What an Incredible 8 Days…

What an incredible 8 days.!!
What appeared to be simply Christian Yoga Teacher training turned into a journey of reflection, the over-coming of fears, physical challenges to the point of exhaustion, incredible teaching of life plus yoga all wrapped up in Jesus.
With each day I was challenged on so many levels. You know the kind of challenges that you are not sure your strong enough to tackle. The kind that make you ask these questions:
• Where have you come from?
• Where do you want to go?
• Who is your advocate for the journey?
• What am I doing with the time God has given me?
• And am I making a difference in the every day lives of others?
How could I have known the many fragile things in my heart that would surface during these 8 days?
Checking in at the Jackson airport shook me to my core. I had to walk right through the pathway where I dropped Dennis off that last time. His words echoed in my ears. “ Baby, always remember how much I love you.” Last words He ever spoke to me. What a blessing and gift from God.
I was still crying as I took my seat on the plane thinking back on the day we flew out to try to get him home.
I call these moments markers. Specific moments in time (your life) that change you forever.
About 5 days in I truly wondered if I would be able to complete the training. It pushed me in ways I’ve never been pushed. I kept clinging to the conversations Dennis and I had had about this training many times over the last few years. It’s really been about a 5-year process.
During Graduation yesterday I was anointed with oil while prayer was being spoken over me. I clung tight to Dennis’ wedding ring. It was as if I could hear him whisper, “you did it baby.”
My prayer is that moving forward, this training, this transformation, can be a stepping stone, a tool, to help keep myself healthy and to help other women get healthier, happier and whole.
I am so grateful for every teacher who helped mold me and who spoke into my life these past 8 days. May blessings come back to each of you.
God is so good and HE wants good for each of our lives. RYT-200, RYFT-200


roller coaster
I bet there are many of you who actually stand in line to ride one of these things. NOT ME. i’ve always run from them. Upside down and all around is NOT for me. Of course these last, almost 7 months, have been just like living on a roller-coaster. The uncertainly of the next more, the fast turn, the drop, your heart racing, the white knuckles from holding on for dear life. With each passing day come new challenges. I Keep praying that the HOLE in my heart will heal and this roller- coaster ride will END.
Do you feel that way sometimes.? Do you feel like your on a roller- coaster ride? Your situation is probably different from mine but many things in life can break us down, make us feel unsure, and alone. Hurts and disappointments can SHAKE us and cut us to our core. Is that you today? IF SO, I want you to read the following words. Read them slow, read them two or three times if you need to.
Read them knowing that we have a MIGHTY GOD who is here for us even when we feel alone. He is waiting for us to peel our hands off the bar of the roller- coaster and TRUST in him.
Listen to Him….
“Regardless of what comes at you. I am with you to bring you through to clarity and victory. Be strong and resolute and refuse to allow fear and panic to take you out of the flow of my spirit. ( have you found yourself out of His spirit lately?) Take whatever time is necessary to quiet your thoughts and emotions and THEN ask for wisdom about your next step. I will show you the way”. GET OFF THE ROLLER-COASTER. ( last 5 words added by me)
