Living on Purpose: Ernestine Shepherd World’s Oldest Female Bodybuilder

Living on Purpose: Ernestine Shepherd

If you are not inspired by this woman, then you just are not capable of being inspired. Breaking not only the Guiness Book of World Records, she has broken barriers related to age, as she brings to life the saying “age ain’t nothing but a number.” I originally learned about Ernestine on CBN and shared her story a few years ago as an inspiration to my followers. I am also on a similar track as I realize that I must be healthy if I want to live all the years God has for me, so that I may continue to live on purpose. Ernestine will be 78 this year and she still looks awesome! So watch the video and I pray you are inspired to do better with your physical health. Who says that you cannot be fit and live a healthy lifestyle at any age.

Ernestine has also turned it into a brand. Determined, Dedicated and Disciplined! Exactly what we need to live on purpose because the path may not always be smooth, clear, or easy. But with determination you will have the incentive to keep going. Through dedication you will stay committed to your goals. Discipline will become your best friend as you develop new habits and ways of accomplishing things. I encourage you to read her book and glean some pearls of wisdom from her journey.

Thank you Ernestine for showing us how to live on purpose and sharing your story with the world.
