It’s never too late to be who God cre- ated you to be. Unleash your potential. Love your journey.
Three and a half years ago, at almost age 45, my health began to seriously decline. Many health issues began to surface, then began to
spiral. That was my turning point. It was time to make a change once my family doctor wanted to start me on more medications. I refused that path, so I made the choice to take back control.
I was introduced to a pure, raw nutrition I take daily to this day, and began seeing and feel- ing healthier in a very short time. I lost almost
40 pounds and my body balanced the way God intended.
10 months prior to my first competition this
past August 2016, I joined my local gym for the first time in 30 years.
Being a proud mom of one son who is now grown with a successful music career, it was time to take care of me. The gym was intimidating, uncomfortable, and I felt unworthy to be there. But it didn’t stop me.
It was difficult at first, but I kept going back each day. Consistently every day, stepping out of my comfort zone. In four weeks, I started to see small changes. Hidden potential began to surface. Not only physically, but mentally and emotionally. I began to have self-confidence. Positive energy was emerging. I began to see God’s potential in me that I never knew I had. It had been hidden all these years.
