Who am I to be a leader?

Today brought up a barrage of emotions about who I am. This journey is just starting and I'm already feeling overwhelmed, inadequate, and shut down.

Who am I? 

Who am I to be the leader of women who need more self love? How can I guide them to be any better than they are today? Are my tools really sufficient to make a difference? 

I found myself spiraling down into a pity party. Poor me. I can never be good enough to be the person I want to be. I will never be a leader. I will never be a teacher. I will never make a difference in the lives of my fellow women? 

Thank heavens I have a husband who can help me talk through these things today. He pointed out a pattern that I have of finding ways that I am not good enough, then trying to prove that I am right. I've been here before a few times. Sometimes I give up and sometimes I keep stepping forward with faith. 
This time I KNOW that God has given me a message to share and I will do my best to share what is in my heart and to help the women and men that I am sent here to help. 

So I am letting go of the "I'm not good enough" attitude and pressing on through this tunnel until I can see the light on the other side. Because I know that God loves me. I know that I am good enough. And I know that I was sent here to help others to know these things about themselves too. 

My message is simple. We are here to experience JOY, and we can only experience the fullness of joy when our bodies are working properly for us. It is our responsibility to take care of them so they will be our friends, helping us to serve, love, and experience life at it's fullest! 

Our bodies are a gift from God and we need to treat them like the incredible gift that they are! 

I'm going to use my body to spread this happy message and be grateful for my health and my strength to be able to share the voice that is inside of me. Even if I only change the life of one person, it is enough. 

Be joyful my friends! 

Love, Jenifer

Coming Soon: Reboot Your Body Image Course

In this world full of comparison, perfectionism, and judgement, it is impossible for any of us to grow up unscathed by the evils of society. It hurts. We are told we should look like so-and-so.

Entire magazine articles are written about the model who went to the beach and she had CELLULITE for goodness sake! How could she ever show those thighs in public??? *sigh* What a world this is. 

How do we navigate these muddy waters? How do we protect our daughters from feeling like they are failures because they have cellulite too? We live in a country with an obesity epidemic and we are holding ourselves to the standard of the starving supermodel. 

Something has got to give here, folks. 

How do we not only cope in this world of "lose 10 pounds in 10 days"? And how do we learn to love the body we are in when every news station, magazine, and TV show is telling us that we aren't perfect and we need 10,000 different products to help us get closer to that goal of being the photo-shopped starving model? 

First of all, you have to start from the foundation. If the foundation is shaky then the whole building is unstable. In the Reboot Your Body Image course I teach you how to find the cracks in your beliefs, and start to repair them. We find the source of the self image issues and we work together on correcting them. It is a miraculous process that will open up new perspectives about your body and your entire life. 

We will talk about where these beliefs came from, how to move past them, how to build new beliefs and new habits, and how to really see your body as the gift from God that it is! 

Updates will be posted as the class is prepared. Check back soon! I'll post our Facebook page when it is ready as well!
