Don’t Let Go—

Posted in Prayer of blessing tagged , , , , , , , at 2:18 am by Broken & Brave

“I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness;

I will hold your hand.

I will keep you and will make you

to be a covenant for the people

And a light for the Gentiles.”

Isaiah 42:6

What has your heart perplexed this day? What has caused your heart to rouse and be troubled?

Do you not know you are the absolute Apple of the Father’s Eye?

Do you know how His heart cries when you suffer inside?

Do you not know that His fondest thoughts include you?

He is with you.

Everything you say—

Everywhere you go—

Every ounce of you is protected by whole hosts of angels descending down from the heavens to protect your call, your anointing, your crown.

Just the fact that you are alive today is living proof that there are yet Grand and Mighty things for you to do!

“…be there with an open and joyful heart as often as possible; if not joyful, at least with a brave and faithful heart.”

~Frances de Sales

Take Courage…

have heart…

Be strong in the Might of His Power…be it not your own.

For in our own strength we prove weak, feeble and foolish.

Be the man or woman you desire to be.

Step up and step out Victoriously.

Find encouragement for this day in these words that I say. They are Heaven inspired and drawn from wells of Living Water to flow from my pen–if only to cause both your heart, soul, strength and face to smile.

He is with you now-

let us go the extra mile.

Face Time My Heart

Posted in Inspirational tagged , , at 9:24 am by Broken & Brave

I think technology is great.

I grew up with the phone tethered to the wall. As a teen my Mom bought me a longer than long chord for the phone that would stretch all the way from the kitchen to my bedroom. It was a big day when I finally received as a gift my own phone for my room.

Computers, internet, cell phones, social media, etc. It creates a fast way to connect, learn, communicate. Really fast!

However, I am still a very old fashion girl. I prefer face to face communication. Active listening skills require feedback, observation of non verbal communication and listening. And there’s something special about just being together with others. It fosters a community like nothing else.

That’s how it is with God also.

We can see glimpses of him in music, the sunset, the glorious moonlight and stars showing off their magnificent light…

But it’s when we pour ourselves into Him, I mean more than a casual glance to stare just like we sometimes do with our phones. He doesn’t want us to skim…He wants us to press in and really try to get face to face with him with devoted time and attention–that is when He shows us his face, his heart and blesses us with his Presence.

You are loved.

You are valuable.

You are set apart to do great things.

He is with you and he is calling you by name.

Do not be afraid to reach back to him the same.

I think it is time for some FaceTime with Heaven.

This Is Going To Be Dope!

Posted in Inspirational, true story tagged , , , , , , , , at 6:03 am by Broken & Brave

Why Can’t I Get Motivated?

This may be a question you’re asking yourself right now?

You have dreams, things you want to do, experiences rich inside the heart and mind, but something comes up lacking when it’s actually time to take the required action steps to move upon your goals. Why?

You maybe be experiencing a vicious cycle of deleterious effects because of a “start-stop syndrome”. You’ve got the best intentions, you may even begin that daunting task, that exercise program or clean eating menu—but something inside just isn’t clicking and the motivation is mentally mustered up for a brief season, but then somehow fades away.

If what I am suggesting describes you, there may be a nutritional root to what you are facing. Instead of beating yourself up, let’s take a closer look inside.

Our bodies are amazing. I am forever fascinated by their beauty, capability and complexity. We are like a walking talking scientific experiment that knows what to do and how to do it every day. But sometimes little hiccups in the body cause things to bump out of alignment and our homeostasis is disrupted. One of the key roles of nutrition— providing energy, is to function to feed cells and maintain stasis. Stasis is merely balance.

Too extreme of anything isn’t good for us. So let’s take a small moment to talk about an important chemical used by the brain called dopamine.

“The brain includes several distinct dopamine pathways, one of which plays a major role in the motivational component of reward-motivated behavior. The anticipation of most types of rewards increases the level of dopamine in the brain”

So if we believe there will be a reward for our efforts or we are excited by the reward we will become motivated to do the work or take the actions required. We get energized–literally!

