Thin Within: Fresh Wind Fresh Desire Study – Large Group Class

New opportunity!  We are taking a large group through our first version of our newest curriculum this summer! We have never done this before, but have only taken small coaching groups through FWFD.

Join us for this sneak peak. This isn’t for the faint of heart, however!

  • Take 7 weeks to go through 24 lessons!
  • Learn new tools to change the way you think so you can change the way you act toward food, eating, your body, emotions that have previously made you eat, trials
  • Recognize lies that fuel inappropriate eating and breaking of your boundaries
  • Learn how to renew your mind with tools such as the Victory List, Correction Log, God List, Praise Fest, Planning for Trials, etc.
  • Find out just how satisfying eating LESS of the foods you LOVE can be!
  • Learn how to love activity and movement and to give it the proper place in your life!
  • Thin Within isn’t about having freedom to eat whatever you want so much as it is experiencing freedom from the pull of foods that have owned us for so long! We have freedom TO eat and freedom NOT to HAVE to eat something because it is available.
  • Lay the foundation in a Summer Sprint to see your desires to overeat change. In fact, in our short 7 weeks, you will experience hope rising as you see little indicators that God is at work WITHIN your heart and mind.
  • Cost will be $39 if you already have the Fresh Wind Fresh Desire Curriculum and just want to enjoy the support of our group, webinars, and live feeds this summer. If you want to purchase access to the group, please visit this link.
  • Cost is $49 if you need the curriculum as well. To purchase access to the material AND our Summer Sprint group, please visit this link.

The video below is a recording of a live Facebook feed that I did explaining what we are doing with this ONE-TIME Only class. 🙂

Thin Within Coaching Groups

Coming Fall of 2018!! 

Christina and Heidi are taking groups of 8 on an intimate 10-week  journey of the heart and mind this Fall.

We have discovered that coaching groups are much more effective for experiencing transformation. 

  • Accountability and support within the group are a vital part of these coaching groups.
  • Enjoy the enthusiasm and experience of two coaches for this more intimate journey.
  • An hour-long weekly conference call with AnyMeeting (accessible with a computer or phone)
  • Intimate interactions and discussion with your fellow group members and your TWO coaches (Heidi and Christina) via Facebook Secret Group.
  • The newest curriculum we have created is used for this unique experience. Fresh Wind, Fresh Desire is provided included in the cost of the coaching group membership.

Check back here later to get more information or subscribe to our newsletter to receive notification to your inbox.

From Group Coaching Participants:

I was in the first coaching group …it was awesome! First, you feel much more of a sense of camaraderie with fellow Thin Within sisters when you do it, and that carries over into feeling that way about people not even in the TW coaching group, but those that I come across on Think Thin Within (the Facebook Group) or just the regular discussion group. Getting to know each other and have even closer contact with Christina and Heidi is awesome! I love the videos both of them do for the groups. It’s a great renewing the mind method to get one of their videos and listen to it or watch it whenever you’d like. The weekly phone calls were great, because they got everyone talking together and sharing. ~ Shelly

If you are on the fence about joining one of Heidi and Christina’s small coaching groups, please listen up!!!  I was in their very first session, and loved it so much I continued on with the second session!!! I am thriving in the safe and loving “nest” they have created to help us “baby birds” (my term, not theirs) grow and learn to FLY!!! I love the fellowship, and the grace-based accountability is *exactly* what I need to help me “walk in the light” in this soooo-difficult area that I have been struggling with for *years,* and that I have preferred hiding and staying in the dark in.  Through the wisdom and gracious, loving leadership of Heidi and Christina (and the others in the group, too!), my thinking is getting transformed and my heart healed! (Plus ~ bonus! ~ I have lost 23 pounds!) So I want to gently ~ but loudly ~ beckon you to hop OFF that fence and join us in the fragrant, green “small coaching group” pasture!!! IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!!!!!! ~ Barb

Many have asked about a class that is not hosted on Facebook. We have delivered! This is an on-going, self-paced study of the Thin Within trade book.  To participate in this class, simply visit this website. To start at the beginning, go to this page. We hope that you will comment and interact with one another to establish a bit of community. Please keep in mind that this is not a private venue like the Facebook groups, so when you register for a WordPress account to use, you may want to use a pseudonym. We have veterans who visit frequently to encourage you in your journey and respond to any questions you may have. Come on along! 🙂
