Do you walk into church and ask yourself, “why are there so many unhealthy people walking around in here?!” Do you desire to make a difference in your congregation or town – teaching biblical principles God has laid out for centuries about best practices for health and wellness?
Recent studies are finding that Evangelical Christians are the most obese religious group in America today. Of that, the Southern Baptist denomination (the largest denomination in today’s protestant church) ranks worst in healthy living. This concerns us a great deal. We want to be leaders in the charge to improve the health and wellness of the typical Christian.
In the bible, Christians are clearly called to take care of God’s temple – our bodies (see 1 Corinthians 16:19-20). And, it’s not for Christians alone – the old testament Hebrew nation had detailed outlines of how God would want them to live and eat. Our aim is the encourage others by sharing our personal walk through this process.
We are NOT doctors or nutritionists. We are a husband and wife with 3 children living in the suburbs of Nashville, TN. We have great information to share about our personal experiences in the area of wellness. We aim to provide lots of interviews with qualified fitness and wellness experts throughout this website and podcast. Our sole purpose is to help others in their wellness journey with great resources, contacts, information, inspiration and motivation to change lives. We want to impact the next generation of believers in Christ to be stronger, fitter and livelier so that the full Gospel of Jesus Christ can be preached to it’s fullness – by word and example!
