Christina M. Stimson, M.D., is an Inspirational and Motivational Public Speaker, Author, Screenwriter, Personal Transformational Life Coach as well as an Informational/Educational Consultant in both Internal Medicine and Naturopathic Medicine.
Christina’s passion is using both her strong Public Speaking gift as well as in Private Consultation with clients to live out the reality of Isaiah 61; to see any wounded, marginalized, disenfranchised, broken people traumatized in any area (personally, professionally, physically, emotionally, spiritually and/or financially) move from Brokenness to Restoration, recover ALL the enemy has stolen from their lives and see Your Setbacks Become Your Greatest Comebacks.
As a Public Speaker, Christina dynamically motivates and inspires audiences through her faith in Jesus Christ. She has a very powerful and compelling personal testimony of how the Lord brought her through a literal lifetime of Job-like Trials in many fiery furnaces. In having experienced such longstanding deep persecution for her faith, Christina memorized the Word of God in the process.
Her story is truly like that of Joseph of Genesis in the Bible, like that of Daniel in the lion’s den and certainly like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace itself all enveloped on the backdrop of the Trials of Job as well.
By pressing through with faith, coming to know both who you are in Christ and the delegated authority imparted to you by Christ, Christina seeks to impart hope to hurting people of how holding onto the Word of God when darkness prevails can be life-changing and transformative in every area of life to those who are yielded to Him. In summary, Christina uses her pain for YOUR gain because life happens to all of us.
Living from the Promises of God, not our circumstances empowers people to rise above the apparent ashes of defeat and reclaim EVERYTHING the enemy stole from them.
Using her own unique style of delivery as part actress, part message Christina demonstrates that if the Lord God allowed her to overcome ALL of THIS, what can He do in YOUR life?
Part of Christina’s own testimony is that her father, a wonderful man and child of the Great Depression, insisted she become a Medical Doctor; Christina’s desire was to become either a Public Speaker or Actress and now can do both!
Christina is Board-Certified in Internal Medicine and practiced in Chicago, Illinois and Phoenix, AZ for 10 years.
Christina had to retire from the practice of Internal Medicine due to severe lupus. When, however, Christina healed with her mother, the Lord took all of Christina’s lupus symptoms out of her body in a miracle that only the Lord can do. In Christina’s specific case the lupus was the physical correlate of all the extreme physical, emotional, spiritual abuse, violence and rejection she experienced at her mother’s hands for a very long period of time.
Christina led her mother to the Lord along with the prayers of many people. Her husband, Bob, faithfully drove Christina to Phoenix from Las Vegas for many years to enable Christina to see her Mom on weekends. Christina’s mother died in her arms.
Since giving her heart to Christ at the age of 22, Christina has witnessed the power of God to heal: how very quiet prayer allowed a paralyzed child in medical school to walk, how a young mother dying from myelofibrosis was healed with by verified bone biopsy from top-notch physicians at MD Anderson, how her own father who was clinically dead headed toward the mortuary was raised from the dead as Christina quietly prayed over him, how a man in NZ had his death assignment cancelled by the Lord touching his body and delivering him from MRSA (flesh eating bacteria disease) when Christina spoke the Word of God to his wife over a Skype call from America to New Zealand and finally how in 2018 after 8 long months of intense physical suffering, Christina was healed when the Holy Spirit imparted to Christina what was making her so physically sick. It was a true case of Physician, Heal Thyself. Now as a consequence of this, Christina can help others be set free in the same areas she experienced herself: diabetes, Candida, lupus, thyroid disease among many others!
Jesus Christ IS the healer and ALL glory, honor and power be to Him!
Since 1999, Christina has spoken and preached at churches, Aglow, Full Gospel Businessmen’s Groups, Women’s Groups, Church Retreats, Christian Radio, Trinity Broadcast Network and The 700 Club.
In addition to being a Public Speaker, Author and Screenwriter, Christina is honored to be a member of the International Organization, Christian Women In Media (CWIMA).
