You Get to Be You: There’s Strength in the Waiting – With Sarah Johnson

You doubt your ability. Whether in strength or competence.

I’m not smart enough. I’m not strong enough. I’m not pretty enough, young enough, old enough. I’m not worthy enough. We let this one statement: I’m not enough…dictate and hinder our entire lives.

Are you fighting with Inadequacy in your calling?

Friend, let me tell you now – When God calls you, He equally and abundantly Equips you.

This past year, Sarah and I have seen God act in so many ways. As our provider. As our giver. As our comforter. As our strength. As our beauty from our ashes. As our father. As our friend. Our inadequacies – our weaknesses are made perfect through Him when we allow ourselves to surrender are not enoughs, for his I am Enough.

All that He’s calling you too, you already have the tools in your tool belt. Maybe they are dusty. Maybe you forgot. But it’s time to clean them off…the creativity, the ability, the gifts that you shelved in your life due to your dictation of your worth.

Who you are called to be is already within you – God knows Who you are, because you are His above all things!

What freedom there is in knowing and declaring in your walk that you get to be solely you in every facet of your life. Let’s fight the good fight…for your marriage, for your children, for your friends, for your parents, for your co-workers, for your neighbors, for your community, for the Kingdom…

There is a Godly purpose for your life…let’s shift our mindset and own our today as the opportunity to step into the calling of our lives.

0:00:01 S1: You doubt your ability, whether in strength or competence… I’m not smart enough, I’m not strong enough. I’m not pretty enough. Young of enough, I’m not worthy enough. We let this one statement of, I’m not enough dictate and hinder our entire lives, are you fighting within adequacy and your calling? I have, I do. Even now, from time to time. Friend, sister, let me tell you something, when God calls you, He equally and abundantly equips you. This past year, Sarah, I’ve seen God in so many ways as our provider, as our giver, as our comforter, as our strength, as our beauty from our ashes, as our father as a friar inadequacies, our weaknesses are may profit through him. When we allow ourselves to surrender or not, I miss… For his IAEA that He’s calling you to, you already have the tools in your tool belt, maybe their dusty making you forgot about the complete, but it is time to clean off the creative on the ability of the gifts that you’ve shelved in your life due to your dictation of your way, who you are called to be is already within you.

Let’s shift our mindset and own are today as the opportunity to step into the call anomalies, we are all in pursuit of something more, wherever, whatever, or whoever your more is, I wanna help you get there fully, fully, authentically and truly fit.

0:02:56 S1: Welcome to the fit and faith podcast with me. Samantha is no better time than now to get it, ’cause

0:03:07 S2: I’m so honored to introduce you to a… Sindhi was reflecting, I met literally a year ago, almost to the day, here in Charleroi, not Atherton, that we came… That here at the shopee conference, which I am attending tomorrow, and it has been a life in Olive changing to infor, the both of us. So I’m so happy that you cite her coming to town, kinda

0:03:37 S1: Wanna offer me

0:03:38 S2: That I don’t have a Soto, reconnect me to be… I’m so water here. I know we were supposed to get together. Rally multiple times, and I never went one time to rally the… I was telling Liz on the water, I usually go for five times… I remember you saying that, yeah. And you’re like, no, she doesn’t, yeah. Literally, my goalie here, thankfully, she’s come to me a lot, but I have not come to all that she’s been in transition, so I can’t believe… At the same time, it’s been a year. It doesn’t feel that way. Thankful for social media. We’re gonna stay connected to. You know what you have for breakfast? Onassis been awesome, but even when I just saw, I’m like, oh, I… I wanna know all the things because I obviously do follow when you do your daily devotion and things like that, I know that you’re at Orangetheory, and we have that similar bond in health and consciousness of that, but I wanna know first about where is your book? What’s going on? So I officially saw my cover, to me this past week, which has been so meals, the rites in the can, the editing process has been finished, and so from a year ago, that when we met, it was just kind of a proposal, a concept, an idea.

0:05:00 S2: Do you remember? I written it, so I had a couple of sample chapters that I realized were not even quite chapter, and we just really had some thoughts, and so I took that and after some leave with the publishers, and so I just kind of saying, Yeah, let’s go for this and so it was just time to write and some time to lock myself a way you do that, and so that was an interesting process and very… It would sit in venture in itself. Yeah, sure, actually, just kind of something that is in your heart, ’cause it came from my heart to the story that God has given me to share, but then kind of fleshing that out kind of like as as you’re rolling and changing, so you’re kind of not changing perspectives, but you’re of seeing it through a different process. Absolutely, and so that was really a fateful set to my husband at the… For no analysis. I totally agree with you at all writers as even, I hope that people on the compass, there’s 800 women that go to that, but they can just know that any sort of ministry, it is for the one…

0:06:06 S2: And that one happens to be, you alone do what you’re called to do, and it’s not a lot of pushing Wayanad to kind of like… It’s okay. It just doesn’t… Etcetera. I’m doing this in a moment where the Lord reveal something to me, and so it was just moments with him, so I really do feel like it was just some really special times together, and so doing that, the editing process was probably the most Neckar because it was the first time hearing back from someone that’s not my mom or my sister, everything I do.

