Hey Sole Sister,

When was the last time you had to have a permission slip signed? Elementary school, your middle school church retreat? Yeah, me too.

One of my favorite authors of all time, Brené Brown describes her concept of “permission slips” in her newest book "Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone” and it is givi...

Hi everyone! My name is Kara Korosec and I’m so excited to share my story with the Sole Fitness community. I’m so inspired by everything Sole Fitness is doing to encourage women to be healthy and love themselves!

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been self-conscious of my appearance. I’ve always been ‘petite’ as my mom likes to say, at just over 5’ tall. I’ve neve...

I feel like I don’t even need to introduce this #solesister because she is like the Mayor of Wilmington - everyone knows Ashley Bowers! And if they don’t yet, then they are about to...

Ashley boldly made the move to this coastal town two years ago to tell students at UNCW who Jesus is, how He has radically changed her life, and how He could do the same for them....

hey sole sister,


This 3-letter conjunction makes me feel free and secure. This word has allowed me the freedom to feel and experience one, two, even seven or one hundred things at one time and listen to my compass a little closer. This pattern of thinking that includes more “ands” and less “buts” is changing me. It is changing my relationships. And it is ch...

It was fifth grade the first time I remember calling myself fat. A school picture taken at an unflattering angle revealed “fat rolls” that made me feel incredibly insecure. ELEVEN. YEARS. OLD. I should have been thinking about recess or whether or not my parents were going to let me watch 'One Saturday Morning'… not “I hate how fat I am.” 

Since 1...

Introducing the one & only, Rita Griep! This Sole Sister is a one-of-a-kind, with the most evident gifts of hospitality, compassion, and unconditional love. Not to mention, she is beautiful both inside and out!

First, let’s chat about Rita’s unbelievable heart for people. Y’all, it’s UNREAL. She is the world’s best wife to her hubby Zach and the coolest/most car...

Jesus never promised us an easy journey, but he did promise never to leave us or forsake us. I’ve been mulling over this concept for months now. In times where I’ve felt sad and uncertain, I lean on this eternal truth that Jesus was forsaken on our behalf, which means we cannot be put on the chopping block. It’s not like we are standing facing two team captains...

The radio was on quietly in the background as me and two friends were cruising around town on our way to our favorite dinner spot - when suddenly amidst the momentary lull in conversation I heard my JAM come on. I cranked the stereo and began, without much thought, singing the lyrics to this well-known pop song. As I looked around to see if the whole car was as...

hey sole sister,

I’ve been processing a lot lately. I’m a woman so… obviously. I feel something bubbling up inside me and I want to share it with you. Each year, on my birthday, I pick a new word. I started when I was 25 and was facing graduation from graduate school, the associated unemployment that comes with carrying two degrees (anyone else been there? Just...

Once upon a time I yelled at God. Yup. you read that right. I (me) yelled (cussed) AT God. Now, before you throw stones or burn me at the stake, allow me to be just a little vulnerable and real with you. Lately, I’ve been a little frustrated with God. I’ve been walking through this season of brokenness and healing for what seems like more than enough time. In m...
