Christian Record Offers CREATION Life Resources to Members
Christian Record Services for the Blind has partnered with AdventHealth to offer CREATION Life resources to their members, including a video series and educational materials about whole health principles for the body, mind, and spirit.
“We are delighted to offer this series and other CREATION Life resources to our members,” said Diane Thurber, president of Christian Record. “The material is presented in a way that makes it easy for groups to enjoy the experience together, which science has shown is one of the best ways to improve quality of life!”
The CREATION Lifeprogram by AdventHealth, formerly known as CREATION Health, has been used in churches, schools and communities for more than a decade. It is now available in 11 languages and in more than 89 countries.
The CREATION Life acronym stands for Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust in God, Interpersonal Relationships, Outlook and Nutrition. “The eight healthy lifestyle principles of CREATION Life go beyond diet and excerise to provide an evidence-based pathway to help people feel whole,” said Ted Hamilton, senior vice president and chief mission integration officer for AdventHealth, one of the nation’s largest faith-based health care systems. “Living a longer and healthier life becomes much easier when there are principles to guide the way and a community of like-minded people to support you in your health journey.”
CREATION Life is now available to Christian Record’s members through the library, found online at Lib.Guide. “We’ve also created a new place for an online community to meet once a week,” said Kalvin Follett, member services and studio director.
This new closed Facebook group is moderated by staff who post content from the CREATION Life series once a week. Members can try out the ideas and talk about them in a safe community. Follett said, “We’ll explore the series together, as friends looking for healthier ways of living.”
