Rest your Mind

Imagine a sports car traveling 80 miles an hour. Imagine capturing a camera shot of events past, present and future—some beautiful, some fearful, some regretful, some prideful. Imagine a “to do” list with no end in sight. Imagine a choir of voices consisting of your mother, father, teacher, pastor, friends, boss all creating a cacophonous of sounds and somewhere there is your voice. This is your mind.Read more.

The Real Source of Power

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” 2 Corinthians 4:7

I have always been physically active. Recently, however, I have started homeschooling my 6 and 4 year old daughters. This means, obviously, that they are with me all the time. So, it is much more difficult for me to take time out to exercise. I would much rather use my free time to do other things… like sleep!

It is also a great effort to provide healthy meals for my family. If I do not provide them, they will not happen. It takes effort and planning. Sometimes- many times truthfully- I just don’t feel like doing it. Not to mention the fact that I really, really like comfort food and chocolate and all other manner of unhealthy things!

For the last few years, I have struggled with this. I mean, is it really so bad to eat that candy bar? What’s the big deal? It’s just one candy bar. Why can’t I just sit down and watch that one TV show that totally takes my mind off my day and allows me my version of a “nothing box”? Other people watch hours of TV without giving it a second thought. Why can’t I just watch this one show? Read more of “The Real Source of Power” by Kirsten Nelson.

Survival of the Fittest

“Predation of one animal upon a weaker one is a fact of life in the natural world. “Survival of the fittest” is a law that emphasizes that fact. Therefore, some people argue that to better our chances of survival, we need to be physically fit. However, shouldn’t there be something more meaningful that governs us, as human beings?
I believe there is.” Read more of “Survival of the Fittest” by John Gallegos in the current issue of LiveLiving Christian Health and Wellness magazine, “Physical and Spiritual Fitness with Power”.

Why is the Church in Trouble


Our bodies were designed to move. Obesity is at an all time high because so many of us are not exercising and not eating well. We ride in our cars instead of walking. We take the elevator instead of the stairs. We park in the nearest parking space at the grocery store instead of walking the distance. Some of us work to an extent that we seem chained to our desk. Obesity is not just a problem, it is an epidemic and it’s costing the body of Christ. In LiveLiving’s magazine issue, “Physical and Spiritual Fitness with Power”, Dr. Kara Davis tells us why the church is in trouble. Read more.