0:06:47 S1: I said… He said that, I understand that

0:06:53 S2: I understand or they don’t really know me. So the perception that I was getting in a certain story case wasn’t Little confusing for them, so I just… I like that you kind of evaluate. And I have because I’m achieve it by nature, and someone gives me criticism sometimes, if I take it personally, even though I have those minds at email, I believe and I trust these people. So are your baby and there is a case anyway, that’s for all that, and we got to that process and we just start ideas for the planning on a title, and I’ll be able to reveal soon. Wattle, did you come with the title as I retire them for a year, it’s kind of the same as a little bit different, but I think captures a little bit more, and what I love about the East conferences that you get to share that title and Simon and you can receive different reactions for people if they’re like, What does that mean, or what do you mean by that? Or if they have a negative resistance to that and you understand, okay, how I package it is gonna be so really good is one of the things I was talking about for my big concept is I had to put a sample cover on my one page and my proposal and actually see a week gave me feedback that they love the concept, but when they saw the cover, the deterred them.

0:08:20 S2: Wow. And it was because of… It was because of my… Me being on the cover, and it didn’t have to do that, I couldn’t be on it, cause the picture that I chose it, and it really may be like, that’s very interesting that that would deter someone, but everyone’s gonna have a perspective… Right, and then you hear other people seeing it, or do you… Do this coasting agencies are somewhere they were going… And I do, I did take that PRS to her, and then I realized I shouldn’t do that. And let me just take a step back. So that’s some… So when is it actually like… So yeah, so all launching of 202 that we found, we had it on the title Mennonite, and it really made it real, I think the most real part was writing acknowledgements in the dedication page to me that was just like, whoa, I see. This is pretty cool. And so the first day that I’ve been thinking about is, what can God do in here? What can I do in a life in a year… And it kind of like it’s the emotional because it’s just… Some people might think of years a very long time, and yes, it’s a continuous Tatarstan up, just being faithful with what God has given you to do in your day.

0:09:38 S2: But at the same time, I’m like, Wow, interosseous. I was doing re-doing my one page and I had… The first thing I did was adjust my bio and to see the growth in one year from how I see myself, it has a attitude with it, I was about to tears ’cause I was like, Look at you, would you establish with… In my part, in a self-awareness, self-identity, not a conceded status, who you see me as a grant, you’re fully walk and that are walking in that morass more of how you see or not, and so I’m excited. Expected, of course. And my word for my year last year was expected, and my year for this year, I worked for this year as fruitful. Cool, so it would be interesting to see how God uses that because I was so blown away by densest year. And I’m so expected to see what happens, but I really feel like the fruit that was gonna be coming from this last year is it’s so good to your venture to people in absolute to be able to connect with on the other women that will be here now and then to meet new people…

0:10:51 S2: I said, she speaks was such a pivotal time in my life. I’ve been to so many different conferences in different things, whether it’s a church planting or growing as a leader or this and that, and so when I came, I had so many insecurities, I had so many doubts, so many different things as I belong here or different… Just feelings of just an atlas, remember racing in by myself, I didn’t have a firm, we didn’t have anywhere with me, it was just me and my little Bad good… He’s an Ohio as I wouldn’t have it. Legato emissaries like or like, Okay, I have at these cards that we then put together to me and I was just like, No. And by lacking in and just kind of doing the whole smile at people and you know, you’re like, Are we gonna tell us further, we’re gonna put conversation… For the first time, I didn’t feel inadequate and I feel… And I realized that the process that God had taken me, even my post six months before coming to this place, she sees that he was really doing something inside, and when I wrapped in here and I was in a room, not only was just other women, the other women who have the same treasonous different, just like we all…

0:12:11 S2: Well, Jesus, Oh, we’re here, ’cause we feel like we have to get to it, you have to get to speak here to get to do that, and a lot of our dreams look the same in that way, and for the first time, I didn’t see them as competition, or they were gonna take something from me, and it was something that… One of the ladies that I did a pre-conference thing. So I get all prepare. And she said this, and I’ll never forget it, she said, God does not divide the multiple… It was like, if he has a pizza, my favorite thing for Pi was seven people that I work in, I… He doesn’t just say like, Okay, I’m putting this up. And so I mentioned life now for you, He multiplies what is his hands, and so for me, I was not like I’m a beggar coming to get my scraps, but I’m like, Your daughter became Amador River to teeter. Use our voice and we have a story to tell, even though our dreams may look the same stores in these different… That is definitely something I cherish forever, and I feel like people who say, say community of our competition in the collaboration concepts.

0:13:21 S2: And what does that actually look like? What I remember sitting around the table, just in those amines before we said we’d get on state or something, and you’re passing business part. That’s all I toiling. I actually had created a spreadsheet afterwards and I olomouc a role and after the conference, and I just… I know that God weeps through his hands with purpose, because when I put fresh ones on my book and like I said, a identity concepts, it was so good, so intentional, and he did not let it go to the wayside. But when I was sitting around that table and you’re sharing, tell me about your book, or Tell me why you’re here, ’cause people don’t have that space yet, they don’t really know what they’re called to, they just called. And I love women in that space because they’re so fragile, they’re so vulnerable, I work alongside them for the court creatives, and some people are like, I don’t really know on here, right, I’m just here. And that is so ritually as great as the girl who shows up with the book concept, right, as alone package deal like, Oh, she said to go, she got everything done printed in its hipped, she spent more money on her business for that it…

0:14:41 S2: Exactly, he’s gonna get a book. And that’s not the way that it is. So I love that you shared that you went into such insecurity and you came out with the information, and it’s not information from people, it’s application from that all, but it is also nice to be like, Okay, she saw me, she understood concept, but I feel good about this… And I think that there’s so much intentionality in the way that got a line… Just for me to walk across the room and I would have never guessed. You were in screening. You shared… I was like, I think you did not like as she, Eastlake can use Aldean, all of those emotions get important to play with purpose, right. It’s so true. And I think one thing that I took from it too, was I spent how many days the conference was two, three days, and I felt like I got to know people so much more, and some people that I brush shoulders with all the time. And it was the one question, What is your story? Is that as more ritually? That was their story, so I was connected to the story of retention, their story of why you got placed on here on the Earth.

