We are blessed with MANY amazing CPIs (Certified PraiseMoves Instructors) all over the world, so we want to be able to acknowledge some of them so you can meet them, too!
Amanda Stewart, CPI from Chillicothe, Ohio is a new CPI doing BIG things–with Baby and Me PraiseMoves classes!
Amanda shares, “I first discovered PraiseMoves in July 2018 after researching yoga per my husband's request. At first, I was stubborn and didn't want to believe there was anything wrong with yoga, but the PraiseMoves website helped me to see that I needed to give it up if I wanted to be a dedicated Jesus follower.
And then this happened…
“The same night I found PraiseMoves,” Amanda continued, “My husband was reading 1st Corinthians 6 in the other room while I was reading its application to yoga on the PraiseMoves website. It was a God thing!”
PraiseMoves' Foundation Scripture is 1 Corinthians 6:20: “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
Amanda did what many do who visit the Classes section on PraiseMoves.com. She looked for a PraiseMoves class in her area.
“Even though I didn't practice yoga regularly, I did enjoy the stretching component and was glad there was an alternative,” she said. “I found Deb Rhoads' class on the website and checked it out with my husband. Afterward, we agreed that I should pursue becoming a CPI.”
One month after learning about PraiseMoves, Amanda decided to become a CPI and took part in the next Online Training.
Three months after training, Amanda started teaching classes at Ross County YMCA in Chillicothe, Ohio and her “Baby and Me PraiseMoves” classes were born. She also gives regular PraiseMoves classes for all ages. The response has been very encouraging.
Can you spot the 3 babies in the class photo? Three other moms and their babies were out of class the day this photo was taken.
How powerful for babies to hear the Word of God–and what a blessing for mothers to share this life-changing experience with their little ones.
“I am a homeschooling mom,” Amanda said. “We enjoy KinderMusik, Bible Study Fellowship, activities at the YMCA and library, and our local playgroup called Discovery Garden. We love our home church, Chillicothe Baptist Church.”
Success from the Start…
Amanda understands the importance of associations and relationships which begin at a young age. In fact, she met her husband at a VERY young age!
“I am married to Tyler Stewart,” she said. “We met in kindergarten, he loves to Lord and is a wonderful servant leader of our family. We have three boys: Morrie (5), Hezekiah (3), and Job (5 months).”
What do Amanda and her students love best about PraiseMoves?
“It's so much fun!” she said. “PraiseMoves provides a good workout and stretching! It's fun to say scriptures together and have a great devotional time at the end of class.”
Amanda adds, “Being healthy is about having a healthy body, mind, and spirit! I love that PraiseMoves helps me do this!”
And WE are thrilled that Amanda is helping members of her community of all ages grow in their relationship with the Lord in His Word while developing as Fit Witnesses for Christ in spirit, soul, and body.
