I wasn’t getting any better. I started methodically asking myself if there was a place for me to turn around. I needed to get out of this line of traffic. I began to feel panic. I was sweating and starting to nervously shake. I tried changing the music I was listening to. I tried praying. I tried breathing in for five, holding for five, and releasing for five- it only made it worse.Continue reading

When I picture Jesus viewing my heart, I want to pull his arm to the more beautiful engaging and colorful flowers of my garden. But in His sweet tenderness, He leads me back to this ignored and pushed away area.Continue reading
Time to do our monthly recap of The Wholistic Hearts podcast.
We kicked off the 2021 year with pursuing wholehearted, holistic living. We are called to live a life abundantly, and I believe it is when we step into wholeness with our whole heart, mind, soul, and spirit. Each episode was deliberate picked for the start of 2021 so that we can have a foundational truth on which to ground ourselves.
I had the pleasure of talking about what self care looks like in this season in a holistic approach.
Then we had a beautiful conversation with Darlene Kalawe about wholehearted, honest faith. It was filled with refreshing vulnerability and honesty.
The next week we talked about holistic nutrition with one of the best Transformational Coaches, Ashley Brooke Harbour.
And wrapping up the month of January, I dropped a new encounter to help us step into more of God's peace.
You can take a listen to all the January episodes below or on most of the podcast platforms.
Never miss an episode…
Share the podcast with a friend! I'd so appreciate it!

Jesus said, “You must love your neighbor in the same way you love yourself.” Sometimes we can forget the second half of this verse. Jesus grouped it into one of the most important commandments!
Loving ourselves entails digging into the deep places of our hearts and tending to all parts of us. This is done through self care.
In pondering this topic of self care, I became aware of the importance of RECEIVING. Receiving means we are accepting a gift. Self care offers us a chance to:
Receiving Rest when you are a go-getter.
Receiving Love in the calloused places of our hearts.
Receiving the Kindness of the Holy Spirit to soften our hardened souls.
Receiving Affirmation from your Creator when we are criticizing our bodies.
Receiving the Truth behind the lies we hold onto.
Receiving rest when we are tired.
Receiving care when we have used up all our resources to care for others.
Receiving Beauty where we have been lost in the to-do list.
So, my friend, how are you loving your self well in this wild and resilience building season? Listen to Wholistic Hearts Podcast today for some tangible ways to take care of your self.

Part of living holistically is learning to love your self well. One way to do that is through finding a mentor or a coach to speak into your life.
For me when I began working with a Holistic Lifestyle coach, I started to notice the areas in my life which I needed some serious boundaries. I grew up being a people pleaser. It is my default mode. “Don't rock the boat, Kristin.”
As my coach began to point out the areas where I actually was not practicing loving kindness towards myself. There were a lot of times in my life where I wanted to say no but I would say yes.
My own lack of boundaries and self care was leading to a sneaky underlying resentment and bitterness.
I began to feel sick to my stomach over commitments I made. I could feel the “no” response in my body yet I would say “yes” to this or that commitment.
Through coaching, I learned the word “no” was a gift.
Psalm 16:6 says “The boundary lines of the land have fallen for me in pleasant places…” Boundaries are actually a beautiful thing to grasp!
Through my Spiritual Breakthrough Coaching program, I can help you navigate healthy boundaries.
If you struggle with being over committed or a people pleaser, I'd love to come alongside and coach you!

I woke up each morning feeling like I was treading water. I felt like I was drowning. My life felt completely overwhelming. My four kids all needed me beyond what I was able to do in my own strength. I felt disconnected from my hard working husband. I felt alone in my anxiety and the loss of who I was.Continue reading

Our spirits are craving solidarity and steady ground. I’ve compiled a Gift Guide for the Spiritual Mama of 2020. As a follower of Jesus, we are called to rest, which means ultimately we are called to receive. I pray for your heart to RECEIVE the external gifts and ideas for ways to take care of your heart as we round out the monumental page turner of a year- 2020.Continue reading
