[accordion][accordion_item open=”” title=”every body matters”]

We believe that God desires for all of us to live an abundant life. He has a plan and a purpose for every body. The best way we can live out our purpose is by making healthy choices. When we believe the lie that God doesn’t care about our health, we are more likely to make unhealthy choices. This leads to a downward spiral, leaving us feeling fatigued, depressed, and sick. But when we purpose to maximize our health, through proper nutrition and exercise, we will have the energy and confidence we need to live out our purpose, and ultimately, bring Him glory! Let us inspire you, no matter what your current health status is, to take simple steps towards better health…because every body matters!

Cancer is a stark reminder that this world doesn’t work as it should. God created humans to live forever in health, but sin has ruined this. We now live in a world where we are defined by our needs. Our bodies are not just weak, they are wasting away (1 Cor 15:42-44). We are subject to pain, sickness, and suffering. Cancer is just one of the ways this brokenness manifests. In the midst of suffering, it is normal to question the goodness of God. This message invites you to an authentic faith that learns to trust God in the midst of suffering. After all, He, Himself, suffered!

We all have packed schedules. Families to care for. Bills to pay. Jobs to do. We may not see exercise as a gift, but it is! Our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made…to move!! We were designed to exercise! Nearly every body function improves as a result of regular exercise. Bones get stronger. The heart gets bigger and more efficient. Immunity is enhanced. Cancer risk is decreased. This message will give you an in-depth look at the human body, and will open your eyes to the simple truth – we were made to move!

Cancer is so hard. It robs us of our time. Our health. Our finances. Our quality of life. Our independence. Can anything good come out of it? This message is full of stories of hope. Hear about people who are purposing to thrive in their cancer recovery. They are walking by faith, prayerfully asking for wisdom every step of the way. You will be inspired to trust Jesus as you walk down this road to recovery. No one walks this journey alone!
