Changes

Since my life has changed sooooo much in the last year and a half, I updated the “My Story” page. I thought I would share it here with you. So, here goes….

My story is long. It is complex. It is filled with winding roads. It has lots of pain. It is unexpected. It is broken. Yet, it is so beautiful.

I am a woman who has struggled with infertility and can’t have her own biological kids. I am a foster-adopt mom of a sibling set of 3 who officially became ours this past August. Biological or not, they are not second best. They are our children, as though I gave birth to them myself.

I am a wife to a man that is truly my better half. I am a pastor’s wife. I love people deeply. I long to see myself and others continue to grow.

I am a person who has struggled with weight this past year and a half…partially due to some medicine that has this not so lovely side effect, and partially due to the extreme stress hormones of going from 0 to 3 children in the course of one day. I tried everything. Nothing worked. I was about to give up and then I found Beachbody, which changed me not only on the outside, but also on the inside.

I am a Beachbody coach. I get to help people become healthy. I get to connect with other people who have had my same struggles. I get to offer hope to people who have wanted to give up. I get to share my own strengths and weakness and inspire people.

I am an ESFP on the Meyers Briggs personality test. If you know anything about that, you know it means I love creating things. I see beauty where others may not. I love taking something that is thought of as useless or trash and using creativity to make it into something beautiful. I particularly love spreading beauty throughout our home…whether that be in the form of food, crafts, or DIY projects.

This is my story…and these are all things that you will see me write about.

I appreciate you all so much!

Lori
