This is a picture of our first vacation since Jay’s accident last summer. It’s hard to believe it’s almost been a year since our lives were “interrupted”. (standing on top of a Glacier in Juneau Alaska)
I knew the moment I saw my new Personal Trainer’s Tattoo that said Faith over Fear that I was with the right coach. In fact I know God ordained my steps to start living that message for 5 months now. It all started in November at a conference when I heard God tell me to “BE BRAVE”.
How to BE BRAVE and Detox Your Fear
WOW WOW WOW that one defining message of “BE BRAVE” led me to Follow God’s directions and step up into things that were scary. Like to share my big failure moments with an audience of 51,000 people. Or spearhead a project that would get me so out of my comfort zone it has made me nauseous. Or even the simple task of picking up the phone and talking to people I don’t know hundreds of times. All these BE BRAVE actions have been hard but blessed me immensely. But it all started with DETOXing my FEAR.
The definition of DETOX means to abstain from or rid the body of toxic or unhealthy substances. FEAR is unhealthy….
Now I am not talking about the fear that keeps you from driving 100 mph I am talking about the FEAR that holds you back from being all you can be. You know the fear that keeps you from picking up the phone because you really are scared of rejection. It’s the kind of FEAR that is unhealthy, keeps you stuck in a rut, doesn’t let you overcome but likes to keep you in your comfort zone of life.
So stop reading if you are happy with the way things are in your life.

3 Tips To DETOX FEAR
#1 LISTEN AND Take ACTION
Listen to that inner voice, God’s voice on what and where you need to go, do, see. Action kills FEAR. I promise DOING even if you fall on your face will still serve you well.
#2 CONTROL YOUR ENVIRONMENT
Do you have “stinking thinking” people around you? Truly TOXIC friends and acquaintances need to be let go of in a loving way. But I know that sometimes our close family is part of our toxic environment. Limit your interactions, love them but don’t take their opinions and hurtful gestures to heart.
I got some good Personal Development and Personality training to help me understand my own husband better. It allowed me not to be offended or hurt once I understood that how he was made and operated was different than me. Tough Love: Remember you are in control of your hurt and what you allow.
#3 SPROUT JOURNAL
My personal development and business coach recommends that we write down 3 or more “Sprouts” in a journal everyday. A sprout is a positive growth, action, accomplishment from your day or life.
For example, today I followed up with 2 contacts, had special quality time with the kids, and de-cluttered 7 boxes for the mission.
A Sprout journal helps you see your growth over a period of time. Many times we can’t see all the foundation and roots being formed because we just see the small growth on top.
Detox To Invigorate Your Soul
Now you might be thinking, “All of that sounds okay, but you don’t know what I have been through Dr Mary… ”
A horrible divorce, a cheating spouse, an abusive childhood. I am sorry your soul is weighed down and broken from your past, but there is an answer;
His name is Jesus and he died so you and I could live and be free from our past. Now again you might be saying, “…but I already have Jesus in my heart and I still live with so much Fear, Anger, Hurt.”
In his Mission statement in Luke 4:18 NKJ Jesus says:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,[a]
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
That’s right!! He came to heal YOUR Broken heart, to set you free from Captivity and bondage, to help you live a FREE and abundant life. Through Jesus we can activate the most powerful spiritual detox known to man, one that will benefit you for life!
Since my personal BE Brave moment I continued to “listen and obey” that small voice that says stop being afraid and have Faith over Fear. As a result I was able to start and complete a project that is very near & dear to my heart, a tool for you to use to reset your worn down spirit and refresh your soul, it’s called Ministering to the Wounded with Essential Oil and Prayer eBook & Video Class.
In Ministering to the Wounded with Essential Oils and Prayer you learn exactly how the Lord is using pure essential oils and prayer for His glory, in your healing for Total Wellness. This is just the thing to get you on the path to a spiritual detox to invigorate your soul.
I’m also giving all my readers a FREE copy of Healing The Wounded, a simple guide to help you know exactly what to do, say and pray to bring emotional healing to the broken. So that the next time you want to be there for a loved one, you can be brave and confidently support them.
Do you love weddings? When was the last time you celebrated at a wedding? Weddings are such a happy occasion, and I’ve had the pleasure to attend one recently.
Preparing For Marriage
So happy for my friend Isa Agape. She waited patiently on the Lord for the man of her dreams. But also in that waiting time worked on herself, her healing and becoming the best woman she could be. She was a prepared Bride. Her husband has done the same. Success in marriage and life takes work. It means working on yourself harder than anything else.

