The Heart Behind HomeBodySoul:
HomeBodySoul is a lifestyle brand that embodies the values of living life well. Here at HomeBodySoul, we value balance, community, health, family, discipline, and joy. As a holistic living business and platform for women, we seek to encourage, inspire, and empower women to tenderly care for and mindfully cultivate their homes, their bodies, and their souls. HomeBodySoul seeks to bring healing, breed confidence, and motivate women in each and every season they find themselves in through fresh inspiration. Our goal is to help each woman design a life she loves; a life full of purpose, meaning, and joy so that she can impact and love herself, her family, community, and others more authentically and wholly. Our hope is that HomeBodySoul is a place where our homes, our wellness, and our stories can intersect.
HomeBodySoul is more than a coaching and personal training service. It’s a way of life. It’s intentional, slow living, finding value in how we care for and steward our homes, bodies, and souls.
As someone who grew up in an unhealthy home environment with an alcoholic father, I’ve seen the deep ways our home environments affect our bodies and our souls. I spent my childhood and teenage years being afraid of letting anyone in my home, fearful of what might be seen or judged. While no one walks out of a perfect home without blemishes or scars, I have found the importance of cultivating a healthy home because this is where our wellness is rooted. I saw first hand the scarring effect of hurtful words, the repercussions of hovering stress, and the perfect storm we women face when it comes to perfectionism, control, and worry. My desire is to come alongside of women and help them to step into their best life by learning how to care for themselves so they can better care for others. I personally know the stronghold perfectionism and the gripping desire for control that manifests into fear and anxiety can have on not only our bodies, but also on our hearts and deep within our souls. Let’s step out of these places of paralysis and into our best selves that walk in grace and confidence. My heart is for women to find what matters most to them and then intentionally make those matters a priority. By being intentional with our hearts and our time, we can build simplicity and meaning in and out of our homes and cultivate joy-filled families within healthy walls.
My approach to personal training is unique and authentic. While the world around us shouts that we need to look a certain way or attain a certain level of “fitness”, my heart and goal is to help women learn how to best use their bodies in the way they were designed. Of course, I desire to help women reach their health and fitness goals, but always through the lens of caring for one’s body as a temple that is not our own. Because our bodies are a gift, I help women learn how to best use this precious resource so that they can move well, engage with their family, and be able to serve others. It’s not about our size or even our fitness level. It’s about treating our bodies well, caring for them, and learning how to best utilize them for our purpose in life.
My story has informed how I view home, body, and soul. It’s through the lens of my story that I see the interconnectedness of these three vital life areas.
