Fit For A Purpose Book Support

Weight Transition Collage

In April 2011, God gave me the vision to start a business that would help other individuals reach their health and wellness goals. In August 2013, Fit For A Purpose (F.4.A.P), LLC. became a reality. F.4.A.P. is a spiritual and physical wellness consultation company built on a foundation from Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” I believe we are all called for a purpose and need to be spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally fit to carry out our calling.

I am writing a book entitled, “Fit For A Purpose: A Spiritual Journey to Physical Weight Loss.” This book will chronicle my journey to losing over 80 lbs. of physical weight and even more spiritual, emotional and physical weight. It is my prayer to launch this book and help change lives through my personal testimony and experience.

I need your help to raise $7,000.00 to effectively fund a “Premier package” book launch and purchase marketing materials. No donation is too small!

F.4.A.P. also provides consultation to individuals, corporations, churches and other organizations dealing in the areas of spiritual and physical wellness. F.4.A.P. seeks to provide assistance dealing in the following areas; self-improvement, organizational improvement, spiritual and physical wellness, inspiration, encouragement, and motivation.

Thank you in advance for your contribution and please share with others. May God continue to bless you and keep you!

Happy 4th of July


I pray you have a Happy 4th of July weekend. While you reflect on your independence, please take a moment to think about your spiritual freedom.

John 8:36 New King James Version (NKJV)

36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

We live in a country that is filled with opportunity, but are you FREE? Are you emotionally, spiritually, physically and mentally free? It is great to live in this great land of opportunity, but it doesn’t mean anything if you are not spiritually free. Man can’t offer the liberation that God can. Take time this weekend to really reflect on your independence and ask yourself, “AM I TRULY FREE?”

God bless!
