“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit!” (Hebrews 12: 1 MSG)
Time is drawing near. The athletes have trained for it, coaches honed the athletes skills and enthusiast have eagerly waiting for the games to begin. The opening ceremonies for the 2012 Olympics are just days away. While you and I may not have the talent or skills needed to participate in the Olympics Games, we can sign up for the FREE two week Christian Olympics.
I had the pleasure of being one of the reviewers for the Beta version of these special events. I highly, highly encourage you to join me and other pioneers of our faith who will “blaze the way” during this full two week special event that will coincide with the Olympics. Some of you are wondering what I am talking about, aren’t you? So, let me spell it out to you.
The Christian Olympics are fun, online events which will help you build your faith while developing a healthier lifestyle. If we get right down to it, as it states in Hebrews 12: 1, these events can help you start “running the race Christ set before us.” These games are lead by Coach Liz and will give you the opportunity to hone your faith. (while working on overall wellness)
The T-R-A-I-N-I-N-G includes:
Daily Events led through Coach Liz, a certified wellness coach for Christian women.
The Facebook Page Christian Olympics . You are given the opportunity to sign up to participate in this exciting, FIRST ever Christian Olympic Event. After sign up, you will the (through email) receive a Welcome Packet. Not only will it give you instructions for the games, it means you are on your way to a healthy life. This page then give you the chance to socialize and interact with others who have started the “race.”
MindBloom, is an online game which helps you grow the life you want. It will inspire and challenge you as you continue to train for and persevere in life! Don’t worry, I didn’t have a clue what this game was either. It took me a few days to catch on. But after receiving instructions and encouragement from fellow “bloomers” my tree is healing and growing. After setting up an account on this website, you will be given a tree. Each leaf on the tree represents the areas of your life which you would like to grow. From there you will have opportunities to choose, schedule and carry out actions. These actions help us as we strive to finish the “race” strong. Once in Mindbloom, you can “friend” others participating in the Olympics or even give your family and friends the opportunity to join in. During the Special Events, each morning Coach Liz gives present a one event to participate in. Coach has chosen three areas for each of us to improve in: Faith, relationships, and nutrition. You will have the day to complete the activity, then in the evening add the action on Mindbloom and also the opportunity to share on the FB page with other participants who will be cheering you on!
Oh….did I mention these Christian Olympic events are FREE? Free, with the opportunity to win! Whoot. Whoot!! While you may not win a Gold, Silver or Bronze Olympic Medal. You will have the opportunity to win some great prizes like gas cards and movie tickets. Also, Coach has surprises planned throughout the event! (Did I hear you holler whoot, whoot!?!)
So, what are you waiting for? Click on into the Christian Olympics Facebook page and “Get on with it…start running and NEVER Quit.”
