I recently posted this blog but somehow the video code was eaten up! I’ve added the video I spoke of below, and if you cannot see it you can view it here, “Illness Advocate’s Passion Stems From Onset of Rheumatoid Arthritis.”
Last fall a popular health activist organization had a video contest asking us to share our journey about being a health advocate. I didn’t win, but taking the time to share about my story of how I went from a stirring for illness ministry to where Rest Ministries is today was a winning experience!
Here I share about how I originally thought I would work for a non profit organization, but after my diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 24, I began my own “health promotion activities,” by starting Rest Ministries and in 2002, Invisible Illness Awareness Week. Through both of these experiences of finding my health mission, I have had the honor of working with many activist websites and organizations and the joy of working with you!
