WHAT IS JODI’S STATEMENT OF FAITH?
Jodi is a follower of Jesus Christ and full agreement with the Nicene and Apostles Creed. She chooses not to get into Denominational tug of wars and prefers the simplicity of the Gospel.

Jodi believes that Jesus is the answer to all our soul aches for. She also believes that God created us be whole mind, body and spirit and there is much we can learn from one another in our spheres of influence through medicine, technology, science, and faith discoveries. Appreciates the journey of growing and unpacking the message of restoration at all levels as she knows she isn’t fully restored until heaven and wants to be a lifelong learner.

Although she values the local church and encourages others to connect with one in their community to serve and grow with, she will not endorse any one denomination or church in her writings and speaker endeavours.
