Hi, my name is Gail Marek.
Over the past fifteen years or so, my life circumstances got a bit out of control because of a few key decisions I made while I was young. I didn’t have a good standard against which to compare my decisions, and I was lost in life.
I didn’t know who I was, or what my purpose in life was. In 2013 I met the man who changed that—Jesus.
Whereas my former circumstances had me stressed out beyond belief because I felt as though I was carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders, Jesus told me his yoke is easy and his burden light (Matthew 11:28-30), and that the Lord plans to prosper me, give me hope, and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
God’s word gave me the insight I so desperately needed to begin making better decisions for myself and now I want to help you do the same. In the time I’ve since been walking with the Lord, my burden has become much lighter, and I am filled with hope, and joyful anticipation, for the future He has in store for me.
I’m a mother of two boys of my own, and consider it an honor to also mother two step-sons when they’re with my husband and me. Raising the four boys God has placed in our care and molding them into God fearing young men has made me even more of a God fearing woman. Especially in regard to what I expect. I can’t expect things of them that I’m not epitomizing myself; to have faith in difficult situations, to work hard for God, to bear God’s armor, etc. I noticed that in re-prioritizing my own values, and in trying to model those values for the boys, where I was didn’t match where I want to be. I felt God calling me.
Time for a change.
I’m a certified primal health coach now, but God created us to have more than healthy bodies, so health coaching is just a start. My unique experiences as a mother, wife, and formerly a sole-provider, has brought me into an intimate relationship with stress, many times, and in many of it’s various forms; physical, emotional, mental, financial—the list goes on.
I was so clueless of my own need for help, and so afraid to ask for it once I became aware. Looking back at how far I’ve come, how much healthier I am, and how positively the changes I made have impacted my own life, I sincerely thank God for saving me and have asked him to send me women I can relate to. I can’t do Jesus work for him, but I can love similarly to the way he did, and help women like me in their time of need to feel comforted and supported.
Modeling Jesus’ love through my own business, and showing my kids what a life following Jesus looks like, is what I value most.