In Psychology we can study about the research done called “Classical Conditioning”. This study used dogs and salivation. A dog was stimulated and conditioned for a desired response using positive reinforcement. For the dog the reward was food.

https://www.simplypsychology.org/pavlov.html

We operate the same way. When something positive happens or the anticipation and expectation of something happening occurs we release dopamine in the brain and this neurotransmitter releases and stimulates the pleasure center of the mind. Certain foods are shown to stimulate our bodies ability to produce dopamine. So basically—when we are adequately motivated toward a goal and the belief deepens that we will be rewarded or blessed for our efforts—we excel. Dopamine can help us do that!

Your dreams and aspirations may only be one thought away. Set your mind right. Activate within your heart, mind and soul all the capacity Heaven loaded deep within. You’ve got what it takes to succeed and as you begin you just may find the momentum like wind in your sails taking you higher than you’ve ever been.

Sometimes to achieve we merely need to believe in ourself. We need others wrapped around us who deeply believe in us as well.

We need encouragement—but we also need excitement.

God gave a pleasure center in our mind for a purpose. Let’s put it to good use!

You’re only one breathe away from an exciting day! You may be only one dopamine infused thought away from break through!

Let’s get fit and go for it!

~Nicole

Nutrition Tips

I’ve found a great little article that includes suggestions for health rich foods that may naturally increase dopamine production in your mind.

Love Stinks

Posted in true story tagged , , , , at 8:05 am by Broken & Brave

Awwww….Valentine’s Day.

This post is for all of you V-Day Lovers. I’m not anti-Valentines Day. I just prefer spontaneous acts of love rather than canned Hallmark Holidays. It’s not that I’m not romantic. In fact–I am a romantic of the purest kind. That’s probably why I am not impressed by Valentine’s Day. It doesn’t move me. But for all of you who do…

this one is for you…

When I was young and single this guy, MUCH OLDER guy was VERY interested in me (I like to tease him). We were friends, but that is all. He really wanted to impress me so he made me dinner.

He cooked….

He knew I wasn’t much of a carnivore (at the time-I like meat now), not because I was vegetarian or vegan, I just had “texture issues”.

So, he made me a nice dish of broccoli and pasta primavera. The only problem was he had never made it before and the recipe called for two cloves of fresh pressed garlic. John had never used garlic before…ever.

So he got the garlic and was pressing and pressing and pressing. Fresh garlic.

I like fresh pressed garlic.

However, as I sat to enjoy the meal this gent had so tediously prepared I noticed the strength and the power of pungent garlic. I worked through the bowl, but it was tough, so much garlic. As I neared the end I noticed piles of garlic at the bottom and garlic skins galore.

I knew how much effort he had put forth. I did not want to hurt his feelings. So I gently inquired…

“How much garlic did this recipe call for?” He began to explain, “Two”.

I replied, “Two cloves?”

He said, “yes”

-then proceeded to confess he wasn’t sure what a clove of garlic was and it seemed like a lot so he only used one.

If you have ever cooked with garlic you have figured out he used an entire HEAD of garlic not a clove. And the skins…pressed right in. The poor guy didn’t know how to peel it either.

It’s a sweet story that has been shared and shared and has even helped several young college students remember the difference between a head and a glove of garlic when cooking.

I REEKED of garlic for days.

Garlic is excellent for the immune system and so has medicinal healing properties…

So there you have it.

Love heals.😂

Almost 25 years and 5 children later…

Happy Valentine’s Day💗

Thread of Life

Posted in true story tagged , , at 8:12 am by Broken & Brave

I knew you when I knit you in your mother’s womb…

Human existence is fascinating.

Human physiology and biology are amazing.

I’m currently teaching my middle school son about cell metabolism. There is so much about about our cells and how they create and use energy and how they replicate themselves. All this science—I don’t understand—I’m a rocket man. Just kidding! I couldn’t resist. I love Elton John music. But truly, the science at the microscopic level is so, well, microscopic and so unique. Though it must be studied with a microscope to see it—it is there. It is real and it is working on your behalf to sustain and build your life every single day. Your very DNA remembers every detail about your appearance and replicate cells daily to sustain your special look.

