What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

One of the hardest challenges of life is saying no to foods that are unhealthy for you. Sometimes, resisting food temptations can feel like a daily battle. 

I bet you know what you should and should not be eating, but you just can’t do it on a consistent basis for some reason. Why is this so hard?!

In this episode, I'm going teach you:

  • exactly what healthy eating should look like (so there's not doubt in your mind),
  • we'll chat about splurging vs. cheating,
  • and then we'll unearth the ugliness of "temptations".


Let's also take a look at the two most prominent instances in Scripture that deal with temptations and how the two different individuals handled them. In the end, you'll walk away with some practical tools that you can implement right away to manage your cravings better, and some spiritual guidance to battle the temptations better. 

​Resources from this episode:

  • Temptation (latin - temptare): the desire to do something, especially something wrong or unwise... a temptation is a thing or a course of action that’s attractive.
  • Genesis 3:1-7 and Luke 4:1-4
  • 1 John 2:15-17

1. Cherie asked: (35:06) "How do I eat the right amount at meal/snack times?"

2. Jasmine asked: (38:24) "How do I figure out how much protein I should eat?"
