In a recent episode of the Eternal Leadership podcast, we were honored to host Michelle Spadafora, the founder of Faithful Workouts. Michelle's biblical perspective on integrating physical and spiritual health offers a refreshing approach to wellness.


The Synergy of Faith and Fitness

Michelle shares how physical health and spiritual well-being are deeply interconnected. She explained that taking care of our bodies is not only a matter of physical health but is also intertwined with our spiritual lives. This holistic approach underlines the importance of nurturing both aspects harmoniously.


Small Habits, Big Results

Our discussion's key focus was the power of small habit changes. Michelle emphasized that dramatic lifestyle overhauls are often less effective than minor, consistent adjustments in our daily routines. By integrating simple practices into our physical and spiritual lives, we can achieve substantial and sustainable results.


The Role of Community and Support

Michelle highlighted the importance of community and mutual support in maintaining physical and spiritual health. She believes in the strength of shared experiences and the encouragement of being part of a supportive network. This sense of community is vital in staying motivated and committed to our health goals.


Overcoming Challenges with Faith

Throughout the conversation, Michelle stressed the role of faith in overcoming health challenges. She shared how a solid spiritual foundation can provide the resilience and perspective needed to navigate the ups and downs of any health journey.


Faithful Workouts: A Brief Overview

While our conversation centered on the principles behind Michelle's approach, the practical application of these ideas in her Faithful Workouts program is worth noting. Designed specifically for women over 40, Faithful Workouts offers more than just exercise routines. It encompasses over 500 workout videos, healthy eating plans, and faith-based encouragement, all aimed at nurturing the body and the spirit.


About Michelle Spadafora

Michelle, a mother of three with over 30 years of marriage, brings a genuine and approachable style to health and fitness. Her passion for cooking, her love for laughter, and her appreciation of life's simple joys like a glass of wine or french fries, make her relatable and inspirational. Her mission extends beyond physical fitness; it's about reminding people of their intrinsic value and the love they deserve.

This week we had the great pleasure of speaking with Craig Thayer, M.D.

Craig Thayer's destiny was mapped before he was even born. Being put up for adoption at birth and finding his family at nine months was just the start of his unorthodox journey.

Craig Thayer battled a reading disorder that went undiagnosed until he was fifty-five years old. Despite that and numerous other challenges, the calling in his heart to become a surgeon grew louder and louder. It didn’t quit when he suffered a twisted intestine, witnessed his adopted mother’s alcohol problem, grieved her death when he was just eighteen, healed from a skull fracture in college, agonized over his adopted father’s fight for his life, and struggled to find his self-esteem. Through adversity, he has become a well-respected surgeon, head of trauma, community leader, and forever a jokester.  The miracles that touched his life were his saving grace and shined a light on his purpose.

Craig Thayer’s intent in sharing his stories are to give you hope, inspiration, a sense of belonging.  His passion is to inspire and motivate others to live their life to the fullest. We are all more alike than we know.

A harmonious blend of faith and personal development, the book has emerged as an illuminating guide for those journeying on a spiritual path seeking to forge a profound connection with the Divine.
Discovering the Mentor Within and Beyond
The crux of Donna's book is Mentorship. "At various stages in our lives, we seek guidance and wisdom. But have we ever considered that perhaps the greatest mentor of all might be Jesus?" Donna ponders. Her book elucidates the journey to recognizing one's intrinsic worth as seen through the eyes of God and harnessing the mentorship opportunities found in Scripture, the Holy Spirit, and even the people we encounter in life.
The Significance of Mentorship
During our chat, Donna shared, "Mentorship goes beyond learning specific tasks. It's a deep dive into understanding oneself, reconciling with past experiences, and carving out a purposeful future." She highlights the transformative experience of self-awareness and the importance of seeking guidance in every dimension of our existence.
Walking on Water and Its Reverberations
The evocative title "My Mentor Walks on Water" isn't solely about biblical miracles. It's a clarion call for readers to challenge their boundaries, to dare beyond the ordinary, and to be catalysts for change. "Dare to lock eyes with Jesus and embrace the impossible," Donna entreats.
About Donna Johnson

