Speak to your Mountain What is a MOUNTAIN? No, not the large landform that stretches above land in a limited area to form of a peak. I’m talking about the mountain in a believer’s life? The mountain that is the hindering from doing many things in your life. This mountain can be anything that contradicts […]
Empowering women to focus on Faith, Fitness, and Sisterhood!
HHMoM exists to empower women as they strive to balance daily responsibilities with maintaining a sense of “self”, focusing on mind, health, and soul. HHMoM believes it is imperative that women are supported on their journey to becoming the best version of themselves through accountability in goal setting and achievement, awareness of health habits and body image, and acknowledgment of God’s love, goodness, and provision.

30 Days to a HHMoM
As moms, we already have a laundry list of things to do. Adding a healthier lifestyle to the list can seem so big it’s undoubtedly overwhelming. There are just so many components to this lifestyle, such as exercising more, breathing through the stress, getting down to a certain size, and […]

This is MY truth, based on who I am. This a poem. I’m am sharing with you my unique story of judgment, issues of body images, and stereotypes. This is MY truth and we all have things related to our outward appearances that people automatically judge and stereotype. However, we must relish in the […]
2 Corinthians 12:9-10The Message (MSG) 7-10 Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to […]
Last week my faith was tested…my ability to be still & let God work things out for my good was tested. Both of those things were things that I learned from our HHMoM small group. I really thank God for allowing me to be apart of this group.
I am the type of person that can gets involved with wayyy more than I should but then I would blame others when something would fall. Well not anymore. HHMoM really taught me how to handle things..which is…one step at a time. & through this group I have developed friendships that I am beyond grateful for today. Whenever I need a recheck of all the many things I have going on I think back over our conversations during our groups. I remember praying for certain things & then hearing the same thing the next week during our group time. It could be things about marriage or things about my kid; but the biggest was things about my own self. All of our studies would just bring me back to center & remind me that if self wasnt good, I was NO good for others!
I really learned that I am not alone on this journey called motherhood & that there are other moms that have gone through or are currently going through similar things as me. As for me, I find comfort in knowing I am not the only one that goes through the daily struggles I face in life.
I am thankful for the friendships most of all. I feel like I have a support system in a city where I know many but only really “know” a few. Lets be honest we don’t trust everyone with our babies! But through the friendships I have build I was able to call out for help last week when I was out of town & know that all would be ok while I was gone. That meant more to me that words could ever express because nothing is more scary than being miles away from home & your childcare fall through. But remembering that I was not alone nor the first person to every have this happen, made me stop in my tracks, calm down, say a quick little prayer & let God work. He gave me a peace in my heart first so that I could be still & listen to what to do next. Which is something I never would have done before my own journey to becoming a Healthy Happy Mom!
-Chantel, what you are doing with this group is far bigger that what the average eye can see. You are such a warrior & I am honored & proud to call you friend. I thank God for our paths crossing because through you He has opened my eyes to so much more. It takes a lot to lead & be a messenger for God, but God gives his toughest battles to his strongest warriors. My friend, you are one of the strongest warriors I know! I am so excited to see what all is in store for the fall! I cant wait to help & be apart of reaching the masses as we all are on this journey to become the best Healthy Happy Mom we can!
