    “Becoming Who We Are,” EP: 024

    A newbie wanders into your CrossFit gym, watches for a while, decides they want the life they see, and signs up.  Are they now a CrossFitter?  Yes.  Are they any fitter?  Not yet.  But as they move forward, over time they will be.  Their outer reality will match the identity that is now theirs.  It happens the same way in the spiritual life.  Today Kris and Tim approach the contours of growth – what it is, how it happens, and the process of becoming who we now are.

A Perfect Blend of Faith and CrossFit

I've been an avid CrossFitter for eight years and a Christian for many more years than that. This podcast is the perfect blend of faith and CrossFit. I love how the hosts use relevant examples from CrossFit to help me grow deeper in my Christian faith. Keep up the great work!!

A mans true identity

This is a podcast that has touched me in so many ways. The biggest is that it focuses on a mans true identity in the mist of all his mess. I love it and will tell others about it.
