In order to change the fruit, you have to change the root.

The human body is made up of three parts - Spirit, Soul and body. (1 Thessalonians 5:23)

We often try to fix only those physical symptoms or change the way we think when addressing long-healing in our lives; but what about dealing with sin? Trauma from past experiences that were never healed properly can also cause deep wounds on your spiritual wellbeing as well!

Spirit wounds come from three different sources - sin (something wrong we've done), trauma(amazingly tough thing which happens like an accident)and generational injustice; all these things pile up over time until we feel like our lives are out of control.

That’s why changes can be so hard to make long term, we have to change the ROOT of the problem. I struggled with major health issues for years, until I got to the root of the problem. I had wounds that needed to be healed. Once I was able to clean these areas up, I learned to walk in the righteousness that had already been won for me by Jesus on the cross and my life changed completely.

Wounds can cause strongholds in our lives that can keep us stuck, they can keep us sick,  cause us to sin, and abuse our bodies with alcohol or over eating unhealthy foods. They can cause negative emotions, they can cause trouble in relationships, financial struggles, and total chaos.

Some great books to get started on healing include:

Sozo: Saved, Healed and Delivered by Dawna DeSilva

The Power of Blessing by Kerry Kirkwood

Healing the Wounded Soul by Katie Souza

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against might powers in this dark world, againts evil spirits in heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

My name is Jen Bayer. I am a Wife, Mom to two boys, and Holistic Health Coach and the founder of Exalted Health.  I struggled for YEARS with body image issues, and chronic health issues. For over 30 years I tried every diet and fitness program available to try to finally "arrive" at a weight I thought would make me happy. The Lord started to speak to me about this area of my life years ago, and since then has brought so much freedom to my life. I have worn many different sizes over the years, and I feel more freedom now in a larger size than I ever did when I wore a smaller size.  I now rest in the fact that my value and worth comes from Christ alone. No number on the scale, no pants size or achievement can bring the peace and rest that He can.  I have been a business owner in the health and nutrition field since 2008. I have helped thousands of people transform their health, and their faith walk. My mission and greatest desire is to lead women to the cross, and in a deeper healing journey with Jesus. I have been trained in biblically sound unique methods to guide you in your healing process, and to teach you to walk in greater authority in Christ.
