Five Reasons You HAVE to Attend FP4H Summit THE JOY ADVENTURE:


  1. Location, Location, Location – Want to attend in your pajamas? Okay! Your beautiful front porch? You got it! Your kitchen? No problem! Come as you are, where ever you, on July 24 and 25. Yes, that’s right. Our Summit 2020, The Joy Adventure, will be our first-ever virtual Summit. The Joy Adventure will provide live and prerecorded seminars and breakouts for you to watch at your convenience. You will even have the opportunity to engage with our speakers during the live sessions.
  2. The Speakers – What a line-up of the best of our FP4H family! To name a few, Carol Kent shares from her new book, Staying Power, and don’t we need it! These past months have been stressful on bodies, marriages, and finances. Carol will share strategies to help is “stay with it.” Carole Lewis is sharing from her heart the things that bring her strength and eternal joy. Pam Farrell, whom I have deemed the Queen of Joy! Will energize you with her infectious joy! Karen Porter will share her experience and insights from writing the FP4H resource, My Place for Discovery. And who hasn’t been changed from Grace Fox’s study, Forever Changed? All of these speakers and more will be a part of The Joy Adventure. And we want you to be a part also. (You can see all the speakers at The Joy Adventure here.)
  3. The Need – Our mission at First Place for Health is to provide a Biblical wellness program that enables individuals to achieve balance in spirit, soul, mind, andbody based on giving Christ first place. The Center for Disease Control tells us that obesity is a common, serious, and costly disease. The prevalence of obesity was 42.4% in 2017~2018. From 1999–2000 through 2017–2018, the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% to 42.4%, and the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%. Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer that are some of the leading causes of preventable, premature death. The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the United States was $147 billion in 2008 US dollars; the medical cost for people who have obesity was $1,429 higher than those of average weight.[1] As you can see from these statistics, diets are not working. We find our hope for health when we invite Christ into our journey.
  4. The Take Away – The value of this two-day conference is unprecedented for FP4H. Registration is just $49.00. You will be able to hear all keynote speakers, Carol Kent, Pam Farrel, and Vicki Heath. Worship with Laura Macon Heath is an added value as well as two Body & Soul Fitness workouts! Oh, and did I mention our virtual shopping bookstore? New logo-wear, new Bible studies, and much more. AND, you get unlimited access to the recordings from Summit for 30 days.
  5. The Impact – What might your future look like if you are finally able to lose weight, lower your blood pressure, conquer heart disease, and reverse type II diabetes? The possibilities are endless.

There will be a prayer room available throughout the event for you to visit and share with someone ready to pray with you. At Summit, some of the best times happen when we stop in the hall to talk with others. Be sure and step into our online chat rooms during the event, and let us spend time together.
