40 Days to Freedom

If you have hung out with me here for any amount of time you know I am a huge advocate of all types of fasts: Spiritual, Nutritional, Absolute, Intermitent….etc.

File Feb 14, 12 18 17 PM

For me it does not matter what type of fast I go into it is always taken into prayer…..and sometimes it is actually given to me through prayer and then me re-taking it into prayer so I can hear clearly what I am supposed to be doing.

But one of the biggies I usually do with a fast is I usually do not share with many people;  usually only 1 or 2 are brought into it.  And that is because it was spoken into me shortly after my huge transformation with fasting in the beginning.  God pressed it into my heart that all fasts forward were to remain private unless told otherwise.

Well here I am years later Him telling me loud and clear…..this one is too big for you….you need to be united with others….lots of others.

Why?

Because there is a HUGE DISCONNECT with who we are as people and in our healing.

There are sooo many hurting people turning to sooo many different types of addictions (drugs, alcohol, pornography, food, shopping, apathy, body…etc).   And why?  To avoid the work of healing.  And why?  Because healing is hard work!

Healing means you have to be willing to go THROUGH the pain….not around it.

Healing means you have to open your eyes to and bring to the front what you have been avoiding.

So on September 2-October 12, I will be entering into a fast that is intentional in praying for people who are struggling with addictions.

I think we probably ALL know someone who is burdened by addiction.  Who has been enslaved by the lies of its soothing denial of the truth.

I can’t do this alone.

So regardless if you enter into a fast or just add extra prayers during those 40 days….are you open to add the intentional prayers for those struggling with addictions?

When we CONNECT our prayers and spirits together we truly CAN move mountains!

Have an amazingly blessed day and labor day weekend!

My hugs and prayers are always with each and every one of you!

blessings,

Kelly 😉

Victorious Veteran’s

Every year our church celebrates Veteran’s day by asking those who have served to stand and be recognized and prayed over.

August 1992 I stepped on to a plane to enter a season of life that I had no idea would bring me to my hubby.

For 2 months I completed more push-ups, sit ups, running, marching, and bunk drills than I can possibly count….or even keep track of.

I will admit there were times in the past that I never really thought about what it meant to have served in the military.  To me it was a means to the end.  I had grown up in a very small town.  There were so many factors but the point being is I saw the military as truly the best option for me to be the best version of myself.

While I was in the Navy there were days I really hated it.  I wondered what was I thinking.  It was also a time in my life when I continued to received more sexual harassment than I care to count.  BUT…..there truly were amazing blessings that took place.

First, I met my husband.   Because of him I was able to vocalize my wounds, my rape, my abuses, and so much more.

When I met my husband I felt safe.  I finally felt like I could truly be 100% myself.

Boot camp alone was healing.  It had been that summer that the penetration rape had taken place.  For me boot camp was about “beating” the emotions out of me.  Or better yet stuffing it all in and becoming as tough as I could possibly be, therefore “I could never be hurt again!”

What I really learned from my service in the military was another way to be an intentional disciple!

When you serve in the military it is NOT about you……IT’S ABOUT THE GREATER GOOD!  You make sacrifices, you put your desires aside to do for others, you have days you really want to throw in the towel but you know others are depending on you so you stand up taller and dig deep to show up and be all you were made to be aka hopefully be the best version of yourself!

And most of all you truly learn what it means to do team work and to be a leader!!!

So today I am able to reflect on my military service with humbling pride.  I don’t reflect on it anymore as “ugh” or “oh yeah I did that….”  No today I reflect and am so very grateful for my years of service.  Years that formed my early adult years.  Years that taught me I was much stronger than I ever would have thought.  And years that introduced me to my amazing husband.

Today I am also reflecting on all the men and women who have made amazing sacrifices for their country.  Who have said yes to provide us the freedoms we sometimes don’t even thing about…..and no to so many of their own desires.

This week reflect on your own dreams….your own sacrifices…..your own ways you serve: your family, your community, your Lord!

Remember to pray, journal, tap, and oil up!!!

Many blessings….prayers….hugs…

For women, men, and children of human trafficking…..especially sex trafficking it’s the only thing they may have…..it is also the first thing they give up on.

I want to share with you the story of the hope oil and how it came about…

DOTERRA saw a way that their own non-profit entity, the HEALING HANDS FOUNDATION, could make an impact on this WAR….YES IT IS A WAR….on putting a stop to human trafficking.

They teamed up with Operation Underground Railroad (I will share links and info below to learn more)…..but they teamed up to provide not only one time funding, donations, but an ongoing resource of money to come in to support and provide for this fight….

Thus the HOPE OIL was born…..100% of the sales from this oil goes to rescuing others from human trafficking!  100%…..meaning doTerra takes care of ALL the overhead costs…admin….to ensure that 100% is going toward saving lives from this life of slavery….

SO……HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

Find out what it looks like in your community?

Connect with entities in your community…..for me it is a non-profit called KEY2FREE….

Find out how you can volunteer, donate, share your knowledge with others about these entities to help against this evil.

You can also purchase the HOPE OIL from me…..knowing that 100% of the purchase is saving lives.

All of this makes a difference.

AND…..Because I am so passionate about this topic…..to ensure these amazing women, men, children, are rescued and are loved on…..and are able to learn and know: THEY ARE ENOUGH, THEY ARE BEAUTIFULLY WONDERFULLY MADE, AND THAT THERE IS HOPE FOR THEM…..

 

I am committed FROM HERE ON OUT to purchasing a hope oil roller anytime someone STARTS UP WITH ME with a family essentials or home essentials kit……this is my way of adding hope and healing in your life…..and hope and healing to these amazing children of God.

You will still receive all the special welcome care and goods I provide to educate, coach and support you on your own hope and healing journey of health and wellness….

But you will also receive a HOPE OIL…..you will have the amazing feeling of knowing you are making a difference in someone else’s life…you are providing hope for these who need hope….

AND……you’ll be making an impact on your life and the lives of others.

Are you ready to bring hope to the world!?  To your state?  To your neighborhood? To your home!

For your FREE HOPE and helping stop the evil of human trafficking email me at KellyFrickConnect@gmail.com….

You have an amazing day…..I look forward to hearing from you…..together we WILL bring HOPE AND STOP THIS EVIL.

Here is my own video about HOPE:

Family {Focus}

I haven’t seen my parents since Christmas.  I will have the joy of having them come visit with us for the night.  They will join us for Mass tomorrow.  We will enjoy some amazing last memories in this amazing Amarillo home.  This home that has held gatherings, sleep overs, and fellowship of family and friends for over 10 years!

This is what we were made for: CommunityCOMMUNION!

I will take in today with great focus, with great care, with great love!  

Have you ever thought about TIME and FAMILY!?

We can buy so many things….we can earn so many things….we can increase so many things…..BUT TIME IS NOT ONE OF THEM!

We get only 24 hours in a day.  We can’t buy more, earn more, gain more.

Time is the one area in our life we MUST be mindful.

So the question is do we waste our time or use it wisely!?

How much time do you spend on social media versus time face to face with a friend or family?

How much sleep do you give yourself versus getting “one more thing” done?

How much time do you spend in front of the computer or TV versus playing games or going for walks with your kiddos?

Sit with this….pray about it…journal about it….share/connect with me about it!

Many hugs and blessings my dear followers…family…friends…
