Keynote #1 Don’t Even Think About Quitting: Every day people give up trying to get to get healthy. Most think it is just too much work. Or they believe it just doesn’t matter. It does matter. Living healthy for a lifetime begins with a change of mind, not just a change in what we do. Vicki will help us understand why we may have failed in the past and share how to develop lasting motivation for a lifetime of fitness.

Keynote #2 Living a Balanced Life: Is it even possible? Life is good but life is challenging and ever changing. How do we evenly distribute all the things we have to account for? Jesus gave the answer and Vicki will share what it takes to remain upright and steady in a chaotic world.
