My name is Jodi Watkins, and I am a recovering addict.

In my life, I have been addicted to overanalyzing, stubbornness, seeking pleasure from the wrong people, self-sabotage, suppression, drama, and people-pleasing to the point I could no longer function. Everything was falling apart all at once. The addictions left me hurting and feeling alone with no way out.

While I may have looked fine on the outside, I was crumbling on the inside. The problem with beginning a healing journey is that we often don't know where to begin. This was the case for me, which is why I finally sought help. 

I am here to tell you that healing is necessary for addiction recovery. Healing lessens misery. We must remove the mask and begin this process to become fulfilled and receive the blessings God wants to give us. I will not tell you healing is easy. I will not tell you learning to love yourself is easy. I will not tell you that forgiveness of self and others is easy. I'd be lying. I will tell you the journey is necessary. I don't want to see you crumble. It would be best if you didn't have to get where I was before I finally submitted it. I want to be that person to lift you when you need it the most.

This life is no sprint. There is no fast track to get to the finish line.                           

We must embrace each moment.

We must work our faith muscles and practice self-care first thing in the morning.

Here, you will learn to stay balanced instead of stressed and let go of things we can't change.

Our biggest enemy in life is us. We can hold ourselves back from anything significant.

Once we let go of pride and realize we are worthy, we become more willing to allow ourselves to manifest what we desire. We begin to live more intentionally. It becomes more about those around us instead of woe is me. This life is one that we truly must embrace. I am here to help you learn the steps to embrace it.

Thank you for being here. Now, let's begin the journey you were always meant to be on.

You can click the buttons for "Blog," "Experiences," "Announcements, "Groups," etc.

Spiritual Awakening Ministries
Faith without works cannot be called Faith. “Faith without works is dead” (James 2:26), and dead faith is worse than no faith. Faith must work it must produce; it must be visible. Verbal faith is not enough; mental faith is insufficient. Faith must be there, but it must be more. It must inspire action.
Jodi Watkins
The Unforced Pathway to Sound Leadership
Unforced leadership strategies involve leading by example, fostering authentic relationships, and empowering others through positive influence rather than authoritative control. These strategies prioritize collaboration, active listening, and empathy to create an environment where individuals willingly follow due to the leader's credibility, values, and ability to inspire. Unforced leaders leverage their expertise and emotional intelligence to guide teams effectively, cultivating a culture of trust, innovation, and mutual respect. Ask questions on the "Discussion Board" and interact with me!

