I was overweight my WHOLE life. When I first met Wayne Burns, I weighed 316 pounds and had weighed over 300 pounds for about 20 years. I know what it is like to struggle for years AND years AND years. I know what it is like to think maybe this is just how it is going to be, BUT now I know what it is like to thrive in the boundaries of HIS truth. About 2 years into this journey, over 170 pounds were gone!! I am so thankful! I am enjoying living in ways that I never dreamed were possible! My heart is to allow God to use this journey however He desires, bringing Him glory! It is one of my greatest joys and my passion to share with others about our journey, where I was, where I am, how we got here, tools we used along the way and most importantly God’s beautiful truths that change everything. There is hope!!! HE is our HOPE!!! I love sharing that hope, continuing to dive deeply into His truths and into knowing Him, coming alongside others, encouraging, teaching, building community, journeying together, living, dreaming, thriving!!!!
