I am a daughter of the King of Kings. My identity is rooted in Christ. My identity is not in my job, looks, sporting accomplishments, money, body size, or anything else, it is in Him alone. I married the love of my life, Ben, on August 3, 2013 and I am loving our life together! We have two dogs: A Yorkie named Dash and a Boxer named Royal. I graduated from THE University of Oklahoma, with a degree in Health and Exercise Science. I am a Physical Education Teacher and a Personal Trainer: NSCA-CPT. I LOVE to run, shop, and eat! My closet mostly consists of workout clothes, with a small section dedicated to normal clothes.

I love to run and compete in road races. I ran track and played basketball in high school and started road racing in 2009 and fell in love! Half marathons are my favorite distance to run. I love the feeling I get when I finish a race and cross that finish line and I know that I accomplished what I set out to do. When I set a PR, I am on cloud 9 all day long. No matter what you are doing, I think it is important to set goals so you have something to work towards.

“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself.” 1 Corinthians 6:19 I believe you should treat your body like a temple, you only get one, so you should take care of the body that God gave you!
