Here are some pictures from the Dance-Fit Workout Like A Dancer class and Power Barre!  What a huge success to see women from all walks of life come out, work out, have a great time, and invest in their health and wellness.  I LOVE my job!!!  The best part about  this event is that we were able to accept donated canned goods to support the Capital of Texas Food Bank!  Working out for a cause!!! Yeah:)))

Don’t Stop Dreaming!!!

Have you ever gone after something in your life that both scared you and excited you at the same time!?  I hosted my first real live workshop in Austin, Tx! We were sold out in two days and I had to add seats because people were interested in joining.  I’m so blown away and so shocked!  It was such a bonding experience and we had so much fun growing together and learning how to be authentic and live an audacious life!  I’m planning for our next retreat in January 2014.  I hope you can join us!!!

 

Here’s a little sneak peak of what some of our workshop participants have to say….

“I appreciated the honesty, safe place of no judgement, and just finding peace and calmness.  I learned tools on how to be vulnerable and dig deep with God and myself.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“The ability to have a “safe” place to share my deepest fears.  I can now see the things that hindered me from being vulnerable.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“I really loved our breakout sessions.  I got to connect and share with others and I felt heard.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“I really felt like I could be open, free, no judgement.  I really enjoyed the yoga portion and the guided meditation.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“For myself, I really enjoyed getting to know all these ladies and talk in our most raw state.  I liked the guided questions and being able to be completely honest.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“I was really impressed by Judy’s example of vulnerability and listening to people in the group and answer questions.  Everything was great through the lessons, food, positive atmosphere, etc.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“Thank you Judy for an amazing workshop today! It was incredibly moving and made me dig deep and really think. I loved it. The yoga was the icing on the cake! Kicked my butt!”
Kelly F.

“Thank you so much for this amazing workshop! I was inspired by all the beautiful women and blessed to have shared this amazing time. I look forward to the next one! …oh, the Yoga…yes, the Yoga…lova ya!”
Sam K.

“Amazing workshop. Judy created a safe and loving environment and we all got to dig deep into our hearts and see what stops us from living an Audacious Life. Doing yoga for the last portion was so incredible- a true mind, body and soul experience! Thank you Judy, great job!”
Vicki H.

“Judy your life and loving heart are so inspiring! The Journey to Wholeness Workshop is a wonderful event filled with wisdom for the heart, soul, body and mind. Love you bunches!”
Paula S.

 

 

I’m so proud of these women and the courage they had to share their lives!  Thank you all for being in this journey with me.  Let’s continue to grow and build each other up.

Happy Anniversary to Me:)

Yesterday, Erik and I celebrated seventeen years of marriage.  That’s seventeen years in a row people!!! LOL!  In this day and age, that’s quite an accomplishment.  I’m so grateful for all the well wishes and encouragement from friends and family.   A lot of people mentioned how “lucky” we were.  I’m definitely thankful and do feel extremely lucky but seriously, marriage has nothing to do about luck.

 

Our marriage has gone through many seasons.  Some tsunamis, earthquakes, category 4 hurricanes, and have lived to tell about it.  Being on social media, people only see the “highlight reel” as Steven Furtick calls it.  Our “behind the scenes” are messy, sad, and sometimes beyond repair.  We have almost broken up a few times.  The most serious incident was when I was eight months pregnant with my second child, Emma and Jacob was just one years old.  It was a dark time and a tough season.  We had to work hard to build trust and repair our relationship.  Sometimes, things happen to tear our marriage down so it could be built up the right way.  Without God and without people to help us along the way, we would be nothing but a statistic shuffling kids around every weekend.

There were stormy seasons for sure.  There were days that we couldn’t bear but promised to just take it one breath at a time.  Trusting.  Hoping.  Believing that miracles could happen.

I guess the most important lesson for me was to learn to sweep my own side of the street.  There were always things I could be critical about but man, I had enough crap on my side of the street to last a lifetime.  Once I started really dealing with me, life got better.  My perspective changed and we started to have harmony again in the marriage.  I know that Erik did the same thing.  Personal development is an important tool to grow in your relationships.  Some people think that wit, charm, and beauty is all you need to keep the relationship vibrant.  Sorry to burst your bubble but those things don’t last.  They are cute for about the first few months but then you need substance.  You need depth.  It takes vulnerability to take your relationship to another level.  Sometimes, we don’t go there simply because we don’t know how.  We don’t have the tools.  I’m so grateful to have created a curriculum that we will be using at our weekend retreat workshops to help women how to live authentically and love wholeheartedly.  Erik and I are in such a different place today in our marriage.  We absolutely have our bad moments but there’s a complete joy, respect, admiration, and deep love for one another that had to come from sufferings.  We didn’t like it at the time but now we are stronger, wiser, and more grateful for what we have.  I hope you’ll join me for our next workshop.  Learn how to live your most authentic life now!!!