0:15:53 S2: Whatever it is. Yeah, and I felt like that shaped the way that interactive people and kind of shifted my like, SoHo are you doing or what… What does your problems happen and help you to more of like, what’s your story and how can I be excitement on that with you? And so for me, that’s really changed the way we lead in our church, but of people, I feel like that’s what you’re asking… Absolutely. Also, what’s your obedient? Wanna know how you’re doing. Yeah, great, that’s a… You’re good to Yearwood. One thing to tell somebody, what would be… Go, tell me about… I love how you and your husband are church platoon. Do you call what you did? You’re doing currently interplane, so no Turandot made moves to the CO-pastors with parents right now, so there holding ran doing all of that. And so a very different world to fly, starting something is your culture, to coming in and say, that’s been a future… Both place for me, for sure. Yeah, so it’s been challenging. It’s been awesome in all recalled or husbands from where he was and supported you, and I know he is supportive for the last year to now, the book is done, it’s like a next step to noting how is she seeing me different, are you interacting differently because you feel free from some outfall to…

0:17:28 S2: Yeah, I think that one of the things that I’ve loved about my husband from the get-go, is his ability to share me on my biggest Aland, it doesn’t take a single thing away from him ever… He is totally willing to hang out with the kids so I can finish something or we just do that together, and I think that we’re constantly trying to cheer each other on and always do our best to not ever make each other feel like guilty for any of us and them having three kids, two dogs, a curtain, so there’s just never been a time, honestly, that I can say that I’ve said something and he’s like, This is how I don’t think it’s gonna work. As his first responses, that’s amazing, that… And then he’ll give me something like, Here’s whatever, as simple as I was just at a coffee shop and

0:18:27 S1: I’m having quarter, so I have to like the app as I just called it, every time he is like a game, I don’t even know what it is. I am so done, I’m so incarceration, change a tire, or

0:18:44 S2: I can nurse to do the apostle that were just enough to lean on him, and so I’m like, Hey… And so he’s like in the middle of his work, a very important business and we are… Hold on, is downloading the app on her… Take me one had 15 minutes left before I essentially has run his own race and to his thing and only support me to leave town for a day and coming out with you or someone for that symbolic actually so much to my husband, and I think it’s such a gift to have men support you in such a way that it’s the home front, and I’ve got 20 of girlfriends who are like I got… And then I see bad ship of her is like What nowit, a total different thing when it’s your spouse who is with you set up to sundown, they see you for all that you are… And they still are like, You’ve got this. Totally, yeah, and I just have moments for it, I just feel like, you know, like podcasting different days, I’m like, Hey, he’s so willing to be involved in the areas that I don’t feel as confident or I was like, I can do that.

0:20:06 S2: And then also just covers me as a mom, as a lead, so I’m just super thankful for them, ’cause there were nights where I’ve had a certain deadline, I had to get some stuff done and we just know like This is for all the bus… Absolutely, yeah. And I think, you know, and that’s why I feel I’ve never felt like I’ve had to prove something. Or I don’t need him. I felt such a need of him, and I feel like there are certain things that… Just growing up, I’ve always been an independent woman and raised by a very strong man and data, but I’ve always felt that way, and I just remember when we got married and I was really kind of merging my life of his… And I was so afraid of losing who I was that I resisted like he would just say anything about you as a tower, just like the US, like, I’m not trying position my best, you know, I just had this thing and I just remember, I’m not the whole spirit just saying like, Sara, I’ve given you a mental… And they’re giving penitence I have given him. And so you don’t have to worry about some of those things.

0:21:22 S2: It’s not because you’re, you know, not competent, it’s not because you’re not strong, it’s not because… But it’s because that’s what I’ve given him to hold down in your family. Wow. And so even today, like my daughter, I was wondering like, Okay, dad took the work truck, and so who’s gonna pick us up? And they’re like, You know what, you told me, I have to work out those details to the self, that way of God, and then also in our spouses, there are some things that I don’t need to… About that to my husband. We help him see that he be be responsible for what you’ve called me to be, whatever that looks like. Yeah, absolutely, and that’s really interesting, and I was talking yesterday about the need for a man in a need for a woman and how different we are and how sometimes that can be super frustrating, especially in the those quarters of marriage… Yes, but how needed it is, and we just allow them to be man, and we allow ourselves to be a woman in the race up of it. Absolutely, it turns out so much more beautiful, it’s so much more easy, you can carry each other’s burdens and you can also make up for each other’s weekly, and I definitely was the exact same way, I still a hard marketed, but I was very much like…

0:22:41 S2: I never feel her. I feel like you wear the pants and I do. Or the parent. Okay, we met the day. You probably say otherwise. I finally, when I came to the Lord was when, and I released it and I was like, You know what, I’ve always tried to have the rain, here is a solid that was almost a care of it. Yeah, I was in that time where I felt so much release of pressure that I had to be… All of these things, I was never called to be. I was never called to be in charge of the household, but that’s not my role, it’s a symbiotic thing that I donate, but I don’t want to do it a lot, I don’t have to make the decisions a lot, some true. I don’t have to rely fully on one perspective, which is one thing I was definitely doing, like it’s my way or the highway, and because I come from this bigger family or this or foundation, and my parents were great as well and taught me to be that independent woman being entrepreneur, go after your agree, not to his discredit, but so not to let mine go.

