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.

"Just getting started is so overwhelming!"...

"I know I really should get my act together."...

"Every time I start something I end up giving up soon after!" 

If you've ever said any of these things, this episode is for you! I have spent years helping my clients get the ball rolling with a fitness and nutrition routine, so I know what works and what doesn't work when you're just beginning. 

You'll dive into these inspiring Bible verses with me that will give you strength and courage as you begin:

  • 1 Chronicles 28:20
  • 1 Corinthians 16:13 (also read in the MSG version)
  • Hebrews 11 and 12


Also, learn the different stages of change that we go through as we create a new habit, and why so many of us get stuck thinking about it for too long. Megan and her co-host Scott will also chat about the idea of "change ONE thing" vs. "change all the things" and why that's so important for habit longevity and preventing overwhelm. 

your questions answered!

At the end of the episode I'm answering YOUR questions!

  • Fitness: "How can I improve my posture throughout the day?" (27:35)
  • Food: "If I'm trying to see progress, should I be watching how much fruit I'm eating?" (30:40)
  • Faith: "I've been emotionally and mentally overwhelmed lately, and have let my habits slide. How do I know if I need some grace or just a kick in the pants?" (33:02)
