Our Beloved is full of surprises! Both sweet and sometimes 'sour'. Meeting De at a local charity dinner was so lovely and getting to know her faith and work in the world over the past year, was a joy. I decided to partner with Faithfueled Mom to help heal my pelvic floor weakness and tight hips.
One cannot even imagine the healing possible as these precious bodies release the pain that has been intelligently stored (in my case the fascia). De knows her stuff! We foam-rolled trauma right out of my thigh...together. Knowing that I am not alone when the old emotions surface is the key. Not only is my sweet Jesus with me in the turmoil co-suffering but He's the wave, the invitation to this deep sanctification of my Soul. Without a relationship with God, the 'sour' would be untenable. But conscious suffering is the way to be fully human and allow my 16-year-old self to let go of her story. In this way, the body is freer, and more regulated to feel safe in the world and to embrace strength where there is tension.
Tension is a sign of weakness and weakness is a sign of a need for the Holy Spirit to fortify.
I recommend working with De because of her knowledge sure, but mostly because of her heart for her clients.
I think Coach De is a great resource to helping you meet your overall wellness and health goals. Coach De has a unique technique that brings your walk with Christ and your working on your health altogether. Helping us to be mindful that over temples are truly a sacrifice unto the Lord
The amount of information and various learning points on nutrition and fitness. The need to be consistent and encouragement to push forward.
I loved receiving daily devotionals, mantras, and prayers. I loved that i could exercise at home and get a good sweat. I loved that my daughter also exercises with me.
Incorporating Gods Word with fitness! I liked the calendar feature where I could see what would be coming up. I app was really cool! I liked that all I needed was my phone and equipment and I could workout from wherever! I also really appreciate the meal prep help and recipe suggestions!
I liked the clear manner the exercises were explained and how we are instructed to do based on our experience/level. Seeing what was needed to do each day with in app tracking of completion was a plus. I struggled with how to do the timing⏱ and recording of weights and reps in the beginning so it might be helpful to have a video explaining how the app works prior to the start of program. De was very accessible through the app and responsive to questions in a timely manner. The daily devotional and prayers were very good. They were specific and help to bring focus and clarity to specific areas that helped increase our knowledge and encouraged us to hang in there. The meal planning part was the icing on the cake. The shopping list prior to the week was very helpful. Though I was not successful due to my crazy busy life, De always responded to me with a spirit of love and extended grace as well as encouraged me to do the same with myself. I am determined to complete this program and do it again.
The community was great this time around. There were so many more pre-recorded videos which made working out so easy for me. I did say the workouts were long however that’s just due to limited time in the morning. 45 minutes actually isn’t long in the big picture of the day.
The focus on health from the most important area, the spiritual one. I also liked how the workout difficulty increased gradually so it wouldn’t be so tough that I’d give up the first week.
De, this program was amazing. I feel like I’ve healed my relationship with exercise. Prior, I really felt like i didn’t like it or it was a chore if I wasn’t weightlifting heavy. I tend to say i HATE Bootcamp style exercises. This was not the case for me. One thing that did stick out to me was early on your messaging was more physical focused about making the body change and as the program progressed it was more about the spiritual change. I’d say start out with the spiritual stuff sooner. That was so powerful for me. I loved the Follow along videos and would love to have it with the resistance workouts. If you want to talk more about what i said I’m am open to it... love you girl!!
Bibles and Bootcamps helped me focus on my body from the inside out. The scriptures helped me to focus. Coach De made made it available. Jesus held me accountable.
