Pray in Your Storm No Matter What

I was inspired once again of the story of Hezekiah. The King of ancient times in the Bible whose life was told was going to end by the great prophet Isaiah.

He wept bitterly and reminded God that he walked in truth, had a loyal heart and [...]

I am blessed to be able to teach fitness classes in other countries…yes, a dream job. The number one thing about any fitness class is that… I absolutely LOVE exercising outside!

Partner Exercises

Social Interaction is an important part of our everyday lives that we take for granted.  We interact with others either at the office, grocery store, out for a walk, at the gym, driving in the car or even on the phone or Internet. Just by chatting or leaving a comment on a blog is communication. God has called us to interact with people and witness our love for Him by our actions and attitudes. So [...]
