Today was an exciting day! Here’s to putting myself out there, taking a chance & jumping with no net! .
It’s so exciting to jump! Jump into the unknown, break out of your comfort zone and go on faith & trust!
It’s funny how The Universe shows up & has your back when you take a risk!!!! Nothing is actually risky - it’s just in your head! .
✨ Scared & doing it anyway!!!!! ✨
We give our children wings when we believe in them. We are them wind beneath their wings when we trust in their dreams and direct them which way to go. We eventually must let go when it’s time for them to fly.
Children need to dream big and know that, despite how hard life can be, they can achieve whatever they want. Nourish their self-esteem and with encouragement and help them see that everything they need for success is inside them.👶👧👦 We want our children to believe in their potential. We want them to know that by being themselves, they will always win. We want them to soar high in every leap of faith they take!

This sums up my day in many ways and yet - I wouldn’t want to do things differently. I took a leap of faith, closed my busy massage practice in Denver, moved to St Francis, KS - have continued my massage practice here and found a F R E E business opportunity I didn’t know existed until I saw some friends succeeding with it.
Spent my day with an emergency client at 6 this morning, started baking for this weekends Cheyenne County KS Farmers Market, went to a fund-raising meeting, saw another client, had lunch with my SIL for her 🎂, another massage client and then went to HS volleyball games to cheer on the St. Francis Lady Indian Volleyball team, drove back to SF, received a call from my nephew asking for help with his new face products and came home.
You see, this leap of faith wasn’t just for me and it’s not just about amazing people and products. It’s about finding balance and getting to do the things I moved here to do. It’s about freedom and flexibility to spend time with the people I ❤️. Are you ready to take a leap? There’s plenty of room for us to grow together. Come on 👏 What are you waiting for❓
Go ahead. Make the leap. Don’t let the fear of falling keep you back. It would be worse to live with regret than to live with a sore bum from the fall. •
Life changes are hard. Never easy. And not always fun. But what is waiting on the other side may be just as good as what’s on this side. Maybe even better? If you feel God leading you in a new direction or down a new path. Jump with both feet and follow him right where he is leading you. Plus, if He is guiding you, you won’t fall. No need to worry about the sore bum.
A cutting cake, cupcakes, and cookies? The perfect dessert bar for your celebration. Congrats Josh and Hunter! Thanks for letting us bake your reception a little sweeter. 💙

When you dream of your wedding day, do you think about what your cake or dessert bar will look like? What will it include? What are your favorite treats? 🧁
I’m excited to be your wedding baker. 💛
This picture says it ALL😱
I just LOVE looking at Jenn’s transformations. We all have those skinny jeans in the back of our closets. I use to have them, and I just donated them because they were TOO BIG. Yay me 😄. HER STORY ⬇️⬇️ My name is Jenn!
I started my health journey 5 months ago and I have officially lost 72 pounds 😀
I started this journey because I knew I had to change how things were. I was unhealthy, unhappy with how I looked, felt miserable on the inside, and I just wasn't giving my children the best version of myself...We all deserved better.
I tried so many ways to lose the weight before, but I failed at them all as I continued to gain more... ❤️That was until I found this amazing program❤️
I watched transformation stories that a friend of mine was sharing, and after 2 weeks I reached out to her to enquire about how all of these people were getting these incredible results. After a brief phone call with her I said YES to me, she became my health coach, and my journey began.
This proved to be the best decision I have ever made!
Since reaching a healthier weight:
*I no longer dodge mirrors or having photos taken *I sleep better than I have in years
* I am more positive *I am able to be more active physically * I have amazing energy *I have a new zest on life
*I manage stress better *I have given my children a more energetic mommy
*I have inner peace and I'm loving myself like I should *I am overall HAPPIER!
