NEW PODCAST! Kara Osborne, Wellness Witness

 

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

Talking with Alisa Keeton – founder of Revelation Wellness

 

I’m excited to share my conversation with Alisa Keeton here on the podcast!  She is an amazing leader, filled with energy and on fire for the Lord! She is the founder of Revelation Wellness which you can find at www.revelationwellness.org where they train up disciples to share the Word of God through fitness. She also has a podcast on iTunes called “Reving the Word”. She is writing a book! AND leading “Clean Hearting Challenge” which is a 30 day FAITH then food and fitness challenge!

I met Alisa through my Holy Yoga training.  Revelation Wellness and Holy Yoga have held joint retreats for the past few years in Arizona.  Alisa was actually the person who “evaluated” my first Holy Yoga teaching experience when I was on retreat. From day one, she has been dropping Bible bombs and teaching and preaching to me, around me and to others that I love.  She is a blessing!

In our conversation, we talked about when she first heard God’s calling.  We discussed what she does if she feels doubt or sadness creeping in. We talked about grace and Jesus and fear and “Gospel goggles”.  She inspires and encourages.  You don’t want to miss this!

Chatting with Brooke Boon – Founder of Holy Yoga!

 

Today on the podcast, I’m talking to Brooke Boon.  Brooke is the founder of Holy Yoga.  Holy Yoga is an international ministry and is having it’s 10 year anniversary this fall! Holy Yoga exists to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth through the modality of yoga. I am a trained Holy Yoga teacher and I’ve gone through several of their training programs and they are amazing!

I’m excited to share our conversation with you!  Brooke is a lover of the Word and she is a gifted Bible teacher. She is filled with a love of the Lord and a true understanding of grace borne of her own experience.  Brooke is honest and authentic and her words inspire and encourage many! She is my friend and one of the people who has influenced my walk with the Lord greatly.  I’m so grateful Brooke said YES! to her calling because her YES! directly impacted my life and journey with God.
