Gina V Physical Therapy Leads With Faith

Gina V Physical Therapy in Papillion

4-3-2017_2_LargeGina Vanderheiden is all smiles in her Papillion physical therapy clinic. 

It’s no coincidence Gina V Physical Therapy found its way to the Golden Rule Plaza in the historic downtown Papillion business district at 114 East 1st Street and has experienced a highly successful start in its first 15 months.

 Our goal is to bless others as we have been blessed, everything that happens at Gina V Physical Therapy is a true testament to our faith in God. ~ Gina V

“Our goal is to bless others as we have been blessed, and everything that happens at Gina V Physical Therapy is a true testament to our faith in God,” said Gina Vanderheiden, DPT, ATC, whose practice moved into the renovated century-old former Golden Rule grocery store building near the corner of 1st and Jefferson Streets, a block east of North Washington Street.

Establishing Gina V Physical Therapy was a leap of faith, Gina conceded, when she and her husband, CEO Mark Vanderheiden, opened the practice in January 2016. “Never more in our lives were we ever trusting that God would guide us down this journey of business ownership,” Gina said. “It took a lot of prayers and a strong faith to muster the courage that we could make this work. By God’s grace, the timing was right. We wake up every day simply astounded by the number of God’s blessings we have received since the day we opened our doors.”
Gina holds a physical therapy degree from the Creighton University School of Medicine. She also is Athletic Trainer Certified. While connecting with patients of all ages, she is a relationship-builder who considers her clients to be like family. Pointing out that she loves challenges, Gina explained: “We don’t want someone living with physical problems, grinding it out and giving up their hobbies because of a sore back, leg, arm, neck or other affliction they may be suffering.”

Gina started Gina V Physical Therapy to create an atmosphere where patients enjoy coming to therapy and feel comfortable to do so. In addition to handling all medical ailments, including sports injuries and orthopedic care, Gina is also one of the few metro-area physical therapists who is certified to perform Functional Dry Needling®. Functional Dry Needling is an innovative new treatment that focuses on certain trigger points in the body that will help relieve acute and chronic pain and help accelerate an individual’s rehabilitation.

While excelling in Functional Dry Needling, orthopedic disorders, and athletic injuries, Gina V Physical Therapy’s services include joint rehabilitation, manual therapy, traumatic conditions, work injuries, aquatic therapy, balance programs, postural deviations, fitness programs and work conditioning.

Gina wanted to locate her clinic in Papillion so she could work in the same community in which she lives. “My husband Mark and I are small-town folks at heart and community-driven. We support local businesses, including the local eateries within walking distance. We also support the schools in the Papillion-La Vista school district and cheer on the Monarchs and Titans, no matter what sport or activity,” said Gina, whose clinic also supports the Chariots4Hope charity and the Papillion Race Series.

“It hurts us to see our patients hurting,” Gina said. “We promise to use our God-given skills and expertise to their fullest with each patient. It’s truly a blessing to see people leave with a smile and with the confidence that recovery is within sight or complete.” ~ Gina V.

Gina V Physical Therapy is located at 114 East 1st Street in Papillion, at Suite 105 in the Golden Rule Plaza.

K-Life-Omaha Teen Ministry Faces Closure

K-Life projects $78,000 deficit and needs your help!

"K-Life Youth Ministry in Omaha Needs Funding"

Omaha K-Life, a local #Christian youth ministry, needs $78,000 in funding or will be unable to continue. 316Marketplace.Com recently connected with Clay Ford, area director, to learn more about this important organization. Ford gave great insight into the ministry and it’s easy to see how important the ministry is to Omaha teenagers. We felt it was important to help tell their story to #Christians throughout the community. 

Omaha K-Life, has organized volunteers and leaders who are devoted to impacting young men and women for the greater good through their faith. 

“Using the Bible as a guidepost, Omaha K-Life strives to follow the example of relationship building Jesus demonstrated while He was on earth.” ~ Clay Ford 

The apostle Paul explains discipleship like this: We loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.” (1 Thessalonians 2:8) 

Ford reminds us that, Discipleship starts with one willing person walking with God who is being transformed by that relationship—that reaches out to another person and walks with God next to them.  We talk a lot about “doing life together” with Omaha K-Life—and essentially that means being a part of kids’ lives where they are right now and showing them what a life changed by Jesus looks like.

