Get Phoenix Home to Her Family

Michelle “Phoenix” Pyykonnen is a dear friend, SBFF, and aunty to two amazing nephews who are the apples of her eye. Yesterday, we received urgent prayer requests because her five-year-old nephew had been in an accident and needed a miracle. Now with Jesus, her little nephew didn’t win this battle on earth. This is not something anyone can explain, but comfort and peace for them are our prayers from Tennessee.

Words cannot express how heartbroken we are for her and her family. Phoenix has been such a cheerleader over the years for our fitness community, a close friend to many of us who have been around for a while, but also a second “mom” to her nephews.

It is on our hearts to help our dear friend within our SBFF community and possibly beyond, while she and her husband travel 18 hours with two huge dogs to be with her family at this time. The travel will incur non-budgeted expenses that we would like to help cover.

If you feel so led, please help Phoenix and her husband at this time. She’s going to have to be a rock for her family right now. We would love to have the pressure of finances relieved from her worries.

And above all, please pray for her and her family now.


Suzanne, Levi, Bethany, and Katy (Team SBF)
