The Fit thru Faith Story
So those are some quick bullets, but what you really need to know is that I have a FIRE deep down in my belly for you - and that it is MY CALL and my purpose to be a bridge to your break-thru in your whole body health.
A little over 10 years ago, I was in a rocky place. It was a time in my life when I felt very disconnected. I was working in a relatively toxic environment in the Entertainment Industry. I had been married for just under 2 years, and our attempts to have children weren't successful. I felt lost and depleted.
So I was led to start taking these "faith walks." I reflected on the seven realities from Henry Blackaby's awesome book, "Experiencing God" , which in a nutshell for me is "see where God is at work and join Him in that work."
I took the earbuds out and had one intentional mission to hear a word from that still small voice, to hear a word with some direction for my life, some PURPOSE.
Now I'm not one of those people that has an open chat-line with Most High. It used to bug me a little when my friends or husband would say all the time, the "Lord (or Holy Spirit) told me" to do this or that, because I had crickets on the main line.
But I was determined. I was like Jacob. I wasn't going to stop walking and seeking until I was blessed with some direction.
Well, it took MANY MILES, trust and believe, but when He spoke, it was CLEAR. “My people are dying!” Yes – He was clear, but I wasn’t clear what I was supposed to do about it.
But God is God. I asked and He answered and began to pour the vision in me for Fit thru Faith. Over the past decade, Fit thru Faith has been in the refiner's fire. I am so excited to partner with you with practical tools programs, coaching and teaching to help you release excess weight and attain your service size body TM - to be of greatest service to God and to the world.
