Episode 183: Hit the Right Tone Zone
It's hard to truly hide what we believe.  People listen to our words, but they react to our tone.  In fact, 38% of communication comes from our tone.  In a 2-year marriage study, the tone of voice was a better predictor of marital success than any other factor.  Incredible!  Did you know faith has a tone and so does fear?   Faith sounds like winning and fear sounds like whining.  If success continues to elude you check your tone.  You may not realize your words and tone don't match.  It's time to tune up your tone.  Contact Us: Think About It: 93% of communication is non-verbal.

Episode 178: What Do YOU Want?
We have lost the ability to focus.  Researchers say in every waking hour our mind is wandering 47% of the time.  We think it's even more than that.  Look at your life. Is it the same as it was last year or even five years ago?  Are you living vicariously through someone else's social media account?  Are you unhappy, overweight, bored, or depressed?  Without a solid "why" it's easy to binge-watch Netflix, pound a box of Oreos, spend money mindlessly, or even have a good life ... but not a great one.  So, you have to get serious about what YOU want? A healthier body, better relationships, more money ... a MIRACLE?  If you really want to attain something it's going to take immersion: deep mental involvement. No one goes to the Olympics by playing pick-up ball on Saturdays.  Stop harkening to the ding on your phone and start living your life.  Decide what you want, and immerse yourself.   Think About It:  If you need a miracle one scripture isn't going to get you healed. Frontload your life. Get your immersion working with a morning routine. Scriptural Reference: Proverbs 4-20-27 TPT Contact Us: Check Out Our Book: Check Out Online Course:

Are you feeling triggered?  Inflation is at an all-time high, there are wars and rumors of wars, and nothing is uglier than politics.  According to Dr. Caroline Leaf, fear triggers 1400 negative physical and chemical responses in our bodies.  Is it any wonder people feel frustrated, angry, and worried?  However, you don't have to live from bad news to bad news.  You can rise above the chaos by learning to develop the measure of faith that is on the inside of you.  Stop being triggered and start firing back.  It's faith time!  Mental Muscle Moments: 1. Procrastination is not about time management but fear. 2.  Revelation: No one is thinking about you! 3.  Our physical problems are often the result of fear.  Visit Our Website: Buy Our Book: Check Out Our Course:

Episode 175: Are You Living in Scarcity or Abundance?
How do you see your world?  If life is a pie, do you believe if someone gets a piece there is less for you?  If so, you have a scarcity mentality.  Some signs of scarcity thinking are comparison, envy, hoarding, and victimhood.  However, abundance thinking is big, bold, and exciting.  This type of thinker believes there is plenty to go around, and it comes from a deep sense of personal worth. On today's episode, we help you shift from scarcity to abundance thinking.   Contact Us: Think About It:  Read 2 Corinthians 6:11-13 on small thinking.   Smallness comes from within. Are limiting beliefs keeping you in scarcity thinking?

Episode 174: Who Are You Following?
It's been said, "Tell me who you admire, and I'll tell you who you are."  It's so important to identify the influencers in our life because we become like those we admire.  Just look at what you give your attention to, that is what you value.  Who are you following?  Contact Us: Think About It: 1. In a 2007 study "Fame" became the number one quality to be admired. 2.  The Kardashians began in 2007. 3.  Don't lie to yourself.  Whatever you spend time doing is what you value.

Is there something dead in your life?  The same power that resurrected Jesus from the dead lives in you.  Isn't that incredible?  Jesus' death and resurrection purchased everything we would ever need.  He purchased our forgiveness, our healing, our prosperity, and our eternity.  If God would not even spare His own Son, what won't He do for you?   Contact us: Think About It: 1. God sees you as His righteousness. 2. We are more than conquerors, so pick up your spoils on your way out.  3. Tap into the power that resides in you.

Episode 172: Take Hold! Your Promise is at Hand!
Faith never fails!  Our willpower fails, and we allow fear and unbelief to derail us, but if you hold on ... Faith never fails.  Whatever you are believing for will come to pass if you will lock arms with two very powerful sisters, no not us, but sister "Faith" and sister "Patience."  These two bad mama jammas will build your grit, and endurance, and guide you along the right path.  Have we told you this only works if you don't give up? It's going to require some serious mental endurance.  So, if you'll find a scripture, dig in your heels, despite what your circumstances or body may be telling you, you will inherit your promise.  So, it's time to take hold?     Contact: Think About It:  1. Patience is cheerful expectation. 2. Patience develops inner strength. 3. Mental endurance is just like physical endurance.  You have to push against the resistance.

Episode 171: You Matter!!!
Are you feeling like your life doesn't matter?  Has rejection or failure heaped indescribable pain and shame on you?  We are here to tell you there is hope today.  This episode centers around the classic book written in 1985 by Robert McGee, The Search For Significance.  We are all on a search for significance.  Significance is the quality of being worthy, worthy of attention, and importance.  It imparts an Innate desire that our life should matter.   It does!  God has an audacious plan for you.  It's time to step into your significance because ... You Matter! Contact Us: Think About It:  1. Rejection communicates little value and low respect. 2. You are not your behavior.  That's what you do, but that is not who you are.   3. Your behavior changes when you change your identity.   The Search for Significance, Robert McGee, 1985

Episode 170: No Worries
Worry lives on a continuum, from a sense of dread to full-on panic attacks.  If you let it worry will steal your health, joy, and peace.  Worry looks to the past with regret, to the future with fear, and forgets to look at today. Remember this promise found in Jeremiah 29:11. "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."   Contact Us: Think About It: 1.  You are not irresponsible if you don't worry about your kids. 2.  Worry will not add one day to your life, but it might take off a few. 3.  Worry is a destructive pattern of thinking.

Episode 167: Find the Funny
Have you ever seen that classic picture of Jesus laughing?  His head is tilted back, and he is cracking up.  The power of laughter cannot be denied. Scripture says it's medicine.  Laughter has been proven to improve our physical, mental, and social health.  A belly laugh can burn 40 calories, improve your immune system, and boost your endorphins.  It's also a great way to bond with the people in your life, and a very cheap way to appear more attractive.  This week find the funny, and make laughter a part of your lifestyle.  Stay in Touch: Think About It:  Funny moments last forever.

Episode 143: Have You Been Duped?
Guess what?  Jesus didn't teach Critical Race Theory.  In fact, Galatians 3: 28 says, "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." We know "social justice" sounds Christian, but have you been duped?  On this episode of the Soul Gym, we discuss the divide in our country, the fight between good and evil, and how to stand up and fight.  Jesus is the creator of justice, but He ain't woke.   Stay in Touch: Mental Muscle: 1.

What words do you use to describe yourself?  When you're alone at night, what thoughts are running through your head?  On this episode of Soul Gym Sisters, we talk about how we can look at life through a love lens or a fear filter.  God designed us perfectly in His image, and we were created for love and to love, but sin entered the world.  Instead, we often filter the world through fear, worry, and anger.  God placed in each of us a desire to do something significant, but we will miss our destiny if we have ugly thoughts about ourselves.  We can't hate ourselves and love others.  Learn how to put on your love lens and attract good things into your life.

What does it mean to be a Christian?

The are energized, creative, and free.  They are the victors of their life.  We are always faced with a choice.  Make a decision to quit the "have to" or change your attitude.  Find what you're passionate about , tap into your God-given gifts, and live with an attitude of "want to."
