I’m so excited to introduce you to my friend Jane!
Jane Reed Henson is an artist, author and photographer who loves life and really loves Jesus. She delights in sharing her journey of spiritual healing through different aspects of art and writing. Her concept that living painterly, embracing the brushstrokes of life, allows for a freedom like no other has truly given her the strength to live life fully while following God’s great design for her life. She is the creator of the “Painterly Living Workshops”.
Jane is also a foster adoptive mom who advocates for the unconditional love foster children are so deeply in need of. In her latest book, Beyond Expectations, Jane shows the value and the ability we all have within ourselves to love and transform the lives of others through letting go of our expectations of them and seeing them through God’s eyes.
Jane has authored Women of God Live Redeemed, Living Blessed and her cookbook, Simple Quinoa. Her first release “Blessed With MS” is currently in a review and editing process as she rewrites this memoir from a new perspective. Jane is also penning a new book, The Art of Painterly Living, full of soulful spiritual healing though the use of art to be released soon! She spends her days following whatever calling God places in front of her. Some days she paints, others she writes and some she looks through the lens of her camera and captures whatever God places in her day.
She considers herself a free spirit of sorts. She freely follows the guidance of the Holy Spirit and fully embraces wherever she is led.
All great paintings require restoration over time. Some of the greatest earthly paintings of all time have had restoration work done. Even the Sistine Chapel underwent a cleaning and restoration in order to get centuries of dust and candle soot off its walls and ceiling. As a newborn we are a blank canvas. Through the years we are covered with our own dust and soot. These come in the form of hurts, losses, let downs and broken relationships. At times we can be covered so deeply in suffering that the dust is caked on and it is hard to restore us to the glory we are meant to be. Just as a restoration artist has to recognize and know the design of the original artist in order to restore, we cannot be restored until we accept and recognize God’s design for us.
I’m so excited for you to meet Amia Freeman! She is the founder of inneractivefitclub.net and @inneractivefit on Instagram. She is awesome!! (That is a lot of exclamation points so you know I am really excited!!)

Amia is inspired to promote and practice diverse health and fitness programs to keep clients motivated, minimize plateaus, and to increase spiritual, physical, and mental strength.

On the Great Big YES! podcast, I like to get behind all of the “what do you do” questions and find out more about “who you are”. I’m especially excited that in this conversation, you get to hear her heart. I love that she courageously shares her faith journey and talks about her childhood and how her faith has formed over the years. We talk about family and church and our kids and red birds and so much more!
Amia is authentic and honest and inspiring. She speaks truth with humor and grace. Listen in and then head over to her website and give her a follow on Instagram! She will be your new best friend!
Woo-hoo!! We have a new podcast!! Gosh, I’ve really missed this.
Y’all know how much I love combining faith with fitness, right? And how much I love a program for weight loss or cooking light or moving your asana….you get the point. I’m all about the new book, the fresh plan, the new year’s promise. But then I find myself on this crazy train of up and down, lose and gain, just right, not enough, too much. Maybe you have been there? Well our first guest addresses this and tells us how she came to the point where she said ENOUGH to all of that and now lives in freedom and wellness. I love her voice of encouragement!
I am so excited to introduce you to Kara Osborne, the founder of Wellness Witness. Kara is a wife, mother, fitness instructor, counselor, cancer survivor, coach and prayer warrior. She truly is a “Body on Mission”!
I met Kara at a retreat. She was there with Revelation Wellness and I was there with Holy Yoga and we had the chance to pray together. It was such a beautiful exchange. Since then I have been following her on social media and loving all the stuff she puts out there. She is gifted for sure. I love her heart to encourage others and her enthusiasm and love for the Lord. I also love her southern accent and authenticity. What a delight!
A Great Big THANKS goes out to Kara for REVving us up again for this new string of podcasts! (See what I did there?) #grateful
