Day 11- EMBODIMENT. Do our bodies have significance? St. Paul this weekend in Philippians ch. 3 said “He will change our lowly body to conform with his glorified body”. What does that mean? How do I view my body? Let’s unpack that this week!
Day of Rest 2: “This is my chosen son, listen to him.” The Gospel of the Transfiguration is today and these are the words God the Father shares about His Son! Let them wash over you today because YOU are His “chosen daughter”!
Saturday Spotlight with Angel: she shares how being diagnosed with a heart condition as a college rower changed her view of her identity. So FIERCE!
“Ultimately, my advice for you is to endure that path, as hard as it may be, and to know that it’s worth it in the end and it’s going to bring you closer to who the Lord has beautifully and uniquely created us to be.”
Day 9- IDENTITY. Our deepest Identity is as Beloved Daughters of God- we are loved as we are! But how we look is unique and we need to embrace that. Also our gifts and talents have been given to us and are important. They need to be offered back to God! You are uniquely YOU!
Day 8- IDENTITY. The word Identity comes from the root word “idem” which means “same”. So what’s the same about all of us? Scripture says in Gen 1:27 we are made in the image and likeness of God. It also says in 2 Cor 6:18 that we are God’s sons and daughters. THATS IT! We are God’s beloved daughters!
Day 7: IDENTITY. We are not reduced to what we look like. How we look is unique and beautiful but our worth is not based off of it. We are body and soul and have to go deeper. Reducing our worth to appearance makes us think that only if we look a certain way will we be loveable. That is not true! You are loved because you were created uniquely and preciously by God!
Day 6- IDENTITY. We often base our identity off what we do. While what we do is amazing and makes us unique- if we base our worth solely off of what “we do” then we believe we have to earn love. We are only lovable if we “do” a certain thing, or win a race, or find success. This isn’t true. We are loved by the fact we are created. We are loved for who we are by God. .
Day 5: IDENTITY. Who am I?! Do you ever ask yourself this question? For so many years I identified myself as “Athlete” but when I got hurt for 13 months I didn’t know who I was anymore. So let’s talk through this! Who are you?! What do you identify with?
Day of Rest! Happy Sunday! Like Jesus in today’s Gospel, we are called to resist temptation. This is why we are making goals this Lent and sticking to them- we are learning to resist the temptation to quit, give in, and give up.
Day 4: Saturday Spotlight! Figured I’d introduce myself since I am with you all Lent! My name is Sam Kelley and I’m the founder of FIERCE Athlete. So great to be with you all- you inspire me! Thanks for journeying with me this Lent!
Day 3! Happy Friday! By the fact you were created a woman you are feminine! Embrace that truth today. Enjoy your Friday- remember no meat!
Day 2! Let’s start talking about the “F” in FIERCE- Femininity! What does it mean to be a faithful athletic woman?! We will unpack this all Lent but start gathering your own ideas!
Day 1- Ash Wednesday!!! Let’s start Lent off right- get to mass and follow it with your workout, nutritional and spiritual goals! Also every day this Lent offer your workout up for a different person or intention- it’s about more than just you! Track your goals and offerings in our journal- link in bio for free download!
Here is how the challenge is going to work! Join us! Invite a friend!!! So pumped to start!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I hope you all have a blessed day celebrating with your family and friends! We have much to rejoice about! Thank you for joining us for our Advent Challenge- we loved being on this journey with you! See you soon!
Day 23. Merry Christmas Eve! Just as Christ prepares to offer himself to us this Christmas, so too do we need to offer back the dreams, talents and calls He’s given us! They make the perfect Christmas gift to Him 🎁!
Day 22! Answering God’s Call! It’s time to say yes like Mary! And to do so not begrudgingly, but with excitement and anticipation! Fiat!
“Mary’s dreams were completely upended and upturned and fulfilled in the gift of allowing God to lead her in ways that were unexpected.” Let’s get ready to utter our Fiats with hers! Say Yes! Thanks Kathryn!!!
Day 20. How do we practically discern God’s Dream for our life!? Part 2.3. What is our greatest wound and healing and how can we use that to help others heal? 4. What is a gift that has died or you haven’t used in a while- can you resurrect it? 5. The kingdom of God belongs to the childlike. Revisit your childhood dreams!
Day 19. How do we practically discern God’s Dream for our life!? 1. We simply Ask Him! 2. We get in touch with our desires and ask Him to work through those!
