Hello and Welcome!

I know you’re here because faith and fitness are important to you. I believe you’re ready to do fitness differently. If you’re like me, you want to live a fit and healthy life without it becoming your main focus. You’re finished with diets but you still want to feel good in your body. I get it, and I’ve created a framework that will show you what areas to focus on to feel good without dieting. When you do this, you’ll be free to live the life God has designed for you.

Thanks for stopping by. I’m Marsha. I’m a counselor and author, and I’m here to help you develop a sustainable healthy lifestyle so that you are free to enjoy your current season of life without diets and exercise plans but instead by implementing my Faith and Fitness Framework™.

Some of my backstory:

I’ve struggled with weight and body image since I was a young girl. I followed the Weight Watchers diet plan when I was in elementary school.  I was eating lettuce with salt on it and cans of tuna. I’ve cried WAY too many tears over a number on a scale. And it wasn’t that I was overweight.   It was just a complex that began way too early, and one I’ve struggled with forever.  In college, I toyed with binging and purging both with exercise and with laxatives. I’ve tried all the diets, pills, and quick fixes.

Having been a Christ follower since I was a little girl, I have given Him this struggle, taken it back, given it to Him, taken it back, and so on!

It’s the one thing that I know draws me to Him on a daily basis because I can’t do this alone.


Do you know the feeling?  Like you’re doing the right things but it’s just not working? Do you feel like it’s never enough?  Or if you reach one goal, there’s another waiting on the horizon? 

How I learned to combine faith and fitness:

When I turned 40, I read “Made to Crave,” and in it, the story of the Israelites is highlighted, and God told Moses “you have circled this mountain long enough, now turn north.” So at 40, I turned north!

This is not about a big transformation in my waistline but more importantly in my mind to be free to fully live the life Christ has for me.

I realized that my foundation of faith could be part of my fitness routine.  Actually, it had to be part of it.

Now I’m sharing what I’ve learned (and continue to learn) about faith and fitness.  I’m guiding and counseling other women to a fit and healthy lifestyle, both physically and spiritually with my Faith and Fitness Framework™.  I’m learning to appreciate the unique me and the unique needs of my body.

Now I help women break free from dieting and discover how to feel good in their body now so that they can live the life God designed for them at their current age and stage of life.  I can help you learn what makes you unique and how to find the right plan for you. Together we can live a fit life built on a firm foundation of faith.

It’s about finding your fit and being free to live it!
