Food & Faith are two 'cornerstones' to living a healthy, fruitful life.
While our focus is on God first, food is also a key ingredient that is important to get right, if we are to live a truly fruitful life, free of dependency on unnatural pharmaceuticals and unnecessary surgeries ~ as our Creator intended for us!
Food and lifestyle factors either enhance or depress your metabolism ~ OR RATHER HELP YOU TO BE AN EFFICIENT BURNER OF ENERGY OR STORER OF FAT!
Enhanced metabolism keeps you young and vital, while sluggish metabolism leads to sluggish energy, greater fat storage, and premature degeneration ~ or aging.
The right foods, therefore, coupled with reduced stress and negative emotional responses to daily life challenges and routines better ensure more positive health outcomes, a more ideal body weight with appropriate percentage of body fat, and a more happy fruitful life.
One key factor missing in most nutritional coaching advice is the powerful component of faith.
"But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you." ~Matthew 6:33
Hi! My name is Tracy Matesz, wife and co-author/coach with my husband, Don Matesz. Welcome!
My husband and I hope to inspire living a healthy, free and fruitful life ~ aligned with God's Divine Operating System, or what I refer to as your DOS ~ through Food & Faith + Fitness, Forgiveness, and Freeing daily practices.
We enjoy and promote food & faith, including a meat and fruit-centered way of eating outlined in Meats & Sweets ~ A High Vitality Diet plus safe and effective strength training using weights, bodyweight, X3 bar and elastic bands. We offer Health Coaching, while Don also offers custom fitness routines ~ both available by phone and/or video chat.
I also offer Spiritual Coaching to encourage and support those ready to take the most liberating steps to overcome challenges, and be free of negative emotional states that sabotage one's vitality and peace of mind.
At Live Fruitfully you will find food & faith centered articles, our books & e-books, and my food & faith-themed online Live Fruitfully Store which features made in the USA wall hangings, mugs, and tees with inspiring scripture versus, Christian Crosses and other gifts, our favorite Bibles and historical books, spiritual and emotional healing books, top recommended supplements and items for the kitchen ~ all to add cheeriness, motivation and inspiration for living a healthy, fruitful life, faith-centered life.
We want YOU (and ourselves) to embody glowing health and vitality, mental, emotional, and physical strength, and the fruit of the Spirit, including love, kindness, goodness, forbearance (being quick to listen, slower to react!) and a peace that surpasses all understanding ~ a truly priceless gift from our loving Creator.
The Live Fruitfully, Food & Faith theme was birthed as a result of decades worth of experience with a multitude of diets, therapies and spiritual practices and all the associated ups and downs that Don and I now understand were the consequence of living out of divine order, following inferior default operating systems.
We both witnessed supernatural shifts transpire through a process of forgiveness and repentance. Through grace, we engaged a far superior Divine Operating System (DOS), which is available when we take the appropriate steps. Sadly, few really understand this process, or know how to keep their DOS finely tuned once engaged.
We are gifted with the opportunity to live amazing, fruitful lives if we follow our divine guidance, and 'hold ALL thoughts captive' with supreme vigilance through daily practice.
Daily practice maintains our connection with God, and helps us fine tune our our DOS. We have to learn how to tune out the static or noise, and tune in to the divine, voiceless voice of God.
Food & Faith therefore are important cornerstones to living a healthy, fruitful life.
Our mind/ego is our biggest saboteur, and a far more inferior operating system than most will ever admit ~ hence why I refer to it as Satan's Operating System, or SOS. (Look for more about this in my upcoming book, The Golden Compass, available 2021.)
Daily prayer (pray without ceasing) and daily silent meditation helps us sharpen our discernment, fine tune our DOS, and tune out (sometimes through firm rebuking!) the 'enemy' in our head, or SOS.
Many people are plagued with anxiety, fear, habitual worry, and other negative emotional states which can be very challenging to overcome ~ and detrimental to health! Being an overcomer is one of the main themes of the Bible, which is really a map for living a healthy, fruitful life.
As the late Pastor Peters shared in one fiery sermon, the number one thing you need to be an overcomer is...something to overcome!
Spiritual Coaching is for those who desire support and encouragement to upgrade their operating system, overcome negative thoughts, worry, and emotions, and solidify their faith-centered life.
"Be still, and know that I Am God."
I know from my own experiences, that no matter what all I tried of diets, holistic therapies, or self-help and new age teachings and spiritual practices, what had the most profound impact was when I had a direct awakening experience followed by more shifts following a forgiveness process that really transformed my life.
I truly believe you can transform your life ~ no matter what age, or how broken you believe yourself to be.
Whether you want help with weight/fat loss, improved health, or freedom from reliance on Western sick care systems, or you desire greater mental/emotional freedom and/or spiritual grounding and connection, we are here to help!
God's power to help you overcome is exponentially more powerful than any of the therapies out there. While natural remedies can be very helpful, ultimately God is the healer, and your faith is the conduit to receiving the healing.
We have been 'trained' to acquire things to fill our voids, but it never works. Those ego-driven desires are insatiable!
Things can't fill our spiritual voids. Only a change in our entire operating system ~ and the right food & faith ~ can do that!
The reason we suffer ~ individually and collectively ~ is because we are disconnected from our Source ~ God ~ and have transgressed His laws! That is made very clear throughout the Bible, and throughout our history!
The ultimate power to transform and heal your life begins with your sincere desire to change. The biggest obstacle for many people to overcome is the resistant, obstinate nature of our mind / ego, or SOS. It does not want to be subservient to anything!
"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." ~Romans 8:6
God created us to be healthy, strong and fruitful, not weak, immobile or unproductive. We are meant to experience peace, love and joy, not anger, fear or hate. Food & Faith are two cornerstones to a healthy fruitful life!
