Five Minute Friday- Accept

Every Friday I team up with my friends over at Five Minute Friday for a writing prompt.  Five minutes!  No editing.  No overthinking.  Just letting the words flow.  Todays word…


My fitness and nutrition accountability group committed to reading “Made to Crave” by Lysa Terkeurst for the month of September.


Over the past 20 ish days I have read 19 chapters of an incredible book that has challenged me to take a deeper look at my eating habits and lifestyle.  I just turned the last page of the book this afternoon.

It has been a very freeing month as I have partnered up with a team of ladies and asked the hard questions.  Am I turning to food as comfort when I should be turning to God?  Am I capable of saying “no”?  Should I just accept where I am on this health and fitness journey?

This was actually my second time to read “Made to Crave”, but reading it today as a mom and now health & fitness coach brought an entirely new perspective.  Our cravings point to SO.MUCH.MORE than just a desire for a cold coke or a piece of cake.

This year I committed to going deeper in my health and fitness journey, I had no idea it would take me deeper in my walk with the Lord as well.  My biggest take away from this read?  Sustained discipline…there is freedom in daily surrender and because of Christ I do not have to ACCEPT feeling stuck.

(This book is TOTALLY worth the read.  Grab a friend or two and get ready for an incredibly rewarding journey!)
