End the seemingly endless struggle with food by following this proven path to food freedom!
Have you ever felt entirely desperate to lose weight...
Yet continually “fail” your weight-loss attempts, time and time again?
You want to change more than anything but, honestly, it all feels impossible as the physical, emotional, and spiritual weight gets heavier and heavier.
I get it. I’ve been there.
I had a love/hate relationship with diets for a couple of decades.
My first diet attempt was a disaster...
I loved searching for new diets, peeling open the slick pages of a new book, and even scrolling through before and after photos until my eyes went blurry. It all felt so promising.
But, as soon as I committed to following the diet, I hated it.
Suddenly, I felt claustrophobic and closed-in, and I panicked about the thought of banning my favorite foods.
So, I ate and ate and ate in response.
Honestly, half the time I never got started as the alarm of discouragement woke me up with reminders of yesterday’s failures.
But, if diets weren’t the answer, what was?
I had to do something, anything, different.
So, I tried, AGAIN...
So, I tried a “healthy lifestyle” plan, intuitive eating, and even a smattering of Christian weight-loss programs. I began each of them filled with hope only to have the air knocked out of me when, once again, I failed to change my deeply ingrained habits.
What didn’t strike me then (that’s super clear now), is that I was turning everything from a meal planning program to a Bible study into just another diet.
Did you catch that?
With diets, we’re walking a tightrope where we’re either on or off. We’re either nailing it or we’re failing it.
I lost hope...
I was exhausted and convinced that my stop button was broken.
But, my brake wasn’t broken...It was simply overridden by my fear of restriction, making each meal feel like the “last supper” of anything tasty.
Thankfully, our God, He makes all things NEW-- even our worn-out inner Diet Dictator.
The SOLUTION to the STRUGGLE
God’s grace is the missing piece to peace with food.
I spent years trying to create my own “extreme makeover” while overlooking the fact that everything I was good at took me time, practice (read: “failure”), and grace (not overreacting to those “failures”) to learn.
I had to stop trying to do things that I didn’t have the bandwidth to actually do. I needed to take it one step at a time into a new, healthy normal so that I could learn the skills I needed to be successful.
Diets say, “Do this now!” while grace says, “Be 1% better today!”
I set realistic expectations and stopped letting one bite turn into a downward spiral.
I sought God’s direction on how to eat and how to “measure” my success and my body, and it all started to make sense.
And it wasn’t that I stopped wanting to feel attractive or fit...those outward changes came as a result of walking along with the Lord.
In fact, the crazy-cool thing is that when we’ve embraced how God has set us apart and honor His direction for our eating, our habits change (for good) and our bodies will reach their greatest potential.
Weight loss is 100% possible and it’s 100% sustainable when you let God heal your brokenness and follow the leading of His Holy Spirit.
I know it feels backward, but I promise you that working backward is actually The Solution...
It’s about being fit and healthy inside and out, so that we’re ready to respond to the call that He has on our lives.
The Platinum program has everything you need to walk the journey to food freedom and happiness in your own skin.
Introducing Grace Filled Plate Platinum!
Platinum will give you everything you love at Grace Filled Plate but in an easy-to-follow program that’ll invigorate and heal your inner self so that your outside can shine too!
Having coached hundreds of women through this God-focused weight loss journey, I've seen that most women jump straight into trying to change what they eat or how long they exercise.
And what I’ve learned is...that’s a dead-end path to achieving what you want.
If you keep using the Band-Aid approach, you’ll stay stuck and not know why (and that's SO frustrating!).
When you join Platinum, your entire journey will be surrounded with support: support from me, your teammates, and tons of just-at-the-right-time resources to smooth any bumps along the way.
How will I see results?
Through the G.R.A.C.E. P.A.T.H.
Platinum is the only program that fully lays out the entire G.R.A.C.E. P.A.T.H. all in one place.
So instead of wandering around wondering what is next for you or what is "Biblical," the entire path is laid out in a simple, “just show up” format.
