How To Make 2018 Your Healthiest Year Yet! [FREEBIE inside]

“But forget all that—
    it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
19 For I am about to do something new.
    See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
    I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
20 The wild animals in the fields will thank me,
    the jackals and owls, too,
    for giving them water in the desert.
Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland
    so my chosen people can be refreshed.
21 I have made Israel for myself,
    and they will someday honor me before the whole world."
Isaiah 43:18-21 NLT 

A few years ago I ditched New Year's Resolutions because making them never really changed me for the long term. Maybe they work for you and maybe they don't. But either way, I hope you'll continue reading.

My desire to live a healthy life has been something I've been pursuing since 2007, and over that time God has expanded my understanding of what this means. In the beginning, I only focused on the physical aspects of health like diet and exercise. Over the years, I've learned more and more about nutrition and how the body works, and along the way I've definitely lost weight, but it has never lasted. At some point, I've gained the weight back. Did you know 95% of people who lose weight will gain it back within one to five years?  That's not a very encouraging statistic, to say the least.

In the fall of 2015, God began teaching me in a deeper way how to trust Him.  As the new year approached, I was contemplating making New Years Resolutions and He began impressing the word abide on me in many different ways and from many different sources. I knew in my spirit this was the word He had for me in 2016. So I didn't make any New Year's resolutions for 2016 and instead focused on this word through that next year. I continually asked God to show me, to reveal to me, and to teach me what it meant to abide in Him. And in perfect God fashion, He did.

So in December 2016, I earnestly began praying about God's word for me in 2017, but He didn't reveal it right away. I just kept hearing him say "Trust me, Emilie. I'll tell you when the time is right." So against my nature, I chose to wait. Which ironically is exactly what it means to abide!  It seemed there were changes happening...deeper shifts in my soul and spirit that weren't evident on the outside but that were making a significant impact on the inside!

Over the past two years, God has been working in me from an inside-out approach and as I look forward to 2018, I know without a shadow of a doubt, this will be the healthiest year I've experienced yet! I'm no longer defining health as purely physical. God has taught me a much bigger all-encompassing definition of health and how pursuing a purely physical transformation will continue to elude me if its all I focus on.

Sister, I believe the same is true for you! And I can't wait to share with you how to make 2018 your healthiest year yet!

As I shared in the video, today's freebie will help you help you take the desires in your mind and heart and get them down on paper.  Did you know that 92% of people who set goals or have New Year's resolutions never achieve them?  And did you know that you have a 42% increase in achieving your resolutions or goals just by writing them down?

God has placed desires within you for your life that won't just come to fruition just because you think about them. He wants us to come into agreement with Him and partner together in becoming more of who He created us to be!

Scriptures Mentioned In This Episode:

"So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you:
Take your everyday, ordinary life
—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—
and place it before God as an offering.
Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.
Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it
without even thinking.
Instead, fix your attention on God.
You’ll be changed from the inside out.
Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it.
Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity,
God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12:1-2 The Message


The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.
    You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
Psalm 51:17 NLT 


 "But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 
For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord.
And the Lord—who is the Spirit—
makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image."
2 Corinthians 3:16-18 NLT
