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!

Ugh, the pressure!! If it isn’t resolutions, it is the one word for the year trend. Now, don’t get me wrong, I like this. I really do and I think it is important! But coming up with that one word! Man! That can be problematic, right?!? So I started praying about it. God, what do you want to do with my life in 2019? How can I grow closer to you, Lord? I don’t want to go through the motions. I want real growth! I want Christ evidenced in me! What do I need to address in my life that is holding me back from being fully devoted to you, Lord?
Those were some of my prayers and I felt like He answered. But let me tell you, I didn’t like the word that I was “hearing!” I didn’t like it at all!! I mean, last year my word was DETERMINATION. I want an empowering word like that!! Instead, God in His infinite wisdom gave me the word REVEAL. What?!? Reveal?!?
The more I thought about it, the more it just made sense. Everyday, I help people deal with the junk that has been holding them back so that they can move forward on their health journey. Yet when it comes to my own body, mind and soul health journey; I would rather just move forward at a quick pace. Pushing away the difficult stuff, shoving it deep down inside and not wanting to face it or deal with it. This is my habit, this is my tendency, this is what I am used to doing. I mean I do this by default!!!
But I know. Deep down, I truly know that there are things I need to face. Past hurts, struggles and fears that I need to face. So I need God to reveal these things to me. I don’t want anything holding me back from being fully committed, fully devoted to my Lord and Savior. I don’t want to be a surface Christian and just go through the dang motions!!! I want more for my life and the life of my family. I know God has more for me! So for me to move forward, I need Him to reveal the things that have held me back.
I’m curious if you have a word for this year. What is it?
