I’m still buzzing from the Healing Strong Conference in Atlanta this past weekend.
It was a life changing event, better than I could have ever imagined….
The people. The presenters.The presence of God. Check.
And I have to admit, it was also a bit surreal. Every time I turned around someone was saying,
“Hi Chris, you don’t know me but I feel like I know you, and I just wanted to thank you for your website and the work you are doing…”
I know some of my readers are going to laugh and say, “That was me!”
To all my new friends, thank you for taking the time to introduce yourself, share your story, and encourage me. I left there feeling ten feet tall and I’m looking forward to hearing your healing stories in the coming months and years. Keep me posted!
In the meantime, I was able to shoot a ton of video of the other speakers as well as some amazing natural survivors which I will be sharing on the blog in the coming weeks.
First on the list are my friends Kevin and Cortney Campbell. Cortney is a chemo-free Hodgkins lymphoma survivor since 2008. Long time readers may remember that hers was the first natural survivor story I shared besides my own. They were some of the key players in making Healing Strong happen. And I thought it would be fun to shoot a follow up video with them in person rather than over the internet.
One of the things I love about Cortney is her will to live. Like me, she was determined to do whatever it took to to get well, which for her literally meant holding her nose to get through meals of
Budwig and green smoothies every day.
She may have complained a little, but she didn’t make excuses, and she didn’t quit.
Also Kevin should be nominated for Survivor Spouse of the Year. He is a champion,
and by following God’s direction, helped save her life. Pay close attention to what Kevin says.
There is some deep wisdom in this man.
I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.
