Spark Faith Weaving faith, health, and our imperfect selves to become our best for God's purposes

By Kris Sargent
Have you ever felt like your inside self is different than your outside self? Do you look at others and think they must have it all together and what’s wrong with me? This podcast is where women can admit they don’t have it all figured out, and mash up conversations about faith, wellness, work, family and anything else that might spill out.
I have a unique take on faith and health. As a physician, I have practiced alternative medicine for almost 30 years. I understand how faith can be woven through our lives to create a healthy body, mind and spirit, so that we can live out God's purpose.

Julie Landi believes inside every one of you lies a unique set of strengths, values, and passions, and if you take the time to discover, develop and deploy them, you will make the world a better place. During our conversation we took a deep dive into where the "messes" in our lives intersect with God's purposes, her  journey of helping women find their vision for their life, and the one area in her own life where she doesn't have it all figured out.

I'm having conversations with some amazing women who are ready to admit they don't have it all figured out.

My 2020 Transformation More than Good Enough
Self sabotage, not good enough, workaholic, perfectionistic and emotionally shut down. Not that long ago, those are the words that I would use to describe myself. Most people would never believe that as I am generally a happy, optimistic person when you meet me, however, the inside and the outside didn't match. There was a pivotal moment when I realized I needed to change. Here's a piece of the story of how my insides and outside now match. I really believe we don't have time to waste racing through life. And, that our spark and authenticity for life glows when we take control of our health. I help women match their inside and outside so that you can have the body, mind and faith you crave and be, do and have the life you desire.  If you would like to see what's it's like to work with me - copy and paste the link below for a FREE 30 minute Explore call. https://drkrissargent.as.me/ExploreCall
