Ok, time for me to be REAL yet a bit UNCOMFORTABLE,
5 years ago when God opened doors for Faithful Workouts to go on TV, the first word I heard from Him regarding this new adventure was, “Be Real”. Actually, I was thankful when I heard this because that’s typically how I live, I’m an open book. BUT this topic is uncomfortable for me to be real about - money. My husband & I covered the initial costs of producing the TV programs and since then your donations & purchases have helped with all other expenses. In the 5.5 years I’ve been doing Faithful Workouts I’ve taken about $5,000 in salary (not yearly, total) from your donations and from the sale of products. Hear me when I say this I'm not complaining about my salary because the notes of encouragement I’ve received are truly worth more than millions.
I’m also thankful God guided me to offer the f3 Plan without charge because this decisions brought me so much peace. In 1 Corinthians 9 Paul talks about not charging for his services & I so relate to him. In verse 19 he says, “What then is my pay? It is the satisfaction I get from preaching the Good News without expense to anyone”. However, in verse 14 Paul writes, “the Lord gave orders that those who preach the Good News should be supported from those who benefit from it.” If you feel as though you’ve benefitted from Faithful Workouts, would you pray about supporting this ministry? FW is a non-profit so any donation is tax-deductible. My hope, with your help, is to reach more people through this unique platform. Maybe, someone will come to FW for a workout but discover God's love & truth & their lives & eternity will be forever changed. Thanks
