Keynote Speaker

Alema Harrington
The Hope-idemic: Finding Hope After Rock Bottom

Alema Harrington shares his personal experiences and how he found recovery from a debilitating disease of mind, body and spirit.

Alema Harrington is a person in long-term recovery. Harrington’s story is unique and universal at the same time. His journey on the road to recovery includes rehab stints and a visit to a place known as “rock bottom.” Harrington considers himself to be a modern-day miracle. “God has done for me, what I could not do for myself.”

Harrington has been in the broadcast industry for over two decades. He gives back as a Licensed Substance Use Disorder Counselor at Renaissance Ranch Treatment Centers. His gratitude for his own recovery fuels his passion for sharing the message of HOPE with others.

Keynote Speaker

Heidi Swapp
Life After Teen Suicide: A Mother’s Story of a Community Epidemic

Heidi Swapp is best known for her trendy and fun products available in craft stores everywhere! Her unlikely career started in 2000, when she started teaching scrapbooking classes, and authoring magazine articles and books. From there, she began designing her own signature brand of creative products, which took her around the world sharing her ideas and inspiring people to tell their story in creative ways! As the years passed, and the ways we communicate online evolved, she learned how to connect with her fans through her blog, video and social media, sharing her story through photos! Stories about her family, their adventures, achievements, activities and milestones filled albums and blog posts. Because of the intimate and personal nature of scrapbooking, fans got an up-close look into the Swapp’s life, and followed along as they grew to a family of 7, and even moved across the globe to China! To the onlookers, Heidi’s life and family seemed pretty much “picture perfect”, so when Heidi’s 2nd oldest son Cory, took his own life at age 16 in 2015, real and virtual friends and fans alike where shocked and devastated. The story Heidi had to tell was not one that could simply be documented on a scrapbook page; this story was the “new normal” in the most unwelcome way. This story changed everything.

Heidi will be speaking about the power of perspective she has learned,  and how looking at your story through different “lenses” allows you to heal, grow, feel and keep moving forward.