Christina has written two books and one screenplay: “Lessons From The Fiery Furnace,” and “Honey Bear: Angel of Estacada… The True Life Story of How God Used Honey Bear, A Heaven Sent Golden Retriever To Champion A Woman Overcoming Invincible Odds.” (Book and Screenplay)
Christina’s third book is in the works.
In addition, Christina was blessed to minister alongside her husband, Bob, in Alexandria, Egypt, just prior to the Revolution. Christina also went to Christchurch, NZ, at Bob’s insistence in 2012. This was an extremely very challenging experience for Christina, although on first blush appears like a “luxury problem.” In reality, Christina nearly died there.
And although Christina is Board-certified in Internal Medicine with a vast knowledge of Naturopathic Medicine only from the many physical health crises the Lord walked Christina through personally, it by this she is able to tangibly help people on an informational/educational level by both her knowledge base in these areas as well as by the discernment of the Holy Spirit.
Christina originally grew up in Chicago, Illinois. She obtained her Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree in Human Anatomy and Physiology from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana campus. She received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Illinois, both Chicago and Rockford, Illinois campuses with Board-Certification in 1983. She received her Internal Medicine Training from St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, affiliated with Northwestern University Medical Center.
Christina is married to her husband, Bob, a Senior Structural Engineer, of whom she is very proud. They live in Las Vegas, NV with their Golden Retriever, Jessie.
Although Christina and Bob have experienced very severe and intense trials in their relationship, as they both turn their lives over to Christ, He not only redeems the intense, longstanding pain and persecution Christina suffered but also both take great comfort seeking the One True God, Our Lord Jesus Christ, His Word and how He alone can restore and recover all.
Christina and Bob were blessed to have many Golden Retrievers in their lives as their animal children:
Jockey was Christina’s first Golden Retriever, a Precious and Beloved Retired Guide Dog of the Blind.
Chip, also a Golden Retriever, rescued from Roseburg, Oregon who later died tragically and suddenly in New Zealand.
Honey Bear, the love of Christina’s life, a Heaven sent Angel FOR SURE and Christina’s total emotional support died in Las Vegas, Nov. 2017 after an improperly diagnosed severe protracted chondrosarcoma cancer causing Honey Bear sudden paralysis.
Bear, a beloved Golden Retriever given to Christina the day Honey Bear was diagnosed with cancer, had to be returned to the Golden Retriever Rescue Society because after only 3.5 months of having Bear and especially totally unbeknownst to Christina, Bear was diagnosed with a very painful, large osteosarcoma. Because Christina had her own very severe physical health problems at the time and had to recover herself, and equally after much prayer, Bob and Christina returned this precious, beloved Golden Retriever back to the Golden Retriever Rescue Society of Nevada so Christina could regain her own physical health and strength. Christina was unable to deal with another dog’s cancer so unexpectedly, so soon, not to mention the amputation and ongoing care that she would have wanted to be able to provide Bear all the while experiencing her own health crises. Christina takes great comfort she will be reunited with All of her animal children in Heaven and gives total praise, honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ for the total recovery of her own health in November of 2018.
Christina and Bob have Jessie, another Golden Retriever, and a Very Special Angel from Heaven above who saw Christina through the worst health crises of her life, rescued in 2016 by Christina, and both Bob and Christina look forward to adopting a new Golden Retriever puppy in Christmas of 2018.
Christina has seen and witnessed the life-transforming power of the word of God in her life and in the lives of countless others she has had the privilege to pray both with and for. Christina takes great delight in attending her home church, The Crossing, in Las Vegas, and serving in the Prayer Room there.
This same power to overcome whatever life throws at you, and to see your life transformed from sorrow, sickness, severe trauma, wounding and pain of any kind, suffering and heartbreak to your greatest comeback is available to YOU!
In short, you, too can move from brokenness to restoration in any and every area of YOUR OWN LIFE.
Who am I?
