Scripture Sunday: You Are God’s Masterpiece

"For we are God's masterpiece.  He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago." - Ephesians 2:10 (NLT) We are a masterpiece.  We are a Michaelangelo, a Vincent van Gogh, a Leonardo daVinci, a work of art like the Mona Lisa.  The difference?  We are from the master artist.  The artist who created the master artists.  He created us brand new through His son, Jesus Christ.  And He has plans for us.  Plans he set out for us from the beginning of time.  We have a purpose.  And…

Work-in-Progress Wednesday: Printable Scripture Cards

Last week I started working on a project that I think you will really enjoy.  I was looking for a way that I could carry around some of my favorite Bible verses with me so that I can refer to them when I really need them (and eventually memorize them).  I did find some I liked, but I also wanted something a little more extensive.  I did find one idea on Pinterest that I really liked: after you print out the cards, punch holes in them, place them on a key ring (or book ring), and attach them to your purse.…

My Daughter Was Labeled “Obese”: Where Do We Draw the Line?

Before I get into my story, let me just start by giving you the official definition of BMI. Simply said, BMI (or Body Mass Index) is a simple mathematical formula (or equation, if you will) used to calculate body fat based on height and weight. In other words, weight (in pounds), divided by height (in inches) squared, multiplied by 703 equals BMI. Here's a little history for you: BMI, also called the Quetelet index, was created by Adolphe Quetelet while developing what he called "social physics", between 1830 and 1850. BMI became popular around 1972, when the Journal of Chronic…