I’ll be taking you by the hand to peace with food and long-term weight loss, through the unexpected brownies, joyfully navigating holiday meals and going out to eat, and finding that G.R.A.C.E. P.A.T.H. God intended for you.
Because Platinum is like nothing else you've ever experienced. Because it’s the full path: the G.R.A.C.E. P.AT.H.
What makes the G.R.A.C.E. P.A.T.H. so special?
Each stone along the path is purposefully set to ensure your success! Get a sneak peek of what's ahead on your journey to food freedom, with each letter on the G.R.A.C.E. P.A.T.H.
G - Get Ready for a Transformation
Platinum is different. And, that’s a good thing, right? After all, the Lord tells us that His thoughts and His ways are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:9).
Before we embark on our journey together, we’re going to take a bird’s eye view of what’s ahead. Because, when you know what to expect, you can take in the scenery along the way.
Getting ready for a transformation is all about setting proper expectations, so that you pack everything you need and nothing you don’t (like diet baggage…).
R - Reject the Diet Mentality
Let’s be honest, you have some diet baggage. Baggage that will weigh you down on the Grace Path. I mean, really, who wants to carry along all those unhelpful thoughts and ideas that have kept you stuck in a pit?
By rejecting the diet mentality, you’ll feel an immediate release of food stress and begin to see less and less overeating.
A - Align Your Body Image with God's Word
You’ve probably read those Bible verses about being made in God’s image. And yet, I bet you rolled your eyes a bit when you tried to believe them. You figured you’ll wait to celebrate that truth when you get to your goal weight.
But, what if I told you that the "waiting" is setting up camp off the Grace Path? When you indulge that negative self-talk and spend your time and energy picking apart your body, you’re completely stalling your progress.
In this step, we’re going to ditch those negative thoughts so that you can put energy into making changes that will get you to your goals.
C- Craft a Vision and Plan for Your Health
When you think of reaching your goals, what vision do you see? What is at the end of your path?
If you’ve been wandering in the desert, chances are that you’re using the wrong map.
By creating a new vision for your health ON the Grace Path, you’ll have a destination in mind that will motivate you to make the changes you’ve been longing to (and yet felt incapable of doing so).
E - Establish Your Habits
Now that you know where your specific Grace Path leads, it’s time to create a purposeful (and prayerful) plan to get there.
This plan will keep you focused on the end result, so that you’ll be able to sidestep those fad-diet pitfalls and raging rivers.
P- Practice on Purpose
In this step, we’ll be practicing the plan we have laid out. Practice. That may be a scary word for your inner perfectionist, but this stage of the Grace Path will teach you how to change...in real life.
Because there’s no such thing as mastery without practice.
Rainstorms come and you’ll slip and fall in the mud sometimes, but every single toe stub is simply an experience to enrich your journey and make you more resilient.
A - Apply God's Word to Your Limiting Beliefs
The battlefield is in the mind. What you think about your health, fitness, body, and diet baggage will hold you up at the river’s edge. In fact, try to trudge across this raging river of negative self-talk and you’ll be swept away.
We can’t make significant changes without God and His Word (have you proven that fact like I have?). By digging into the Scriptures and finding what He has for you, you’ll finally be equipped with the gear you need to make lasting and meaningful changes.
When we transform our limiting beliefs, we build a bridge that crosses from bank to bank. No sweating or struggling or swimming upstream required.
T- Transform Your Nutrition Habits (while staying sane)
Nutrition, it DOES matter. And, making better eating choices will improve your health, inside and out. But, putting food-first will do the opposite.
We can improve our nutrition habits while staying sane by educating ourselves on nutrition facts without any of the fad diet or marketing fanfare. Simple, smart choices that marry your wants with the wisdom of the Holy Spirit can and will get you to your goals, one bite at a time!
H - Handle Challenges Like a Pro
The last step on the Grace Path meets you very close to your goals. In fact, neglecting to take this step of "managing mishaps" is the very reason so many women find it easier to lose weight than to maintain it.