When I was in school, like high school or college, I remember studying the stages of meiosis (cell replication). I found it interesting, so I remembered it. One thing I noticed, even back then, was that the distinct stages and appearance of meiosis look like spindles. I believe that is even how my high school biology teacher even described it.

I think of this scripture God used to give us clues before any microscope was ever created…

For you created my inmost being;

you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

your works are wonderful,

I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you

when I was made in the secret place,

when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed body;

all the days ordained for me were written in your book

before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts, God!”

Psalm 139:13-17

The Lord loves you.

The Creator of all Humanity is in love with you.

He knows you.

He knows everything about you.

He knew the path of your every step and was there guiding your direction through every obstacle, pitfall, setback and wrong path-Gently loving and guiding you to His Path.

He is more concerned with doing what it takes to keep loving you than He is concerned about any mistakes that have been made by you.

He has entered a covenant blessing with you.

What does that mean, exactly?

It means He has attached his devotion to you like a marriage designed to stand the rest of time.

He will never leave you or forsake you and when he looks at you—

I think he feels rather fond of his knitting skills.

Life♥️

It is a magnificent gift.

Enjoy it.

All of it—

Even on the hard days,

The Son is always shining.

You are covered.

**I am attaching the most beautiful post about the stages of conception and development. Though we begin as a glorious meeting of sperm and egg, it looks a peculiar at first, but what rapidly unfolds is something beautiful. Life can be the same way. Stick it out and stay the course. God isn’t finished yet. Believe for your best!

Lamp Post of Hope

Posted in Inspirational tagged , , , , , , , , at 7:33 am by Broken & Brave

God always equips us for how He calls us–

In the process of the equipping we endure a season constructed by heaven to retreat into the Savior’s Arms. Often times it requires a Night or a dark season of soul to relinquish our will for His.

Think back in your life to a time when it felt dark as night. You had a trouble or problem that was so much bigger than you and you didn’t know what to do. Maybe there wasn’t much you could do—just endure and perhaps you even prayed. Does something come immediately to your mind?

The greater your call the greater the trials and tests of preparation- so you may have some severe Night seasons or maybe they are present in your mind or life to the nth degree right now?

In these times you must be still and wait. You must rest. You must demonstrate the same demeanor as Mary. Mary is a woman spoken of in the New Testament of the Bible. She had a sister named Martha and Jesus came to pay them a visit. (Luke 10)

Martha toiled to make everything just right. Just how’d she like it to be for Him. Sounds like a good idea, right?

Mary, on the other hand, just sat at his feet—admiring, listening, drinking in His Presence. As far as the “work” goes, she didn’t do a thing.

There is Martha…

There is Mary…

Be Mary.

When we devote time to rush our heart into His, lingering about His Lap, we experience the Divine of Heaven. Here are a few things that happen when we do just that:

🔺He brings revelation and Light, Guidance and Direction to the dark days.

🔺He expels the Night and shines ever Bright. And when He illuminates Himself within you, He illuminates everything around you as well. Exactly like a Lamp Post of Hope. Then you become Breath taking and able to not only cast vision in your own soul, but countless souls who should Journey the Path you lead.

🔺You become well trained to see in the dark.

🔺You learn to become more dependent on your spiritual eyes than your natural. And if you are highly trained and yielded you will gain greater sight with the eyes of your spirit than the eyes of your flesh.

🔺Discernment will become one of your greatest assets.

God always equips us for how He calls us–

You are equipped.

You are called.

You are Chosen.

You have been selected.

You are an impenetrable fortress of Splendor.

You are Shielded…

And you are Strong.

There is a specific place you belong and those called along side of you are glad you came. Your company welcomed. Your company appreciated. Your face…it is admired and could never be replaced.

God bless you this day. You occupy Golden Space. Be electrified with His Power and Grace.

