I am so excited that you are here! Most of you reading this have probably found me through my Facebook page, Fit for Worship. Many of you have been my friends since my very first blog “The Imperfect Housewife” or maybe since “Confessions over Coffee.” I recently made the switch to using my name instead of my latest domain “Fit for Worship Fitness.” It seems I go through seasons of writing, but the Lord has really impressed upon me to start writing again. Which was a happy “Yes!” from me. In case you are new, I am just going to use this post to introduce myself.
My name is Gail, (nice to meet you!) and I am a wife of 12 years this September, mother of 5 children (currently 9-5 years old), homeschooler, a Certified Revelation Wellness® Instructor and Weigh Less to Feed More® Facilitator!
As you can see, I wear many hats and have to delicately balance life. My bend is to over commit, feel overwhelmed, quit just about everything, and then start back up again. I know though, and God is working on my showing me how to balance life. It often means saying “No” to things that aren’t going to help fulfill the vision and goals of our family.
I’ve never considered myself a fitness buff, and still don’t, but through my Instructor Training, I have learned that life is about more than food and fitness. While we have to eat, I am (still) learning how to eat to live and not live to eat. I am learning to fuel my body with foods that are a good fuel that will give me energy and keep me going. I have never spent hours in the gym (with 5 kids…. Who has time for that??) but I am learning to take care of my physical body as an act of worship to God.
In my free time (insert laughter!) I like to read, crochet, write, and laminate everything that can be laminated. #nerd. I’m finding I actually enjoy gardening when before I thought I just killed everything so I gave up trying to grow anything!
I’m sure there is more I could tell you about me, but now it’s your turn! I would love to learn more about you and how you found Fit for Worship! You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as well!
