How is your Body Image?

“When ever you feel unloved, unimportant, or insecure,
remember to whom you belong.”

Ephesians 2:19-22

Does your body make you feel unloved, unimportant or insecure? Please take a moment and let me remind you that you were created in Gods image. You are perfect exactly the way you are. This does not mean to ever stop being the best person you can be, or continue to better yourself and grow. This simply means that you are who you are and that is the perfect person you can be. This is who God wants in this world right now. We all have those moments when we feel less then perfect. You may have woke up this morning and your pants fit a little tight. There is two ways to handle this feeling. You can sink lower in your self image, metaphorically put on a pair of sweats and crawl back in bed with a donut, or you can make a change right then to love your body and do the best you can to make it look and feel amazing. Now this is important so listen closely. The perfect body is yours! Not your neighbors or your favorite TV star, Yours. Listen to your body and only put into it what makes it feel fueled and good. For me this is simple foods with little to no preservatives that are easy for your body to digest. Of course I would say that adding exercising is a good idea. If you are able to add this to your schedule then of course yes. I know we are all busy and it is not always easy to exercise, but your body will love you if you are able to add a little in once in a while. I encourage you to start with 5 minutes. After that 5 minutes then make sure you think “wow” I got in a little exercising today. It doesn’t matter how much you do, but how you think about it. I can run for an hour, but if I’m negative about it the whole time, did I win? No, in fact it will be that much harder to start the next time you have time. As you can slowly add more until you find the perfect time and intensity for your body. Body image is what we make of it. Ladies, if you want a “bikini body” then put on a bikini! BAM! Done. If you wait for your neighbors body you will never feel good about yours. God made you perfect for you. Guys, if you want to rock a slick look then go for it. Confidence is sexy and a healthy body image is empowering and joyful for you. When you love your body then God feels that love too. There is always little things we can do to improve ourselves and I encourage you to do that in every part of your lives and never stop. Our bodies may be giving us subtle or not so subtle signs that we need to follow in order for us to feel the best we can, but our minds and how we see ourselves has a lot to do with our body image as well. Please remember that God loves you, thinks your important, wants you to embrace who you are and who you were created to be. So the next time you feel unloved, unimportant , or insecure, remember who you belong.


Please God be with us this week and help us to love our bodies and see them the way you do. Help each one of us go out today and tomorrow feeling confident in knowing that this is the perfect us.



Lord, today we come to you with HAPPY hearts.  We are so grateful that you give us the opportunity to change the lives of those around us.  We are grateful that you give us the wisdom to change our lives and the lives of those around us.  And you make it so simple. We can do it with a single smile. God today I would ask that you help us to smile more. The next time we see someone down, help us to smile for them. The next time we are down, help us to remember that you gave us the best gift ever. The ability to know you, your son, and the holy spirit. God, we are so grateful for everything you give us.

We ask all these things in your Precious Son's Name


A Little More

 The other day I got a call from one of our clients.

I love talking to our clients so I always smile when I answer the phone.

“Hey Dan, one of my drivers is pulled over and they are saying that our permit doesn’t cover what we weigh. Isn’t that why we hire your team to make sure that these things don’t happen!”

My smile immediately vanished.

I was shocked because my team is amazing. and it’s not like them to miss something like 20,000 lbs on a permit.

So, I asked him, “Who have you been working with, and who was the one who called our team to get the permit?” 

To get to the bottom of the problem I needed the details.

They gave me the details.

My next call was to my team. Then after I got the details I got them started on getting new permits to get the problem fixed. I’m a solutions guy, not an excuses guy.

But I NEED to know the real reason why it happened so that we can fix the issue.

My next call was to the driver so that I could see exactly what happened.

I knew he was going to be upset. He was pulled over and they were going to give him a HUGE ticket. I wouldn’t be happy either.


I made sure not to smile when I made the call.  I had a serious look on my face. As we chatted I learned that he was the person who gave his weight to our team. I asked where he got the weights from and how in the world they were off by over 20K lbs!

That’s when he told me that he might have gotten the wrong scale ticket from the weigh station where he originally weighed.

Immediately my heart leapt with joy, this is NOT our fault!

Now to get the problem resolved and get this driver back on the road was my only goal.  I was not going to assign blame or make anyone feel bad. 

Hey, we all make mistakes. I do it multiple times every single day.

The owner of the company shot me a text. I'm getting permits from the big guys. They won’t make these mistakes that cost me time and $$$$$.

No problem.  Let me know if you need anything. We are here to help.


After they called the “BIG Guys” they called me about 30 minutes later.

Hey, we can’t get an Idaho permit until Monday. It’s Friday night. And we need to drop this load off tomorrow afternoon.

I told him that I would NOT make any promises.

But my team went to work!

Guess what????

We got the permits that the “BIG Guys” couldn’t get.

My team had the Idaho permit in less than 20 minutes. For the right weight this time.

Here’s the point of all this.

When things don’t go right, smile. I have taught my whole team this.

That right there is how we got the permits. They smiled as they worked and it didn’t take any time at all.

Ok, there might be a little knowledge that went into this too. Lol

Next time you need anything DOT, don’t call the “Big Guys” , call the team who can get it done!
