I am so excited about this event because it is different than anything I’ve been a part of.
If you’ve never been to a health conference, let me just you, they are magnets for new age mysticism and weirdos promoting pseudo-spirituality and earth worship. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard these nonsensical platitudes like ”Trust in nature” or “The universe will provide a path” I would be retired. Hello? The universe is not providing a path for anyone. It is God, the creator of the universe, that is providing for us, whether we acknowledge Him or not.
The earth was created by God for us, and everything we need to thrive and heal comes from the earth.
We are not here because a random speck exploded followed by billions of statistically impossible causeless genetic mutations. We live in an intelligently designed universe that exists in perfect order and we are all created for a purpose. We live in a cause-and-effect world and our Heavenly Father has given us free will to choose how we live our lives. We are free to choose to love Him and serve Him and have a relationship with Him, or we can choose to reject Him. God loves us so much that He will provide for us and bless us even while we reject Him. That is the most beautiful demonstration of perfect love.
Our choices and actions always produce results, some good and some bad. Cancer is the result of three things humans are doing wrong: environmental pollution, poor diet and lifestyle choices, and holding on to stress and negative emotions. The good news is that you have the power to reverse disease and create health in your body by changing the way you live your life and trusting God to lead you in the path of healing. Everything I did to heal was built on this belief system.
Wow, I didn’t mean to rabbit trail that hard, but when the Spirit moves you and the words are flowing, you just gotta go with it. Anyway there’s always lots of valuable info about physical healing, diet, supplements, alternative therapies, etc. at health conferences, but often there is very little focus on emotional and spiritual healing like getting right with God, changing who you are, discovering your purpose in life, eliminating stress, and mending broken relationships. These are critical components to health that can be total barriers to healing. For example, if you radically change your diet but still hate your dad, you may not get well.
Last year I was contacted by a woman name Suzi Griswold. She and a small group of people had a vision for a health and healing conference created by believers for believers and asked if I would be interested in speaking. Now it’s always exciting when someone asks you to speak at an event, but the reality of speaking means time away from family and work, travel expenses, hotel and meals. This is the first year for this event, they didn’t have any other speakers that I knew of, and there wasn’t any offer to pay me anything. Those were all good reasons to say no, but I knew in my heart that I should say yes.
Since then some incredible people have come on board to speak and they even asked me to emcee!
-My friend Ty Bollinger author of Cancer: Step Outside the Box
-My friend Judy Seeger ND, naturopath and cancer healing expert
-My friend and fellow chemo-free survivor and blogger Cortney Cambell
-Dr. Linda Isaacs MD, cancer specialist and colleague of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez in NYC
-Celebrity nutritionist “The Juice Lady” Cherie Calbom
And many more!

Now I am so pumped about this thing I can hardly wait!
Here’s a little more info that I copied from their website:
The Healing Strong Conference and Retreat is designed to provide vital information and support to those facing cancer or other life threatening diagnoses and are seeking wisdom about holistic and alternative treatment options.
In the general sessions, speakers and guest panelists will be sharing foundational principles that support healing. And in the small group interactive sessions you will be able to ask hard questions and learn from others who have successfully implemented these strategies.
This event is 100% driven by volunteers, all of whom have been impacted personally by cancer and know the importance of seeking knowledge from credible resources and connecting in person with others who have succeeded. From the kitchen angels who will be working with the retreat center to prepare healthy, delicious meals to the dozens of volunteers who are working behind the scenes to ensure that the weekend runs smoothly, the hope of the HealingStrong team is that each participant will walk away knowing they have been empowered in a manner that was loving and hope-filled. The theme for this event is:
Purposeful Healing Through Intentional Living.
Healing Strong will be a life-changing weekend that will educate and empower you to create a lifestyle that promotes healing in your body, mind and spirit. I hope you can make it.
