Josh and I have always held to the belief that we are all created for a purpose on this earth; of this we were certain, we just were not certain of the purpose that God had planned for us. I was born in Port Au Prince, Haiti, and spent the first few years of my life in the Rainbow of Love Orphanage. Life was challenging, but through Memier and Gladys, the two women who ran the orphanage and loved us, I knew, without a doubt, that there were always brighter days ahead. When I was five years old, I was adopted and brought to Walker, MN. Not only a tremendous change in climate and lifestyle, but also language, diet and customs, dictated that I needed to adapt quickly to a new normal…and failure was never an option.
When I was in ninth grade I met Josh, a senior, (gasp) and we both realized very early in our relationship that we would grow up, go to college, get married and have a family. They say that if you want to see God smile, tell him you have made plans. God smiled and apparently gave us His blessing. We did just that; grew up, finished school, got married and had four children. Our lives were good, but we knew, that if we listened to Him, they could be much better.
We began to listen closely, we began to read scripture closely, we began to pray, we continued to listen, and God began to guide our journey. Our lifestyle and business are built on the ideals of faith, family, food and fitness combined into a four fold philosophy that integrates all of these components. Health and wellness involves what we put into our bodies, our minds and our relationships; with our family, community and God. To this end, we have created Fit 4 Glory, a lifestyle of healthy eating, physical fitness, strengthening family bonds and a knowledge that “with God all things are possible”.
