Weight loss or health journey?

When I first started my weight loss journey, a trainer abruptly commented, "Well, you didn't get fat with one meal, you won't get skinny with one workout." While my feelings were hurt, the message was loud and clear: consistency leads to results--based upon "good" or...

      "A healthy lifestyle is not about what you see when you look in the mirror; it's about The One we're trying to mirror." --Jimmy Pena   P.S. If you struggle with long-term toxic beliefs and unhealthy habits that are keeping you from living and...

Which of these is a fact?

Which of these is a fact? Exercise is an opportunity to punish myself for last night's eating choices. My body is the Holy Spirit's home. When I get to (insert goal weight/size) I will be happy. If you responded with #2, you are correct! This is confirmed in 1 Corin...

Do you hate your thighs? Belly? or…?

What do you see? Did you know that you can only see 70% of your body without using a mirror? Yep. You can't see your eyes, ears, neck, or how about the back of that funky-looking-messy-bun you fashioned up in the back!!? Do you tend to see 70% or 30%...

A Season of Breaking

Have you ever questioned God, "What on earth are You doing?" When we encounter times in life where we just don't get-- why the adversity, why the struggle, why the ____ you fill in the blank. I want to remind you that Papa prunes to provide a plentiful harvest. "He...

“Getting fit” is not a 1X achievable goal

    I work with women who tell me their goal is to “get fit.”   Friend, I hate to break it to you, but that is not a completely achievable 1X goal. When you commit your health to His hands, you are constantly transforming into a healthier version of you with every...

A Prayer for New Beginnings

A Prayer for New  Beginnings Father God, I thank You for the new opportunities that are before me. You have divinely assigned the right people in my path and have orchestrated the circumstances in my favor. This is the necessary foundation for even greater things to...

How often do you weigh yourself?

  Weighing our worth   Have you ever obsessed over the number on the scale? (Or maybe you still do?)... that was me. I used to strip down naked--I'm talking not even a hair tie, earring, or dribble of pee, before I stepped on the scale every morning to...

Do you have any “unlearning” to do?

    What do you need to unlearn?   My dear friend Karen sent me this wonderful book last week: The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse. It is filled with pearls of simple wisdom; the above image is a page that really resonated with me. We have a...

Optimal health opens 🚪of opportunities to serve bigger!

I heard a sermon from Pastor Rick McFarland last week; he shared a great quote: "I want God to say, 'Well done, good and faithful servant. Not well, you're done.''🤯 To fulfill our part of the Great Commission (Matt 28: 18-20) and serve God with our YOUnique gifting...

Do your dreams offend God?

Don’t read this until Monday morning

  "Humility is stepping into your destiny not based on who you are or what you can do, but who God is and what He will do through you." --Steven Furtick, Unqualified    Summer is here. We're half way through 2021, and it's the final week of June. I felt it...

  You > the challenge I don't know who this is for, but the Holy Spirit led me to this message and scripture this week. And as my friend Lori says, "God is in the two-for-business", so I trust this is for someone here...   If it's you,  remember this:...

Make heaven crowded, make earth healthy

  Over the course of the last few weeks during meetings with my CEO coaches (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) I further honed my mission: make heaven crowded, make earth healthy. I fulfill this mission through:   My podcast, The Shine with Frannie Show!...

The time I ate cake from the garbage…

Have you ever messed up on your clean-eating-and-solid-exercise-streak mid-week and waited until the following Monday to hit reset? I've been there, sadly too many times to count. And I've had several rock bottom moments that left me questioning if I would ever have a...

While I hate math, I’ve been obsessed with numbers.

While I hate math, I’ve been obsessed with numbers.

Numbers on the scale
Numbers in my $bank account
Numbers of followers/likes/etc…

But earlier this year, God spoke to me: “Are those numbers the source of your joy or am I?”
BOOM! MIC DROP!😳
So I made a vow with Him that I would not obsess over the numbers of downloads/plays/listeners on my podcast when I started a few months ago. I agreed to look at them monthly.

I just about peed my pants when I looked at them earlier this week! 3000+ plays!

Oh my word! I am so excited! While this might seem insignificant to some podcasters who get 3000 plays per episode, this is something bigger for me. Starting my podcast was an act of courage, faith, and obedience. It was doing something afraid–something I never thought I could/would/should do.
But guess what? Through my podcast, I am sharing the Good News and fulfilling my purpose to help others get healthier, stronger, and more confident using God’s Word–this is part of living a purpose driven life.

Sister, what scary new thing is God calling you to do that will be another step in fulfilling your life’s purpose?

Thank you to all who’ve listened and support the show by sharing, reviewing, commenting, and even financially giving. I am beyond blessed!

And if you’ve yet to listen, hop on to the platform you listen to podcasts and subscribe to the Shine with Frannie Show today.

Last week I shared the details of Shine with Frannie's new summer program in our Facebook group, Free & Favored.   I realized not every subscriber is in our group, plus I have guy followers, too! If that's you, #40 Strong is opened up to you, too! As you know...

Do you have a dream that’s died or lies dormant?

Dare to Dream! Did you know that our dreams are a vehicle for a conversation with God? And...God gives you dreams as an invitation to trust Him to do immeasurably more than you could ever ask or imagine! Eph 3:20 That's powerful stuff right there! Is there a dream...

How often do you workout? How about spiritually?

"The Sabbath isn't just a 24-hour time slot in your weekly schedule; it's a sphere of restfulness that goes with you throughout your week, a way of working from rest not for rest, with nothing to prove. It's a way of bearing fruit from abiding, not ambition... The...

Success is in the 12th step

    The 12th step of Alcoholics Anonymous is supporting another on their road to recovery. It is noted that this step is an integral piece in long-lasting recovery and overall success. It makes complete sense, as we are not only designed for relationship,...
