I surrender

Are you a control freak? Do you get in your own way sabotaging your success? It’s common, but it doesn’t have to be that way. One of the biggest blessings in my life is learning to surrender. I still have my moments, don’t get me wrong, but surrendering has offered me the most freedom in my life. Mind: So what does surrendering…


The skinny on diet soda

If you are trying to win the “battle of the bulge” it’s likely that you have turned to diet soda as your beverage of choice. Bubbly, bursting with flavor, and no calories—who could ask for more? Well, I am sorry to be the one to burst all those tiny bubbles, my friend, but I have some not-so-good news for you. Recent studies have…



Perseverance…ever feel like that’s your middle name at times? I know I do. Get knocked down and get right back up again. Perseverance makes us stronger and keeps us from losing hope! It’s a gift God gives if we choose to apply it. Mind:… When I mentally think about perseverance, my mind takes me back to the childhood


Restless legs syndrome

If you’ve never heard of this semi-maddening, sleep-altering issue, count yourself and your loved ones as blessed!

While it seems harmless to those who find this position to be most comfortable, over time it can cause more harm than good. Even if you’ve slept…


Treat yourself with a little kindness today

Confession: “I’m not taking off weight fast enough!” After all it seemed like I gained it overnight. One day I woke up and was 30 lbs heavier than I was the last time I weighed. Talk about a bombshell…that I saw between my toes. Have you ever thought…you have been doing the work, watching the calories,…


The facts about flax

Okay, so had anyone even heard of flax seeds half a dozen years ago? These little seeds lived out their lives in relative obscurity likely because they resemble burnt sesame seeds or a part of the birdseed mix we fill our feeders with. But all that changed the day someone discovered they had a highly redeeming value—and flavor wasn’t…



The meaning of true beauty

Dove has a really cool campaign called “Real Beauty” – and in this video they had women describe themselves to a police sketch artist, then have someone else describe them… the difference in what these women see in themselves as opposed to how others see them is pretty drastic: The Bible has lots of great…
