How Faith Can Transform Your Health

Faith in Jesus has huge impact on our well-being. Everyone knows that being a healthy and well-rounded person is much more than simply being healthy physically.  True health starts from the inside out. Well, I was curious just how much of an impact a transformed inside could have on the body, and what I discovered was shocking. Your faith has the power to radically transform your health. When I was in college I was sitting complacently in a health and wellness class. It was one of those “required” courses that I needed to graduate.  Each class period I would dolefully pull out my spiral notebook and take halfhearted notes on proper lifting form, how to combat obesity, and how to eat a balanced diet. Needless to say the class was a breeze. I knew all this. In fact, I prided myself on my knowledge in the department of…

How To Let Go Of The Past

Our past can leave scars. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is on its way, so why do we all have such a hard time letting go of the past?  We all have a past. Some pasts include heartbreak, sorrow grief, distress, and failure. Others include glory, honor, success, and pride.  I’d say however that most pasts include a little bit of both. Have you ever felt stuck in the past? As if a past mistake or past hurt is a looming road block placed directly in front of you. Unmovable and impossible to go around. Those roadblocks sister, often keep us from moving forward, from living in God’s perfect present glory. We get stuck on the big… “what if” What if I hadn’t made that choice? What if I had taken that job? What if they hadn’t died? What if we hadn’t broken up? What…

How to Handle Loneliness During the Holidays

Christmas and New Years are all about love, joy, and peace; but many people forget about another prominent emotion this time of year: loneliness. The holiday season, while filled with cheer and merriment, can often be one of the loneliest times of the year for so many people. How is a girl not to feel lonely when mistletoe is every where, hallmark movies are on an endless loop, and that fantasized midnight kiss on new years is weeks away? What is a girl to do? I remember a few seasons ago I was binge watching romantic hallmark movies on TV. They are on pretty much 24/7 and all have the exact same plot. Unfamiliar?  Let me help. Each movie opens with a  young girl who left home to make her mark in the big city. Reluctantly, she decides to come home for the holidays to help her family who…
