There is no vain ambition in Christ. You do not have to compete with anyone. He requires you to remain true to what He needs you to do, not what He called someone else to do. God makes no mistakes...there are no duplicates. The gifts He put on the inside of you are for your calling. You cannot be someone else. Appreciate your talents and USE them. Do not squander or bury your personalized gifts. We are all given a specific amount of time on this earth, so do not spend another second hiding. God only sees you for who you truly are.💕
Run YOUR race! Stay in YOUR lane.
What God has for YOU knows YOUR pace and will come alongside YOU not requiring YOU to chase.
I'm running mine and would love to help you run yours - spirit, soul, body, and the brand that is your life.

Grace. I’m not always good at giving it. I’m also not always quick to give it, but I’m always quick to want it when I’m the one that messes up. Jesus reminded me on my prayer walk in the park this morning this powerful truth: giving grace isn’t saying what the person did was okay. It just saying you are deciding to forgive them, let the wrong go. Just like Jesus does for us, forgives then tosses our sins as far as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:12 “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.” I needed that reminder. To know you can still stand up for yourself and say your feelings were hurt and what they did was wrong, but at the same time decide to have grace, no matter what their response to your standing up for yourself is. Grace and standing up for yourself CAN go hand in hand. Speak the truth but do it in a loving way and chase it down with a glass (decision) of grace.
Grace is not given when conditions are met. Grace is unearned and undeserved. It’s not given once an apology is given or a person realizes they were in fact in the wrong. True grace is given before any of those things happen. True grace and forgiveness remains even if those things never happen, if no apology comes, no wrong is realized. Grace and forgiveness are choices and come before you feel like doing them. No one wins when grace is withheld though so it’s best for both parties to forgive and forget as soon as possible, so roots of bitterness don’t have time to ruin the relationships and jade you and rob you of your relationships. And the only way we can give that true grace is by tapping into His ability. Next time you and I are struggling to give grace, let’s pray for help. Let’s be humble and ask to borrow the strength of the Father who is always so quick to give us grace. Colossians 3:13 “Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” My husband and I watched a movie this weekend and the main character was prideful and messed up. It was so beautiful when he apologized to his friends that his decision hurt and they quickly embraced him back ... rest in comments!
“...I stand in awe, you’re the God overall I know...” 🧡
This weekend was sad, painful, and filled with sorrow as we are healing from the passing of my grandfather. ALS is an awful disease and witnessing something like that makes you question your faith. Or at least I did. Why would God place so much suffering & pain? What’s the point of all this? .
But then I look at my children. My sweat angels from God. My daughter will ask for this song and she lifts her hands to sing, and I have to believe that while there is no ‘reason’ my faith must still stand strong even when I don’t fully understand. I won’t have all the answers, ever... but, in our weakness I know He is always strong. 🧡
It doesn't matter if you're a size 2, 12 or 22, you can still totally inspire & empower others to transform their lives from the inside out. 💪🏻💕
I used to think only cookie cutter coaches who are size 2's with super fit bodies could support & empower women to transform their lives from overweight & depressed to confident & strong!
The truth was I didn't exactly hate my body when I was hitting a size 20 but I didn't love it either. I felt like it was this obstacle that was holding me back from making my dreams come true. I never felt empowered in it or strong. On the contrary, my body made me feel weak and sloth like because the weight was physically holding me down. 😢I believe we are so much more than the skin we are in BUT when you work on yourself from the inside & truly transform what's in your heart & mind the outside tends to reflect all of that inner work that comes with a self love, nutrition & fitness journey! 🙌🏻💕🍲🏋️♂️
Working on my nutrition & fitness helped me find my self love & confidence. 💖Learning to Fuel my body instead of trashing it with an endless cycle of binge eating 🍟& drinking 🍹made me feel powerful & in tune with my body. Using my body to do workouts I never in my life thought I could do made me feel like an effing bad ass 🏋️♂️Reading personal growth books 📖that helped me forgive my past, empower my present and build my future gave me the kick in the self love that I needed! 💕 And I couldn't help but share that with others.
Becoming a coach helped me realize that there are so many different stages & layers to fitness journeys & I would love to help you discover yours while you work on your goals babe. I want you to feel what I feel. To feel confident in the skin you're in, to kick booty & strengthen your body with workouts, to fuel your body with foods & vitamins that will empower you physically and mentally, to have a group of people who empower you and support you & to share how you feel & all of the amazing positive changes with others! 💕

