One thing that is great about starting my day with the Lord is that I have time to pray and ask Him to help me through the day. So yesterday (and today as well) I prayed that God would give me strength to go through the day making healthy choic... Read more

Not Giving Up
It's true, I'm not giving up. Thanks to those who commented on my last post and encouraged me. I knew even when I wrote it that I wouldn't actually give up, but I think I needed to just say that I wanted to so I could move past it. I have fel... Read more
