Hello! I'm Frannie
Sweet sister! I’m so glad you are here!
I’m on a mission to help women become healthier, stronger and more confident using God’s Word so they can live fully, freely, and fearlessly.
As a formally trained educator, I’m all about life-long learning, however my focus is not on teaching you, rather empowering you with essential tools to your best life, the way God intended: fully, freely and healthfully!
That used to be me, well decades ago when I wanted to hide from the world, which was difficult to do.
You see, as a 21 year old girl, I was tipping the scales at 300+lbs. (See picture below) I felt as though I was watching my very own life happen from the sidelines. I’d experienced many rock bottom moments to that point…
- taking cake covered in Dawn dish soap from the garbage to satisfy my sugar addiction
- waking up barely sober enough to recognize the guy snoring beside me
- outgrowing the largest size at Lane Bryant
These are only but a few…sadly, they weren’t my last.
But after an encounter with a Bally’s trainer which jumpstarted my health journey, God soon after took over.
After losing and maintaining nearly 125 lbs. (pre-Covid, friends) I’ve learned to embrace life and all it has to offer. I’m an avid traveler (I’ve visited every U.S. state except Alaska), a thrill seeker (hello, skydiving!) and love to play laser tag with my nieces and nephews (only if I’m wearing a good sports bra.)
I’m real and vulnerable, which people tell me makes me relatable. I love face to face contact (and lots of hugs!), but I love connecting with others through my private Facebook group, Free and Favored, Instagram Reels, Facebook Lives, fitness classes, and Bible studies.
But I most love connecting with others on my podcast–The Shine with Frannie Show. Here I share and bare–sharing real-life stories that might make you laugh so hard you’ll pee your pants (without even doing a jumping jack) or cry so hard your mascara will look like Tammy Faye Baker. (RIP, Tammy.) Check it out wherever you listen to podcasts.
I published my first book after being let go from my job in February 2020: “From ‘You’re Fired!’ to ‘That Girl’s on Fire'”; this can be purchased on Amazon. And I’m currently working on another book about life’s disappointments. Man alive, I’ve had my share of these “divine appointments.”
But enough about me…let’s connect so I can learn about YOU!
