Jump Start Your Weight Loss with These Simple Steps

Jump Start Your Weight Loss with These Simple Steps

Write down everything you eat.  Everything.  Use your FP4H Live It Tracker, My Fitness Pal or other online or hand-written tools.  If you bite it, you write it. Work out in shorter, high-intensity intervals.  Try five minutes, three times a day, of one minute of each: jumping jacks, squats, jogging in place, ab crunches. Listen to your Scripture memory verse music daily.  Feed your spirit by loading your scripture memory CD from your FP4H Bible study onto your phone or IPod and play it while you walk off your stress or play in your car as you run errands. Drink 64 ounces of water daily.  Water is essential for healthy skin, blood flow and so many vital functions in your body.  Drink eight ounces before a meal and feel full faster! Make half your grains whole.  Whole grains provide fiber that fill you up and keep you on track.  Substitute whole grains for

Walking in Grace

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint (Isaiah 40:31). Our 2014 Summit is now in the memory bank of all who attended and as always, it was over the top wonderful.  Have you ever attended one of our First Place 4 Health events?  If not, I hope you will frequently check out the events on our website, and then make it your goal to attend one or more during the year to come.  These events are like a revival for the soul for all who attend, and this year was exceptional because of the home-going of my husband, Johnny, just a month ago.  The hugs I received from my FP4H family were extra special because of the prayers for me that preceded every hug. Thank you from the

First Place 4 Health Prayer Week – Details

First Place 4 Health Prayer Week - Details

I have to confess that “intercessor” is not my strongest gift.  In fact, while teaching and leadership were right at the top on a recent spiritual gifts inventory, intercessory prayer was at the bottom.  Ironically, I started praying that God would help me be a better prayer warrior.  It is working.  Philippians 2:13 (NLT) says that God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.Praise Him!  He is working in me to transform me into a prayer warrior. Since the first of January, I have felt a stirring of God in FP4H. God is bringing revival to the hearts of people across the land and to this ministry.  I am using Mark Batterson’s 40 day prayer challenge Draw The Circle. In the introduction he says, Preaching may move the hearts of men, but praying moves the heart of God, and that’s when revival comes.  I want
