Good news! We’ve opened more spots just for you in Overcomers Community and we are re-opening the doors until Jan. 6 ONLY! I want you to get in at this special price of ONLY $27/Month!

I Hear the Voices

I hear what those voices in your brain are telling you. They’re saying, “You’ve tried every weight loss program out there and you couldn’t stick with it. What makes you think this is any difference. You just can’t lose weight. It’s your lot in life to be fat.”

Friends, you do realize that is not God’s voice speaking to you. His voice is soft, gentle and kind. It is not condemning, rude and demeaning. We partner with the shame-filled voice because it’s what we believe about ourselves.

It’s not what God believes. He wants more for you than you than that. He wants to help you achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo all of that for you, for His miraculous power constantly energizes you.1

God’s Rescue

When I weighed 430 pounds, I was sure I had missed any chance of stepping into the destiny God had for me. I was constantly tired. I was lethargic. I wanted to sleep and eat all the time. I couldn’t focus. I had no clarity of thought. I had no stamina. I had not energy.

I was one step away from the grave. As a matter of fact, by the time I started my journey in earnest, I had six months left on the time-frame the cardiac surgeon gave me if I didn’t lose weight.

God rescued me by bringing people into my life who gently guided me and taught me tools to use to change my lifestyle. They didn’t give me another diet. I knew how to lose weight. I knew what to eat and not to eat. I knew how to move. That wasn’t the problem.

I just didn’t know how to change my habits and deal with my emotions and cravings. Most of all, I didn’t want to face the roots of my overeating. Most were fond memories of family feasts and decadent desserts. I wanted to get healthy. I didn’t want to die, but I wanted to eat my favorite foods, too.

What Is Pleasure?

God said, “Taste and see that I am good.2 Know that the plans I have for you are good3, really awesome. Understand you can’t live with one foot in the grave and fulfill everything I have for you to do.”

I love The Passion Translation version of the Scripture mentioned in the first line. I says, “Drink deeply of the pleasures of this God. Experience for yourself the joyous mercies He gives to all who turn to hide themselves in Him.”

As I began this journey with the understanding that sugar and comfort foods were my enemies instead of my friends, I began to see what that verse was really talking about. If I take my pleasure in God and all the good things He has created, I will have joy like I’ve never experienced before.

Destiny Test

God tells us we all have a destiny. I think it might scare us to know what it is. Clearly though we will never find out if we do not follow Him in obedience. That’s part of what this journey is all about. It’s a test to see if you can follow and obey God. Can you eat only what He tells you?

The great upside of my weight loss journey is that I finally feel I passed the test and stepped into my destiny assignment. I couldn’t do that until I lost weight. Making right choices with food and exercise, confronting emotional roots of my sugar addiction and admitting my weaknesses to God, helped me lose the weight.

By losing the weight, I gained the stamina, clarity, energy and vitality to write books. That’s a dream I’ve had for years. I’ve written four books and two study guides and am working on my fifth books. Writing books is all I’ve ever wanted to do.

Then, God enlarged my destiny by calling me to coach those He is calling to this lifestyle change journey. He has a call on your life and the devil does not want you to step into it. That’s why the evil one is working so hard to get you not to take the step of faith and come into the Overcomers Community.

Healthy Lifestyle Journey

This group is all about following God on your healthy lifestyle change journey. What you learn here will follow you for the rest of your life and will lead you closer to Him.

I’ve priced this group super low for this grand opening. I really want you to be able to take advantage of it while it’s at the lowest price it will ever be. If you join by Jan. 6, 2018 your cost will never go up as long as you are in the group. If you wait until later, the cost may be higher.

Right now, though pay only $27/Month. That’s less than $1 a day! What do you spend $1 a day on? Soda, junk food, candy bars? Give up candy bars and come into the group. You’ll save money just doing that.

Our first teaching video has already been posted. Another will be posted this week. Get in now and take advantage of everything we’ve got going on!

Your life and destiny depend upon it.


I’ll see you in the group!
