Healthy Snack Packs for On-the-Go Families

The door swings open. The kids rush in, throwing backpacks aside. We have exactly 30 minutes before we need to head out to soccer practice.

Our family's schedule is super hectic. These healthy snack packs have helped us many times, as we drive between school and sports practice. I love that I can just throw a bag full of healthy snacks in my purse to have available for the kids at any given moment.

Life with teens and ‘tweens can be hectic. Throw a preschooler into the mix, and it seems we’re always on the run.

You’ve been told the promise of God: that your people, the Israelites, would be given the land of Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey.

Take Care of Your Temple – Your Health is Important

I’m on a mission this year – a mission to go deeper.

Does God care about how you take care of your physical health? Well, if your body is the temple of Christ, then yes. We need to be good stewards of the bodies God has given us. But where do we start if we haven't worked out in a while. Read on! It's not that hard. I promise!

A couple of weeks ago, I explained what that meant. Deeper faith, deeper relationships, deeper commitments.