This final training will teach you how to troubleshoot those plateaus and reset when your focus fizzles.
When you learn how to handle challenges like a pro, you’ll earmark your map with helpful strategies along the way.
We’ll create a maintenance guide that will serve as your lifelong Grace Path.

What's the investment?

From shakes and pills to programs and plans, the dollars add up faster than a trip to Whole Foods. Not to mention the money each subsequent diet venture will cost in therapy :)

When you join Grace Filled Plate Platinum, you’ll be embarking on a purposeful journey through our introspective courses, quick-win workshops, and topic-specific Bible studies.

These resources are created to change YOU, so that your healthy eating choices become your new normal.
Doing things “backward”...I promise it'll look good on you!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long will it take me to see results with Platinum?
A: You can start making healthier choices from Day One! However, if you are talking about weight loss, results will vary. Contrary to what hyped-up diets will tell you, long-term weight loss is a process (just like any other skill). With diets, you change everything in one sweeping motion-- but then most struggle to sustain those changes. With Platinum, you change one habit at a time.
Each person will have a different accumulation of habits that lead to weight loss. For some, that loss may happen on Week One. Others may need several weeks and several habits to put them into a caloric deficit that will result in a loss of body fat.
Q: What if I don't have a lot of time?
A: That's no problem at all. Taking more time is actually a good thing, as it allows you to fully learn and process the lessons.
Q: How long is this program?
A: Grace Filled Plate Platinum is a 6-month program but it's structured in such a way that you can take your time going through the lessons.
The monthly coaching calls and biweekly Q&A videos will occur for 6 months, and you’ll have access to the Platinum content, the private discussion area, and content updates for the lifetime of the program.
You’ll be able to join in on the live calls with all future cohorts.
Q: How is Platinum different from your other programs?
A: Platinum is truly that...The BEST of everything Grace Filled Plate, including much of the content from many of the courses I offer.
This program, in its entirety, will include over $2,000 worth of content.
In addition, you'll be receiving personalized coaching support on our group calls, within our interactive course content, and priority email support. This type of support costs $97 a month.
And honestly, how much have you spent on diets, pills, and programs that have left you worse off than when you started? When you join Platinum, you'll be learning skills that will not only transform your body but your life. It's really hard to put a price tag on that!
Q: What if I already own some of your courses?
A: If you've already taken How to End All-or-Nothing Eating, Body Image Makeover, or Faith + Food Foundations, you will recognize some of the assignments in Platinum. However, Platinum has an exclusive library of resources and a community of support that no other course offers!
Q: What kind of foods will I need to eat to lose weight?
A: We’re so conditioned to “fix” our food and weight issues by cutting out foods and placing more restrictions on what we “can'' have, but this is actually The Problem!
The truth is, there’s no one food or eating plan that will cause you to succeed or fail. Rather, your outcome is based on what you do consistently. With Platinum, you’re going to learn how to develop eating and exercise habits that you can keep up for life.
Q: Do you provide a food plan?
A: While you will get lots of direction on healthy habits, I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all eating plan. Rather than getting caught up in the minutia of “what to eat,” you’ll be targeting the areas that have the most dramatic impact on your physical, mental, and spiritual health.
But, don’t worry, I’ll be there to offer you all the individualized support you need, so that you can make the best changes possible!
Q: Will this course continue to be updated? And will I get free access to future versions?
A: Yes! This will become a flagship program here at Grace Filled Plate and it will be updated on a regular basis.
Once you are enrolled, all future versions are free at no cost.
Facebook group access will be limited to 6 months but you will have a paid option to continue in our alumni program.
Q: How much more is in the course vs. what you already put out on your blog?
A: The blog is like Google. There’s great content there, you just have to find it.
Platinum is like a GPS, showing you how to get to where you want to go as efficiently as possible while avoiding roadblocks, dead ends, and accidents.
