Theresa has been a parishioner of St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Laplace, Louisiana for 35 years. She is married to her husband Skip for 35 years, they have three grown children. Theresa was introduced to SoulCore through her local priest. In a conversation about exercise, he mentioned SoulCore, a Catholic workout. This immediately intrigued Theresa. She totally loved and believed in the SoulCore concept of prayer with exercise. For years she has jogged while reciting the rosary. After purchasing the SoulCore rosary exercise DVD’s, she decided to register for a SoulCore leadership and discernment retreat. Upon completion of the retreat, further spiritual formation and constant practice, she realized being a Certified SoulCore Instructor was in her future. In January, Theresa became a certified Pilates Instructor. She says, “It had to be the Holy Spirit’s plan”. It certainly was not what Theresa had in mind for her future. She says, “It had to be His will!” Thankful and humbled to lead, she couldn’t be more excited to share this ministry and pray that many will deepen their relationship with Jesus through His beautiful mother Mary.
