"I was a really really good dieter, I could stay on a plan and loose weight, but I could never keep it off. Because I had this mindset that once I got the weight off, then I could go back to the way I used to eat."
Confidence vs Body Love | Mendy Shriver
I know that my strength, my worth, my everything, comes from my confidence in Christ. Webster’s definition of confidence says it arises from circumstances. When I think of the most confident times in my life, they were based on circumstance. When I think about confidence in Christ, it’s not based on circumstance. When I think on love, love is not based on circumstances. If I relied on my circumstances to have confidence, I would never have confidence.
Doing it Afraid | Mendy Shriver
When God calls us to do something, it rarely looks like the way other people are doing it! What has God called you to do that felt uncomfortable? For me it was making God the center of my fitness business instead of just sprinkling Him on. It's been a huge stretch for me to do things differently than the way most do it, but NOTHING feels as rewarding as walking in God's unique calling for me. I want this for you too! What is God calling you to that you need to take the leap and do?
Resist the Either Or Mentality | Mendy Shriver
You are more than happy or sad, you are more than the life of the party or the party pooper, you are more than a democrat or republican, you are more than just a mother or a father, you are more than all of those things. We are beautiful and messy all at the same time, because that is the creativity of our God. He is not a two party system or a two emotion God, he gave us a lot more to work with. Allow yourself to not be boxed in and live in an either or mentality.

The Secret For Women Who Want To Stop Doing It All | Mendy Shriver
I had a no excuses mentality and I did well. There was never any room for, I feel like crap and I need to sleep for two days and recover and watch Netflix. That is the American mentality, and it became my mentality, and I’m wondering if it’s snuck in and become your mentality too, and ruined you? It’s kind of ruined me.
