Can mountains really move? They can through prayer!

Can mountains really move? They can through prayer!
Have you ever felt like there was a mountain in front of you that there was no way possible you could get around or over it? Have you ever prayed so hard about something, not knowing how you would make it through? I have time and time again. Most often people relate this experience to finances,... Read more »

Faith and fitness, the perfect blend

Faith and fitness, the perfect blend
You can train the body, and you can do exercises for your mind. But, what I’ve found is that faith and fitness is the perfect blend. I didn’t always emphasize the spiritual aspect of diet, nutrition, and exercise. I mean, I loved God, but my focus on my “spirit man” was like a mint the... Read more »

Why are you mad at me about the Preachers of LA?

Why are you mad at me about the Preachers of LA?
I just don’t get it. When I blogged “5 Reasons Preachers of LA Shame the Church” never did I think that people would respond by being mad with me. But, I’m not surprised. That’s why there’s that old expression, “Don’t shoot the messenger,” because it’s easier to do just that. People want to attack me... Read more »

Stuck in a Rut? Three Simple Steps to Uplift Your Spirits

Stuck in a Rut? Three Simple Steps to Uplift Your Spirits
Every season, without fail, there’s a workout to help get your body in shape to match the weather. There’s the how-to-get-bikini-abs-for-summer workout, or the how-to-get-those-thighs-in-shape-for-leather-weather, and so on and so forth.  Partially practical. Interestingly intriguing. And may be mildly motivating for some, and wildly so for others–and that’s great. In a world where we have more... Read more »

Trained by hardship and discipline

Trained by hardship and discipline
As someone who’s done all kinds of fitness workouts and routines, nothing has been more difficult and beneficial than being trained by hardship and discipline. It’s not an actual workout anyone sets out to do either. At least I didn’t. I literally stumbled upon it in my Christian walk–pun intended. I, like many others, thought... Read more »

    Elana Anthony

    I am a wife and mother blessed to have six daughters who fill my home with love and laughter. My passion is writing and teaching, but most especially inspiring people to live healthy lives in my faith-filled fitness classes. My dream is to have my own faith and fitness TV show where people from all the world collectively join together on our "temple" building project of enjoying optimal health. I am a certified group fitness instructor by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), and earned graduate degrees in Writing from DePaul University, in addition to a degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion from the California University of Pennsylvania. The Salvation Army Kroc Center is my church home where I not only teach Adult Sunday school classes, but I also sing on my church's Praise Team alongside my daughters, under the direction of my husband who is our leader. I have seen and experienced the hand of God work and move in my life, and consider it an honor and blessing to be saved to serve.
