I’m angry.
It’s the “enough-is-enough”-kind-of-fired-up.
It’s the woman-on-a-mission-kind-of-mad.

Here’s the skinny.
If you know me, you likely know that I am on a mission to help girls and women become stronger, healthier and more confident. 

This passion was born from my own pain of lacking strength, good health, and confidence, even still today–especially in the arena of confidence–I struggle.

Do you know why?

Because the enemy’s studied me (and you!) since we were knit together in our mothers’ wombs. (I highly suggest reading all of Psalm 139!)

He knows our every weakness. 
He prides himself on interrogating us with fear. 
He wears us down and makes us question ourselves and most importantly, Our Father.

And I firmly believe that the enemy’s plot to bring us down is directly related to the obesity epidemic in America.

I know.
This sounds like crazy talk.

But think about it:
Fact #1: We need food to live.
The enemy knows this so why not jack up the food with unnecessary chemicals and sell it at a low price so that it is an “affordable” and quick-on-the-go option for our fast-paced society?

Fact #2: Exercise can be strenuous and cause muscle soreness.
I don’t think anyone ever got injured or sore eyes from binge watching Netflix.

Fact #3: Heroine, cocaine, and texting while driving are all staggering, lethal, and unnecessary causes of death in the US, however they still don’t hold a candle to heart disease. And guess what, sunshine?
Heart disease can be prevented through diet and exercise. 

Don’t even get me started.
This burns my britches.

I firmly believe that the enemy is out to attack our health, and while the battlefield begins in our minds, he’s crafty and preys on “easy targets”–our tastebuds and snooze buttons.

So here’s the thing, sunshine.
I could go on and on and on, but I’d rather make this a conversation for those who are interested.

I am going to be doing a Facebook Live video TOMORROW–Friday, June 23 at 7:00a.m. EST. (It will be available on the Shine with Frannie FB page so you can access it if you are unable to join live.)

During this livestream, we will have an opening prayer, a mini-message where I’ll share more about my personal beliefs regarding the enemy’s schemes over our health and how we can combat them with our most powerful weapon: The Bible. And then we’ll close with Q/A and a prayer.

If you have questions, please send them my way.
Email them by simply hitting “reply” to this message.

Oh, and if you have someone in your life who you think would benefit from participating,sunshine, feel free to send them this email or invite them to like the Shine with Frannie FB page.

Looking forward to seeing you Live tomorrow morning,