The best of you is still at rest in you. God’s best for you is still to come for you. Do you believe it?

Then practice the art of being still and drinking from wells of Living Water. He will whisper Goodness down deep in your soul. I guarantee it will leave you thirsty for more.

Arise!

~Nicole🌹

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,

and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.”

Just Be

Posted in Inspirational, true story tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:24 am by Broken & Brave

Never chase a goal so hard you forget to have fun with it.♥️

I’ve been going through some old photos—compiling them from all the various shows I’ve done over the years. I have a specific purpose for this complication for myself and my training. It’s interesting and useful to see how I’ve changed my physique over the years. Change happens small and over time. Pictures help with perspective.

As I go through them, I am reminded there’s been quite a few and I’ve now been doing this more than just a year or two.

Guess what? Looking back I think, “hey, I was more prepared than I thought I was.” But maybe I was placing too much priority on what the judges thought? I’ve been blessed with open doors for a quality education in the fields of human developmental and nutrition. I’ve planned, prepped and been focused and dedicated. I have the gift of discipline. And I found the nutritional edge my biochemistry needed to shred down lean.

I highly recommend AdvoCare if you are looking for a rock solid supplement that has safety and efficacy. I’m including a picture of me on the left, 6 weeks after birthing my fourth child. Contrast that to picture on the right, on stage in my second season. I believe my FIFTH child was two years old when the picture on the right was taken. I don’t have the exact dates of the photos so you have to take my word and visit the website:

NextLevelcoach.com

Aside from all of this—you never feel ready, at least I don’t. You can feel you put in the work and the time, but not ready. I feel this way with every show. So as I look at these pictures I am once again reminded of all the memories that have been made. All the friendship and community that has been built.

How about you?

Have you ever had something you worked hard at and sometimes you forget that you do your part and trust God to bless your efforts?

I think back to when I was in school. I never felt ready in college. Always did the work, but was it enough? Never felt prepared enough. But I graduated and I guarantee I remembered to have fun!

How about parenting?

If you’re a parent for sure you’ve had times you got so caught up in the job of parenting that you forgot to just cut loose and have fun with them?

I’ve always found humor in the parent who was desperate to potty train their child by the age of two. I just smile, good for you (knowing that most likely they know when to run the kid to the bathroom. Most one year olds don’t have enough muscle and mind to muscle control for that—but some do).

But to the mom who feels less than prepared because her four year old still soils their pants I always share—“they’ll be fine. They aren’t going to graduate high school in a diaper.”

Puts it in perspective, right?

I love to laugh with my kids. They crack me up. But I’ve had a lot of them so each kid progressively benefited from the more laid back me. The oldest always gets to be the pioneer for younger siblings. Isn’t that true! I know my oldest agrees with this (I’m an oldest sibling, too)!

I’ve got some homework for you this week.

📌Spend some time enjoying yourself.

📌Indulge in some simple pleasure.

📌Smile often.

📌 Be friendly.

📌Show others kindness.

There’s so much more to life than work and purpose and direction and intention.

Just Be.

You plus God is greater still.

When you simply do what needs to be done, you can trust in a God who says, “it’s enough”. Forget the judges—you’ve got the win. And as for your kids, they’re going to turn out just fine. Keep loving and leading and every little voice that says it’s not enough, you’re not enough or things are pretty rough—ignore it!

These are just a few examples. You already know what it is that presses you, and maybe you need to just enjoy it a bit more because you’ve been thinking of it the entire time you’ve been reading this. So, you know what to do…

Enjoy♥️

Back Forty For Glory

Posted in Devotional, Inspirational tagged , , , , , , , , , at 7:55 am by Broken & Brave

Noah was on the back forty talking to God…

What is the back forty?

back forty noun

Definition of back forty

: a remote and uncultivated or undeveloped piece of land of indefinite size (as on a farm)

Because of the nature of Noah’s Intimacy with Heaven he was immune to the commentary of his peers. It may be true he didn’t like it, but it didn’t waiver or move him to unmove what God had asked him to move. So he moved…the comfort zone of every human on the planet. Figuratively and then literally! And all of Heaven and earth moved with him.

