I took a five-day trip to Houston, Texas to learn more principles about total healing and to get ordained. Now I’m back renewed, reinvigorated and more excited than ever to help you live the life you always imagined, that life of total transformation—body, soul and spirit. That life where Christ’s explosive power infuses you to conquer every difficulty, even stubborn weight loss!1


Breaking In

First, let me tell you about the trip. We had a great time in Houston despite the fact that the traffic was horrendous and we had to break into the rental car because they didn’t give us a key that would unlock the door. We didn’t really BREAK anything. The key would unlock the trunk. Good thing I have a skinny husband who could crawl through by pushing the seat down, although it only went half way down, and unlock the doors.

Highlights for me were, of course, getting ordained, but also a prophecy and a couple of prayers. Interesting that the prophecies came to anyone who had been locked out during the time they were at the conference. I also got locked out of the hotel room for a brief period, so it was a double prophecy for me.

Rapid Expansion and The Master Key

The prophecy was that God would provide rapid acceleration in whatever business/ministry we were in and that whatever had been blocking forward movement would be removed. New doors would be opened and new resources would be coming our way.

“God is giving you a master key,” the man prophesying said. “Reach out and take it and move forward. If you do not take it, you will not go forward. Something has been blocking your calling. God has removed it. Reach out and take His master key.”

I don’t know about you, but I want to be sure that I take that key. Now my prayer is, “What is the master key?” I don’t want to miss it.


I loved being prayed over by several who had already been ordained. One told me I had a breaker anointing. (I had to ask what that means!) She said I was anointed to help others obtain breakthrough. After those in my six-month coaching group, #KickWeight, have lost 394 pounds I believe the truth of that. She said, “It’s coming in an even greater way.” I so accept that prophecy because it relates to those I’m called to serve.


The second person prayed that my gift of compassion would become greater than it already is. He kept saying, “I see compassion, compassion and more compassion.” Afterwards, I turned to him and shared that prior to coaching I felt my compassion was pretty much non-existent. However when God called me to coach, He showed me the heavens opening and compassion for those who are where I once was began raining down on me. In that brief vision it was a compassion so great I could hardly contain it.

The man praying said to me, “That’s what I saw, but more is coming.” Even now when I see someone with a problem with weight, it’s all I can do to run up to them and hug them and find a way to begin a conversation.

Open Doors

At the conference, I didn’t have to do that. It was done for me when my friend and mentor, Wendy Walters, called me up with other authors for whom she has helped launch books, shared my story and had me and the others say a few words. After that session and throughout the conference, I had many connecting to me and wanting my help.

I love the fact that the prayers were about helping others and, in reality, the prophecy was as well. I desire others to be set free of issues with weight that just make them feel stuck, mired in mud so deep it would take a team of Clydesdales to pull them out.

Don’t Miss This Key

Maybe you know this, maybe you don’t, but I can’t pass up this opportunity to tell you because it may be your master key.  I am starting the second six-month session of #KickWeight on October 1. Registration is open now and will close by Oct. 5. This class will take us through the holidays, the worst time for those with a weight issue of any kind.

My prayer and my goal is to lead this group to lose weight instead of gain weight this holiday season and to continue losing through 2017. You can sign up for #KickWeight HERE.  That page has all the details for the group.

Deeper Level

For those who feel they need more coaching to get through this season, starting in October Sweet Change Weight Loss Coaching group will be studying emotional eating and freedom principles. We’ll be using my book, Sweet Freedom: Losing Weight and Keeping It Off with God’s Help to somewhat guide us in this process.

If you commit to six months of Sweet Change, you get weekly videos, my direct coaching help and free membership in #KickWeight. It’s definitely something to think about especially with Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner. Click HERE for Sweet Change Group.

The Gift Of Transformation

This year I challenge you to give yourself the gift of transformation by getting in a group and doing the work. It’s not enough to join, you have to do the work, listen to the videos, do the action steps and really go forward on your journey.

However, you have a choice. God always gives us a choice. I love that about God! You can choose to do nothing and nothing will change. Or you can decide to step out and join a group. It will be choosing life2 and you know that is always God’s choice for you.

God Loves You

One last thought, God loves you whether you lose weight or not. But He knows how much better you’d feel, how much happier you’d be, how dynamic of an experience you would have if for once you stepped into complete transformation—body, soul and spirit.

I’ll be waiting for you in either/or both of the groups. For #KickWeight, click HERE. For Sweet Change along with #KickWeight at no additional charge, click HERE.

See you in the groups!

P.S. If you’d like to give someone the gift of transformation to either of the groups, #KickWeight or Sweet Change, you can purchase the program and then send us an email at [email protected] and tell us your name and email and the person’s name and email to whom you have gifted the program. Upon purchasing the program, you will automatically get a welcome email to your email address. (It’s automatic. We can’t stop it.) Forward that email directly to the person to whom you are gifting the program and let them know what a great thing you’ve done for them. What a great gift for someone who desperately wants change, but cannot afford it. One piece of advice though, leave them alone after that, unless they share with you what they are experiencing.
