one in seven Americans exercises enough and eats
enough fruits and vegetables, and men are worse than women, federal
officials said in April. "These

Study after study continually show how exercise can ease our diseases, improve our outlook and decrease the numbers on our scale. We have found that family time can be a great way to increase all of our fitness levels. We love to engage in a wide variety of physical activity as part of our family recreation. Our children are too small to take long bicycle rides or long hikes, but they are not too young to be engaged throughout the day in fun, short sprints. We find ways to make extra movement fun such as racing to the mailbox, playing a game of tag, unloading groceries in relay race style and walking further into the store because we found a shady parking spot at the far end of the parking lot. All activity throughout the day adds up to fun, fitness and vibrant living.
Have you ever had a day when you feel a little lost? Don’t seem to know which way to go with an important decision looming in front of you? Well, that was me today. Luckily a good friend sent me a devotion which I really needed. It redirected my thinking, pointed me back to the Word of God, and most importantly refocused my view of God.

Family gatherings, especially around the holidays, are such fun. It gives us all a chance to remember where we come from and where we still want to go. Being connected as part of a larger family gives us a sense of belonging and history. For some of us, it gives us a desire to move on and for some of us it gives us a desire to move back. The older my children get, the more important I see their need to know that they belong to something bigger than themselves. Belonging to the family of God is the most important family my children belong to and the most important family I want to train them up to be part of. We have found and been blessed with tremendous family members – some of them blood relatives, but most of them are not. We have found that our closest family members are those which we share common beliefs in the sovereignty of God and His Word. We have also learned to truly appreciate all of our relationships within our family. God has a unique purpose for every family member, great or small and we love being able to watch His hand move and direct.
I had an exciting time today in
my kitchen. On the
fly, I created a new recipe which was
incredibly easy and everyone enjoyed.
Okay, so perhaps I didn’t create as much
as modify one to make it
easier, faster and include another vegetable.
I took my good old standard lasagna recipe and added
an extra layer of
peeled and sliced eggplant. I
decided that I was really tired of precooking the noodles, so I put
uncooked and added a little extra sauce.
We enjoyed our dinner tonight and I had enough left
over to freeze for
another day. The
key to great, totally
vegetarian lasagna is in the
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree.
