I climbed on the treadmill yesterday, ready to conquer the world. I knew my workout schedule next week would be messed up, so I was going to “up the ante” this week.

When I’m running, I don’t like to see the numbers. It makes the time drag by and I don’t feel as productive or focused, so I put a towel over the screen. I know it should take nine songs to hit my running goal. At the end of the ninth song, I take the towel off, see where I’m at, jump up and shout (not really), then slow the pace so I can cool down.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 6, 2014 — Joining with Senator Bill Frist, M.D.'s Hope Through Healing Hands and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, several U.S. celebrity and faith-based moms joined together to support the Faith-Based Coalition for Healthy Mothers and Children Worldwide, a campaign to improve global maternal and child health, including through education about healthy spacing and timing of pregnancies.

Hope Through Healing Hands (HTHH), a Nashville-based global health organization, recently partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to create the coalition. Some of the moms and parents joining the effort include Amy Grant, Grammy-winning Christian music artist; Kimberly Williams Paisley, actress and writer; Jennifer Nettles, Grammy-winning Country music artist; Tracie and Scott Hamilton, Olympic gold-medal ice skater and philanthropist; Jena Lee and James Nardella, Leaders of Blood:Water Mission and Lwala Community Alliance; Cathy Taylor, Dean of School of Nursing at Belmont University; and Elizabeth Styffe, R.N., M.N., P.H.N. and Director of HIV/AIDS and Orphan Care at Saddleback Church.

For my entire life I have struggled with my body image. I cannot remember a season since I was a child where I was not over obsessed or under impressed with the body that I had to carry around each day. Even when I felt my best, I still always felt like the worst. Whether it was my complexion, skin, weight, height, or hair, I always found something to detest.
