Recruiting and Training Specialist

Biking for Babies


One of the “grizzled” veterans of the group, I have been a part of Biking for Babies for 7 years. I have held the “Recruiting and Training Specialist” title for two years now and LOVE the work I get to do with Biking for Babies. I am currently a graduate assistant athletic training receiving my Master’s at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I work with the baseball team and wrestling team at UNC. Also, I have been married for 3 years and have two beautiful children. Biking for Babies is just one of many ways I try to live out a life that is for the culture of family and life. My many years with Biking for Babies has allowed me to meet a ton of awesome people from across the country who are willing to dedicate their lives to helping women, children and families in need. God has truly given me an amazing opportunity with Biking for Babies to help change this culture of death into a culture of life!

Unlike Paul…

An accomplishment such as the 2017 ride and raising $80,000 (so far)–such a physical, spiritual and mental accomplishment–always bring to mind Paul’s final letter to Timothy: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7) Except… There are still women who feel lost, who feel uncared for, who feel shamed, who feel trapped, and, ultimately, feel hopeless.

The Truth Behind Preparation

Biking for Babies is a month away from kicking off its 9th annual national ride as an organization. Trainer and rider Kevin is preparing for his 7th Biking for Babies ride and this time of year always has him asking an honest question: “am I ready?”

A smile is a curve that straightens everything out.

My parents taught me from a young age the importance of a smile. To them, it demonstrated not only joy, but a sense of welcoming for people around them…They taught me to believe that if I took on the world with a smile, I would enjoy each day more, and, more over, give myself an opportunity to help those around me.

March, Stand, Sweat, Hurt, and Sacrifice for Life

“If you went to the March for Life event this year, I sincerely say, “you rock!” But if you believe that is all you are called to do for the “pro-life” cause, then I am here to challenge you…Sweat, bleed, and hurt for the one who feels hopeless.”

Physically and Spiritually Fit

“As your true physical and spiritual strength improve, you will find yourself constantly persevering through 1 more push-up and praying in thanksgiving even after a bad day. “

A Road of Challenges

Wow, what a day! We biked from Greenwood, MS to the north side of Memphis, TN today. Our mile total was around 160 miles. Our team experienced many challenges today from multiple flat tires, a few collisions, bruises and a few small scrapes. We are still in high...

A Tolkien of Inspiration

Hello everyone! My absolute favorite author is J.R.R Tolkien because he has written some very inspirational lines. On top of that, Peter Jackson and his team have brought Tolkien’s universe to life via Hollywood. The video that accompanies this post includes a...

Preparation

The season of Lent is one of my favorite seasons. For me, it is a time of reflection and preparation. During Lent, we prepare for the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. For 40 days, we reflect, repent, give alms, sacrifice and fast. When the 40 days are up,...

Butterflies in my stomach, or something else…

Day one of Biking for Babies is in the books. Everyone made it safe to Columbia, MS this evening and are getting ready for day two. We left St. Katharine Drexel parish in New Orleans around 6am and the stay there was very pleasant. To start off the day we crossed over...

Beware, the following is a commentary of my own thoughts ;)
