Be Still

God is God, the creator of the cosmos, the redeemer of man, the victor over death, the ruler of nations and earth.  He is worth your time and attention, and you can trust Him with your stress, your tasks, your sorrow, your needs, your dreams, your fears…

Thought for the Week: Psalm 139:1-4

by admin on April 14, 2013 in Faith, Health with No Comments

Lord, You know my lying downs. You know when I am asleep and when I’m awake. You know all the thoughts that rush through my mind. You know my body and what kind of energy I will need to thrive on my wedding day. Let me rest in that assurance even if my body is unable to claim rest the night before the big day. Be glorified even in my restlessness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

A Healthy Sacrifice

by admin on April 2, 2013 in Faith, Health with No Comments

Even good things like staying healthy can become idols when they come before your love for the Lord. But knowing that God delights in your health allows you to pursue your health for His sake first, and then for your own. As you present your body as a living sacrifice, you will find that your mind, your heart, and your habits will reap the benefits of transformed living for God’s sake.

Guest Post from Wendie Aston: Eco-Friendly Plated Dinner

by admin on March 19, 2013 in Health, Logistics, Reception Traditions, Rehearsal Dinner with No Comments

In an effort to be eco-friendly and produce less waste, a plated dinner is the best option. The amount of food wasted from a buffet is enormous; most guests tend to indulge in the cocktail hour foods and may not have an appetite for a large buffet dinner.  A plated dinner ensures each guest has an adequate amount of food that is displayed beautifully.

Thought for the Week: 1 Peter 3:4

by admin on March 18, 2012 in Attire, Health, Thought for the Week with No Comments

Lord, You are true beauty. I look at Your creation, and I am mesmerized. I experience Your grace, and I am humbled. I want more of You, Lord. And I pray that You would shape my beauty, that I would have a gentle and quiet spirit that is marked by Your grace, peace, and joy. Because of my faithfulness to You, let my husband always see the beauty in me, even when my outward appearance no longer resembles the girl he fell in love with. Let him always recognize me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Thought for the Week: James 1:11

by admin on February 26, 2012 in Faith, Health, Thought for the Week with 2 Comments

Lord, I believe it is for Your sake that I do so many good things. But I know myself well enough to confess that sometimes it’s my desire for control or my pride that keeps me overly productive. Forgive me, Jesus. Teach me how to dwell with You! Fill me up with Your lasting presence, and shine a light on any sin related to busyness that I need to confess and repent of. I want You to shine through me, and I know that I stifle Your light when I’m too hurried or distracted. Woo me, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Beauty from the Inside Out

by admin on June 6, 2011 in Health with No Comments

God has brilliantly created fruits and vegetables to contain a synergistic power blend of vitamins, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Eating the foods in their natural form are far more potent of a preventative and restorative measure than supplements or vitamins that are extracted from their natural form and encapsulated as an isolated nutrient.

What Juice Plus+ has done is to juice and dehydrate seventeen different fruits and vegetables, encapsulating the juice powder so you can daily consume the vitamins, antioxidants, and phytonutrients of seventeen different fruits and vegetables in their whole-food form without having to buy and juice the fruits and veggies yourself.
