Merry Christmas!

After all that God has given us and still continues to give us, how much are we willing to sacrifice and give back to Him? Are we willing to sacrifice our desires, our wills and those things that get in our way and that try to cloud our view and understanding? Are we willing to push away the distractions to begin to build a stronger relationship with our father in heaven and our Savior Jesus Christ? The choice is always ours…We are the ones who determine how far we take our relationship with God. ❤️️✨

When we are able to become truly pure in heart and in our desires to please God, it becomes a lot easier to give of ourselves fully and completely to Him. We can begin to strengthen our relationship with Him by praying sincerely, waiting for answers, taking time alone to meditate, to ponder and to listen to His words. By doing this we will establish a strong relationship HIM that won’t be shaken by anything that could happen in this world. ✨

When our relationship with God is strong we are better able to sacrifice and give of ourselves to others. We begin to lift, love, forgive, and to give of our time and of our possessions for  glory of God and to bless the lives of our brothers and sisters on this earth. Being filled with the love of God we will begin to see past our differences and instead begin to truly love and see others in the way that God loves and sees all of us. ?

Our spiritual goal is to: Sacrifice of ourselves a little bit more, not just during the Christmas season but on a daily basis to come closer to God and to strengthen that relationship that we have with Him. As we do so, we will begin to notice that we will be lifted to new heights, to new understanding and even greater knowledge than what we have now. God’s love will begin to be greater and stronger in our lives….& There’s no better gift than that! ❤️️

Our physical goal is to: Eat the foods that will give us the most nutrition! 🙂 Combining that with exercise will help us to feel great! 🙂
I wish you all a Merry christmas and a Happy New year filled with new goals that will help us to reach higher in all aspects of our lives. Most  importantly, I wish for all of us as I tell the woman that come to class, that we will be able to  take care of our inner soul which is the one and only thing that we get to take with us when we leave this earth. Once our spirit is taken care of, everything else will fall into place. ?
I hope that you all know how thankful I am for the blessing that I’ve had to have met each and everyone of you! I’m grateful for the opportunity that I’ve had to write these weekly messages for the past year and for those of you who like me, have learned something from the messages that we have received. I hope that you know how thankful I am for the opportunity that God has given me to be able to do this! <3 to be able to teach the class and to strengthen ourselves not only physically but Spiritually  and emotionally as well. And not only that, but to be able to hear from so many of you! 🙂 You bless my life in so many ways! and I’s so thankful for all that you share with me and for teaching me so many wonderful things. The goal of the class is that we are surrounded by a positive environment and by people who will help us when we’re feeling down, to lift us up and to help us to move forward towards becoming a better version of ourselves. Please know that  I’m here for you always and that I love and care about each and every one of you❣️

Can’t wait for a new year to start, to set new goals and to work hard to achieve them. I’m here to support you! to motivate you and to help you!!! We are here to exercise and to take care of ourselves because we LOVE ourselves! & not because we are trying to be like somebody else or the way that society expects us to look. We do this because we love the body that God has given us and because we want to take care of it and glorify God through out body, mind and spirits! 🙂 Let’s be patient and do this together!!! <3 🙂

CLASS IS ON TONIGHT!!! Cant wait to burn some calories, get rid of stress, relax and meditate!!! Woohoo!!! ?

Hope to see you all tonight for the last class of 2016!!! 🙂
Love always,

Slow Down and Focus on Gratitude

During this time of the year in which we’re running around, shopping for gifts, feeling the busyness of the season and so much to do. It’s easy for us to feel anxious, stressed and overwhelmed by everything that requires our attention.

These are the moments in which we have to stop or slow things down a bit before they get out of control and we begin to be controlled by our circumstances instead of us controlling those things that happen around us.

At this time, if any of us are reading this message, or if we’ve been feeling the stress pile on top of a little too much,  please take a moment to stop everything that you’re doing to have a second to just close our eyes for a minute and to take a few deep breaths….Just taking a moment to be thankful for this simple ability to take in a breath. ?  With each breath that comes into our body we can experience deeper and deeper feelings of gratitude for all that we have and for all that we’ve received from God. We can allow those breaths to strengthen us and to renew and energize our body, our mind and our spirit ?  We really can control what we feel. It’s our choice 🙂 ??

Even something that simple, as taking in some deep breaths can help us to put things into a better perspective and can allow us to realize that the most important things in our lives, God has already given to us. We just have to remember to focus on gratitude instead of stress or complaining when we feel the stress of life….Focusing in gratitude will allow us to concentrate on what matters most.

