Like many of you out there, Sersie Blue is an overcomer of a profound personal tragedy. During her second pregnancy, she experienced health issues. It was in this difficult season of her life she realized a deeper need for the Lord and decided to lean into Him more and participate in a one-month Daniel Fast. Little did she know that this simple decision would transform her life. But God knew! It turns out that combining intentional prayer with a whole-food, plant-based diet was a divine bridge to a breakthrough. From this, “The Faithful Vegan” was born.
Sersie also hosts the Healthy for My Purpose podcast. Seeking after God from an early age, she graduated from the University of Windsor with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications. She went on to Tyndale College & Seminary, graduating with a Master’s of Divinity in Counseling. Sersie has also completed the health coach program from Wellcoaches at the University of North Florida. She continually seeks knowledge and wisdom that supports her personal growth and that of others. In addition, she is co-author of A Prayer for Your Health Journal. As you can see, her passionate pursuit of God, wellness & coaching comes together in co-founding Daniel Fast: A Bridge to Healthy Living.