0:23:53 S2: Right, and so it’s been really amazing. I’m so glad that you share that and something that I hope our husbands have an opportunity so they have no choice that we Tootsie, it’s simple. They would be like, yes, they get it. I get you, I understand you. Especially with kiddos, so tell me about… Got the book right in Gateway to her with the title is… And they wanna say it on, Taiwanese, you’ve been doing the lives and I carry so much value to those that I accidentally pops your base. She’s not a big time, ’cause it feels like eliminate me what your heart behind that, what you start behind your ministry. What… Do you feel it too? Since I was a little grotius felt to write speak and the before Wilkerson was like, That’s gonna be me, I’m gonna be a repeat. I used to have shows, interview people say, and then… And so I’ve always wanted to do that. I just sound like 10 books to my parents with my friends, but I just always felt that. And then fast forward, going through college, getting ready to set my sights on the business work and all of that, just kind of pursue it, doing things, then I collided with Jesus and His grace and His love, and so I went into ministry, not all those dreams were gone.

0:25:34 S2: And then I just realized he just repackage them in a way, I was like, Okay, here’s the purpose and here’s why, and so I feel like I’m just starting to take some of those things back off the shelf and start doing that a little at a time. I remember when my first part… See, we lost our first pregnancy, I was… I’ve talked to pregnancy, and so he was very traumatic in that way, of our first pregnancy, never ever thinking like we would have any complications or whatever, I think someone who can have sometimes what I used to call it, rational, rational earshot. Now, I know that they’re not necessarily rational, ’cause I know people have walked through really tough things, but I always have this fear of things… That was never one of them. Yeah, so when that happened, anyways, I just remember just going through that time of healing and all of that, and my cousin called me and she’s been a big part of my jury, even her… I told her, she said, I think you need a blog, and I felt like Logan was like, just put on a one, is she… I was like, Okay, so eight and a half years ago, I just started about…

0:26:45 S2: And it was just me and my mom and my best friend in my… And so then that kind of just grew over time, and I just felt like I just need to show up into that, and then eight year somewhere, she speaks last year, so two years ago, I just felt I was time for that next step, and so I put together, more like on the website? Yeah, okay. And now we do this. And then it was just like every step, I just took one in front of the other, that kind of led even to this man, this space now. And so with my idea for the Wednesday really is a… I guess it’s a hesitation to start a… Okay, know what I can do. And I think to where we are now, people do things at such a quality so fast that I kind of love that moments to make me be like, Well, I don’t have any of that, and so I just really toss that out of my mind and you’re on a like, I’m just gonna do what I can and then just believe that little bit that… And so that’s really my idea with Wednesdays, I don’t have you…

0:27:54 S2: Notes don’t have anything in a idea about me, so that it’s really just for maybe people to hear my voice, if they have never heard my voice, but they say, You know what, maybe when she has a podcast, maybe listen to me, I can trust her or to speak to me and just have time to just connect to people because I know that social media can be such a vulnerable place for people, we… A lot of times we talk about mindless scrolling, but I know that as mindless is a crucial… We really are taking things out from us, and it’s more of like, it’s done a lot to us, or pay with our emotions with all of that, and so I just really wanna be someone that’s just kind of not adding to the noise, but just a place where they can be like, Hey, I can get some encouragement, I can be reminded that I radome thoughts. And it’s been really cool because a lot of the people that have connected in that way or not people that earn the church, and so stuff like that, and so it’s just been a really cool opportunity for people to hear a little bit more about the way and and what I love that I think it’s so important because there are so many mediums one and there’s like there’s so much information we overload all the time or to even people sharing.

0:29:13 S2: And so I think the biggest thing for me when I have the opportunity, again, it’s… I do it for… At the end of the day, for myself, it’s like freedom of expression, but I’m always… There’s always that one person that receives it and you’re like, Oh, that’s a form… Good, I don’t need anything else. So the power of… And this is for people on the other end, the power of letting us know that you listed that you are sending a DM to say, Hey, this touched me in that way, it’s not falling on deaf ears for us… I know and I can speak for you on this behalf in the world… Absolutely, and it’s not necessarily that you’re affirming us, we need your validation. Right, it’s that it’s a relationship opportunity is to connect further in a place that is venerable, I don’t show up with the anticipation of Poodle me put on my face really quick as we show you something like… I don’t know what’s gonna come out of my mouth. On my part, I’ve tried it last, I shared. And sometimes I’m like, Oh, I shouldn’t have said that, right? And the world and…

