How Teaching Yourself the Gospel Could Make You a Better Runner

I have always loved Hebrews 12:1-2! Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisherContinue reading “How Teaching Yourself the Gospel Could Make You a Better Runner”

How to Eat Healthy… It’s Easy!

Let’s be Real… It’s Not! “I wish I could eat healthy.”  Have you ever said that?  You know the drill.  Start a diet excited.  Get through the first week and crave something bad.

What is Your Focus?

As I began thinking about this I wondered if maybe my focus was off.  What is Christmas about anyway?  I researched a little on what the worlds view was and I found out that the percentage of people who believe in the true reason of Christmas is slowly declining.
