First of all, thank YOU for being a part of Holy Barre! This group of women has blessed me tremendously over the past year and a half, and I love hearing how others feel the same. And several, myself included, have expressed gratitude specifically for the bright light this group was during 2020. I have hope for 2021 knowing you all will be by my side, encouraging and empowering us all to burn bright!

There is so much on my heart to share with you ladies, but when I preparing for yesterday’s workout, God walked me down a path ending with just YOU.

Keep reading but go ahead and accept this YouVersion Reading Plan invite for our next one, Embrace Who YOU Are, that begins on Monday!

This week, I started here . . . Spiritual Battles & Warfare (there are battles all around; we need to be ready) . . . the Armor of God (let’s shift of our focus to the eternal and take advantage of His tools) . . . my passion and urgency is to be equipped, empowered, engaged by our King and His Kingdom . . . so we move forward to love & share (the goal) . . . we are better together (the foundation) . . . we need the LifeGroup, Community, Army (the strategy) . . . let’s rest in and be connected to His Spirit, grace, & truth (the point) . . .

Then God finished here with YOU . . . and your heart, soul, strength, & mind. He desires for us to get to know ourselves . . . and more importantly, deepen our grasp of Him & you together! Check out the newest pages on this site for details about book recommendations, the Armor of God, the burn bright significance, etc.

Who YOU are must be founded on these truths:

  • His power is made perfect in our weakness (2 Cor 12:9)
  • His power empowers and equips as well as allows you to align your strategy with Him. (Ephesians 5 – Armor of God)
  • His grace and truth set you free to move forward! (John 1:14, 8:32)
  • His giftings in you make us better (Romans 12:3-8)
  • His relationship makes you burn bright! (Romans 12:1-2)

Be healthy. Be bold. Be brave. Be strong. Be holy. Be beautiful. IN HIM! Be YOU in God & His Son & His Spirit! Because we must receive before we give. Only then can we move forward as women burning bright, better together, and armed for battle!

‘I pray that God, who gives peace, will make you completely holy. And may your spirit, soul, and body be kept healthy and faultless until our Lord Jesus Christ returns. The one who chose you can be trusted, and he will do this.’ – I Thes 5:23-24

‘If we, the lionesses of God, are ever going to produce a sound of such magnitude, it will require a change in our present posture. To have the ability to roar, we must drop our high-held heads to bow. This stance of humility and prayer will position us to receive a fresh infilling of the breath of God’s spirit. I believe this roar will happen as our intake of God’s spirit exceeds our capacity to contain His fullness of life. When we can no longer hold back His truth, love, and goodness, we’ll release a stirring declaration of ALL God is.’ – Lisa Bevere, Lioness Arising

Revival Rising!

Thanks for being a part of Holy Barre! Grateful for you and your desire to burn bright in this new year! May God truly ignite a fire in your heart, soul, strength, and mind! Just MOVE forward knowing we’re better together – you’re not meant to do life alone – His Spirit and His people are here to help ya!

2021 Video Update!

Just a brief update as we begin the new year, burning bright and better together!

Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Burning Bright in 2021!

Let’s kick off the new year with a renewed focus and a reignited passion for our spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health! I pray God truly MOVES in you and through you this year . . . so let’s get moving ourselves through Holy Barre!

We will start the year studying the book of Romans. Join us for this 7-day YouVersion Reading Plan, which begins on Sunday, Jan 3. << Jesus & the New Humanity>>

Our first Holy Barre Group Workout will be on Thursday, January 7, at 10:00am at Reclaiming Arts. If you can’t join us in person, we’ll be live on Facebook as well! As always, weekly workouts are later available in the Private Facebook Group and on our YouTube Channel.

Beginning in February, I’ll be going through Revelation Wellness Instructor Training. I am so excited for all God is doing and will do through this transformative ministry, and I am eager to share all the knowledge and resources with you. Here’s a free 21-day Journal you can download and work through this month: 21 Declarations: Your Identity in Christ.

Here’s something else to stir your heart as we enter a new year: I Heard the Lord Say ‘Daughters of God, Receive Your Promise’

I fully believe this new year is not a redo of our 2020 plans, but a revival for our heart, soul, strength, and mind! And staying true to my love of themes and parallels, Holy Barre’s focus will revolve around words that begin with R . . . Revival. Revelation. Refine. Radiate. The Book of Romans . . . So lastly, I encourage you to select a word of movement for 2021. Here’s a list to get you thinking!

Love ya’ll! – Libby
