Take Time for God

By OneShare Health on 12:23 PM on January 11, 2024

Have you ever opened a new bible study or self-care book, excited for how it will change your life? Hoping it will spark a fire deep within and help you grow more? Now fast forward a week, month, or year only to find you are still in the first chapter. Sound familiar? Me too! Life happens and seems to never slow down. You have to stay late at work, go to the grocery store, make dinner, and put the kids to bed. Then you are exhausted and must prioritize the remaining hour left in the night. We are all guilty of this and typically Christ is left out or put to the side ‘until tomorrow’. Ever find yourself saying ‘I’m going to do better. I just need more time.’

Mastering the Art of Communication With Pastor Jeremy

By OneShare Health on 12:30 AM on September 12, 2023

From the very beginning, communication is woven into the fabric of our existence. As infants, we begin with the simplest forms of expression, but as we grow, our ability to convey thoughts and feelings evolves into a complex symphony. Why? Because we are designed for connection and community. Our means of communication are diverse, encompassing body language, facial expressions, and, of course, spoken words. While all these forms have their significance, let's focus on the immense power of our spoken language.

You Are Not Alone Ft. Christine Handy

By OneShare Health on 1:08 PM on August 31, 2023

In a world that often challenges us with unexpected twists, there are stories that shine as beacons of inspiration and hope. Christine Handy's journey is one such tale, woven from the threads of adversity, faith, and remarkable resilience. As a fellow breast cancer survivor, her journey resonates deeply with me, not only as an observer but as someone who has walked a similar path of overcoming life's toughest challenges.

Fate has a way of throwing curveballs even at those who seem to be living a charmed life. Christine, a former Victoria's Secret model, was riding the crest of success when the storm clouds of unforeseen medical issues began to gather. Her vibrant modeling career was put on pause as these issues took a terrifying turn for the worse. In the face of unimaginable odds, Christine's faith became her anchor.

Through those dark moments, when despair could have easily taken hold, she chose to place her trust in a higher power. With unwavering faith and determination, she emerged from the shadows healed and stronger than ever before. Her journey was not just a physical one; it was a transformation of the heart and spirit. 

Christine's incredible story became a testament to the power of resilience and the boundless strength that faith can provide. But her story didn't end with her own healing. Her experience ignited a passion within her – a burning desire to share her journey of hope with others who were facing their own trials. This passion led her to become a motivational speaker, a best-selling author, and a beacon of light for countless individuals.

Beyond the glitz and glamour of the runway, Christine's life took on new dimensions. She became a philanthropist, devoting her time and energy to serve on the boards of two non-profit organizations. Her path even led her back to the hallowed halls of academia, as she pursued further education at Harvard University – a testament to her unquenchable thirst for growth and learning, even at the age of 50.

In Christine's journey, we find a reflection of the human spirit's incredible capacity to endure, adapt, and rise above the challenges that life presents. Her story teaches us that even in the darkest of times, there is hope. Her journey reminds us that faith can guide us through the stormiest seas, and that adversity can be transformed into a stepping stone toward a purpose-driven life.

As a fellow breast cancer survivor, I am reminded that we are never truly alone on this journey. Christine's remarkable transformation from a model to a breast cancer warrior, and now a philanthropist and advocate, is a testament to the power of turning personal pain into a source of purpose. In her words, "I turned my mess into my message and my pain into my purpose." Through her story, she shows us that each of us holds within us the power to transform our own lives, to find strength in vulnerability, and to discover the incredible potential that lies within our journeys.

Is Health Sharing a Good Idea? Exploring the Benefits and Considerations

By OneShare Health on 2:20 PM on July 13, 2023

Health sharing originated in Amish and Mennonite communities which would pool their money to lighten the burden of individuals’ debts. Over time this practice evolved into more formal arrangements we now know as health care sharing ministries.

In the early 1980’s, health sharing emerged as an alternative to traditional health insurance, captivating the attention of individuals seeking more affordable and flexible healthcare options and growing in popularity since. The industry has since grown to sharing approximately $3 billion in medical expenses each year. But still some who are unfamiliar with the idea have questions. So, is health sharing truly a good idea? Let’s explore the benefits and considerations associated with healthcare sharing programs.

In reality, worrying just makes things worse! So, why do we worry? I believe it comes down to us being our own source. Source of what you ask, everything. We try to be our own source of strength, peace, joy, competence, etc.  We have the knowledge that our power is limited and there are certain situations that we have no power to change. This can leave us with only emotions to lean on. However, for believers in Christ, we have access to unlimited power to walk through life’s impossible situations.

Never Alone

By OneShare Health on 3:49 PM on April 13, 2023

I remember a time when my oldest son was just a year old and he had a severe seizure. It lasted a very longtime and he needed medical intervention. So much so that he had to be flow to a bigger hospital to care for him. My wife rode on the helicopter with him and all I could do is stand there watch my whole world take off not knowing how things would turn out. I mention this memory to tell you how alone I felt watching that helicopter flying away. There was a profound sense of emptiness, and fear overwhelmed me. In my brokenness, I cried out to Jesus to help me. I didn’t know what to ask Him for other than “HELP”! As I continued to lean into Jesus, I began to experience peace and comfort. I can’t explain why, it just was. As it turned out, my son ended up perfectly fine and is a strong healthy teenager that is a competitive swimmer. Oh, did I mention he is smart too. All that to say, Jesus was with me! Even before I cried out, He was with me! Hebrews 13 tell us "I will never leave you nor forsake you."   Psalm 139:7 ESV says “Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?” Jesus was speaking to His disciples in Matthew 28:20 ESV “teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Many times it’s because we don’t trust that God will come through for us, so we take matters into our own hands. Which, honestly, is the worst offense of all.

Let’s Get Logging: Food Journal Tips for Procrastinators

By OneShare Health on 11:00 AM on April 19, 2022

For some, keeping a food journal to lose weight is a tried-and-true way to keep track of a healthy diet plan. But, for others, our journals are full of nothing more than wide-eyed and ambitious—yet incomplete—plans to keep track of what goes in our body.

But it’s nothing to be ashamed of. We become all too familiar with the subsequent blank pages that follow our first few entries; motivation fades, and, honestly, there’s no way around it: following through with our well-intentioned plans can be a tough hurdle to overcome.

Write it Out! How Journaling Can Help Your Health

By OneShare Health on 11:00 AM on April 14, 2022

Here’s some mental health advice that’s long overdue: start journaling!

 

For as long as people have been able to write, they’ve been recording their thoughts. In fact, one of the earliest instances of journaling occurs in the Meditations of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, which date back all the way to the 2nd century AD. Sure, not all of us are busy ruling an empire or pondering the “transience of the physical world,” but each day presents us with new and unforeseen challenges that can make it difficult to keep our heads on straight. That’s where journaling for stress and anxiety comes in.

What a great time of the year! It’s time we celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus. His story is one of awe and wonder. The impossible was made possible by a loving and powerful God.

OneShare Health Charity Spotlight: WTF – Winning The Fight!

By OneShare Health on 3:00 PM on November 10, 2021

We spoke with Kathy O’Keefe about drug addiction and prevention. Read how she and WTF are helping loved ones come together during their darkest hour.

In American society, the term “addict” is often synonymous with something sinister. Rather than recognizing and empathizing with a person who has faults and feelings, society has turned to ostracizing instead of helping those who self-medicate through vices. This vicious cycle of stigma that criminalizes addicts instead of rehabilitating them, increases recidivism and the likelihood of relapse. And, instead of seeking help, the stigma instills a sense of shame in users; feelings of guilt and that they must face their demons alone, when it should not be this way.
