Mendy Shriver

Gym Owner turned Body Love Advocate
For years Mendy had clung to her need for control, proving her worth,
and striving to look good to our culture, but it eventually broke her.
It took the shattering of Mendy’s fragile world to recognize her deep
need and dependence on God. She finally listened to the passion that
had been stirring in her for years, and sold her gym business to
pursue the mission she knew God was calling her to.

As a former fitness business owner and personal trainer, she now wants
women to see themselves through the eyes of Christ instead of what the
fitness industry projects. Mendy is on a mission to help women see
that God doesn’t care about your love handles, He wants you to live
a healthy, joy-filled life! Keeping a healthy body is bigger than you,
it is part of God’s grand purpose. Healthy people have able bodies
that can serve without limitations. God wants us all to understand
that healthy living begins with Him, not with washboard abs!