I love how easy this program is and how beautifully it has fit into my hectic life! It's taught me so much about myself, and it also helped me to develop new healthy habits that I will carry with me for the rest of my life, and I will be passing this knowledge onto my children as well 😀
I broke the chains by investing in my health, and the payoff has been priceless❤️ #healthcoach#TransformationTuesday#NowIsYourTime#LeapOfFaith#letsdoittogether
“I know there is more to me than this”
Have you ever thought that about your life? I feel you!! I know you!! This was a thought I was having one summer while scrolling Facebook (yep, several years ago when fb was THE THING😜). I just so happened to scroll past a total stranger’s ad about a fitness biz she worked from her home along with her bestie💞. I had no clue what it was, how it worked, how she got paid- nothing. But what I did know was this 👉🏼 I was completely, and utterly intrigued 🙌🏻 I wanted to know more! I NEEDED to know more!
If you’ve ever thought there must be more to your life, let’s chat!! We have an info sesh going on Friday🙌🏻. Drop a 💞 for your invite- no strings attached 🤗
Hi! I’m Michelle and decided to take a #leapoffaith and #freelance ! I was beyond scared & nervous to leave my 9-5 job (which was more 24/7) last year. I might have even suffered from corporate avoidance syndrome. 😳Anyone else experience this?? As I went on my #selfdiscovery journey, I learned SO much that I would’ve never experienced sitting in a cubicle all day. I’m grateful for the #networking , #relationships , learning about #selflove and excited to launch my first official #business ! 🙌🏼 I have 25 years of administrative experience. I have worked for Small Businesses to Corporations as an Office Manager, Executive Assistant and Operations Manager. A majority of my career has been in the Live Entertainment Production Industry overseeing the labor aspect of numerous concerts, festivals and more.
I’m naturally a problem solver and always looking for ways to make things more efficient. I am passionate about helping others whether its to be better versions of themselves or to guide them on how to see “the bigger picture” of their business, I love to see people excel and succeed. ❇️ Visit my website to learn more about me!
Have you ever felt like God was telling you to do something that was huge or didn’t make sense; something that would require a lot of faith? Have you ever struggled to have the courage to go for it? I have 🙋🏾♀️
I’ve struggled with stepping out on faith more than once and all I wanted was to be 100% sure I was not making mistake before I took the first step. .
I think we desire God to give us a clear yes or no because we want what’s easy. We don’t want to deal with the risk of the unknown. But If we knew how everything would play out beforehand, it wouldn’t require faith. And if God simply dropped signs out the sky every time we asked, how would we learn to discern His voice? We’d be too dependent on what we could see. But the Bible tells us....Read the rest on the blog. Link in profile 👉
What bible verse helps you when your faith is being tested? I’d love to know! .
𝐈 𝐀𝐌 𝐒𝐎 𝐈𝐌𝐏𝐑𝐄𝐒𝐒𝐄𝐃 𝐁𝐘 𝐌𝐘 𝐂𝐋𝐈𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐒!!! 💖
As many of you know, I recently launched Steel Fitness Company 🚀
SFC helps the most amazing people reach their fitness, nutrition, and life goals once and for all! ✨
I named SFC because of a common phrase my dad used growing up: “You can't hurt steel.” 😜
But, I also fell in love with the definition of steel (verb) - where one perseveres and pushes through the uncomfortable 💪🏽
My SFC clients have turned my dream of people turning their goals into a reality. Here’s why SFC clients are creating the lives they have been dreaming of:
1️⃣ They uncovered and unleashed their heart's desires from deep within 💎
2️⃣ They took the first step towards change by hiring a coach 🤝
3️⃣ They are crushing the day to day steps 👣
4️⃣ They are encouraging and supporting one another along the way 💕
They are pushing past fears, pride, and anxiety to reach their fitness and weight goals 𝘰𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢𝘭𝘭 💥
They are STEELING themselves every day by...
🔥Walking into the gym for the first time in 30 years! 🏋🏽♀️
🔥 Ditching fad-diets & stepping into THEIR power around food 🥘
🔥Letting go of old limiting beliefs & evolving into more empowered versions of themselves ✨
🔥Challenging old habits and embodying new ways of living 💪🏽
They are trusting the process and feeling so much lighter, freer, and happier both mentally and physically. 💫
I cannot put into words how full and happy my heart feels witnessing their dreams come to fruition. ✨ I hope every one of them feels a fraction of 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘥 like I feel for them right now 🥰
Ugh! Happy heart over here!! 💓
Lastly, this can be 𝐘𝐎𝐔! ☺️ .
