How many times have you heard it? "Just try harder!" It's only three little words, but wow are they loaded! Sometimes, that's a good thing. There are times that we need the gentle nudge to come alongside of us and encourage our forward progress. Hey, sometimes we even need a full on boot in the hindquarters to motivate us to use the strength that is lying dormant within us.
Rebecca's Story: I started this journey with Grace and Strength feeling beat by the world. I was overwhelmed with the feeling of being a failure and not knowing what my purpose in this world was a part from serving my God. Prior to starting Grace and Strength I had been led to start honoring God with my food and making my temple/body more pleasing to God.

After inquiring and talking to her and another gal from Grace and Strength, I was really not sure this was something I would do.... What I could not figure out was WHY this program worked.
