I had the chance to attend a wellness seminar last night led by Dr. Laura Ruby. Dr. Laura works primarily with women to help them understand the relationship between chronic symptoms and core nutritional imbalances, environmental factors and poor lifestyle choices.I was one of the few guys there to hear what she had to say, and I left impressed with what I heard. When I got home, I jumped on to...

I met with a friend today for a little spiritual direction. Actually, he's going to meet with me each week from now until Christmas.As homework and for my prayer, he gave me three Scripture passages: 1 Corinthians 13 (love), 2 Corinthians 4:8-11 (stress), and Matthew 6:25-33). Of the three, the passage from Matthew had the most meaning for me.

I realized that if I was going to get better quickly, I needed to take it easy. I don't know about you, but taking it easy...

OK, friends, it's about 100 degrees where I am today, and it's just too darn hot to think about making soup. So, as we move into the summer months, Soup on Saturdays may sometimes have something other than soup.

Last night, I was asked to...