I was feeling so stuck and unproductive yesterday, when this beautiful transition in the sky reminded me no situation is going to stay the same forever.
All is constantly changing and I'm grateful for that.
Think about all the things that have happened in your life since last year this day.
I have taken two leaps since last September and they were:
My Job transition
And my Mindset transition
This leap of faith involved me having a basic belief in myself and a fundamental trust in the vision of who, what, and where I want to be in the future, yet what I've learned is that change is not always so clear. When you make a change in your life, you might be opening up your own personal Pandora’s Box.
Over four years ago, I was miserable in my cubicle job doing something that paid me well, but didn’t do anything for anyone except expand the pockets of big companies. I made mistakes and I was reprimanded often for them. I was told I was out of my seat too much. I was told I laughed too much. I was told I was too loud.
This made me feel small and did not motivate me to work harder.
One day, after leaving an uplifting lunch with life coaching friends, it occurred to me that I’d lived in so many apartments and been on so many property tours that maybe I should try to get a job as a leasing agent. 🤔
I reached out to a friend from high school who was in the industry, and she assured me that I would be a great fit and told me three top property management companies to check for job openings. The first website I looked at was Gables. There just so happened to be a position open in the city I had just moved to. Four days later, I had a job. The base pay seemed to be a significant pay cut, but I decided that my happiness was more important than the money in my pocket, and I took a leap of faith that commissions would fill in the gaps where the hourly lacked. 👊🏼
It was the best career decision I ever made. Since June of 2015, I have received endless validation, gratitude, helped encourage people move from all over the country (and the world), and heard many touching stories. I absolutely love my entry-level job that makes me feel like a queen every single day. I love my managers, my coworkers, and my company. I could not have taken a better leap.
This afternoon I received recognition in a major way at a company event and it only makes me want to continue to give more of myself to these people.
Don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith when you feel that what you’re doing isn’t working. The universe will provide. 💫
I know I have many big plans ahead, but Gables Residential and all the people in it will forever hold a huge piece of my heart.
These chubby cheeks are happy af to be indulging in their momma’s food for the past 2 months.
My trip is almost coming to an end and I don’t know what to do with myself.
So much love, good food and sweaty baseball caps.
Today I have been reflecting on why I do Arbonne & here are some of my thoughts. .
Arbonne is more than a side hustle, more than a way to get rich, more than selling amazing nutrition & cosmetics. It is a vehicle. It is a community & a culture that serves, leads, & gives back. It is an opportunity to think of others before yourself. It is a way to grow & develop into the human God calls us to be. It is a way that I have been challenged & encouraged to step out of my comfort zone to be able to have the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself to have more, to do more, to be more & to give more!!
I keep going not because I am always motivated, but because I am committed. I keep going not because it’s always easy, but it’s simple. I keep going because it’s not about me, it’s about helping others, giving to others, & getting to spend time with the most important others! .
I don’t know where you are at or what your thoughts, fears, or hesitations are- you might be a fan of the products or a total skeptic of it all still. Regardless. I challenge you, I encourage you, I INVITE you to do it anyway, do it afraid. Heck, just ask questions. I was so skeptical & probably would still be so judgmental if it wasn’t for a trusted friend caring for me & the Lord softening my heart. JOIN US, take a leap of faith! I can tell you it’s all been so worth it.
P.S. I adore sweet Ella Drew & thankful for this opportunity that allows me to be in her life a little extra than normal & so thankful her mama gets to stay home with her because of this opportunity!!!
Happy Anniversary to me!🎈
It’s been two years since I launched my website!! .
Two years ago, God was calling me to BIG changes. It was scary. It was emotionally challenging. .
One day while serving at lunch duty, adorned in my neon orange vest, I heard God whisper to me. .
He assured me that He wanted me to completely branch off from prior ties and follow Him. .
