Tonight marks the end of another First Place 4 Health session for my group. On the last night of each session we celebrate! The celebration is a time for everyone in the group to share from their heart. It is such a special and rewarding time. Can't wait for tonight!

        Just a few of the precious ladies in my group. Love them!

     Dancin' it up on our Spa Retreat last month

I can't say enough about this program. I hate to even call it a program because it's really not. It teaches a way of life that puts Jesus right in the middle, the beginning, the end and all throughout every aspect of life. It emphasizes encouragement, accountability and relationships. It teaches you how to keep going. I have tried many different diets, pills and programs but eventually I always ended up in the same place--hopeless, and heavier than ever before. I truly believe that I will never be in that place again.

Food is such a small part of what FP4H is all about and that's what I'm most thankful for. Food has had way too much power in my life for way too long. I feel like the way I am learning to live my life now is slowly but surely taking that control away from food and placing it where it was always meant to be--In Christ.

“O LORD, God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. In your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand you." 2 Chronicles 20:6

None can withstand the Lord, not even food. Victory in Jesus. Now that's something to celebrate!

This sounds like a good program/bible study/life choice.
You are a great inspiration and have made me wonder where I could possibly find the study/exercise/lifestyle choice guides you use.