Setting the Stage for 2022 - Final Call for 2021
A goal without a plan is just a wish. Let's stop wishing and let's make 2022 our year!
Week 1 of 2022 - Why Crunches Don’t Get You Abs: Dispelling Myths with Facts
Welcome to 2022! Let's make sure we don't let another year go by where our dreams and goals aren't being accomplished! This experience talks about a myth involving crunches and why they actually aren't going to help anyone lose body fat. It takes a whole lot more to rid our bodies of total body fat and we can't "spot check" with our bodies! I am here to provide you with everything I have ever learned!
Week 3 of 2022 - Beginning an Exercise Program and Sticking to It
This experience not only gives you tips on how to begin an exercise program, but also how to continue when "life happens." These tips don't just apply here. They can be used with ANYTHING in our lives! Always remember the why and never quit! Keep commitments to yourself no matter what! You got this and I am here to help you continue! Let's build out this group and support and encourage one another! Thank you for being here!
Week 4 - Establishing Better Eating Habits
This call goes over some tips to establish better eating habits. It all starts with the mind. If we become intentional, we can literally accomplish anything. We just have to want to accomplish it. Once we make the decision, we can do a whole lot more and go a whole lot further than ever before.
2024 - Call #2 Visualizing Your Success
This lesson goes over the importance of visualizing, but also the importance of creating a strategy to take action. I hope you interact and explore all the opportunities presented. This is a new year and a new chance to create the life you've been dreaming about. When we desire change, we begin to take action steps to make that change. Nothing changes if nothing changes. Join me today, and let's visualize together!
2024 - Call #1 Mindset Matters
This call goes over mindset and some of the things we endure in life. I encourage you to take your time going through this and watch the video all the way through. This week, we discussed mindset and how much our minds control whether or not we reach our goals. Come back every week for the calls and share the group with others who would love to learn more!
Why Flexible Eating Plans Are Sustainable
Which option BEST describes the characteristic(s) of a high-quality nutrition plan? The answer is simple: A nutrition plan should be flexible, based on person's needs and goals
Time Management and Nutrition Basics
This experience will help those who may be struggling in the areas of time management and basic nutrition. This experience will give you some tips I have learned along the way to not only help me accomplish more in the day, but also help me fuel my body according to my goals. I am now sharing everything I have learned along the way with you, in order to help you live a healthier and more fulfilled life. Be blessed!
Natural Immunity
Building our immune systems, especially in this day and age, revolves around thoroughly researched studies and making informed decisions. I became more passionate about immunity in 2007, after my mom passed from a common bacterial infection after contracting HIV (which turned into AIDS in the end). During the time I was taking care of her (she also had Multiple Sclerosis, Hyperthyroidism, and was found to have bipolar disorder), I took many courses to learn how to use more natural approaches to her overall care. The multiple prescriptions were really affecting her physically and psychologically. Therefore, I made it my personal mission to learn what I could. Fast forward, 2017, my daughter was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). I began to learn how nutrition played a part in this as well. In 2019, I read case studies on a company called Juice Plus. I couldn't believe how simple it could be to boost our immune systems naturally just by adding in more fruits and vegetables. Therefore, I became a distributor for the company. Then, in 2020, we were introduced to a new strand of the SARS virus they called Covid-19. The thing about viruses (as we have learned from the flu) is they mutate however needed to infect the host (person). As we (people) came up with ways to supposedly combat the virus, we actually made it worse. We used cleansers such as Lysol and bleach that have been found to have a negative effect on the lungs. Depleting our lungs is what Covid thrived on even more. We also used more hand sanitizer. We began doing more to lessen our immunity. We focused more on human creations than natural resources. As we continue through this "pandemic," it is super important for us to focus on natural ways to boost our immunity. In this experience, you will read about Juice Plus and read peer-reviewed studies. I will also share my experiences and what I use to combat things in our house. Join me to learn about holistic immunity.
