JENNIFER KATHRYN BODIE is a cradle Catholic revert who made her Sacrament of Confirmation at the ripe age of 38. She is a 1993 graduate of The University of South Carolina where she met her best friend and now husband, Russ. They have three adult children and a son-in-law. They are active Parishioners at Precious Blood of Christ Catholic Church in Pawleys Island, SC. She is a habitual dog walker and enjoys quality coffee, gluten/dairy free baked goods, and dark chocolate for breakfast. Jen relishes quiet candlelit prayer time with pen & journal in hand.
She takes forever to complete reading a book because she prefers deep analytical discussions with faithful friends or tidying the house. Jen lives by the slogans “One day at a time,” “His mercies are new every morning,” and her favorite quote is Saint Augustine’s “Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.” After years of overdoing it through running, yoga and golf for fitness, Jen found balance in walking with prayer, stretching and toning on a mat surrounded by candles and Rosary beads, and short jogs while counting the Mysteries! Little did she know that during those same years SoulCore was being Divinely inspired within two women’s hearts across the states! God is good and our lives are synchronized with His beauty and perfect timing. A friend sent a link to a SoulCore Retreat in Florida one February, and Jen couldn’t wait to sign up and learn more. The rest is in God’s hands.
A Few of Jennifer’s Favorite Scripture Verses:
Psalm 19:14 “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, my Lord.”
Romans 12:1-2 “I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world,but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Isaiah 55:8,9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts then your thoughts.”
