Hello! My name is Christine Brevik and I am currently serving as the Chief Operating Officer for YadaFactor. The story of how I got here is a tremendous story of God’s grace and persistence!
You see, God has been chasing me to slow down and shift my focus to ALL things in Him. My faith is important, I am active in my church, I am connected to an awesome small group, and I spend time in the word and my journal. I also had a successful career while attempting to create harmony in my life, but the cost was high! I just kept going and going and going (insert Energizer Bunny here… but not the cute, pink bunny, but the tired and barely moving bunny).
That is when it all came to a crashing halt. I was diagnosed with Covid in April 2020 and began a very difficult journey of healing and recovery where I found the simple act of breathing to be overwhelming and exhausting. I was scared – for myself and my family. I cried out to God, every-single-day!!!
I know my story is not all that unique with so many that have suffered so much from this evil and devastating disease. I pray with you all as we try to recover from all the personal ways this has impacted our lives.
What I want to share is how this period of my life has created a space of rest, reflection, and redirection. I have had a deep relationship with God for so long, but honestly, I let Him shift from my focus of being in the center of EVERYTHING… not just church, bible study and service projects – but really EVERYTHING! So, for me, my personal journey involved quitting my job (yes, that was really scary) and focusing on my healing – both with my health and my soul!
This is where God really showed up (again) and launched me on a journey that continues to bless me every day! I enrolled in Palm Beach Atlantic University where God orchestrated the next steps of this amazing journey and brought Debbie and I together. She introduced YadaFactor to me and I immediately went home to sign up for the next class. To say this was life changing is an understatement. Through Yada I have been able to dig deeper in the Bible and develop a much stronger relationship with God! My triad has become my lifeline through sharing and we are in awe of how God is present and working all the time.
This week my husband and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. The journey to blend our beautiful family has been full of so many wonderful blessings. But the reality is this journey has also been messy at times, but God is so faithful and always shows up! As we prepare to celebrate with some well needed rest this week it is also a time to reflect on how much we have grown as a couple, as parents, and in our walk with God. Yada has allowed me the process to be reminded of this journey and God’s faithfulness.
Yada has been so transformational in my life, and it is an honor and privilege to be a part of the leadership team that is working faithfully to grow the YadaFactor ministry according to God’s plan. For those of you that have experienced the transformation of Yada I would love to hear your testimony. For those that are still considering our YadaFactor Experience course please know we are here to answer any of your questions.
Christine is married to Lonnie, and they have a beautifully blended family of 7 children ranging in age from 15 to 33 and 4 grandchildren, ages 3 to 8. Family time is precious to Christine and always an adventure!