0:30:17 S2: And I think that that’s a safety zone for writing a book, for me initially, I was like, Okay, I get to script what people are reading, and when I came to the conference last year, I didn’t have an intention of a podcast… I had no intention of creating retreats, all of that has emerged in the last year, which is again, to see abadan dot in such a short time with your heart with your call, with your desire, with your purpose. He is so big. So big. It’s so much bigger than we can imagine. And I love the way you describe like what you did but you were little and how you’re pulling it back off of the show, because I remember… And I can relate in the achievement center. Yeah. Oh, I’m with Jesus now, right? I just need to be with Him and He sort… Yes, yes, but there’s so much purpose and all of the attention for ’cause we’re learning and now I’m learning with the different intent. Absolutely, I am very passionate about is speaking, I’m still very passionate about being on a Mikoyan about writing, but it has such a different heart level…

0:31:26 S2: Absolute. It’s not about me. Right, right. Yeah.

0:31:32 S1: Okay, wait. Hello. Before the episode continues, can you do like drop before the one-liner? I don’t know if that’s a thing, but I… Can you tell you about my girl Morgan with heart designs? Part of my passion is helping to illuminate the gifts within others in this room, you… She’s a super star when it comes to all saying Digital Marketing from IPF Braves to my website, to logos or even event, pupae might go to girl, and she can be yours to go check her out now at www hardens dot org. I mean, really, this podcast wouldn’t even work if I didn’t have her… Don’t waste another minute. She’ll be the mic drop to your dream. I know from experience, and it’s so cool, ’cause when I talk to my mom and stuff, the way she just kind of chuckles and I’m just like, otitis, self-discovery that I had finally realized what she’s already known

0:32:29 S2: About it, if I… You know, tiniest about that with God. So many people are trying to find out who they are is really it’s in the… Who they are in tan and God knows who we are. And so I just love that ’cause she behave papers and all the words used to speak at one and a half years old, he knows that as I’m just like, It’s so cool. Some of those things has been there and just so thankful that of my relationship with Jesus and the purpose that He’s knit makes all of it, like you said, just not about what I’m bringing on, what I’m doing, but this is my offering me gifts to come over yeah, absolutely. It’s very different than Old Testament get to giving it and you’re not coming with a laminar tyrants, not necessarily that. That’s a guy’s asking To what freedom we have and being able to come with something that He’s already given us and he’s like, Just pulled out of your back cost and let’s do this together, like he wants to be in union with us, and the things that we were at and not in a disruptive way, because I think sometimes people feel like, Oh, like, I like to do art, but how am I gonna use that for passant? That everything you do honor, and if you have a mentality, absolute of everything I do, honor…

0:33:51 S2: Absolutely, right. And you’re changing diapers that’s ornately was gonna be brushing your Toastmasters a point to it, and you’re taking care of your child, you’re doing the next legacy of your life a time, taking care of my body, which is a vessel, so it… You’re really mindset. It really is about the… To so many people right now, I think… And I don’t know, it’s probably been since the beginning of time, but I just think it’s 2019 that things happen like this that feel like there’s this highlight on what is significant and what is not in the search for that significant thing, we’re overlooking all the days all the moments… And I think that, like you said, it’s a perspective when you know Jesus inside of me, and so when I make it out to Sandy, when I am loving on my baby, so when I’m writing, that is still me on me, and I’m doing that to honor God and you get to be all of the guests, and I think that that’s also like a pain point for people. They’re like, Wait, this is my job. I say, This is who I am. No, no, this is my job, I have to do this, that this is who I am.

0:35:05 S2: And after work, when I do my passion for suits, like now you’re… All of you. All the time. Yeah, so honor yourself, absolutely. Just as much as you’re honoring God with that time, with that energy, with your finances, all of those things, and I know we’ve spoken about finances in the past, and that is so important and in such a place of buying… This is honor at God or not buying. This is on here. Yeah, so I… Yeah, and it’s really interesting ’cause I would never… When I was a quote, I say little Christian versus a big secret. And what that means and what the Desmond be that I practice Christianity. I was not in a relationship with me more. Yeah, I believed in that. There’s two different things like Jesus is my hand, power that sorta a big… And it’s not just a joke for people at like, I can communicate with God and it sounds… But it is, if you’re tuning in and you’re not Christian, right, you promise I’m not like the shares and he speaks and he intended purpose, and He is life in such a way that we have access to…

0:36:20 S2: But I know how I heard myself speak as a 17-year-old, I would be like, Oh, she’s looking… We need to here, we need to go another way. And we see Eliot the same time, there probably would have been that intrigue, maybe she has something right, as there’s some sort of thing that I could work on from now, and usually it doesn’t happen until you’re more self-aware or looking… Searching, and I don’t feel like when I was 17, not so should have been searching or I was searching for… I countered now, because it doesn’t… None of that matters. I realize that it’s all about interior, and that’s why when we’ve had those conversations, women, she speaks and going straight to art, you’re literally telling your story, to note, I love your highlights, which is a great casserole and super basis. So much more than that. And people are missing it. They’re missing it. Missing it, meaning they’re yearning for it, not missing the boat, that might be the thing, but even people… And check out line, you tell them things so sweet and they’re like, Yes, nobody’s effort to… Told me about it. Are you kidding hereafter? They describe, yes, people are just there, and that is another perspective of God, multiply re not stealing, not my ideal reader to ideal audience, if you will, in the talk you’re not stealing them, you are multiplying not only their heart and their reach…