Many of us can look over the landscape of our own lives and identify someone who made an impact on who we are today simply by taking an interest in our “real life”—showing up at a volleyball game, inviting us to some ridiculous event (food fight, anyone?), or genuinely listening to the answer that tumbles out when asked, “So, how are you really doing?”  We all crave to be known and to be valued. The teenagers in K-Life are no different. 

For Omaha K-Life, it’s pretty simple:  big events, small groups, and individual interactions.  The current staff at Omaha K-Life, Clay and Becca Ford, are a husband and wife team that are passionate about the Lord and the transformation of a life surrendered to Him.  They’re also pretty passionate about fun, laughter, the Bible, and creating one-of-a-kind memories.

Together, they cast a vision for the ministry emphasizing involvement in a small group lead by staff or volunteer leaders (usually young professionals or college students who are walking with the Lord and have a desire to impact the next generation).  Currently there are 12 active, healthy middle school and high school small groups that are designed to foster spiritual growth within a community of like-minded believers.  Through small groups, students are presented with the Word in an age appropriate way and taught how to study it for themselves—which allows them to wrestle with God’s truth found in Scripture and then engage it in their daily lives—and it’s happening! 

We’ve got kids who are hungry for truth! ~ Beca Ford

 

What a blessing to see kids, groups of friends, and entire families impacted for the Kingdom!

With this relatively simple formula, spending time with students in Bible-infused small groups and seeking ways to be involved in their daily lives, they partner with local schools and churches to invest in today’s kids.  Omaha K-Life has had the opportunity over the last 6 plus years to intentionally influence over 200 young men and women—and remain excited about what the Lord has in store ahead despite the financial challenges!

Omaha K-Life is completely locally supported! 

K-Life is constantly on the lookout for men and women who want to invest in the Lord’s work here in Omaha.  Our board of directors is comprised of couples and individuals who see what God is doing and are eager to offer their wisdom, talents, and time to serve.  Additionally, if you or your business or church would be interested in partnering financially with Omaha K-Life you can find more information at omaha.klife.com/donate.php

Since Omaha K-Life exists entirely on local donations, they are asking everyone to prayerfully consider becoming a financial partner! Your donations will support this beautiful ministry and their ability to take on the challenges of ministering to teens. 100% of your donation will be used right here in Omaha. Do you have contacts that could be approached for financial support? The enemy would like nothing more than for K-Life to fail, don’t let that happen.

Please support Omaha K-Life  

“Without financial support from those participating in Omaha K-Life, the ministry will not be able to continue.” 

Omaha K-Life is unique, and if you’re interested in more information—or getting involved perhaps?—they would love to answer any questions you might have. Please feel free to contact the chapter director, Clay Ford, at ford@klife.com.

Questions about donations may be directed to K-Life’s Treasurer, Brooke Blanke at  Brooke.Blanke@dialsmi.com

The Entrepreneur Map Is A Great Opportunity For Business Owners Everywhere

We recently discovered a new tool for entrepreneurs. We reached out to Justin Grounds, founder of The Entrepreneur Map (EM), and learned how this easy to use tool can help #Christian entrepreneurs everywhere! What is The Entrepreneur Map? It is a Google Maps / geo location based website application that provides free advertising and promotional tools for individuals, small businesses and entrepreneurs everywhere. The Entrepreneur Map is not listed as a Christian based business but we thought the promotional value of this free tool was too great not to report on.

Grounds explained, their current marketing process is this, when someone registers on the EM, they actively promote the EM in their specific geo location using social media marketing. This attracts other entrepreneurs, individuals and business owners residing in their location to visit the EM and view the new member’s information, promotional video and or banner, as well as other members in the web visitor’s location, and also to possibly register themselves. This increases the value for the members by attracting potential clients and contacts for the new member’s products and services.

 If you have an intro, demo, or promotional video – it will be featured and all visitors within a 30 MILE RADIUS of your location will view it – and it’s FREE! ~ Justin Grounds

We thought the Entrepreneur Map was a great opportunity for #Christian entrepreneurs to connect with like-minded customers across the globe. 316Marketplace.Com has witnessed the team at EM promoting businesses on all the major social media. This constant promotion provides much needed juice to fuel to direct traffic to these courageous entrepreneurs.

Going forward, in order to gain real internet traction and get the Entrepreneur Map name and services out there to be found by the millions of bootstrapping individuals and small businesses that would benefit from the free services that the EM offers, they will no doubt need to generate a paid advertising and admin budget.

