We take it up a notch and allow you to engage in certain topics that we usually run from. How can one have a purposeful impact without out sharing their stories with others? Click here to listen to my story.
While at times, women can get attacked with feeling overwhelmed, insecure, inadequate and unprepared, we believe that you can push past the distractions and become a vessel that can be used by the Lord. We are passionate about helping women, and providing resources by way of studies and sermons as resources to encourage women to be who God called them to be.
Deep conversations are not just a "woman thing", although women inherently excel at it. God calls men to depth, and calls them into brotherhood with each other. So next time the game is on, invite the men to go a little early. Ask them about their families, about work, about their interests outside of football. Start the momentum; be real, and share of yourself. And soon enough, you are likely to find that you value your brothers even more than the sport. Here you will find a resource for the "PURPOSE" man, who is desiring to grow in his purpose.
Fitness is more than simply being able to lift your weight above your head or your chin up over a bar. It is more than running the 5K or the 10K. It goes deeper than a six-pack or sharply defined biceps. To understand what it means to be truly fit, we need to look deeper at our holistic level of fitness. Holistic fitness includes physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, and it goes beyond the exercise that you get at a gym.
There are thousands of studies that have shown mindfulness meditation-can positively impact mental and physical health. Whether it's by reducing stress, improving sleep, increasing focus, or improving relationships, research shows mindfulness works.
