Erin Kvistad

Erin Kvistad

J.D., Certified Wellness and Fitness Coach

I wear a lot of hats: wife, mother, friend, athlete, lawyer, coach. I’m passionate about my faith and about striving to successfully achieve all that God has in store for my life. To be the best at each of the roles I play, I have to be at my best, first. Kind of like the instructions on an airline, "first secure your own oxygen, then you can help others around you." For me that means being well-nourished, physically and spiritually. It means getting and keeping my head in the right place. And to get my mind right, I need to keep my body right. Fitness gives me both mental and physical strength and clarity.

Our lives and our journeys aren’t always linear. Sometimes we think we are heading to a particular destination only to come to a fork in the road and head off in a different direction. Such has been my life. After law school I practiced law for seven years. The next seven years I spent in the home raising three young boys. For the following six years I worked part time as a Risk Manager for a construction company. I’m now back home full time running my own business as a fitness and health coach and I am finally pursuing my dream of writing. I don’t regret any of the roles I’ve had or the time spent to achieve them. I know that each of them have shaped the woman I am today.

Setting and reaching goals in fitness, like running a marathon or completing a fitness program, sharpens my focus and shapes my character. The achievements bolster confidence. The failures teach humility. Both instruct in patience, perseverance and dedication.
As important as it is to exercise daily and to make good choices when it comes to nutrition, it is also important for me to stay healthy spiritually. I do this by spending time in the word, attending church services and surrounding myself with other believers who support and encourage me in my faith walk. I do not pretend to be perfect. I am a work in progress. Every day I practice certain disciplines to maintain my health. The greatest gift each of us can give to ourselves, for our own benefit and those around us, is a healthy self – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Val Sommerville

Val Sommerville

Marketing/Speaking Managment

Val and her husband of 27 years, fully embrace and appreciate the challenges of raising children as they have eight children ages 6 to 24. Traveling that road has given her insight to the unique issues that every stage of development entails.
Val has a passion for sharing the truth through visual messaging. She believes that we live in a digital age where visual stimulation assaults the mind every waking moment and feels that creating content that encourages conversation among parents and teens is an important tool to help this generation. Recently Val was asked why digital graphics were her passion. Her response was that she "heard a speech given by a Conservative Politician that explained the best way to win is to be the best storyteller."
For this generation we must find a way to tell the story with visual digital communication. Val aims to be the best visual storyteller for this generation.
