If you’ve ever wondered what the will of God is for your life, then stick around, because that is exactly what we are here for, to help you figure that out!
Welcome to Be Still and Run where we encourage people to find what the will of God is for their life, we are delighted you are here! Over the years the vision at BSR has remained the same – to encourage people to run WITH God in their day to day life.
One of our favorite ways to do this is to compare the Christian life to that of a runner because there are so many good analogies with which many people can easily relate. Jesus himself ran the race that was set before Him joyfully because He knew what the will of God was. (See Hebrews 12:1-2)
We believe every person on earth was created to run with God. Not for Him, because in all reality there is no good in us and we can do nothing without Him in the first place, and not against Him. We also believe that the Christian life should be that of Hope in Christ. We should know WHO God is and WHO we are as His children. This in turn gives us an opportunity to choose whether to live in the world or of the world. We as children of God have the Spirit of love, power, and a sound mind living within us and we believe that by living in the truth of God’s word and trusting Him to keep His promises, each of His followers can have an intimate relationship with Christ that fulfills our deepest needs and desires. Religion, which is following a bunch of rules, steals the joy and satisfaction in Jesus that God desires each of us to have.
Our vision is to get runners excited about running with God in both their physical and spiritual life, by living in the will of God. We desire to help you find what your specific purpose is in life and then help you fulfill that! As the Lord leads we will keep expanding Be Still and Run in many ways such as virtual classes, workshops, retreats, challenges and so much more – including some fun virtual races.
What Ladies Say About The Back to the Basics Program
If you are wanting to grow closer to Jesus while at the same time learn to run, I highly recommend!
I was nervous and quite hesitant to take this course because all other courses have you start out your running too fast. But, after the first few weeks of this course, I realized it was take it your own pace but yet still challenging at the same time!
Having a community of girls to encourage you and push you farther than you thought you could go is something that was amazing! Knowing you have girls who are learning to run with you is Soo encouraging!!
Highly highly recommend!!Emily Dawn (young adult)
I really enjoyed going through this running course! I would recommend it for anyone that has an interest in running! I feel like I learned a lot going through the book, not just about running but also about who I really am in Christ!Rebekah (29)
This is my first time taking a running course and learning how to run with a spiritual mindset. God has used this course to show me both my strengths and weaknesses, and I am so thankful for what He has taught me! I think of this course as the foundation for exercise and my spiritual life, and I am very excited to keep growing and learning. The creator of this course has a strong spiritual and running life, and her wisdom can definitely help anyone grow and learn! I loved the accountability and community during these past few months and benefited from hearing others’ stories. If you decide to take this course, you won’t regret it! It can change your life!Rachel (early 30’s)
