Carolyn Fears-Williams--Chief Executive Officer

The founder/CEO of Devoted 2 Healing organization. Blessed to be a member of the Baha'i faith, Carolyn is interacting with all interfaith groups, and organizations. Grateful to God for healing me of a rare cancer called “Carcinoid of the Thymus,and a rare heist-cystitis of the lung. Devoted 2 Healing was born through my personal journey in facing the challenge of cancer survival. Interestingly enough, the organization started in my home where the first meetings with healthy meals. 

Yet, with such a humble beginning, Devoted 2 Healing has made a positive impact in the Northwest Indiana region. It serves as a beacon of light, inspiring change through ongoing services and education. 

The programs include guest speakers on various health related topics on mind, body and spirit, along with vegan meals. I believe that prayer, a supportive family, a good attitude, good doctors, western & eastern, diet, and having those prayers answered by God are the keys to getting through ones journey with any serious illness. God has blessed me to pay it forward by educating (18 and over), especially disabled adults, veterans, seniors, those with life-threatening illness or recovering from life-threatening illness, by being a resources, and bring local and national professional speaker to Northwest Indiana.

I was an overweight child with a diet heavy in meat, dairy and sugar.  As my weight and health concerns begin to grow and doctors would have had no recourse for me except eventually placing me on medication. I began expanding my mind with books,cassette tapes, VHS tapes, and DVD's on fitness and nutrition.  I am a single mother of an adult son whom I've raised with the knowledge of exercise and being conscious of what is placed in one's temple.  Throughout the years I've had circles of friends interested in living a healthier lifestyle.I've attended classes and workshops around Chicago and health institute located in Michigan and Texas learning how to take care of myself and my family. My attendance in these classes has granted me several certificates as well as a chef raw 1 certification.   In my Continual growth I've become aware of the importance of true spiritual health.  Giving me the understanding of having a total healing consisting of The Spirit, Mind, and Body.  Having a career in Law enforcement since 1990, I've seen the effects of how a poor diet in Spirit, Mind, and Body can greatly affect our thinking.  A nutrient depleted diet in these areas may cause a failure to choose positive actions and responses.  Being a part of Devoted to Healing Is enhanced my life and gives me the opportunity to share my joy and wisdom.
