Hi there, I’m Stephanie! I’m a 24-year-old Christian, wife, momma, and personal trainer from rural Iowa. I’m married to my high-school sweetheart, Jesse, and together we have two little boys, Camden (3 years) and Zander (2 months). We are followers of Christ in the Reformed faith and as such it impacts every aspect of our lives. I passionately try to follow God’s design for Biblical womanhood; serving my husband, raising babies, and homemaking. I’m also personal trainer with a passion for healthy living, and I own a training business called Break Free Fitness. I train ladies online and in the gym space my husband and I created in our garage. I love that I’m able to minister to others and engage my passion for fitness while being able to be a stay at home mom! It gets a little (ok, VERY) crazy some days, but I love it. Owning my own business has given me the freedom to live my life as I feel called, and I love being a “momprenuer.”
Here’s what you can expect to find here! I classify myself as a Christian lifestyle blogger. The Christian part boldly out front, because I don’t have to explain that as Christian, that’s the most important part of who you are as a person. And lifestyle, because it’s a vague catch-all word that covers anything I might want to write about, whether it’s a workout, how I decorated a room in my house, a Bible study that I’m doing, or something I learned as a parent. I hope you find uplifting, relatable encouragement here, as well as health and wellness inspiration, all with an occasional dash of humor mixed in.
Meet my handsome boys!
Jesse is my husband of five years. We began dating in high school; I was a junior, he was a senior, and we lived 2 hours apart. We were set up on a blind date and have been enraptured with each other ever since. Jesse is my better half; he is the grounding rock of the family, the strong and steady one. He is an extrovert and never passes up the chance for good conversation. He loves fitness and health (almost) as much as I do. He loves golfing, sports, sampling craft beer, and of course, his family.
Camden is our crazy energetic, rambunctious, and social 3 year old son. He is incredibly outgoing and everyone (and I mean EVERYONE; taking him out in public is a little scary) is his friend. He is a pretty typical boy; he loves anything that makes loud noises or has wheels, and he inherited his father’s fascination with dinosaurs. He says the funniest things and makes us laugh every day. Camden has and continues to make me a better person, inside and out.
Zander was newly added to our little family in February! He is the sweetest little thing and we are all so in love with him. He is always happy and full of smiles. He is very strong already, and is going to be a little mover just like his brother. We feel so blessed that God entrusted us with these two little boys to raise for Him!