What if…

What if Noah only obeyed God once he understood the request?

What if Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego decided to bow before the idol to spare themselves, but vowed to not do so in their heart?

What if Elijah stayed in a cave instead of going to Jezebel?

What if Mary said no to the Angel of the Lord? What if Jesus got down off of His Cross and said, “that’s all for me. This is too hard and it doesn’t make sense.”

What if…

God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is a God who delights in Displaying His power and Creative Miracles. The Who’s Who of Heaven looks down on you and wants to display His power in and through your life. He still has power to roll a stone, break every mold and He still asks us to live by Faith. If we can figure all of His Precepts out and calculate His ways…well, He wouldn’t really be a God worth Worshipping.

Trust Him with your life even when His lead is full of Mystery. His Timing, His Path and your Victory will always Shine through and He will get the glory.

You can trust Him!

So get out your plow, get to that secret place of harmony with heaven—you’re own personal back forty. Block out the noise, dig deep and do like Noah did.

He won’t give you a task you aren’t capable to grab and make into a masterpiece for His Glory. You’ve got just the right size hands for the job. So build it…they will come, just like Noah.

~Nicole 🌈

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways,”

You’ve been graced to run this race–the Victory is yours to take! With it come spoils and a prize! Rise!!!♥️🌹

Bountiful 🎉

The Touch of your hand makes me glow.
The Touch of your hand makes me whole.

You, alone, satisfy the soul.

You are not a far off or dusty wasteland.
You drench me is Goodness.
You quiet my soul.
I am never left forlorn when I know your will and way is to walk beside me, O, Ancient of Days.

You satisfy me.

You curb my appetite for lesser things.

What a Joy and delight to know that as this New Year rings you are there to carry me across the threshold from the old to the new…just as a Groom who carries his Bride.
You are always by my side.

This alone helps me to know that I am completely blessed.
My heart and soul are at rest for the bounty of treasure your heart contains for me.

I can feel how much you adore me.

….I am so blessed.♥️

The Grace to be Great

Posted in Inspirational, true story tagged , , , , , , , at 8:27 pm by Broken & Brave

We live in such a superficial society.

Appearance is everything and vanity is it’s chief council.

There are countless strategies available to make us look and feel great. Everything from head to toe–you’re covered if you’re willing to spend the time, money and energy to consume what society is selling.

Sustenance is an interesting thing.

I have noticed over many years of my recent life that the more affluent circles of our nations population base are overall more physically fit with healthy weight management. There are exceptions to this, of course, but overall this population of people looks pretty darn good. Most likely this is because they can afford it. Healthy foods cost more than packaged and processed foods. Gym memberships and personal trainers or high end, small, semi-private group training/classes are the trend. The higher end society is looking for something customized to the detail and complete and they are willing to pay money for it.

I think the more affluent community understands that–like it or not–your appearance is your business card.

It can take over eighty encounters with a person to change a negative first impression according to a recent study done at Harvard. So how you look, how you present yourself and how you treat/handle others plays a large roll in how successful you will be at pretty much everything.

As a trainer I’ve primarily worked with the more affluent community. I used to do personal training programs with a few “buddy packages” (you and a friend kind of thing), but now I’m almost exclusive small, private group training. I still carry a small stable of one on one clients, most of whom have their own private gyms located in their homes, but I have found myself more and more lately turning those opportunities down. Primarily because I just don’t have time. My family is a priority and my plate is full. So I now focus on small groups of committed individuals who are teachable, coachable and willing to work.

I am a health advocate.

An advocate is an ardent defender of people and purpose. It is the purpose God placed inside me to use health and fitness as my ministry.

I’m focused not only on improving strength, flexibility, overall health and vitality, but I’m all about equipping others for victorious living.

I’m all about disease prevention and holistic natural applications of sustenance, rest and movement all packaged in each individual unit.

