Biblical Encouragement After a Storm

Storms are all around us. Sometimes they are literal and sometimes they are figurative. Either way they can be scary and often tragic.

I'd also encourage you to look up the verses that I didn't write in full.

These Ft. Myers Residents Lost ALOT…But Not Thier Faith

What a week it has been.  On Saturday 9/24, Sofiya and I flew out for a 2-day ministry trip to Philadelphia and New York City. Prior to leaving, almost nobody here seemed to be thinking about having to deal with the hurricane. When we came back on Monday morning though, it was on everyone's minds.   What happened was shocking.  

In the nearly 29 years that I've lived in Florida, I've not seen a storm hit our region as badly...

1.8M Person Study Shows Exercise Cuts COVID Risks By 40+%

These days, I'm willing to bet that if you ask just about anyone in America over 12 years old- "do you believe that exercise is good for you?"- they'd probably say- "yes."

Many people even understand some of the specific benefits of exercise, such as- better muscle, bone and joint health, reduced bodyfat, better heart, lung and brain function, better energy and mood, less pain, and a greater ability to be mobile and active.

72,000 Person Study Shows This Increases Risk of Dementia

If you are over the age of 50 you've probably thought a time or two about the possibility of developing the dementia. Sadly, most of us have seen the ravaging toll that it can take on an individual (and on their families), and after seeing that you realize that dementia is something you want to avoid like the plague.  

Unfortunately, many people believe that developing dementia is just a roll of the dice and that there's not much we...

New Study: This Makes People Exercise More

Have you ever noticed that although most people know that getting regular exercise is good for them, VERY few people actually do it?  There could be many different reasons for this but very often it is simply just a lack of motivation.       

Why am I bringing this up? 

Because a new study was released this month that reveals an interesting way people are becoming motivated to be more physically active.  The University of South Australia reviewed...

Deadly Chemical Found in 80% Of Americans’ Urine

As a survivor of childhood leukemia, there are not many things that anger me more than seeing companies flood our environment, our shelves, and ultimately our bodies with cancer causing agents.  Why am I bringing this up today? Because it was just reported by the CDC that over 80% of Americans tested were found to have the cancer-causing chemical glyphosate (also known by its brand name "Round-Up") in their urine.   

You can read about that here- Weed Killing Chemical Found...
