Because of her interest in preventative health, Karen has always been intrigued by the concept of “Blue Zones” and was blessed to live on the island of Okinawa for three years. There she witnessed an amazing culture. Silver-haired Okinawan men easily pedaled bikes up steep hills and women in their sixties hoisted weighty metal garbage cans and sprinted to the trucks. Businessmen gathered outside in suits for morning calisthenics. She found that the healthy plant-based food fueling Okinawans was some of the tastiest on the planet. Returning to the U.S., she could see America’s health crisis so clearly. Since joining the Health & Wellness team at Christian Care Ministry, Karen has had the joy of seeing type II diabetes and hypertension reversed in her family. Karen also has her own testimony of overcoming the flares and challenges of rheumatoid arthritis and avoiding the side effects of autoimmune drugs through this anti-inflammatory way of eating. The desire of her heart is to help Americans reclaim their health.

Wendy Ferguson

Hello, my name is Wendy Ferguson, my husband and I have four adult children. Two of them are married and have given us five grandchildren: Holland, Wakely, Cohen, Seren, and Noelle. We both went to Rhema Bible Training Institute in Tulsa, Ok and now live in sunny Central Florida which allows us to participate in an abundance of outdoor activities.  We love the beach but grew up in the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley. One of my fondest memories was exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway. The time spent hiking vertical mountain trails, or inner tubing down raging rapids, or even snow skiing in frigid temps, have taught me that our Heavenly Father is even more vast then I had imagined, and that He has provided everything we need for Life and Happiness. Learning to respect the blessings that God has provided have made me who I am today. Making health conscience meals packed with fruits and vegetables as solutions to offset fast-food options has created an environment of sustainably healthy living in our family. As a little girl, my mother gave me space for my very own garden, and boy was I proud to eat those vegetables. I’ve worked hard to pass that on to our children and our children’s children. My goal is to help everyone I meet to reach their full potential and become the healthiest person possible body, soul, and spirit.
