I got a call after I arrived home from a long, grueling work day at the gym: "I need to talk to you about...." So I finished my conversation with that manager, ate dinner and decided to check email afterward. In my inbox were emails from my boss about work-related topics. My thought was something like this: "Why can't work stay at wo...

I recently posted a meme that said, “If you’ve become obsessed about weighing yourself often to see if you’ve lost weight, then put the scale away.” That meme seemed to put some of my friends and followers off. Please, let me clarify that statement. I was anorexic in my last year of high school and beginning of college. In my pre-...

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...

Almost every woman wants other people to think she is beautiful, especially her boyfriend or husband. The truth is not every one of us is beautiful in appearance to everyone around us. I never really felt beautiful. I’m not to the majority of the world, to be honest. Both of my husbands believed otherwise. Each one felt that ...

I forgot something valuable in my last post: the purpose of taking care of your health. This week’s post ties into that issue.


Over the years of working with clients with weight loss and health improvement goals, I’ve noticed a lot of people with poor self-images. The internal messages running in...

Whenever we travel, God always points out situations or experiences that fit the blog post I've planned or at least, this platform. We flew to Florida for an airshow with free time worked into our plans. Little did we know, we escaped Michigan's subzero temperatures and lots of snow. When we left the airport, we were greeted w...

My hubby and I spent a week out just to get away. We were on burnout, just absolutely spent. Rest and relaxation were just what we needed. I had to force myself to not write or create memes. That was hard. I only posted a Bible verse from my iPhone app. In the meantime, while we were at my hubby’s family Christmas gathering, I started seeing people post on social m...

I have to say I’m not in the holly, jolly mood this year. It has been stressful trying to balance work, finishing our house, and prepping for Christmas.

We spent time with my husband’s son and his wife at their home. She is pregnant and due in December, meaning that she was unabl...

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...
