Ginny Dent Brant is a speaker and writer who grew up in the halls of power of Washington D.C. She has served as a counselor, educator, wellness advocate, and adjunct professor. She served as a trustee of the Baptist International Mission Board for eight years, and she and her husband participated in mission work in Yemen, Gaza, the Czech Republic, Russia, China, and Romania. Brant’s award-winning book, “Finding True Freedom: From the White House to the World,” was endorsed by the late Chuck Colson. To view Brant’s cancer prevention blog and more information visit https://www.ginnybrant.com/ (https://www.ginnybrant.com/). Four months after her mother died of cancer, author and speaker Ginny Dent Brant was told by doctors she also had breast cancer, and an aggressive form of it. Having just watched her mother’s plight, Brant decided to take a different approach and immersed herself in research to find out what she could do in addition to traditional treatments to help her doctors beat her cancer. The steps she took to change her lifestyle during her six-year battle with cancer are now chronicled in her new book “Unleash Your God-given Healing: Eight Steps to Prevent and Survive Cancer.” “My diagnosis sent me on a quest to discover why I got an aggressive and deadly cancer for which I had no risk factors or genetic indicators,” says Brant. “I read over 50 books on cancer written by doctors, scientists, nutritionists, etc. I attended medical and cancer summits online and in-person conferences where cancer experts lecture. I searched the medical and science journals tirelessly to connect the dots between the Bible, nutrition, the science of how the immune system works, and conventional and integrative medicine. My doctors were amazed when my blood work six weeks after chemotherapy showed that my red and white blood cells and platelets were all within normal ranges. They called me their ‘Rock Star’ Cancer Patient because this usually takes two to five years.” In “Unleash Your God-given Healing,” Brant discusses in-depth how nutrition, lifestyle, integrative and conventional medicine, as well as biblical wisdom work together to boost the human body’s immune system. Additionally, Brant’s book features commentary from practicing oncologist and medical researcher, Dr. Robert Elliott, Director of the Elliott-Elliott-Head Breast Cancer Research and Treatment Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Brant says the steps she took to improve her prognosis and rebuild her immune system and overall health can also be used to combat viruses such as COVID-19 as well as many other chronic diseases. “I believe this COVID-19 is a wakeup call for us to realize we need to take better care of our bodies,” says Brant. “This disease is clearly worse in those who have underlying conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, lung issues, and poorly functioning immune systems. Doctors agree that some of the ailments we struggle with are either caused or made worse by our own lifestyle choices and lack of common sense. Since rebuilding my immune system during and after my cancer journey, I have avoided the usual yearly colds, flu or viruses. Although I’m limiting going out in public and I’m practicing the CDC guidelines, I know that if I do get exposed to COVID-19, my immune function is strong and my own body will take care of it in general.” Brant says her battle with cancer has strengthened another necessary element of healing—her faith.

Julie’s first book, “Unexpected Love: God's Heart Revealed through Jesus' conversations with Women” answers the question, Does the Bible depict women as second-class citizens of the Kingdom?

Now she is working on her latest book, "Equal." This biblical look at what scripture really says about Women in the Ministry will set you free from false religious trappings and erroneous teachings. https://www.facebook.com/juliezinecoleman http://www.juliecoleman.org/?fbclid=IwAR29nqumPIuo43Y_L3GgPVbaWG0OltCU8FboNSAoIfPf_-NkX1O7OyS_nLA (http://www.juliecoleman.org/) Your Host as Always:  Dawn Scott Damon is a pastor, speaker, podcast host, Freedom Coach, and award-winning author.

This one is a hot potato! Yet, It’s our heart to have a conversation about Women in Biblical Ministry. What does God have to say about it? In this 3-part series, I (Dawn Damon) along with my 2 Co-hosts Julie Coleman and Dena Dyer, take an in-depth look at the Word of God to see what the Bible truly teaches. We invite you, with fresh eyes… less bias and an open heart to join us. In this 3 part series- We are going to ·     Consider Jesus and his interaction with women. ·     Look at tough questions and scriptures, Was Paul really against women? ·     How Patriarchy has influenced the church and the lens through which we view things. ·     Offer a mini-summit to go deeper. Julie Coleman helps others to understand and know an unexpected God. A popular conference and retreat speaker, she holds an M.A. in biblical studies. Julie is the managing editor for Arise Daily, an online devotional by members of the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association. When she is not glaring at her computer, she spends time with her grandchildren, gardening, or walking her neurotic dog. More on Julie can be found at unexpectedgod.com and Facebook. http://www.denadyer.com/ (Dena Dyer) loves Jesus, her family, all things literary, coffee, and British television. She’s an author of ten books and many articles, a professional speaker, and a book proposal coach who’s been married to her hubby Carey for 23 wonderful years (and a couple they don’t talk about). They have two young adult sons, Jordan and Jackson, and in 2020 the family was “rescued” by their Maltese pup, Sully. Her passion is sharing words of humor and hope with wounded and weary people, and she enjoys singing on the praise team at the church where her husband is the worship pastor. She spends too much time online or in the fast food drive-through--but she and the Lord are working on it.

Afton Rorvik savors words, flavored coffee, time outside, and living connected. She happily embraces her introversion as a gift and celebrates her courage-giving faith in God. She writes about the intersection of faith and friendship and introversion, including living as a Storm Sister. She has worked in the publishing industry for decades as both an editor and a writer and now writes with other women of faith as part of the Redbud Writers Guild. She seeks to embrace the word grateful in all seasons of life. Afton and her husband John have intentionally cultivated a friendship in their 30+ years of marriage as they raised and launched two children. Afton Rorvik's new book , Living Connected: An Introvert’s Guide to Friendship, promotes introversion as a friendship-building gift. Introverts (and those who love them) will learn how to live connected, something that God calls all of us to do, even in this these pandemic, divisive days. In her warm, conversational, story-loving voice, introvert Afton Rorvik looks at friendship one word at a time and describes creative and practical ways to live connected in a quiet, thoughtful way.
