Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 10, 2005
Kevin Berg was doomed from the start to live a meaningless life. Or so his doctors said. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Kevin has overcome higher odds and more obstacles than most will face in a lifetime. His two bachelor degrees and new book ÂA Life with PurposeÂ are hardly the BergsÂ biggest blessings. Kevin and his wife, Melinda, have a one-year-old daughter, Gabriela, who is the joy of their lives.
Their love for the Lord has led the Bergs to encourage people to discover the true purpose of their lives through ÂLiving the PurposeÂ Speaking Ministries, so they may live in true joy and leave a mark on people, their community and the world. One of their next stops will be the Mid-Western Christian Bookfair at the Johnson County Fairgrounds on Friday, September 23, at 5:00 pm.
ÂKevin and MelindaÂs visit taught our students that nobody can tell you that you canÂt do something,Â said Jennifer Chomen, a teacher at Amherst Middle School in Buffalo, N.Y. ÂYou can achieve anything you desire by making the right choices.Â
KevinÂs best choice, besides accepting Jesus, was marrying Melinda - a former special education teacher he met at Seattle Pacific University. Melinda has endured many relationship trials to get to where she is now Â happy. The Bergs desire to encourage others through sharing their story with schools, camps, churches and any other organizations.
ÂI wouldnÂt go back and change the way I was born, even if I could,Â Kevin often says. ÂEveryone has a purpose in life, no matter what their circumstances. We wish to show others how to truly love life.Â
ÂLiving the PurposeÂ Speaking Ministries is solely supported by donations so they may speak around America to groups with limited or no budgets. Their September 23 event at the Johnson County Fairgrounds Concert Hall is free and open to the public.
The Bergs are always available for interviews at (206) 246-5693.
ÂI invited Kevin and Melinda to be guests on my radio show and have seen their public presentation as well,Â said Thor Tolo, host of ÂLive from SeattleÂ in the BergsÂ hometown. ÂThey are wonderful witnesses for the love of Jesus and consider KevinÂs cerebral palsy a blessing. ItÂs impossible to walk away not feeling overwhelmed.Â
Mission Statement: ÂLiving the PurposeÂ Speaking Ministries exists to encourage people to discover their purpose in life, so they may live in true joy and leave a mark on people, their communities and the world.