God wants us to remember that we are never alone and that He is by our side to help us and to lift us up 🙂
He has said;
St. John 14: 18
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

How much do we trust that promise? How much do we trust Him to be by our side and to lift us up during our times of need? These are the things that we have to prove to God! He wants to see how much we really do trust Him. Then, after our faith is shown we will be abel to see even greater miracles than we can imagine. 🙂 Our trust and our gratitude will change everything! ✨?

Let’s remember to be thankful during this season.?? To take some time to breathe and to slow down for a little bit. We can show our gratitude to God by doing nice things for others and focusing on doing good and being a light to those around us. By doing so, we will feel exactly where we should focus our energies and we will be better able to let go of the unimportant things that try to come into our lives….We will know that we will be working on those things that matter most. And He will bless our effort and provide us with tender mercies daily to help us make it through one day at a time. <3 …We can do all things with His help ?

Our spiritual goal for the week is; To slow down a bit and focus on gratitude instead. ✨

& our physical goal for the week is to: Take a moment to exercise to get rid of stress, and to add meditation and relaxation which will be much needed and feel amazing!!!
If you are in need of this in your life, then  please try to make this happen for yourself. This will be a gift for yourself that will help you to function better and to be better for yourself and those around you. Our focus tonight in class will be to do that for ourselves. We will be there to burn calories, to relax, meditate and to do something amazing for our bodies, minds and spirits. ?
Bring a friend and feel the difference. <3
Really hope you can make it! This is the time of the year in which we need it most.  ??

We are all Children of Light

We are all children of light! put on this earth to have different experiences and challenges that are meant to help us grow and develop. It is up to us whether we choose to bring more light into our lives or whether we allow our light to be dimmed by the circumstances or situations that surround us.
During this Christmas season let’s bring in more light into our lives? So that we may be better able to light the lives of others as well.
1st Timothy 4:12 says:
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
These are some of the ways in which we can bring light into our lives. We can choose to change the way we speak and to use words that are uplifting and edifying.That our conversations may not be filled with complaints, or negativity, but that instead, we can have the courage to STOP complaining and replace the complaints by thinking about those things which we are thankful for…..Gratitude is healing! Complaining is not….So, Let’s talk positively about ourselves and others.
To have charity means that we can be kind and we can forgive. We choose when we hold grudges and for how long. We choose if we withhold charity from others or if we choose not to forgive. The story of the Israelites is the perfect example; a journey that could’ve taken 11 days took them 40 years to complete and that its because they kept circling the same mountain again and again. How many times do we want to circle our own mountains? why can’t we learn from them and move forward on our journey?….The choice is ours. 🙂
We can also strengthen our spirits by doing those things that bring light into our souls. Things like reading God’s word daily, kneeling in prayer, having humility to change our mistakes and to try again each day to better ourselves. We can also help to provide service for others in physical spiritual and emotional ways. By doing these things our souls will begin to fill with even more light and we will notice that our doubts and fears will go and this will fill us with faith enough to trust in God fully in ALL things. <3
And finally we can have purity in our hearts and minds. We can do this by choosing to spend our time wisely, we can read or listen to uplifting and edifying messages that will help us to fill ourselves with light.? We can use our thoughts to think about all that is good in our lives and all that will be good in the future and to focus our energies on the things that will be pleasing to God and that will be for the benefit of our souls and those around us.
By bringing this light into our lives we will not only make ourselves brighter. But we will also brighten our homes, our families, our communities and our surroundings.
Mathew 5: 16 says; 

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.?

& also speaking about light,
Psalm 27:1 says; 
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
All that is good comes from God. He is the light of our lives and the giver of all good gifts. He wishes for all of us to know that we are not alone. That we have access to His light constantly in our lives because we come from His presence. He teaches us that we should never be afraid but instead have faith in Him. As our desire to choose the light and come closer to Him increases, so will be His closeness to us. We will feel His strength in our lives and we will notice that we will be better able to forgive, to love, to have more charity and to be filled from inside out.
 Acquiring Christlike qualities will not only make our lives more joyful but it will bring peace and tranquility into our souls.  
I’m including an advent calendar for the month of December with Christlike qualities that we can exercise each day. I know that we will be strengthened by all the little acts of kindness that we do and we will be better able to light world.  ☀
This is our spiritual goal for the week! Also if you know of a place in which we can do service, take a meal or volunteer to help others please let me know and I would love to share it or plan an activity to do service with the girls from class  ?
Our physical goal for the week is to exercise for our mental stress! 😉 Our minds and our bodies need exercise! let’s aim for at least 3 days this week to do something that will help us to get rid of stress in case you can’t come to class tonight. Which is what we do every week! Get rid of stress! It feels AMAZING!!!!  Hope you an join us to renew ourselves tonight and to be filled with more light! ?
Love always,
