Let's Fuel!

Hey ya’ll!

I wanted to start my blog simple but with truth! A little insight into what you can expect through this journey with me and what my hopes and intentions are for all of us! I started this page as a way to express and combat my personal struggles with this idea that my body and my looks determine my worth in this world. The truth is this:

I know that I was “fearfully and wonderfully made,” created in God’s perfect image,

with no mistakes, no photoshop, no edits.

… but sometimes we all need a good reminder of this.

I have a passion for health and wellness and what that means not just in terms of our workout routines and the superfoods we stock our pantries with… but more than that how we choose to love and fuel ourselves and our souls with truth and positivity. Our bodies were made for more than a canvas to show abs and muscle, and for even more than just performance. Our bodies were made for the purpose to love and grow and share in God’s name and work for His mission. But... we all know the pressure society puts on the looks of these bodies. What Fueling my Faith is all about is changing this mindset from being healthy because of an unobtainable and TEMPORARY cosmetic goal to being healthy to fuel our bodies and fuel our souls to live out our mission in God.

I also know.. Or hope, some of my readers are not Christ followers. And if this is the first time you are hearing about God trust me this is still a place for you and still a place I want everyone to feel comfortable and supported. While I believe in a God that perfectly planned every hair on my head and yours, you don’t have to see that to understand that the way you look DOES NOT define YOU. Your worth and your identity DOES NOT come from the number on the scale or what you see in the mirror. You are beautiful and you are loved and this is designed to be a space to promote that and to encourage health in a way that honors your body (its needs AND WANTS!).

My hope is that through this platform we can all learn and all grow in ways that at times have seemed nearly impossible. At my lowest points I have looked at my body ashamed and disappointed, and while I am choosing to fill my mind and heart with truth… I am not “cured”. I am not writing because I have all the answers… but by choosing to fix my eyes on Christ, I sacrifice finding answers to find something better... peace. The simple truth is that even with Christ I am still a sinner, and the world around me is going to continue to tell me things that draw me close to it and farther from Him. Sometimes what we need is just a reminder of the truths so that we remember that the world’s way isn’t the only way… and that's what I am here to do!

My hope is that y'all will continue on this journey with me to find peace. Knowing I am no different, better, or stronger than you… but God is.

And that brings me to my final goal... TO SHARE GOOD FOOD!!! And I thought in the interests of my first post and getting to know a little bit about me, it was only fitting that my first recipe was my favorite food… PANCAKES! No matter where I have been in my relationship with food or faith… I have ALWAYS made room for pancakes! And in the spirit of community building, it’s a big batch… so enjoy it with friends or family and maybe ask them: “Where are you finding your identity right now? And what would change if you chose to find it in Christ?”

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Galatians 2:20
