the body (part 2): invested

the body (part 2): invested Have you ever been in a room where someone experienced a heart attack or stroke scare? When a body part stops working, the body suffers. Surgery may be needed, you might wind up disabled, or it can even result in death. But no one takes it lightly when your heart stops, your kidneys fail, or you you can’t move your fingers. Even your appendix, which no one quite knows what it’s there...

the body (part 1): connected

the body (part 1): connected Have you ever stubbed your toe or jabbed your elbow in just the wrong place so that you suddenly felt as if your whole body was in pain? You crouch over, wince, cry out–it doesn’t matter if only a tiny part of your body was hit by the offending table leg or wall; your whole body responds. That’s because our body is a single unit, even though it’s made up of many parts. We...

the trailhead (part 4): the power of life & death

the trailhead (part 4): the power of life & death Words. They so easily slip off the tongue, sometimes before we realize we’re really thinking them.

I don’t know who’s giving the most money or the largest percentage or any of that. But it’s pretty easy to see who has a generous mindset. We likely all know people who are...

the trailhead (part 2): breaking a sweat vs hitting snooze

the trailhead (part 2): breaking a sweat vs hitting snooze Ah, summer. The very word conjures up images of sitting by the pool with lemonade and sunglasses, a leisurely game of frisbee with friends, or vacationing with family. It has to be the most restful of seasons, a well-deserved break after 9 months of school. But it can also be an excuse to be lazy. With no alarm clock for school, what’s to keep you from sleeping in until noon? And without...

the trailhead (part 1): wisdom

the trailhead (part 1): wisdom One of my favorite activities in the summer is hiking. Set me out on the trails of some national park in the mountains and I am a happy camper! The sound of brush crunching under hiking boots and wind blowing through the pine trees, the fresh mountain air, and the breathtaking views–that’s pretty close to Heaven for me. There are lots of choices to make when you’re hiking. Every...
