iGnite - Kelly GlasgowRoots:
I grew up in Dallas. My husband grew up in Houston. We moved to Austin in 1983 for my husband to get his MBA, and we never left!

Family Life:
I met my husband, William, at Vanderbilt. We married the January following graduation. We have five wonderful children and five beautiful grandchildren. Merrill (30) and Chase Laguarta live in Austin with their three daughters (5, 3, and 15 months). Megan (29) lives in NYC. Walker (27) and his wife Haley live in Oahu with their two boys (23 months and 6 months). Molly Frances (25) and her husband Joe Denham live in Austin. And last, but not least, Mallory (23) lives in Chicago.

Work Life:
I am a Registered Nurse (currently unemployed).

The biggest lesson I’ve learned through my iGnite experience…
Hmmm…that’s a hard one. I have so many lessons learned through iGnite but I would say my biggest take away is that there is so much wisdom to glean from all ages
of women. I have learned as much from the younger women as I have from my peer group. These young ladies are mature and very cool!
The best advice I’ve ever gotten… “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.”  Matthew 6:34

As a mother of five children, I have done my share (and more) of worrying. I knew as a Christian it was not biblical to worry, but I was very stubborn in this area. I think I somehow believed the amount of worry correlated with my love for my family or some such nonsense. I did bible studies on worry, read books on worry, but yep, you guessed it, I continued to worry. I am a very slow learner. I didn’t release my kids until my son joined the army. At that point, it became very apparent to my that I WAS NOT IN CONTROL. All of those wasted hours worrying…as I loosened my grip on my children, I had a new outlook on life. When our son deployed to Afghanistan, I didn’t want his absence and my worry to define me. Instead, I put into action what I knew but never truly embraced…God has a plan, and I need to trust in that. So there you have it. I let go and trusted God. Every day is a new day, and daily I have to renew my trust. I must admit that I am so grateful that I’m not in control. It’s too big of a job for me! Do I still worry some? YES of course…I am a work in progress 🙂

Something people may not know about me…
I am a NCIS junkie.

My guilty pleasure…
A glass of bubbly at lunch.

I was born and raised into a family of five kids in Austin, four girls and one boy — lucky him. 🙂 I met my husband, Joe (Nebraska native), at Baylor. We graduated in 2013, married in 2014 and moved to the “Big City” (Dallas). We recently moved back to Austin for Joe’s new job. It has been a blast living about 1 mile from my parents. Don’t worry, my husband agrees…I think. I currently manage a Facebook Auction (clothing boutique) called “The Find Auctions”.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned through my iGnite experience…
One of my favorite things about moving back to Austin is getting back into iGnite. I started iGnite in high school. Neissa (hail the queen) taught me the importance of resistance training, consistency and that exercise can be fun (you can find me at Betty’s Dance Fit class every Tuesday — talk about FUN!). iGnite is where my love for exercise truly began.

I’m Most Inspired by…
One of my biggest inspirations is my mom, Kelly Glasgow. If you know her, you agree. She raised five children while maintaining friendships, her health/mental sanity, volunteer obligations and dinner on the table. Her car was her home for about 16 years, carting her kids from school, to sports, to piano lessons, etc. I think my oldest sister’s 16th birthday was the best and scariest day of her life. She always had her calendar, snacks and a spanking spoon on hand. She is loving, loyal, kind and a whole lot of fun! (Shout out to my Cardio Blast gal pals! They inspire me every Wednesday.)

Something you may not know about me…
I have two different colored eyes.

My guilty pleasure… 
Chips & queso/salsa. If you ever need a date to Maudie’s, I am your girl!
