When I least expect it, God gives such gracious gifts. Today it was a chance encounter on a beach that I didn't know existed. I came to Indiana for grade school basketball, and I walk away with a soul-stirring story from my favorite lake.

You were made for life. LIFE! You are a masterpiece designed by God. Knit together to be the #MessyMiracle that you are today. Yes, you're a mess. I'm a mess. We're all a mess. But Someone loves you so much that He came to rescue you from your mess. He came to give you life to the FULL. In heaven, yes! But also now. Each and every day. Want to learn? Stay with me, and we'll learn to rest in Him together.
It's going to be ok.
Be Still,

Since I've now come out of hiding as a #messymiracle, I'm just going to lay it all out there. I've gained 30 pounds in the last two years. I've been blaming it on my medication, which could very well be a big part of the problem. But I'm not healthy, you guys. I'm not exercising. I've been so focused on my mental and spiritual health. Now it's time to pour into my physical health, too. I can't serve well if my body is not well. I signed up for #weightwatchers tonight. I get 30 points a day and a fit goal of 21 points. I don't know how this will go, but I'm going to #twirl through. I promise I won't write about it all the time, but authenticity is important to me. I spent way too much of my life trying to keep it all together. I can't do life alone. Been there, done that. Life is just better lived with a team!

Eileen SchnelleGood for you! WW is a good program. I used to do WW @Work & Pilates but had to quit when I lost my job. I need to lose 15-20 lbs too and currently only walking. As we age it's little more of a challenge but we can do it. Enjoyed your TWIRL message. Take care.

I have learned (the hard way) that rest is key. Not simply physical rest, but also emotional, spiritual, and mental rest. After all the excitement of the @fearlesswomenstl event last night, today is purposefully a time of gentle #selfcare and doing things I love. It's always a good idea to rest, #MessyMiracle And fun fashion prints don't hurt either! ... See MoreSee Less
