THE VISION & MORE
For just a moment, let's dream big beautiful lady...
Some years ago, God dropped one small thought into my spirit, and it totally redirected the course of my life.
"How much more effective could the Body of Christ be if we were healthy and well?"
This one statement caused a life-altering shift in my heart and mind and has pulled me to pursue what this vision looks like from that moment on.
So will you go there with me for just a moment amazing lady? Can we dream big together? Just imagine what it would look like if...
we weren't busy, overwhelmed or burnt out
the lies of the enemy and negative self-talk were shut down for good
our bodies were fit and strong for our journey
we were free from the guilt and shame we often feel about our health
we enjoyed good health, lived within healthy boundaries and felt full of purpose each day
we were able to be and do what God has purposed us to do with grace and ease
we weren't held back from our unique God-given purpose by any aspect of our health
we were full of energy, passion and enthusiasm for life every single day
Just imagine the impact that we, a company of Christian women,
could have on the world around us if we were bursting with health and thriving well in spirit, soul and body!
Does that give you goosebumps? Does that thought make you excited just a little bit?
If so, I invite you to join me on The Healthy Happy Soul journey.
Let's make this God-sized dream a reality, together.
MAY GOD HIMSELF, THE GOD WHO MAKES EVERYTHING HOLY AND WHOLE, MAKE YOU HOLY AND WHOLE, PUT YOU TOGETHER - SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY - AND KEEP YOU FIT FOR THE COMING OF OUR MASTER JESUS CHRIST.
1 Thessalonians 5:23
We believe in approaching health holistically and working with the three dimensions of wellness:
SPIRITUAL. EMOTIONAL. PHYSICAL.
Heath & wellness His way
So often people ask 'so what exactly is The Healthy Happy Soul and what do you do? Is it like personal training with some Bible verses thrown in?' Well no, not really....
The Healthy Happy Soul is all about health and wellness His way. That means seeking Him first in our health holistically. If you're not sure what that looks like, that's ok. It's because we haven't been taught to approach our health and wellbeing this way. And that's exactly why The Healthy Happy Soul exists, because I couldn't find anything out there like what God placed on my heart.
I wanted a way to be able to share this with as many women as possible. Because like I've mentioned before, just imagine the impact we could have as the Body of Christ if we were healthy and well. Our health is foundational to being able to be and do all He has called us to. I've myself have personally experienced, and I've coached hundreds of others to enjoy the freedom and fullness of health that living this way offers.
The Healthy Happy Soul is all about creating foundational health habits His way. The ones that set you up for long-term success. The things that contemporary wellness gurus rarely tell you. It’s the simple stuff that people often overlook. It’s the habits that our instant quick-fix culture never glorifies. It’s the slow sustainable stuff, working from the inside out, to break the feeling like a consistency failure when it comes to health. It’s stuff like how to have a good bedtime so that you’re ready for anything when you wake up the next day. It's strategies like using prayer and seeking God as a proactive key for your health, rather than just a reactive response in times of crisis. It’s the simple foundational tips that help you to go well for a long time and support you to chase the big high dreams and goals that He has placed on your heart to pursue.
That’s what The Healthy Happy Soul is about. That's what our mission aims to deliver. That's why we're here.
Our mission is to to inspire, educate and empower christian women to value and care for their wellbeing -
in spirit, soul and body
About the founder
Stacey McBride Wilson
Hi there beautiful lady, I'm Stace!
Just like you, I juggle lots and wear many hats (or whatever else you'd like to call it).
I'm a life loving wife, mumma, fitness instructor, wellness coach, author and the passionate visionary heart behind The Healthy Happy Soul (once upon a time I was a high school teacher too!) I also love sunrise beach walks, Jesus and a good cup of tea.
Life is full. Jam packed full of goodness that is.
But things haven't always been this way.
It's been a pretty wild journey to get to this place.
I've suffered with chronic fatigue syndrome, been underweight, depressed, self-destructive, reckless party girl, teenage mum, overweight, resentful, bitter, self-image focused and fitness obsessed... Yep, really.
So wherever you're at in your health journey, believe me I get it. There ain't no judgement here.
Along the way I've learnt some stuff (ok, I've learnt a lot!). Not just about physical health, but about our emotional and spiritual health, about the power of approaching our health holistically, and about God's heart and best for our health too. It's now my life’s mission, the reason I get out of bed every day, to teach how to do wellness His way (you can watch me share my story and why I do what I do here).
We weren't meant to do this thing called life alone, especially our health and wellness; we all need a little support to be able to live our best life. I'm so so so very grateful for the professionals, mentors, friends and family who came alongside me on my journey! They saw something in me when I saw nothing, they believed in me when I didn't believe in myself, and they knew I was made for more and brought it out of me.
And now it's my turn to share that gift I've been given. To pass it on. The Healthy Happy Soul exists to teach and inspire women how to be healthier and happier as a follower of Jesus. It's a place where I cheer on and champion women as they discover and embrace the amazing health and life God created each and every one of us to enjoy.
I consider it the greatest privilege to share my expertise and life lessons to educate and empower others. Let's connect and work together to unleash you into your best life, spiritually, emotionally and physically, too!
Because I know you were made for more beautiful lady....
