May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together-spirit, soul, and body-and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.  The One who called you is completely dependable.  If he said it, he'll do it! 

1 Thessalonians 23-24 MSG

I am a mother of five, a fitness coach, and former competitive bodybuilder.  My mission is to inspire a 360-degree toughness ... mind, body, and spirit.  I've trained hundreds of people about the powerful connection between thinking and fitness.  I love a hot cup of coffee, a good hard belly laugh, and God's Word ... preaching my first sermon when I was 15.
