“I was saved at age five because I didn’t want to go to Hell.”
My story begins, not too different from many other people. I was saved at age five because I didn’t want to go to Hell. It wasn’t until I went to Camp Harlow at age 12 that I realized how desperately I needed a Savior, not just fire insurance. Since that time it has been an on-going growing relationship.
I have had many circumstances in my life that have helped mold my faith. My parents divorced, my dad was a double amputee, my step mom died of diabetes, my step dad died of brain cancer, my first born son was diagnosed with Autism, and extreme weight gain and then gastric bypass. After losing the weight I opened a fitness franchise and became the leading developer in the nation for our franchise, all while a husband and three kids tried to keep up with me. One thing is for sure, I never would have made it through without a loving Savior to lean on.
My approach is really simple.
You can laugh or cry, or do both at the same time. But in the end I will trust God to mold me into the woman He wants me to be. My job is to share with women my experiences and teach you how to be more than your circumstances. Humor has always been a big part of my life. I believe God has given me a unique outlook on everyday life situations. I like to laugh and I use humor to get the message across. God is sufficient! God wants us to live life abundantly and never stop talking about it.
“I wish that growing up in a Christian home was not looked at as a hum-drum testimony. The fact that you grow up in a Christian home or become a Christian later in life doesn’t mean that you are immune to problems or trial with God.”
Together the Lord and I have:
- taken the journey of extreme weight loss
- turned weight loss into a fitness career
- given me the grace to raise an autistic child
- transform an ordinary life into something extraordinary
- help others see God as real and relevant
