How do you write an “About” section?
I've attempted to do this several times. But really, what does it matter to you that I’m married, homeschool my boys, live in the suburbs, and have a background in design and engineering and a love and curiosity for discovering true health?
It doesn’t matter. Maybe it helps a little that we might have a few things in common, but so do the moms in your local mom group, and they are close enough to go have a glass of wine with or to be your workout buddy.
So what in the world would compel you to want to pay any attention to what I might have to say?
I believe it's because of what I believe to be true about YOU, rather than any special or not-so-special things about me.
So how about I tell you what it is I see in YOU…
I see someone who cares very deeply for their family. You are smart, ambitious, and incredibly capable. While your family is a major priority, you feel called to do something to make a difference in the world.
There’s some things that hold you back from the dreams and desires you’ve had – age, confidence, taking a risk, not knowing where or how to start, overwhelm.
I’m here to tell you – that calling you feel is so much more than just dreams and desires. They were planted in you for a divine purpose.
And the reason I’m here – my calling - is to remind you of that purpose, and to keep you focused on it.
One of ways I do that is by holding you accountable for taking care of your body. Because you will face significantly harder challenges in attempting to live out the calling on your life if you are bombarded by toxins and constantly struggling just to feel decent enough to get through your daily activities. If you are feeling sidelined by kiddos who are facing major challenges in their health and your new full-time job is helping them to be as functional as possible, I understand your struggle.
Friend, I’ve seen miracles – in my own life and the lives of so many others that began by choosing to put a priority on their own wellness. Saying yes to yourself by growing physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually.
These miracles are yours for the taking too. I’m going to be the witness of yours, and watch as you become the guide – the beacon of hope for countless others as you live out your calling in life.
I didn't arrive here easily though.
For most of my life, I have felt crippled inside my own body.... Even as I was learning how to integrate more holistic and “crunchy” habits, I have often struggled to get off the sidelines and participate in my own life. I've figured out a lot, and I have so much more to learn. I'm here to share my struggles and wins and miracles with you.
I've put together a "cliff's notes" version of the principles I've uncovered in my journey. In the members community, we dive deeper into each area.
