Interrupted Life

April 4, 2020

I’m a trainer. Trainers love fitness. Trainers love weights, and movement, and all things physical fitness. I love my gym. I am what they would call a bit of a gym rat. The gym has been home for nearly as long as I can remember. I have been attracted to physical fitness, healthy eating and muscle since my very early adolescence.

I have goals. I have routine, just like everyone else pursuing fitness. Just like everyone else, this whole COVID-19 thing interrupted those goals. It interrupted my routine— Interrupted life.

Rest & Digest

Rest & Digest

When we have too much norepinephrine in our system we are in “fight or flight” mode. This neurotransmitter inhibits digestion. Our gut needs to be at rest to digest.

Currently, with this quarantine and the corona virus (COVID-19), we are all a little bit in a state of perpetual flight or fight.

Instead, take some Continue reading

Because when you know that God has the whole world in His hands you don’t have to worry or be afraid.Many people are afraid to Continue reading

March 21, 2020

“Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control,[a] lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.“ 1 Corinthians 9:25-27

How we live today matters.

How we choose to respond matters. Adversity will shape you and shift you. Adversity will sift you. Will you be patient? Or will you cave to pettiness? Will Continue reading

Just Run With It!

Just Run...

Have you ever seen a child who had a toy in their hand and just ran and ran and ran and played with that toy in their hand? The toy was apart of everything they did. Do you know what you’re seeing when you see this because it is so much more than a child with a toy. You’re seeing a person in love. You’re seeing a kid who adores their toy. It is an object of their affection.

When my youngest child was two years old he always had Continue reading

About Me

Hello!

I do believe as we persevere through the unspoken difficulties in life we can find our voice and that voice can be used to help others take flight. I’m a lover of the pen and the ink I wield I hope lavishes encouragement on the minds, hearts and souls of others. Welcome to my home! I plan to use the space to make you feel comfortable, refreshed and blessed. My encouragement intended to help you find that better version of you that has been there all along. I am a writer of prose, poems, scriptural exhortations and all things fitness and nutrition. Mind. Body. Heart. Soul. It is all connected! So come in and make yourself at home. This is a Safe Haven and Refuge for others who have been broken, too.