Letting Go of Yesterday
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past." - Isaiah 43:18 No matter where our paths have taken us before, it doesn't have to be where we go now. We have the power to shift and create what we desire. We just have to be willing to face ourselves, learn, and grow each day more and more. We have to be willing to put things into practice that may help us become better versions of ourselves. We ultimately have to be willing to let go of blame and shame. We learn from our experiences and we move on. It's as simple as that. Thank you for being here and I hope you will want to share this with everyone you know!
Topic: NUTRITION 101 - K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple and Stress-Free)
Tonight, we went over the following: 1) Food Intake 2) Diary Tracking 3) Drink Water 4) Consistency Have you ever thought about what you were going to eat before you ate it? How difficult would it be to plan your meals out beforehand? How much water do you drink? How much SHOULD you drink? According to research, it takes at least 10 consistent weeks to form a new habit as part of a daily routine. Why is this important to consider during your journey? Because YOU are important!
Being Intentional - Get a Planner!
Remember that not every day will be a great day. You will have days where you have to force yourself to get going. However, take it from me, those are the days where you need to exercise even more. You will feel so much better. Otherwise, you may go through the day blaming yourself and just having a bad day all around.
A Day in the Life
This entire journey, I have wanted to document my time and what happens daily. Nevertheless, I have not made it a priority. Today, I will change this. I want to share with you what has happened when I let go and let God take control.
15 Things We Spend Money On Besides Our Health
When we say, “I can’t afford…,” what we are really saying is that we would rather spend our money on something else. We place value on material things, but we are very careful when it comes to investing in ourselves. Why is that?
Overtasked and Completely Defeated: 3 Steps to Overcome Insanity
Stop trying to do it all…you are not meant to accomplish 50 tasks in one day. You are human, not superhuman.
We Are In It Together! Don't Quit!
Our experiences are what make us who we are. It's not meant for us to go through this life alone. As we share the things we have dealt with in our lives, not only are we able to help more people, but we are also able to heal from the things that are currently holding us back. Join me in this experience and let's become limitless together.
Past Episode Breaking Barriers Now - Staying Positive in Unknown Circumstances - March 27, 2020
Hi Everyone! Today, I brought on my friend, Kellie Jackson, to talk with us about homeschooling and how we are making this work. Kellie has been doing this for a while, but due to some different circumstances her family went through, she had to learn how to be a mobile homeschooling mom. Her information was truly valuable and I loved having this time with her to talk about things that are working for us. As a work-from-home mom, I had to learn how to implement this, but we are making it work. Self awareness is so important and learning our kids is even more important. Hang in there everyone! This too shall pass and we will ALL be stronger and more patient when it's over. 0
Breaking News: There Is No Magic Pill in Life
This experience is to share information that has led me to be more passionate about sharing science-backed information in order to achieve our goals. There are so many "gurus" out there with these "get skinny quick" diets and fads that don't last! It's time to stop wasting your time and money and become patient in learning and patient in the process. It's a journey! You just have to be willing to continue it and create lasting results!