Secrets To Restoring Peace & Unity in Your Life
Will you take the next step?
I put myself in a bootcamp starting back in April and I just completed it. It was a Bootcamp for moms like me. I have had some huge epiphanies this year in a lot of areas in my life, health, parenting, relationships, marriage, and of course my two jobs. This Bootcamp helped me to see I have been treating some “Jobs” in my life more like hobbies giving them attention when I feel like it versus showing up and doing the work day in and day out. This bootcamp along with some other training helped me realize that in most areas of my life I am doing okay to fair. What you might be thinking, but Dr Mary you are successful?! True I have had success and achieve new levels in certain areas of my life but…
The Problem with Success is a Little Bit…
What do I mean by that? See the problem with losing weight, increasing your income, having good kids, having a good marriage is you can fall into complacency that
- “Hey, I am doing good”
- “My marriage is better than most people”
- ” My income is great”
And with complacency you don’t work on being better because you think this is “good enough”.
Or you fall into a trap I heard termed “EGYPT” … If you are familiar with the Bible and the Israelite’s journey. During a famine Joseph saved his Father and brothers families and brought them (Goshen a property of Egypt). The land was rich farm land and perfect for their cattle and sheep. The Isrealites grew exponentially over the few hundred years but what was once their saving grace, their land of plenty became their enslavement. Literally they became the Egyptian slaves.. YIKES….
Complacency vs. Greatness
Think about it. Are you getting so comfortable or complacent in some area of your life you’ve gotten stuck? When it comes to health, marriage, your career or business, have you started to say things like…
- “I don’t need to eat good because I am skinny”
- “I workout I can drink and eat what I want”
- “I am young still”
“My parents lived to their 90’s”
- ” We’ve been married so many years we are just fine”
- “I don’t need to put effort into looking my best”
- “My spouse will never cheat on me”
- “They will never fire me they need me”
- “This money is coming in every month I can spend it how I want now.”
- ” I am at a level of success in my home business I get paid monthly now I don’t need to work anymore”
These attitudes keep us in average to good relationships, marriages, bodies, jobs, careers, businesses but we never get to our full potential because we stop learning, growing and working towards being our best. I think this happens because where we came from was so bad, poverty, struggle, being single, debt, brokenness that when our lives get good we just stay there, a few steps away from greatness.
With complacency you don’t work on being better because you think this is “good enough”.
The Key To Greatness: Awareness
I am encouraging you today to get out of Complacency. I AM CALLING YOU to WAKE UP to your EGYPT. This week take a good look at areas of your life that you might think are GOOD now but could be BETTER. Look at things in your life that were once a blessing but maybe now are binding you with stress, financial burdens, unfulfillment, or worry — become aware of them.
Seriously take the time to ponder this stuff.
Start a journal and write down areas of your life that you want to go from GOOD to GREAT… or maybe you are still in the FAIR or POOR group and you just want Good. Then I encourage you to join me on my Journey from Good to Great. It is so much more fun if we can do things together.
[Our] attitudes keep us in average to good relationships, marriages, bodies, jobs, careers, and businesses.

The Total Wellness Doc and Mom
10 years ago my husband together earned more than $80,000 dollars a year yet we were BROKE. We were drowning in credit card and consumer debt, fighting about how we spent our money and the debt we were in, and sadly going deeper and deeper into the abyss monthly. We owned nothing lived in a small 2 bedroom $450 dollar a month apartment and yet we couldn’t keep from using those credit cards.
Does that story sound familiar?
Do you live with credit cards you want to pay off?
Are you struggling living paycheck to paycheck?
If that is you I want to encourage you that there is hope. We have done it and dozens of our friends and family have too.
- We have gotten out of credit card debt, own our cars, and total have paid off $330,000 in debt.
- My friends RJ and Sue Mack just paid off $21,000 in debt in 6 months.
- My girlfriend Angela Anderson paid off almost $42,000 in 2 years as a teacher.
Are you ready to be on the other side of your debt and get your finances in order?
If you are ready then I want to invite you to join us for our upcoming WAR on DEBT Classes starting in May…
Stop Struggling Financially; Take ACTION!
If you are serious about living a life of Wellness Purpose and Abundance then join us and get your finances under control. I promise you what you learn and apply can change your life like it changed mine. And I will also share that when we got serious with our WAR ON DEBT is when we saw some real growth in our business.
