One this beautiful Saturday afternoon, we wanted to take a break from our prep to share with you a beautiful story about our first athlete & local gym. Fitness & Health is so much more than individual journeys. Our friends @crossfittrussville and someone who has really become an inspiration for us, @taymstephens & @reboottrussville.
There are no words I can’t say to adequately express what today meant to me as a coach, a friend & an athlete at CrossFit Trussville. Since I first heard about Miracle for Maggie & what the Bowles family was going through, I prayed for a way to impact their lives, anyway I could, to show them love and to celebrate their daughters’ life as she impacted so many.
Maggie’s story has led people to Christ. The way Shawn & Kelly love her has impacted how mothers and fathers love their children. Her family has taught us all to love more fervently, each day, no matter what, and to lean on God above all else.
Fast forward to a few months ago, when Shawn Bowles first texted me to let me know he would be joining ReBoot Trussville. Let me be real honest with you - I was nervous. How am I going to influence this man’s life? How am I going to be a part of his journey? You wanna know how? God showed up.
Shawn has impacted my life so deeply over these past 4 months. I have grown to love a little girl named Maggie who I never had the privilege of meeting. And today, we celebrated her life as a family at CFT with #M7Wonderwoman.
Thank you, Shawn, for sharing this day with us. And thank you, Kelly Roberts Bowles, for sharing your husband with us. We love your family so much. This story isn’t over. 💜
