I've heard parents and teachers exclaim, "School starts next week. Can you believe it?" Frantically they shop for kids' clothes and school supplies. All those forms will come home to be filled out and returned to teachers. Football practice and cheerleading tryouts place many parents' backsides in the seats of bleachers waiting… waiti...Read Full Post »

It’s been interesting since I came back from the Christian writers conference and retreat now that I am trying to get caught up. Nothing came to mind for my blog post this week. Ugh! How can I have something for you if my mind goes blank? So, I decided to take a break this morning to do my PraiseMoves workout and devotions together...Read Full Post »

Thank you for your patience while I was away. Although I wanted to write a blog post for you last week, it was as if God wanted me to bask in Him and His goodness at the Christian writer’s retreat. So, I left it alone. Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in a routine and implied promises and lose focus. G...Read Full Post »

The grandkids wrinkled up their noses while they picked at their food on one of their visits a couple of years ago. “Grandma, I don’t like this. Can we have mac and cheese?” What they meant to say was they didn’t like the healthy meal I cooked because they were used to hyper-flavored boxed fare. It is tough to...Read Full Post »

You are right. There was no blog post this week. I've been on edge waiting for word that my daughter-in-law's condition was under control. It's been a worrisome week. Most of you know she went into the emergency room in serious condition with pneumonia. Until July 4th, she was sedated on a ventilator unable to respond to people talking to her or touching he...Read Full Post »

Since I came home from vacation, I’ve dealt with a very long flare-up that knocked me down bad. I felt terrible about spending more time in bed than getting healthy activity, that is until Achievement contacted me about my above average physical activity for having chronic pain and fatigue issues. Whoa! Me? Ms. Sleep-Until-Ridiculously-...Read Full Post »

I’ve had the great opportunity to spend time in conversation with some senior saints about living a long life and what it is like as they come closer to the end of life before going home with the Lord. Our home is still under construction, finalizing g all the details for our final inspection. One of the people helping us finish the detai...Read Full Post »

I have a grill that needs cleaned up for the season sitting in our garage. Thoughts of grilled chicken brats, grilled corn on the cob, salad, and grilled peaches stuffed with seasonal berries have my mouth watering. Our grill is gas, so cooking is cleaner than with charcoal. Some considerations must be observed for safe grilling li...Read Full Post »

Last week, I shared briefly about active transportation and how it helps people stay more physically fit. This week, I would like to dig deeper into this topic and help you find ways to put some of these principles into practice.
My hubby used to run regularly, including running 5ks. He also loves riding 20-25 miles ...Read Full Post »
