I’M WRITING IN ALL CAPS TO SHOW YOU JUST HOW ECSTATIC I AM ABOUT THIS CONVERSATION!
My friend Ashley Armstrong is a personal trainer, health nut, fellow pastor’s wife, and mama of two. But more than that? She’s steady in hope, fierce in passion, and genuine in character. In this episode, Ashley and I chat about what it looks like when faith and fitness collide, as well as what it’s like to be Supermom to the Mighty Finn—who happens to drive a wheelchair. One thing I admire about Ashley is how she openly wears her heart on her sleeve, sharing both the joys + challenges of raising a child with special needs and wrestling through God’s sovereignty.
“My idea of perfection has shifted. My idea of what it means for a human to be formed perfectly has shifted—because I think my idea of perfection is very flawed.” Ashley Armstrong
There’s loads of wisdom to glean from this spiritually- and physically-fit guru! So grab some coffee, pull up a chair, and join us at The Messy Table.

“Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8
“As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.” John 9:1-3