This experience introduces the platform to a couple of wonderful ladies I know. I am so grateful for their time and willingness to learn something new! Please continue to spread the word and join in the discussions!
Continuing the Journey - Meeting #2
I apologize for the sound for the song. I encourage you to look it up and listen for yourself. It is an amazing song! Lord, you are my refuge, my strength and my help in times of trouble. Even when I face difficult situations, I will not fear because you are with me. You cover me and protect me. You go before me to fight my battles - and you ALWAYS win. Nothing is impossible for you. No matter what I face today, I will place my hope in you. Amen. Please go to the group to be more involved and for open discussion. All discussions are 100% anonymous. Today I pray that if you are in a valley and you're not sure how to get out of it, you look to the Lord. He is our salvation. He is the one we must learn to rely on. He is everything we have. Today and everyday, look to Him to get you through hard times. When we rely on ourselves, we receive anxiety, overwhelm, and depression. With Him, we receive all the blessings He has in store. He doesn't give us the roadmap because He needs to know we will choose to trust Him in the darkness. The more we practice, the better we get - just like anything else in our lives. It's not up to us to "figure it out." It's up to us to trust Him and know He has already won our battles for us. There is a reason I must practice this daily...if I don't, I WILL fall short. So I have to learn how to RECEIVE his words more and more each and every day. It's not going to be perfect. However, receiving His guidance is possible the longer we put forth the effort. In order to receive God's favor, we must do these things: 1) Abandon what we "thought" we knew 2) Accept that we are NOT in control 3) Be Accountable and faithful in our journey 4) Advocate for others who are struggling and who God has placed in our paths 5) Agonize and listen to the hurt of others. Listen to their pain and be their support system when they have none 6) Carry the Armor of God with you everywhere you go 7) Be Available when others need you and remember that God is using you for His glory! 8) Be Aware of your downfalls and weaknesses in order to work on them more. For this, I always say keep GOOD people around you who will help you point these things out. This is what I must do. 9) Have Authority knowing God is our redeemer and our Savior. He must pray without begging. We must know that God is for us and not against us. Thank you for being here. I pray you will come back.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please reach out. Looking forward to connecting with you in the future and coming together in order to do more. Love you! God bless! Dear Lord, it is through being with you that I learn to love and give and love you more. Today and always, please help me to rest in your presence. And as I rest with you, show me what it means to love like you. Reshape the way I view my relationships with you so that I see the world differently. Teach me what it means to love you with all of my heart, soul, mind, and strength. In Jesus' mighty name. Amen. Ephesians 4:32 "Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as Christ God forgave you." Acts 4:12 "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved."
We Are Meant to be in Community
"Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." Psalms 23:4 You WILL walk through valleys. I am currently walking through one, Nevertheless, you don't have to do it alone. Stay in community with others who want to support and encourage you. Together, we are able to accomplish so much more of what God wants for our lives. So don't hold back. You are loved. God bless!
Begin Where You Are
Hi everyone! As I say everyday, it doesn't matter where we begin when we are working towards a new goal. All that matters is that we do, in fact, begin. Depending on where we all are in our journeys, we could need to simply drink more water. Maybe we need to get more intense. Maybe we need to move more. Maybe we need to stop sitting so much. Maybe, just maybe we need to simply just begin. Today, we are doing just that. This is the beginning. We don't wait on perfect circumstances. We don't wait for perfect conditions. We shift as needed and we continue the process of becoming a better version of ourselves (with effort) each and every day. Thank you for being here!
Spiritual Awakening Ministries - Walking in Faith
What is faith? What is walking in faith? Thankfully, the Bible contains a clear definition of faith in Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Simply put, the biblical definition of faith is “trusting in something you cannot explicitly prove.” If you're anything like me, learning how to trust something you can't see or prove is far from an easy task. I already had trust issues. I was betrayed so much from early in life it got to the point that's just what I was used to. I began to do something I never truly put effort into - reading the Bible and actually USING the scriptures in my life I was reading. Have you ever tried this? Look, I am not here to tell you what to believe. That is ultimately your choice. What I will tell you is I tried relying on people. The Lord taught me a lot of lessons there that I just simply was NOT listening to. I had to submit. I had to get desperate. Where are you in your faith today? Join me in this experience and let's discuss our journeys. God bless!
Weekly Wins and Kinesiology Tape - Providing Education and Strategy
Tonight, we will continue going over your weekly wins. I will also explain Kinesiology Tape and why I use it. We will also go over your goals for next week and how to accomplish those goals. Make sure you go to the Announcements page to get the Zoom link! These videos will also be recorded and entered into the group as Experiences. Convene allows us to share experiences and come together with purpose! Join in!
Spiritual Awaking Ministries - Fear
Proverbs 29:25 – “Fear can be a trap, but if you trust in the Lord, you will be safe.” What are you fearful for today? Is there something you want to do but don’t know where to begin? I pray you release this to the Lord. This past week, the Lord has revealed some things to me as well. For years, I never let people get too close. It was a protective mechanism I didn’t even realize I had. I would do it by hurting those who I felt were getting too close. I would do something I felt would push them away. It usually worked. Then I would turn around and blame them. It’s interesting how that works right? Have you ever heard the phrase, “hurt people hurt people?” They do. I was hurt. I couldn’t let go of the internal pain and to this day, I still struggle from time to time. I was afraid of letting people in. I was afraid to allow them to know who I really was – a messed up individual who needed help. On the outside, I put on this mask and went out into the world being whoever I thought everyone else wanted me to be. On the inside, I was dying. To this day, I am still learning more and more that it isn’t meant for us to chase titles so the world will see us. God already sees us. His definition of “success” is far different from the world’s definition of it.
