ABOUT THE BLC HEADQUARTERS

BLC "Better Living Center" Headquarters was birth from EL SHADDAI ENTERPRISES, where the primary mission has been to teach others how to become healthy, how to build wealth, and how to fulfill their unique vision, while  providing a creative space for our community to use their talents, resources, abilities, and passions (T.R.A.P.S.) in positive expressions of art and media.

Formally was known as EL SHADDAI ENTERPRISES - Better Living & Wellness Center, and founded by nurse and medical missionary, Isabelle R. Dickens, RN, PA, MSN, in 1986. Since then our primary goal has been to build a long lasting foundation through teaching the 8 Laws of Health, and using the acronym NEW START; Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Temperance, Air, Rest and Trusting Relationships.  We know that health is our most valuable asset, and our goal is to continue the legacy of teaching others how to protect this asset, while living a long, healthy life.  We believe that good health is a choice.  

The Secondary goal of the BLC Headquarters is to increase the financial IQ of our community. We do this by offering free or low-cost courses, including; Budgeting 101, How to Reduce Debt and Increase Income, Credit Management 101, and How to Plan for Retirement.  We further encourage the participants to determine their specific T.R.A.P.S. in order to pursue their purpose, which clarifies the specific reasons for maintaining health and building wealth. 

 

Finally, this location provides a space for any creative activity or gathering place for hosting events like, health and nutirition classes, rehearsals, workshops and seminars, casting calls, filming, listening parties, book signings, trunk shows, intimate celebrations for any special occasion, and so much more.  We welcome all creative hearts and minds to utilize this special location to produce their unique vision and become a benefit to our community.
