A strong, healthy body (no matter what age!) equips us for our purpose, but the reality is exercise has to fit into our lives or we won't do it. Find your soulmate workout, be fit for life!

Your body is a temple. Don't let it live in a Pizza Hut! Feed it more God-made food and you'll kick cravings naturally without the guilt. Weight loss will be a happy side effect!

FOR the Christian single mom approaching the empty nest, who has spent her days providing, guiding, sacrificing, and loving the ones who count on her most - pressing pause on her own goals to help her kids achieve theirs...

YOU FEEL the weariness of raising a family on your own, the uncertainty of whether you’re doing it right, and you’re trying to fit everything in to a tight schedule and an even tighter budget. Taking care of our “temple” isn’t always easy, but my promise is to help you find strength in the struggle, so you can find your way back to taking care of YOU again – even in the midst of a busy life!

As a single mom, cancer survivor, and middle school teacher, I know the struggle is real. By offering faith-focused encouragement, with simple tools for integrating fitness and nutrition into everyday life, backed by proven programs done from your own home on your own time (and what’s finally worked for me) we’ll address the need to achieve your happy place of living and aging well.

Since I understand that being a mom is tough, and being both Mom AND Dad is exhausting (although it’s THE BEST job in the world!) but getting fit, healthy, happy, and whole can make all the difference.