Let Go, Drink Water, and Get Moving
Today, we talked about how to begin the journey. Everyone is on a journey. It may look a little different, but we are all on it. This week's call discussed letting go of regret, walking 4 times per week for 20-30 minutes, and drinking water. This is where we have to begin. We have to let go of our limiting beliefs. We have to be willing to accept compliments. We have to allow ourselves to let go of the past in order to truly appreciate the future. It starts here. Thank you to Brian and Jodi for joining me tonight and for allowing me to be a part of their journeys. Together we rise! Together, we can do more! It's about encouraging, supporting, and empowering each other to get to the next level! To invite others to join the Wellness Accountability Group inside Convene Communities, have them go to
Weekly Experiences - 3/3/22
There is nothing in life we can't do once we BELIEVE we can do them. The only person we have to convince is ourselves.
Discipline Must Take Over When Motivation Fails Us...and Motivation WILL Fail Us
This week, we talked about weekly wins and the importance of allowing our why to be what brings us through each day. We must lead everything we do with passion. This keep our minds from being able to take us out. It keeps us from giving up. It keeps us from not being able to reach our goals. Discipline must take over. Motivation will fail us 100% of the time. Great talk tonight! Make sure you join in the discussion!
Spiritual Awakening Ministries - Just Begin
1 John 2:15-16 says, “Do not love the world or anything in the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – comes not from the Father but from the world.”
Spiritual Awakening Ministries - Believe, Be Patient, and Wait for the Breakthrough
Today, we are discussing breakthroughs, blessings, and that one word we all struggle with (besides faith) - patience.
Spiritual Awakening Ministries - Operating in the Unforced Rhythms of Grace
Today, we are discussing operating in the unforced rhythms of grace and why it becomes more important as time goes on to learn how to let go of pride and come to the Lord - not just in times of need, but also in order to thank Him for what He gives us so freely.
Past Episode Breaking Barriers Now with Annette Pearson - Season 3, Episode 1
People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or both. It could be a temporary season or a lifelong season, but no matter what, it is for something. I met Annette Pearson through Social Media. When I heard her story, I knew I wanted to have her on the show. It was the perfect way to start the new season. Annette is a published author, with her book, Finding Strength in the Dark.
How to Start Tracking Your Foods for Beginners
One of the main reasons keeping a food diary is so useful is people aren’t great at remembering or estimating what and how much they’ve eaten. When you aren't keeping track of your food intake, it can be easy to overeat and often takes longer to reach your goals. In fact, research shows keeping a food diary is one of the most effective weight-loss strategies out there. Tracking consistently is proven to help you reach your goals. It helps you be more mindful of what and how much you’re taking in and how it all affects your body. The more you practice this new habit, the better able you are to become disciplined and improve your health long-term. Nutrition has to be sustainable, a lifestyle, and be a priority in your life. This is the only way you will stick to it. My goal is to do whatever I can to help you stick to it! One day at a time. It's a marathon, not a sprint, and over time, it will all get easier. I am proof of this. Be willing to take the first step and see what can happen once you become consistent. If you have any questions, make sure you use the "Discussion Board" to ask them.
Week 5 - Regulating Blood Pressure Naturally
Having high blood pressure can be hereditary, but it also can be maintained naturally through eating better, exercising daily, drinking enough water, and keeping stress levels as low as possible. This video goes over tips to help you do all of the above! If you know anyone who would gain value from this information, please share this group with them. Thank you for being here!
Why God Made Us - Everything He Made Has a Purpose
The thoughts I share here are personal things that I bring to God. Some are about life, some are about family, friends, etc. I talk about these things to God because I know He understands. I have learned that bringing our thoughts to people (especially those involved) isn't always in our best interest. God is always here to listen without judgment. The more I talk to God, the less my emotions get the best of me. It's not perfect, but as we all are, I am a work in progress. This experience talks about a day I had as a parent. Can you relate?

Say Yes to Happiness, Say No to Overwhelm - People Pleasers Beware
Are you a people pleaser? Merriam-Webster defines this as “someone or something that pleases or wants to please people; often: a person who has an emotional need to please others often at the expense of his or her own needs or desires” ( I am habitually a people pleaser. Moreover, I will often sacrifice my and my family's well-being to help or “please” others. I want to be liked. I want to feel like I have a purpose. I am searching for something that I have been missing. If this sounds familiar, I encourage you to take this experience.

Protein is King
This experience gives you recipes that will help you reach your protein goals. Why is protein essential? Protein is the build-up of amino acids in the body. It is an ESSENTIAL macronutrient the body must have to function correctly. It helps with brain function, hormonal balance, and immunity! Every cell in the human body is made up of protein. Did you know that? EVERY SINGLE CELL. We have millions of cells in our bodies that all have specific functions. If we are depriving those cells of vital nutrients, how are these machines we have been given to operate (our bodies) going to be able to operate optimally? It simply won’t happen.
