Do check back often. I am in the process of retitling some of my posts due to lack of responses. It may be that the titles were not as attention-grabbing as I thought. My readership is comprised of Christians and non-Christians, mostly 35+ but I have quite a few in their 20s from all walks of life. It is my desire to have something for everyone who comes here that will meet a need.
There are still changes happening to the website based on needs and requests. recently I added an author page. An author/speaker bio and press release will be coming soon. Check things out and give me your input. Email
The food of the week is the raspberry! You will likely see them on sale at the grocery store right now. Just 100 grams is worth is 52 calories. Not only are the delicious, they are full of flavinoids (good at fighting aging, cancer, etc), vitamins C, A, & E which are anti-oxidants, potassium, manganese, copper, iron and magnesium. Wow! Who would have thought such small berries could pack such a wallop to aging, heart disease, cancer, and the oxidation processes our bodies go through?

On of the most comprehensive ab exercises is the seated oblique twist. You will find that you must hold your abs tight when you lean back and then twist with either a regular ball or a weighted ball. Keep your eyes on the ball as you turn. If you have never done this exercise before, put your feet under something that will not move so you can lean back slightly without curling. It is important in any abdominal twisting motion to keep the spine lined up correctly. Inhale at the center, exhale on the twist, inhale moving back to center, exhale turning the other direction. As you progress, you will be able to keep your heels on the floor. For a more advanced move, lift the feet slightly off the floor. A variation would be the Genie, with or without weight.

Always stay focused the right direction. The Apostle Paul tells his young companion in ministry, Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:8: "For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come."
Many blessings to you!
