Welcome to GODwod!
As a passionate and obsessed CrossFitter, I have spent a lot of time and effort working on my physical fitness. I recently renewed my relationship with God and realized that I needed to work on my spiritual fitness as well.
I do not profess to being an expert Christian. Far from it. I cannot quote Bible verses off the top of my head, and I fall short everyday at being a so-called “good Christian.” What does that even mean?
I do not judge those of other religions (or no religion) as I find religion to be deeply personal to the individual. I am not trying to convert you, but if my words help you or inspire you to seek God, then AWESOME!
I also do not profess to being a good writer. I have a legal background so yeah, sometimes my writing is too long and a little boring. I have recently learned that I am especially bad at writing all “Christian-ish.” But I do find writing to be a cathartic process that allows me to organize and understand my thoughts which is my purpose for starting this blog.
Here’s what I am- a 42-year-old wife, mother of two boys, CrossFit gym owner, and reborn Christian living in Auburn, Alabama (not necessarily in that order!). These are the things that define me and that I hope to share in this blog.
In CrossFit, we have the “workout of the day,” or the WOD. GODwod* is my reminder to daily work on my relationship with God.
*GODwod is also the name of a small group that my friend, Cope, and I have started for CrossFitters in the Auburn/ Opelika area to gather for a devotional and WOD. We’ve been taking a break for the Summer but will be back on it beginning Saturday, September 12th. We will meet every other Saturday at 7:30 am at ALL IN CrossFit. Feel free to join us!
