I've been attending some conferences down in Virginia the past few days and am glad to be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. I always enjoy traveling, but there's no place like home :) Although I don't usually read the USA Today newspaper, there's always plenty of them at hotels.So, this morning I picked one up on my way down to get some coffee, and on the front page was a huge article about...

Thanks for everyone who was praying for our Faith Fights Diabetes meeting this morning. To say that it was a success would be an understatement. I don't know how many people will ultimately sign up to help with this initiative, but there is no question in my mind that our message resonated with the nearly sixty people who came.The statistics are simply too hard to ignore. I talked about some...

This picture of Old Faithful in Yellowstone was taken the other day by my brother Don. Right about now, he's headed home from a two-week trip throughout the Great Plains.

I think the key to it all is finding...

He never stopped trying, he never saw himself a failure. His persistence paid off.Did you know that over a span of thirty years, Abraham Lincoln repeatedly failed at business, love and politics before becoming the President...

Yesterday, I was out visiting some blogs dealing with diabetes, and there was some excitement about a new venture, D-Feast Friday's. Bloggers post their favorite recipes that are greattasting and diabetic friendly. Since it seems like the Zucchini-Corn Quesadillas I've been making lately have become quite a hit, I thought it would be a great recipe to contribute. It's also a tasty way to...

I feel like I've been on a crazy amusement park ride the past week, one with plenty of fun but lots of twists and turns. I'm ready for a little r and r, and hopefully things will settle down a bit. I have a lot of things to catch up on.A couple of days ago, I met with some local healthcare folks, and they loved the idea of an outreach linking faith communities to diabetes education. I could...

Faith Fights Diabetes. According to the ad, if faith communities got involved with helping people better understand diabetes, many more people would be able to either avoid getting the disease, or they would be better equipped to deal with it.Of course, the ad piqued my curiosity, and when I got back from the retreat, I jumped on my computer and learned all I could about this organization....
