Jump Start into Positive Health – FREE!

Hi! I am Melanie Stewart, a Holistic Nutritionist and Health Coach specializing in human digestion and the importance of eating REAL foods the RIGHT WAY. I have an undergraduate degree in Exercise Science and a Master’s Degree in Holistic Nutrition. I am also an experienced educator, author, counselor/coach and public speaker and I invite you to join me for a FREE SEMINAR!

 March 3 @ 10:00

A Simple Faith Church

No matter what your wellness goal(s) – healthy eating, weight loss, improved cholesterol ratios and/or triglyceride levels, reduced markers for inflammation, stabilized blood sugar levels, reduction in the need for medications, even reversal of the disease process, or maybe you just want to feel GREAT, you are sure to gain something positive from our time together!

Jump Start to Positive Health and Healing through the Power of 3

Nutrition 101 – No matter what or how much you eat, if you are not absorbing the nutrients from the food – YOU ARE AT RISK!  Learn tips and techniques that will make you feel great while you maximize your health and minimize your waistline!

Understanding Digestion – No matter how serious the message, it goes down a bit easier when it’s fun!  We’ll take a ride through the digestive system that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!

Meal Planning – Many of us were taught to include every food group at every meal.  This a digestive nightmare!  It requires just a bit of rearranging to work with our perfectly designed system and, fortunately, it’s easy!

This presentation is a call to action! 
People don’t just listen, they get emotionally connected, excited and ready to change!

“Melanie Stewart is one of the most knowledgeable and entertaining speakers l have ever had the pleasure of hearing. She explains complex digestive workings in terms that both amuse you and make you think.” – Cyndi Talty

“Melanie’s simple techniques for healthy eating combined with explaining how our bodies function is inspiring and LIFE CHANGING, even for people who are well versed in healthy eating!” – Kim Ryals

“Melanie is an engaging speaker and is able to easily communicate complex nutritional information into practical and easy action steps that you can implement into your life immediately.” – Susan Shipley

“Mel really knows her stuff and does a superb job communicating and encouraging. I deeply enjoy the group dynamic of the workshop and recommend participation by both men and women.” – Rick Wimberly

Puerto Rico update! We are going back to the island around the first week in March. This is the church in Caguas that we are helping to rebuild. (and some photos of the surrounding area) They have over 500 members, almost all are still without power or have been displaced. Anyone that feels like they could help we would love to have you!

We’re just a small group of folks that want to help. We have a very simple website if you want to know more about the trip. renewflorida.org – The people we are helping never asked for it, we came to them. Beautiful people and a beautiful island (underneath the rubble).

You’ll find the sessions by scrolling down the page a bit past Ronnie’s weekly talks.   Last year’s study, Christian History 101, is available here.





Hello, all my fellow Simple Faith peeps!

I have mailed all the donation receipts that weren’t picked up in the foyer of the church.  And actually, we’ve gotten a few back already as undeliverable.  Please email me if you don’t receive your receipt soon, and I’ll email you a copy right away

I Stand at the Door and Knock: Meditations by the Author of The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom

Contains Forty New, Never-Before-Published Devotions!

At the height of Nazi power, amid the horrors of a concentration camp, the seeds of faith and forgiveness grew to fruition in the heart of a young Dutch woman named Corrie ten Boom. Outlasting Ravensbrück and Hitler’s regime, Corrie went on to accomplish what brute power never could: conquering hearts across the world with healing words of hope, forgiveness, and trust in God. This is Corrie ten Boom at her best and most inspiring. These forty timeless devotionals remind you of the treasures of faith in Christ, the mysteries of God’s kingdom, and joy of a surrender that leads you out of fear into the freedom of love and forgiveness. I Stand at the Door and Knock offers timeless messages of faith, hope, and forgiveness from a veteran saint.
