMPACT. Without the right positioning of your heart, this opportunity only goes as far as an earthly impact and that’s not what I am interested in. Are you ready to connect? Connect with me here.
JESUS. Empty me. Empty me of pride, selfishness, doubts, discontentment, my will, my agenda, my “problem solver” self.
JESUS. Fill me. Fill me with Your way, Your will, Your presence, Your peace, Your love, Your joy, Your agenda, Your unfathomable ability to put things back in their place.
JESUS. I need you. There can be no confidence in the flesh. Only you. I choose YOU. Strip me. Prune me. Remove the scales that have hardened my heart from hearing Your voice.
JESUS. I am prone to wander. This leads me to discontentment and striving. But today...I will not be shaken because I am putting my faith and hope in YOU. Not in what my hands can produce. Not in my expectations of how success should look. Not in what I want to see. Help me to see everything through YOUR lens.
Restore my peace. Restore my God-fidence. Restore my joy. Put everything back in its place. In your presence, I find my identity and purpose. I give you my life. I give you my family. I give you my business. I give you our finances. I give you my fears. I will move in obedience and trust in what YOU see. I love you. Amen.