0:38:02 S2: You’re making a bet. I’ve seen that go. Absolutely, and I think there’s so many different messages that I think about that We dishonor would it be then going back to that of bringing our gifts to owner Pat and using your to honor God and to tell me more person that is good. News is good, and I think that’s been… The thing for me is kind of getting out of that space of like, This is not about anything else than that in simplifies all that. And it’s interesting, ’cause I know that you’ve done multiple different speaking engagements… Right. My really good friend who’s also a pastor, she and her husband who have come along side, a submarine who was from India, who dad has a big charmer metrics there, and he’s coming here for family reasons that they’re gonna have this opportunity to go to India and a place that… People don’t even have access to the team. They have never seen the Bible, they’ve never heard the word Jesus spoke in. And this isn’t just one person, so it’s like billions, millions still, so we’re all population about millions of people, and in remote areas that have never even…

0:39:24 S2: Everyone was raised, so to imagine that there… It’s not just United States, and people do think in just such small communities, all for to local community, that’s a hard support local… I do it all day long, but the world is so much big Minoan, if we could just understand that it’s not about writing a book that goes to India, about taking your message to the Y in a way, maybe eventually they will have podcasts and then the initiative that you’re eating is to do a podcast here is the year, someone across the stations, it’s about providing for you as about providing free opportunities to know, to treat it both sides of not thinking you’re so significant yet no, I think you are so insignificant. So the same thing with, I’m so significant that these people are taking stuff for me, like, This is my way, this is my thing. No, at the same time, what is my thing gonna do… Well, imagine if we all just say, Hey, this is my thing, together with the impact that makes, and so I’ve just learned to not think so highly of others in order to think highly of me, Neanderthal, it’s like, no, Here’s my…

0:40:51 S2: Here’s my gift that I wanna just be faithful is what you give me, and if this is my… This is my voice, and I think that my kids are just a great reminder that I… Anytime I do feel insignificant, I’m like, Well, I get to do their mom, and I think they have some purpose and the things that they’re gonna do, they’re already doing in their little lives that I’m like, Okay, I don’t know. It’s just a reminder for me that. That’s good. What I do matters, so does… So tell me, you’ve got the church… When you do Orangetheory, do you coach it? Is there… Okay. Yeah. And how long have you been doing that? So I just finished, not finish, it came across in one year a… Yeah, how interest started. Yeah, I started in short end of June, and her son, yeates of… I really love doing that. I feel like it’s the same thing. I like encouraging people beyond their limitations and they feel the limitations, bring them out of their comfort zone, I encouraging them to… They’ve got it. Yeah, it’s interesting ’cause my everything for it and face as birth out of a conversation with my personal trainer and nutrition coach, and she has since left the facility and has been trading off of their family to do other things, but we did not have a male trainer that even it is the first time in my life I’ve had a male trainer other than male coaches when I was a gymnast, and we hadn’t had any to sasr in there other than if our husbands come on, and that…

0:42:31 S2: Amusements am my spiritual experience, and that place has been a fear because I’m in my own zone, I’m not with my kids, I’m not… It’s just for me. And he has come in and with these shares, and I can’t wait to have on the podcast too, would be shares even opening or closing while we’re stretching. He’s in, and I’m like, Oh, right, you get a pass or a Renata King about it, when you share what you’re saying has so much debt, and to know if these people aren’t such a vulnerable state… Yes, they’re coming in either hungry as they are hungry for the back that men or on a diet or something interesting in a Math perspective, or they’re coming in because they’re in pursuit of this whole vessel, a spiritual experience, there’s so many mindsets to ingest, so much brokenness, and also so much wholeness. Yeah, so you have this incredible opportunity to Salina window. You cannot get it. It’s so true. Cannot get it so true, what people… They welcome you end just in a way, if they trust you, and so I can take that lightly in that opportunity, but I really… I mean, my journey, I’ve always been an athlete.

0:43:55 S2: Different things growing up, all of that, and then you have children and other… All the things that I really believe, a lot of the momentum that I’ve found in my life and that got me here all started when I really took that approach of not just like, now that my mom, I just gotta do sweet, but how can I be strong? The mental toughness that has come from what I do in there has been a game changer for me to withstand and to continue to fight, to go fight and not give up, because I know if I can push, I continue to push myself physically in that way, my spiritual body is doing the same thing. So… And to learn that withstanding, I was in the end last week, and it was crazy, it was in storming, it was storming it, and I have Ergenekon, the Outer Banks, and it was just like just wild waves, and I was just worshipping next to the water and I had just done my Birdy challenge that I’m doing that. I just literally felt called into the ocean, it was red flag day, and nobody else is in the ocean, there’s people walking, but it was kind of standing at dusk, right.

