When I became a Christian 20 years ago, I stopped dieting. For the
first time I felt loved, and I knew I was accepted for who
I was, no matter my weight. While that is very much true,
I didn't realize at the time that we're not only called to give
him our spirit to be made alive, and submit our soul to Him and
His leadership, but our body is as much in the equation. We are
called to honor Him with our body as well, and
our body is His as much as our spirit and soul. Our bodies need
to be ruled by His Holy Spirit rather than our
soul which is often the case. We are the temple of Holy Spirit and
have a responsibility to take good care of it.
took me many years to figure that out. In 2007
I started on my weight loss & health journey, having reached
my maximum of close to 100 kilos (220 pounds). Over the years the
pounds dropped (and sometimes came back on), and
my diet changed more and more. Today sometimes
it still amazes me when I realize that I cannot
put certain food into my mouth any more that I used to love.
always loved sports - running ski races in my early
teen years, and then doing dancing of all kinds (rock'n'roll acrobatics,
ballroom, tap dance, performing). I've also always loved working
out, and in 2012 I felt God leading me to become
a certified fitness trainer & health coach to
add this important aspect of bringing healing on all levels
to the nations.
from my own journey it was very obvious that working out alone is
not enough most of the time to lead to weight loss
that can be maintained. We need to pull out the roots of
what led to the weight gain in the first place. Once those strongholds
are gone, it suddenly becomes so much easier to eat and live right,
honoring God free from baggage from the past.
is why in my opinion fitness training & inner healing
need to go hand in hand when we want to lose weight and
regain our health. And further below I'm going to tell you about
an exciting third aspect.
of my own weight loss & health journey, and the many hours of
inner healing I have received, my passion is to see other Christians
conquer that seemingly unsurmountable mountain
to becoming healthy and honoring God with their bodies.
you know there are things from your past holding you back, you can
schedule an inner healing session with me. I've learned approaches
by the Elijah House, Theophostic Prayer Ministry
and the Immanuel Approach, and received about 150
hours of the latter two myself.
you ever wondered how the Israelites marched through the desert
all those years, and the Bible tells us there was not one
sick among them? How did they live for so long in ancient
of the answer may lie in their knowledge of the healing
properties of oils extracted from plants. Today the pharmaceutical
industry has replaced that knowledge, and we've let New Agers steal
the monopoly on natural remedies and scare us Christians away from
anything natural. It's time we take back what God has given
to us! Pure, essential oils have amazing healing properties
without harming our bodies in any way. The more I learn, the more
I'm intrigued and fascinated and amazed by our God.
is why I'm using essential oils myself and treat my children with
them, with amazing results no medication could
have. It's also why I've gone through training to be more effective
in applying the oils.