That was when I launched my website as an Independent Inspirational Speaker, an Independent Parent Education Speaker and an Independent Health and Fitness Coach, all operating under one website.
Now, INDEPENDENT might suggest that I’m doing this all alone, but that could NOT be further from the truth. . 💛I rely on Him for all my speaking engagements, content and details. . 💛I work with a Team for my Health and Fitness business and ministry. .
And you know what? It is really fun. Stepping out in FAITH is a wild ride! It’s been quite the journey. .
Today I spent some time updating my blog posts on my website, and while there is always more work to do, I’m really happy with it. .
I want to take a minute to thank everyone who has supported me along the way in all of my endeavors. I wouldn’t be where I am without you!💛
Feel free to go visit my website and let me know what you think! .
You will find my fav recipes, blog posts, information about public speaking, transformation stories and more!
My name is Denise.
You'll always see me in gym clothes,
If I don't have my make up on then u can guess for sure my hair ain't done, and I'll be looking like a hot mess all day lol I'm not perfect but I sure am trying to be the best version of myself.
I love anything that has to do with health and Fitness and help others 💪
I'm a mom of 3 beautiful kids and yes I still want one more lol
I used to suffer from really bad anxiety and depression but I overcame that!
Left my full time job where I was over worked and underpaid
And now I'm living my best life! 🙌
I took a leap of faith and that was one of best choices I have ever made!
You see one thing I've learned is that in order to grow you have to do the things your most uncomfortable doing, confront your fears! If not, then honey you'll always be stuck doing the same thing over n over again.
So stop putting excuse and just go for it do what you been wanting to do, take that leap of faith!.
I have some tough love for you-
Stop 🛑 making it such a big deal to wake up early and workout. ...
I hear from people on a very regular basis that they “wish” they were more motivated in the morning. They “wish” they could get up earlier and get stuff done. They “wish” they had more dedication to stick with a morning routine.
Well guess what??? Anyone can do this! It’s seriously just a simple decision that you make to be the best version of yourself each day and then committing to do what it takes to work on that. If you want to see and feel a change, you have to make a change. That’s all there is to it.
I think so many people have trained their minds to view early mornings as a challenge, difficult, not enjoyable, a pain. ...
But what if you switched your mindset and viewed it as a way to start your day off more positive, a way to gain energy, a way to boost your mood, a way to be more patient, a way to gain more time in your day?! I can tell you all of this and 💯 know it’s possible because 5 years ago I was the girl who was “wishing” for all of those things. I made the decision to make a change, and now look what’s happened...I’m shouting from the rooftops the importance of winning your mornings because I’ve learned from personal experience the benefits from doing so!
Can I challenge you this week to set your alarm earlier and fuel your mind and body BEFORE work? Try it out, see what happens!
Drop a 🙋🏽♀️🙋🏼♂️below if you are up for it.
Just like a caterpillar shedding its cocoon to become a beautiful butterfly 🦋. In the the last couple of weeks, I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, felt overwhelming joy and crippling sadness. Above all I had to be brave, just that little bit more, enough to push through the safety of my comfort zone. Easy? No! Brave? Maybe.... who knows 🤷♀️ but I’m willing to try.
It’s interesting when you think about a little crawling caterpillar 🐛 living only 2 weeks. (What it imagines will be it’s life.) Then it builds a chrysalis around itself, not knowing what’s going to happen. After another 2 weeks, it emerges and lives 90% of its life being able to fly! 🦋 I need to be more like this! Living my life to the fullest and just when it feels like idk what will happen next and life is getting hard and sometimes even feels a bit dark... I take a leap of faith, and God molds me into something more beautiful than I could ever have imagined! And now I’m able to look back and see my life had purpose! I’m able to fly! 🦋 Along the way ppl encourage you to do the things they’re doing. Maybe get a better job? Start saving for a house? Or even start eating or exercising. They believe in you! Because they were once a caterpillar too! But they know you can become a butterfly if you just keep going! You can’t ever imagine being a butterfly when you’re crawling on the ground. But if you keep going, eventually you will be! 🦋
Wondering what you’re missing out on by not grabbing your kit yet?! I could go on all day but I’ll keep it to my top 5 reasons!!
