Try these exercises for a strong core!
Demonstrated by Allison Galbreath and Paige Nenstiel

Develop a well balanced core by completing exercises that increase the strength of the abdominals, the obliques (side rotational abs), the lower abs, the lower back and the glutes. Complete a variety of exercises rather than just completing situps or crunches alone.
Start face up on a mat, with knees bent and feet on the floor.

 Bring fingertips to temples, elbows pulling wide. Lift the head, neck and shoulders up off the mat, keeping the head tucked towards the chest.

Core should be braced.

Lower down with control.
Knee Lift
Start face up on a mat, with knees bent and feet on the floor.

Keeping the core braced and back pressing towards the floor, lift the knees up to tabletop.

Lower the knees back down, making sure to not let the back arch. 
Bicycle Twist
Start lying down, face up on a mat.
Knees are in tabletop, stacked above the hips.

Bring fingertips to temple and crunch the head up. Drop the right foot to the floor and twist towards the left leg.

Make sure to aim the right shoulder to the knee, not the elbows.
Bring it back to center and switch sides. 

Try both the bent knee and straight leg options for variety.
Plank Jacks
Begin in a plank position: hands under shoulders, legs long, core braced and back long and level.

Keeping the torso steady, jump the legs wide and then back to the center.

Repeat under the form begins to fail, rest and then repeat.

This is great for developing strong posture.
To increase glutes (butt) strength, begin with back on the floor, knees bent, feet near the butt and arms by the side.

Lift the hips and squeeze the glutes and hold for several counts.

Body weight is balanced between the feet and the shoulders (not on the neck).

Drive the hips toward the ceiling to stretch the muscles of the front of the pelvis.

God is ALWAYS there for us!

Isaiah 40:28-31 KJV

“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