•I’m about casting vision for the woman who wants to hang with her kids at Disney well in her elder years without needing to sit down a lot or rent a wheel chair just to enjoy the family fun.

•I’m about not being on a myriad of prescribed meds that has people so frightened to even take a multivitamin because it might interfere with their drugs.

• I’m definitely about empowering females to believe in themselves and create a deeper awareness of how wonderful their form is and what strength they possess (physically, spiritual, mentally) and how to harness it.

I recently had someone who I’d been helping along their health journey tell me they had decided to go in a different direction. I had functioned as an unsolicited unpaid source of council and help. They came to me asking for mentoring so I helped at my own sacrifice. It’s difficult for me to say no to someone who is ready to change.

They had sort of eluded to their shift in direction, but I actually found out about it another way and so I specifically asked them about it.

I tried to be as positive as I could be. I wanted to thoroughly communicate love, grace and humility wrapped up in a compassionate spirit. It was challenging for me to listen quietly because I knew as they were sharing the less than stellar decision they were making. I agreed to pray for them and encouraged them and left the situation positively so they knew I loved them and the door was wide open should they return again.

Relationships of a mentoring nature can be difficult. There is the temptation to personalize and take ownership of the results, successes or failures of other people. But it is not our personal responsibility to fix the world. I cannot fix my friends deleterious habits or choices. I can guide, love, protect and direct–but ultimately it’s their life and they are free to make whatever choices they desire.

As the mentor we understand that at the end of the day we leave everyone and everything at the base of the Cross. We did our part and that is all we can do. Then you just pray that the time and energy and sacrifice you put into them will stick and something good will flourish from it.

It could be easy to rehash all the sacrifice and time you’ve invested. The temptation is to feel a sense of disloyalty or lack of gratitude. But that’s not necessarily true, so don’t swallow that bait.

These practical truths I’m sharing with you apply to all of life.

We are all leading someone, somewhere by our conduct, life and example. We are living breathing sustenance to someone else’s soul.

I am fortunate in all my career I’ve only ever encountered one person who I detected may have an eating disorder. In this case, it was anorexia/bolemia. I know the clues to look for, but that was years ago (totally different story from the one I just described). But when I look around society I see many, many in every age group, race and economic category who suffer from a sort of spiritual eating disorder. A Spiritual Anorexia. They are starving to death because they don’t eat the right things. I’m not talking about food, I’m talking about thought patterns, focuses and methods to comfort their own pain. Soul Sustenance. I see people also who see the Truth, whether it is about themselves, God or others, but they refuse to eat it.

Anorexia is ultimately a spirit. It goes after the mind and influences the decisions of the individual causing them to believe skipping meals is somehow the answer to their problems or the solution for controlling their world. Spiritual Anorexia functions the same way. Distorted truth and a reflection of self, others and the world around is skewed. I imagine there are many people who suffer from both, spiritual anorexia and the physical manifestation of the disease. After all, if it is a spirit, it’s going to do as much damage to the whole of a person as it can once its invited inside. Satan’s objective is to steal, kill and destroy.

We are all mentoring others each and every day. What you say and do carries tremendous value and when you know this and take it serious–understanding the big picture of your life’s objective, then you can make a positive impact that will last.

Consider yourself a seed carrier. You are scattering it everywhere. Some seeds will do nothing, find no home to imbed themselves in. Others will find fertile soil of heart with just the right conditions to flourish and grow, while others will only grow so much then stop. This is not up to us to decide who will do what. All we can do is love, avoid personal feelings of hurt, and carry on knowing you’ve done your part and others may enjoy a higher quality of life because of the mark you made upon their heart.

Leadership does not come without great personal sacrifice.

Feed your body the right stuff so it will last.

Feed your heart and mind the right stuff so you will surpass any form of greatness you’ve experienced in the past.

Feed your soul Truth, Love and the Inspired Word of God. It is Pure and Good Sustenance from Above.

And never forget…

Take Joy in the Journey…

You have been sustained by Grace to be Great.

~Nicole
