Bekah Ware is a hardworking wife and mother of 3 small, energetic children. If you asked her as she was growing what she wanted to be some day, the answer always was wife and mother. Little did she know that one day she would be presented with the opportunity to do something beyond her wildest dreams – own her own business. It was something that she never thought of or even considered a possibility.
After graduating from Newark High School in 2004, a year early, Bekah went on to do a brief semester at the local community college FLCC before finally landing at SUNY Potsdam. There she received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 3 years while juggling multiple jobs to pay for as much of it herself as possible. Her hopes were to become a Counselor and help those in need.
Bekah met Mike in college while serving in Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and you could say it was love at first guitar playing. The weekend after they graduated college the two of them were married. Before Bekah decided what the next step in her academic career would be they settled in upstate NY and started a family. Pushing her desire of going back to school to become a Counselor to the back burner, Bekah started on the journey of wife and mother. It was more than she ever thought it would be and in 4 and 1/2 short years they had 3 children.
Energetic, outgoing and balancing motherhood with the grace of an elephant, Bekah set out to fill her limited free time with something else. She got her outgoing personality from her father, creativity from her mother and an inability to sit still from both parents. These traits drove Bekah to start leading a fitness ministry called REFIT at her church. She planned events, ran campaigns, and wrote blogs to recruit and empower participants, using her Psychology degree in ways she never imagined. Bekah had thought that one day she would be sitting in an office helping people. Instead, her degree that she once thought would never get used found a new and exciting purpose.
The gymnasium filled with women, who were there because of the marketing strategy and tools used. People were empowered and inspired because of blogs of personal struggle and triumph. Steady communication happened and resources were steadily presented and readily accessible. The ability to help others slowly became a reality.
Although Bekah may love to be on the go, living in rural upstate NY all her life has fueled a deep appreciation of quiet, reading, running and the smell of apple blossoms in the surrounding orchards. Either that or the promise of escaping her three small charges might be the motivating factor. She isn’t sure which!
