This is an intentional
- calling anyone who may be interested in joining Sp-team
First Place 4 Health. You can find the link from my SP-page if interested.
I reactivated this SPARKteam shortly after I recommitted back on SARKPEOPLE (11/12/13). I currently lead a F2F group at my parish and thought it would be great to bring LIFE back into this SP-team as well. The premise of FIRST PLACE 4 HEALTH - a Christ-centered total-wellness Bible Study program advocates helping one obtain a balanced life through motivation (spiritual), healthy eating (mental), support (emotional) and exercise (physical). Itís all about a personal relationship with God, enhanced by group encouragement, support and accountability. The program focuses on balancing the four-sided person - Spiritual (soul/faith), mental (mind set), emotional (heart/feelings) and physical (strength/activity)
So in other words - FP4H is everything that SP offers plus pulling on the powers of GOD to walk along side you in your journey. I personally began this program as a member back in the early 90ís and it was the best program I had ever experienced, and still is. But unfortunately life situations began to erode the group leaders transferring them out of the area and this group began to dissolve. I then wandered quite a few years on my one - ya how did that work for me?
Then in 2009 I began searching again for a F2F meeting in my area and FOUND NOTHING! I truly believe it was GOD inspired that brought me to begin a group at my parish in January 2010. And proud to say this group has been going strong ever since, with two 12 week sessions a year, one in January and one in September. We just began our 11th session on January 11th (WOW what a coincidence - 11 and 11)
Additionally by leading a F2F by the 2nd session GOD had instilled it on my heart to return to school and I successfully completed an ASA in Dietetics
because of the interest and
of this program I have!
During the holidays between our 10th and now 11th session I got the brainy idea to start up the SparkTeam and offered a 6-week Bible Study fittingly called Healthy Holidays, which was a bust.
Although the current membership reflects 68 members there was really no activity other than myself and one or two other posts, sadly
. But I am determined and will run the current F2F Bible Study simultaneous here on this SP-team and pray for activity to grow. I would love the support from others who may be interested in joining or becoming re-active on this SP-team. Why not stop by or if wanting more information on this program, check out their official website at firstpalce4health.org.
The Bible Study we are currently doing is Moving Forward Together
and the book ISBN is 9780830755028. I hope to meet more of you on this SP-team and wish all of you much success on your journey here on SP, in 2014 and all through your life journey, wherever it may take you!
