Getting Fit in Body and Soul with Sam Kelley

Oct 26, 2023

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the holy Spirit
within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your
own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in
your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

In  today’s episode, Beth is interviewing Sam Kelley, an international presenter, author, and speaker, and the founder and president of Fierce Athlete Incorporated. Through her business, she integrates highly-competitive athleticism with Theology of the Body, primarily in the highschool and college athletic arenas. Throughout their conversation, Beth and Sam explore the body-soul composite, suggesting that in order to have a physically healthy life, you need to have a great spiritual life, and vice versa! 

Have you ever thought of a workout as a Holy Hour? Sam shares the motivation she receives when she dedicates her workouts to suffering and praying for specific intentions, and uniting her experiences with Christ’s passion. She also shares how community sports like pickleball can be a great way to love on your community, and even to evangelize!. 

If you’re looking to get started on your fitness journey, Sam shares practical tips for people of all ages and in all stages of life. She and Beth also explore the effect that exercise has, not only on your body and soul, but also on your mind. And finally, Sam explains the deeper truths hidden throughout this conversation: that understanding our innate value as daughters of God can be the inspiration we need to live our best life ever.
