  • Fitness beginnings: Make exercise a habit

    We all know we should exercise every day for better health. But fitting it in can be tricky with the demands of home, family and career. If you have fallen off the exercise wagon before, then you know how easy it is once you miss one day to skip the next one.

    That’s why it is so important for us to make exercise a daily habit. Research suggests it takes 21 days of doing an activity before it becomes a habit. Actually, if the habit is a new or a harder one (like exercise), it can take the average person up to 66 days to form a strong habit.

  • Finding strength in troubled times

    The days we live in are troubled times. Jesus told us, in the last days trouble would arise. Matthew 24:6 - “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” Verse 7 continues and says, “Nations will rise against nations, kings against kingdoms, there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.”
