Bethel's Wellness Seminar: I'm Speaking!

Each year, I look forward to Bethel's annual wellness seminar.  Our journey to gluten-free started two years ago after listening to Dr. Rhonda Nelson teach on it.  I learned so much and our family has had noted increased health since then.

This year, I am honored to speak at Homegrown Wellness on Match 16th, along with other amazing health advocates! Beni Johnson and Dr. Nelson will be the main speakers (always loaded with knowledge and insight), and the rest of us are running workshops.  If you are interested in attending, you can register here.  The great thing is, the seminar will be streaming live and you can register to watch online from anywhere in the world!  I am not sure if my workshop will be the one that streams live, but no matter who it is, I know it will be well worth a watch.

My workshop is entitled Real Food for Real Families: Finding Peace and Joy at the Dinner Table with Healthy Meals.  I will be sharing a bit of our family's health journey; how we transitioned from refined to whole ingredients, techniques and strategies that worked, and how I went from being chronically lethargic to full of energy in a very short amount of time, just by changing a few things in my eating habits.  There will be a time of question and answer, and we will wrap it up in prayer.  I'm quite excited to share the best of all I've learned from the past eight years of researching and developing a healthy lifestyle.

  1. I will be watching from home again this year! The seminar has been such a blessing to our family and our eating. I had planned to come, but my son is leaving back to YWAM just a couple of days after the seminar so wanted to be here for him. Hopefully next year!

  2. Oh wow what an opportunity for you Katie. Hope it all goes well! How amazing that your church does this, something we don't see too often but is a huge part of our lives!

  3. How do we stream it? Do I still register? Couldn't find any info on the Wellness page:) Was hoping I could!!


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
