Wife and mom are my two most important titles. I’m a Dietitian by training and like to call myself a Battle Strategist because I firmly believe that we are all warriors! I want us to be empowered warriors with the good energy and health needed to fight our daily battles. We can do this Warrior Moms! We have an important job to do!

The constant, never ending striving is just a trap! Just a tap on the phone to open one of my social media apps instantly reminds me that I’m not doing enough, I don’t have enough and I’m not enough. So I work harder and strive even more. Striving and still feeling like I don’t measure up. The cycle continues over and over and over.
Until……..until I pause and take some quiet time and allow God to speak to my heart. Until I remember to stop talking, to stop striving and just be still! Be still in the presence of my Savior and LISTEN!! This is tough for me!! I’m a busy wife, mom and business woman. Every ounce of my human nature says I don’t have time to stop! I don’t have time to pause for quiet time. I think of my sweet mom who is now in Heaven. One of her absolute favorite verses was “Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10” I’m starting to understand why that was one of her favorites. It is such a powerful reminder. However, it can be so very difficult to do!
But when I finally stop and listen, I hear that still, small voice inside me. The gentle, loving voice from the one who created me. You are enough. I created you. I love you. I died on the cross for you. You are enough!! He reminds me that I am enough because HE is enough!
I don’t have to live up to any type of standard or expectation. He loves me right where I am, as I am. All He wants me to do is turn to Him. All the striving in the world just leaves me feeling empty. When I turn to my Heavenly Father and listen to His voice I feel loved and fulfilled.
