Did you know: Chronic sleeplessness can cause illness? Read on and find out!
Hey family, Here’s a little something on the lighter post side, yet VERY important as we need to get things done, yet balance that with getting the proper rest. Yes, we need to take care of the physical body as best we can so we can be equipped to carry out God’s duties, whether it’s ministry, family, work, school, or in many situations, a combination of many or all of the above! By applying the information in the link below, in addition to praying away anxiety (Philippians 4:6-7 tells you all about that), and casting all your cares on God (after all, He does care for you, I Peter 5:7 says so), you’ll find your stress level lowering and sleep quality rising. 🙂 Click here for more information. Enjoy and God bless you! BlenCouragesU
Hey Family, With the heat and humidity of summer in full swing, our thirst increases as we try to cool down.

Hey family, If you’re like me, you strapped on the feedbag on Thanksgiving.. and it’s been on ever since! As a result and since 2014 is fast approaching, you may be aflutter about eating better. Let’s make things easy, shall we? In between the rolls, cakes and other assorted goodies, I’ve still been consuming my green smoothies. As a reminder, these nutrient-dense treats help to take the edge off the hunger and nourish you at the same time. It’s an easy habit to begin and you’ll actually start craving them once you start. Here’s a cool infographic to get your started..I use Almond Milk as my base, but you can use whatever works best for you. Experiment and enjoy! Here’s to a healthier 2014!

Hey Family! Awhile back, I spoke about the love I have for smoothies, specifically green smoothies. I have one or two almost daily packed with spinach or kale, a banana, almond milk, and super foods like cacao, coconut oil, chia, flax and hemp seeds. I usually supplement my healthy-ish meals (hey, sometimes you need a little cake!) with my smoothie and other times, I take it with me as I run errands or in between church services. It fills for a bit and keep me out of fast food land. This infographic, courtesy of superskinnyme.com, gives you a great idea on different types of smoothies and their effect on your body. Take a look and let me know if you have questions!