In this awe-inspiring episode of Eternal Leadership, we had the profound honor of speaking with Carole Ward, a woman whose life is a testament to the miraculous and redemptive power of God at work. As the founder and director of Favor International, Carole has been an instrument of change in Northern Uganda and South Sudan for over 18 years, transforming lives and communities through her unwavering faith and dedication to her mission.
Carole's journey began when she courageously prayed, "Send me where no one wants to go." Despite being warned by US authorities and other organizations that she would likely return in a body-bag, Carole's faith in God's power led her to Northern Uganda and South Sudan. There, she has not only survived but thrived, witnessing the work of the Holy Spirit and experiencing miracles reminiscent of those found in the Book of Acts.
In the face of unspeakable horrors, including a 30-year war in Northern Uganda, Carole stood strong as the only white woman in that part of the country for the last two years of the conflict, after all other missionaries had fled. Through her unyielding faith and trust in a God who is stronger than the strongest evil, Carole has seen lives transformed, communities rebuilt, and even governments impacted by the love and power of God.
Carole Ward's story is a vivid reminder that when we surrender our lives to God and follow His calling, even in the darkest of places, miracles can and do happen. Her journey is a shining example of God's redemptive work in action, inspiring all who hear her story to believe in the power of faith, love, and commitment.

Jon Sanders and Les Hughes know a hard, rarely shared truth about life in ministry: that hundreds of pastors leave vocational ministry every month. Frequently, financial scarcity and anxiety that comes with it are key factors in the departures. Out of this knowledge, a desire for more financial freedom and margin for their own families, and a passion to help others claim that freedom for themselves, EntrePastors was born.

EntrePastors helps pastors think, act, and thrive as prosperous entrepreneurs. Through podcasts, a membership community, and mastermind groups, EntrePastors provides the tools and support community to help pastors and others with a ministry background achieve financial and time freedom and escape the stressful paycheck to paycheck life that often accompanies vocational ministry.

As a high school dropout with substance-abuse and emotional trauma tendencies, she was well on her way to perpetuating the generational cycle of destruction and becoming a statistic lost to the system and her upbringing. But a sudden, transformative embrace by God, filling the trenches dug by rejection in her past, changed everything and put her on a journey to her unbelievable “God Story” and transformation!

Michael Phillips was pushed to the margins of the school system.  As a kid, a teacher essentially told him he’d never amount to anything. That was followed by a series of losses—his father’s death, getting in a life-altering car accident, and losing his college scholarship—which led him to abandon his hopes of a better life and turn to dealing drugs. But when he was arrested, a judge gave him a second chance at college rather than 30 years in prison if convicted, and that changed his whole life trajectory. Enough so that his son even attended and graduated from Harvard! 

Michael would love to share what we can do individually to create change and give every child an opportunity to dream and succeed.

Fairfax was only 26 when, as the fifth-generation heir to the Australian media empire bearing his family name, he led―and lost―a multibillion-dollar public takeover bid. The result? The company founded by his great-great grandfather slipped from family control after 150 years, leaving him to examine not only his own shortcomings and losses, but also his life’s principles and the lessons he learned from family members who came before him and some of history’s greatest leaders. By shaping these insights as a leadership adviser, Fairfax has enabled others to learn from what he describes as their own “crucible experiences” and emerge to lead lives driven by vision and passion and dedicated to serving others.

It's no secret that we're pushed to the limit. Today's professionals feel rushed, overwhelmed, and perennially behind. So we keep our heads down, focused on the next thing, and the next, without a moment to breathe. 

How can we break out of this endless cycle and create the kind of interesting, meaningful lives we all seek?

As top business thinker and Duke University professor Dorie Clark explains, we all know intellectually that lasting success takes persistence and effort. And yet so much of the relentless pressure in our culture pushes us toward doing what's easy, what's guaranteed, or what looks glamorous in the moment. In The Long Game, she argues for a different path. It's about doing small things over time to achieve our goals—and being willing to keep at them, even when they seem pointless, boring, or hard.
