Episode 035: Your Spirit → Body Connection

God was no fool when He knit you together in your mother's womb. He has intricately designed your being to encompass mental, spiritual and physical housing. The condition of your spirit and mind has direct effects, positively and negatively, on your physical body. I had experienced this very clearly as of late, so it comes as no surprise that God wants to use that to speak a clear message to you today. This is the final episode in Season 1 of the Healthy Christian Women podcast and I've...


Episode 034: Can I Be Honest?

I've gotta confession. And I'm not sure if you're ready for it, but if you're thinking I'm 'perfect' and 'have it all together', Sister, you're wrong! *Caution: Listening may cause you to want to unsubscribe and think I'm not a worthy leader to follow, so listen at your own risk.* But the Bible encourages us, "Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working." ~James 5:16 so...


Episode 033: The Disciplined Disciple

"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." Hebrews 12:11 It is through self-discipline and God's loving discipline that we cultivate a life that is thriving spiritually, mentally and physically. Your life is a product of your habits. Let's build the discipline it takes to create habits that lead to healthy, vibrant and joyful life. ~Dr. Melody P.S. Grab your detox...


Episode 032: Making Peace ≠ Giving Up

In order to fully create lasting changes in your health you must get to a place of peace. Without peace you're stuck with dictatorship and constant degradation of your value, worth and character. Lasting change cannot come from a place of discord, as that is only temporary and fleeting as a motivator. The real motivation comes from within, finding your value and worth in Christ, not in your jean size. But don't worry. Making peace with yourself, God and your health journey DOES NOT mean...


Episode 031: Trusting God With Your Health

"Come to me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 Are we truly trusting God with our health, or continuing the rat race of striving, pushing, restricting, punishing, defeating ourselves? That's not how God intended for you to go through life. It's time to trust Him. In all things. Including your health and body. ~Dr. Melody P.S. Grab your 7 Day Detox Checklist here: P.P.S.

Episode 030: Why Mommy Doesn't Need Wine

In this interview episode Kristen Ekiss shares her story of what started as a 'drink to relax' turned into a nightly habit that was soon hard to break. Wine had begun to soothe her emotionally and physically and instead of turning to God, she was seeking comfort in the glass. Kristen candidly shares her story of how her kids began to notice and what can seem nonchalant and laughable on the outside, can actually be a symptom of a much deeper need and cry for help and coping mechanism for...


Episode 029: Chaos to Clarity

In this special guest episode, Jenn Baxter shares how she went from struggling with Adrenal Fatigue to decluttering and downsizing her life altogether on an all-encompassing health journey that culminated in transitioning to a simpler, stress-free lifestyle, living in a Tiny home.

Episode 028: Where Did My Discipline Go?

Discipline can often feel fleeting, can't it? We 'do good' for awhile, then something happens and we're off track and have a hard time getting back on. So what gives? Where did my discipline go? In this episode we'll turn to God's Word about Discipline to find wisdom in the scriptures and the answers when we're feeling stuck, unmotivated and overwhelmed. ~Dr. Melody P.S.

Episode 027: Reversing Unrest

We battle the feeling of unrest by turning first to God. The feeling of anxiety/worry/unrest can sabotage our health because we want to get rid of these feelings as fast as possible, but that's no longer the acceptable coping mechanism. We need to peace of the Lord to soothe our soul. In this episode I share a seemingly random incident that happened while parking my car, and the flood of memories and emotions that came up, revealing the unrest I've held in my heart for over 15 years about...


Episode 026: Using Your Struggle for Good

What the Enemy has meant for harm, God is working for your good! And He's desiring that through Him you will use your struggle as a lifelong testimony of His goodness, grace, mercy, transformation and deliverance. Our health journey may have started as a personal and selfish pursuit, but God is desiring bigger things, and more people, to be impacted by your story and testimony throughout the process. ~Dr. Melody P.S.

Episode 025 - Your Brain on Sugar

Ever wonder WHY it's so hard to break free from sugar? Why it's so hard to fight off those late night or mid-afternoon cravings? Well, there's actually an explanation of what's going on inside your brain chemistry. In this episode we take the complex brain systems and make them simple and understandable so you can know what is going on inside your blood, brain and cells, so you are better equipped to fight the good fight of breaking free from the addictive clutch of sugar. ~Dr....


Episode 024: Managing a Lifestyle of Change

Changes in life can really throw us for a loop: mentally, spiritually and physically. Often times we use change as an excuse to 'let ourselves go' or the disruption of new circumstances literally makes us have to start over and rethink our schedule, habits and priorities. In this podcast interview with Adrianne Harris of Blessed Events NY, Adrianne shares with us timeless truths on how to keep God first amidst a lifestyle of change. No matter what season you're in, you've either...


Episode 023: Eating with the King

In this episode I get the pleasure to interview Terri Rockwell, author of the Eating with the King 40 Day Devotional. Written and inspired through the Holy Spirit, she shares daily scripture and reflections on her own relationship with food and health and helps us surrender our lives fully to Jesus, one bite at a time. We did a Facebook live interactive interview being able to invite women who have been touched by her book to share their stories of reflection and deliverance. Enjoy! ~Dr....


Episode 022: Pleasing People or God?

In our culture where physical appearance is 'king' and status in the eyes of others trumps just about everything, we can find ourselves lost and frustrated with wrong motivations and pressures on our image. So I ask you, are you trying to please people or God? Especially when it comes to your physical appearance or the motivation behind your outward looks. Let's turn to God's word, our guidebook for life, and see what it has to say. This will help us recalibrate 'our way' to 'God's way' --...


Episode 021 - Allowing Your Transformation

It can get so frustrating when the changes you're desiring are just not showing up! 'What's the deal, God?!' we ask. Let's go to God's word and see what He has to say about this. Let's find out what we CAN do to usher in and allow our transformation to take place - both on the outside and in. God's word makes it very clear. ~Dr. Melody P.S. Grab your 7 Day Detox here: P.P.S.

If you're searching for true health - inside and out - it will not happen outside of Connection. Connection with God, yourself, His church, other people. We were created for connection. Let's step into the fullness of life and health the way God always intended. ~Dr. Melody P.S. Grab your 7 Day Mind, Body, Spirit Detox Checklist here: P.P.S.

Episode 019 - Perfectionism

One of the biggest things that can rob us our of future is the vice of Perfectionism. The voice that tells us 'it's not good enough' or 'you're not good enough' or 'you need to know everything before you move forward'. It's not that being knowledgeable is a bad thing, but when it gets to the point where you're stuck in analysis paralysis or overly consumed with something being perfect before you take the next step, you're literally delaying your future and all the good things God has waiting...


Episode 018 - Dispelling the Lies, Walking in Truth

We've been so programmed to follow society and fall into the ways of the world that we can begin believing that certain lies are actually truth. But as Christians, the Bible should be our Standard. God is supposed to be our ONLY one true god. But closer examination of our time, attention and habits reveals that food, tv, social media, other's opinions, work, family etc. have taken the number one place in our heart. Over our Creator and His plans, His Word, His ways. Let's identify and...