Justin and his team wish to keep the EM services free for all who see the value of jumping on and becoming members. After all, it is mainly targeted at those who are endeavoring to build a business for themselves and their families in difficult economic times.

Do you have a partnership idea or a sponsorship offer for Entrepreneurial Map? Grounds remains open to ideas and opportunities and is focused on growing the scope and reach of the Entrepreneur Map.

We encourage #Christian business owners to prayerfully consider tools like the Entrepreneur Map or a local #ChristianBusinessDirectory like www.316Marketplace.Com. We pray that God may continue to richly bless Justin’s entrepreneurial endeavor and look forward to updates in the near future.

Rejuvenating Women Focuses on Faith & Forgiveness

Forgiveness Is Key to Christian Non-Profit

Rejuvenating women is a Nebraska non profit organization for women who are hurting from one or multiple things that have occurred in their past. This Christian organization focuses on forgiveness and offers Bible studies, open forum discussions, one-on-one mentoring and counseling to women in the Omaha community.

“To endure suffering, one needs to focus on forgiveness.”

Julie Shrader, President of Rejuvenating Women

Julie Shrader, President of Rejuvenating Women, travels throughout the Omaha Metropolitan area tells her personal story. Julie is a regular on the local speaking circuit and speaks about many topics including:

  • Releasing and freedom of shame and guilt in our past (how to heal)
  • Share my Testimony – (before I trusted Christ, how I surrendered to him, and the – difference since I’ve been walking with him.)–Revelation 12:11 says we overcome our enemy be the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony.
  • Human Trafficking which includes; Prostitution, Escort Services and Stripping
  • Our team counsels victims of Rape, Molestation, Incest and Sex Addictions
  • Abortion, Teen Pregnancy, and the Love of Adoption
  • Physical and Mental Abuse and how it destroys and molds you
  • Drug and Alcohol Addictions
  • How to Forgive Yourself and Others (The Love and Forgiveness of Jesus)
  • Sexual Purity and what is biblical (Great for Teens)
  • Marital Issues (Infidelity) and Relationship Issues
  • Self Worth (Feeling Worthy of God’s love), Self-Esteem and Depression
  • How to deal and live with “Dysfunctional Home” (Fatherless?)

Shrader explains that around the world and in our own community, women and girls often suffer from violence, shame, sexual exploitation, feelings of unworthiness, anger and resentment.  This occurs even toward others who are often members of their own family.

Rejuvenating women is a community of people dedicated to breaking down barriers of shame and guilt. They accomplish this by raising awareness of the power and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.  Through His love and grace, they too can overcome their past and inspire others.  Rejuvenating Women is founded on God and puts Jesus in the center of all that they do.  They focus on the power of Christ’s forgiveness that He gives to us and we are to extend that same forgiveness to others. The Bible is clear on the issue of forgiveness and how crucial it is for us to forgive those whom have hurt us and caused deep wounds in our hearts.  Shrader explains we may get angry and feel like getting revenge, but God says to NOT sin in your anger and HE will get revenge, it is not up to us to do. Shrader believes women need to step out in faith and let God fight for us.

“And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” – Mark 11:25

The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit comes into our heart and begins to change us and that our sins will be washed away clean and white as snow.

“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.” – Ephesians 1:13

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. – Isaiah 1:18

Rejuvenating Women also works to increase community awareness and coordinate the identification of human trafficking, assist in community education, advocacy, provision of culturally and linguistically sensitive victim services, and efforts to ensure the investigation and prosecution of human traffickers. Rejuvenating women provides a Bible-based context, in which women trapped in modern day slavery and/or survivors of human trafficking are given HOPE, safety, anonymity, security and freedom.  Shrader has worked diligently to partner with government agencies and community organizations; including the FBI, International Justice Mission (IJM) and the Lydia House, in order to better support and help prostituted women and girls escaping violence.

It is Julie’s hope that women will be able to face their past hurts and mistakes and learn how to forgive.  She believes when we can come to a place of confession and forgiveness, the healing process begins.  Forgiveness is a gift if you are willing to confess it and receive it.  It is there that you may start living a life of emotional freedom and a life that God intends for you to live.

“Forgiven people must be forgiving people.”

Are You Daring Enough To Change The Game?

