Breast Augmentation $6,450. Eyelid Surgery $4,500. Facelift $12,125. Liposuction $6,025. Injectable fillers $1300. 100% Virgin Human Hair $500. Your body? Really? Priceless. It’s mine. It’s not like I am going to become a pastor or a pastor’s wife, I thought. So, I took my first fitness model shots. For the most part, I really liked the [...]

I guess the only way to know is to pay attention. To pay attention requires awareness and alertness. It requires [...]

Integrating Dance into your Faith and Health

At what turned out to be a "Dance, Stretch & Relax" class I taught to seniors at an assisted-living facility last week, I couldn't help but notice how the 80-and-90-something-year-old participants came alive in a really big way immediately upon moving their bodies.

What Does God Have to Say about Facebook?

Is it Faith-based or Christ-centered?

A business owner recently read through my resume and called me to set up an interview for the part-time work opportunity she had available. While we were on the phone scheduling that meeting, she stated, "There's one thing I want to ask you about now."
