Be Still

“Be still and know that I am God…” Psalms 46:10  Everyday we should have some sort of down time to refocus, relax and recommit. Even secular society realizes we need a break (thus why most have weekends off). Having a quieter time during the morning, day and/or night is what God is asking, in fact He commands it.We don’t have to be “doing” anything, except being.  Meditating on a Scripture and God, think about Him [...]

Dry Shampoo Review

I Love This Product!This post will relate to woman mostly, but men with longer locks can take advantage too.  God gave us a wonderful gift of HAIR! Think about how similar we would all look if we didn’t have individuality to express. I have fun with my hair, cutting it short, growing it long, adding colors of red or blonde, it’s fun to experiment because it will grow back.Hair colors do fade and the more [...]

AWESOME!

There are times when we ask God of things and they “don’t seem to happen”.  There are also other times when we ask and it’s a huge “BAM!” in your face answered prayer…although I would guess there are many of us that would say the first is more prevalent… I have got to share about How AWESOME God really is.  A few nights ago while sleeping I had a dream about a certain church service [...]

SQUEEZE in Exercise Anywhere!

I can only imagine what America would look like if there weren’t washers and dryers, microwaves, ovens, dishwashers and computers…I am sure you can too. Back in the Bible days people worked with their hands a lot more than the average office desk job the majority of Americans live at.  With all these machines, come lots of conveniences that we take for granted everyday…so much that we aren’t as active as back them.  Don’t get [...]

What’s Your Number One Focus?

Think of the Number One thing you HAVE to do today…maybe it’s work, maybe it’s cleaning or taking care of a loved one. Does it make you happy, sad, angry? Do you wish you could be doing something other than that “have to” today? Now, think of something you WANT to do today…it must be realistic. So for example, the idea of running away to a tropical island last minute with no preparation isn’t an [...]

Toxic Running

If God didn’t create the Sabbath than there would be way too many people stressed out – I should say – more stressed out than there already are. Look around or think of people you saw today in the store, at work, at school or in line. How many people were too focused or stressed looking?We are created to have rest days from everyday life. Take Saturdays or Sundays off to reset and refocus and [...]

How To Read A Food Label

  The Serving Size Pay attention to the serving size, especially how many servings there are in the food package. Then ask yourself, “How many servings will I consume”? 1/2 serving, 1 serving or 2? This is SUPER IMPORTANT! The size of the serving on the food package influences the number of calories and all the nutrient amounts listed on the top part of the label. In the sample label, one serving of macaroni and [...]

Calorie Measuring Stick

One Serving of Mac & Cheese or TWO? So if this was your measuring stick to decide how much total fat you are allowed to have in one day, check out what happens when you eat 1 more cup of a mac and cheese dinner. It doubles the amount of fat and calories. So if Mac and cheese dinner is on the menu for tonight…think 1 cup instead of 2. You have to have portion [...]

Counting Calories – How Many Do I Even Need?

This is a continuation of “Is Portion Control Controlling You?” First of all, please see your doctor if you have any issues with our heart, high blood pressure or diabetes, or other known ailments that may interfere with lowering your caloric intake. How do I know how many calories are right for me? There is a formula that was created to help figure out the natural caloric intake for the average person. Of course we [...]

Is Portion Control Controlling You?

I recently was talking to a friend and they told me they have never counted calories before – never! I couldn’t believe it. The reason why I couldn’t believe it was they were on a diet plan that told them to “just cut back” to lose weight. My friend wasn’t losing weight and didn’t know why. She was cutting back and wasn’t seeing results.As Christians we sometimes wonder if God is really helping us, or [...]
