Life is sometimes difficult. The weight of our jobs, relationships and community responsibilities coupled with concern for our families, our health, and our own economic viability can be overwhelming. It’s as if we’ve been placed in a vice, or we’re being beaten and hammered – forged.
But who is doing the forging? What are we becoming? And what purpose will we fulfill?
Sean Neal has overcome tremendous obstacles that have made him into the person he is today. He’ll help us understand how our hearts and minds – our very lives – can be forged to help us become the men God created us and calls us to be.
Speaker: Sean Neal
Sean Neal is a fighter. He doesn’t let anything stop him. He lives life with a ferocity unmatched by even the staunchest of athletes. He’s fiercely competitive and views this life as a competition, one in which he is determined to win, resolute to continue climbing, taking footholds and holding his ground in the battle to become the best version of himself.
This attitude didn’t just simply appear, however. It wasn’t bestowed upon him. Instead it had to be built. It had to be hardened and molded and his very nature cast into it. How? Through the trials and tribulations of this life. He knows what it feels like to just want to give up; like it’s not worth it. After being told he wouldn’t live past age ten by an ill-informed doctor he was later diagnosed with a neuromuscular disease known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy. He experienced great physical and emotional pain and had multiple surgeries by the age of twelve. Yet his story isn’t a dismal one. Instead it’s about love, hope, and victory.
Through an unshakable faith and belief in Jesus, he views himself as a kingdom warrior for Christ. Through his eyes, you would not see a disabled man, but rather one who rises to the occasion. His greatest pride is seeing the love of Jesus demonstrated in others and spending time with his family and those he loves.
He was born the son of a farmer and grew up with a passion for agriculture. Being physically unable to partake in many aspects of the farm he pursued finance and excelled academically. He graduated from Washington State University with a degree in finance after which he pursued a career as a financial advisor. Following his stint with Edward Jones Investments he found an opportunity to work for his alma mater, WSU, where he currently works as an analyst. His real passion, however, is the farm and sharing the love of Christ with audiences of varying kinds.

2018 Women’s Retreat
A Diet of Hope
Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him. Psalm 34:8 NLT Psalm 34:8 NLT. A Diet of Hope looks at how we spiritually nourish ourselves. In the hustle and bustle of daily life we can fall into the pattern of just making it through each day while we are spiritually starving ourselves.
Over the weekend we will take a look at what is on our plates and how can we find ways to stay spiritually nourished while still accomplishing our daily responsibilities.
