How to Work Out, What to Eat to Get Your Ideal Body

The human body is a never ending series of impressive feats. When we take a moment to stop and think of all the functions and feats our bodies make possible every single day, it can be amazing to know that purely organic elements can all come together and make things happen. Regardless of any individual challenges, ailments or problems a person faces, the uber-vast majority of the body itself functions absolutely perfectly, keeping us alive, aware and living life. This doesn't mean that the body cannot have flaws or be improved; in fact, there is much that can be done to better both physical and mental health. Whether you are a few pounds overweight, suffering from obesity or are just merely out-of-shape, the goal to get in shape and achieve that ideal body is a dream many people share.

The Pastor's Wife with the Purple Hair!!! THAT"S ME!

Image
Yep, that's me!  Purple looks good on me!   But keep reading... this one might touch ya!  

So, for a year I was afraid to put some purple in my hair.   I was afraid it would fade and look terrible.  I was afraid of being judged and looked at differently.  I questioned my motives as I want to be in the world but not of the world as a Christian mom and wife.  Would some think I overstepped?   Would people leave our church?  Would people not want to come to the church?   Would people consider me a sinner?  Is God okay with this?  Those are just a few of the many questions that popped into my brain.   
You know those lies that tear you apart from staying aligned to Daddy God.   You know, remembering to keep your identity aligned to Christ!  Not allowing lies to become my thinking!  I had a lot of stinking thinking when it came to this decision.  Even after talking with my husband who had no reservations to throw my way.  He told me to go for it yet it took me months to finally do it.

Mini Getaway to Celebrate 11 year

Image
Happy 11 years!  

I love that guy!   That guy right there knows me, knows me better than myself sometimes.   He orders food at restaurants that he knows I will like in case what I order I dislike.  He is the best listener... even better than I am- sometimes he says he is the female in this relationship because he talks more than the average male.  :)  We have fun together all the time.  Most importantly I am thankful for God to bring me this man and pick him for my spouse because he leads me.   He loves me and encourages me in everything I do but most importantly he prays for me and with me.  
We technically should have done this mini two-night getaway last month to celebrate 11 years of marriage but better late than never.   Next year we are saving money and taking a plane somewhere! 








How to Achieve the Perfect Smile

Do you often refuse to show your teeth when someone snaps your photograph? Do you ever look in the mirror and wish your teeth were straighter or whiter? Don’t allow your teeth to dent your confidence. All you need to do is follow our top tips for achieving the perfect smile. Brush Your Teeth Twice Daily Everyone must brush their teeth a minimum of twice daily to achieve a clean, healthy smile. Aim to brush your teeth for between two to three minutes and only use a fluoride toothpaste. However, we recommend gentle brushing, especially around the gum line. Many people make the mistake of rigorously brushing their teeth, which will only damage their gums and cause future dental complications. Don’t Forget to Floss Flossing should also become part of your daily oral hygiene routine. If you are not doing so already, floss your teeth twice a day, just before brushing. It will remove any plaque build-up in between your teeth to create a whiter smile. Do you have braces? Consult an orthodontist t…

The importance of teaching your children road safety

Ensuring your child has a full grasp of the importance of road safety from an early age is crucial, not only to prevent accidents while they’re young, but also in the future when they’re operating on the road themselves. In this article, we’ll take you through a few quick and simple ways to teach road safety. The importance of holding hands In the first few years of a child’s life it is relatively easy for you to keep them close as they’ll be contained by the straps of a pushchair, but when they do grow up and become a little more adventurous, holding hands with mommy or daddy is no longer cool. This is where you have to jump in and insist that holding hands, especially when crossing the road, is the safest thing to do. There are a number of ways you can reinforce this behavior such as by creating a ‘hand in hands’ picture. Draw around the hands of both yourself and your child’s, put their cutout on top of yours and attach them with a split pin. This is a great team activity, where you …
