Summer has been crazy busy here for me at Totally Fit 4 Life! While people have been flocking to beaches taking in a bit of rest and relaxation, I've been working furiously to improve services and information that ministers to you in your life. As I pull things together for fall, I am reminded about the call God gave me in 2011 to write and the confirmation this year to continue using the tools of health and fitness, but broaden the platform to health and wellness from a Christian worldview. There is a wonderful base of support through prayer partners who wage spiritual battle on my behalf,my family and friends, and my husband. And I have to tell you that the battle was heated this week! He has been generous to me with his love, time, energy, ideas, encouragement and so much more! The support of a godly husband or wife is vital to ministry! I praise God that I am blessed this way.
The platform for this ministry has broadened to Christian health and wellness. One aspect of your life will affect the others: physical, mental/emotional, relationships, and faith. The lens we view health and wellness through is that of biblical Christian faith. The lens determines the outcomes. Some newer areas you will see addedto greater depth will be health conditions, relationships like marriage, parenting, work relationships and stress factors, emotional disorders, eating disorders, financial stress, etc. The difference here from other Christian ministries is that of the platform of Christian health and wellness.
One note to bring up is this ministry is a personal ministry. It is not a non-profit organization. The costs and red tape to do this aren't reasonable at this time. There are charges for some services to cover costs. The Christian community is notorious for expecting something for nothing. The truth is that there are costs involved to providing ministry and you may be one those instruments God uses to help off-set those costs. Right now, those costs have been coming out of our pockets here at home. Please, be considerate. I addressed this in "The Value of a Personal Trainer". Also, all content on this website is copyrighted. That does not mean to" copy right out of" what I have here and use it as if it were yours. You may use it in your own life for personal growth. However, to use it as your own work is theft. It does mean securing permission from me to copy and distribute in any format. You must give proper credit by using my name and the website URL with the material. Thank you in advance for respecting me with this issue.
Here are some things to watch for:
1. GutBusters Weight Loss Challenge
2. Guts 2 Gallons Weight Loss Challenge
3. Resources such as Totally Fit 4 Life Healthy Lifestyle Journal (due to come out in September), No Zen Zone, and special speaker availability.
4. New look and some formatting changes for website
5. Services will continue, but are being reviewed for clarity, pricing, etc.
6. Faith Statement
7. Timing of blog posts and other social media posts will probably change.
By the way, The Cost of Health was accidentally published before I finished it. Save and Publish buttons are side by side. Sorry! Several people read it. Please, go back if something didn't seem right. You probably read my working draft before it was finished and cleaned up. Thank you for understanding!
Trail of Blood (Part 6) is scheduled for posting by the end of today. Sorry about the delay, but this one has been tough to write. I never want to be rightly accused of mishandling God's Word. That would be a horrible error. So, watch during the day. It should be finished and posted.
Which website format do you like best? The tree, footprints, or water? Email me and let me know. Three winners will be chosen to receive a free Healthy Lifestyle Journal. It will be finished and going to press very soon.
Please, feel free to contact me at email@example.com for more information, give suggestions, etc. You are a wonderful bunch of people, such a blessing! May God bless you abundantly in all you do.
