Community Information

Welcome to the Jodi Watkins Life and Health Community

Home of Jodi's Businesses, Mentorship Programs, Podcast, and Accountability Groups:

2BEpic Fitness and Nutrition, LLC (Online Coaching Studio and Mentorship Est July 2017)

Lady J Consulting (Est Jan 2022)

J Marie Realty, LLC (Est March 2022)

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, and 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 journey of healing is we often don't know where to begin. This was the case for me. This is why I finally sought help. 

I am here to tell you that healing is necessary to the addiction recovery process. Healing lessens misery. We must take off the mask and begin this process to become fulfilled and to 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. I don't want you to have to get where I was before I finally submitted. 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 in the morning.

Here, you will learn how 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 the things in life 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.

Spiritual Awakening Ministries were placed in my heart in 2020. 

BUT just as I thought I was doing well with the Lord, the devil came in. 

It took me quite some time to bring this back, but I finally realized I was NOT going to allow the devil to pull me back from helping more people. 

I am doing a 5 AM EST prayer call Monday-Friday (sometimes a few minutes later) live on the "JodiWatkinsInspires" Instagram page and posting them on the Jodi Watkins Inspires YouTube Channel under the "Spiritual Awakening Ministries" Playlist. I pray the calls to remind you that you are not alone and God is always with us. We are His children. 

I also have a couple of private groups in here for a specific group of people. These groups are private, invite-only for the 2BEpic coaches and the members of Amazing Life Church here in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Looking forward to building this community more with you! 

Your coach and friend,

Spiritual Awakening Ministries
In 2019, I embarked on a journey like I never could have imagined. I realized that no matter how much I thought I was in control, I truly wasn't. I hit a brick wall. It felt like everything was just crashing in. What I realized is that even though God was always with me, I wasn't truly with Him. I was a sinner. I failed at so many things. I didn't show up for others like I wanted to. All along, all I had to do was submit. In everything I do, I share the experiences I went through with others. My journey began before I made the decision to get baptized again. It began the day I finally dropped to my knees and submitted my life to the Lord. I got baptized a couple months later and began the renewal phase. I am perfectly imperfect. I am flawed and I have things about myself I am not proud of. Nevertheless, knowing God isn't judging any of us gives me more internally than I have ever had. I no longer have to rely on myself and neither do you. This group is for anyone who is ready to embark on a journey of renewal. Once we move out the way and allow God into our lives wholly, we are able to become amazed at the path He will lead us down. While I felt compelled to start a ministry quite some time ago, I didn't feel confident enough in my own journey with the Lord to actually do it. Here's what I can say about that: just as I do with my health and life coaching, the Lord meets me where I am and gives me exactly what I need. This is a ministry. It's not a place where you have to be perfect. It's a place where you are free to come as you are. You can worship with us and pray with us. You can have us pray for you. This is a safe place and we put faith over fear each and every day. This is a place where faith-based entrepreneurs can come and share experiences. This is a place where we support and grow one another through what the Lord has given us. This is not a place for pride and ego. This is a place for transparency and vulnerability. This is a place where God will take you and transform you if you allow Him to. This is where you belong. Thank you for being here.

Breaking Barriers Now Podcast
This show represents the mission I am on and that is to save lives.

I believe we all have powerful stories that can impact generations beyond us. It's time to leave a legacy and spread some positivity into the world! Let's break barriers together!

Why God Made Us - Everything He Made Has a Purpose
In the Writing to Heal Workshop inside the Bookshelves and Inkwells Community, I go over how important free-writing and not overanalyzing is. The thoughts I share here are personal things that I bring to God. Some are about life, some are about family, some are about friends, etc. I talk about these things to God because I know He understands. I have learned the hard way that bringing our thoughts to people (especially the people 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?
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!
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?

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!

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.
Women of Faith Day 1
Today's video is the first of many, where we will come together and support/encourage one another to live the life we are meant to live. Thank you for being here! 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!
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!
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.
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.
