Being that we are under a renovation at the ark, there really wasn’t anywhere to host a Christmas for the folks out there. I had an idea that not only would be a great place to gather for Christmas dinner but also to enjoy for many gatherings throughout the year. I really wanted to have a sanctuary in general on the property. I just love tipis and needed a good excuse to get one. Being that Christmas is my favourite time of year, I thought it would be perfect. I just love the tipi for its gathering ability, its warmth, its comfort and its fashion in general. Plus, who wouldn’t want to enjoy a winter adventure in a tipi?
This year is not like the rest
For the last decade or more I have spent the Christmas season organizing Christmas get togethers, dressing up for parties, shopping for gifts and spending countless hours baking, all trying to maintain some sort of balance and sanity. You probably know the feeling but this year is just different.
Usually at this time of year I tell you where to get the greatest presents and I suppose I could do a little of that at the end of this post, especially if you were thinking of getting me a gift…lol, Jk. But seriously, I have no real desire this year for any presents other than maybe your actual presence. I am spending my Christmas season out at Noah’s Ark and plan on having a few fires under the stars. I’m hoping to get a tipi delivered in time for Christmas to have the first annual Tipi Christmas Celebration because if you know me you know that this is my very favourite holiday and I just can’t resist trying to bring folks together. You know, the usual Christmas festivities but just a little more out-doorsie.
This year I am wrapping up another year of healing and there is something about being in nature that helps the process seem quicker and more enjoyable in general. I am ever so grateful God gave me this unique opportunity to spend so much time in his natural elements for my healing journey post accident. I thought it only fitting to celebrate Christmas in one of the most beautiful places I know and invite you to join me. Everything about this December is all so serendipitous.
It’s happening, we are rising this year and taking the steps to our greatest potential.
You’ve been invited…
May showers bring June Flowers but getting booked for summer adventures time starts now………..
This program touches on the aspects of the fit life that include sharing your journey with family, friends and those around you in a loving and exciting way.
There is an ongoing self-reflection when it comes to those who strive for excellence. Finding balance in all things is the key to long term success.
Many fitness programs focus on exercise and diet alone but this program focuses on how to stay motivated while making your life about others. When you realize how needed you are and how inspiring others is the ultimate motivation, you will never see taking care of yourself the same way. Being surrounded with love is about creating a loving and healthy environment. Taking care of yourself is the first step in loving others.
Having a Fit Soul is all about how to create and maintain a healthy life for yourself and those you care about. Do it for them and reap the benefits of a long happy and healthy life.
It was a perfect weekend to getaway and RESET. We are the RESET RETREAT team. With everything going on in the world today, aligning yourself with likeminded faith filled people is so important. We came together to refresh, to relax and to press into our faith with prayer for each other and our nations. After two years of the isolating rules and restrictions we are done and ready to bring people together again.
We are headed out for the first RESET Retreat of 2022 this weekend.
The next Mountain Health and Wellness Retreat is set for March so if you are interested or just want to know more about the theme or activities, feel free to join my newsletter or contact me directly and I’ll send you some details.
I started these retreats for an alternative to yoga retreats for Christian women. We will be doing our stretches and morning prayers and meditations with our Bibles and Jesus. We will be enjoying connection with each other over healthy meals and some fun outdoor activities. There will be time for some photos, and just rest and journalling time. My hope is to send everyone home feeling renewed and refreshed.
The ladies and I will be joining hands to pray for our country and the liberation of the people. I am beyond excited to share some of the beauty of the mountains and some pictures with you after the weekend.
Subscribe to my newsletter for more details on our next retreat.
Keep your eyes on the blue skies ahead
We are nervous, hopeful, scared and passionate all at the same time. How do we keep believing and moving forward?
RESET Roundup 2021.
This summer was all about RESETTING. For me that meant getting back to the basics, cleansing and realigning myself with God and nature. I spent a lot of time in reflection and in prayer. I spent a lot of my time with the good book and this is what I know now…..
