Knowledge is not the same as wisdom, wisdom is doing. Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what’s good for you, they don’t want you to find your own answers because they want you to believe theirs. Stop gathering information from outside of yourself and start gathering it from the inside, people are afraid of what’s inside and that’s the only place you are ever going to find what you need. Why can’t you sleep? is it because late at night when you’re alone and the silence screams you get a little scared because everything feels so empty? do you feel like you are losing your mind? sometimes you have to lose your mind to come to your senses. Maybe it’s because you want to be someone who uses his mind and his body in ways that most would never have the courage to, maybe it’s because you are destined to be a real warrior to serve others instead of being a worrier of self-loathing. To be a warrior is to be shielded in Gods armor of his perfect design with his word as your sword, the holy ghost as your army, and his love as your joy that brings you authentic peace. A warrior is not about perfection or victory, or invulnerability, a warrior is about absolute vulnerability. That’s the only true courage.
The mind is just a reflex organ, it reacts to everything. It is the mind you must conquer because where the mind goes the body will follow and once you master your emotions you are in control of your destiny. It’s all about leverage, life is about developing the wisdom to apply the right leverage in the right place at the right time. Take a personal inventory of your life and “take out the trash” everything that is negative and not serving you is “trash.” The trash is everything that is keeping you from the only thing that matters, this moment, here, now. When you are in the here and now you will be amazed at what you can do and how well you can do it. Are you in the past gloating, holding on to attachments, are you in the past vengeful letting your emotions control you, are you living in reaction or are you in the present living on purpose? all you have is right now.
A warrior acts only a fool reacts, death isn’t sad what is sad is that most people never live fully and a life lived in fear is a life half lived. Stop holding on to the past because all you have is right now and if you knew you had one minute to live and were to ask yourself “have I really lived” could you say “YES, passionately, fully, and I am so exhausted I am ready” because I want you to experience everything you love and love everything you experience, find the beauty where there was none. Remember, when you don’t get what you want you suffer and when you get what you want you still suffer because you can’t hold onto it forever. Pride of oneself and genuine love for others cannot coexist therefore one must give up what one cannot keep to get what one cannot lose… Understand that just because things don’t always work the way you want you don’t give up on your dreams you give up the only thing you never had, control, realize that either way whatever happens you are exceptional.
Be “present” and live fully engaged in the moment to experience life fully with the knowledge that there is never nothing going on, there are no ordinary moments, make time to experience the timeless moments of the lives around you because you may be the only person who is a witness to another’s existence and the beauty of their life. The people that are the hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most, you will never be better nor will you ever be less, just be conscious of your choices and responsible for your actions. Every action has it’s price and it’s pleasure, recognizing both sides and is becoming realistic and responsible for your actions.
Life has three rules, paradox, humor and change, life is a mystery don’t waste time trying to figure it out, keep your sense of humor especially about yourself because it is a strength beyond all measure, know that nothing stays the same. The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination, always ask yourself three questions;
1. where are you? here
2. what time is it? now
3. what are you? this moment…

Forgiveness To Fitness ~ Bath Lake with our Guests at Medicine Park facing fears and healing souls…
It is so nice to see so many familiar faces and it is so exciting to see so many new faces. I thought that by having only 50 participants it might seem small but instead we are growing closer into a strong family as we invite new family members in to make them feel welcome… I am looking forward to what tomorrow brings
Whoever, whatever and wherever you are, remember you are never alone, words are powerful as God speaks through everyone. Your influence on the lives of others you may never see, you may think you are barely a drop in the bucket yet that drop creates waves of influence that change the world to make it a better place for generations to come…
There is nothing greater than our lord Jesus Christ and his infinite, everlasting love for us. He died for you and for me so that his blood of redemption may flow through our veins that we may live in gratitude and forgiveness…
Today is day is day 5 of our “Forgiveness To Fitness” retreat and we are going to take a moment to recognize how abundantly blessed each and everyone of us truly are. We are hiking and visiting this cave and sharing stories about how God has blessed our lives so abundantly…
Good morning from “Forgiveness To Fitness” day 4, I know today will be beautiful in Gods grace!!!…
I am EXCITED to hear how Kirsten challenges you today…
We all have opportunities for improvement and I love the person you are and the person I am becoming because of you, I know I have many opportunities for improvement and every day I search for new ways to be a pleasure in the eyes of God so that he may continue to bless me. Know that in life one person appreciates your extraordinary talents because of your opportunities for improvement not in spite of them and that person is me. What you may see as flaws are the flowers in Gods beautiful garden of life to share with this beautiful world and grow in the lives of those you touch with your acts of kindness that speaks volumes of an inner strength that few find within themselves.
We are on day 3 of “Forgiveness To Fitness” and I am grateful for waking in God’s glory and amazing grace…
WOW… I am so grateful to have my father here with me and facilitating this very special event, what makes this event rare is that my father is co-facilitating with his infinite wisdom. Today is our very first day of our Forgiveness To Fitness retreat and everybody was so excited and so full of energy ready to take on the world! I am so proud of each and everyone of you for showing up today, not just for showing up for this event, but for showing up for your dreams and living life fully present and fully engaged.
Take a moment right now, quick without thinking; tell me what are you grateful for? Write it down and speak it, you are certain to get more of it! If you are like me, an over-achiever, tell me three things you are grateful for and write those down then shout them out!!!

1 John 4:4
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
