Carole Lewis, Director Emeritus at First Place for Health, led the organization as the National Director from 1987 to 2014. As a member of the original First Place group that began in 1981, she watched the program grow from 12 groups in one church to thousands of members at more than 12,000 churches nationwide and in many foreign countries.
Carole has authored fifteen books and leads conferences, Christian spas, workshops, and seminars emphasizing personal and spiritual balance, fitness, encouragement, and temperament analysis.
Her audiences know her as warm, transparent, honest, and humorous. Carole and her late husband, Johnny, have three children (one deceased), eight grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. Carole lives in Houston, Texas, where she leads a Bible study at her church and a First Place for Health group.
