Heather Wagoner is a self-proclaimed keto expert with predominant skills in over-thinking, loving her husband and kids, and mastering the stereotype of being a 1w2. Her mediocre skills as a professional life-juggler may find you waiting an extra day for a promised post, but when it hits your inbox, you’ll be instantly inspired by it’s unique perspective on helping you to find wHOLe. Her knowledge and experience is found in the pubmed degree she earned from the School of Life and Loss as she helped care for her father during a 7 year cancer battle- an experience that would shape and change her perspective on a wHOLe mind/body/spirit approach to healthcare. As a self-motivated action-taker, her pursuit of natural health solutions led her to begin a thriving wellness business in 2013 known as The Oil Change that she still leads today. In 2015 she and her husband Reagan moved from Nashville, TN with their 4 kids to just north of Cincinnati, Ohio and planted Grace Point Fellowship where they currently lead and serve.
A note from Heather
So here’s the thing… there’s just no way around a blog not having a proper bio, but there’s mine anyway. And before you go and let me fool you into thinking I’ve got my act together… well I’ll just let you come to your own conclusions.
So if you’ll come by for a cup of coffee with me every week (and by that I mean, pour a cup as you sit down to read) I will only ask one favor… Read between the lines and assume you’re more of an expert than I am. Since this blog is called The wHOLe Conversation, the goal is that an actual exchange will occur, and that your full potential for living wHOLe will be realized through those exchanges.
After all– what if a blog could be about more than just hearing the author’s perspective? Isn’t that how a real conversation works anyway?
Being wHOLe as a way of life…
Ever heard of “Kintsukuroi”? I hadn’t known the term either until recently, but upon reading of it, I remembered having seen it before and being so moved by the concept. Kintsukuroi is is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer mixed with powdered gold. Once a piece of pottery goes through this process, it’s not only usable again, but even more treasured and often more beautiful than before.
Living wHOLe is like that. I’ve never known a single person to understand it that hadn’t had their life shattered in some way or another but still lived to tell about it. So if there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that to feel whole is not simply to be without missing pieces. Living wHOLe is living by design. It is an intentional, HOListic approach to navigating life that supports the mind, body, & spirit together. I began to understand wHOLe when I realized how seamlessly all of those areas were designed to work together. That they influence each other. When I decided that I would start paying closer attention to this, it became easier to see how they all worked together to determine my thoughts, feelings, actions, and my ability to understand and live out my purpose.
What have you learned about living wHOLe? What do you hope to learn? I believe that we have so much to learn from each other in this place. And I am so glad that you’re here.
