[Pastor Spotlight] – Meet Daryn Pederson
Meet Daryn Pederson who is the lead pastor of New Beginnings Worship Center in Miller, SD. He’s currently enrolled in the Fit Pastors Academy and reported in this past Monday that he’s dropped over 25 pounds thus far! He told us “that’s 2 1/2 more years of ministry, and much better ministry at that!”. What he was referring to was that some statistics say that for every 10 pounds you are overweight, that is 1 year off your life span. Here’s some recent quotes from Daryn.
“Tilapia…high protein and low fat. Who knew? Really liking it. Thinking fish tacos sometime this week.”
“Had some almonds this morning, oatmeal for breakfast. I just feel better. More energy. I do need to start exercising. Thinking about walking to my lunch meeting.”
“I struggle with eating after supper. Most days before fp I’m sure I ate the equivalent of two meals, usually a good mix of fat and carbs. I think since fp started I’ve eaten late 3-4 times. It is a daily struggle for me. It still amazes me when I take steps of faith that God meets me there and gives me what I need, in this case self-control.”
I absolutely love that last statement don’t you? As Christ-followers we have something to combat the struggles of the flesh…. the fruit of self-control. We challenge you to utilize it as well and see what can happen as you reclaim your health for the Kingdom. You got this!
