Gaming and God: Directory Participant Spotlight

Not being a fan of video games myself, I admit I was skeptical when the random number generator choose a gaming site for the next directory spotlight. However, I reached out to the owner of the site and found a man who not only loves the Lord but who could write on a topic which I am unable to write about.

Whether you are a "gamer" or not, I encourage you to read His spotlight post. You will be glad you did, especially if you have children or grandchildren who enjoy video games. 

It is my honor to introduce you to a man who is using his passion to honor the Lord....Michael Morejon.

Lose Weight and Gain Faith, Five17 Fitness: Directory Participant Spotlight

This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click links, we may receive compensation. 

I am excited to write this Directory Spotlight because I am writing it out of my personal experience with the individual/business which is being spotlighted.

Have you have ever stood on the scale and stared in discouragement at the number?

I can relate.

I’ve known for quite some time that I needed to make some changes in my life. I knew this because my health, as well as my scale, told me so.  

I have always been skeptical of many weight loss “programs” and “diet fads”. I knew when it came time to make changes in my life it was going to have to be in a way that was not “fad” like in nature, it had to be in a way I could feel good about.

Scripture says:

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

In all honesty, I was not treating my body like it was the temple of the Holy Spirit, I was not taking the time to take care of me and I certainly was not honoring God with my body.

At the same time as I was considering the changes I needed to make, and asking the Lord for guidance, He connected me to a biblically based health and fitness program I could feel good about participating in. It was a program right within the Faithful Bloggers Directory.

Let me introduce you to Five17 Fitness and Tyler Inloes, my personal coach.

I am currently 12 days into a 40 day fitness challenge withFive17 Fitness. When I set the date I was going to begin the challenge, I was so excited to start.

Then just a couple days before the date I chose to begin, I injured my foot, like seriously injured it.

I have been told to keep my foot up as much as possible for the next couple months. (Yes, months!)

Believe me when I tell you, I was tempted to say, “I have to wait to start this.” 

I was tempted to say, “I can’t right now because…”

But I made the decision that healthy is healthy, foot injury or not. So, I told Tyler about my injury and he too encouraged me to begin anyway. And so I did.

I have had to make adjustments to accommodate my injury. I cannot do any exercise which bends my foot at the ankle. I also can do almost no cardiovascular types of exercise (walking, running, jumping motions, etc.). Talk about needing to get creative.

If I can do this with my injury, so can you!

Because of my limitations with my foot, I do believe my progress may not be as swift as other people may experience, but I’m good with that. Healthwise I feel great.

When I started this, I had expected it to help me begin a path towards better health. Yes, it has done that. I feel great and yes, I’ve lost weight and inches. But this program has been so much more than I expected:

  • I’ve received daily spiritual encouragement right from scripture.
  • I’ve learned so much about God’s plan for my health.
  • There’s been someone behind the program who really cares about me, my family and my health.

All of these have strengthened my faith, just like the Five17 Fitness tag line says (lose weight & gain faith).

Tyler’s program teaches about and includes fasting, detoxing, healthy recipes, scripture, and daily emails which include encouragement, and health and exercise tips. All of which is written from a Christian, biblical basis. From the Five17 Fitness website:

In our opinion, the best way to lose weight isn’t by just eating kale and spending hours on a treadmill, but to follow the groundwork God lays out in the Bible”

Tyler is hosting a live webinar this Thursday, June 15th at 1:00p.m.

This webinar is called:

The Holy Detox: How to Lose 10 Pounds in 5 Days using the Bible. The link to register for the webinar is below.

I encourage you to register for the webinar, (I’ll be there!). If you are feeling run down, and haven’t been taking care of you, then maybe that one hour could be the kickstart you need (just like I needed) to get your healthy journey started.

Or you could jump right into the 40 day challenge and join me on the journey (this link to the 40 day challenge shows you everything that is covered during the challenge). It would be so exciting to have others on this journey with me, maybe we could encourage each other! If you begin, email me and let me know. 

Either way, check out the Five17 Fitness website and tell them Shelley sent you.

I want to say thank you to Tyler Inloes for using his passions to bring honor and glory to the Lord!

Here’s the info about the webinar in his own words:

I am on a mission.

My mission is to transform as many lives as possible through faith and nutrition.

I’ve seen first hand how eating biblically can transform people’s lives. And I know that if I can help take your nutrition to the next level, more lives will be changed.

Join me, Tyler Inloes, a Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Nutrition Specialist, for a 1-hour webinar where I’ll cover:

  • How to find purpose through fasting
  • What scripture says regarding what we eat
  • How to get on the right path to building your body, His temple
  • And much, much more!

Directory Participant Spotlight - Damsels Digress

Christian Directory Spotlight

Faithful Bloggers exists to help Christian blog and website owners get the word out regarding their ministry or business. We have a directory to help with that purpose, we recently announced a new benefit to those who are listed in the directory; the Directory Participant Spotlight. Those who are in the directory are welcome to submit a request to be spotlighted. We have had many submissions and chose the first spotlight randomly from the submissions using the random number generator.

We are proud to announce our first spotlight and ask that you stop by their website and support their work, tell them we sent you. Here's a bit about them, in their own words. 


It’s no secret that most women like to talk. And what’s wrong with that? Life as a Christian can get complicated, and sometimes, you just have to talk stuff out. Or digress, as we call it. Whether it’s mulling over the church’s aversion to a healthy discussion of sex, detailing how culture has corrupted the biblical meaning of judgment, giving advice on how to talk to a grieving friend, or just listing our favorite fictional couples, Damsels Digress has been an online forum where young Christian women express themselves since 2014. We strive for honesty, because if we’re never honest about where we are then we’ll never understand what we must do to grow. We hope our digressions will challenge both you and us to live a life dedicated to becoming more like Christ in our speech, conduct, love, faith and purity. 

In addition to reading our blog, you can watch us digress on:
