My Story

My name is Lori Crock and I have been married to my husband Al for 33 years. We are blessed with two children and our new son-in-law. We are parishioners at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Plain City, Ohio.

I converted to Catholicism more than 30 years ago and thanks be to God for my husband Al's strong faith which continues to inspire me on my faith journey.

I enjoy being active in our parish as a Eucharistic Minister, Adoration Ministry Coordinator and Walking with Purpose participant. I am a Cursillista in the Columbus area. I am blessed to take communion to patients at our local hospital.

I have always loved to write, and formerly worked in marketing serving many wonderful Catholic organizations in the Columbus area including  the Office of Vocationsseekholiness.com. Through that experience, and in coordinating the Seminarian Bike Tour, I began to understand the critical role of discerning and being true to God's vocational call in our lives.

Currently, I enjoy writing a monthly column, Holy and Healthy, for The Catholic Times and I contribute to the Knights of Columbus newsletter in our parish and Columbus Catholic Women's Conference blog. 

The Holy Spirit has has inspired me to speak about faith and fitness and I humbly  welcome these opportunities for spiritual growth.

I enjoy being a SoulCore Leader and I am very excited to share SoulCore Rosary prayer with strengthening, stretching and functional movement at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, Sunbury, and at other parishes and locations in the Columbus Diocese.

SoulCore has enriched my prayer life and deepened my relationship with Jesus and his Blessed Mother. Praying the Rosary is truly life-changing!

I am also blessed to work as a Kettlebell Strength Coach helping all ages and fitness levels get stronger at my gym MoveStrong Kettlebells in Dublin, Ohio. 

I view my journey with Jesus as a great adventure and I am overwhelmed with gratitude to share my passion for faith and fitness with you.
