“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...Read Full Post »

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...Read Full Post »

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...Read Full Post »

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....Read Full Post »

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...Read Full Post »

I think young adults are amusing when they think people in their 40s are old. When someone I know turns 40, they are often perplexed at the loss of hair, migration of hair, the gray hair -- m...Read Full Post »

I went cycling on a local trail with my hubby this past weekend. The ride started off tough for the first 3 to 4 miles. My legs burned badly. “Stop it!” they screamed. But I pushed through anyway and the burn went away. Walking 1 to 3 miles a day is good, but doesn’t help me stay in shape. Cycling f...Read Full Post »

Your smartphone alarm goes off early in the morning for you to drag body out of bed and take off at a breakneck pace. You look at your calendar app just to see it packed again. What’s first? Your schedule bleeds into your evening. Somewhere you squeeze in picking up your kids and ordering groceries for pick up. It’s the same grind ever...Read Full Post »

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to ride my bike outdoors. As I write you, there are snowflakes falling in April with temperatures in the 20-30’s! Yuck! Where is Spring? Hope...Read Full Post »
