    4-in-1: 4 Tips on How to Be Healthy

    I don’t know about you guys, but I tend to forget that my body is a 4-in-1 deal. What do I mean by that? Well, our body consists of a physical body, the spirit, our soul, and our mind. In other words, if we want to be truly healthy we have to focus on all four areas: mental health, emotional health, physical health, and spiritual health. I work on my spiritual health a lot. I read God’s Word, I pray every day, I spend time in praise and worship (not as much as I should, but still), I listen to Elevation church preaching, Joel Osteen, and Joyce Meyer pretty much…

    Using Green Tea to Boost Your Health

    It’s a new year and that means that many of us are looking at our health. We all want good health, but if we really want to be healthier in 2018, we need to make some changes to our lifestyle. Some of them may need to be drastic, but some changes can be simple – like drinking more green tea. Hold on! Don’t click away because I said the dreaded words “green tea.” While my husband loves green tea, I personally can’t stand the taste of it. To me, it tastes like liquid grass. (shudder) However, one thing I have learned is that you can mix green tea with other…

    Love Does Not Boast

    Today I am continuing my love series from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, does not boast, is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” Love Does Not Boast First of all, what even is boasting? Well, according to Webster’s dictionary a boast is defined as┬áto “talk with excessive pride and self-satisfaction about one’s achievements, possessions, or abilities.” What does that look like in our lives?…

    12 Books for Christian Living

    The Bible is our greatest guide to life and tells us how God wants us to live, how we should treat one another, and what we should be doing with our lives. But sometimes, I find it hard to always understand what the Lord is trying to tell me. And I know from experience that it helps me grow when I read about other people who have the same problems, the same struggles, as I do and have gone through it and successfully come out the other side. I also know that I need constant (daily, sometimes hourly) encouragement to make it through stressful times. So, here are twelve books…

    What Everyone Ought to Know About Veganism: Part Two

    Hey there and welcome back to my blog! I hope you guys enjoyed part one of this series on veganism. I know some of the information can be hard to “hear” because we have grown so accustomed to including meat in our diets. And I’m not saying you have to cut it out entirely, as my husband and I have done. I just want you, my dear reader, to understand the unhealthy effects that meat can have on your body. My goal is not to frighten you, but to educate you on how to live a healthier life, have a healthy diet, and make better choices to improve your life.…

    What Everyone Ought to Know About Veganism: Part One

    Towards the end of August, my husband and I watched “What the Health” on Netflix. It really opened our eyes to the truth about health in our society, the dangers of eating meat, and helped us switch to veganism (although I do have cheese now and again). Many people have misconceptions about veganism and what it’s really all about. You see, it isn’t just about not killing animals and eating them. We aren’t bleeding hearts who throw red paint on fur coats. While I do see animals in a different light now that I’m not eating them, that isn’t why we switched our diet. We did it to create a…