1. One single oil is not going to change your life, BUT, the kit comes with 12 oils that WILL change your life and can be used for everything from sleep support to glowing skin to cleaning and emotions!
2. It’s the cheapest way to start with oils! The kit is valued at over $400 dollars and we only have to pay $165 - steal of the century.
3. Getting a Starter Kit gives you access to our exclusive community, online classes and a wide range of information on how to use your oils. Basically your new BFFS.
4. Young Living has so many products beyond oils (Makeup, cleaning products, baby essentials, and supplements!) that you can get at a wholesale price once you buy your Starter Kit! ⠀
5. You get to pick a diffuser with your starter kit - we’re obsessed with the Aria but the Desert Mist also holds a special place!!
Are you ready? Link is in my bio! It’s go time, baby!
Do not underestimate the power of believing in yourself.
It’s the smallest and most tremendous decision you can ever make in your life. Because when you start believing in yourself BIG things happen.
We trick ourselves into believing that our success is determined by outside forces. The reality is it all comes down to you.
When you make the decision to step up, be accountable for your life, make no excuses and believe that you will succeed.... you will.
There’s just no other way.
I know this because it happened to me.
I knew I wanted more from life, I knew I had a calling to do something more meaningful, I knew I wanted to create something of my own.... but I didn’t know where to start and (to be perfectly honest) I was struggling to believe I could do it.
I knew I had to do something different. So I took a leap of faith and invested in myself by working with the most amazing business and life coach.
The minute I took the plunge I knew there was no going back - in that instant I was all in - I was going to believe in myself no matter what.
My days are more purposeful.
I’m excited about the future.
I’m creating an online brand and community of likeminded women.
I’m about to launch my first mindset and confidence program.
I’m speaking my truth.
I’m doing what I love.
YOU can have all of this too.
You just need to make the choice to believe in yourself.
16 mile run done! My friend gave me this tank for my birthday & lets just say that I Love It! 🙌 FE male...the original Iron Man. 👊😄. So did it inspire me to sign up for my next full distance Ironman?...maybe! 😂 Either way I am signed up! I am doing IM Florida in 6 weeks! After the century ride my hubby & I did in August, he convinced me to do #imfl in Nov. It wasnt in my race plan or plan at all! BUT he knew my physical training wasn't too far off & he believed I could do it, sooo I took a leap of faith & signed up. Now I have spent the past 2 weeks putting in 15+ hour training weeks, long swims, long runs & a few 90 mile rides to get under my belt. It was more the mental prep I needed to work on since this distance requires so much mental work, but having a supportive husband & family & knowing they believe in me & all that I can do, gave me the confidence to continue to push my limits, believe & be an example of strength to them. So now I am all in mentally & physically. Here we go Ironman Florida!!!! .....and thanks to @cmh100 for the thoughtful & inspiring tank. 🤗
🎉🚨New Job Alert 🚨🎉
One year ago, God gave me instructions to pack up my closet and prepare to relocate cities and start a new career that would contribute to my healing and journey to wholeness. He began to give me a glimpse of the restoration, recompense, and NEWNESS in all areas that would follow my obedience. I didn’t understand ANY OF IT BUT I obeyed! And what a year it has been and after it all, I can say that it ALL makes perfect sense now and that God has been FAITHFUL! I have enjoyed my time at Lee University as the Marketing Coordinator for Sodexo in Cleveland, TN and it was exactly what God showed me it would be as a transition job.
And i’m excited to announce that today I started a new career at FirstBank Mortgage as the Mortgage Digital Media Specialist and God has LITERALLY blown my mind with this job and every other area in my life!! Promise Keeper He is!! ❤️
And the amazing thing is that I (as well as others) thought I was losing last year when in reality God was setting me up to win THE WHOLE TIME!
I can stand flat footed and say that Obedience SAVED my life!! #BlessedUp
