About Us – The Grace and Strength Lifestyle
The Grace & Strength Lifestyle
I founded the Grace and Strength Lifestyle a little over five years ago after seeing a need in our local church for a balanced and Christian approach to weight loss for women. Women especially are bombarded on all sides by the world’s ideals of what we should be, how we should look, and the ways we should reach those goals. Unfortunately, this destroys self-confidence and entirely devalues a woman’s self-worth when she doesn’t measure up. Even when she does, there are often greater challenges she faces once there because of even deeper issues that haven’t been addressed.
I quickly discovered that the need was much greater and much more widespread than anything I could have imagined. Since that time, our team has grown, we’ve added more dynamic coaches, and we’ve seen the lives of women around the world affected in a life-changing and positive way through this program.
It is my heart and passion, as well as that of our team to see women find wholeness, health, and freedom in every area of their lives. The stories of those who finish the program are often saturated with those very sentiments. Frequently, we hear our graduates say, “I came to Grace and Strength to just lose weight, but what I received was SO MUCH MORE!”
Today, as you browse this site, watch the videos, listen to the stories of real clients – just like you, my prayer is that if you feel the gentle tug of the Holy Spirit challenging you to take this leap of faith, please take that first step by contacting us for a free consultation. I believe that Christ is the answer to change, and our team is here to help facilitate those changes in YOUR life. Will you take that step today? *

A Christian Weight Loss and Total Health Program
These are important, but they are just the beginning of a balanced approach to healthy living. The Grace and Strength Lifestyle focuses on a Biblical approach to nutrition – eating more of the foods that God has given us in their most natural and unaltered forms.
We then incorporate balanced and progressive challenges to your body that not only accelerate your weight loss, but also produce increased energy, focus, strength, determination, and much much more.
Our goal is to set you on a path, a ‘Lifestyle’ if you will, that is balanced and sustainable!
- Our Mind (the thought patterns that we use to evaluate information)
- Our Will (our desires and our intentions that drive our actions)
- Our Emotions (the feelings that saturate all that we experience and often override what our mind or our will would rather do)
Through coaching, group discussion, self evaluation, and journaling, we go deep in this area and often uncover the actual roots of our struggles with weight – which more often than not, are much more significant than simply knowing what to eat and what not to eat.
“And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9
What we have learned, is that all of us have weaknesses. For many of us, those weaknesses show up in the form of unwanted weight. As we continually learn to surrender our own weaknesses to the Lord, we find that His strength is not only enough, but it is more than enough. We aren’t just conquerors in Christ, we are super conquerors!
The Grace and Strength Lifestyle has assembled a team of incredibly dynamic coaches who have all experienced their own struggle and eventual victory over obesity. They have a heart and passion for seeing you reach that same place of freedom!
In your weekly online meetings, you’ll also be introduced and become a part of your very own peer group. This group is a private place where you’ll walk along side other like-minded women who are traveling the same journey that you are. Many clients discover life-long friendships in these groups as they face this battle – together!

Most diet plans focus exclusively on your body and neglect the more significant components of your being. We are different!
