The first time I did one of her workouts it ended in tears.
Not from pain.
But from entering God's presence in worship.
Who would have known worship and workouts could go hand-in-hand?
This week's guest, Alisa Keeton, has revolutionized how I see fitness. Instead of pursuing a number on the scale, she has taught me to exercise from a position of love. To start with how loved I am and allow God's love to draw me into health and wholeness. Love > Fear.
Fear is a great motivator but a terrible transformer.
In this episode, Alisa gives the backstory of how God directed her steps to start "Revelation Wellness" (a story I had never heard!). She also shares how a broken foot led her to create my favorite podcast. I'm giddy to share this resource with you. In her 30 minute podcast episodes, Alisa talks you through a workout (cardio of your choice) and speaks God's truth over you, all while listening to worship music. Incredible.