As I was reading through the Word this morning in the book of John, I came across a verse that really spoke to me, “Stop doubting, and believe...” To share the context, Jesus rose from the dead after His Crucifixion, and appeared to the Twelve disciples, accept for one who wasn’t there when he appeared, Thomas. But he was not going to believe that Jesus rose from the dead until he had proof by seeing the nail marks in His hands and placing his finger where the nails were, and until he could put his hand in His side where a Roman soldier pierced His side with a spear.
It got me thinking perhaps the Lord is speaking to me, as the verse stood out to me: “Alisha, Stop doubting and believe.” As I to seem to have a voice in the back of my mind, “what makes you think you can do this?” Or “you are not organized enough or look at your past failures and that will tell you that you will just fail again.” I have this inner dialogue constantly in the back of my mind, I know it sounds crazy but I am truly sharing what goes in my mind with you all!!
So the “Stop doubting and believe” verse is a good reminder for me, because I am often the person who wants the proof before something amazing will happen, I want to see a sign, or anything to know what I am trying to do is going to flourish into something! Do you have those same thoughts and need the proof too?! I am going to stand on the Truth and Stop doubting and believe, thank you Lord for this reminder! #coffeeandjesus#womanoffaith#truth#morningdevotion#challengemyfaith#hope#faith#hismerciesareneweverymorning#love#blessed#standingontruth#momlife#stayathomemom#bayareamom#siliconvalley#bookofjohn
Can you say no easily and often?
Learning to say no is huge for many people, especially women.
But it can’t be one of the best communication strategies to deploy to ensure your protect your energy, and guard your heart and mind.
Say no to what no longer serves you.
Say no to people who are joy killers.
Say no to detours, delays, and distractions.
Say no when you don’t really want to go to whatever.
Say no when you really don’t want to participate in that thing.
Say no because you want some “me” time.
Say no because you need more time.
Say no because it feels right with your spirit.
Say no because you deserve better.
Say no because it opens up the possibilities to the yes that means the world to you.
Now say it with me,
Unless you’re saying no to saying no...😂 Double tap if you agree.
Ummm, please don’t say no. 😂
Hmmm...🤔 I should have thought through this post more.
Don’t say no to—
LIKE. ♥️ COMMENT. 🗣
Please and thank you!
The best thing about our life is that it belongs to us. Let's spend it pursuing our passions, pursuing our dreams. If we fail let it have been our choice. We can't live the lives that others envision for us. Find that thing that makes you happy, that you don't mind waking up early for or going to bed late for. Decide how do you want to live? Dream big!
Thanks to @thebudgetnista for sharing that live feed this morning! So encouraging!

Just your daily reminder...You are worthy. “You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense.” -Rick Warren
Accepting today that I have a God with a huge plan for my life for His Kingdom....and so do you.
These programs still amaze me!! Each day I wake up excited to see what’s in store! I was never one to stick with a program— nutrition or workout wise. I would start.... and for whatever reason end up falling off routine....then getting discouraged which led to off track nutrition.... which led to feeling uncomfortable again... to then deciding to start again... VICIOUS CYCLE!!! .
Fast forward to now!! I’m so thankful I have found a program—nutrition and workouts— that I’m able to stick with! This journey started 3 years ago and I’m excited to keep going!! .
Would you enjoy the idea of working out with a trainer everyday?? What if it was on your time— fits your schedule?
What if I told you this on-a-budget-mama agrees with the price?
Now that I have your attention— show me your 💪🏼❤️ below and I’ll tell you more ✨😉 #onmymission#healthylifechoices#choosehappydaily#blessedmama#startyourjourney #
Revelation of the day
Don't be afraid to step out, don't be afraid to make mistakes, don't worry about what people think or say. Give yourself permission to learn, to fall and to stand up again. Start with what you have and along the way, what you need will find it's way back to you. Nobody ever started at the top. Eventually it is not about the endresult but about WHO YOU AR E BECOMING along the process. You are being molded, shaped, you fall and you get back up again. You learn to inspire while you, yourself need the inspiration. You encourage while you Yourself needs the encouragement. You learn to appreciate the little things, You learn that life is bigger than you and that it's not only about YOU. You learn to serve instead of always wanting to be the leader. You learn and discover yourself again. You learn and discover life. The wealth of being succesful is in gratitude and in serving.
Whenever you think You know how life works, God shows you that His wisdom exceeds far beyond your wisdom. Life teaches us to humble ourself.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
I rest in Your promises
Now I am sure of this
No power is strong enough
To separate me from Your love
So let the waters rise
I will stand as the oceans roar
Let the earth shake beneath me
Let the mountains fall
You are God over the storm
And I am Yours
Even the thunder and the wind obey
At the command of my Father,
I set my feet upon Your mighty name
So let the rain fall harder
So take my everything, my flesh and blood
I'll lay me down on the altar,
I am forever covered in Your love
So let the rain fall hard
-I am yours by Lauren Daigle
I've been listening to this song lately and just absolutely love it. These words..this prayer is powerful! But it's my prayer. I picture the storms of life billowing all around me, waters rising, the waves crashing, the oceans roaring...but i will stand. Only because of Christ.
