What I believe
I believe we have to accept and own who we are in Christ and allow the word of God to shape and mold our identity and not accept the world’s opinion of who we are.
I believe we can do all things through Christ who is our strength (Philippians 4:13). I believe that we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us (Romans 8:37).
I believe that we have to give ourselves permission to win, to look good and to feel good, and see in ourselves what God sees in us.
I believe that not everything belongs in our future. That some things need to be left behind, so we can become all that God has called us to be.
How I can help you
Healthy Living With Annie emerged from my struggles with food, and passion for seeing others developing a healthy lifestyle. I want to help people get on the path to healthy living.
My books and The Redesign Your Image Plan all came out of my personal experience, as I sought to achieve a better lifestyle, spirit, soul, and body.
I have spent many years walking this out in my own life and am committed to helping you learn how to develop strategies and tools to overcome life-controlling issues.
The Healthy Living With Annie Program will help you grow up in all things in Christ and learn how to work through barriers to change while creating a sustainable healthy lifestyle.
Many years ago, I was talking to a dear friend of mine about purpose. She knew her purpose in life and was so sure that I knew mine as well. But I was not so sure of that. So I prayed about it. After much prayer, I heard this small still voice saying Teach, write, and intercede.
There it was! I knew my purpose, but instead of making myself available to walk in it, I spent many years pursuing other things that had nothing to do with my calling. Other things had my attention and held my affection.
It was not until after the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said Nuts, grains, fruits, and vegetables, that I began to deal with my unhealthy lifestyle. One thing that became clear to me on my journey was that it was more than about food.
I knew I had to surrender my unhealthy lifestyle to God so that He could help me get closer to Him and get the strength to be transformed to walk in my purpose. I had to get help in learning how to remove the distractions and deal with the barriers to my changing.
Sometimes, long-standing, unproductive habits are just too hard for us to overcome alone. Sometimes we need a friend to walk with us. That friend for me was Jesus Christ, in the person of the Holy Spirit. Out of my relationship with Him, came the empowerment to deal with my struggles and overcome in that area of my life.
I had to learn how to break habits and allow myself to win. The biggest obstacle for me was in renewing my mind, changing my mindset so that I could develop a healthy relationship with food.
I learned so many things on my journey that I want to share with you so that you too can learn how to walk in your purpose.
