Monday night's webcast was a little hard to watch. What I mean by that is that the audio and video were out of sync. However, it was still chock full of information. One thing I loved is that someone shared they had put their "go-to" scripts on a notecard spiral to keep with them everywhere they went. The reason I love that they shared that idea is because just a few days ago, when reviewing my SSMT scriptures on my SSMT Spiral, I thought about doing the same thing! I just have to wait for payday to buy the spiral. I even thought I might just order another Siesta spiral to use for my go-to scriptures - what do you think about that idea?

So here are the scriptures and the notes that I got from Monday night's webcast. So far, I don't think anyone else is sharing anything - I sure wish y'all would jump in and share what you gleaned from each webcast. You never know - you may have picked up on something that I or others didn't and by sharing we can all get even more out of it. Anyway - on with mine......

Scriptures: Genesis 3:6 / I John 2:15-16 / Psalm 107: 18-20 / Psalm 90:14
The first thing that jumped out at me (and several others from the way it was 'tweeted') is this: TEMPTATION IS SATAN'S INVITATION TO GET OUR NEEDS MET HIS WAY INSTEAD OF GOD'S WAY. Whether it is food or anything else.

Make PEACE your ultimate weight loss goal - NOT being thin. Remember, NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS PEACE FEELS. (Romans 14:19-20)

Another line that I liked from Monday night's webcast is this: LAZY IS A LIE! There's more that goes with that but Twitter is having a technical issue right now and I can't get to it :(  I will share it as soon as I can get to it to see it.

Lysa also shared many blog links that she encouraged everyone to check out. You can find them by going to and then click on the Media tab.

If you have problems finding it, just let me know and I'll be glad to help any way I can.

Guess I should mention that the other thing discussed was exercise. Find something you like to do and do it - the best exercise for you is something you will do :)

So, I'm sure I missed a lot of other good things, too, but maybe you caught something that I missed. If you would be so kind as to share it here with us, it would be appreciated ever so much.

Thank y'all :)

WOW! Once again, I got so much out of the webcast! And then again, there was plenty I didn't get - couldn't get all the websites written down! LOL

Lysa shared the scripture from I Thessalonians 5:16-18 - "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." (NIV)

Being in the center of God's will is to be a woman of joy, prayer and thanksgiving. Focus on God! CHOOSE to be a woman of joy. Thanksgiving moves the heart of God.

Lysa's special guest Monday night was her very own pastor, Steven Furtick (author of Sun Stand Still and if you haven't read that book, it is GREAT!) He shared many things and the one thing that really struck me was this: He stated that God said, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased" speaking about Jesus BEFORE Jesus ever performed one miracle! Jesus KNEW His identity. Knowing our identity MUST come before our activity. (To get a better grasp on this, you can read Lysa's blog at Scroll down to Tuesday, Jan. 18 and read what she wrote about it there.)

I probably didn't get that exactly like Pastor Furtick said it, but maybe you get the meaning anyway. Here are some other things that I jotted down as he was speaking:

I can never let God down because I was never holding Him up in the first place.

I have to reformat my mind. I have to begin using the "find and replace" function. The first sin was the sin of insecurity. The way Adam and Eve hid (or thought they hid) from the Father as if to say "If I pretend I don't have a problem then it's not a problem, right? Insecurity is an insult to God. When the enemy is trying to tell me lies, I MUST replace them with the truth of His Word.

The beginning of a breakthrough is DESIRE. Not MY desire to do it for me and not desire from within myself but a Holy Spirit Empowered Determination that nothing can stop!

Dr. Chilton shared about several different things and I couldn't get them all down. However, there is a website you can go to and download a free chart. Just go to (Hopefully you can just click on that link and go straight to where it says for you to download it.) If not, then go to, scroll down to where you see it says "Welcome Made to Crave Webcast Viewers" and you will see where it says to Click here for your FREE Gene Smart Go Guide. If you want this guide but you don't have access to a printer, just let me know and I'll be glad to print you a copy.

There were several sites listed as recommended for checking out but the only one I got written down was I am going to check her book and see if the websites are listed there and I'll let you know.

I hope you are all having a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing everyone again this Monday night. Feel free to come as early as 6:30, if you'd like. I don't mind at all. And, if you can't get there early or even by 7, just come when you can - it's all good :)

Love you all and PLEASE feel free to comment and share what you got from the webcast Monday night.

WOW! Were you able to tune in and see the webcast? We were and we really enjoyed it. So much information. I will share with you some of my notes and I'd love to hear what some of you got from it. Also, if you don't get to watch on a Monday night for some reason or even if you just want to see it again, they are taping each show and will re-air it the following Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. CST AND 2:00 p.m. CST on the Made to Crave website -

I really enjoyed tonight's devotional called "A Grace Place". God doesn't run out of grace. Even on days when I might make an "unhealthy" choice, I just need to move on and not think that I've "blown it". Take EACH healthy choice as a victory and let all the individual choices begin to add up.

One phrase that stood out to me was "You have a physical indication of a spiritual situation". This was not meant necessarily just for someone that might be overweight, but even someone that is at their normal weight but having health issues, as well. At least, that's the way I understood it - let me know if I got that wrong.

I also liked that she shared the word SEEK comes from the word, Zeteo, which means "to crave". So when the scripture tells us to SEEK God it is telling us to CRAVE God!

I loved when her guest, Kathrine Lee, made the statement that she is on the journey this time "BECAUSE I am loved not so I CAN BE loved". I like that she shared that she had lost 175 pounds and kept it off for six years only to gain it back when she went through some emotional 'stuff'. I really identified with that because, even though I'd only lost 54 pounds, I also gained almost all that back when going through emotional 'stuff'. It made me ask myself why am I really doing this? What do I REALLY want to accomplish - long term? My answer to that is that I DO want to get healthy and, hey, if I can get closer to God at the same time then that's even better!

One thing we need to always remember is this: A SETBACK IS A SET UP FOR A COMEBACK!

I am so glad to have the FREEDOM to do this. I know I have a lot of choices ahead of me and I have a lot to learn about choosing healthy - but I'm ready for it. I will pray for each of you and ask that you also pray for me that God will give us each the wisdom and knowledge we need to make the healthy choices.

REMEMBER: For women, 25 grams of fiber per day is a GREAT help in this journey :)

So - what did y'all think of the webcast? Leave some comments and share your thoughts.

About Me

My photo
I love my Lord. He was FINALLY able to get through to me a few years ago just how much He really loves me. It is a wonderful feeling to be so in love with Him and know that He loves me even more than I could ever imagine - no matter how many times I mess up! I've been feeling more pulled to the "blogging" community for some reason. I'm not that good, but check me out at - Leave a comment and let me know you stopped by :)
