Aaron is my big brother and the most inspiring person I know. Growing up my brother was overweight. When he meet my sister in law 13 years age he made a major lifestyle change. He started exercising and eating healthy and dropped all his extra weight. Two years ago my husband put a team of 10 people from our church together to run a Tough Mudder event. After we completed out first Tough Mudder the word spread fast, not only in our church but all over town and by the 2nd year we had 30 members. Now we are getting ready for year number 3 and we have 62 members and growing. My brother has stepped up and leads our group (appropriatley named Strong By Faith) He organizes the workout 5 days a week and never misses a beat. Its not just that hes there to lead us in the exercise but his encouragement to keep us going and push hard is second to none. My brother has a true love of people and Christ and it shows everyday in his positive attitude. I am watching people I never thought could walk through Wal Mart on their own for too long participate it mile walks and 5k's. This is because of my brothers can do attitude and his constant words of encourgement that anything is possible. Because of Strong By Faith and his commitment to our group our church is growing...its infectious. We are under construction for a new gym in the hopes of watching our group grow to the hundreds. I have no doubts as long as brother continues to lead this group that it will. My brother is changing lives everyday...people are becoming healthy and happy and most importantly finding the Lord and faith in thier lives. I am so blessed and proud to be his sister.
