About Ginger O'Shea
Since the early 1990s, Ginger has been researching the various food and other man-made products that impact our mental and physical health. Along that journey she has made changes in her own lifestyle and sought to learn more natural ways of health and healing. This has included studies in Dr. J. R. Christopher’s School of Natural Healing, BotanoLogos School for Herbal Studies, and Clayton College of Natural Health, plus continuous research in this important topic. All of this has confirmed the truths found in the Scriptures, that our amazingly created bodies were designed by God to function with health and joy by the two basic types of food he has given us, nourishing provisions from his creations and the life-giving food of his Word.
The writing of Lifestyle Choices ... Up to YOU! was birthed from a saddened heart that Christians are becoming painfully ill and even dying because of their lack of knowledge concerning our foods, the environment, and the application of many overlooked spiritual truths.
Her intent is to bring the teachings of Scripture to bear on the concerns of today; her passion is to assist Christians in caring for their bodies as temples of the Holy Spirit. Ginger’s education includes an MA in Pastoral Counseling, an MSW in Clinical Social Work, and an NH in Nutritional Herbalism. Her professional experiences, including establishing and directing a homecare service in Atlanta for the elderly, have confirmed her belief that we are not sufficient of ourselves to deal with the exigencies of life but need both the physical and spiritual provisions of God for our health and wellbeing. Ginger is currently retired and living in the mountains of northeast Georgia.
