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...

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...

I am seriously unprepared to write a blog post because we started moving into our house. Thankfully, it is a step-wise process. We moved my laundry center—a stacked washer and dryer unit that doesn’t come apart. We drained the hoses as best as possible, but it was still a bear to move. I am a bit ouchy t...

Opposites attract, that’s for sure. Two totally different people with a handful of common interests walk down the aisle to say, “I do!” From that day forward they are now one. Or at least, as far as God is concerned. Later down the road, when your scale whines, “Lose weight!” you find out just how different t...

Why I Teach Christian Alternatives for Zen-based Exercise Forms

“Martial Arts is a RELIGION!” retorted a staunch fundamental brother in Christ when he found out that my first hubby and I had a Christian martial arts ministry. It was as if we were caught smuggling contraband into the Church. Interestingly, many people we knew from our Southern Baptist church had enrolled their children in local Taekwondo classes to help them learn self-defense an...

I remember standing with a group of kids while team captains picked their teams. I waited and waited for my name to be called until I was the only one left standing there… waiting. “Oh, do we HAVE to take HER?!?!” the team captain whined. The teacher insisted they did. I always held the end of the jump rope bec...

I hear it over and over, “We are too busy to do what we need to do for ourselves! Isn’t that selfish anyway?” What a common mantra people of different walks of life, faiths, and family status! You know what is so sad? Christians rarely see it differently! I recently addressed Christian health, fitness and wellness in my blog po...

Since I was a little girl, I loved to move. I climbed trees, swung on my swing set, walked down our tar and gravel road to go ice skating on a neighbor’s pond, and rode my bicycle to friends’ houses. A cold, snowy day was an invitation to come outside to make snow angels and build snowmen. Young children move....

Getting Your Workout On: Finding Your Fit in Fitness

Image by dubajjo from Pixabay.


A couple of questions I am often asked is: When is the best time to exercise? Where should I exercise? It sounds like simple, cut and dried answers would be the key. It is not. God did not create us the same and He certainly didn’t give us all the same lifestyle or family situation. Praise God! Life would be so boring, wouldn't it? When consid...
