The Dashing 30 Day Devotional was something that was on my heart to write for a long time. It all began one day when I was taking a walk, listening to a Christian book on my iPod. I began to think about how God had used books, sermon series, study guides, and devotionals so many times throughout my life to get me rooted in the truth in certain areas.
Suddenly, and idea came to me…I should write out a 30 day devotional using the truths that God has shown me over the years. As I sat down to write, I suddenly became flooded with a desire to go through my journal entries. These were the very truths that have set me free over the years when God was leading to me to a place of freedom in the area of my weight, my eating habits, and most importantly, my complete surrender to Him. As He began to reveal His higher purpose for me during this time in my life, I began to relinquish control, along with my fears, doubts, and anxieties about my weight.
I believe the Lord had me write the 30 day devotional as a way to bring revelation of His love, His freedom, and His victory that He has provided for each one of His daughters in the area of weight and true beauty!

Good Morning! As some of you may already know, Sunday was my 27th birthday! It was a beautiful day…and truly a celebration of such a wonderful year…So I thought I’d share pictures from the weekend with all of you!
My husband, sister, and I started off the celebrations on Saturday by going to plum market where we found Zevia and Artic Zero! Zevia is a soda sweetened with stevia, and Arctic Zero is an amazing protein packed ice cream that has only 150 calories per pint! Both can only be found at specialty stores, so these really were special birthday treats!
If you’ve ever seen the Food Network show “Throwdown”, then you are familiar with the judging process that takes place between two winning recipes!
I had so many awesome entries for my Protein Shake contest, that I simply couldn’t pick a winner on my own. So, in order to pick a winner, I decided to do a “Dashing Dish Protein Shake Throwdown”… That way, I had three un-biased judges doing the judging!
Watch the video below to see the judging process take place, and see the winner of the contest, and proud new owner of the Professional Ninja Blender! Be sure to check out the Recipe for the Winning Shake Here! Thank you so much to all who entered!
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” ~Galatians 5:22-23
My husband and I are currently doing Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, which is an awesome Christian based ‘financial makeover’, that is designed to help you budget your money wisely, pay off debt, and save. His approach is opposite of this world’s system in a lot of ways as far as finances go. In fact, his mantra is, “Live today like no one else, so one day you can live like no one else.” Essentially the program teaches you how to apply spiritual truths relating to money, in addition to practical knowledge and self-control.
Starting this program has sparked a lot of conversation with my husband about how taking care of our finances relates so much to how we take care of the bodies God has entrusted to us.
