April 10th: DeAnn Hoagland “Life is Full of Choices”

9B0331D1-A573-4CB2-A9FF-9E917CF79537

Life is full of choices. Today I will choose to be a “fit’ mom!

Together we will discuss 3 life-changing principles. Then set the immediate and long term goals you want to make based on biblical truths for being ‘fit.’

Hi, I am DeAnn Hoagland. I am the blessed wife of Todd Hoagland and together we have 5 grown children. I am thrilled to be sharing openly the power of making good biblical choices in your life and the eternal impact these daily choices have on you and your loved ones.

God placed a desire in my heart to be healthy while walking with both my parents through their surgeries and a battle with Leukemia. My dad was later killed in a tragic farming accident and within a year of this tragedy my husband of 16 years led our family through a divorce. Thankfully through these trials and even today, God continues to teach me what it means to take care of my temple. He blesses in both the giving and the taking away because both are for the sake of His kingdom. Often it is in the taking away that our true love and trust is revealed, which is a great mercy to us and usually to others. I am excited to share with you that being a ‘fit” mom takes discipline and good choices based on TRUTH as well as Gratitude for the people that God places in your life!
Corinthians 6:19-20 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are NOT your own! You were bought at a price, therefore honor God with your bodies.

March 13th: Gretchen Corn “There is Hope: A Christian Perspective on Mental Health”

E1EE4B5E-32AF-45D9-811C-7C2B86029894

Gretchen Corn is a Licensed Professional Counselor residing in Robinson, IL. Originally from the Chicago suburbs, she has lived in Robinson, for almost a decade, with her husband Ryan and children Kayla (10), Dylan (7) and Sarah (5) and two oversized cats. She loves traveling, nature, audiobooks and time with friends. Her passion to walk alongside others in their trials led her to receive her master’s degree in clinical counseling from Eastern Illinois University in 2012. Her degree is waiting to be fully professionally utilized while she focuses on her exciting calling as a stay at home mom.
As a follower of Christ and mental health advocate, Gretchen hopes to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. The National Institute of Mental Health states that 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experience mental illness in a given year. The World Health Organization says 1 in 4 families in the world have a mentally ill loved one that they are caring for.
How do we define mental illness and what is our role, as believers, in helping those burdened by these struggles? Changing opinions on mental health is especially challenging within the Christian community where it is often seen not only as a sign of personal weakness but also as an indicator of spiritual problems. What can we do to change this dangerous and painful misconception? Is there hope for them and for the caregiver? Please join us as we learn more about these issues and have opportunity for discussion.

November 7th: Amanda Sharma “A Twist of Faith”

E3F10F6B-FF33-4332-9E32-E7658BA2A38C

What are the chances of having a child diagnosed with a disease that is so rare, that there are roughly 100 cases ever recorded?

Never in a million years did I think that we would have a son diagnosed with a rare illness. Let alone make the hardest decision of our lives to place him in hospice care.

Why would God give us a beautiful son, only to take him away so quickly?
We should be mad at Him.
Are we being punished for something?
But….we’re good people, right?!
So, why do these things happen?

During the most pivotal point in my life, I should have strayed from God.
But, I found Him instead.

God is pretty good at changing our path right when we think we’ve got it all figured out.
I’ve learned that you can either “go” through something or you can “grow” through something.

This Twist of Faith in my life taught me how He had been preparing me for this all along.
