One of the most popular blogs in the world is written by Leo Babauta. I think his post below will resonate with a lot of the readers here at Making All Things New.

Editor's Note: This is a guest post from Todd Burrier of toddburrier.com

I admit that my glasses are...

The other day, I realized that it had been a very long time since I posted anything about type II diabetes. Recently, one of the people from my church asked me to meet with her.She had just been diagnosed with pre diabetes, and she was scared.

One year ago today, I published my first post on Making All Things New:

Since I started this blog last March, I've been writing about the great need to work on improving our overall health. I've brought up the shocking statistic that by the year 2050 one in three Americans will have Type II diabetes.Those with ethnic backgrounds will have it even worse.

As I was first beginning makingallthingsnew, I spent a lot of time checking out the blogs which focused on diabetes.

Then, in one of his posts, I...

Over the last couple of weeks, I've asked some friends to write something for my blog. I think it makes sense to hear someone else's voice from time to time, and I hope you'll appreciate it too.

Jeff studied sports medicine in college, and now works in the physical therapy field, helping people get themselves...