When was the last time you were daring? When was the last time you did the unthinkable, unimaginable and most unreal thing of your career? Music icon Beyonce’ reminds each of us to go for it! She did the unthinkable last month when she released her fifth studio album without any notice. That’s right. She broke all of the rules and stunned the entire music world when she released her most ambitious project to date. What Beyonce’ did was unthinkable in the music industry. She changed the game completely!

So, when was the last time you made a daring move to change the game?
 

Every industry has a proven track record knowing how to market the next great widget. They’ve done it for years and each industry has their proven formula for how to attack with marketing and promotion.

 Sure, there are the legendary entrepreneurs who have created their own unique product launches or signature release – Steve Jobs with Apple, Tony Hsieh with Zappos.com and Richard Branson with Virgin Atlantic quickly come to mind. Branson was daring enough to start a record company when CDS were making their debut! He later started an airline company when airlines were belt tightening! Hsieh, believes anything is possible if you have a team moving in the same direction. Tony once shared his favorite quote with me.

“If you want to go fast, go it alone. If you want to go far, go it together.”

 

With an attitude like that it’s easy to see why Zappos.com has been so successful! For these iconic leaders, the rules — and techniques — are a little different. But none of them tried what Beyonce’ pulled off last month.

 Beyonce not only released her album on iTunes first but she did it with no warning & no other promotion – she showed how a daring move can break the proverbial industry glass ceiling. Companies around the world took note!

With a singular move Beyonce joined Jobs, Hsieh, Branson and others!

 

 Don’t be lulled into believing this was a spur of the moment decision. It was not. It was a calculated move by a very smart business person. It was a unique way to connect with her customer base. She truly put her fans first by announcing her album release on   Instagram to over 1,000,000 followers. They have responded and rewarded her with record breaking sales on iTunes.

Few in the industry could have pulled this off.

Beyonce’, in one daring move, hit the reset button in the music industry. Music moguls, promoters and retailers are scrambling! The game can change! And you can changed it if you’re daring enough to change the rules!

Lifeboat Coffee in Omaha, Nebraska recently changed the rules by launching America’s first pro-life coffee company. John Lillis, President of Lifeboat, was daring enough to leave corporate America and launch a company that embraced both his gifts and his faith.

Like Lillis, God has blessed each of us with many gifts and charisms. We should embrace our uniqueness and not be afraid to try new things in an effort to reach greater heights, to change the game and to glorify God.

The question remains, are you daring enough to change the game?

The purpose for wealth creation must go beyond providing food, shelter and basic needs for the family.

Omaha, Nebraska is home to www.tablegracecafe.com. This grace filled café’ provides an amazing meal to anyone that walks thru their door. The food is prepared and served in a graceful manner. This is a beautiful ministry that could be replicated in every city across the country. Christian business owners, like Table of Grace Café, can use their business experiences to help create solutions for those in our community.

Christian business owners thriving in the marketplace have the opportunity to show how their belief in Jesus Christ has manifested itself in their lives. God has given you the gifts to create wealth and a stage pronounce the good news! 316marketplace.com is interested in learning how you’ve used your gifts from God to impact those in your community. Leave a comment and we will quickly respond to you.

The 316 Team

Christian Business Owners

The Key Ingredient to Christian Businesses is Trustworthiness!

The Key Ingredient to Christian Businesses is Trustworthiness!

A recent Barna survey revealed 43% of American adults would be open to purchasing a product or paying for a service if they knew the business was rooted in Christian principles. Not surprisingly, the same study found that one third of all Americans would prefer to do business that is Christian owned or operated! Christian companies like, www.forever21.com, have gained the trust of the Christian consumer and have prospered as Christians are seeking businesses daring enough to call themselves Christians!

The http://316marketplace.com team, in the weeks and months ahead, will be shaking the bushes in search of Omaha Christian businesses willing to stand up for Christian principles in the marketplace. Recently, the http://316marketplace.com team in Omaha sat down and interviewed a Christian medical practice. We weren’t shocked to learn they even have non-Christian patients. The healthcare practitioners at http://sanctafamiliaomaha.org explained these non-Christian patients choose Sancta Familia because they know Christian businesses can be trusted!

Trustworthiness is the lifeblood of the Christian business. Like Forever21, it’s important to connect with Christian consumers and tell your story. The 316Marketplace team wants to help! We are here to provide a Christian business directory and a marketplace of help, support, and referrals to help build your business. Our talented team will leverage their gifts from God to promote and drive traffic to your business!
