Sustainable Health & Nutrition with Molly Pflederer and Ryan Parnham
1 Corinthians 10:31 (ESV) “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
Molly Pflederer is a 38 year old mother of 3 and has been married for 16 years.
As a trained holistic health coach and graduate from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, Molly is passionate about helping others feel their best and find purpose. She has always been passionate about health and fitness, but grew increasingly more intentional when she found her health in a bad state. She was experiencing daily headaches, body/joint pain, extreme fatigue, brain fog, and digestive issues. With 3 kids under the age of 4 at home, she was miserable but couldn’t simply lay in bed. Then, the depression started to set in. After years of useless doctor visits and unexplained symptoms, she searched to find a different way.
Hope was finally found through a more holistic approach to health, where simple daily changes made a huge impact. She experienced first hand how food can be medicine, and that it truly affects the way you feel on a daily basis; both mentally and physically.
Molly firmly believes life shouldn’t be about restriction, rather balance; learning how to enjoy the things you love in moderation and having a healthy relationship with food! Not using food as a crutch, rather as fuel to nourish our bodies in the best way possible.
Following the 80/20 principle can bring so much freedom to enjoy dinner out with friends, birthday parties, holidays and those fun ice cream runs with family and friends! Knowing you don’t have to be a slave to your decisions, yet make conscious choices that will benefit your long term health.
Ryan Parnham is a 40-year-old husband and father from the Midwest. He works as a nurse practitioner and has been practicing for over 12 years. He is a certified Primal Health Coach and has also completed additional training with the Institute for Functional Medicine.
His passion is living with meaning and purpose while achieving and maintaining good health for life. Ryan has been a health and wellness expert for many years and believes the path to good health does not need to be complicated and should be approached with both balance and common sense.
Ryan found himself overweight and out of shape in his early 20’s and, since then, has dedicated his life to reversing this pattern by achieving and maintaining great health. He is not a fan of fad diets, exercises or supplements and develops his approach based off of what he calls “the four key elements” to health: nutrition, sleep, movement and stress. He loves helping and coaching others on their journey to better health and vitality.

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”
Ephesians 2:8–10 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God‘s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.“
