The Devoted Dreamers Podcast

Whether you have a dream in your heart or aren’t sure what God might be calling you to, The Devoted Dreamers Podcast will encourage you on the journey. This space is dedicated to sharing stories every week of women who are following Jesus and pursuing their God-given gifts in beautifully imperfect ways. You’ll hear about the fears and challenges that threaten their dreams as well as the joy, courage and confidence that comes from following Jesus even in the unexpected…especially in the unexpected.

I’m your host, Merritt Onsa, and my prayer is that this show will meet you where you are in your walk with God. I hope you will come away from the podcast each week with encouragement to begin pursuing your own dreams even when you still feel flawed, imperfect, unfinished and not ready. Because if you wait until you are perfect, you will never take the first step. Join us!

Alisa Keeton is a wholehearted lover of God who uses fitness as her tool to spread the Gospel message. She is the founder of Revelation Wellness – a non-profit ministry that trains fitness instructors and teaches fitness enthusiasts as well as the author of The Wellness Revelation – an 8-week journey to losing what weighs you down so you can love God, yourself and others.

In this episode, Alisa talks about how, at first, she said she’d “never do that” to the dream God had for her. She shares how He surprised her and made it happen anyway, not with her kicking and screaming, but with a sweet ambition to create something that would bring people the same kind of freedom she’d found in Christ.

At the time of our conversation, Alisa had just returned from a three-month sabbatical. She talks about the decision to take time away to slow down, rest and let God love her, and she shares some of what He did in her heart during that time.

This conversation really ministered to me, and I hope it will to you as well, especially the reminder of who we are as daughters of the King.
