So I knew it was coming. I had a feeling that this was going to be my All In story.

I kept putting it off and trying to ignore it. So yesterday I jumped all in. And now that its public you get to hold me accountable.

I want to be a better leader and to be a better leader I have to be a better follower. To be a better follower I need to be in better shape. I believe this is the model laid out for us in the Bible by Jesus Christ.

The gym is one way for me to accomplish this. The healthier I am mentally and physically the better I will do spiritually. These are tied together in a way that only God completely understands.

Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:7&8

While spiritual exercise has benefits that far outreach the physical exercise we should still do both. One affects the other!

Lanette and I both are committed to being better followers this year and we believe it will make us better leaders!

That's my ALL IN story and I am sticking to it! (I hope!)

I would love to hear yours. Send it to stories@atleechurch.org
