Get Ready to Renew, Recharge and Refocus!

Nothing is worse than feeling like you’ve spent most of your life circling around the same mountain gaining and losing weight year after year without ever making and real progress. The guilt and shame mounts with each failed attempt. How much more peaceful your life would be if you weren’t always worrying about your weight–counting calories–trying to find the right program for you???  

Simply put: Nothing leaves as bitter of a taste as regret.

It’s easy to look back on the past and beat yourself up for your lack of willpower; the goals you never achieved or the life you never had. To look at others and see what they have done.

I’m going to state the obvious: What has passed has passed. Your past is already written.  But your future? It’s still to be decided. It’s time to stop wasting time and finally Breakthrough what’s been holding you back from achieving your abundant life! Read more to find out how. 


  • If you’ve been going hard and feel like you need a rest. 
  • If you need to get away and spend some time in nature communing with God. 
  • If you’re ready to honor and celebrate who you are in Christ, this event is for you.
  • If you’re ready to meet like-minded health-conscious Christian sisters who love the Lord and want to honour him in their bodies, this event is for you. 




“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28

This is your time to get away and experience the unforced rhythms of grace. You deserve it. 


My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.  Ephesians 3:14-19
Together we’ll get low in surrender and submission so we can rise to higher heights in Him. 


Whether you realize it or not you are limited by your beliefs. 

We’ll help you identify what’s holding you back from achieving your healthy weight and breakthrough to a truly health-conscious mindset.

You’ll let go of past limiting beliefs that are not serving you so that you experience more freedom, peace, and joy.


When you have a clear vision of where you want to go and a strong “why” that’s important to you, you’ll be UNSTOPPABLE!

Resistance that used to sabotage and derail you will be reduced to minor setbacks that you’re able to easily glide over.

Our coaches & community will help you clarify your vision and empower you to achieve it. We’ll be creating a space for breakthrough, celebration and victory so that you can move towards and maintain your healthy weight. 


In a world where we’re constantly reminded that we don’t measure up, it’s good to be in a space where you are celebrated and valued. You are so precious in God’s eyes, and it’s time to see yourself as God sees you. 

This event is all about celebrating your breakthrough; celebrating God in you; celebrating your magnificence, your beauty, your worth, your value and your body as a temple of the living God. 


You’ll be interacting in our three-day intensive with like-minded, health-conscious Christian sisters. Our attendees have been interactive online and are excited to finally meet in person. The currency of relationships is priceless and will be celebrated during our time together. 


Inspire you to go S.L.O.W- Stop, Listen, Obey and Worship. 

If you’re anything like me, life is moving way too fast. But what if you could get off the proverbial hamster wheel and slow down the pace of your life?  Let’s learn how to do that together. 

Your life will never be the same after our Breakthrough Celebration event!
