Today, Heather speaks to us about the impact Trinity Fitness has had on her and her family’s life, and her current Bible study.
Inspiring biblical passage of the moment: I am currently studying the People of the Promised Land through Bible Study Fellowship, and the book of Joshua is fascinating to me!
Spiritual growth focus at the moment: I would love to have a greater understanding of the Old Testament.
Profession: Stay-at-home mom and Beautycounter consultant.
A one sentence bio of yourself: Christ-follower, wife, mother, daughter and friend who loves football, the beach, and as much Mexican food as I can stuff into my belly.
When did you first encounter God and how did you encounter Him? I was blessed to be raised in the church from a very young age and recall many wonderful times at camp where I felt so close to God; it was as if He was physically there with us.
What has helped you grow spiritually in this season? My family and I joined a local Christian, faith-based gym call Trinity Fitness that has strengthened not only our physical bodies but our relationships with Christ.
Just read/currently reading (and what has it taught you?): I wish I had more time to read! Right now I am working on the BSF study I mentioned above so I’m mostly reading the Bible and nothing much else.
Top three essentials: Jesus, coffee, air conditioning (we’re in FL, it’s always hot, here).
How did God speak to you recently? I recently felt God pushing me towards becoming a trainer at Trinity Fitness, and my husband and I actually just completed our certification. When we train, we not only help with exercises, but we pray for the warriors (that is what we call the participants) and give a <5 minute devotion.
“When we train, we not only help with exercises but we pray for the warriors.”
