PRAISEMOVES IS PART OF THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE “TRUE AND OF GOOD REPORT”
I have been physically active my whole life: competitive swimming and diving, golf, ballet, bodybuilding, and aerobics. I have always believed that flexibility training was the first priority in physical health. Researching all that was available, I discovered Yoga, but as a Christian, I was very cautious in my study. I found the moves to be greatly beneficial, but always had the check in my spirit that all was not well. I also was not comfortable sharing my exercise routine with others, for the scriptures told me: “nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak.” I have always wanted to share all that I knew to be true and of good report (Philippians 4:8), and Yoga was indeed a problem for me as I knew it was not all true and of good report.
Finally, hallelujah, I saw Dr. Laurette Willis on my Sky Angel network programming (Faith TV) and rejoiced in my spirit that the answer that I had always been looking for had come. And indeed, this was ALL true and of good report. I have only had my PraiseMoves a short time, but I have incorporated the moves and the scripture sequences into my daily routine. I love to multitask, and PraiseMoves, as God, is the Master at multitasking. It is wonderful to worship God while being a good steward in caring for His holy temple, our bodies. And I like to get double for my trouble, and PraiseMoves, as God, is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory…
“I am a very disciplined person, and exercise was never an option, of course, I reaped rewards from my diligence, but the task was always burdensome. That is no longer true, as He says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Now, my exercise is food for my soul, my Daily Bread, a river in the desert, my cup that runneth over.
look forward with anticipation and expectation to my daily exercise. It is a joy, not a dread. I believe that as the Word of God is spoken out and goes forth it shall not return void, but shall accomplish what He pleases, and it shall prosper in the thing for which He sent it. As Laurette was so careful to cover every move with the Word, and in fact, she even names the postures as they look and feel with the Word, you cannot help but receive from the Word. I feel the Word of God penetrating the very fibers of my body, bringing healing, restoration, refreshing, and rest as I move through the postures.
“For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of JOINTS AND MARROW, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” This scripture is prefaced by a discussion on entering God’s rest. In the times we live in, I cannot think of anything more important than being diligent to enter that rest.
Yes, the Word of God is deep and takes us from faith to faith and glory to glory and I believe PraiseMoves, embedded in the Word of God is deep stuff… bringing healing and rest to the body, mind, and spirit. We get it all in one package. What an awesome blessing!!!
Thank God for Dr. Laurette’s obedience to what she heard from Him. And yes, God is still going to do more than I had ever asked or thought, as my next move is to become certified as a PraiseMoves instructor, and finally share ALL that I know to be true and of good report. Hallelujah and Amen.

HELP FOR NECK AND UPPER BACK MUSCLES; FREEDOM FROM ANXIETY–AND CAFFEINE!
I have had trouble pretty much my whole life with severely tight neck, shoulder, and upper back muscles. I’ve had issues with tension headaches and stiff neck for most of my adult life.
For a time, I tried regular yoga and did see some benefit from the stretching. I did it only for the exercise but still didn’t feel at peace with continuing in the yoga since I am a Christian. I have also had struggles with anxiety for most of my life.
I was so excited when I first heard of PraiseMoves and ordered the workout right away. I love it so much; I can’t even begin to tell you!
I always feel so uplifted during the workout and afterwards. It truly has turned my workout into worship!
I occasionally will get massages and always in the past, I’ve heard things like how my neck and upper back muscles feel like brick.
Well, I had a massage just last week with a new girl, and was I ever surprised when she told me how great of a condition my tissue was in and how easily it moves!
What a difference from before! I know it is from the PraiseMoves workout!
Another huge benefit is the peace I now live in and freedom from anxiety. I have even been able to get off caffeine, which I had been addicted to for a long time.”
2008: “Hi Dr. Laurette –
I submitted a testimony a long time ago but still feel just as passionate about sharing what PraiseMoves has meant to me, so here is another testimony. Thanks so much for PraiseMoves!
I love PraiseMoves so much! I used to deal with situational/seasonal depression and when I started exercising, I was able to get off the antidepressants.
However, I was doing yoga and heard that Christians shouldn’t be doing yoga so I was a little confused. I felt better than I had in years but didn’t want to do something that wasn’t good.
When I found PraiseMoves, I started doing the exercises and one of the things I loved was that when I got done with the workout,
I felt spiritually uplifted and strengthened, as well as physically.
I was able to get off caffeine. I feel calmer. I only struggle with situational/seasonal depression when I quit doing my PraiseMoves for a while.
It’s amazing how much better I feel. I have done all of your workouts and I love all of them and alternate them, so I NEVER get bored doing my workout!
It’s really been a life-transforming blessing in my life. I could go on and on!
