Origin of Praise Exercise

Founder - Praise Exercise Mothe
Teacher Wu Mei-Yun

Teacher Wu Mei-Yun, the founder and a native of Huatan, Changhua, Taiwan, was originally an elementary school teacher. At the age of 29, she was baptized at the Taipei Gongguan Presbyterian Church. After baptism, she gave up her stable teaching job to study religious music at Taiwan Theological College.

After graduating from the theological college, she served in music ministry in the Presbyterian Church until she moved to the United States with her husband. After her husband's retirement, Teacher Wu and her husband returned to Taiwan, dedicating themselves to children's music education for ten years. During this time, Teacher Wu created a lot of children's music and educational materials, which were used by many kindergartens as music textbooks for children.

After ten years in children's music education, Teacher Wu's career was flourishing. One day, while having a meal and chatting with four kindergarten principals of different religious faiths, one of them said to her, "You have reached the peak in your children's music career, and since you have studied theology, you should serve your Lord." Responding to God's call, Teacher Wu and her husband went back to the theological college in the United States and began 12 years of missionary work.

After retiring from missionary work and returning to Taiwan, Teacher Wu would exercise every morning at Rongxing Garden near her home. She noticed that most of the exercise groups she joined in the past three months were from other religions. So, she prayed to God: "God, please let me create an exercise group that belongs to You." Thus, Teacher Wu began to write songs and design movements using Bible verses, creating a set of Praise Exercises that allow simultaneous exercise and worship of God.