0:45:03 S2: And I was the crazy person out there working out, but I had to get into the water, and I have been back in the rendition as a species, and I was a lifeguard to the ocean and my… Everything, I are connected. And it was big, and I was like, I know I’m strong enough to withstand this. I’ve done it since I was young. I teach me something that in the ways and he’s tossing and turning and I’m getting so, I’m crying in the Mister, which is an interesting experience in itself. And I just felt God say like, I got you. And to know that even in the toss turning to, that’s like I feel that way in different areas of my life, but I am so grounded in his safety strand, so that is such an element of that when I share buy-in, body and soul balance and alignment and connectivity, and it’s not one or the other, I want and feature. And I know that that is the same. I listen to see like we’ve never worked out together, but I imagine it soon, it’s not just… We know, we get each other in that sense, that this is not just for my body, right, because I’ve done things just for my body, and I have suffered because whether it is a diet, whether it is a self-image pursuit, whether it’s trying to get into a certain size or a certain way or a certain calorie count…

0:46:29 S2: It’s exhausting. Yes, it is, and I hope that people hearing on the other end of the might understand that isn’t going to make you feel… Well, no, it’s not gonna make you feel healthy or none of that is the person we’re actually looking for, they’re so much more than a… It’s the whole whole picture, but I feel like it all goes together on things, a great mirrors that you have with a… But the fitness aspect in faith really… To believe it goes hand-in hand to do. Yeah, it is. And one of the things that I’ll bring it full circle in the image that I had on the book cover was a picture of my back, I had my hands up in my hair, and it was my friend and my back… Or good at the IIT, deterred the person looking at it because they weren’t in the same placement of her body health, and so it immediately turned them away being like, I’ll never look like that. My body will never look like a Wynonna pick up this book I ever want to pursue looking like it, and so it really checked me ’cause I’m like, Oh, interesting.

0:47:39 S2: And I get that. Not everyone’s Freestone baseline. I’ve said it, I understand that, but there is still that element of, you can be more than you think you can… Absolutely, I follow this girl, Ashley. Well, at the tiger shall be so excited, she has always been a size 14 since high school, she is a currently a site for, and that happened in less than a year, and it is possible, ’cause she’s also on a spiritual journey, she’s also on a mental candour, Ney of, I wanna be fully well newly and just how… Below can you do that? People do it all the time, it’s just the gristmill strength that you come along that I can lift this far better, I can run this… Right, exactly. That’s so true. And I feel like for me, it was that like, I’m not doing something in 90 days, I’m not doing something like this is for the long haul, and I’m going to… And I always kind of like juggling. My friends were like, You need to do this. Plans with me, I’m like, No. Just… No, no, I’m still moving forward just because I’m doing things that I can do with my family that does honor God.

0:48:51 S2: And I didn’t go in to that space exactly. I wanna show up for myself and we show up for my family and have energy, a house, excitement. I have more of a like, Let’s go after that. Who says we can’t do that? Taoyuan, take that with you. And I do wanna feel like… One of the things that Orangetheory says It’s your life, that’s their motto is more of like who… And so they used to keep learning and things like that, and they moved into more life, and I just love that because it has no… I’m pulling weeds in my backyard, and I’m lifting stuff and just taking the right, I’m not tired and sweating and I’m enjoying it, it’s added value to some of the things, and I really do believe it’s helped me show up, show for Jesus, and it’s also really challenged me, I’ll set my alarm to go work out, I endian challenge to set my alarm to spend time with Jesus, ’cause I need such a priority of my exercise, ’cause I know what it’s done more life, right. That I have just in the net last season time where I ever…

0:50:02 S2: Now it’s just like, there are things no matter what the day is gonna be like, instead of… My question used to be, when am I going to work out? That was my question, ’cause then I can… To the other side of it, really, ’cause I said Things you, Tessa balance or whatever, that word that… In that it’s like, Okay, that should not be a number one. A thing is in a mind having time to hash, that’s where I can have been sitting and then I’m like, Alright, I have my coffee, I… Jesus oceanian, ’cause we were actually talking on the way here, the guy that I’m here with, and she was saying, we were talking about addiction specifically, and how our society is addicted to so many things, and I think physical fitness can be one of them, and if you’re going after for the wrong reasons, in the pursuit of something different, that’s not healthy, so there is that addiction component of, but there’s also I can pursue my health and it’s a good start, and it can become fanning thing, right. How do you become addicted to Jesus as ration the line like, Okay, and let that be a good thing, that’s not…

0:51:24 S2: I’m a crazy person, I… So the street stand with the signature situation, but how do I fit that in, how can I make… How can I break generational persons of understanding what addiction is and how it negatively affect and make it a positive… Because people had addictive is… It’s true, I think that’s the difference of what you were talking about earlier, Leavitt religion and relationship. Religion says, I have two relationships, I get to do this, I get to go and spend time with the community and that I am better, and I have just been super… And a lot of people think addiction or people are addicted or they’re crazy, it’s just because they have good habits and they are disciplines. Totally. And so discipline, I always kind of shape people wrong because you’re like, I’m like, No, I’m sorry, I’m not getting up what our Aotearoa, a different number. And it’s like, one do that, and I think those are the has to… That’s a good ad. Then moving it to the other side is when you start moving into condemnation, startling yourself down, you didn’t show up if you didn’t… Do you know what I mean? So for me, that has been the biggest thing because part of this, even more life and some things that going on, what goes on in molecular, the inside of you, when you work out, when you do certain things to me is showing to you bring it…

