Food Confessions - Food, Emotion, and finding your authority

Uncategorized Nov 02, 2021

You open the fridge, you see the cupcakes, you’re tired - it’s been a long day, you decide to just eat one, then you feel terrible.  WHY would I eat that at 10pm??  Now the one next to it starts to look really good - and you know where it goes from here.

Whit and Jake do it too - we eat refined sugar, empty calories, the foods that make our joints hurt or make us feel bloated ...and we do it because it is just such an easy way to feel a little bit better.

But the story doesn’t have to end there.  When you experience this, it is NOT the final nail in the coffin or the straw or the camel’s back.  It’s part of being a human being and it doesn’t have to stop you from reaching your health goals.  You don’t even have to punish yourself to get “back on track” ...there’s no track.  It’s a metaphor.  It’s an analogy. 

And we’ll be teaching you (or just reminding you) how to...

Masks, Vaccines, COVID, and the People you Love

Uncategorized Oct 19, 2021

What do you do when the people you love have the opposite view as you on the day’s hot button issue?  What if it’s your coworker that you see everyday ...or your parents, your kids, or your spouse?

How do you stay in the conversation when the conversation feels shut down right from the start?

All you want is to feel heard, respected, valued - is this the end of your friendship?  Your family?  Your marriage?  Is this the hill you want to die on?

Learn how this can be EXACTLY what you need to bulletproof your relationships and uplevel your skill at LOVING PEOPLE.

“If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love.  Do no, by your eating, destroy someone for whom Christ died.” 

Romans 14:15

Whit’s Take on Stress

Uncategorized Oct 12, 2021

Whit’s stress management style is extremely effective and a bit different than Jake’s.  She treats stress as an emotion and uses her breath and meditation as effective ways to dance with it.

It is important to Whit that she doesn’t attack, resist, or attempt to escape from stress.  She finds it most effective to allow it to be there, then allow it to move through her body, so she can get back to bolding pursuing the purposes God has put on her heart.

How to Handle Stress

Uncategorized Oct 05, 2021

The Holidays are fast approaching and Whit and I hear so much about the “stress” of the time period.  In this video we decided to tackle the topic head on!!

  1. We built a scouting report around stress
  2. We learned to recognize it in all 5 of its forms (Fight, Flight, Freeze, Fawn, Flop)
  3. We chose to allow it
  4. We build a mental framework that helps it do it’s thing and move on

And we chest a little at the end by talking about the process of simply placing it at the feet of Jesus :)

Faith. Adventure. Purpose. The Impact of Identity
16:03
 

Your identity becomes a filter through which all possibilities for your life must pass.  That makes the ability and desire to adjust the settings on that filter extremely important.

If you a business builder, you know first hand that your business has an identity of it’s own - and THAT identity is going to have a massive impact on what is possible for your business

Take a behind the scenes look at the role IDENTITY plays in business building and how it has shaped Jake and Whit

Title: Is the Baby a Boy or a Girl?

Uncategorized Sep 14, 2021

We’ve got a few more days of waiting to find out if we’re having a boy or a girl, so we’re taking this opportunity to look at some of the mindset strategies surrounding expectations, control, and disappointment.

Especially that disappointment is 100% determined by expectation ...but does that make expectations bad?  Or is disappointment actually okay?

Don’t miss the gender reveal coming soon!!

How to Remain Steadfast

Uncategorized Sep 07, 2021

 

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, remain Steadfast. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:58

 

Steadfast ...immovable ...unwavering.  What images do these conjure up in your mind?  Maximus Meridius from Gladiator?  William Wallace from Braveheart?  Maybe an image of Moses and his staff leaning forward with supernatural strength against an insurmountable force?

 

Nah - I don’t find these so great.  

 

Join in my trying on a different approach to rise up to tha challenge that Paul offers in 1st Corinthians.

The Danger of Thinking you Know

Uncategorized Aug 31, 2021

There’s an incredibly common message in the growth community that you don’t need to know “The How” - It is a POWERFUL message that combats the belief that we need to know exactly what to do in order to do anything properly.  

 

There’s a subtle other, and less talked about twist on this though.  Thinning that you DO know how ...often followed by, “And I am not capable!”

 

I quietly suffered with this lie in my head for a few years after a vasectomy.  I was incapable of offering Whit the family she wanted, I was outside of God's plan for our marriage, and I had blown it with a selfish decision.  And it felt so true because “I know exactly how pregnancy happens ...and I’m not capable.

 

Or maybe - I don’t know as much as I think I do and when I see an impossible situation I will expect God to do a miracle.

Ask Steadfast: How to be Kind to Yourself

Uncategorized Aug 24, 2021

 

This is probably the 3rd most common myth we hear on a daily basis ...If I’m nice to myself, I’ll let myself off the hook and I’ll become complacent, lazy, and stagnant.

 

I’d try to be more gentle and open minded with this  ...but it’s just plain false!!

 

Try this little thought experiment: 

 

Think about that grade school teacher that you loved ...that you STILL smile when you think about.  Think about the love of learning that was lit up inside you.  Possibly only to be snuffed out by some power hungry overbearing taskmaster who could never be pleased a few years later.

 

Now ...which teacher are you choosing to be when you talk to you?  And what is the justification for that again?  Effectiveness???
