ADVENT /ˈadˌvent/. The arrival of a notable person, thing, or event. The first season of the Christian church year, leading up to Christmas and including the four preceding Sundays. The coming of Christ.
Revelation Wellness®: A Fitness Ministry designed to use fitness/wellness as a tool to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world with the mission to first Love God… Get Healthy… Be Whole… And Love Others. This ministry trains and certifies instructors all over the world whose calling aligns with this mission (Matthew 28:16-20) All Certified Revelation Wellness® Instructors help people connect back to their hearts (feelings), minds (thoughts) and souls (who they were uniquely designed to be, their bodies included) so they may love God with all their strength.
For the first time, at 20-years-old, I took a microphone headset, stepped on a platform at the University of Tennessee and taught my first hi/lo Aerobics class. Yep, my high-top Reeboks when to work on that stage. Leading college students in exercise on a regular basis. This set the stage for now a life-long journey with fitness. And if you know my story, you know that the Lord actually drew me BACK to Himself through the modality of fitness at a small local church. (much love Beechgrove!)
However, fitness did diligence to pull my heart away from Him at times, too. Making an idol of my goals in stead of my God. Spending years underfed and obsessive. Literally running my body into the ground to the point of hormonal imbalance, mild bone loss and the need professional oversight.
But God is GOOD. Over time God has REDEEMED and RESTORED my view of wellness and how He intended fitness to be used in my life. And in the lives of others! This healing journey eventually led me to Revelation Wellness. I ALWAYS knew my heart came alive to Christ when I moved my body and NOW I understand WHY!
SO AFTER 12 WEEKS OF EXTENSIVE TRAINING AND A FOUR DAY VIRTUAL INTENSIVE RETREAT…. I have successfully PASSED my Revelation Wellness Instructor Exam and I am now a Certified Revelation Wellness® Instructor and Certified Wellness Revelation Facilitator!
(Picture me….. Dancing! Hands raised!! Whooo hooo! Confetti!)
And isn’t it JUST LIKE JESUS to birth an idea in my heart RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE?!
And guess who is invited?!? YOU! YOU! YOU!
I have always loved Advent. It’s just really the best. Each year I can not WAIT to dust off my favorite Advent devotionals and readings, lighting the weekly candles and anticipating the birth of Jesus and all the season brings.
But what if!?…. What if you and I combined the season of Advent with the gift of moving our bodies, engaging our hearts and creating a community around the two? Sounds amazing, right!?
Well, that is EXACTY what we are doing! Drum roll!….

Oh friends! I am so expectant! The Lord is doing a GOOD WORK here! I know that He has something for you in this series if you decide to join! Our goal is NOT to lose weight. Our goal is NOT six pack abs or making gains in muscle mass! If you do, then great. Bonus.
Our goal is to engage our hearts and move our bodies in WORSHIP this Advent. To open God’s Word and integrate body, soul, mind and spirit for a new and refreshing experience for your holiday.
And like Mary, we want to know Jesus, hear from Him, sit at his feet and “choose what is better” this Christmas and every single day thereafter. (Luke 10:42)
Love to you all! I am excited!
Hi Becky! I LOVE this idea the Lord has given you! I’m in a rut, and I’d love to join, but I’m curious about how long the workouts will be. I workout every morning before school, but I have a max of 30 minutes. If I can make it work in my schedule, I’m in! Mindy