0:52:45 S2: Does most your move… So it does it. I wanna do that again. So you are addicted to that on the… Right, right. But I think that e always kinda keeping yourself centered in this, of like, I’m doing this because I’m always just re-evaluating your intentions, my intention is not to be a better Christian or hanging out or uses it, my intention is to spend time with God. My intention when I go work out is not to be hottest, momentary intention is, is that I’m gonna get stronger or taking care of my estimate of the temple, that the State just kind of re-evaluating its funny, ’cause I know you’re a little one to ever day my girls are eight and a live, okay, so positive for… And they know mommy and daddy are strong eyes, they compare, and I try not to play that game, so I… Exactly. They know and they’ll see me do exercises and they wanna do it right along at… And they’re like, my best is look at my abs that’s run on and then to install the next step yet, right. So not to have that concede component shows the confidence as you are season, but guess what else is strong, you have a strong mind, a strong part, and the reason we do this is for our heart and multiple levels, and teaching them about good food intake and bad on take and what that looks like is the same per mental…

0:54:24 S2: You watch it. What do you paint? What are you feeling yourself yet so… So true. It’s so multifaceted, and I think God intended for it to be that you could easily like Let It Be… Were mechanical creature all gonna be slender and Ryan have a… Right, and I think at one point when we were all touching me, gathering where

0:54:45 S1: In… But we stop that.

0:54:47 S2: It was a point of like, Now we’re gonna West and we’re gonna sit and do rote things like a bigger was out You Norman because you so or things together on your typing and yet that’s not what God intended. Not that we don’t need to type in a stricter, but there’s more to it. Absolutely, it’s an interesting thing to be aware. Absolutely, and if we just continue to be aware, then each of those puzzle pieces you become more intentional, Yehudi think too is just a great example that you’re showing their kids of taking care of yourself. And so I’m always reminded, okay, what are the things that they’re gonna say about me, they would know them, and I’m driving my shoes, she’s going to work out, they know the like, okay, you know that. And so I used to do a lot of my reading it either on my iPad or it might be a phone, and they didn’t understand the difference between me just paying it out of my phone or in the Bible, and so I know it sounds so SINAI exchanged that… And I’ve opened my Bible again because when they come in and they seem to do that, it is making deposits, and then I know that I just sound like…

0:56:01 S2: I just, I that time with the Lord that I just felt like I need to open up that so that when they come in… ’cause I don’t know, I’m sending an email, I don’t know, being the Bible, but it’s there, but it just looks like on that imamate see me turning those pages and so they’re seeing the highlight stuff or write in it, and so that’s… Wanting to do that, and so I’m seeing them grab for their Bible or in their journal or the songs to God, those kind of things, and so I just know that that’s… So does funny, my daughter, we don’t let them have a ton of screen time, but there’s obviously the time where I’m like, You’re gonna have to… Taoyuan sends, she’s been doing this a thing, she’s only four, but she’s obviously picked up on it ’cause we were on our phones and ibises, and so her brother came to me… I was like, How do we design the IPO? And I was like, Oh, maybe she shouldn’t be on… And I think she was looking at a picture and she was like, I… Primus working, I wasn’t doing anything and I was like, I’m sorry, Bayesian.

0:57:01 S2: She’s like, I was working, I was doing that homework, she didn’t use her teacher’s name in Samara on gonna do my homework. I was not playing on the phone, what kind of… How are you doing? And she was like, I was just looking at pictures, which is United, were in… So that means that I have been playing to that ’cause I’m not getting that other than maybe extra people doing stuff that I’m working, working moms a lot on her phone because she’s forges. Am I always working on him on Instagram as I just have to finish enantiomer FRUSTRATED WHEN THEY’RE intervening on the right, that shows them that my phone is more important they are… I told I was done there. Right now, it’s a one convictions good though. I really like that really convinces me from the Bible perspective, because there are are times that I actually am pursuing something that I know is healthy for them and ready for me and healthy for my relationship. And they do that. Thank you. So it’s the same thing with money, like there was a younger car, just use a more non… Yeah, this is not exactly…

0:58:11 S2: Require a, the Pocahontas a whole another year to make them understand, but it’s our job to steward that and it just steward it well. And I can’t say that I’m always doing the right thing by that. And I would say their Moroni feel the same with that. And I just gave them more right there in that and in just putting up some just healthy boundaries and fighting for that. Yeah, addiction is a real thing. It is for, it is. And I learned that the phone actually gives off similar to men insights that cocaine does, and so my little guy will stop in to the room and he’s like, I am was just in. You have in Seward to me, give me the… Once you have now that your teeth, you have a conversation this morning with Jeanette in that… ’cause we… Oneont took that I’ve done a lot lately, ’cause I’ll just go, but I just delete the app or me and I’ll go to Day two without them coming out on the phone, I put them back on for different things, and I just always feel like this isn’t controlling but I see, so you…

0:59:35 S2: Do you notice it seems like… And I’ll just do a random, but I don’t… I think about a damage I was delivery and I realized times I’ll just go back to my Peloton on the browser, I’m like, as I was really thanks a lot their race for us, ’cause he reminds to mission exactly the same content on anything to me, this and that you are not gonna wake up and the first thing you think about is your iPad screen to something… So no, I catatonia. Everyone listening in a

1:00:12 S1: Joy in time, since we are together all the time, you’ve gotta go spend more time together and

1:00:18 S2: Not a dinner with other friends that are in town, but it’s been a pleasant by that need to do the dot all. You just don’t have a cute my life, not to… Taoyuan, I’m absolutely rooting you on and I cannot wait to share what I do coming out into the world, but I know that it’s so much more than just a go, ’cause it might be seven books on that people actually reconfirm… Proud of you.
