Meet Ellen Founder/Host
Ellen G. White, co-founder of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, wrote The Ministry of Healing over 100 years ago, and its pages continue to illuminate the path to health and healing today. This daily podcast (Monday-Friday) features every word of the book with commentary from a variety of experts on and enthusiasts of topics including spirituality, natural remedies, vegan diets, pharmaceutical drugs, addiction, ministry, family, natural resources, food supply/distribution and how they impact our lives.
In the "Blue Zones" study conducted in 2004 to identify a demographic and/or geographic area of the globe where people live measurably longer lives, the Seventh-day Adventists of Loma Linda, CA were one of the five acknowledged “Blue Zones."
The way of life observed by these Adventists stems from biblical principles and the 8 Laws of Health presented by Ellen G. White in The Ministry of Healing. In 2014, Smithsonian magazine named her one of "the 100 Most Significant Americans of All Time." Much of the wisdom of the natural health movement today has its roots in the divinely-inspired writings of this eloquent and poetic woman with a third-grade education.
With so much information about health, nutrition and exercise at our fingertips today, why are so many Americans suffering from lifestyle illnesses? Because change is simple, but it is NOT easy. We often go around and around the wilderness like the Israelites, never quite getting the victory we are promised.
So as we venture through the treasure trove of wisdom in the pages of The Ministry of Healing and pick the brains of a host of esteemed guests, we will also provide evidence-based, actionable strategies to build new and edifying habits that lead to the transformation we all seek in different areas of our lives. Ellen G. White recognized that health goes beyond the body, mind and spirit; she offers guidance on dress, the home, rearing children and thriving in the workplace.
I was given a copy of The Ministry of Healing at a health expo hosted by the Apollo Theater in Harlem on September 19, 2015, and the trajectory of my life has been forever changed. Now it's time for YOU to meet Ellen and be transformed by the 8 Laws of Health outlined in The Ministry of Healing and presented in the "Meet Ellen: Get the Key to Health & Happiness" podcast.
I am Marci Kenon, IFPA-certified personal fitness trainer and lifestyle coach. In a previous life, I was a music journalist who contributed to Billboard magazine and interviewed giants including Diana Ross, Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin, Russell Simmons, Jay-Z and Daymond John. Those moments pale when compared to the privilege to introduce author Ellen G. White and her timeless health message delivered in The Ministry of Healing book, the focus of the Meet Ellen podcast.
