Learning to stand up in our confidence is a life-long, ever changing journey. What even is confidence and how do we get it? and why do we feel confident in some areas and not others?
As we look at getting Healthy in 2021, we feel that this topic of confidence is important for our journey ahead.
Alli Worthington, author, business coach, and speaker gives us sharp insight on this topic. Her book, Standing Strong: A Woman’s Guide To Overcoming Adversity And Living With Confidence offers us a road map for developing confidence in our lives, both this year and life long!
Moving our bodies is essential for health. Running and walking is one simple, yet powerful way to do that. Running and track coaches Shawn Young and Dorina Gilmore-Young give us some strategies on how to start even if the thought of running a block sounds exhausting. We cover so much more than running though. We hear their story of love after tragedy, how running can be a spiritual practice, finding community in exercise, how to get kids moving, and setting goals and face setbacks.
These two met through running, but their story took a few turns on the trail and in life before they married. Part love story, part training guide, this episode of The Open Door Sisterhood Podcast reminds us that moving our bodies can get us closer to God and to each other. That sounds like so much more than losing a few new year pounds, doesn't it? Grab your earbuds and go on a walk outside and listen to this special conversation with husband and wife and co-authors of the new book Run, Walk, Soar, Shawn Young and Dorina Gilmore-Young.
s your relationship with alcohol complicated and layered? Do you or does someone you know struggle with wine-o-clock or with keeping alcohol in check? You aren’t alone. In fact, it is a common struggle.
Jenn Kautsch, founder of sobersis.com, is a pioneer of sober minded living. She leads a community of women who are gray area drinkers. No labels, no all or nothing mentality, but women who feel as though drinking is a bit more prominent in their lives than they want it to be.
In this conversation you will find a sober-minded approach to life that is infused with love, authenticity, acceptance, freedom, and support.
As we head out of the holiday season and into the new year, we may be tempted to swing from extremes when it comes to food. We've enjoyed more than we should and now we are going to focus on rigidity. Tilly Dillehay challenges us to examine our relationship with food and our own tendencies that take us away from God's good intent: to enjoy the gift of food for the flourishing of our bodies and relationships.
Tilly talks about "four poles" of extremes and how we can shift our mindsets away from extremes toward health. As a woman who struggled with an eating disorder for years, Tilly knows how food can be used as an exterior control tool for inner turmoil. Her solution to a healthy approach to food is grace and relationships. When we seek more of who God is and his purposes here on earth, we become less obsessed with food and more likely to enjoy and use it with a healthy lens.
This isn't a conversation about how to lose the COVID-20 you gained in 2020 or how to cook with a calorie count in mind, it is a step back that asks What was God's intent with food in the first place? And how can I experience his goodness through meals with others?
