Thanks for joining me on this journey.
“The thief (Satan) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
That is my life verse. It was given to me when I was baptized as a baby and has been spoken over my life time and time again.
I grew up in a loving Christian home. I have loved Jesus since I can remember. Yet at the same time, I have always struggled with anxiety.
When I was 18, my liver suddenly failed and I ended up in a coma. I had an emergency transplant and woke up to a whole new life.
As I was processing my new life, a friend said a few words that changed everything. The Jesus that I knew and loved my whole life no longer made sense. He felt distant and confusing.
I didn’t grieve my losses well and paid for it emotionally.
Over the years, the thief (Satan) has worked overtime for my soul.
Two year ago I celebrated the 18 year anniversary of my Liver Transplant. It felt significant to me that I lived as long with my new liver as my old one.
Something shifted in my spirit around that time. I began to exchange my anxiety and grief with contentment and joy. I started to experience more of who God is and what I have access to through his spirit. I started to rise up above my trauma and fear and become more the person God intended for me.
I began to experience more of the full life God intended for me all along.
I started this blog because I want to invite you to join me as I seek to experience more of God and become the fullness of who he has created me to be.
I have found that in order to experience the full life God was referring to in John 10:10, we need to prioritize our physical, emotional and spiritual health.
I have spent over 10 years in the fitness industry as a personal trainer. I have come to believe that unless we take care of our bodies, we can’t walk out the fullness of God’s calling on our life. On this site I will offer tips and resources in hopes to inspire you to make healthy decisions.
I have struggled to rise above anxiety and trauma my whole adult life. I have to be intentional to stay emotionally healthy. I will share tools that have helped, or are helping me, on my journey towards emotional well-being.
I have followed Jesus my whole life, but over the last several years I have grown more spiritually than I have the previous 30. I still have a lot to learn, but my desire is that this blog can be a place where we can grow in our faith together.
So where ever you are at in your journey towards the full life God intended for you, join me here and let’s live for more.
I would love to hear from you! Email me at: Lisdschmidt@gmail.com
Living for more,
