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.

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

One of my former course participants and now coaching client wrote this encouraging review about my online courses:
“Have you ever thought about the opportunity of creating a two way relationship with Jesus?
Or going beyond the “checking the boxes” steps of being a Christian (going to church, praying, paying tithes)?
Kristin does such an amazing job at suggesting different ways to re-enage your heart and takes you on a journey to dig deeper into your soul to be able to find out what you, individually, want from your spiritual relationship as a follower of Jesus.
I loved being able to try a new technique each week of connecting with Jesus…It really took me out of my comfort zone and opened up many masked feelings from my life journey in a positive and enlightening way.
One of my favorite parts of the way Kristin leads us is using Encounters to personally connect with Jesus and showing us how to create a two-way communication through visions and journaling.
I highly recommend that everyone goes through a course like this!
It is a positive growth experience of self discovery where you will learn much about what you desire from your soul to create a more connected relationship with Jesus and find contentment and peace in your heart.”

Some of the most common comments I get from people when they see our big family or hear we have four kids is “I don’t know how you do it all!” I get it. It comes from a place of them trying to wrap their head around all the moving parts.

Hey Mama…you struggling to go to sleep at night? Are you tossing and turning?
I have heard more than ever that people's sleep is being affected. No doubt there is a lot of anxious energy in the air with the political environment coming to a head, the never-ending pandemic, school in and outs, etc. No wonder we are having a hard time sleeping.
Studies show that we, as Mamas– meaning you and me – are largely incapable of realizing that we're sleep deprived.
Or maybe we DO REALIZE IT and are begging for a solid night sleep around here.
When you’re sleep deprived, you’re largely unable to perform your best, look your best, and feel your best…
The truth of the matter is, that there's nothing that will break you faster than poor sleep.
(Can I get a box of tissues please?! I seriously turn on my water works as soon as I have a poor night's sleep)
On the flip side, there’s nothing that will improve your health, mood, and performance more (and more quickly) then sleeping well.
If you’re tired of being tired and ready for quality, restorative sleep, then you need to check out my friend Dr. Kirk Parsley’s Sleep Remedy.
It was originally developed for Navy SEALs, but it’s safe and effective for business owners, athletes, and stay-at-home moms and dads.

Nine years ago, I was in so much physical torment. My feet felt like fire ants were stuck inside the bottom of my foot. My skin raw and blistering from the uncontrollable itching. Sleep was not an option with this intense rash on my feet which lasted for 5-7 days for years upon years. Questions played through my mind like a scroll that never ended. Why did it have to come every 21 days? Why could no one answer what was happening to my body? Why doesn't medicine help? I went to doctors desperate for answers and each one giving me the look like, “Hmm…I don't know what it is.” Referral after referral I got no where. I felt at the end of my rope over and over. Each month being hopeful that something would help- prayer, essential oils, supplements, medicine, etc.
But each month I felt like I was slapped in the face. After seven years of torment, I had a major epiphany. My husband sat next to me while I cried in frustration and said this pivotal annoying profound question, “Babe, what if it doesn't go away?” I felt like an instant pouting child. I so wanted it to heal. I wanted healing desperately. I wanted breakthrough. I hated how my body was acting. There was a legit anger at my body for creating this rash every month. But something within me started to shift as I pondered this question. I started saying, “Even if the rash comes back, my body is still a temple. God gives me strength to be okay. I can still be a mom who loves her kids well. I can still show up.”
In the ugly moments of insomnia and racing mind, I began to see Jesus in the midst. I do not believe He caused this situation but I do believe He has taught me more than I could have without the rash.
Fast forward a few years past the conversation with my hubby, and the rash still continues though it seems it is fading. I have worked with my functional lifestyle coach for many years to discover the beauty of my relationship with my body. I am learning to love the parts of my body which speak very loudly especially when it comes to the rash. I am learning to trust what it is saying instead of fight against it.
Our body is telling us a story, and it is our job to listen. Sooner or later if we ignore it long enough, it will yell instead of whisper. Our body is a tool to listen. God uses the most amazing ways to speak with us. Through this thought process, I have spent multiple hours praying and asking what the feet represent. He answers. In your body, what is it saying? What is the Lord saying through your heavenly temple? Develop a relationship with your body which is based on love and not hatred. As I emerge from years of this place of hatred to a place of love, I continue to find freedom from pain, self-judgement, and walk more into who He has created me to be.
Do you need help guiding you through these conversations? I'd love to come alongside and coach you through. Contact me here.
